PF, have you read the book? I bet I'd like it a lot as my favorite reading is Historical Drama based on fact. I really hope you see this movie in a theater as the sound and cinematography are stunning!

I've ordered the book, awaiting it's arrival.

Awesome film, The Revenant.

DH found it somewhat boring, which I don't quite understand. I'd seen the original first four, but missed all the more recent prequels.

The Revenant is next on the list.
Star Wars doesn't appeal to me. I saw the first one but that was enough for me. I had to laugh Dawg about the 20 people in the theater with you. There were about 40 people besides us to see The Revenant, and our little theater was packed but it was Sunday. On a week day I'm often there alone or with just a handful of people.

We have a fabulous multiplex theater in our little town, Kay. The chairs are so comfortable. It's newish, and we've only been there 3 times, and each time there's only been a handful of people at the movie we're watching. Of course, we skip opening nights for new releases, sure hope they're busier then. My only complaint is that the Dolby sound system is so loud!

Planning a matinee for The Revenant!

What's the last movie you watched?

I saw the first part of the last Huger Games, whatever it's called. I don't know how many of you are familiar with a propaganda machine. I am intimately familiar with Red propaganda. And I know if I see one. The whole series is Red Propaganda. This one is the worst. Worst propaganda it is. This is probably the first American movie that is so vehemently is anti government, anti capitalism, anti establishment.

P.S. Disgusting.

Yep, Dawg....that's a gripe of mine, too. It doesn't HAVE to be sooo loud! Takes a good while to get used to it, especially in an action/adventure film.

That is just the first movie laying the groundwork for the rest of the movies and the books.

+1. The people resist. The series is not promoting Soviet-style propaganda, just illustrating it.

Like I said. I am intimately familiar with how propaganda works.
