On Late Realizations

Finally glad that this movie got its due recognition. In the one week that it ran hardly anybody ever saw it. It was only after the nominations were announced that people started scrambling for DVDs of The Hurt Locker to put some review of the movie out there in the press. So it was ridiculous that Hollywood promoted it so poorly at the time of release. Hopefully the Oscar thing would make more people appreciate a truly wonderful movie.

Though this was a bad movie, it was nowhere near as bad as Avatar, which would be a turning point in using the karuvi and neglecting the karu. They should not even call it movie. It is a computer program.

BS war porn...uses every known cliche in the book, bad acting, screen play...The list is endless. The critics like to think they have uncovered a gem from the rubble but sometimes the reason a movie makes only 20 million is because it sucks

Since the "critics" have been singing songs about this movie the academy did not want to lag behind in awarding this movie. But look at the bright side, the game show avatar was snubbed.

Hawkeye,
Padam nalla than irunthathu but still got a feel that have seen it all....watch this movie called Jarhead. Hurtlocker and this one have the same feel. Somehow i felt Jarhead never got the attention it deserved
