Topic: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

Pretty easy, what are some of your favourite natural disaster movies?

I think it's up there for horror with me because there's that sinister thought that it could actually happen.

Certainly not as far fetched as some horror movies so what's everyone's favourites? Top 5? Top 10? or just general movies you love in this bracket?

I cannot think of a lot right now but Outbreak and Children of Men are two major favourites. COM because it really was gritty and depressing but it did give some faint hope and Outbreak mostly because of the stand out performances.

Go over the top, think outside the box but just have a good time.

Now to all HMers, you favourites and why? Have fun! wink

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

Just watch 2012 thought it was a lot of fun. silly over the top yes but fun just the same.

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

Dante's Peak is one of my favorites. The Day After Tomorrow wasn't bad either.

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

I'm torn between Ice, 10.5, The Day After Tomorrow, and Twister.  They all have their fun quirrks and great quotable lines.

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

Twister is another really good one.

Watched 2012 yesterday and it was pretty fun. 8 out of 10 rating I'd give it. smile

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

^ I haven't seen 2012 yet but I love cheesy disaster films, hell I love Armageddon and Deep Impact, so I'd probably love it big_smile

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

Oh, man could 2012 be any longer.....
or longer.....
or longer......

I think you see my point. 

"Cow."   "Another cow."  "Actually, I think that's the same cow."

Yea, I think you'll like it. The ending is one that I didn't care for, but all in all it's a fun, over the top, disaster film. There are several times where the characters are just this close to dying, and that I think is what makes it so suspenseful at times. Anyway, when you see the film, I hope you enjoy it! smile

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

Now that looks cool! big_smile

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

So my complete list, even though it's extremely small, is this:
Twister
The Day After Tomorrow
2012
Dante's Peak (my favorite)

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

1970s- The Towering Inferno!

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

Forgot Armeggedon.  Liked it in spite of myself.  The old classics (Earthquake, Meteor, Towering Inferno, Posiedon) were also great fun with A-list actors.  But you have to separate them due to the tech advances in the past 20+ years.

Re: Favourite Natural Disaster Movies?

After seeing the San Fran (GG) bridge, I'm reminded of (a non-disaster movie per se) MegaShark vs. SuperOctopus, or whatever the hell it was called.  SyFy movie from about 6 months ago where the super shark bites the GG bridge in half.  It could only have been better if killer tomatoes were balanced on its nose while it was doing it!
