United 93 Vs. Flight 93 Comparison....

Sun Sep 24, 2006 1:59 am

I understand there have been forums created for each respective movies, however, most of them dealt with equipment details, etc.... Not that this is a film critic website, I was wondering if any of you had seen both movies. I personally watched Flight 93 two weeks ago and just finished watching United 93 yesterday. I must tell you, I like Flight 93 a lot better. I thought the story was more intimate, more personal than United 93. I noticed couple differences between the movies....well stating the obvious where Flight 93 is more focused on the family's perspective and United 93 being focused more on the FAA/military standpoints.... The details as far as how the passengers entered the cockpit (pouring boiling water vs. just running straight towards the hijackers; the intended target) were interesting. I was wondering what other A.netters thought about the movies, which one did you like best? What differences did you notice? Which difference/movie did you think was more believable/credible? How come there hasn't been a movie about AA Flts# 11 and 77 and the other UAL flight#175? One thing is for sure though, both movies raised the hair on the back of my neck....can't help but think how tragic that day was, even five years later. I remember the exact place I was on that horrendous day... I just hope our lives can one day be as simple and safe as they once were.

I can't tell you how proud we were during United 93 when we saw and heard those pax beating down the hijackers, literally cracking open those a-rabs heads with fire extinguishers. I was in a theater with 10 of my other military buds, and countless others, the theater just eruped in euphoria...favorite scene of the whole movie.

Don't take this personally, but that is what is wrong with the world today. I'm ok with you being angry, but celebrating the death of anyone, even if you think they "deserve" to die (which by the way was the mantra of said terrorists), is wrong. How anyone can take pleasure in seeing someone die is beyond me.

It is your opinion. Just take into consideration what a most famous chap once said:

"An eye for an eye will leave the World blind"

We understand that 9-11-01 was a horrific day. Yet we cannot move on with such vile hatred. It was terrible, being the stronger person and taking a higher road is much more powerful!

Yes but your not trying to say you think what the people on that flight did was wrong, correct? I'm just trying to make sure, because sure its wrong to celebrate a persons death like Pilot3033 said (even thought the terrorists would have died regardless, so I think it is really not bad to be proud of what the people on Flight 93 did) but what they did was completely justified.

Justified, yes.. However, glorifying or talking about that flight time and time and time and time again. It is almost like a broken record. All people ever hear about are the saintly firefighters, and the passengers on Flight 93. There were thousands of other people killed. It makes one wonder what really happened to Flight 93. The American boss man likes to talk about the passengers on 93 over and over and over and over again. Almost out of guilt. Like there was some sort of secret or guilt he had about that flight!  wink

While I'll agree that it is talked about a lot, its a part of history and history in general is usually talked about a TON no matter what it is! (I do think it was a very important and emotional day though) You lose me though when you try and say we have guilt and something to hide, but that dosent really matter to me. I just wanted to clear that up.  Smile
