Who is the most boring superhero

Sat.1 is showing one of "the 20 most boring films of all time", which we think is damn great

In 2017, the electronics manufacturer Samsung had a 68-minute YouTube film made that shows little more than a washing machine doing the laundry. The publication was accompanied by a survey of 2,000 British people about the most boring films in cinema history. "Noah" by "The Wrestler" director Darren Aronofsky landed on 18th place alongside works such as "Rendezvous with Joe Black" or "The Tree Of Life" (both with Brad Pitt).

Tonight, the star-studded flood epic with Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Anthony Hopkins will be running on Sat.1 from 10:50 p.m. - and we can only say: We found the film back in 2014 when it was in German Cinemas is up, pretty great ...

After Cain slew his brother Abel out of jealousy, sinfulness conquered the earth. Only Noah (Russell Crowe), chosen by God, who sees a mighty flood coming in his dreams, can now ensure that earthly life is not completely extinguished. So he and his family build a huge ark so that humanity can get a second chance ...

Darren Aronofsky (“Requiem For A Dream”, “Black Swan”) does not stage the well-known story as a classic Bible film in the tradition of “The Ten Commandments”; instead, the pre-Flood part of the film turns out to be enriched with surreal elements Mix of “Mad Max 3” and “The Lord of the Rings”, while “Noah” develops into an intense psychological drama after the water has run off.

That is why “Noah” is not a typical film for the Christmas program - because he consistently thinks ahead of the well-known story from the Bible, which might not suit some devout Christians. How, for example, does Noah cope with the burden of only being able to save his family while the rest of humanity perishes miserably? Especially now that the fight for the distribution of the corona vaccine has begun, it is no longer just a purely theoretical or theological question ...

Nevertheless, in the end, the brilliance of the directing and the sheer visual power of "Noah" are in the foreground - and this is our conclusion: A visionary director dedicates himself to the biblical Noah figure and shapes the material in his very own way into an intense cinematic- Experience with a lot of emotion and spectacular images.

The 20 most boring movies of all time

Incidentally, “Noah” is by no means the only film in which we ask ourselves what it is doing in such a list. In addition to obvious pipe crap like "Batman & Robin" there is a whole series of films in the top 20 that are generally considered to be timeless classics rather than excruciating boredom:
