I was not forced to see that one Bum, but I did see the last Nicholas Sparks one. That movie was as predictable as my morning shit. Apparently all the ladies were oblivious, not a woman in that theatre with dry eyes when the lights came on.

While it is a sad story, it's one that needs to be told on the big screen. Also good publicity for D1 wrestling. Looks like they did good with the story too and honoring to the Schultz brothers. Sad story all around.

Update. I've viewed several flicks lately. Some new. Some old.

The Shallows: no bueno. Unrealistic.

Nerve: so-so. Sort of teeny-bopperish.

The Purge 1,2 & 3: Ok. Some poor acting, butI like the premise.

Tarzan: Little slow. Ok movie.

Suicide Squad: I liked this movie. Action-packed. Something different.

Jarhead: Old movie. Little bit slow. Not as much blowing up and shooting as I expected.

10 Cloverfield Lane: Something unique. I liked this.

Prison Break -- Terrible acting.

127 Hours -- Good flick. Made me think of many of us who venture into the nowheres alone. Shit happens quickly.

Don't Breathe -- Loved it.

Yes, very smooth power of speech. 

You always pick up on some new minutia when you re-watch or reread something.  This go-around with Ken Burns was no exception.

I never realized, or thought about, the two sides calling on the same deity for assistance, and trusting that deity was on their side.   It just seems odd to me.

Yeah, The Revenant was a cool movie. Wore me out watching it. It was very loosely based on facts, but the scenery, bear attack, time-period costumes, etc. were all amazing.
I read somewhere that Jim Bridger's descendants weren't happy about the way he was portrayed, but that part of the story was accurate. The young Bridger did leave Glass to die.

I really liked the Revenant, too. I have always been fascinated with the Hugh Glass story. When I found out they were making a movie about it, I was stoked. Then I found out that DiCaprio was playing Hugh Glass and I was pissed, because I hate DiCaprio. I will have to admit that he did a good job, though. I was pleasantly surprised.

As for historical accuracy, the original ordeal that Glass went through was probably even worse than the movie made it out. He had a badly broken leg at first, too. He did not have a son with him in real life. And he did not kill Fitzgerald, because he had enlisted in the Army by the time Glass caught up with him and his commanding officer threatened to hang Glass if he went after him.

I didn't like the Revenant - it took a lot of liberties with what has been passed on in tales and written record.

There are a lot of good Hugh Glass written stories - some wind themselves into novels,  others claim to stick to the record.  Some I've read and still have on my bookshelf are:

Give Your Heart To The Hawks- A Tribute to the Mountain Men - Winfred Blevins - Brilliantine Books
This Reckless Breed of Men - Robert Glass Cleland - Knopf / Borzoi Books
Tales of The Mountain Men - Edited by Lamar Underwood - Lyons Press
The lives of Mountain Men  - Bill Harris  - Lyons Press
The Mountain Men - George Lycock - Lyons Press

Probably the best movie that uses the Hugh Glass story as an anchor is Man in the Wilderness (1971)

It is sad.  You have been warned.

I enjoyed though. Really was rooting for him to fuck his ex again.  She got hotter at the end of it.

Edit: not as sad as "The Fault in Our Stars," if you need a metric.

Marriage has really did a number on you eh?

I recently watched Manchester by the Sea and if you have kids, have brothers, have ever been married, have friends or have a pulse I'd say it will hit you hard in the gut.

Watched it. It was ok.

At first I was kind of thought it was sad just to be sad but all the story lines seem to come together in the end.  I thought it was pretty good but will def remember it for being sad rather than great.  Doubt I'll ever watch it again.

Probably the best movie that uses the Hugh Glass story as an anchor is Man in the Wilderness (1971)

Although I am a huge fan of Richard Harris (see youtube below for laugh), and I enjoyed The Man in the Wilderness, I don't agree with Al.


In the Revenant there was attention to detail, realism and absolute beauty.  Plus the guns were right – a couple of freaky loading or not loading/firing scenes, but the guns were correct for the period.  Add this type of period accuracy to the use of natural light makes The Revenant an amazing feeling movie  -- immersing the viewer in imaginary sensations.  This atmosphere may only be available on the big screen.  I've seen the movie multiple times at home and it remains entertaining, but it ain't even close to the multiple times I saw it at the theater.

He likes Seinfeld, Longmire, and Justified.  Got a pass from me.  But then again, I probably watch the least amount of movies on this board.  Wife bought me Revenant for Christmas, a movie I actually want to see, and it is still in the plastic wrap on the movie shelve.  I haven't watched a movie that wasn't kid related with daughter yet this year.  Ain't nobody got time for that.

Now if you all want to talk about Disney Movies, I got you covered on that!

I agree-it drives me nuts to see historical movies where everything in it is historically incorrect. And yep, the Revenant was definitely a big-screen movie.

I just watched the film Mission Control based upon Go, Flight!: The Unsung Heroes of Mission Control, 1965-1992 (Outward Odyssey: A People's History of Spaceflight) (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0803269374/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0803269374&linkCode=as2&tag=bluridflyfiss-20&linkId=d52d91801a618d5934a34a69cd93779c)

They were only taking cash for the book at the screenings so I had to pass on the signed copy.

Movie is available to screen on Amazon too.

Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06X9LDWKP/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B06X9LDWKP&linkCode=as2&tag=bluridflyfiss-20&linkId=23cd3e3231e691c8e5cd84394c4db0ff)

https://youtu.be/59MeAdGLRmU

The movie was as captivating as Apollo 13...
I really enjoyed it. The author is from Yadkinville and there was a story about him in the WS Journal

I totally agree with you. The end is kind of depressing and there are some gaps, but it is well done.

Unrelated... If you are a military history buff, go see Dunkirk. It is very good. I really hate military themed flicks that are overloaded with special effects that lack realism and take liberties with History. I'd say this rates right up there with The Great Raid.

Go see Dunkirk.

We were probably the youngest couple in the theater yesterday afternoon.

The wife wanted more character development.  She wanted more American Hollywood-style war movie.  I thought it was done well. 

I read an article about how the movie is full of defeat.

It is not.

It displays some of the harsh realities of war and the human condition - good and evil. 

I have never been to war.  I have never served in the armed forces.  I am grateful to all of my family and friends over the years who have.  I have a great respect for the warrior spirit in the men whom I know and the women who have supportrd, and many of them lost, those men.

Dunkirk portrays soldiers. 

Dunkirk portrays non-American soldiers at war -getting beaten yet not giving up.  The fact that it is about British and French warfare in WWII is unique to the modern era and much needed.

It is full of grit, determination, will to survive - if only to fight another day;  it is full of the desire to see home, to see victory. 

It is full of hope.

Yep. This is accurate. After you serve you tend to shoot holes in Hollywood war films. You find inaccuracies in everything from weapons to uniforms and equipment. They overdo the special effects to raise the drama. Not the case here. Damn accurate film and well done. Like I said in an earlier comment, it's probably the best one since The Great Raid. That remains my favorite, but Dunkirk is awesome.

Apparently this guy appreciated the movie. He is a survivor of Dunkirk.

Quote"It didn't have a lot of dialogue. It didn't need any of the dialogue because it told the story visually and it was so real."

The movie Dunkirk tells the terrifying story of the evacuation of allied troops from the French city of Dunkirk.  It's thrilling entertainment for most viewers, but for just a handful of people in the world, it contains images that bring back memories of surviving Dunkirk.

"I was in those little boats picking them out of the water," Sturdy said.

He was a 20-year-old signal man with the Royal Navy helping evacuated soldiers reach waiting boats from the chaos on the beach.

"I had the privilege of seeing that film tonight and I am saddened by it because of what happened on that beach," Sturdy said.

We went and saw The Current Wars last night and although I thought it would be a nerdy or geeky movie it turned out to be quite entertaining as Edison, Westinghouse, and Tesla battle to bring their conflicting ideas on how the county should be electrified. Although a bit disjointed because it covers so much discovery and invention in such a short movie, the main characters strong personalities make a dramatic tension that culminates with the winning bid to electrify the Chicago Worlds Fair.

The movie has several dramatic flashback scenes one of which involves Westinghouse's encounter with a Confederate soldier, reminding us how little time has past since the end of that bloody conflict!

I give it 4 lightbulbs!
