I wish one of the partisans for The Hurt Locker would explain exactly what is so exceptional about the film.

To me this drearily apolitical movie with facile psychological portrayals is just another boring action flick, not much different from Stephen Hopkins's 1994 bomb-centric Blown Away.

I think it's gonna stay as long as the ratings are high and there's no inclusion that's gonna make a lot of people go, "WTF?!?" Although one could argue with that with one or two of the inclusions here.

I voted for Inglourious Basterds out of the 7 films I've seen on this list.

I voted for A Serious Man and will likely be the only person to do so. Its surprise inclusion prevents me from voting for The Hurt Locker which I applaud on quality and principle.

Vote not who you feel will win, but if you were an Oscar voter and voting for best picture, what box would you check?
