The Hurt Locker

The Hurt Locker – a film that I did not see with my Dad!  Did not see with Dad because it’s neither science fiction nor appropriately silly, nor, in fact, to be perfectly honest, my cup of tea.  What it is is an utterly captivating, terrifying, gut-wrenching, violent, blood-soaked, testosterone-fuelled war movie that I only recommend to those who have a teddy bear and a cup of hot chocolate to go home to after.  But I do recommend it.  9/11 was a monumentally brutal act of murder that has inspired monumental brutal acts of retaliation that have inspired more murder and more murder and more murder and frankly, you’d kinda think that world political leaders hadn’t cottoned onto the great message of history in this regard.  As a society we probably don’t want to be reminded just what a dodgy start has been made to the beginning of the 21st century, but just in case, it’s nice to see that the film industry has noticed along with the rest of us.
