Movie 1: The Revenant (2015). My rating: 3.5/5. Stunning scenery, fantastic directing, believable and unique characters, great acting, and yet the whole thing is incredibly unpleasant. That was one of the goals, I guess! I didn't feel that it was the plot that redeemed it, but the way that the beauty and power of nature was captured.
