My Most Memorable Movie For 2006

First off i watched lots of movies last year, no thanks to my DVD player. I've always been a huge fan of movies, but you know, these i hardly have time to relieve myself, let alone go to the cinema (and look for parking, queue for a ticket, wait for the show to start, sit through inane ads, etc)

The other day i was wondering to myself which of the many movies stuck in my mind the most, but soon i realized that picking an ultimate list would be difficult, so i just picked the first one that came to mind, which would make it the most memorable.

Ready or not, here goes:

Nope, it's not a major summer blockbuster, not the most talked about remake, or any of those difficult to understand dramas that win lots of awards.

It's very different documentary-style movie about the 4th plane that was hijacked along with the 2 that hit the World Trade Center in New York and the one that crashed into the Pentagon in Washington.

4 terrorists hijack United flight 93, and carry out a suicide mission. It all starts innocently, like any other morning in America. As the chaos start to unravel, more and more people get involve - the air traffic controllers, the military, the control tower people, and lots of people who are just too complacent to do anything before it was too late.

"A hijack? When was the last time THAT happened?"

That line was mentioned twice, and show the unpreparedness of the nation who prides itself as the greatest on earth.

The director, Paul Greengrass shoots a stunning movie. He gives no opinions, no solutions, no hearsay, and none of the usual Hollywood crap we've come to expect.

There are no stars in this movies, witty dialogue, no happy endings, no heroes. Actually, there are heroes, it's just the everyday man. The brave passengers staged a daring fightback, but sadly, as history would note, it was all in vain.

It's a disturbing movie. it might make you sick, it might make you fear to fly. But it's the truth.

Watch it.


For those who want a complete (more or less) list of movies from last year, you can check out IMDB or this page by the director Kevin Smith.
