United 93 (2006) - Ending Scene
A gem of a movie that was directed by Paul Greengrass. Still remains the definitive movie about 9/11. The ending still gets me every time.

Let's roll.

All of those passengers on that plane are all fricking heros in my book.

The last few minutes is one of the most intense, heart wrenching scenes ever caught on film

The thing I hate most is the how much the terrorists were just cowardly pieces of shite waging a war against people for idiotic reasons. It was all such a senseless waste of the Americans that were killed. Absolute tragedy of highest proportions. The only good that came out of it was that these were not able to hit anything because of the bravery of the passengers standing up to them so the scumbags did all that for nothing.

I actually watched this movie for the first time last night. It was much better than what I was expecting. The coverage of the air traffic controllers was remarkable.

I'll always remember how silent the theater was after the screen went black. Everyone sat there for a second, then just got up and walked out.

I saw it in theaters back in the day. Even tho you know it’s a fake movie, you feel so emotional after seeing it.

re: United 93 (2006) - Ending Scene
I actually appreciate how it mentions that some of the passengers wanted to do nothing for a while and let it all play out. Only after they heard what had happened to the other planes did they realize they needed to act.

People forget how regular plane hijackings in the 60s and 70s were. I'm no expert on the subject matter but if I understand usually the hijacker would hijack the plane, make some demand (release of a political prisoner or something), and land the plane and was either arrested immediately or tried to slip custody. I know I'm way oversimplifying that but I believe that's what it used to be like more less.

So it made sense for the the passengers on United 93 - and the passengers on other 3 planes - to kind of sit there and let the hijacking play out for a while. No one had seen or heard of using commercial airlines as a weapon like that.

Anyway, I'm glad that was a point they highlighted in the movie.

I haven't been able to watch any of the docs or coverage since that day. I lost a good friend from law school in NYC and my first company commander and mentor when I was a butter bar in the Pentagon. My wife and I were transfixed that day but had to put it behind us.

9/11 was a weird Tuesday morning for us. We had gotten back late Monday from Hawaii and had slept in so we woke up and started the day with no idea what was happening. It was before push notices on your phone. I called my grandmother to let her know we were back safe, just standard placating grandma, this was about 9:30 and she started freaking out on the phone about planes falling from the sky. My wife turned the TV on just when the reports of the pentagon crash were coming in. My wife is a doctor and death, dying and general mahem simply do not phase here, but she did the oddest thing I have ever seen her do, she quietly got a legal pad and a pen and took notes for about 8 hours. She wasn't trying to "solve" anything it was just the only thing she could do. She didn't take any of the tons of phonecalls we received that day and wouldn't allow me to speak except during the rare commercials until late that day.

The next morning I woke up to her sitting up in the bed, as I got up she said "If your unit gets activated don't come back a different man, I have loved three men that looked like you and I am afraid I might not love the forth". She was referencing how she said I was a different person when I can back from Granada and then again from Desert Storm. My unit wasn't activated until after I got out.

Sorry for the Oweo level post, not sure why this triggered thoughts from 18 years ago especially on the MTV board.

Exactly. It was unheard of that any regular person would assume that a hijacking would turn into what it did. Most hijackers did not want to die or else why hijack the plane? These guys were the first of their kind to knowingly go into this as martyrs which should show everyone how crazy these idiots and their religion are and were.

Everyone always goes to where the twin towers were, but me and my wife have been to Shanksville twice because my extended family live an hour away.

I recommend it if anyone is ever near Pittsburgh.

It still gives me goosebumps being there and how calm and quiet it is since it’s in the middle of a field. The new memorial is very nice.

During the credits some random guy a couple seats over asked me, “Did that really happen?” I could only ask what cave he had been living in.
