The theme of the hour seems to be vengeance and the REKT crew dissect The Revenant and Deadpool, two movies that couldn’t be more different in their execution and style and yet both surprisingly similar in focusing on the hunt for the protagonist’s arch nemesis and the protagonist’s ability to survive ludicrous levels of trauma and abuse.

The Revenant is a gorgeously shot wilderness drama, gritty and visceral, with powerful acting by Leonardo DiCaprio and a simply stellar performance by Tom Hardy, surely to go down as one of the year’s best films.
