In reply to:

The acting wasn't much cop either, script was better, using transcripts of original telephone conversations, not a well made film, I was expecting to feel moved by this, I felt nothing.

Oliver Stones film will be the one to see.



United 93 was a chilling recreation of how it probably happened. The technology was current because, with the exception of the plane, the places and the people in them were real. The flight operators in the movie are playing themselves, for example. The actors in the plane had intimate knowledge of the lives of the people they were playing, and were allowed to improvise with that information in mind.

I guess for some people it's easier to be moved by Nicholas Cage trapped under concrete, yelling "GO! SAVE YOURSELF!" to a tear-eyed fireman who promises he'll "tell his wife" or "never forget".

I say nuke those fucking burger-gobblers! All of them! (but please keep San Francisco).

There is considerable overlap between the intelligence of the smartest bears and the dumbest tourists.

Nice little poem, very concise. I like it.

Oliver Stone said he made this film devoid of politics on purpose, he fully intends to make another film with the political slant on it.

You mean the film was done on the cheap, how nice for the relatives.

Re: Not likely to forget something like that! [re: diamondogz74]  

The relatives were involved in the production.

How is using the actual places and people "cheap"? It would have been easier to get generic sets and fill them with extras yelling dramatic lines. As evidenced in his film "Bloody Sunday", director Paul Greengrass is deeply committed to the truth. He did everything to ensure the film would be as realistic as a movie on this subject could possibly be.

From what I've seen of Oliver Stone's film, it looks like he's taking the easy way and making a standard Hollywood movie about "courage and heroism" (and possibly "love and friendship"). It may use a real tragedy like 9/11 as the context for its plot, but the characters themselves barely resemble human beings. I can't say I'm surprised to find that walking clichés move you more than real people, though...
