Watched this movie last night. While it's nominated for best picture, I don't think it will win. There are other movies in the category like Lincoln, which I think will clean house at the awards.

That said, I really enjoyed Zero Dark Thirty. The lead is very strong in her role and I couldn't help but like her throughout the film. I would rate it 8.5/10.

I didn't like it. didn't think it was as amazing as people said it was. I like the fact that it wasn't propaganda-ish. I don't think its the real story of what happened, because that is still classified information. The movie was okay.

Hurt locker is 10 times better.

Hurt Locker won multiple awards, something I don't think ZDT will. Hell, I liked Life of Pi more which is also nominated for best picture.

Whole movie just felt like they tried to force feed us a Homeland movie, in their minds something better than Homeland, but not even close.... just felt like Claire Dames' character was ripped off played by a different shittier actress and made into a movie.
I off course know that Claire Dames' Homeland character has been said to been based off the real life Mya, so it's all kind of neat.

But pretty much throughout the whole movie I kept comparing it to Homeland because of all the close ties, so the movie never held up because Homeland is that friggin good, wherein the shittiest episode of Homeland is still better written and acted than this whole damn movie.

Don't think it deserves all the hype it's getting. It's a good movie, but that's it. 7/10

Movie was pretty boring tbh.

Back in November I watched another movie about this same bin laden operation and it was much better, especially the ending scene.. I can't remember whats its called though if anyone could help give the name
