The story of Noah as it is written in the King James Bible is about three pages. If you want to Google it, read it, then come back to this you can go ahead. I'll wait here as I continue to stream some of Clint Mansell's spooky and enthralling score to the new Darren Aronofsky film starring Russell Crowe.
Back? Yeah, so, not a whole heck of a lot there. But did you catch the tiny references to things you may not recall from Sunday School? The “giants in the Earth” and the “flaming sword”? These are the pools from which Aronofsky irrigates his 'Noah.' This is, to adopt a phrase, the “old, weird Bible,” and its visual language more resembles 'Lord of the Rings' than any typical sandal epic.

Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' released a new trailer hosted by Emma Watson that plays up the film's love story and gives a pretty epic look at the film. From all evidence it's going to be a divisive movie, as the film just hosted its world premiere and got a mixed reaction.

Russell Crowe goes from Christian allegory in 'Man of Steel' to the actual Bible days in Paramount's first 'Noah' trailer. The footage made the rounds at religious conferences, but now it has debuted online for all to see.

Sofia Coppola ('Marie Antoinette,' 'Lost in Translation') returns with a new movie about a real-life group of privileged LA teens who invaded the homes of celebrities to steal their clothing and jewelry. Unfortunately, 'The Bling Ring' is as vacant as the homes these kids pillage.

'The Bling Ring' Review

It wasn't until around 40 minutes into 'The Bling Ring' when I realized that, in no way, was this movie supposed to be "fun" or even "enjoyable." That's when I let down my guard, one that had instinctively risen as soon as I encountered the film's despicable characters. And that's when I realized this movie was a little bit brilliant.
Unlike 'Spring Breakers,' which butters you up with ebullience before crashing your mellow with its frenzied social commentary, 'The Bling Ring' is a dark and surprisingly plain-spoken peek at vapid and defiantly unlikable people. Once you break past the wall of resistance – a reasonable response might be to just up and leave the theater after 20 minutes – something of a transformation occurs. As an anthropological work, Sofia Coppola's true-crime tale of high school bandits stealing the designer shoes and gaudy jewelry of the TMZ crowd, is actually a remarkable, albeit dark and depressing affair. It is a challenging work and a unique film.
