I might. Don't think I'll be seeing the one about Flight 93 or the one they will surely make about the Pentagon.

Nope. I don't get to the theatre much these days, and surely wouldn't go for this movie.

Absolutely not.

I do not want to relive that experience again.

Will never forget it and it has changed my way of looking at the world.

Smile

Maybe if it was done as well as the movie " United 93"
I can't answer that for sure yet. I feel for the Familys of all of those people.
May we learn from the past so the future never repeats this kind of thing anywhere in the World.

We all are really the same, Give the next person you see a hug.

i thought united 93 was a good movie

I dont want to sound crude however....

DId any of you see Schindlers list.. I mean im not trying to compare the 2 well maybe i am. It was a terrific movie.

I think its important to see these movies and have them document historical moments (as long as they are very accurate unlike titanic - dont get me started on that one) Good and bad moments need to be documented

my point is. if you saw schindlers list (thousands and hundreads) of jewish people suffer then why wouldnt you see this movie?

The difference for me Jen is that 9/11 is still too fresh in my memory. It is simply too soon for me to go through the horror of that day again.

I do agree with you though that it is important that movies like this are made. Things like this need to be documented so that future generations know what happened and so that nothing like this ever happens again.

Jen, I saw Flight 93 also... it was a good movie but for me that was enough. I know what happened on 9-11. I felt it again when I saw 93.
I don't want to feel it again.

I've been to Dachau.. I saw the movies and read the
info and felt the pain. I won't be going there again either.

It's important to know what happened, I agree with that
but once you know YOU WON'T be able to forget so.. why see it again?

I understand its fresh dont get me wrong. however those of the the days of schindlers list probably think it was "too soon" for a movie like that as well. BUT

I think a lot can be learned from an educational movie like that. As a canadian i remember going down to make sandwichs for fire crew etc. The owner of the golf club i was at packed us all up and took us to help!

Not everyone got to see what I saw. and No offence to everyone here.. UNless you were there first hand you cant picture nor imagine the sites that are permenatly burned in my head. I think a movie like this can really show those what happend what went on (heck i dont think ANYONE truly knows what went on)

You know terror like this goes on in the world everyday ok maybe buildings arent hit but different types of terror with higher death rates then 911 (look at lebanon at the moment) and world hunger and Iraq etc. Maybe if we had more education on these things it wouldnt happen as much? Its like when you get caught for drunk driving and your shown those videos of people in accidents and usually it scares you sober!

Anyway im just saying Yes i would go see this movie!

I have relatives that were in the concentration camps and others that were not, but who lived during that horrible period. None of them (as far as I know) went to see Schindlers list.

I did see it and thought it was a very powerful movie, but had I been alive while it was happening for real I do not know if I would have been able to watch it.
