Movie Review - "The Hurt Locker"

OK, this was a fantastic movie.

If your looking for fantasy or science fiction, your not gonna want to see "The Hurt Locker". This is the real deal, circa 2004 Baghdad.

Kathryn Bigelow has directed a masterpiece war film that captures a glimpse into the reality of a time and place that most of us never have had to, and hopefully never will have to see in person.
This is not a glorification of events, this is simply allowing the viewer a chance to get a taste for what this particular group of people got to, and get to experiance every day.

This has been a dismal year for film thus far, don't get me wrong, I'm as much a "Harry Potter" fan as the next geek, but this was the best use of film I've seen in a while.
