    It's been getting solid previews across the board-but I don't think I could stomach sitting in a theater watching it.

    Then again, I only ever see popcorn movies in the cinema- I have to be in the right frame of mind for more serious films like the woodsman,machinist etc and usually catch films with something to say on dvd.....

    honestly, I find that movie to be more like a vehicle to hit people's sweet spots for the tragic and the familiar at the same time

    the other movies you mentioned are in way different leagues

    I'm not going. Too damned soon. It would be like making Schindler's List in 1950.

    I'm not going to see it.Not because its too soon, it just looks boring. Its an incredible piece of history, but it certainly not the greatest idea for a film.

    I'll be seeing it as soon as I can.

    This isn't the first time Hollywood has produced a film about tragedy - heck, they made films about WWII BEFORE the war was over..........
     
  15. I'm not seeing it to be honest. Seems to be nothing more than propaganda to show how America is much better than everyone else.

    What happened on 9/11 was very tragic. But right now, it's way too soon and out of respect for the families, friends, and loved ones who perished in that destruction, there's no way I would've done this movie 5 years later.

    I've heard it's been getting good to great reviews, so who knows, maybe there's something that I don't know about this film.

    This isn't about the WTC, this is about Flight 93, and everyone who says its too soon to make this film because of the tragedy is wrong IMO. "Its never too soon to honor true American heroes." Exact quote from one the critics, although i think the movie looks boring, I do not think the filmmakers motives should be questioned. I feel that even Hollywood has nothing but respect for these people. I would not say its about America propaganda, but a look at human nature, particularly the ability to do good rather than the ability to do evil which I think many movies tend to exploit more than the other.

    I already watched this when it was made for tv :o There wasn't a reason for a second adaption.

    And the families of the people killed all agreed and allowed this movie to be made. In all honesty, your opinion on whether or not it's too soon, means nothing compared to the opinions of people directly involved.
     
  18. I'm not speaking for them, so your opinion on what I think means nothing in all reality. What I'm saying is you have others who have lost family, friends, and so forth in the tragedy, and I'm sure most of them don't want to be reminded of 9/11.

    Nice way of trying to spin a mere fact into a complete and utter misunderstanding on your part. I know families involved agreed to do this and that's their right, however, in MY opinion and I'm sure others probably agree that it's too soon for a movie like this.

    I'm probably not going to see it. It's not that I necessarily think that it shouldn't have been made. I'm still not sure how I feel about it in that respect acdtually. It's that I have no desire to see what transpired on 9/11 again...even if it's just film reinactment, etc. I think all the proceeds from the box office should go the 9/11 victims. Or at least a good chunk of the proceeds.

    just got back from the movie. it was good! a real solid film. and theres absolutely no propaganda in it. the film isnt taking sides, nor does it have any sort of political agenda. its just a depiction of the people on the plane, what they went through, and how their heroic acts saved the lives of countless others. the film isnt about the tragedy of these peoples lost lives, its about their bravery that should be remembered and celebrated.

    my only concern about the movie is...how good of a movie would it have been, had this not been actual events? if the film played the exact same way, but 9/11 had never happened, flight 93 never happened, if this were just a fictional movie about a fictional highjacking, would it still have been a good film? because, i think movies, whether based on actual or fictional events, in the end still need to be good solid films. and its tough to say whether or not i'd consider it a good film had this been a fictional tale.
