Stone's World Trade Center Getting Bigtime Kudos

Cal Thomas:

I have a long list of favorite patriotic movies, including "Victory at Sea," "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and "Sands of Iwo Jima," but Oliver Stone's "World Trade Center" is right up there with the best of them. It is one of the greatest pro-American, pro-family, pro-faith, pro-male, flag-waving, God Bless America films you will ever see.

What? Oliver Stone, who hangs out with and praises Fidel Castro? Oliver Stone, who indulges in conspiracy theories and is a dues-paying member of the Hollywood left? Yes, THAT Oliver Stone.

Kathryn J. Lopez:

Oliver Stone, who served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam, has put together a beautiful tribute to John McLoughlin and Will Jimeno, to every single person who ran toward danger to save others, and to every American who protects and defends Americans today. So move over, Superman. These guys aren’t cartoon superheroes, they’re even better — they’re heroes who are real. McLoughlin and Jimeno, as portrayed and in person, are regular guys, with regular families — good, all-American people who were called to do something selfless and answered that call. It’s important for us to talk about them and the good they do — and to be grateful for everyone who sprints toward danger to save one of the rest of us.

In my profession I have worked with many of the same kind of individuals. They are truely heroes, like no other.

That is why it made me angry when I heard that some of the nuts at LC forum were planning to not only protest at the openings, but were also gonna spam the movies forum, if one came about, until it was forced to shut down.

Like hey man, I mean I could show that guy a thing about making a movie.

I mean, I got editing software, and then next thing you know I was a film maker.

I still get confused between fiction and non-fiction, but that's not important - This is going to be a good year for the truth.

Like, hey man I mean if they make popcorn there will be exlosions - no explosives but explosions.
