United 93

I just returned from seeing the movie "United 93". Good movie. See it.

Some have criticized "United 93" for being too soon after 9/11. Funny thing. No one criticized Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 911" on that ground when that anti-Bush movie came out in 2004.

I also must point out that the lapse of time from 9/11/2001 to today (4 years, 7 months) is greater than the lapse of time from the bombing of Pearl Harbor on 12/7/1941 to the end of World War II on 9/3/1945 (3 years, 10 months). During World War II, Hollywood put out patriotic war movies. Why didn't Hollywood put out a single patriotic war movie during the War on Terror in the same amount of time after 9/11? The answer has much to do with the anti-war bias of Hollywood, which did not exist in the patriotic environment of World War II.

"United 93" does not take a political stance. It simply portrays realistically the events of 9/11. The Left of today does not want to be reminded of the reality of 9/11.
