The Hurt Locker presents an intense and unflinching portrayal of elite soldiers who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat. When a new sergeant, James, takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict, he surprises his two subordinates, Sanborn and Eldridge, by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat. James behaves as if he's indifferent to death. As the men struggle to control their wild new leader, the city explodes into chaos, and James' true character reveals itself in a way that will change each man forever.

Winner of the BAFTA Awards for Best Film, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Editing and Best Sound.

Winner of the Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director (Kathryn Bigelow), Best Screenplay, Best Editing, Best Sound Mixing & Best Sound Editing.

say-whaaaaat??? oO
I guess some people don't like movies unless they have a 'star studded' cast, tacky sex scenes and a limitless budget with ridiculous special effects.
This movies plot was very interesting, i found it tense and thrilling, and im one of the most fussy movie-goers on earth. Watched it several times now. I don't know anyone who hates this movie!
Dont avoid, watch it. Its a bloody good movie and i am sure most will agree (unless you can only handle something as hardcore as disney).

I really enjoyed this film and have taken advantage of this offer to add another Blu-ray to the collection.

Each to their own I suppose but I wouldn't tell folks to avoid it. Watch it and make your own mind up.

I don't know how this movie beat Avatar at the oscars, winning 6 oscars is a joke, Avatar blew this movie out of the cinema, the oscars is fixed nowadays anyway.

Kathryn Bigelow - Best Director, i wondered how much she paid to win that one. James Cameron should of won by miles.

Avatar's story has been done so many times before to the point that nothing in it surprised me, only thing it had going for it was the visuals and ok acting. Hurt locker was meh for me as well, main thing I enjoyed about it was that it seemed more real without cgi effects. Both worth a watch but both over rated.

Great film and looks fantastic on blu ray. Was first blu ray I bought for £10 out of Tesco. Recommended, gripping stuff. The post-war adjustment plot line was hard hitting and shows what people can end up like after returning from these situations.

I thought this film was very good, in fact we all enjoyed it. Thought it was much better than The Green Zone which i've watched recently.

This is a great film and I don't normally like war films! that says something.

Good price but +1 from me thinking this film was overrated. It was like the critics were worried they might offend the armed forces and bomb disposal unit. I can't understand why people think it's worthy of all the praise and awards.
#18
Alright film but not the classic the Academy would have us believe. The plot was a bit cliched but worth a watch. If you like a war film that ratchets up the tension then I would recommend Lebanon.

Super find - been looking for this film to drop in price for a while.

Best picture Oscar winner? Nobody will be talking about this film in 10 years, Apart from those discussing which film is the worst to win best picture, Crash, Shakespeare in Love or this overated twoddle. The Oscars always seem to pick out a film for best picture that nobody gives a hoot about in the future.

Here are some examples of just how wrong the Oscars can be -

How Green Was My Valley (1941) won over Citizen Kane.
Marty (1955) won over Rebel Without a Cause
The Apartment (1960) won over Psycho
My Fair Lady (1964) won over Dr. Strangelove
In the Heat of the Night (1967) won over The Graduate
Oliver! (1968) won over UN-NOMINATED 2001: A Space Odyssey
The Sting (1973) won over The Exorcist
Rocky (1976) won over Taxi Driver
Annie Hall (1977) won over Star Wars!!!!!!
Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) won over Apocalypse Now
Ordinary People (1980) won overRaging Bull, and un-nominated The Empire Strikes Back and The Shining,
Dances With Wolves (1990) beat GoodFellas
Forrest Gump (1994) beat The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction
Braveheart (1995) won over Toy Story
The English Patient (1996) won over Trainspotting
Shakespeare in Love (1998) beat Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line, and an un-nominated The Big Lebowski and The Truman Show
A Beautiful Mind (2001) won over The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Chicago (2002) beat The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Slumdog Millionaire (2008) won over An un-nominated The Dark Knight

and last of all The Hurt Locker (2009) beat Avatar!

Most of the best picture winning films no one's talking about 10 years later.

Regarding your list i'd say that...

The Apartment V Psycho a close call but fair enough. The Apartment may not be as iconic but is more watchable. Anyway, Psycho wasn't even nominated.

In The Heat Of The Night V The Graduate. ITHOTN was a great film. Tough call that one. Bonnie & Clyde should have won that year anyway.

The Sting V The Exorcist...fair dos for me The Sting winning. The Exorcist got a lot of publicity mainly for it being banned.

Forest Gump V Shawshank...Shawshank flopped at the box office and then picked up on DVD/VHS. I'd call it a draw though that one but Pulp Fiction should have won anyway.

Other films worth a mention...

Million Dollar Baby won over The Aviator
Chicago won over Gangs Of New York
Gladiator won over Erin Brokovich
The Sound Of Music won over Doctor Zhivago
Midnight Cowboy won over Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid
Driving Miss Daisy won over Born On the 4th Of July

Well it's become clear by now that probably as many don't like it as do,therefore I'll spare you my o
opinion.

The real point here though is it's 6.74 which is a good deal for a Blu-ray movie.

PS : This fence isn't very comfortable to sit on :P

These are just your opinions, as are the Oscars themselves. They are not based on raw earnings, viewership or hype (Avatar, Saving Private Ryan and The Exorcist for example) but on the views of "industry experts" within the Academy. Hence, Academy Awards.

Hype. It is boring, silly and arrogant. A video nasty.
Where was the script? and the P L O T? You learn nothing about the three main characters. I have no idea why the sergeant behaves like he does. Running around the city alone?
The first bomb disarm scene was great but after watching it's like watching someone else play a video game. A dull one. Same with the sniper scene.
And what gives with the Iraqi boy?
And don't tell me I'm too shallow to understand it because it was never there.
Finally, Disney my ****.
