Yes!!! The Hurt Locker won!!! I was rooting for it right from the start.

Sorry, my man Jim but Avatar is a dime-a-dozen story. You should leave the eco-films to much more proficient storytelling masters like Hayao Miyazaki. I mean, I'd rather watch Princess Mononoke a hundred times than watch Avatar a second time.

Don't get me wrong. I did like Avatar when I watched it. It is a highly enjoyable film with a collective wow factor that really leaves you, well, WOWed. But, after the excitement and all the brain spasms I got while watching the movie -- after my eyes had some time to rest, I did a little thinking (yes, just a little) and I realized that the story does not hold a lot of water.

As far as the forbidden, interracial romance was concerned, Pocahontas did a better job. As far as the man sticking it out in a wild, wild world, Tarzan did a better job. As far as the environmental message it's trying to get across, Studio Ghibli has a bunch of anime that all did a better job.

So yeah, The Hurt Locker FTW!

Also, if you haven't seen The Hurt Locker yet, I recommend you do. It's a war movie, very relevant, not quite epic but what it lacks in grandeur, it makes up for its grit.
