And the dead shall rise The Revenant'

Film features stunning visuals, exceptional performances

Sometimes, Oscar buzz can be a bit much.

Take a movie like 'The Revenant,' for example. It seems like we've been hearing about this film's awards potential for months now. Not only is it writer/director Alejandro Inarritu's follow-up to last year's 'Birdman' last year's Best Picture winner that also snagged Inarritu a pair of trophies for Director and Original Screenplay but it stars Leonardo DiCaprio, whose desperate desire for Academy recognition has become increasingly overt.

But when you sit down to actually watch the film, none of that other stuff matters. What Inarritu and company have created in 'The Revenant' is something truly special a visually stunning, powerfully performed story of betrayal and revenge. So it turns out there's a reason that people think this movie is going to win a bunch of hardware - the reason being that it's really f---ing good.
