Faith Driven Consumer: NOAH Movie Misses the Boat

NOAH Receives 2 out of 5 Stars in Faith-Friendly Film Rating, Leaving Paramount with an Epic Missed Opportunity

RALEIGH, N.C., March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Faith Driven Consumer — the group behind the recent IStandWithPhil.com movement which played a leading role in Phil Robertson's return to Duck Dynasty — is tracking the commercial viability of major Hollywood films courting faith audiences this year. During 2014, the Year of the Bible Movie, studios are targeting 46 million Faith Driven Consumers who spend $1.75 trillion annually. The organization's new Faith-friendly Film Reviews use five specific criteria to measure the compatibility of entertainment products for Faith Driven Consumer audiences.

Paramount's movie NOAH – a movie that Paramount asserts is inspired by the Biblical story in Genesis – rates a faith-friendly 2 out of 5 stars. 

Chris Stone, a Certified Brand Strategist and founder of Faith Driven Consumer, has issued the following statement:

"In the run up to the release of Noah, we asked our Faith Driven Consumer community whether or not they would be satisfied with a Biblically-themed movie – designed to appeal to them – which replaces the Bible's core message with one created by Hollywood, and 98% responded that they would not. Despite a flood of media stories over many months indicating that the film replaces the Biblical account with a modernistic, revisionist narrative, we remained hopeful that ultimately the filmmakers would get it right, and would be successful in reaching their target consumer audience.

"Having now seen Noah, we are disappointed to report that the film misses the boat.

"Noah is a significant departure both from the Biblical narrative and message, and Faith Driven Consumers are likely not going to spend their hard-earned dollars on an entertainment product that fails to resonate.

"The recent successes of films such as Son of God and God's not Dead clearly demonstrate that there is a significant, largely untapped market for faith-friendly films, which Hollywood now recognizes. As stated in our Open Letter to Hollywood, Faith Driven Consumer remains committed to advocating for entertainment choices that appeal to 46 million people who spend $1.75 trillion annually.

"In the case of Noah, Paramount has left untold millions of dollars on the table. This movie will be remembered by the faith community as an epic missed opportunity."

Faith Driven Consumer's Faith-friendly Film Reviews are based on five core criteria:

Overall Faith and/or Biblical Relevance: NOAH scored 2 out of 5 stars
Faith-compatible Depiction of Characters and Character Relationships:  NOAH scored 2 out of 5 stars
Faith-compatible Depiction of Situations: NOAH scored 2.5 out of 5 stars
Family Viewing Suitability: NOAH scored 2 out of 5 stars
Entertainment Value: NOAH scored 1.5 out of 5 stars
Paramount's Noah an overall 2 out of 5 stars, meaning that NOAH will likely not resonate with Faith Driven Consumers.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
