    What`s so weird about this? It`s not like there haven`t been movies about real tragedies before. Is corporate America milking the Holocaust when they made Schindlers List?

    I didn`t put the phrase "Corporate America" in there. Not sure why it was added.

    Also, anyone not understanding the message here, let me spell it out for you:

    You probably haven`t seen this film, because if you had, you`d understand that it`s not "honoring" anyone, and it sure as hell isn`t "entertainment." It was a melodramatic crap-fest aimed at cashing in on a national tragedy.

    The difference between this and "Schindler`s List" is they don`t advertise movies about the Holocaust during Hanukkah, do they? No, but every year around 9/11 things like this pop-up, trying to make some more money off of the death of thousands of people.

    But no you`re right, I must be an idiot because you fail to see how poor in taste this is.

    @BrianofBrian, I haven`t seen this, but I assume its a lot like the Nick Cage movie about firefighters. I agree with you, its stupid that people are making money off this.

    Brain, I don`t care if it`s a crappy movie, that`s rather an insignificant point. There`s tons of crappy movies out there about serious things. There`s action and horror movies glorifying all kinds of murder and crimes. It`s all pretty damn disrespectful in the end.

    "Shall I point out the part where it says that it came out in 2006."

    That`s really the entire point.

    "Schindler`s List" was a well-conceived retrospective. A passion project by Spielberg aimed at telling one aspect of a gross world-tragedy. It was made nearly 50 years after the actual Holocaust and is considered a masterpiece of film.

    "United 93" was made 5 years after. It is riddled with hyperbole and trite patriotism. Try seeing it objectively without being blinded by your emotions surrounding that day.

    @Sarah The existence of other terrible action films doesn`t negate the disrespectful nature of advertising a #2.99 movie rental two days before the 10-year anniversary of one of the greatest national tragedies in the history of our country. Is that what the remembrance of 9/11 has been reduced to? A three-dollar movie rental?

    Corporate America? LOL.... how about all the charities that collect mucho dinero? Or all the politicians in Washington that milk it for whatever their cause is?

    Don`t be another lamb... manipulated by class envy, and lefty politics.

    If you didn`t put it there, then who did?
    Did a moderator change your topic when they approved it? Do we have a corporation hating moderator here at the site?

    Nah... they have integrity here!

    "The difference between this and "Schindler`s List" is they don`t advertise movies about the Holocaust during Hanukkah, do they?"
    I`m not Jewish, but I don`t think Hanukkah is a commemoration of the Jews struggle in nazi occupied Germany.

    I think it`s only really observed in the USA. Here, we have a four day weekend and it`s the last big pool party splash of the season. Maybe we should watch the video while the BBQ warms up. Does it have a happy ending?

    @cyborg: how the f vc|< is it NOT imporant? 9/11 ushered in a new era of terror! the 21st century is very VERY influenced by 9/11! thousands of people died! a very prominent part of new york was destroyed and people have been on high alert ever since!
    i`m sorry, i`m not doing very good at saying how important it is, but SERIOUSLY? it`s so f vc|<ing important it`s ridiculous

    Cyborg is a stupid, embarrassing troll. 9/11 was the single most important even of the decade and will continue to define this nation, and the world, as a whole.

    "Cyborg is a stupid, embarrassing troll. 9/11 was the single most important even of the decade and will continue to define this nation, and the world, as a whole."

    Um, the world disagrees. You`re not doing well at dispelling the stereotype that America is self centred.
