What’s so different about this one?

I was reading tonight as I was listening to the local news. I found an article about Paramount Pictures movie ‘World Trade Center.’ I saw the preview when I went to see Clerks II last weekend. At first I was disgusted. I did not go see ‘United Flight 93’, nor did I finish watching A&E’s ‘Flight 93’ I just could NOT bring myself to even be interested in seeing those two movies.

Something grabbed my attention with this one. I get a different feeling from this movie than I did from the others. I can’t put my finger on it and I have NO idea what the difference is. This movie intrigues me. It doesn’t mean I’ll go see it, it just means it intrigues me. I do have to say that if I were to watch any of these movies, it would be this one. I went to to check out the credits and found there are some pretty big names in this movie. Nicholas Cage, Maria Bello, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Stephen Dorff, just to name a few. Maybe it’s the big names of the people starring in it. Maybe it’s the draw of seeing big names try to do justice to the hero they are portraying. Oliver Stone directed it. I don’t know what it is, but it opens in like 2 weeks.

I was so against United Flight 93 (or whatever it was called) and EXTREMELY against A&E’s version of the Flight 93 tragedy. Why am I NOT so against this WTC movie? I wonder if it’s the fact it was written by a survivor of September 11th? I wonder if it’s because a lot of the people (characters) portrayed in the movie survived.

What do you think? Will you go see this movie? Are you for it? Are you against it? If you have an idea on why I’m feeling a lot of apathy about this movie compared to the anger and betrayal I felt on the Flight 93, let me know.

On a completely different note, don’t forget to visit Laci every 30 minutes tomorrow starting at 6am Pacific time. It’s the Blogathon so there are lots of people doing this. Throughout the day and evening tomorrow, I’ll be visiting the blogs, I hope you do too!

Until next time…. 😎

    I felt the same way about the first two movies you mentioned, I just don’t get it the news did a pretty good job at reporting what happened on that dradful day. I know I will never forget, therefore I didn’t feel I needed to see a movie (to me movies are for entertainment) to remind me of those events.

    As for the new movie I just saw the other day a preview and so far haven’t given it a second thought. We’ll see.

    I’m not so much against the movie existing altogether as I am against it being made now. I just think it’s way too early. I don’t think we have enough distance from the actual events, and it disturbs me that this movie company is capitalizing on this major tragedy that happened still not all that long ago and that is still an intensely sensitive subject to many people.

    It’s kind of like the Pearl Harbor movie. That was a huge tragedy in its day, but there are enough people now who weren’t even born back then that a little distance and little objectivity is possible.

    Anyway, that’s my two cents.
