United 93 movie

Roger Ebert gave this movie a great review so went to see it this afternoon. Movie was very good but very hard to take. Like a torture, and I left with post traumatic stress disorder. Semi documentary style and focus inside the plane in last part of film is very intense. I totally disagree with those who say it is exploitative or disrespectful to memory of the victims. Good to be reminded of the tragedy lest we forget!

9/11/2001 is our generation's Pearl Harbor and everything is different post 9/11. We are at war with Moslem fanatical terrorists, and have been for many years before we joined the battle. This war will last decades, like the Cold War with communism did from 1945 to 1989. Get used to some bad news and some bad tragedies before it is over...

Drank a good bottle of wine to sedate the jangled nerves. Life goes on, but the anger is still there.

Amen. I haven't seen the movie. But I don't need the reminder. You said it - we are at war. Too many of us have forgotten, want to forget, or have somehow forgiven. It sickens me when I see France burning, genocide in Darfur, worldwide bombings and slaughter - and American apologists trying to seperate those acts from 911. It's one in the same. We'd better get used to the fact. Thank you for bringing the light of truth back to where it belongs!

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

United 93 was well done, moving and tough but very realistic. Whether every detail is correct is irrelevant. The reconstruction appears reasonable given what is known and recorded from phone calls. Reminders and audio visual demonstrations are useful. We must win this war no matter how long it takes.
