The Zero Dark Thirty producers are making a big mistake by sending out waterboarding home kits along with the movie viewers. That's just not going to leave the right impression.

Chinchillazilla: I hope the Academy trolls the hell out of everyone and gives Best Picture to Django.

willfullyobscure: I haven't seen it, but I thought the movie did an excellent job in combatting stereotypes about our men and women in uniform and how they conduct the business of ensuring our liberty. Freedom isn't free and I fail to see how keeping a couple of towelheads from getting thirsty is too large a price to pay. If this movie wins enough prizes at the Golden Globes awards then it should send a real message to Hollyweird that the rest of us are sick of their softheaded lies.

But Ed Asner has no problem acting in a movie that endorses every crackpot JFK conspiracy theory without presenting a shred of evidence, including that LBJ was behind it?

coco ebert: I haven't seen ZDT yet but I have read critics state that while technically a wonderful movie, it depicts the capture of OBL as occurring because of info given up because of torture. If so, that's a problematic depiction since other journalistic sources indicate the capture largely didn't occur because of torture.

Capture, you say? Right after they put a bullet between the eyes.

Lizardking: How about no Oscar for Zero Dark Thirty because it was a crappy and undeserving movie? That a good enough reason?

Wasn't good enough for that piece of shiat "The Hurt locker" so, probably not.

Mad_Radhu: Isn't a big part of making of great movie challenging the viewer? Sometimes art has take people out of their comfort zones and challenge their perceptions.

And people laugh when I tell them Two Girls One Cup is the 21st century's Citizen Kane.

People who worry about which movie gets an Oscar need to find better things to worry about.
Like bellybutton lint, for instance...
