    I assume you mean Oliver Stones World Trade Center, and no I haven't seen it yet but I plan on doing so this weekend. I've seen Flight 93 (A&E movie) as well as United 93 (theatre) and liked it however I think this one will be alot better.

    From my understanding, it's a very UPLIFTING movie, and isn't about drama and trying to make people feel bad. It is supposed to actually have a good feel to it, and shed a whole new light on the WTC situation.

    From the reviews I have seen, it has a very happy ending to it.

    I just don't have any desire to relive anything about that day. It might very well be a great movie, but I don't plan to see it.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    I'm sure it will be the feel-good event of the summer.

    I know that movies get made about current events/tragedies all the time, but something about a movie studio trying to turn a profit from a movie about the WTC attacks feels very wrong to me... I mean, the sensible part of my brain knows that it is okay, and I'm a big 1st amendment guy, but that's still my underlying feeling about this movie.

    Still feel like it's too soon to have made something like this.

    So Tora! Tora! Tora!, Pearl Harbor, Schindler's List (and every other movie about the Holocaust), etc., etc. should not have been made? Or does it make it more acceptable that significant time has passed since the events these movies have portrayed occurred?

    I will go see it, if for no other reason than I actually like most of Oliver Stone's movies (not Alexander though). Also, one of my college roomies is an FDNY and one of my friends was killed while working for Cantor Fitzgerald. Donate to his memorial foundation here: http://www.markhindycf.org/

    I think the relatively small amount of time plays a role... maybe also how this event is so singularly unique from anything else in American history.

    I thought World Trade Center was so-so, but I thought United 93 was one of the best movies I'll ever seen in my life.

    I saw a preview where they interviewed the director of it. I just thought he was silly, he was saying that if you look at how many people died and that a lone its a tragedy, but if see it as a event to bring people together and find heroes amongst it, its not a tragedy. This may be my personal opinion and don't know how u guys fell but, it's a tragedy no matter what, even if it did show the best in mankind and what humans are capable of.
    I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.
