  • Favorite Disaster Movies

    Why hasn't anyone written and produced a big budget Class 5 "Hurricane" movie focusing on the lives of a select group of people who decide to ride out the storm?

    Some favorites:

    Poseidon Adventure
    Poseidon (2006)
    Titantic
    The Day After Tomorrow
    San Francisco (1936) (1906 SF earthquake)

    Other disasters:

    Pluto Nash
    Ishstar
    Heaven's Gate

    How could Poseidon (2006) be one of your favorite disaster movies?

    This isn't the Howard Johnson's.

        White, you KNOW authorized pontificates on movies he's never seen. Why would it surprise you that one of his favorite films hasn't even made it to post-production yet?

          The Towering Inferno. How could you NOT love Paul Newman giving that classic line to McQueen: "Hey, are you here to fight me, or the fire?" LOL! Love that movie, and it takes place in my favorite city, to boot.

          Earthquake. Classic Heston, and watching the Capital Records building fall is fun.

          Posiden Adventure. With Hackman as a priest who looks ready to beat your head in, and the coolest special effects, it's just awesome.

          Irwin Allen, come back!!

            I only own three disaster movies on DVD ...

            The Towering Inferno ... really need to watch this again. Bought it because I loved it as a kid.

            Titanic ... say what you will. Amazing special effects and a couple brilliant moments.

            Showgirls ... someone had to say it.

              It's not even as if this is Authorized jumping the shark, because it's par for the course.

              Though this might signal a front runner for Authy's 2006 Oscar predictions.

                  I really liked "Alive". If you live in a cold climate don't rent it in the winter, you'll keep turning up the thermostat.

                    I'm not surprised. Just annoyed.

                      hey, by coincidence I was watching an episode of "Lost In Space" today; one of my favorite old shows.

                        SAN FRANCISCO - best earthquake ever put on film, makes EARTHQUAKE look like a crappy low budget flick.

                        I can't get the theme from THE TOWERING INFERNO out of my head - even though I saw it 30 years ago and can't remember a danged thing about the film.

                          White Squall is probably my favorite.

                          I also liked Deep Impact and Armageddon but I'm probably in the minority on these boards.

                            How could you say this? Have you thought this through??? If you let him rise from the cracks of moviemaker hell what's to stop Cecil B. De Mille from following him?

                              Maybe not a "big budget" nor "Class 5," but KEY LARGO had a hurricane.
