No Revenant thread? I saw it yesterday, thought it was good. Some dumb firearms related stuff but whatever, you have to expect that. Also could not understand 1/2 of what Fitzgerald said but that could be due to shitty audio in my theater. What'd you guys think?

Saw it today, I both liked it and kind of thought it was boring. Was a little slow and too long, but made up for great visuals and visceral action.

I had heard it was very slow and sort of a let down. Glad to here you two at least enjoyed it.

I may take a look after all so.

"heard it was very slow"


so... ya... went and saw it, was slow, but why is that suddenly a bad thing? it was a fucking great movie what were people expecting? fucking die hard? this movie ie exactly what i was expecting and it scratched that itch that i have been not able to get for years.

When people say 'very slow' I tend to think they mean the pacing isn't ideal for the story and information presented.

If the pacing is fine it seems people will give the caveat that 'it was slow but in a good way' or whatever.


Would this itch be anything like the one 'Seraphim Falls' scratches? If so that is very good.

"Seraphim Falls"
>Muh nigga


and yeah I would say it's a lot like it

>>33714
I don't think it's always a bad thing, but I was sitting there hoping the story would progress a little faster, but then again can't think of any scenes really that could be taken out, as they all kind of serve a purpose.

  I saw it and loved every minute of it. Leo was fucking AMAZING in this! He did a hell of a job playing Glass and he defiantly deserves an oscar for it. Tom Hardy was also great as always as the asshole that buried him alive.

Pretty much this. Was it slow? Yeah, but it was supposed to be slow. It's a slow burning western like the Proposition, or Bone Tomahawk.

It's more about the characters and how they act in such a harsh and unforgiving landscape. Telling a story like that takes time to tell and you can't do that with a rip-roaring adventure movie. One of the big themes of the movie is how people fuck each other over just for survival the Indians attack the hunters and steal their shit so they can get the guns and horses needed to rescue the Chief's daughter, Tom Hardy kills Glass's son and leaves Glass for dead because he's afraid of the indians, The French trappers start killing the Indians and kidnap the Indian Chief's daughter because they're tired of dealing with them and they fear the Americans reprisal over accepting their stolen pelts, etc.

It was veeeery slow, the pace of American films is much faster regardless of topic. Comedy, romance, action, all are about a hundred times faster.

This movie basically tells a story as it happens, it reads like something someone jotted down from bar stories. It's not for everyone, but I liked it very much.

The speed of the storytelling let them frame the winter the way it really is and brought a lot of memories for when I used to hunt during cold winters as a kid. Don't think a lot of Texans or Floridians will get this movie or identify with the atmosphere.

I'd say its the best movie in the last six months, hands down.

Saw Hateful Eight last night. It was fucking fantastic.

Also the stew they were eating looked fucking delicious, especially out of big wooden bowls with a big wooden spoon.

i had some concerns as to what the meat in that stew was,

Girlfriend said the same thing. But it wasnt, just normal stew.
>> No. 33728 ID: adbbc9

So what was the deal with his pistol? Did he have two, or was it a double barrel, like a Howdah? Both times he is escaping, it seems like he fires it twice. Shoots once from behind the horse, and in the next few seconds shoots a guy from horseback. Same thing later on.
>> No. 33746 ID: adbbc9
>>33745
i think he had two
>> No. 33748 ID: 41e9cc

I think he had two.

He got one from the French guy and one from the saddle he stole.
>> No. 33749 ID: 5bb21e
*spoilers*

what was the deal with the frenchmen?

Did they kidnap the daughter before the Ree came to buy horses?
I'm a little confused because the chief was looking for Powoqqa before they sold the pelts to Touissant and then later, Touissant was using her as a fuck slave. They had her the whole time and the Ree didn't notice her in the french camp?
>> No. 33753 ID: adbbc9

Just a convenient plot device. Overlook the plotholes.
>> No. 33757 ID: adbbc9
>>33756
how was that a plot hole? the french had the girl the whole time, its why he suddenly sold the horses when the guy talked about his missing daughter,

>Did they kidnap the daughter before the Ree came to buy horses?

Yes that's why the chief needed the horses, because he was looking for her.

>They had her the whole time and the Ree didn't notice her in the french camp?

Yeah she was hidden.

It's irony I guess, the chief bought horses from the people who took his daughter, in order to faster find his daughter.

I saw it yesterday morning before I went to work.

Great movie, beautiful cinematography and cast. A few little editing boo boos, like Leo getting two shots off without reloading with a single shot Kentucky flintlock pistol.

Other than that, it was a pretty engaging movie and I loved it.

Though, that bear scene made me want to yell at the scene "you're making it worse! So much worse!" It was like a rape scene.

He had two guns during that scene but due to the editing it looked like he fired two shots.

That was the only editing mistake I caught, the rest of the movie was flawless.
