Glenn made headlines for his honest critique of the soon-to-be-released Noah, director Darren Aronofsky’s action-packed film adaptation of Noah’s Ark. Glenn is not the only critic to call the movie’s “aggressive environmentalism” and loose interpretation of the Biblical tale into question. In fact, the negative buzz was so bad, Paramount Pictures executives invited Glenn and his team to a private screening of the film last weekend in order to shed some light on the editorial decisions that were made.
Russell Crowe stars as Noah in the film, and he is making the rounds ahead of the movie’s release tomorrow. During an appearance on Good Morning America Wednesday, Crowe lashed out at detractors – claiming their critiques are “bordering on absolute stupidity.”

Ironically, contrary to Crowe’s belief, Glenn and Pat did actually see the movie. And yet they still fail to understand what Aronofsky was trying to accomplish.
“When we got to Los Angeles and got the call that he invited us to the movie, we had an open mind. We wanted to be persuaded. We wanted to the like it,” Pat concluded. “I didn’t care about what they were trying to do. What mattered was what they did to Noah, prophet of God. That’s what mattered most to me. And for him to say it was ‘respectful and potent.’ I guess that’s a matter of opinion. Mine is not so much.”
