United 93

So once again, I feel like I'm on a different planet than everyone else. I saw the trailer for United 93, and I thought, "Wow, that looks very compelling, I can't wait to see it."

And then all hell broke loose, and all I read and see since is controversy and a couple of theatres pulling the trailers and pundits debating whether it's "too soon" to tell this story... even though it's apparently tastefully told and authorized by the families.

And all I could think of was, "Where was all this outrage when A&E ran Flight 93, a film of the same story, a couple of months ago?" It was an excellent and heartbreaking and inspiring movie, it got great reviews and huge ratings, and this past week everyone seems to have forgotten it ever existed.
