Hollywood's idea of biblical?  I heard that the name of God isn't mentioned in the movie, not even once!

As my friends and I said when we saw the first trailer, "it could be really good or really bad."

I had the feeling it would be "really bad" and it sounds like I was right.  Won't be on my list to go see.

Understanding that Hollywood takes some liberties with Biblical movies I was tempted to see it.    I'm sure the real Story was not exactly the homogenized story you learned in Sunday School, and there was a lot more to why God needed to start over, but Rock People?  really?

Once adrift it turns into the movie The Shining, and Noah is trying to kill his family, breaking down doors to get to them and all in some murder suicide attempt. His reason is that God only wanted him to save the animals and once that deed was done there was no longer any need for humans. (man bad  - animals good)

There was no "real story."  There was no Noah.

Old Testament writers adopted the Gilgamesh epic to deal with a great flood.  All the characters and the narrative are adaptive.

And where did the Gilgamesh epic come from? Thin air?

The Bible admits that Abraham's predecessors lived in Babylonia (the Euphrates is even mentioned in the creation narrative), so of course Gilgamesh (the only text from that era that survives) would have been among the sources the Bible writers used.

As for the "rock people," the Noah narrative mentions "nephilim," typically conceived as giants. They weren't good guys, though. They were the bastard children of spirits who raped women.
