I really enjoyed the movie. However, I didn't even know about it until I saw the director on the Colbert Report, when I decided I wanted to see it. I wound up seeing it as a double-feature with Inglorious Basterds at a drive-in. The Hurt Locker was premiered back in 2008 and didn't get wide release until the last weekend of July 2009. I think I saw them both the weekend Inglorious Basterds released, at which point The Hurt Locker had been premiered almost a year earlier. Seriously, why sit so long on a movie for release?
