everyone keeps wanting a marvel happy superhero with wise cracking morally superior heroes that never really deal with the consequences of their actions. This was meant to be dark and humorless. Doomsday is the monster that is unkillable, how do you make that light hearted. Was DC supposed to just make an avengers movie?
Ohh shut up your the peace shit that never satisfied with a fucking movie there a dam reason why shit was left unanswered also of course shit will be dark after the man of steel asshole a fucking city started blowing up people died just watch marvel movies if you want happy good times there more I can say but I don't wanna be here long you peace of shit read comics
Fantastic movie, fantastic review. So much depth in this movie what with details about all sorts of prejudice relating to the sex, race, and/or ethnicity of a person.
I'm not a Trump fan, nor a right-winger. But your comment shows the
You forgot Eddie & The Cruisers II... Thank God It's Friday.
Thanks for writing, Trump fans. I didn't say ALL right-wingers are morons, and there are morons on the left as well (Bernie Bros, for instance). But to assume this is only a kids' movie is to seriously miss its wide-ranging implications and ideals, most targeted toward the sort of racial and xenophobic intolerance being used as the platform by the right's current hero.
Love to see a review of a movie about diversity filled with hatred and vitriol directed at a group you don't like. Just an editorial note for the future: self righteous bigotry is an ugly thing.
I think it is great that you begin the discussion of a movie built around diversity by naming an entire group as morons. Self righteous bigotry is so unbecoming.
Love how this tool brings politics into a review of a kids movie.
Loved the movie, and the subtext. Also, I'm a right-wing moron.
Don't you have to have a certain skill level to become a movie reviewer. Isn't there any type of test? All I can say is that the movie was very entertaining, Joseph Fiennes played his role of the fictional character Clavius very well, the supporting cast was good and there were even a few comedic elements woven into the story. Go watch it. You'll enjoy it.
Uh oh, sounds like someone was offended that his hero Rush was lambasted. And shouldn't you have been at church Sunday morning instead of playing on the Internet?
I don't know how you manage to include references to Rush Limbaugh in a review about a movie that illustrates something that happened two thousand years ago but . . . oh wait . . . OF COURSE I do.
Next time, try to REVIEW THE MOVIE instead of upchucking your empty political opinion during a time when you're supposed to be "doing your job" as a "Professional Movie Watcher" . . . which is ludicrous at best.
Thirty minutes of story (less than most single episodes of '60's and 70's TV westerns), an hour of DiCaprio grunting and groaning, all wrapped around an insult to both whites and Native Americans in history. The whites are portrayed mostly as cruel and greedy and the Indians as mostly insensible and murdering; barbarians all. Ah, but attention to detail as DiCaprio had to carefully remove all his cloths after gutting his horse and then laying inside the belly. Little concern for the physical impossibilty of so many of the situations, the bear mauling but no antibiotics or treatment, the swimming in icy waters, no fire in winter. Reminiscent of the mindlessness of Apocalypto.
I couldn't disagree more; Tom Hardy's performance as Fitzgerald was spectacular and he's fully deserving of the nomination. One of the best actors in the business.
Brilliantly shot - makes the viewer feel You're there. Going to see it again with a crew. Movie is liong but still Resonates. In fact, Not sure, if some reviewers a tually watched Revenant given the utter repellant tone.
Personally, I couldn't agree more with this review. Regardless of the fact that this was a beautifully shot, and exceptionally well made film, it was also painfully too long, and frankly pretty boring. I equate this to "all sizzle, no steak." But of course, this is just my opinion, and is in no way intended to provoke or enrage any of the tough guys in the comments section.
Thanks for writing, everyone -- even Jessey with his unsettling fascination with flatulence. Wow, looks like that Golden Globe win emboldened heretofore meek fanboys to come out in full force!
What a crappy little review.
Haven't seen it yet, but I want to. It looks really good. Also I happen to like Mel Gibson's so-called snuff films THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST and APOCALYPTO. Those were viscerally powerful films. Oh yeah it won the Golden Globe Award for Best Picture (Drama) by the way.
