Just curious of some thoughts on a possible 911 movie. I haven't heard alot on the subject, which surprises me.
I have been wondering about this since the tragic day of when they would try to profit off of this tradgedy. I think of Pearl Harbour, Titanic and the money they made off these disasters.
Alot more time passed before a movie was made of them, I don't see 5 years passing before a movie has been made of 911 and i was wondering if people see it as a welcoming tribute or a cheap effort at making money off a hot topic.
Have the families been through enough and should be respected to not be put through this?
What are some thoughts on the subject

Their shoudn't be a 9/11 movie. It would be disrespectful in my opinion and no one would go to see it. Maybe in a few generations their could be one, but the world is still fighting terrorism, it's too soon.

I agree to the above poster. Way to soon! Maybe in a couple decades, but not now.

Hey, where you guys been?

ABC has “The 9/11 Commission Report” in the works. Two movies including “Flight 93” from Universal are planned. Oliver Stone is directing a 9/11 movie for Paramount.

There've been a couple of "Made for TV" movies about 9/11, too.

Is it too soon?

When isn't too soon?

In all honesty, I think the sterilisation of TV after 9/11 is not a good thing...if we have to "rub out" pictures of the WTC in Law & Order, etc, because it might offend someone, then we're actually giving in to terrorism.

Surely the better option would be to carry on as before? And not let our lives be disrupted that way?

9/11 movie ?

as long the film is based on facts i dont have any problem with it.

truth is always good.

i dont want to see a movie based on government satements to the press.

remember they have been caught lying.

Ohhh Boy...:shk: I was a soldier who was called to active duty that very tragic day. I remember the broadcasts, the exact things I was doing at that moment, I had to go there, 2 days after it happened- I was there from the 13th to the 14th. The smells wouldn't wash out of my uniform for quite some time, I swear I can still smell, what can only be described as death. It took me a year before I could even watch a broadcast about what had happened. Many of my friends were ambulance drivers, cops and firefighters, who were also fellow soldiers in NYC. Watching something about this would be waay too soon, it'd be like going to the funerals all over again...

I'm sure there's quite a few who feel this way too.

And you did an amazing job in just being there

It's painful yes - and I'm sure many WWII vets were pained after viewing that opening scene in SPR, but if for no other reason, it might let the rest of us gain some insight into exactly how it did feel to be a part of those tragic events, as most of us weren't there.

I just can't help but wonder if, by avoiding the subject in popular culture, that we're not actually giving the terrorists what they want?

We can't be terrorised like this.

You are right to a certain degree, From what Ive heard the SPR soldiers, who are still alive and saw the film, said it was the most realistic film made about the war. The emotions ran very high after seeing that for the screener, they were invited to first showing out of respect.

That happened many years ago, and there is a difference between 54 years after 1944(SPR came out in 98), and 5 years after 2001. It would have to be extremely accurate. And done tastefully.

And thank you for the thumbs, Im passing em on right now on AIM to my guys in Iraq
