They put a complex medical device on quite a few patrons who attended screenings of "The Revenant." They showed extended periods of emotional involvement.

I wonder if they used any hunters in the test? I'd bet they stayed calm compared to non-hunters. We're pretty much used to gore and guts. Pulling the guts from the horse didn't faze me at all, but i'm sure it did for a non-hunter.

Actually, the whole movie didn't set off any emotions in me, except anger towards Fitzgerald.

"I wonder if they used any hunters in the test?"

Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, and D.C. Rolling Eyes  I'd guess that the odds are 5% were hunters at best.

I dislike machines telling me if I feel something. 
I had an old girlfriend like that. Wink

my heart never raced during that movie. Maybe at one point when I was laughing at something stupid and untrue!

The fighting with the indians was good, but thats about the only thing that got a serious reaction from me other than throwing my hands up in the air and going... WHAT?!! That never happened! What the hell is this s.......!

The part he crawled into the dead horse he just ran off a cliff had me almost on my hands and knees laughing LOL. I thought they ripped off a scene from Star Wars!

"The part he crawled into the dead horse"

I remember a story of a buffalo hunter who killed a buff, gutted it, and crawled inside to escape a sudden blizzard. They found his corpse frozen in it later. When all the body heat dissipated, it froze in that position and he couldn't escape.
I don't remember the source.

no, it was not my favorite. I would watch it once more so i could see it in good HD quality, but its no classic like jeremiah johnson or the mountain men where you could turn it on and listen and just enjoy.

It was fully of mumbo jumbo.

I have not even seen mountain men but I will look it up and watch it. Jeremiah Johnson is a good movie I have watched it many times. Im not fond of Robert Redford because of his political views but he did do a good job in the movie. I think sometimes people overlook the fact that a movie is often just entertaiment  and the real life part plays to big of role in determing the rating of the movie. Just my take. Al

Brian Keith and Charlton Heston are excellent in The Mountain Men. It's got some comical moments too.

Hey I forgot but during the indian fight, a guy comes running into camp butt naked, with an arrow in his back and falls over dead. What do they call him?  " Is that Colter!"  Yeah, Colter was dead since 1812-13 Laughing

Everyday hunters including myself who saw the Revenant probably saw some aspect of the movie that was truly Hollywood.  At least the movie exposed viewers to a time when black powder thew a projectile...unlike Star Wars where ball-less lasers are the weapon of choice. Laughing

You forgot to mention how annoying some of those Star Wars characters are.

Except for the first Star Trek movie, the rest have been entertaining. I can't say the same for Star Wars.

First Star Wars movie wax fine.  But if there was ever a box office movie theme that $milked$ the viewers into seeing episode after episode, Star Wars was the Milky Way Galaxy.

Anyway, I enjoyed the Revenant.
