Flight 93 pushed the envelope; This New "Twin Tower" movie is taking it too far!
Ok. I was pretty vocal among my friends when Flight 93 came out; I intended to write a post about it, but finals got in the way. It is way too soon for Hollywood to be attempting to make money on a national tragedy. I would have been more concerned, but Flight 93 came and went so quickly in headlines and conversations that I almost forgot it existed. That is until my unexpected viewing of the trailer of the next theatrical attempt at capitalizing on 9/11.
My wife and I were at the movies, and the very first trailer to play was "Twin Towers". It basically runs like this:
Dramatic Music Starts playing.
Cops getting to work in the morning.
Cops seeing on TV that a plane hits the World Trade Center.
Cops driving to the scene.
Some cops to scared to go in, they take volunteers and a few step up.
Dramatic Music intensifies.
The Tower starts to fall down.
Cops trapped inside.
3 or 4 Shots of women crying while watching the Towers fall on TV.
Are you freakin kidding me!! Do we need to be reminded of all of the women that had to watch as the buildings their husbands worked in toppled to the ground? What sort of cheap stunt is that? Didn't it ever occur that maybe some 9/11 widow might go to watch a movie and have to sit there watching a dramatization of what they went through? I felt sick after seeing that.
