Is it bad if I’m not interested in seeing this movie? Like Brokeback Mountain, does it make me a terrorist if I don’t go see United 93?
No, it makes you a terroristophobe.
saying it’s “too soon” implies that there will be a time in the future when this movie would be appreciated. i don’t see it that way. we’ve all seen and read so much news coverage of all this, we just don’t need a movie. the value that a hollywood movie could add would be to provide an interpretation of the characters and events that everyday news cannot provide–but from what i’ve seen, this is just a retelling of the story that would be more appropriate for a made-for-tv movie or documentary.
A&E did a movie of this called “Flight 93,” interspersing real footage and audio into the presentation. It was very affecting.
I’m looking forward to it. Why make any movie? Why make “Brokeback Mountain,” or another romantic comedy, or another horror film?
I said a different quote when I saw the previews.
“I can’t believe they made it.”
Shocking really. But of course I will see it. Here I am, living in New York City, multiple times a week staring at this gaping hole where the world trade center USED to be.
The audience was stunned to silence in the theatre. There was no yelling, no protests. Because we want to see it. Just as much as we want to see the accident on the roadside.
I didn’t watch the trailer with the amazment of watching a car crash. I live a long way from New York too, so I’m sure that it means a lot more to someone directly effected by 911.
I think it’s great that they made the movie. I think they should make all kinds of movies. Even gay cowboy ones. That doesn’t mean that I’m interested in seeing them. Honestly, I’m afraid that this movie will try to make us sympathetic towards the terrorists. If that’s not the case, I’ll be surprised that it came out of Hollywood, and I’ll probably watch it.
