The Hurt Locker
They say that the central duel of this year’s film retrospectives is between former lovers Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron. I don’t necessarily agree with this, but given that I’ve given out awards to one of each right off the top it would seem that I can’t even avoid the matchup. But for the shootout category, The Hurt Locker has earned this award fair and square. It might simply be the best sniper duel ever filmed, and I like sniper duels almost as much as I like mech suits.
