The race for Oscar…

SO I am excited about the Oscars next week since you all know how much I love movies it is only fitting for me to be excited about the awards. This past week I have been hearing alot about The Hurt Locker and how the race will pretty much be neck & neck with Avatar…so I wanted to see what the fuss is all about……
Something interesting is this movie was directed by James Cameron’s ex wife…can we say rivalry? Well this movie was soo different from Avatar I don’t even know how you could compare the two. The Hurt Locker is a raw, gritty and emotional portrayal of what it is really like to be serving in Iraq and more importantly what it is like to be on the bomb squad. There actually is not much of a “story line” to this movie but more like a look inside this squad who wears the crazy lead suits (below) and deactivate road side bombs. I mean everyday is a true live or die for these guys and rightfully so they are full of mixed emotions. I think this is eye-opening and you should watch it, I enjoyed this movie immensely …….but when I tried to go to sleep last night my mind could not help but worry about my brother who will be deployed later this year.

Have any of you see this movie? Thoughts?

I guess we will see next week who wins the big one….but my heart still belongs to Avatar!
