Default Which Movie This week?

Hubby and I have gotten in the habit of going to the movies lately. This week the 9/11 movie is coming out. We can't decide if we want to see it or not. Do you have an opinion on this movie, and the timing of it coming out?

I won't go see it. I don't feel that its right for Hollywood to make money from this.

Darcy's right, I won't watch it. If I want to feel sad, frustrated and helpless I just go to a gas station.

Nope, not going to see it. However we are looking forward to RV with Robin Williams.

Absolutely not. It is terrible that Hollywood is doing something like this .

No way, I will boycott that movie just on principle. And I'm not even American, nor do I know anyone affected first hand by 9/11.
Last weekend I went to see American Dreamz with Hugh Grant and Mandy Moore. It wasn't great, but it was mildly entertaining, and funny at times. A good spoof of American Idol really.

'Ditto' to all of the above posts! Not for me either.

Just watching the evening news is depressing enough....

No way!! The idea of people making money off of such a tragic event sickens me. Disgusting.

Instead of a Movie my niece and I and I think my son will be going to the local high school to see the Three One-Act plays that the drama club will be presenting.

Don't think I could bring myself to see the 9/11 film.

I think we have decided not to see it either. I did some research, and the families were involved in the making of the movie, and part of the earnings will go to a special fund for them, but Hubby is leaving on Sunday, and I don't want that movie stuck in my head.

i haven't decided if i want to see 911. I know that some of the families of the victims are behind this movie, they see it as a tribute to the real heros, a story that needs to be told.
