She also directed the twisted, brilliant "Strange Days," a criminally underrated flick.

/yes, I love it
//the DVD release farking sucks

She also directed The Hurt Locker you neanderthal.

'Point Break' is also one of the pillars of the Swayze/Reeves/Kiedis film canon.
fark you, subtard.

She beat out her ex hubby James Cameron for the Oscar that year too.


I wall always love her for "Near Dark" because vampires catch fire in sunlight instead of sparkling.

Subby here. In my defense, I was praising Point Break, not bashing it or The Hurt Locker.

I'm merely holding up Point Break as one of the finest achievements in film, as established by Hot Fuzz canon.

It's Road House without the monster truck or the polar bear.

Oh, so now you're badmouthing Road House?

That doesn't matter. You offended my limited sensibilities, so I'm starting a White House petition to have the President revoke your TF Membership.

I, for one, have forgiven you and decided you are a good egg who just doesn't express himself well in headlines.

Hurt Locker was terrible.

Can't we all just agree that she's a pretty great director and deserves her academy achievements?

Precisely what I stopped by to say. Outstanding performances from Tom Sizemore, Ralph Fiennes and Angela "Mrs. Apos" Bassett. Sad to hear that the DVD transfer is poor, though.

So much THIS, on both counts. I keep holding on to (probably false) hope that the reason we haven't seen a blu ray release yet is because maybe Criterion could one day prep a fully stocked special edition. I flipping love that movie. One of the best trailers as well, ever.

Chiming in with traxan and Apos with appreciation for Strange Days.

Still gotta get around to seeing Near Dark, oddly enough.

Love that movie. Even if she did poach most of the cast from Cameron.

This makes me sad, though:

Now that is a vampire flick worth watching. Lance Henrickson and Bill Paxton-aka the James Cameron crew- were superb.

The funny thing about that is Kathryn Bigelow was approached to direct the second Twilight film. That cover is a travesty.

It's the movie that encourages every gamer to fire the Zapper into the air and go "ARRRRRRRRRRRGH" after missing the last duck in Duck Hunt.


Apos: Now that is a vampire flick worth watching. Lance Henrickson and Bill Paxton-aka the James Cameron crew- were superb.


That I've gathered, aye!

It just slipped my mind for some odd reason. Saw it on Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments special and wanted to see it, but forgot about it along the way.

I understand that directors like to direct big blockbuster franchises with built-in fanbases from time to time, but that... ugh.

No. Just no. Kathryn Bigelow needs to build upon the good stuff that netted her the Best Picture/Director Oscars for The Hurt Locker.

*chuckle*. Very true. As for ND, it's mind-boggling that it's rarely, if at all, aired on TV anymore. It seems to have fallen through the cracks into movie oblivion-which is a damn,damn shame.

Because she and screenwriter Marc Boal were constantly dogged by the continual and ultimately ineffectual right wingers, they've had to eliminate all references to President Obama.

Do they mention bin Laden?
