Denial Ain't Just A River On Planet Pandora

Not that I pay any attention to the Oscars as a rule, but I am pleased to read that a movie about real people in the real world got Best Picture instead of one about computer-animated make-believe Noble Savages. I am even more pleased that Avatar apparently didn't pull anything higher than "Best Computer-Geek Tricks." You can put a lot of hi-tech whistles and bells on long-haired hippie crap, but it still smells just as bad. (Sooper-sekret message to James Cameron: HA-ha!)

Indeed, I may even have to see The Hurt Locker, although I don't have much of a stomach for that kind of thing. Danger UXB was hard enough for me to sit through.

Ah, Danger UXB. Remember watching that when it first aired on public TV.

I have not seen either movie (well snippets of "Locker"), but agree with you completely.

Watched The Hurt Locker instead of the Oscars show. It's a very good movie. Very good.

I watched Saving Private Ryan. First time I saw it in HD.
