UNITED 93: Reviewed by MercatorNet and the Weekly Standard. I don't think I will watch it, although it sounds like an impressive film. Even now, it's too painful.

You should reconsider. The real-time approach employed by Greengrass ensures that the film does not linger on the most painful moments.

The truly difficult part of the movie, I found, is being confronted with the 'what would you do?' and the realization that this is a question we continue to face in our ongoing war against Islamic fundamentalism.

United 93 is not "entertainment" -- it's better to watch on a weeknight than on a fun night, for sure. But particularly for someone who spends as much time thinking about the big-picture problems of this war and the world as you do, you will regret missing the opportunity to join with a theater of strangers and witness again the mix of bravery and confusion that is the story of United 93.
Whether or not for the same reasons, I too am not ready. Maybe when on satellite PPV.
