Any notion that Noah, the latest film from Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, is going to be a Sunday school retelling of the well-known Genesis tale is utterly obliterated once we see fallen angels – termed ‘The Watchers’ – envisaged as giant rock monsters. It’s the weirdest liberty in a film teeming with them, and it’s not hard to see why there’s been much controversy surrounding the reimagining leading up to its release. For those willing to roll with Aronofsky’s ambitious endeavour, there is a thoughtful and entertaining film to be found. At least, up until the final act.
Once again, summer blockbuster season is upon us! As the summer blockbuster mash-up I did last year proved quite the hit, I’ve decided to make it an annual fixture. For the past three months, I have toiled over the 2014 edition, and it gives me great pleasure to post the finished version today, EXCLUSIVE to AMONymous. Enjoy, comment, share, and most importantly…ENJOY THIS YEAR’S SUMMER BLOCKBUSTERS!
