The Hurt Locker Beats Dances With Smurfs For The Best Picture Oscar

An outcome I found quite gratifying. (Especially since The Hurt Locker is actually a very good movie.) I’m not the only one to think so.

So let’s see: Every time Hollywood makes a film that shows American soldiers as heroes fighting difficult wars (The Hurt Locker, Black Hawk Down), they make money. Every time Hollywood makes a film depicting U.S. troops as bloodthirsty psychopaths (Redacted, Home of the Brave, etc.), they don’t just lose money, they hemorrhage it.

Is it possible for Hollywood to figure out that left-wing anti-war films with American troops as the villains don’t sell? (At least not unless you put tall blue aliens in as they good guys.) It’s probably too much to ask…
