The Hurt Locker

Calvin is on vacation this week, so we have celebrated by going to see some movies. He had missed Up, which I was happy to see again, particularly since I bought comics from the story supervisor, Ronnie del Carmen at Comic-con.

Last night we went to see The Hurt Locker, a movie about a bomb squad in the Iraq war in 2004. This movie was exhausting and difficult to watch, but great. Terrific performances by Jeremy Renner and Anthony Mackie, I assume we're going to see a lot more of these guys. Kathryn Bigelow of Point Blank and Blue Steel fame directed. She flaunts her well-honed action movie skills here, but it doesn't feel like flaunting.
