Movies We Thought of on 9/11

Description: "It was like a movie" was probably one of the most commonly uttered expressions of disbelief that day and for several days afterwards. Weeks and months, too. Movies were, as Village Voice critic J. Hoberman later wrote, "the only possible analogy."

Armageddon (Criterion Collection) (1998)
Not Rated
  Two weeks after the event, The Onion returned with its classic post-9/11 issue, including the wonderful piece, "American Life Turns Into Bad Jerry Bruckheimer Movie". Basically, this is the one they meant.
Independence Day (1996)
  But they also mentioned this one. So did most of us. In fact, this one probably takes the cake. Besides the faceless invaders, who could keep from recalling the most vivid images yet of the destruction of all the symbolic stuff that made America America?
Passenger 57 (1992)
  Neil Young recorded "Let's Roll" as a defiant eulogy. But in the movies, the good guys live.
Die Hard (1988)
  You could list the whole series. But just a reminder: After 9/11, the Pentagon met with Hollywood folks, including Steven E. De Souza, screenwriter for the first two Die Hards, to ask what the terrorists might try to pull next.
America's Darkest Day: Pearl Harbor (1961)
Not Rated
  It was a rotten analogy, but it came all too easily. Oh, by the way: Not this one. The one produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
