The Hurt Locker is not Oscar-worthy

28 Feb

Unlike what seems like every other reviewer on the planet, I wasn’t blown away by The Hurt Locker. Read my review for The Hurt Locker for more details. The film has a few really great scenes, but the pace is all over the place and there are just too many awkward bits: tactical, realism-based and otherwise.

I know what you’re probably thinking: what makes me believe that my thoughts about film even matter? Well, first of all…it’s only one particular viewpoint, but more importantly, I’ve explained some of the important aspects of my history with movies and why Nick is a great critic since I have some differing opinions that I’m sure someone somewhere will appreciate.

    People are saying Hurt Locker was an upset. No. A Serious Man would have been an upset. Hurt Locker deserved Best Picture and it’s just an added bonus that it beat out the most expensive movie ever made.
