    Got round to watching this the other night and was quite looking forward to it.

    What a disappointment. Hours and hours of grunting actors trudging through snow and icy rivers.

    I nodded off after 3 hours and Mrs T woke me up a bit later. They were still trudging through the snow grunting away.

    Tommys rating - shite, watch Jeremiah Johnson instead.

    I thought it was a great movie. The directors decision to use only natural light was a bit risky, considering. But it made the imagery more beautiful than it may have been otherwise. He also represented the tale of Hugh Glass pretty accurately except for that business of his son.

    I've been unimpressed with Decaprio in general but he did an outstanding job in The Revenant. And Hardy is always excellent and adds to whatever film he's in, imo.

    Perhaps you would be more comfortable with Dora the Explorer, Tommy.
