    "Zero Dark Thirty was amazing! The manhunt for Binladen is a touchy subject but the movie really did it justice. I'm sure this has a lot of artistic license but hey, it totally works!"

    "Die Hard's version of "terrorism" is of the action movie variety. Lots of explosions and kidnapping. Not a bad thing of course since popcorn action doesn't get better than Die Hard!"

    "Loved Air Force One! I have a very faint heart so terrorist plots don't really sit well with me but Air Force One didn't really bother me that much because it was made of pure win! "

    "I've always wondered what was happening during the 9/11 plane crashes. When I watched this movie, I cried so hard because I had no idea that the people on board really tried to fight back. I've regained faith in humanity!"

    "What's great about watching movies centering on terrorism is that there are sooo many perspectives and stories that you can explore. WTC is a movie about the efforts of police men during the 9/11 event. Seeing the stories of these brave men really inspired me!"
