BOOM!! ScraPPPPee! And the next building is destroyed and torn apart---wait, the next EXPLOSION. Look at all the dust!!!!
It seems that every big-budget movie which is aimed at teens and males in their young 20s glorifies and capitalizes on the viewers conscious,
subconscious and/or their repressed memories of 9-11. New York seems to take the brunt of some of those movies, and is razed and dragged over the
coals reguarly on screen (I don't want to get into specifics - I personally hate spoilers and think there's something wrong with both people that
spoil movies for others or the people who actually like spoilers i.e. previews). And the people who have the 9-11 horror and its purposely
fear-induced aftermath imprinted on their "This is how the way the world is" brain coding are those who were young when it happened. In the United
States particuarly, young people either remember 9-11t, were aware of the fear in their parents and other adults because of it, and/or have been
exposed to it ever since in almost daily reminders. The meme of 9-11 is vast for those of a certain age.
So what do the studios do? Capitalize on it! Glory to the profit. A profit in its own country. etc.
The point of this thread is to see if others agree with this, as well as to give younger people watching those films another perspective of why they
may enjoy them so much, other than the wonder of the special effects.
I'd write further on the subject but......INCOMING!!!!! BLLLAAABOOOOOMMMM.
