I see as many films as possible to share my thoughts everyone. We all love movies, but sometimes we would like to know a few opinions first.

Fresh off of "Birdman," director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu directs "The Revenant." This is a haunting tale one one man's survival through the snowy woods, after being mauled by a bear. On an expedition with his crew, they believe he has been killed and they leave him for dead. Leonard DiCaprio plays Hugh Glass and is brilliant as always (almost too brilliant in fact). While there is much more reasoning for Hugh Glass' return trip (which I will not spoil), this gripping story will have you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. I have basically summed up the basics of the story, because at it's core, it really is a simple story. The filmmaking aspect is what sends it above and beyond. I do not know if it is possible to find a film in 2015 with more impressive Cinematography, so if you have please let me know. "The Revenant" boasts incredible acting, a terrific score, and tremendous cinematography. Alone, it is worth watching to see it's beauty. I will say that it's 160 minute running time is a little intimidating, but it really does not feel that long once you become invested. "The Revenant" is one of the best, yet simplest films of 2015.
