    I hope “The Hurt Locker” does well. I went into that movie (recently, no less) thinking it would at worst be another “Three Kings”, and at best be another “Jarhead”.

    It was neither.

    Well, it was more Jarhead than Three Kings – but it pretty much captivated me from start to finish, and it was refreshing to see something (“based on a true story”) that aimed to capture the contrasting nature between those who become soldiers because it’s something to do, and those who become soldiers because they live and breathe the lifestyle.

    Or something to that effect. tl;dr: dude really likes his job!

    I mean, Avatar was great, but it’s basically just Pocahontas 2010. UP deserves some love, too.
