My dad has always said that he refuses to regret any choices he has made, and I know his life has not been an easy one. I, unfortunately do regret some of the choices I have made. I can’t help myself from the regret, they were bad choices, but I can’t be sorry for the lessons learned. If I could turn back time, would making better choices get me to a better place? Probably not. I needed those lessons. I had to learn some things the hard way. I think going through a divorce is probably the most difficult thing I have experienced. There are so many emotions, along with so many decisions to make. That was the time that I wondered the most if I could have done things differently, because the pain from the decisions didn’t just harm me. Being a part of causing my children pain has been the biggest regret of my life.
I haven’t watched it, so that’s half of the two tickets he paid for. I really wasn’t interested in seeing it before reading this though, so I don’t know that it counts for much.

In fact, if I learned anything from Noah, it’s this: despite popular perception, you can often judge a book by its cover. Also, giant deformed rock monsters make for awkward supporting characters.
We’ll meditate on that second item in a moment, but it’s the first point that should be especially emphasized.
Christians: you’ll hear people insist that you can’t criticize the movie until you’ve seen it. Noticeably, the loudest voices in this camp are the ones who will (rather coincidentally, I’m sure) profit immensely if you meet their challenge.
You can hate this film without watching it, for the same reason…
