  1. Hello Bruce. I saw “The Revenant” yesterday and I have to say that is a very well done film. It is brutal and harsh. The cinematography of the Canadian Rockies and wilderness is superb. The plot is so similar to 1971’s “Man in the Wilderness” but with some more interesting plot elements. This is not an uplifting film but it is so well made under what looks like very harsh conditions that it may very well win the Oscar for Best Picture this year. I gave “Man in the Wilderness” three and a half stars of five (B) and “The Revenant” four and a half stars (A-).

    1. Hey Lyle….thanks for the mini-review. That is a excellent rating….because I know how much you liked Man in the Wilderness. I thought for awhile that Spotlight was going to win Best Picture….but as we get into the last days before the Oscar show…I think it is going to be The Revenant early and often when the awards get announced. Your comment got me motivated to update this page…going with the assumption that Leo wins…this will be his top ranked movie in my ranking system. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Hey Helakoski….he has grown on me the last few years. I was not a fan at all when he was a skinny young guy….but as he has matured he has won me over. Sure be a great Oscar moment when he gets his overdue Oscar.

  2. Hi

    Just got back after seeing The Revenant. I have to say it is a very powerful movie. It’s not exactly for the faint hearted. If you’re looking for an upbeat happy clappy movie, then look elsewhere. DiCaprio was incredible, he definitely gave the role 100% and if he wins the Oscar, it’ll be well deserved. Tom Hardy is also superb. The young actor, Will Poulter, was excellent and the man who played the Indian Chief, his face alone deserves an Oscar.
    Definitely worth seeing and if it wins Best Film, Director etc, I won’t be complaining.

    1. Hey Chris…thanks for the mini-review on The Revenant. It looks like this is Leo’s year. Almost talked my wife into seeing it on Monday….but she read a review that got her to want to avoid that one. So we saw The Big Short instead (which we both liked)….hoping to see Leo’s performance before he gets his Oscar. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Hey Chris….after last night’s Golden Globes….I am thinking The Revenant is going to do very well come Oscar nomination morning (next week) and Oscar show night. I see Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director going to that mean old bear and all of his crew. Thanks for stopping by.
