    Why is The Hurt Locker nominated for best picture

    Although it premiered early last year I just decided to watch it due to it's  Oscar nominations. I found it to be boring, plot-less armature film making that attempted to explain how the average soldier's brain "ticks". I think the appeal must be in the disenfranchisement of cultural norms between American life and worn torn countries. All Humans have emotions and coping mechanisms. This attempt at revealing those mechanisms fall short. What is your opinion

    Could not agree less. I thought it was a very good movie

    The reason why it got so much acclaim is because of 2 reasons the 1st being James Cameron - Who has a bunch of pull in Hollywoods Ex wife directed the film and he supported it and even hyped it to the point of saying it was gonna win best picture before the nominations we're even cast and secondly because the USA is in the longest war in history, but I agree with you I didn't like it, they might as well gave it to Crazy Heart or Avatar to me LOL
    Hollywood just isn't putting out the quality of films in the past.
    Thanks for the question
