Flight 93 Movie Tonight
John Miller reviews it in NRO
:As soon as the passengers resolved to fight back, however, the movie gained a second wind. When the terrorists weren't looking, the Americans filled coffee pots with scalding water and armed themselves with unopened cans of pop (those things must hurt if they bean people in the head). One of them grabbed a fire extinguisher. Another carried a seat cushion like a shield. They turned a beverage cart into a battering ram. My wife commented that they were like little boys who dressed up as knights and used their imaginations to turn mundane objects into weapons of war.
And like knights on white horses, they wound up saving the day, or at least a portion of it. They delivered us from even more evil.
Sounds worth watching! On A&E; check your local listings.

.Racing to the air with movies based on news events is nothing new, but one might have thought the magnitude and enormity of 9/11 would have made it somehow sacrosanct, untouchable, not to be defiled by the polished ploys and slick gimmicks of professional writers, directors, producers and actors.
But of course all major events eventually become part of pop culture; Pearl Harbor and D-Day, two similar events with major repercussions, have been dramatized many times.
