Hopefully this is the start of some sanity and calmness returning to the Entertainment Industry after these horrible occurrences. I was beginning to fear that things were going to get so out of hand, that next they would start trimming and cutting up more films.
King Kong (1976) For example. The movie would just not be the same without Kong's final moments atop the WTC towers. Digital technology is a wonderful thing, but unless its used just for restoring a film to its original glory, hands off.
Yes, 9/11/01 was a tragic day for the entire world, but by removing the WTC towers from films, we are simply trying to erase the pain. And chopping up movies, and TV shows, is not the way to do it. In fact if you look at rental patterns, rentals of terrorist themed films went up, many finding them a relief of not being able to see the people responsible get what they deserve.
Ok, sorry for ranting so much on my first post, just felt I needed to say my peace before I start talking about more lighthearted topics.
MTFBWY and HH!!
