The Revenant Is an Oscar Favorite?
Just saw the movie. Maybe an old geezer doesn't have the patience for 5 minute shots with nothing much happening, but I did not like it. Yes, DiCaprio's efforts must be respected and I wouldn't have a problem with him getting best actor. And the picture making is fine, though the scenery is cold. But a movie is supposed to tell a story and there wasn't much there, certainly not enough for 2 hours 30 minutes. Maybe chop an hour out and it would play, but there's no way I see it as a best movie candidate.
