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.

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.

One that's been on again recently was Deepwater Horizon.
The effects are so realistic but just imagining what it must have been like to have actually been on the rig when it was happening doesn't bear thinking about.

We don't get many good disaster films these days. They often involve aliens and outer space.

If you like disaster movies try AFTERSHOCK its an empotional piledriver, is not from the American stable, but China with subtitles, a very human situation is used and puts the audience in the situatio of realisiing decisions are a tragic way to make a life.

I watch a lot of subtitled films but not only does the film have to be good but the subtitling has to be good too.

They ought to do a re-make with the topic of Aftershock after the Pandemic.
Ironic that it will also be a human situation, and realising the decisions (made by China not to reveal the novel coronavirus patient zero in November/December in 2019) are a tragic way to end over 2 million (and counting) lives globally.

I really like San Andreas! Just the right amount of cheese lol. I do love a good disaster movie though, and it's tricky trying to pick a favourite. 2012 is pretty good fun too, although perhaps over does the body count on screen. Oh I know, how about the Poseidon Adventure (Gene Hackman is great in that!). Too many lol
