    Thanks.

    The biggest conundrum of this movie for me was figuring out what the title referred to.

    I know! The Navy really needs to put a stop to this. I feel bad for even wanting to see the movie.
    I guess it's gonna take for some of them to get killed before they do anything.


    It will probably be a good movie but the title is kind of annoying. I've heard "O Dark Thirty" multiple times but I've never heard someone say "Zero Dark Thirty" unless they were talking about this movie.

    Unless this is some Navy thing, I'd say it's a research fail on par with calling every special operations unit SF, which they hopefully don't do in this movie.
    Yikes!

    When I saw you say "O Dark Thirty" (which I have never seen before) I read it as the letter "O" then Dark Thirty. That might be why they called the movie Zero Dark Thirty. Of course, we'll probably hear all about why they called it that during the fury of media press it gets soon.

    @Jennifer
    "Zero Dark Thirty (or 15, 20, etc)" is a way of saying midnight and whatever the minutes are in military time. In military time, midnight is written "0000" (which I'm sure you're aware). So yeah, "zero dark thirty" is 12:30am.

    edit: Never mind. I had heard it used before to tell midnight, but apparently it's just slang for "late" like Metamorphosis mentioned.

    Colloquially however, the term is much more analogous to a saying like "the butt crack of dawn" or something similar.

    So this movie is about sticking their head up Osama's buttcrack?

    Unless you're in LA or NY, you won't be able to see it until January 11th.

    I suspect they just wanted it out SOMEWHERE by year's end so it could be an award contender.
