    Synopsis


    The Revenant
    In 1820s America, frontiersman and fur trapper Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his teenage son Hawk (Forrest Goodluck) join a pelt-gathering expedition. However, their party are attacked by Arikara Native Americans, who kill a number of the men. Glass then tries to lead the remainder of the group to safety, charting a new path to a U.S. fort. Unfortunately, he is soon mauled by a grizzly bear while hunting for food, and is horribly wounded. He is left in the care of roughneck John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy) and the young and inexperienced Jim Bridger (Will Poulter), while Hawk watches on in horror. Fitzgerald betrays him and leaves him buried alive in a shallow grave, but Glass nurses himself back to health and sets out to seek revenge. Alejandro González Iñárritu directed this pulse-pounding epic. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

      Outstanding Directing, Cinematics and Acting!

      **Three Golden Globe Awards for The Revenant.** Congratulations to Inarritu for his two Golden Globe awards for the Revenant, he took home "Best Motion Picture – Drama" and "Best Director", while Leonardo DiCaprio won "Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama" The Oscar's are next Leo, go get it! I'm not going to state the synopsis or any details about this film as there are probably countless reviews on IMDB and so forth! I'd like to start off by saying when i first seen this film's trailer, i already knew it was going to be an EPIC adventure of a film regardless if it is a remake, and a great remake it was! Outstanding director Alejandro González Iñárritu's film "the Revenant" is leaps and bounds better than the original film "the man in the wilderness"! This film not only exceeds in executing a savage and wild story but does it with such an artsy an breathtaking style! The landscape and visuals are top notch work, not to mention they filmed this with pretty much no set and with all natural lighting during freezing conditions! That right there is an accomplishment in itself, and they nailed it superbly! Big props to cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki for such great camera work! More on that in a bit! Leonardo DiCaprio as always delivers a great performance and makes you feel as if you're in his shoes going through all that chaos and cruelty people in the 1800's would have gone through, not to mention the un-merciful wilderness! Tom Hardy was equally exceptional acting as a villain! You could feel the savageness through his performance! Hair raising emotions on his part! The key factor in this film was also the great visual eye of Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki who like i stated used only natural lighting and did superb "long-shots" with no cut-scenes which knocked you right off of your feet! The intro of the film got me so hyped! Being a photographer and a somewhat inspired short video hobbyist, i could only dream of being as great as Mr. Lubezki! Such a great inspiration to us amateurs! Out of this world directing from Inarritu! Breathtaking cinematics by Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki! Superb acting performance by DiCaprio and of course Tom Hardy, not to mention Domhnall Gleeson who did an amazing job as well! This is the type of film you must see in the theaters, the experience is just heart pounding and exciting! I can't wait for this to come out on Blu-ray! I will definitely be the first to grab me a copy! -Scott S.

      The Revenant on Blu Ray

      All of my many Blue Ray reviews focus solely upon the actual quality of the film from Standard Def DVD quality to the higher standard set for Blu Ray. Summaries of the plot and opinions of the story line and acting can be found in the majority of the other reviews so I do not want to be redundant. My rating is based solely upon the Blue Ray disc's video and audio quality and not the quality of the movie itself. Keep in mind, however, that the quality of what you see and hear is also dependent upon the quality of the TV monitor you are watching on as well as the home theater set up you are using. The monitor I use is a fairly new Panasonic ZT 65" plasma and the amps, speakers, cables, OPPO 103 BluRay player and AVM-60 7.1 Atmos enabled Surround Processor I use are hi end esoteric gear to provide me with a more realistic and objective perspective. The Oppo player is not enabled to transcode Atmos audio so it will default to the next best audio coded, in this case, DTS HD MA 7.1 I am not trying to be a snob here, but just pointing out that what you see and hear is very dependent upon the quality of the gear you are using. Since there are several version releases, this one is based upon the 10th Anniversary release. I do not know if it is the extended version or not as the cover jacket does not say that it is. There are 2 discs with the 2nd disc holding the special features. VIDEO QUALITY...... The film was originally noted for having been shot under totally ambient light conditions and it shows, but in a positive way. This does not mean that there wasn't any color grading. As such, the color grading is quite natural though slightly desaturated which fits the environment of the film itself. Skin tones did appear normal and natural with no popping colors anywhere. No artifacting could be noted throughout the film. Contrast, when a scene called for it was very present but only then since the film takes place outdoors in very grey weather which, naturally, would obscure hard contrasting features or items. All in all, the video presentation was an A-. AUDIO QUALITY.... Even with a 7.1 DTS HD MA lossless codec, the audio surpassed my expectations. There was wonderful use of the surround speakers for individual audio foley effects with a bird from the left rear and the wind from the right and left sides. In fact, since there is minimal use of dialogue through much of the film, ambient audio done right as it has been in this release, is all the more important. Your LFE channel has its moments for somewhat deep bass but I wouldn't call it a bass demo track. That aside, the audio editing is excellent and deserves an A+ EXTRAS..... Tons of them regarding many segments of 'The Making Of' style of extras. I haven't watched them all yet but none appeared to be a waste of time. The download to UV went smoothly which was a surprise, but I wish I could have use iTunes as an alternative option. I do hope this review has been of some help. Thanks for reading.

      THE REVENANT MOVIE REVIEW: Apologies for this late post, I just got back from seeing this film for the second time. I wanted to collectively gather my thoughts. Plus, seeing this again I caught a few things I missed from my first viewing. So here we go! Cast: Six-time Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio, Academy Award nominee Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter. Plot: During 1823, Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) is a frontiersman out an adventure with his team in their fight for survival in the bitter landscape. When the unthinkable happens Glass' life is in the balance. Directed by Alejandro G. Inarritu (Birdman, 2014) over the period of five years in harsh conditions, this film literally changes the history of filming. Let me go through some points on why I think this is the film of the year: Performances: The performances throughout are all Oscar-worthy. Leonardo DiCaprio fully immersed himself into this character and I did not see him at all. All I saw was the character telling his story. Tom Hardy's performance was fantastic! Both Leo and Tom are incredibly smart actors by choosing these great roles because they fully trust the director on telling a compelling story. Tom Hardy dominated this film and arguably stole the film by his phenomenal portrayal of his character. At first, his accent threw me off a bit but then it gradually grew on me and I loved it! Tom proves yet again that he's willing to experiment with his performances as of late. At one point in the film, Leo's survival is clearly shown when he eats the liver from a bison. During an interview, Leo said that he actually ate a real-life liver and his reaction is shown on screen. This clearly shows to me that Leo truly cares about the authentic performance he gives and his love for films to tell this incredible story. The performances are exceptional throughout and they didn't come out of character one single bit. Story: The story of the film keeps intact throughout regarding the length of the film. The director knew what story he wanted to do and he stayed with it. Lighting: There was no studio used to make this picture it was entirely around nature. The use of natural light in this film is the real clincher. The director didn't use any artificial light to take away the landscape. Atmospheric landscapes: This film is set in the North American wilderness and was filmed in Calgary, Alberta. The acting isn't the only thing that makes the film, it is the beautifully atmospheric polar landscapes, from the vast forests to the incredible mountain ranges this film literally has it all. Overall, this is the film of the year and I completely recommend it without regret. The only flaw I have with the film is Leonardo's dream sequences. They appear quite often and at first it seems interesting. However, it starts to feel a bit pretentious because it shows up abruptly. My final verdict: 5/5 Stars!

      The idea for The Revenant is more satisfying than its realization. It's a fact many of us who have been looking forward to the film likely realized before even watching it, but nonetheless the reaction to this realization is still one that feels it witnessed something unique, or special at the very least. Throughout the course of the film I couldn't help but to keep coming back to the thought that the huge amount of effort that was so clearly put into the making of this film deserved to be seen multiple times, countless times even, but in trying to come up with a time in which I might actually want to sit down and experience this again I came up with little desire. That this was also director Alejandro González Iñárritu's follow-up to his Oscar-winning Birdman factors into the mystique of the idea of how great this film might be, never mind the fact he was collaborating with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy. And so, the "what if" thought came to mind in the form of, “what if this were made by a no-name director?" Would it be met with the same expectation? Would reactions be as critical to the leanness of the story or would the beauty of the cinematography allow that to be forgiven? Obviously, this is not the case and thus the film will be viewed and criticized for how it stacks up against Iñárritu's past works as well as the fellow awards fodder that is being released this year, but despite all of these factors that inform the here and now, the initial reactions to the film, The Revenant feels like a movie that will be around for a long time. It is a movie that will be discussed not for its large themes or the depth with which it conveys this rather simple and straight-forward story, but more for what it was able to accomplish in bringing beauty out through such brutality. That, in its own way, it was able to deliver as visceral an experience as one could have with a motion picture. This is a movie not meant to elicit a lot of intellectual pondering, but more an experience of the emotions that you drink in, let settle, and then decide if it's for you or not. My palate seems to have come to the decision it appreciates the taste more than it necessarily enjoys it.

      With all the hype about this movie I finally bought it and then watched it last night. What a huge let down! The technical aspects were fine but the story was pure science fiction. I can understand the skills necessary to survive in the wilderness but this movie went way too far. How many times does he get (Di Caprio) soaking wet in freezing temperatures, doesn't die from hypoyhermia and still finds usable black powder some place in his pockets and starts a fire in the middle of a icy river bank! And what happened to his broken and distorted foot clearly visible when he's left for dead in the shallow grave? It miraculously healed because, as the movie goes on, Di Caprio walks better and better to the point of looking well healed and normal by the end and his final fight. The scene of him removing the guts of a dead horse to get shelter was more fake phony than a 3 dollar bill. He would have frozen to death, how his cloths dried up by morning time was a pure miracle and the removed guts were nothing like they would be in real life, please, give me a break! I am sorry I spent the money to buy it, not worth it. This is a movie that I watch one time and then I put away in the box of one timers, never to be a classic, certainly not "The Godfather". Maybe I am not deep enough to see the art in this movie but I like to be entertained and this fell way short. 2 stars because the scenery was beautiful and the sound well mixed in surround.

      Wow, what a unique experience it was to see The Revenant. First, the world in which it was set was absolutely immersive. It's one thing to film your movie in beautiful and open spaces, but it's quite another to do it well and get the camera angles right. The Revenant does both almost perfectly. I found myself thinking that the scenery alone was worth the price of my ticket. Second, I wouldn't consider myself a Dicaprio fan per se, but my goodness he really impressed me here. At times the intensity of his very expressions told us more than mere words ever could. The Revenant, meaning a person who has returned, tells the story of exactly that. A man is brought to the brink of death, fueled not so much by the will to survive as much as the need for revenge. Hugh Glass is an almost ethereal and other worldly character traveling the mystic world of the early 20th century west. Here we have a character study that somehow brings that genre even into its action scenes. I checked the historical record and was surprised that a good amount of the movie stayed true to it. Sure, some aspects were changed but it made for a more satisfying ending. On a lighter note, the man in the picture fell asleep after the first fifteen minutes, sleeping and snoring until the credits rolled. So, clearly the movie will not keep everyone's interest. Don't see this movie if you are looking for something that is fast paced. Do see this if you desire a top tier epic period drama.

      Yes, this is the movie where Leonardo Dicaprio wins his first (and long overdue) Oscar. Is this movie that good? Yes. Yes it is. The Revenant is a huge movie. And not in a Marvel Universe, blockbuster-superhero-movie way. Every minute of its 157 minute runtime is a visceral, draining portrayal of the dangerous world of the old American frontier. The journey it takes you on can sometimes feels just as soul-crushing as that of the characters' themselves. Alejandro G. Iñárritu is quickly becoming one of my new favorite directors. Prior to this I saw his movie "Birdman." Largely because it starred Michael Keaton (whom I haven't seen in a new movie in ages), but the movie was great for all of that and more. The Revenant stands in stark contrast, as a world of external rather than internal conflict. We feel Dicaprio's pain as we're dragged through the mud and unrelenting forces of nature with him, hoping to find the resolution he himself seeks. The acting is phenomenal. The cinematography is incredible. If you're a fan of slow-burn stories that build to the ultimate climax, see this movie.
