Hurt Locker Payback

There was a big reason why one of the most astounding and brilliant science fiction movies of all time, Avatar, from two years ago didn't win the oscar for best picture. It was anti war and anti corporatism. The oscar for best picture that year went to a movie called The Hurt Locker, a war acceptance project from Avatar's director's ex wife.
Tell me this isn't tied into that travesty.

Obama campaign to get big-screen bin Laden boost?

"The most memorable moment of President Obama's tenure so far -- the May raid that killed Osama bin Laden -- is getting the Hollywood treatment from an Oscar-winning director and screenwriter.

And it's going to be released less than a month before Election Day 2012.

The yet-to-be-titled project from director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal -- the duo behind The Hurt Locker, which won the Oscar for best film of 2009 -- is scheduled for release on Oct. 12, 2012.

The focus of the film is on Navy SEAL Team 6, which performed the bin Laden operation, but some political observers can't help but wonder how much it will touch on Obama's role, and how it might affect his re-election bid at that stage of the campaign."
