The Revenant, a review

If Leo doesn’t get an academy award for this movie, I’m done with Hollywood. This movie brought me back to the same time that I watched Dances with Wolves, with Kevin Costner. Couple in the vicious raw video footage of….a gruesome bear attack. It’s so intense, but well shot.

It was gritty in all the right places and reminded me again of what the human body is capable of if the will is strong enough. It was also a harsh reminder of the strain relationships between the Native Americans and the white man.

Even though I am thankful for everything I have, a house I rent, the job I loathe, the car that I pay too much for….but all of it…all of it wouldn’t have been possible if the Europeans didn’t lay the framework. I can’t help but wonder if our world wouldn’t be where it is now if instead of killing the Native Americans and Bison, if the Europeans, Spaniards, and whoever else tromped onto America’s soil would have found a way to be friends.. What would have happened if we would have co-existed? Would there be millions of years left? Enough food to go around? Less crime? Less…hatred? This lingered in the back of my head, but it came and went as the movie played out on the screen.

When the credits rolled I was left with the same feeling as Inception. I didn’t know what to think. The one feeling I remember was a strong sense of depression. Depression in that the main characters plight was met with…such bitter sweetness. You’ll know what I mean if you’ve seen it.

It’s a great movie!! I grimaced, felt like crying, gawked at the ceiling, and felt sick. I love movies that take me on a wild ride and like I said at the beginning, he had better win an Oscar.

The Avengers:Ultron, Spoilers!

I was not dissapointed in this installment of the Avengers. My favorite character temains to be Captian America! I thought Black Widow was gonna hook up with the Captian not the Hulk. 

I was so glad that Eagle Eye didn’t get killed. I mean he has all those kids!! I was sad to see the speedy guy die, but glad that his sister didnt die! 

I enjoyed the snide comments ans how easily it was to break apart the tight knot group! I enjoyed the action sequences, but they looked more like a video game at the beginning. 

Overall I give it a 5/5! What about you???

Inception: A short review

If you’re looking for a good movie that makes you think, then Inception is the movie for you. It’s about a group of people that are able to infiltrate the dreams of people and manipulate them to give out their deepest and darkest secrets.

It’s a great concept.

The movie itself cast big names such as Leonardo Dicaprio, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and even Ellen Page.

I really enjoyed it, but the ending left me hanging. So I walked away feeling upset and confused.

Do you think he made it out of his dream?

Short and sweet and to the point.
