Hurt Locker

The Hurt Locker is about a team of American Explosive Ordinance Disposal experts working to make the streets of Baghdad safe for both their compatriots and local civilians by disarming and disposing of bombs. It's a standout film in a bevvy of poorly-received hit-and-miss war movies in recent years.

Much like Slumdog Millionaire did last year, The Hurt Locker sweeping all of the awards leading up to the Oscars. It's nominated for 9 awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, even Best Actor for Jeremy Renner (Jeremy who now?) Looks like not even box-office slayer Avatar can beat it. The David and Goliath story here is how director Kathryn Bigelow keeps stealing trophies from former husband James Cameron, even though he seems to be getting all the press for his tech-pioneering 3-D effort.
