I watched "Child 44" last night, and despite a great cast (Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman), it was pretty terrible. Could have been a very interesting movie, but it was just a mess.

Great acting and stellar cinematography. I was entertained the whole way through. I'd give it like a B+.

If I had to choose a best friend to journey through life with, I'm not sure who I'd pick between Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman.

I hate going to the movies but for some reason I wanna go see that one. Thinking about hitting a matinee on Wednesday or Thursday. I'm gonna base my decision solely on whether or not you tell me I should go.

Yeah, I've had a thing for Piper Perabo (Angier's first assistant and wife) for about 15 years, too.

I wish she could've had a bigger career. She did get naked in Looper, though, and I'm thankful for that.

She got naked and had lesbian sex scenes in Lost and Delirious.

Mr. Freeman.

Going to use my AMC gift card for The Revanant today after work. Bart Scott.

Obviously the bear scene was awesome. Overall I was a little disappointed, I was expecting more from the movie.

Well if you ask me, this is definitely a movie you're going to want to see in the theater. I don't think it's a stretch to say that it's probably the most gorgeous movie that's ever been filmed. One of the few times that I've been so pulled into a movie that I could actually feel how ******* cold everyone must have been.

There is one particularly brutal scene in the movie, and despite the fact that I was in the theater with about 5 other people, everyone was visibly squirming in their seats and a couple of them were yelling "UGH! OH! Stop!" :lol: it was definitely hard to watch.

DiCaprio and Hardy were unbelievable, and Domhnall Gleeson was as good as he always is. I don't know that visually there will ever be another movie like it, but I definitely hope so, because it's a pretty great way to shoot a movie, using nothing but natural light.

I too...loved Piper Perabo and thought she was headed for stardom after Coyote Ugly. *shrugs

I heard Revenant was incredible and too much but in a good way. Hoping to check it out Thursday.

The Revanant was incredible. If Hugh Glass went through half the **** they portray in this movie. That was one bad man.

I've mentioned my unreasonable fear terror of bears on here before, yea that scene pretty well scarred me for life, the delay in between was beyond intense.

Leo was awesome. What that guy did for this role was incredible. he actually ate the raw bison liver, and his reaction to it on screen was genuine, and that Empire Strikes Back sleeping accommodation, that was apparently real as well, not to mention getting hypothermia.

Really? What more were you expecting? The cinematography was the most immersive that I have ever seen, in fact I have not seen anything shot like this before, the performances were phenomenal, the story was simple, but engaging and believable. I think it was DiCaprio's best ever.

I only go to the movies now to see those that seem worth it to see on the big screen. A movie like Creed, while it was very good, was just as good in my living room as it would have been on the big screen. A movie like this was completely worth seeing in the theatre.

Yeah I'm doing the same thing. I'm not going to go see Carol or Room in the theater, but stuff like The Revanant, Mad Max, and Star Wars? Yeah those are must watch in the theater type movies. I did go see Creed in the theater around Christmas with my dad, and that was a really cool theater experience because people were actually cheering Donnie on like we were all watching a real fight.

The cinematography was great, but I've seen that in a lot of movies that had a much better story. I was almost bored to be honest, the story line was not enough to keep me engaged.
