A Really Good Movie

It's called The Hurt Locker and for the first time in years our fighting men and women are portrayed as braver than hell, doing a job you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy, and behaving decently in an indecent situation.  None are dope fiends, sexual deviates, or genocidal bad guys.  The movie focuses on a small force of men whose job is to locate and then explode IEDs that are buried everywhere. The continuing tension is more than any young man should have to endure, they are under constant sniper attack, and suicide bomber assault making the movie very tense for most of its length . This is a super good movie and I urge you to go and see it. Amazingly, it has been nominated for an Oscar but I bet it gets trashed by the Hollywood Pigs.  It was televised on ON DEMAND here in LA for 48 hours prior to theatrical release.  Klavin review here (he didn't like it but fuck him)
