The Retrospectives Begin

As we get closer to the fifth anniversary of 9/11, expect to see more retrospectives about the event and its aftermath. Yesterday we received the DVD for United 93, the special two-disc edition, in the mail. Because we had seen it before and I wanted to catch the Pittsburgh game, we decided to watch the movie itself over the weekend. However, we did watch the documentary on the bonus disk, "Chasing Planes", which retells the efforts made by air traffic controllers and the military to defend the nation from a threat none of them had ever imagined. It uses clips from the movie (mostly where the principals played themselves), but also features fascinating and chilling interviews with the controllers and pilots. It's excellent, well worth the small additional cost of the two-disk edition.

Also, I'd like to remind people that the Minnesota premiere of Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against The West comes this evening at the Oak Street Cinema comes this evening. It will play twice a night through the 15th. I reviewed the film on August 30th, and I highly recommend it, especially for those who may not grasp the hatred that fuels islamist terrorism. It's well produced and a good reminder of what we face in this conflict.
