So I keep seeing the trailer for "World Trade Center." First of all: Oliver Stone shot bits in my hometown! Secondly, I think "World Trade Center" is a horrible name for this movie. Because I used to love this book called "The Little House" which was about, er, a little house. I used to read this book at my grandparents' house and I loved it. Ahem: "Once upon a time there was a Little House way out in the country. She was a pretty Little House and she was strong and well built." Oh yes. And the pretty Little House watches as the land around her shifts from a lovely country side into a bustling city, and she's neglected and she falls apart, and then (SPOILER ALERT) a nice lady rescues her and lugs The Little House back out to the countryside and The Little House is happy again. The book's totally from the POV of The Little House. So, in my head, "World Trade Center" must be from the POV of The World Trade Center.
In my head, of course, the World Trade Center's POV sounds a lot like that Will Forte character on SNL who says, "OH NO!"
Anyway. I'm just glad there aren't any Happy Meal tie-ins.
ANYWAY. So the trailer features this dramatic v/o that says "every generation has a defining moment - this was ours."
And, quite frankly, I can think of many more defining moments, thank you very much.
