For the first time in a number of years I found myself sitting in a theater, really wondering if I wanted to see the film about to start.
As people settled in to watch the early screening last night, everyone seemed a little nervous. Is it too early to do this film? What would Oliver Stone do with the story? What point was he going to make?
In the light of the new day?
Well, there's a lot to think about.
But, yes, it is time.
I believe the movie is geared toward the overzealous Hollywood moneymaking business. It's a little too soon to do this film and if moviemakers want to make it right then make a pledge from the profits of the movie to the members of the families who lost a loved one. Make that known to anyone who pays to see it especially in New York. We need more compassion and less greed from Hollywood, remember you did not experience the horror the people of New York did. To us it wasn't a movie it was very real!Shame on you greedy filmakers! To them (moviemakers) it's just another summer blockbuster film. Please don't make the movie seem like it's so insipiring, there are still many people who have not recovered from this awful tragedy! Not even 5 years. That's insensitive to those who were innocent victims in the building, remember them because they will never be forgotten as well those who risked their lives to save them.
