    I am hearing there are rave reviews for this movie. They almost got back what they put into it this weekend during the opening. It is now number two at the box office. Did anyone here go see it ?? if so what did you think ??

    I didn't see it, and I don't know if I want to. The thing I do like about it, from the things I seen, are that they don't have any big name actors in it, and there is no Hollywood ending. They say it is more like a documentary than anything. I think having big name actors in it would have ruined it ..

    out of respect to the people who lost their lives..I'm not filling the pockets of some hollywood producer with my money based on a tragedy...It just does not seem right IMHO...

    True some producer is making money, but that's the only reason there are movies made in Hollywood anyway.

    I think that fact that every single family that was affected by the Flight 93 crash supporting the movie is a pretty big reason in favor of going to see the movie.

    I think a portion of the proceeds from it is going towards the memorial and such for the families .... Don't quote me on it, though.

    yeah only 10% of the 1st 3 days of the movie playing

    Writer-director Paul Greengrass' "United 93" will open April 28 and Universal Pictures will donate 10 percent of the first three days' grosses to the memorial, the Families of Flight 93 announced Thursday.

    I am boycotting the movie, based on the reasons that tdinc stated and my own personal feelings. I think if they had waiting longer... like maybe atleast a decade it would not be as bad. Its not like people have forgot what happened already....:eek:

    I don't personally care about the too soon aspect or the money angle.

    I just don't "feel" the movie.
