All great movies but I think The Hurt Locker's win was justified. Ridiculously intense acting, excellent screenplay, editing couldn't have been better, and maybe the best action movie cinematography since Saving Private Ryan.

Not saying hands down it was the best, but its win was deserved. It really didn't have any pro-USA agenda stuff going on either.

I'm still going with the freedom boner theory. Have you seen A Serious Man btw? Kind of dry but I thought it was hysterical.

I've added it to my queue.

Was just reading a review of THL and really agree with this:

Quote:
While the audience comes to know the characters through a basic and structurally unconnected series of generally repetitive events, the three primaries are developed to the point that they become reflections of the audience, each undergoing the varying intense physical and emotional turmoil that Director Kathryn Bigelow -- and indeed the hells of war as a general rule and as expertly and horrifically reflected here -- has infused into the picture. Rather than a detached observer, the audience becomes a fourth member of the team, a participant that, despite the relative safety of the theater, comes to feel the anguish, experience the horrors, soar with the adrenaline, and understand the agony of combat and the precariousness of life in constantly evolving and potentially destructive conditions.

this movie really kinda blew me away. Through sexual intercourse, an evil entity is passed onto the victim, therefore the victim needs to pass it sexually to someone else and if/when that person dies it goes back to the prior victim. Sort of an allegory to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Very original, great cinematography (as only indie films truly accomplish), actings spot on, pretty scary too. And the final shot is absolutely insane in this subtle weird way.
4/5



This film on the other hand didn't do much for me frankly. It's overrated drivel wrapped nicely in Noah baumbach's pretentiousness. I absolutely love Frances Ha and The Squid & The Whale, but this was just so mediocre. His characters are starting to become too intellectual for my taste if you will. Sort of like Woody Allen films.
2/5

Would be in my top ten of the most overrated movies of all time. In the real world Plainview would have been murdered long before he could have wreaked even a third of the havoc he wreaked. I drink your milkshake?

Excellently made movie with a daft storyline.

Well it's my favourite film and the character interplay is what really makes it. Also, go **** yourself.

Basterds should have won that year for the opening scene and the bar scene alone. Two of the best dialogue driven scenes that end in an explosion of violence.

I'm totally okay with No Country winning. It's a perfect film. It just so happened to go up with another perfect film. I can't fault the Academy for this one. It's so damn close.

I don't get this one. TWBB is one of the tightest screenplays I've ever seen put to film. It spans years of time without having a single scene of filler. The first 20 minutes are dialogue free and still tell the story of not only how Daniel started his career in oil but also how he came to be a father...without dialogue. Daniel was too powerful to just be murdered. He also invented ways to get oil out of the ground. Your best bet was to partner with him or t least try to stay clear of his way. There is no murdering a man that powerful in that time period. Not an oil man. The movie is a materpiece.
