Imagine if the war the man was in was a character, not a setting. For example, in Black Hawk Down, technicals were shoot-on-sight, so the opening scene was inaccurate. The Blu-ray: Vital Disc Stats The disc auto-plays when you put it in your machine, and is followed by a bunch of previews for mediocre Summit movies. But protecting the public isn't easy when there's no room for error, and every second spent dismantling a bomb is another second spent flirting with death. I don't want to be back in that mindset again. Anything can, and does, happen. Jeremy Renner gave one of the best performances of his career.
It was the second highest-rated film of 2009, behind Pixar's Up. Otherwise, there isn't a whole lot to say about this transfer. The sound field is almost active the entire time. What this transfer does, brilliantly, is maintain a striking amount of detail and clarity in an image that could easily have been washed away. Or, Fox News was correct in saying that the left coast had to give it to Hurt Locker to prove it wasn't out of touch with America or something. Military films are no different.
Updated daily and in real-time, we track all high-def disc news and release dates, and review the latest disc titles. Based on the personal wartime experiences of journalist Mark Boal who adapted his experiences with a bomb squad into a fact-based, yet fictional story , director Kathryn Bigelow's Iraq War-set action thriller The Hurt Locker presents the conflict in the Middle East from the perspective of those who witnessed the fighting firsthand -- the soldiers. That gripping scene between two men that hated each other having the emotional breakdown together and opening up like brothers how one wants to go home and have kids. They wanted a big, dramatic shot with the crashes, and holy crap they delivered! But as the unit faces tougher challenges with each new bomb, the men start to fight James's bullish methods. A very talented painter, Kathryn spent two years at the San Francisco Art Institute. It was weird but it's a very good movie in my eyes.
James Cameron and Catherine Bigelow were married at one time and Hollywood like that kind of saucy tale. Every crunch of sand beneath a soldier's foot, every bullet fired, every bomb detonated, the strained breathing of a bomb technician underneath his cumbersome suit, all of this is beautifully rendered and prioritized and brought to fully formed life by this transfer. None of that would bother me, but when you tell Joe Public that this is what a Soldier gets up and does in the morning, it just contributes to the already aggravated misconceptions about service members and veterans. But no movie is going to affect everybody the same way. More than that, I love the small nuances of the movie, like music and banter in the barracks, tripping over in combat, little superstitions here and there. The rest of the movie follows Jeremy Renner's character as he goes about dismantling a series of hair-raising bombs. As an elite Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal team tactfully navigates the streets of present-day Iraq, they face the constant threat of death from incoming bombs and sharp-shooting snipers.
She was given a studio in a former Offtrack Betting building, literally in an old bank vault, where she made art and waited to be criticized by people like Richard Serra, Robert Rauschenberg and Susan Sontag. I had a similar experience after watching The Thin Red Line, although that was well before I was in the army. So, a lot like Jarhead? I was a senior in College and worrying about the economy and whether I'd get hired, and that movie was so terrifying to me yet somehow uplifting. It was the second highest-rated film of 2009, behind Pixar's Up. We find it easier to dismiss it on technicalities so we can ignore the real message.
It hit me so hard. Thankfully, the commentary and the audio with the image gallery fills in the blanks. People don't want to see what specialists actually do, because it's usually boring to the unitiated and filled with jargon and tons of other crap they don't understand because they haven't been trained on it. When a new sergeant, James, takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict, he surprises his two subordinates, Sanborn and Eldridge, by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat, behaving as if he's indifferent to death. It wasn't a michael bay fuck fest where an explosion is happening every 10 seconds and it isn't a pretentious circle jerk that only film snobs could enjoy.
Because it's not just the action sequences that get you riled up. Hands down, this is one of 2010's first must own Blu-ray releases. He has successfully disabled 873 devices, approaching the job with the no-nonsense grit of a Bigelow hero—and the recklessness too. It was visceral, intense, and the story was simple. They are every bit as committed as Renner, with a different goal. It makes me remember how much I miss my war.
Ok, this is cheesy and unrealistic. Sanborn and Specialist Owen Eldridge are members of a bomb-disposal unit in Baghdad. I honestly think you can just do it solo since the bots are pretty op. That way you dont have to defend the entire game. Get ready for a huge escalation in the war on P2P.
There is one thing about this movie that got to me and hit me as a true moment. It also helps prevent mods from profiling and censoring. I don't have close friends who have gone through it. Literally there's not a second that goes by when you're not gripping your armrest in breathless anticipation. It's a stunner; an absolutely wonderful transfer, totally worthy of the movie. They patrol Baghdad during one of the Iraq war's most hellish times, trying each day not to get blown up. How often do you get to see a war movie about a guy who defuses bombs like a cowboy? The job is simple enough, but the room for error is zero.
