It's hard to write a clear plot summary just concerning this film as it's the second film in a series, I have to assume you have some knowledge of the series otherwise I'll be writing out summaries of the whole series. I'll put in a link to finding out more about THG in general though, thank you for your suggestions. by taleoftwobooks
I think the plot outline is a little bit confusing for somebody who has no idea what a Hunger Game is. It would have been great to know why you thought the acting was so good. by dee7778

Russell Crowe needs to go home and try it again.
Review of Noah by uniquegirl

Advantages: The movie did end

FIRST IMPRESSIONS I was very excited when I saw the first trailer because they showed all the animals going into the ark very slowly with a back drop of sun shining into the ark and the scene was gorgeous. I am always excited to go see a movie th ... Read review

And incidentally, why do you assume all those who are rating you negatively are 'atheists'? An atheist is a person who does not believe in any god whereas they could just as easily be followers of one of the many other gods, in which case I am sure they would be offended to be called atheists. Or are you using the term 'atheist' in a derogatory manner in which case they could also rightly take offence. by buzios
Re-rating as helpful as in truth it is helpful to people with beliefs like yourself who may want to avoid the film due to it's lack of adherence to the bible story. However, I cannot rate higher as it is not very helpful to anybody who is looking for a review of the film based upon it's artistic merit. by buzios

Noah
Review of Noah by goldenbat666

Advantages: Great performances, excellent visual effects, interesting take on a limited story
Disadvantages: Sudden time jumps diminishing the story's grand effect, personal drama not so well handled

When it comes to telling the story of Noah, the biblical figure who built an arc and saved his family and a pair of every living animal on the planet from a massive flood the vengeful God sent down from the heavens, director Darren Aronofsky is already at ... Read review

Not What You Were Expecting.
Review of Noah by ChattyPants

Advantages: It is a descent movie to watch.
Disadvantages: Does not portray biblical facts.

Noah was, for me, a let down. It was a good movie, and somewhat entertaining, but not entertaining in the way you would think. This story was based off of the story of Noah in the bible (Geneses 5:28-9). Once again the results of a bible based story d ... Read review

Hi - you need a bit more detail to get higher ratings. I have to say that your comment that it does not portray 'biblical facts' a bit of an oxymoron. Films often play around with the source material for the sake of entertainment but what is important about the film is whether the end result is commendable for a variety of different reasons. I have not seen this yet and am still debating whether I want to - I need to see more detailed reviews about the film itself and its qualities (or lack of them). by buzios
I say that this is boring yet entertaining for a few reasons. First off it was entertaining because of the actors and actresses. They did very well in their parts. A few were Emma Watson, Russell Crowe, and Kevin Durand, whom are some of my favorite actors. I say it is an over all good movie because of their acting. It was also quite boring because of how the story is put together. It did not hold my attention. The only thing that saved Noah, in my opinion is the fantastic actors. I was not impressed with the movie, but I do support the actors hard work. Any further questions I will be happy to answer. by ChattyPants

You Might Want It, But Do You Really Need It?
Review of Need For Speed (DVD) by afy9mab

Advantages: Great stunt driving and plenty of action.

Review of Skyfall (DVD) by Daniel1995

Advantages: Classic Bond, good villian
Disadvantages: Not as many Bond fights as other films

Skyfall is Daniel Craig's third film as James Bond and in my opinion his best! Gripping storyline with a lot of the film based in London also part in Turkey! A classic Bond car makes a return and all in all its a classic Bond film in my opinion. Highly r ... Read review

A whirlwind of guns, boobs and hyperviolence
Review of Bitch Slap (DVD) by elwood_jones

Advantages: Fun characters and moves at a quick place with a neo-grindhouse charm
Disadvantages: Not for everyones tastes, while comes with an overwelming sense of familiarity

Honestly I was kind of unsure whether I'd get on with "Bitch Slap" especially seeing how it came off in the trailers like an indie remake of Russ Meyer's "Faster Pussycat Kill Kill" which although it might not have turned out to be, it is still a film whi ... Read review
