I saw over the weekend and there have been some really really good reviews. There was a lot of controversy surrounding this -- leading up to its release which meant that a lot of people went out to say it's no was number one at the box office this past weekend. I don't think it will be number one again next week. And while there had been some very good reviews. I didn't like it. Now whenever he's in Hollywood takes on the Bible there will be controversy. And no was no exception. The story of the movie was taken from the biblical story of Noah and his -- from Genesis. And the criticism came from Christians many Christians who said. That the movie did not accurately tell the story of -- in the Bible. And the word god was never use creator was the reference. To god but that might actually be in accordance with the way people refer to god in those times. Much of the criticism from Christians. Came from Christians who hadn't even seen the movie yet and based their condemnation. On thinks that they heard about the movie and sadly that is really expected. Of of many overly sensitive Christians who were looking for excuses to bash Hollywood in the media for misrepresenting their faith. It's a movie. And know what should be going to a movie expecting a Bible -- you go to church for that you go to somebody's house that I do do that in year old home. Movies are for entertainment.

In a text number he's a 77 here's a -- reason scoot I completely disagree. I went to the movie expecting to see the illustration of what happened in the Bible considering it is based off the Bible. -- it seems like dispersant actually agrees with me I I didn't like the movie at all. I here's a Texas has -- you were wrong they took a civil from the Bible. A strong symbol of people's faith. And used that platform. And that notoriety. To their benefit. Giving no honor to the story they -- they should have named it. The man. And the boat. Why is sit there it's why is it that some Christians not all Christians but why is -- that some Christians are so sensitive about its. This is not even a Christian story percent. Know what's in the old testament. So there -- other religions that could be upset. I didn't like the movie no I've I've thought it was a wasted time effect -- -- told my date a couple of times that says hey I hope you're not too bored I'm I'm I'm sorry but I had to concede it's. In the Bible the watchers. Are refers to angels. In the movie know what the watchers. Are the rock people. Piles of rocks transformed into living angelic creatures that help -- and his family. This is why I think it's the Bible meets transformers. Even with the suspension of reality. He was difficult to accept that these giant creatures made out of rocks had feelings and could even be key element to kill a rock. And then there was criticism of the movie for addressing climate change before the rain began. But frankly it was so subtle than any criticism of the use of the movie to promote that liberal agenda of climate change which really unwarranted. And another point in the movie a man was making a sword like weapon in fire. He was wearing a -- helmet. The movie was in the first book of the Bible. And heavily wilders helmet from -- is a very Euro and heavy W good morning. And one group and an urgency that the ended the morning you know it on it and I think. -- -- and personal. I'm a bad attitude and movement but it I would like but that's about it. -- -- move to know like any movie about. We've been hurt and there it is like Linkedin and even -- it. It would dramatic epic kitchen of the epidemic that may have been in -- too much over. Roommate field but the ultimate look at my license with what he thought would -- well in my. -- and I -- another criticism of the movie because the the director is not a religious person in tech I've by believe he's actually an atheist. Now if he was religious he might have prayed to god about whether or not he should have done in the movie in the -- I know would have told -- pay duty to do it like that don't bother. No it's secret bunker at the epidemic is what. Rick what is that what you don't -- -- it's it's. Adaptation of some of the tour event you don't meet a bit of maybe -- But a lot of people a lot people -- myself -- the Bible. Moments -- Had little notes that they'll know that there are effects equals -- stick them in its. Look I don't look illegal political will that they are not the actual story -- some -- the issue of what it looked like. Terry I think that's a good attitude to have when you go to movie in a political show have -- -- a morning so what was the best movie. What what movie made you really feel good about religion. What was a really good movie about god. Or about Jesus. I would talk about there will be no number one the box office I saw over the weekend did not like it at all now that's gonna cause some people to say -- scoots bashing christianity. Bastion of bad movie and I bashing christianity. If you rejoice that economy this morning -- numbers 2601872. -- free 8668890. Point seven. In a text number is 8787. It's 730 and scoot -- for Tommy Tucker here's a WWL news updates repeatedly. David affectionately like to moving -- I've -- -- it was too long and I'm not a scifi fan and I I think if you're gonna spend money to go see the movie -- you need to. You need to ask yourself or UA Bible freak and a scifi freak. Because to me it was like the Bible meets transformers really -- -- -- like it like ours down why no would be so I thought. Well just. It was this it was the manifestation of the angels as the rock peoples these giants -- people line again I just it was a little weird I'm not a scifi guy I admitted. That is not my favorite genre. And I wish or the animals animals -- the animals that was a lot of animation. By its understand they didn't use one wives -- him don't know his life animation. It was kind of if -- system a little bit weird but I. I found myself at times catching myself because I'm watching the movie and going all this is just unbelievable. And that I had to consider how many stories in the Bible are unbelievable there -- some real jerseys in the Bible I think about a modern -- reference all right there's a lot it's really amazing about that this is definitely a movie where. But the book is better than the movie yet. I got you but every once in a mission to -- was -- a scene with a guy was making them. Making a sword. In fire and he was wearing a -- Mean this is the old testament -- -- yeah I'm not even sure why he was -- ago wilders helmet make in the fire anyway but again I just thought it was a little straight. A really nice. Meaningful message in the movie about talking about god the creator punishing man and woman for unholy behavior not taking care of the earth it. -- nice message about. How men should men and women should not be. A vengeful toward each other should not -- each other and how we should be responsible for taking care of the innocents and the innocents word were the animals. Strong messages that OK I we're totally distracted by a blizzard to prolong yourself to -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And I can't just regular movie offered to optimize had. But I would say just in general what I've seen lately either at the theater. They could shop thirty minutes easily him off the thing and you'd be just fine yeah at end of the part about knowing the Bible isn't that long anyway. Side I thought I was fortunate I did I did not like it put. -- since art and and entertainment are so subjective I don't wanna tell you not ago but -- unless you're really into the Bible and scifi. I would I would go to the theater. I'd take ten dollars sort out the -- the cardinal. You would have still lost the money but -- we should you wish your time won't carry I would assure that what's what's -- movie that comes to mind that you think was a really good religious movie. Religious movie yeah -- on. A born. It's directed at the thing I'm not -- -- the -- here ballot the passion of Christ abandon her. In her I want you out I thought that was very strong. Bruce almighty somebody mentioned that. I I love the movie oh god was George crawled -- and parade.

Monday night you like it was a good -- What do by Jesus Christ superstar. Very controversial believe it came out in the early seventies. Very very controversial oh my god you're doing a walk on -- about Jesus that's blasphemy. And yes the -- only had a good message. Thanks to the hotel at 742. We'll be right back hundred WL. -- -- about the movie knowing it's number one at the box office there was a lot of criticism of. -- before the release of the movie that I obviously cause a lot of curiosity a lot of people went to the movies this weekend. I doubt that -- will be number one the box office next weekend this coming weekend because I just it was a a bad movie but again and -- I am not into the scifi genre and to me it was said it was like the Bible meets science fiction. A -- bloggers on our website at WW dot com titled -- movie is out. But the book. Is better it's also part of our FaceBook conversation is a comment on our FaceBook page from -- -- I prefer not to -- is an atheist my money. And -- he was directed by an atheist. Here's a comment on our FaceBook page from Paula to deviate so much from the story in the Bible it should have been called off line to. Ended done with it Mel Gibson at least kept the core story line in line with the Bible to use the Bible to get publicity. He is all of this movie has done you can join that conversation by going to our FaceBook page WWL radio. From the plus Lonnie you -- -- VW on good morning. -- Well actually there are.

There well I enjoyed our conversation and there you have a great day I don't have a problem with. The Bible taking. Creative liberties and and and the movie had no rather. Taking -- liberties and and not being specific to the Bible I don't have a problem with that I think it's okay if movies. Are based on history your biblical figures that are not totally accurate because again it's a movie. And you shouldn't go to a movie expecting history last. Or a Bible lesson you go to a movie to be entertained. To expect more than that out of a movie I think he's putting. Undue expectations on on movie producers and -- it's a documentary than.
