Sorry, but I can't get with this one. Certainly it's clever and there is evident talent
but spoofing "United 93" someone feels like spoofing what those people did who died
keeping that jet from crashing into the White House.

I've never felt that I'm Mr. Politically Correct but this doesn't feel right.

Was it worth it? It's 90% a spoof of "300" anyway. Wasn't there another way to do
that?

I'd have more respect for an Al-Queda filmmaker because he would be espousing his
beliefs through a cruel insult. To do this just to show that you can make films?

that's a good and compassionate point, but have you considered that being able to laugh at wounds suffered at the hands of the enemy is somewhat similar to leonidas breaking all the arrows stuck in his shield with his spear?(few images sum up what i personally feel to be the spirit of this country like that one does) that basically says the damage you caused me is merely an annoyance, i have dealt with it, and am still standing tall, waiting for you to actually summon the courage to come close enough to me so that i can kill you.

keep in mind that we took this land from a culture that started to settle it during the last ice age, and who actually helped our explorers when they landed. the consequences of that beginning shape our collective destiny to a point. events like 9/11 are a manifestation of that birth and our economic and cultural imperialism. i'm not for terrorism, i think violence solves nothing. but i am not going to spend the rest of my life being brought down by the cowardly, misguided deeds of a few religious fanatics with nothing better to do, that played into the hands of a subsection of our ruling class that wants to exploit it for their own ends


i choose to honor the spirit of defiance of tyranny(both from outside our borders and from within) by not giving in to the drama of vengeance kept alive by the media fanning the cold flames of sorrow and pain, that we will be reminded of for the rest of our lives, but instead i choose to make creations that bring a different perspective on life, and how we can make it better, for all, whether they hate us or love us.

and i will laugh at those who try and stop me. because i am free

That sounds solid but I didn't get that from the video so unless I missed it; I'd say that more specific
refernces to "United" would be required to convey the still standing message that you're suggesting or else
drop the "United" angle altogether.

the great thing about creating something is that people get what they need to get out of it, whether intended or not...

i'm not trying to convince you of any point or angle, but your post about the movie and dishonoring those that tried to stop the terrorists made me think of how when all this was going on in real life i distinctly remember watching 2 seperate news reports of eyewitnesses telling how they saw a missile take that plane down. then i remember seeing the documentary called "loose change" by dylan avery that clearly shows explosive charges going off at the towers and that other building that went down, along with about a million other scientific anomalies about the official story line. i've also seen footage from the cameras near the pentagon, and that certainly was NOT a jumbo jet that hit that building... looked more like somebody strapped a rocket to an airstream trailer and fired it at it.

so when i think about those poor souls on that plane who may or may not have been trying to stop the "tearis" (as some of our less educated politicians call them) that hijacked it, and all the first responders and victims in manhattan that died for what basically amounts to political theatre. i get a little bit offended that a supposedly free country of free people continually have to be reminded to be sad and angry and feel the need for vengeance, lest we ever forget the alamo or pearl harbor or 9/11(all three of which were direct responses to less than savory actions taken by the US government -or the people of the republic of texas), and stop sending off our best and bravest young people to die to stop the US dollar from losing it's place as the currency that every other country has to use to buy oil with...the lunatic in charge of iran is now trying to start an oil exchange there that will allow countries to buy oil in their own currencies, and now we are ramping up the rhetoric for war against iran..


oh god, now i'm i-ranting, but that's why it's important to make controversial films like "United 300". inspire people to actually have honest responses to what is going on in the world...

and because sometimes it's good to make fun of ohio...

your response was a visceral response, and so was mine, therefore they are equally valid...

;)
