How did a thread abt 'Hurt Locker' became one abt " Favourite war/related movie I watched"...lol
Anyway, it won accolades Not for its any hint of realism but the story telling & suspense/tension...
Is there ANY war movie that can claim to be realistic with no one/especially veterens criticizing?...lol
I esp. like that its by a lady-like lady Director...

The film has undergone a lot of criticism. http://www.newsweek.com/id/234064
Frankly I thought the main character's gung-ho cowboy attitude was quite off-putting. But it deserved to win over Avatar.
another "war" movie i enjoyed tremendously... "Inglorious Basterds"
Mythbusters - the bigger the explosion, the better it is.
There are now a lot of good war movies from Asia too.
The Assembly - China
Taegukgi - South Korea
Did you know that tHL was filmed almost entirely in Jordan, just a distance away from Iraq.
Many yrs back on free to air Channel 5 there was this war TV series entitled 'Over There' which was about a unit of the United States Army's Third Infantry Division on its first tour of duty in Iraq. However the 'Iraq sequences' were mostly filmed in the California desert. It's quite good but dun't know why it ended suddenly
Photography? It's all in your mind...
Btw The Hurt Locker is out in DVD already.
What about 'Generation Kill'?
I have this set in my amazon cart, together with Hurt Locker and District9.
Anymore good recommendations? Need to fill up the cart, shipping charges more worth it.
