Podcast: Noah, Top 3 Religious-Themed Characters, The Royal Tenenbaums – Episode 58
This week on the InSession Film Podcast, DJ and Matthew from Simplistic Reviews joins us as we discuss the controversial Darren Aronofsky film, Noah, starring Russel Crowe, Emma Watson among many others. Going off of that, we discuss our Top 3 Religious-Themed Characters, which doesn’t necessarily imply religion specifically but rather the themes it represents. And finally, we continue our Wes Anderson Movie Series with one of his best, The Royal Tenenbaums, starring the Wilson brothers, Gene Hackman, Bill Murray and many others.
Due to our lengthy, in-depth discussion about Noah, we moved our Movies We’ve Seen This Week segment to the post credits of the show, but we promise, the Noah discussion was worth the time. DJ and Matthew are some of the funniest people we know and they were absolute fantastic guests. Please go check out their podcast as it will easily be worth your time. They are a little bit more colorful than we are, but still a great show.
While Noah has been surrounded in controversy, this show doesn’t necessarily reflect religion or about Christianity but rather the themes it represents and how it effects the characters within the film. In order to take our conversation to the depths needed for this review, our discussion of Noah is very SPOILER-filled, so keep that in mind up front.
Anyway, check out the show and have fun listening to this week’s podcast. Let us know what you think in the comment section below and thanks for listening!
– Noah Movie Review (6:28)
– Top 3 Religious-Themed Characters (45:21)
As mentioned up front, this Top 3 doesn’t have to be a religious character specifically, but rather the themes that religion represent. Of course, there are many religious characters one could have on their list, but they didn’t have to be. Despite your personal beliefs, religion does offer many themes and values that we’ve seen in many characters in almost every movie ever made. It also brings us that famous good vs evil element that has been the big fight for as long as man as walked the earth. And when you put it into those terms, there are many great characters to choose from.
That being said, which religious themed characters would be in your Top 3?
