I don't think I would like The Revenant either.  
I knew all about it because as a substitute teacher I had to watch a documentary about it long before it was a movie with de caprio.
This might have been the docu. 



 There are so many idiots who like to glorify this lifestyle.  During hunting season some of the high school teachers dress up like "mountain men" and I've never seen anything so clownish in my life.  Real Mountain Men didn't dress like these teachers - in their polished leather finery and too many fringes hanging off everything.  
In real life the mountain men were dirty, smelly, hard-working people who only lasted one generation.  They often became guides for the westward migration.  Many could speak the language of several tribes of Indians.

I have just started watching Breaking Bad. What a strange experience it is. It is funny and cruel at the same time. If I decided to become a criminal, all the stuff that happens to the lead character would happen to me too.

BREAKING BAD!!!!!!

I wish I could be there with you, Martine! I LOVE BB! LOVE LOVE (well, you get the drift)

Where are you? What's happened? Tell, tell! We've seen it twice and Allan doesn't want to watch it again for at least a year (or two).

Ali's a huge fan, too. I got my brother and friends hooked.

Allan wanted to name Toby Walter, but NO. I would have named him Jessie, but my mom's dog that we cared for was named Jessie. I don't know where you are, but you will understand my thinking. Though Walter would have been cute, I didn't want to name my puppy after WW.

Ooh, this has made my day. So exciting! I promise not to give anything away, just want to know details and your thoughts. Will try not to be too much of a pest. [biggrin]

There were times we laughed so hard it hurt. But other times, not funny.

We are at end of Season 5 of Game of Thrones. I like it a lot, but not quite as much as BB. Though I do love Peter Dinklage (he's the only comic relief there). There are other characters I like (so many characters) and it's a great show. The sets are amazing, too.

Some actress recently said she'd worked with Jeff on a recent film and called him such a nice guy, so nice it was out of this world nice...can't remember who said that, but I know she was spot on !

I must be approaching the end of season one by now. Perhaps I have already reached season two. Walt Sr. went missing and was found walking around naked in a supermarket. He then has to recover in hospital while Jesse gets questioned by Hank. I have seen them steal the whole barrel of methylamine to be able to produce more! I have seen how Hank shoots Tuco and how the police seem to close in on Jesse.



The lies, the absurdities,... it is hilarious sometimes. There is a lot violence as well, of course. It is amazing how Walt manages to keep his wife in the dark about his double life. If you start watching, you just want to go on. So I watch a couple of episodes and then force myself to go to bed.
