Re: Movies Seen in 2009
The Hurt Locker - One of the best movies of the year. And odd that the only names in it are bit roles (Guy Pearce and Ralph Fiennes). Probably be totally ignored for awards because it's a war movie that isn't preachily anti-war.
is a smash with the critics (and rightly so), and in a year with ten Academy nominations for best picture I'd put good money on it at least getting at least a nomination.
