  • United 93: Yay or Nay

       April 24, 2006

    United 93, the first major 9/11 movie, comes out this week. The filmmakers worked closely with the families of the passengers and crew, but some say it's still too early to make movies about 9/11.

    I'm planning on seeing the movie. I'll probably cry like a baby, but I still want to see it. I'm curious to see what kind of box office the film does. Maybe our latest poll will provide a hint.

    interesting article about how the filmmakers struggled with how to elevate (or not) the heroism of some passengers over that of other passengers.

    And this is precisely why I have no interest in seeing the movie. It's all pure fantasy portrayed as fact, and for no purpose. No one knows what happened. Relatives of one of the pilots, depicted as killed in the movie, believe he was alive, at the controls, and actively sabotaging the hijackers efforts. The idea that the people making phone calls were responsible for a passenger revolt is all specualtion.

    well Henry Fonda didn't single handedly win WWII either, but that didn't stop you from seeing The Battle of the Bulge.

    I only watched that on TV, and didn't like it.

    Here's the pilot's wife's take:

    I read that article and I don't see anything in there about him being at the controls. She says that they think his throat was cut but he was slowly dying and may have disabled the auto-pilot. No one thinks he was actually at the controls while the plane was going down.

    There isn't any room in the cockpit anywhere else but at the controls in his seat.
