9-11 For Sale

I feel a little strange about paying 10 bucks to go and see a movie about the 9-11 attacks.  Universal studios is presenting a “real-time” depicition of the events of the morning of 9-11 on flight 93.  Strange thing, Discovery released The Flight That Fought Back some time back, and it was a very interesting depection of those events.

These movies are unique because of the gravity of the events to which they depict.  When I watched the Discovery movie, the same spectrum of emotions that I felt on 9-11 were again palpable.  It was presented as a documentary style and purported to unbiasly present the facts of the Flight 93 story to me.  Hollywood on the other hand does a poor job at unbias.  At best, they can base on true stories, and then grossly exagerate.

There is something about paying for this story to be retold to me again.  Even the news, when these stories were first shared, did not charge me a dime.  For three days, commercialism stood still.  The news ran commercial free for 72 hours in a row.  But now more than four years after the fact, Hollywood is going to charge us.  Nice.

I guess I will wait until I can file share this one.
