Reviews for "Noah" by Darren Aronofsky starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins & Emma Watson are out. Came across some good percentage of favorable ones, but the tickling part is that it looks like the reviewers are taking precautious steps not to slash the movie down, fearing it could turn into all time master piece film work like The Fountain when indepth views start to folow in (LoL).
And the funniest was a straight forward one, which I liked very much, that says "Noah is better than the book".
Another one even goes to an extent to cover all the scales, just to be sure : "Noah floods the screen and mind" (but inside the "mind" particle was missing). Now they can go either side, whichever way the stone is turned (LoL).
Releasing here in France on 09/04. Check the trailer if you have not yet done it.

Excuses for the late reply (think you would have watched the movie by this time ... anyway) :

Lego-The Movie, begs and borrows its story from almost every single animation movie out there, but what makes it interesting is that it can be funny in most parts, the whole Lego set up was kind of different and few "you-already-know-me" characters sprinkle their charm in their Lego Getups.
Lego-The Movie - Amusing but misses the Awesome factor

Watched Devil wears Prada - what a performance by Streep!
Also watched The Call - thrilling to the end with psycho kind of ending
Never argue with a fool or he will drag you down to his level and beat you at it through sheer experience!

[And if you had hit the repeat button on the teaser, then you are a FAN just like me, welcome to the club of Expendables)
And now for the 1 min Trailer :

Expendables 3 - Lots to digest !

Remeber the cult Spanish series on found footage REC !?!
Here is the volume 4 : [REC] Apocalypse
[+18 for few distrubing scenes]
A bit disappointed how the series is shaping up. Eventhough it retains the principle characters from 1&2, the found footage ambience is missing. Liked the way it was editted and presented, but part 4 looks like a cheesy zombie slasher movie. Well, got to wait and watch !
