24. I agree with much of what you say but wish to point out
That it is hard for a real war movie to find "the character" when the characters of war are often blown up.

Haven't seen the movie yet, but have heard that no matter which characters you decide to get attached to in the film, they get blown up.

And I am glad that it won - even though like you say, "Avatar" might be the better picture.

It is time that we stop putting the political issues that confront us on the back burner. Maybe it is poetic justice that just this once, some real issues are brought to the forefront.

There will always be an "Avatatr" or "Titanic" or a "Lord of the Rings" series that is lavish and well produced, but whose themes do not demand human consideration. I mean, whether the audience likes Sauron or not, we cannot do a thing about his take over of the Shire.

But since an Academy Award encourages people to see a film, maybe this will get people to watch the film, to think. And then to discuss.
