The Hurt Locker on DVD

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Bristol Insider, Jan 12, 2010.

  1. Released today (arrived via Amazon pre-order). Great behind-the-scenes feature and the audio commentary with Kathryn Bigelow is strong.

    This movie is intense.
  3. Saw in in the theater, where it was awesome on the big screen.

    I liked the movie a lot, but it was shot with a hand-held and the movement made me feel really sick. I couldn't focus, so it wasn't as intense an experience for me as I know it was for others. "Half Nelson" and "Rachel Getting Married" also made me sick, although the latter could have been for other reasons, too.

    I saw it weeks ago and my blood pressure just went down yesterday.

    Go get this movie if you haven't seen it. It's going to win a lot of awards.

    Kokane, I've talked to vets who said they got palpitations during Saving Private Ryan. It would be the same kind of thing here.

    When "Saving Private Ryan" came out, I was assigned to go watch it with a D-Day veteran and get his review/reaction for a story. I went with a great old guy who was one of the first to hit Omaha Beach. He lasted about one minute into the landing sequence, then excused himself to go to the lobby. I went and got him after about 20 minutes, and we finished the movie.

    You could have written just on the ashen faces of those guys as they left the theater. That alone was visceral.

    Great movie, but it's like having a heart attack for two hours straight.
