4.0 out of 5 stars Odd but entertaining, 27 Aug 2014
What an odd movie. I think by the end I thought this is more about man vs environment than some religious devotion movie. I as curious as to what motivated Aaronofsky to direct this, and it's mix of fantasy mixed in with the bible story and the environmental issues, kind of made it clearer but still, odd but I enjoyed the epic nature of it. The Icelandic landscape in much of the shots is awesome. I did find the whole procreation from one family very ... Uncomfortable. Biblical stories are contradictory aren't they?

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Easy to set up. Took 10 minutes from unpacking to full working order and using the hotspot extender at the other end of the flat. Would have taken less time if it weren't for having to rearrange already plugged-in things to an extension plug since the BT extender and hotspot units require to be directly in wall mains (not into electricity socket extensions).

My home is quite long in shape so the main wifi router is close to the phone socket in the lounge which is opposite end of the flat to bedroom and also balcony, so with the extender now having a hotspot at the master bedroom end, there is powerful wifi signal throughout the home, including out on the balcony which is also… Read more
