BTW raise your hand if you haven't been married to James Cameron

I am glad Hurt Locker beat out Avatar. I have heard real good things about it and am definitely going to be viewing Hurt Locker at the movie theater soon.

Hurt Locker was a very good movie - and "I" have not been married to James Cameron.

Well, crap, he isn't king of the world any more.

Teresa: I haven't watched either movie. I was merely bringing up the fact that Cameron's ex-wife managed to get the Oscar for a movie that cost a fraction of the cost of "Avatar". That's got to sting a bit.

LL: lol. Finally, someone who wasn't married to James Cameron
;-)

I haven't seen Hurt Locker, but I'm hearing some who say it was good and some who say it's nothing like it was in Iraq. I guess I'll know what I think when I see it for myself.

Jan: Cameron has been brought down a rung or three. Heh heh.

Jen said...

Oh
My
goodness!!!!!!

I seriously rejoiced over The Hurt Locker winning last night!

It is an EXCELLENT movie.
Excellent!
I loved seeing Cameron's face each time they won, and I love that he sat behind his gorgeous ex-wife the whole night.
Behind her.

She acknowledged our troops.
Twice.
I love this woman.

Avatar on the other hand was a heavy-handed bore of a film made for sheeple who need to be overstimulated and spoon-fed their politics. :P

Am I subtle, or what?

I will say this: The Hurt Locker wasn't so much about the war itself as much as it was about how the rush of war can be addictive.

You are too funny! I have heard nothing but good things about Hurt Locker, but have not seen it.

I was glad that Jeff Bridges won... though I haven't seen his movie either. Ha.

Loved HURT LOCKER. Haven't seen AVATAR but reviews from family and friends have been mixed. Cameron seemed very cocky all evening as if he had the win in the bag.

Brooke said...

That's it. I'm going to Vuze and looking up Hurt Locker.

And I am very proud to be able to raise my hand right now. ;)

shows how out of it I am... I thought hurt locker was that one with the door ripped off the hinges, about halfway down the science wing hall...

I will say I'm glad the Oscars didn't bow to the blue techno movie, though.

I haven't been married to James Cameron. And I'm glad. Have you seen his new wife, Suzy Amis? She looks like the Cryptkeeper now. Has he sucked her life force out of her?

I haven't seen any of the nominated films except for Up.
