the hurt locker 2009It’s been a pretty slow and steady rollout for Kathryn Bigelow’s intense Iraq War drama “The Hurt Locker.” A tight thriller with a huge amount of character development wrapped up in a deceptively simple story, it follows a group of bomb diffusers in Baghdad.

With all the critical acclaim its been getting (more even than the misguided praise for the new “Harry Potter” flick!), “The Hurt Locker” is an early contender (especially now that the field of nominees has opened up to 10) for a Best Picture nomination. Does it live up to the hype? Find out right now. He may have finished it a little late this morning, but nevertheless, Eric’s print review is here.

    Just watched this a couple nights ago, and it is by far one of the best films ive seen in awhile, my only complaint is that I wish it would have been a little longer.
