I am a huge disaster movie fan. My all time favourite is Irwin Allen's Towering Inferno. What's your favourite, and why ?

I think Towering Inferno was the first disaster movie I watched. Didn’t it have a glass lift on the outside of the building? A revelation at the time.
Titanic does it for me. I’ve watched it at least three times and I know the ending but still enjoy it. Kate Winslet helps of course.

Templar2013 , I much prefer the older black and white Titanic films. I didnt like the modern version at all.

Ive seen the special effects that Irwin Allen and crew developed for Towering Inferno, the building with the outside lift was a miniature. The actual lift was real when it was close up, but it was only 20 feet off the ground.

One unfortunately remembers the last version of The Titanic - the one with Mr De Caprio in the lead role. Not only a disaster movie but a disastrous film. So a complete concept, if you will.

Not too many good disaster films in black and white although I do enjoy black and white films. The oldest disaster movie I can remember is The Last Days of Pompeii filmed over 50 years ago I think.

Without a doubt the Hindenburg. Interesting and horrific.

A name for a new disaster film could be CV-19.... it has a certain ring about it.

There are a few films out at the moment along similar lines of a virus seeming unstoppable.

On the Beach is a favourite of mine and must be one of the oldest disaster movies.

On the beach was an oldie. I think the first disaster movie was a short silent film named Fire in 1901.
