The Rainy Day Movies - "The Revenant" and "Carol"

Adding Martin Scorcese to the mix 'cause y'all know what
he directed, mentioned herein

Two fantastic stars - Leo and Cate.
Two awful movies.

"The Revenant"

Honestly, one of the worst movies of my lifetime. You remember, I'm sure, the horse-head scene in "The Godfather 1." Well, "The Revenant" writers outdid that scene with an even more memorably nasty one of their own. The violence in this film exceeds that in most other movies. Leo in a beard is nearly unrecognizable, making it easy to forget he's even starring in all the misery. NOT RECOMMENDED, unless you loved Tom Hanks and Wilson and need a more violent version of solitude and salvation.


Yeah, yeah, it carries a message… one we've been hearing repeatedly for too long now. It's true, one can't change his or her grain. And yes, Cate's performance was excellent. But honestly, it was like watching grass grow. FAR BETTER than the first movie mentioned; but nonetheless about a 3 on a scale of 10. Would have been better free and on demand.
