I bought this film safe in the knowledge that it had to be something groundbreaking and after pocketing six academy awards with resistance from the likes of Avatar, I was surely onto a winner…..Right? Wrong.

Best Director is the only truly deserved Oscar awarded because she has somehow managed to construct a two hour long film out of three decent scenes. Not since the French fle... read more

''The rush of battle is often a potent and lethal addiction, for war is a drug.''

Iraq. Forced to play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse in the chaos of war, an elite Army bomb squad unit must come together in a city where everyone is a potential enemy and every object could be a deadly bomb.

William James takes over as the leader of the Us Bomb squad with only a certain number of days in their tour. He is taking over after Staff Sergeant Matt Thompson has killed during the diffusing of a bomb. Will doesn't follow the rules, he lives by his own and that puts those around him in danger.

Description: The Hurt Locker, winner of the 2008 Venice Film Festival SIGNIS Grand Prize, is a riveting and suspenseful portrait of the elite members of the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) squad, soldiers who volunteer to challenge the odds and save lives in one of the world’s most dangerous jobs. Three EOD members battle insurgents and each other as they seek out and disarm deadly bombs in a thrilling race against time. A heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat look at the effects of combat and danger on the human psyche, The Hurt Locker, meaning a place of ultimate pain, is based on the first-hand observations of journalist and screenwriter ...

If There Had Been 5 (9 movies items)

" 2009 presents us with the five most obvious nominees in the 5+ nominee field, and maybe even ever. Avatar, The Hurt Locker, Inglourious Basterds, Precious, and Up in the Air were nominated for the top prize at basically every other award show. I genuinely can't imagine any of the other nominees knocking one of these five out. If one of them were to miss out it likely would've been Basterds, the least baity of the bunch (probably usurped by Up), but that still likely wouldn't have happened. Li"

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: December (11 movies items)

"December 1 "There's enough bang in there to send us all to Jesus. I'm gonna die, I wanna die comfortable." I decided to start the month off with this movie which in hindsight probably wasn't the best way to start it off since I was kind of skeptical about it. Turns out I could've picked something better because it's not as great as everyone else says. That's not to say I didn't like it because it had its moments, but I fail to see what's so great about it. The dialogue is well-written and th"

ALL-TIME 100 Revisited (20 movies items)

"U.S. soldiers in Iraq, especially before the 2007 surge, knew what to expect: 130° heat and streets full of men, women and kids, any one of whom could detonate an improvised explosive device and blow a street and all its people, American and Iraqi, to bits. In this hell storm, what’s left for an ordinary soldier to do? His job. Action-movie maven Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal did theirs too — so well that The Hurt Locker, a scary, thrilling patrol of those Baghdad streets by me"

Movies I Have Made... (6 movies items)

"What's It About? Two soldiers in Iraq attempt to escape after enemy contact resulted in casualties to their squad. One of the soldiers steps on an IED, but he cannot step off the explosive without detonating it. Production Notes & Trivia - This is not, I repeat not my idea. My friend Hayden, who was in Nightfall and B&B, came up with the idea while working on Hacksaw Ridge and came to me for help in writing and producing. I will not be directing it, but I will have a significant hand in the pro"

"19/7 In one way a basic war zone-film that focuses on portraying what kind of effect the war has on soldiers, and resorts on obvious "symbolism", Jeremy Renner sleeps with his bomb-helmet on because of how in he is with the war, or goes for some cheap dramatic pushes, like when a kid who Jeremy Renner befriended is found brutally murdered - or it wasn't the same kid and in that way it tried to portray how the war has taken its toll on Renner, which would still be cheap. The stripped down struct"
