So I just got back from The Revenant. I really, really enjoyed it. Certain scenes actually made me wince and recoil in my seat at the theatre. Every fight and display of pain had a realistic weight to it.
I got out over an hour ago and my heart is still racing.
Leo was great, Hardy was maybe a slight bit better. Who else could even really come close to beating Leo this year though?
Glass' story is epic and the telling was very well done. The bear moved way too fast to be taken seriously and was completely unrealistic, but Leo's performance was great in spite of that. The fights were tremendous. No memeing, this was the best film I saw in 2015 and I even saw The Force Awakens, Bone Tomahawk, and The Hateful Eight.
the cinematography was great, the scenes in their entirety were nothing short of brilliant, the acting is definitely the best of this year but the plot was very underwhelming.
It also bordered on self parody at times with the final scene of his wife in the snow. Only scene i'd actually describe as cringe-worthy.
8/10 my fourth favorite movie of the year.
I agree with pretty much all of this. The fights felt real, because you could tell the characters were in pain. Which is a testament to the acting.
Maybe I didn't see enough good movies recently, but this has to be the best one in the last 12 months. For me, at least.
Yeah, I can't imagine watching this at home will be nearly as powerful as sitting in the theatre. If you could look away and play with your phone you wouldn't be sucked in like in the theatre.
that bear scene was fucking perfect. the way it would leave him alone for awhile and sniff and slobber all over him before going back to tearing him up.
it was a slow movie so i'm sure people here will shit on it, but damn the highs were high
His son was a shitty addition to the story and his screen time was not enjoyable. I'm glad they killed him early on. Jim Bridger had no reason to say behind and bury Hugh Glass while at the same time giving up his share of the money. Also, Jim Bridger's actor was unenjoyable to watch as well.
Making Hugh Glass a native-american lover and taking revenge out of his hands and giving it to the Arikara was laughable. It seemed like they were making Hugh Glass to be Jesus or some shit.
Cinematography was good but they were to generous with those nature shots. At times they didn't match the brutality of what was going on with Hugh Glass.
It was good, I'd give it a 7/10.
>The bear moved way too fast to be taken seriously
A grizzly bear in a charge can move at 25-30mph. Just because they're big doesn't mean they can't move when they need to. Most animals can produce downright frightening bursts of speed when on the attack.
To add on to this there were many opportunities to give Hugh Glass a more realistic survival story. His struggle for food in the book was crucial and heart wrenching. The movie does not do a good job on keeping up with his recovery. It's too fast.
One scene specifically that the missed out on was the buffalo scene. The one where there are about 100 buffalo around and there are five wolves feasting on a kill. The book had Hugh Glass fend off the wolves with fire. This would have added a better dynamic to Hugh Glass' survival, but no. It was used as some insignificant shot to show how much the director loves nature.
I did not like this movie. Well shot, well acted, well directed but it was too boring.
Some idiot fur trader crawling around in the snow for a month doesn't make for a good story to me, but I get why others liked it. Women and men alone have been succumbing to Leo DiCaprio's wincing since his "muh alcoholic father" on Growing Pains.
The Hateful Eight was a better and more enjoyable movie with a more creative story and even better cinematography.
You do realize that it wasnt supposed to be an adaption though right? It was just inspired by the book/story. I liked the addition of the son and the changes to the buffalo scene. It added another dynamic to the film with the Indian/ frontierman relationship dynamic.
The dream sequences were excellent too. I thought it added to both the remoteness (hed had little human contact with anyone outside his dreams for a long time)and the sense of Glass' broken psyche. He was literally focused completly on surviving and it felt lime the dream sequences were his sub concious breaking through.
>The Hateful Eight was a better and more enjoyable movie with a more creative story and even better cinematography.
You didn't just compare these two movies, did you? Jesus... I can tell just by what you typed the kind of low brow human being you are.
I realized that in the first five minutes. However, there are aspects of the book they should have adapted or took inspiration from to keep the movie a bit more grounded it enjoyable.
It was boring though. I pirated it of course, and watched it at home. Some scenes were so boring I fast-forwarded through them, especially after the bear attack. criticism is not invalid because you don't like it.
When you don't even fucking watch the whole movie, your criticism is invalid. Why didn't you just shut it off?
Pirated it, watched it at home, and fast forwarded through scenes? You can't possibly imagine that your criticism is more informed that the people who sat and watched the whole thing in a theatre.
This is one of the first movies in a long time that I've been pleased with my decision to pay $9 for and watch in the theatre. I agree with you on only one point = I bet the movie would be boring at home, without paying proper attention to it.
Kek. Yeah you're opinion definitely doesnt matter.
Its not valid. Saying something is boring isnt a critisism. Saying why something is boring is but simply saying something is boring isnt. Anyway you're opinion is objectively wrong so it doesn't matter anyway.
Same here. Loved it.
It's been a long long time that a movie has such an affec ton me. For about an hour afterwards I was kind of in a daze. The movie really makes you forget that you're sitting in a theatre.
>Who else could even really come close to beating Leo this year though?
Everyone else nominated. Leo will never win a real Best Actor Oscar. He will get an Academy Honorary Award at the end of his career.
>You can't possibly imagine that your criticism is more informed that the people who sat and watched the whole thing in a theatre.
I regret to inform you that it is. I wasn't there for the entirety of my own wedding but I still get the tax break.
>Saying why something is boring is but simply saying something is boring isnt.
But how do two boring as to what orange?
>plot was very underwhelming
well, it is a survival flick
>The bear moved way too fast to be taken
bears can get up to 30 mpg you idiot
>At times they didn't match the brutality of what was going on with Hugh Glass
the juxtaposition was the whole point
i loved how the whole theatre kind of let out a gasp (and up to that point the audience had been totally silent for the whole movie) . I also would like to add that no one in the movie theatre laughed at the corny jokes in the trailer before the movie. Usually I end up in theatre were half the audience is roaring with laughter over stupid jokes in movie trailers.
that look in his eyes when he talks about killing and eating that man and how the camera just focuses on his eyes while he just stares for about 7 seconds was great.
but this moving had tree niggers
>be already half-starved, body exhausted, literally torn up and half-paralyzed
>fall off a cliff. chill out in a horse corpse for a while. totally fine
>lol duh because he also hit a tree on the way down! that helped!
Oy. Just say suspension of disbelief and move on. May as well try to logically explain the bullshit magic plotholes in harry potter.
>Leo dethrones TFA
>Momentum building toward Oscar win
Just saw it in theatres.
>the movie is pretty
>Glass being a treenigger-lover
>heavy handed commentary about white europeans being evil genocidal monsters
>feminist propaganda about how rape is bad when the native girl cuts off the french guy's balls (even though she was traded for horses in a legitimate business deal)
I enjoyed the movie but it was preachy at times and some stupid moments like how Leo is spared because he saved the girl from rape.
I don't know what to think. The movie was extremely beautiful. It was worth a watch even as a wildlife documentary with Leo as a guide.
The story had way too many details that are impossible to believe but I guess it's surrealism. Not sure I entirely got the point but I was not bored.
>Glass being a treenigger-lover
plenty of trappers and mountain men fucked and married native gals out in the wild, it was either that, or their hands, or their buddies
>heavy handed commentary
everyone is portrayed to be equally shitty, I thought. there was no cut and dry good and bad. The indians were butchering everyone they could find trying to find the princess.
>even though she was traded for horses
what are you talking about the frenchmen stole her and where ripping off her father practically robbing him blind, fueling the entire conflict in the movie, providing the natives with cause to run roughshod over everyone and funnel stolen pelts to the french, funding their cause of revenge.
Leo was spared because he happened to do the right thing in that moment.

they have honor; just like the japs
>A grizzly bear in a charge can move at 25-30mph. Just because they're big doesn't mean they can't move when they need to. Most animals can produce downright frightening bursts of speed when on the attack.
Agreed. I can't believe anyone would even THINK that the bear moved too fast/slow. The VFX team blocked that shot very carefully. Whist researching the story of Hugh Glass, I came across an incident where American Baiters threw a leopard into an arena with a Grizzly bear and they were all stunned when the bear dispatched and killed the leopard in a matter of just a few seconds. My wife has Grizzlies on her property that cut through it on the summer. She's just half an hour from a major city in Canada.
The knife/hatchet fight in the film was quite accurately portrayed. The method of fighting at the time during the Frontier days was to chop and hack and occasionally stab your opponent until one was weakened by blood loss and died. Most of the knife fights during the Mexican Revolutionary War were similar to this one but a little faster since the two characters in The Revenant were over-exhausted.
The film doesn't cover this so there's no spoiler in saying this: The real Hugh Glass was in real-life captured by that same tribe of Indians... then killed and scalped quite a while after the events in The Revenant took place. This wasn't shown in the film and the movie's ending [no spoilers here] was based on another factor that was added to make the story more engaging.
>The knife/hatchet fight
just me, or was that one of the most brutal 1v1 engagements in film? I loved it. Was so enthralled by the brutal, gritty combat in this movie, especially the opening scene. Thought all the scenes around bonfires in camps out in the wilderness where great too, like the second Frenchmen scene where they're drinking and singing, or the scenes back at Fort Kiowa.
That knife/hatchet fight was fucking amazingly well-portrayed, accurate down to the last detail. The bear moved way too fast to be seen as realistic and the facts of nature prove it, but the native tribe depictions, fights, and setting were absolutely perfect.
All the scenes with Fitzgerald were the most compelling. Tom Hardy really stole the show.
I had no lasting interest in the plight of the should-be-dead Leo ranger. Should have been shot in the head the moment they found his dying body next to the bear.
And the captain had no realism to him, if you're going to have someone go to such length caring about a person, there needs to be a scene like Glass saving the captain's family or whatever.
>The bear moved way too fast to be seen as realistic and the facts of nature prove it
The bear was actually a man in a chromakey suit (which is how Hugh Glass was dragged about in the scene without wires), And since we know a charging grizzly moves faster than an Olympic sprinter, I think it's high time people stopped perpetuating this bullshit about "the bear moving too fast". The film VERY accurately portrays the speed and repetitive attack by a bear just as it would occur in real life. If you are not prepared to accept the reality of this, then you are an ignorant person and your opinions are based on ignorance rather than factual knowledge.
Just watch the first few SECONDS of this video you dumb fuck: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1YtA0cJ_5A
I can't even imagine how people who know nothing about bears suddenly become experts in their behavior after watching a season of Yogi bear.
For real that guy's retarded.
Bears can hoof it up a tree in a couple seconds, they charge extremely quickly, and they shake shit until it's dead.
They are not unnimble creatures.
Agreed, apparently tired of making fun of superheroes Iñárritu decides to make another Serious Movie. As usual, it's a lifeless, uninspired slough, this time featuring corny-as-shit dialogue, hammy acting (didja hear that Tom Hardy can do accents? DIDJA?), an inane/offensive noble savage narrative, and a general lack of directorial purpose. Even strong cinematography doesn't make bad movies good.
>le women are property and should be traded and raped meme XD
Fucking edge-fag I don't like feminists more than the next guy, but women are still people. I view people without thought to their preferences etc.
How would you feel if you were treated like property and raped for kicks? You would bitch about it as much as anyone else. No one deserves that shit, not based on sex, race, gender or any of that shit. Live and let live. Fuck off with that "le RED PILL RIGHT GUISE?!?!" meme, go back to /pol/ or reddit or something filthy edge-fag.
>>bear beats the shit out of Leo for five more minutes even after he shoots it
>I can't be the only one who found that funny.
The block-powder musket balls are round which gives it very little penetration. The black-powder itself is "Low Explosive" which means it doesn't ignite anywhere near as quickly as the powder used in ammunition today. One thing that professional hunters will consistently tell you is that bears can take repeat shots to the head with a high-caliber rifle and still keep charging. A bear's ability to attack after sustaining incredible damage from powerful weapons is why many hunters and even explorers up North carry very large caliber handguns like the .500 S&W or the .454 Casull. They can be fired with either hand and a failure in the ammunition in a revolver means you only need to squeeze the trigger again to get another round in place.
Many hunters have shot charging bears with high powered rifles, only to have the bears maul them to death after sustaining a number of well placed shots. But even the British hunters that explored Africa in the days of the British Empire during the late 1800s and early 1900s learned to carry a revolver for closeup defense with lions, leopards and bears.
What sounds more appealing as someone working on a movie - a potential shitstorm from SJWs because of one inconsequential rape scene being accurate or a potential shitstorm from whomever would really give a shit that an inconsequential rape scene was inaccurate? Everyone knows SJWs would freak out over something that small. Sure, she could have been freed without the chopping off of any balls, but the movie was a revenge movie - they're going for shock - a native woman getting raped by a french settled/pelter and continuing to be freed by some other dude and chopping the french guy's balls off sounds better than a native woman getting rape, start to finish and then stealthily freed with no pay off of revenge for her.
When shooting visual effects where a character is to be replaced with a digital character (in this case, a bear), we tend to shoot an actor wearing either a red, blue or green one-piece costume which is then digitally extracted and the digital character replaces him. This also enables for interaction with other characters on set as well as allowing for weight transference, shadow placement and the movement on soil and plants.
The real Hugh Glass wrote that his "brains were exposed" by the bear attack. I'm thinking that what he meant to say was that his skull was exposed. Anyone else think that's the likely explanation because I can't imagine him surviving with exposed brain-tissue.
Something else the real character said he did was he used his knowledge of insects and pulled open a rotten tree stump filled with maggots - But since he couldn't reach the wounds on his back, he sat with his back to the tree stump until the maggots climbed aboard and ate away the decaying flesh.
The director of The Revenant said there were flies everywhere but they couldn't find any maggots during filming. The Revenant was filmed in Chronological order so they never bothered to film the maggots later and edit it back in. Leo agreed that it wasn't necessary to the story so they left that part out.
The decision to film every shot in Chronological order meant adding an additional $7M to the cost of production.
The only shot that gave weight to how wounded Glass was was when he tried drinking water and it seeped through the open wound in his neck. I was expecting to see how fucked his back was and the rest of his body. They spent a bit too much time on him grunting and crawling and not enough on the triage Glass did on himself to stay alive. Still a 8.5/10 though, pretty incredible story. (Minus the muh son and revenge added)
They had to make some compromises. I would have loved for those parts to be in there, but with how many retards are already talking about how "slow" and "not much happens" in the movie, if they did more with Glass by himself I think our ADD audiences would fall asleep.
Why does Tom Hardy think that inaudible grunts and anxious mannerisms equate to decent acting and character building?
I like Tom Hardy or at least I should say that I did. I like him less and less in everything that I see him in because it is the same dumbfuck character now
Not those parts added, but replaced with Glass doing triage. Or maybe just less of him crawling around and more time added to the end. The movie takes off like a fucking space ship once Glass is found.
For starters they're all carrying rifles, not muskets stupid.
Since this is mid 19th century it's likely the pistols are rifled as well. Really only dueling pistols were kept smooth bore because rifled one's weren't considered sporting for the purpose of dueling.
Dredd 3D was a much more visceral film.
But when the action takes off in the Revenant you fucking felt like you were there. The Indian attack in the begging was amazing, Glass infiltrating that French camp was tense as shit, and Glass escaping the tribe was incredible. But I would have like to have seen Glass's ability to keep himself alive, rather than kinda of aimlessly crawling everywhere.
Hugh Glass's story was published in 1939 as one of the incredible Frontier Stories of "The Oregon Trail".
Attacked and mauled by a bear and then left for dead in the snow, he is later forced to seek refuge in the body of a recently dead Horse to survive an impending snowstorm after receiving hallucinatory messages from his dead wife telling him to go on.
George Lucas was obsessed with The Oregon Trail. He borrowed key elements from it when making The Empire Strikes Back:
Attacked and mauled by a Wampa and then left for dead in the snow, Luke is later forced to seek refuge in the body of a recently dead Tauntaun to survive an impending snowstorm after receiving hallucinatory messages from his dead Mentor (Ben) telling him to go on.
I think watching people getting blown apart by small arms fire invokes a large emotion. The slow motion in Dredd added to the scene rather than becoming the scene. Revenant is in no way a bad film to me, everyone was great in it. It was shot very very well, the music was fantastic, and the action scenes were something I want to see more of. I want to see more movies shot like this in this time frame. Imagine a 110 minute movie about the last stand of Custer with Revenant style cinematography.
What the fur-trapper Hugh Glass looked like prior to his gruesome death.
Imagine if the Revenant was actually just 2 hours of natives rampaging throughout the wilderness, Frenchmen up to dirty tricks, and Fitzgerald and Glass just trying to hold on to their pelts. And the entire time their hunting party is whittled down from like 100 to just the two of them, over the course of the film.
Basically if the opening shot never ended and it was just one long wild battle back to Kiowa.
My dick couldnt handle 2 hours of constant ejaculation that would happen if that's what the Revenant turned out to be. Maybe have Glass get injured, but the party is much bigger like 100 men. So you have the struggle of Glass versus the wilderness and the struggle of the trapper party versus the tribes. In the real life story Glass just forgave Fitzgerald for leaving him because he was young and made a bad decision.
One could dream, still enjoyed the movie though.
Actually the reason Fitzgerald lived was because by the time Glass found him, Fitzgerald had joined the army and killing a soldier was a death sentence. That and all he had done IRL was take his rifle, knife and other shit. He didn't have a son that was knifed by Fitzgerald, he just wanted his shit back. I think he got it too.
I asked my friend who knew the real story of Glass, that would it had been better telling the actual true story rather than the son aspect. He said for a movie the son added more. Guess the true story doesn't have the ending Hollywood wants.
""We looked at bears, but they were all so fat. These trained bears in captivity that you see on TV shows, they don't look like a wild grizzly bear from the 1800s."
According to Fisk, the scene was rehearsed with the stunt department for months before they even got on set in Squamish, British Columbia. Then on the day, he dressed the area where the attack took place with 25-foot rubber trees so when DiCaprio smashed into them, he wouldn't get injured. The actor was then strapped to harnesses attached to cables the stunt team used to yank him around. The grizzly was then added digitally in postproduction."
Yeah I don't have a problem with the standard Hollywoodizations. I followed the production for quite some time and did some research into the real life Glass, so I knew right off the bat that his son was a Hollywood fabrication. Not really bothered by that stuff.
Made for a more clear motivation for revenge beyond "muh stuff" and the climactic showdown gave it a more defined ending beyond:
>oh, your a soldier, so i cant kill you
>yeah, well here's your stuff
>*Glass is killed by Arikawa indians 10 years later*
This. I've browsed all kinds of other boards, but probably half the posts on this board consist of "reddit."
/fit/ is more accepting of manlets, and /x/ is more accepting of CIA/illuminati shills than this board is of reddit (which can be literally anything at anytime, depending on how anon feels).
The guy that played Bridger is like super british, so that may be part of it. I was pretty disappointed myself. I agree he shouldn't have given up his share, they painted him in too good of a light.
Also, his son was just put in there for hollywood bullshit. It was tragic, but pretty unnecessary. It's enough that they took all his shit and left him for dead AFTER he took on a grizzly 1v1. I'd be pissed, too.
Not sure about the native-american lover bit. I do know that it's pretty accepted he killed that lieutenant, but I'm not sure why.
>The movie does not do a good job on keeping up with his recovery. It's too fast.
Agreed. I'll give them that they did a good job at progressively having him move more freely with less pain.
All-in-all I'm glad his story was at least told, at all. I've always been pretty disheartened when I bring Ultimate-Badass-Glass up and no one knows what the fuck I'm talking about.
I was very pleased with his character. I always kinda felt like he overacted in his previous roles, but this time his delivery was spot on.
>i loved how the whole theatre kind of let out a gasp (and up to that point the audience had been totally silent for the whole movie)
I was pretty surprised by the audience reaction. I definitely heard many gasps during the bear scene, and then the fingers scene. Usually we either get total silence or 'Murrika clapping (aside from the odd obnoxious faggot).
Trolling or b8?
I've been enamored with the Glass story probably since before you were born, you fucking twat. DiCaprio's got nothing to do with it.
>takes bear on 1v1 and basically wins
>robbed and left for dead by faggoty faggots
>crawls/limps like 200 miles foraging n shit
Bad fucking ass. I'll take it over whatever hogwash Harry Potter bullshit you like any day.
I couldn't watch the whole thing.
Got to the part where they couldn't kill oscarman and fucking stopped watching.
I'm not saying it's not good, I just can't commit myself to something so fucking pretentious.
I know you'll think I'm baiting but I just don't like what I've seen.
I did suspend belief slightly, but still we have no idea how long he was passed out there from the fall (would've froze overnight, so assuming a few hours). So he was passed out, from the fall. Happy?
>The story had way too many details that are impossible to believe
That's why Glass's story is so fucking cool. They did add quite a bit, but his base story is still pretty unbelievable yet widely accepted as truth.
It definitely did a good job of portraying the exhaustion, desperation, and pain. It was like a manly cat fight where there are no rules, which is how I'd imagine it going.
If you've never seen a cat fight, they claw and scratch and pull at anything vital/vulnerable they can and give no fucks.
Anybody else surprised that the ending wasn't Glass bleeding out, propped up against a tree, staring up at the branches while that theme played again or his dead wife spoke again?
That would have been better than the ending they did put in. Fitzgerald has that line during his death "you came all this way for your revenge, but it won't bring your boy back", and then there's just no closure on him saying that to Glass.
I didn't like the ending they chose.
That guy is dumb, because although that bear WAS dying at that point, it basically didn't know it was dead yet and was just still fighting. However, muskets are fucking brutal compared to say, .9mm or .22. They create a hugefuck cavity that causes massive trauma pretty much separate from the actual wound. Look it up.
This is one of the only things I really disagreed with.
Hardy shot him from pretty far out, and at that time muskets were probably only accurate at less than 100yds. At that rate, personally I wouldn't have risked a shot anywhere beyond 50 because Fitz was desperate to get shit over with.
Anybody else rooting for Hardy the whole time? He felt like a genuine guy just trying to survive out in the wilderness, especially at the beginning. Decapro barely spoke at all during this movie, really kind of put me off. He should of died multiple times but "muh revenge story" gave him plot armor. Decapro should have live and let live and realized that everybody hates Indians for a good reason.
It's one of the few I know of that actually filmed with 3D equipment.
It's probably the best 3D I've ever seen. I feel bad for my dad, he dropped like $1,500 on a 3Dtv and this is the only movie that ever really justified it. Most movies don't even release in 3D anymore, it's fucking sad.
>Got to the part where they couldn't kill oscarman and fucking stopped watching.
wut? It's a real story, and Glass didn't die throughout the whole ordeal. What are you going on about?
I didn't understand how he killed an (enraged) bear with a couple of stabs. Even if he hit an artery, it would take a few more seconds for it to die, possibly more since it was so hyped up.
If his leg was broken by the bear, he wouldn't have been able to walk on it, period. Even though it shows him limping at first, it wouldn't have healed to the point where he could pressure on it without it re-snapping.
Nitpicking aside, it was an incredible movie, one of the best I've seen in a while.
Did he (the movie Glass, I know the real one lived) die after the last fight? I know it was ambiguous but the hallucinations of his wife along with the serious leg wound (near the femoral artery, there was clearly a lot of blood) and the fact that he's now stranded seemed to suggest that he did.
Yeah, I interpreted it as him dying. He may not have died in the real story, but the movie took liberties anyway.
The fade to black and then his breathing really made me think that way.
Anyway, I really liked the movie.
Also a good interpretation.
I personally am viewing it as death, because it makes me feel good to know he's achieving peace after all this bullshit he's gone through. He even says at the Fort "I'm not afraid to die anymore. I've done it before"
>Anybody else surprised that the ending wasn't Glass bleeding out, propped up against a tree, staring up at the branches while that theme played again or his dead wife spoke again?
In real life, after seeking revenge but deciding to let Fitzgerald go, Hugh Glass joined another trapper group seeking animal pelts and furs. He was eventually shot dead by the Indian tribe and scalped. His prized rifle was last seen in the hands of one of the Indians by another fur party.
I just got back from watching this. I thought it was OK. Good sound editing.
I'm on a diet, and the part when they are eating the buffalo guts literally made me hungry. That shit seriously looked delicious.
>Was everyone in the 18th century really hard cunts like that?
You have NO IDEA. There's over a hundred historical accounts on the following webpage that relate to the finer details of knife fighting in the Frontier.... but the article I've linked to is about a woman's description of a Frontiersman in the 1850s.
Another interesting article on hand-to-hand combat in the 1800s Americas can be found here:
The only thing that irked me was that I saw that Leo had a prop hand and I immediately knew that he was going to get a knife through it like 2 seconds before Fitzgerald stabbed it into the ice
Not even trolling
Imagine how much better the movie would have been with a real drama actor instead of Leo
I was drawn into the love story and the overall hopelessness but I ultimately felt no connection with Leo at all
I didn't even care if he got revenge or not
Imagine an actor that could actually portray sadness with their face
>Was everyone in the 18th century really hard cunts like that?
It seems these people were the dregs of society
She described the modern hillbilly eventhough there's more than 100 years between the two. They literally never evolved, which explains /pol/ really
>hear a ton of stuff about how this movie is an instant classic
>watch it with a bunch of friends
>it's a boring piece of shit
I knew /tv/ was contrarian as fuck but you think they'd actually hate on shit when they see it. You could have cut an entire hour from this movie and lost nothing. Writing was bad, acting was alright as long as nobody was talking (worked well for Leo) and everything besides the bear scene and maybe two others lacked impact. Cinematography choices were all over the place, too, like the scene where Leo breaths and fogs up the camera lens. No clue at all why you'd decide to do that in a film that's so clearly trying (key word, trying) to be immersive.
People went to the frontier to make their own place. The Eastern coastal cities were pretty filled up and if you had a job you would be working for some one else. City folk don't understand, so they try to take everyone's guns away and let men marry each other.
But you do see the correlation with today's rednecks don't you? There's absolutely none, they're exactly the same. They haven't changed
But I agree with you though, I just think the whole gun legislation thing has do with their backwards/backwoods nature creeping into the more uppity sectors of society. It's not pointless gun grabbing for the sake of rattling cages, I'm not siding with either group btw. Back then the west was a limitless frontier, the edge of civilization, now the world of these two classes are overlapping
I liked the movie a lot.
But did I enjoy watching it? Fuck no. Why? I'll tell you fucking why.
I had this fucking Indian couple seated to the right of me who wouldn't stop talking to each other, and at conversation level too. And then the husband takes out his fucking phone, which the brightness on it is on the fucking max, and plays around with it for a few minutes while the fucking movie was playing.
And as for the wife, who was seated in the next chair to me, she wouldn't stop making noises every time the tiniest bit of gore or action was on screen. I can't even fucking type out what the sounds could be. And you know what else he fucking does? He takes off his fucking button up shirt and covers it over himself like a blanket, and all he was wearing underneath was a sleeveless shirt. It's like he thought he was at fucking home.
Like, a "sssss" or something. I don't know if it's fear or disgust or whatever the fuck, but it annoyed the fuck out of me. It was happening constantly. I wanted to tell this stupid bitch to shut the fuck up but I didn't want to start any shit and ruin the movie for anyone else.
