When Rev Simon Carver isn't in the cinema - chomping popcorn and reviewing to his heart's content - he can be found at Dagnall Street Baptist Church where he is senior minister.
Christian film-goers need not worry whether Ridley Scott has done to Moses what Darren Aronofsky did to Noah. Scott’s epic retelling of the Exodus story is far more faithful than Aronofsky’s idiosyncratic version of Noah and the flood. No stone creatures in Exodus, just plenty of eyeliner and slightly camp snake-handling (not in a Mark 16 way) along with lashings of sword and spear play, skies full of arrows and chariot racing aplenty. In short, this is a pretty faithful retelling of the Exodus story. This means that Christians who are easily offended when asked to use their imaginations need have nothing to fear.
