Default World Trade Center memories, hollywood version.

Some one did a great job putting all together in one clip. Enjoy.

Why would anyone who lives in New York, where we could see the real thing, be impressed by Hollywood's interpretation? That's like someone going to Las Vegas, then coming back to NYC and gushing about their re-creation of our hometown.

The farther we get from 2011, the less truth will be exhibited in these new versions. I'll bet some studio is even working on a 3-D version. Perhaps even with some bottled stench released into the theaters.

Some of us like remembering the city that was. Images of the WTC are part of that.

Because it's not there anymore.

Because some people never saw it.

Because some of us want to see it again, and again, and again.

But we're not talking about reality; we're talking about some Hollywood producer's imagining about what happened, edited and condensed for public consumption. You'd rather go along with that than what you actually experienced?

I really don't understand your problem here. These are some clips of the WTC that are interesting to reflect on. I don't think anyone except you is worrying about their verisimilitude.

Obviously, you haven't seen the video. Why don't you WATCH it before you make comments on it?

I agree. I think it is nice to see it. What is the big deal. I also think the American public should be reminded of it even more.
