The Revenant is one of the best films ever created.

I don’t like how this film was made just to give Leo an Oscar. His performance isn’t even great. Gleeson and hardy outshine him

I watched it twice. The camera work of first 30 minutes are so are pretty great. But I remember feeling disappointed with parts of the middle of the movie up until the pursuit at the end. The worst scene is where he rides off the cliff on the horse. It's trash. I will probably watch it again though in a few years. I do love the fade to credits at the end with the breathing after he sees his wife.
how was that scene trash? not to mention its followed up by one of the most memorable scenes in the movie where he goes inside the horse

Thought it was an incredible film but walked out knowing I’d never want to watch it again..which isn’t a bad thing.

Birdman’s better as a film.

Absolutely agreed. Kind of sucks this got him his first Oscar when Wolf of Wallstreet and OUATIH produced better performances from him.

There's getting mauled by a a bear and then there's American Indians have spaghetti aim like a Star Wars storm trooper against one guy who is sleeping when they approach. It really jumps the shark there for me. I don't know the original book but it seemed like a convenience to get; HORSE DIES therefore GET INSIDE HORSE. Obviously can't have him kill the horse to survive because people don't like animals getting killed.

The CGI is awful!



We're expected to believe they just up and left assuming he died from the fall even after he shot them, but of course "there's a storm rolling in so they had to leave him". I think it could've been done differently. No Indians, just the freeze coming and the horse meeting its end naturally?

The soundtrack is pretty perfect for the movie. Really surprised Ryuichi Sakamoto was involved.

I rarely forget movies. I know I’ve watched this movie but i can’t remember when or any plot besides survival.

I remember it had good cinematography, a bear fight, and got Leo the Oscar finally.

I watched the bear scene on Netflix recently and I'll say that audio on Netflix is absolutely pure dog shit. I need to get this on 4K stat.

Great imagery, memorable indian attack, and great bear scene. But I don't want to watch it again.

Also felt like they designed the movie to get a B rate actor an Oscar. He's a "game manager" type QB.
 

Rest

All these years later I still chuckle at what a fucking moron that guy is.

I don't know how they made a movie about a guy getting mauled by a bear and living so boring, but they managed it. I couldn't sit through it.
