Cyclone (1978)

It starts with a cyclone and ends with cannibalism and shark attacks. Oh, and the dog dies!

Knowing (2009)

I’m not sure that I really consider Knowing to be a proper disaster movie, but since it’s been discussed as such by several reviewers I guess I ought to mention it nevertheless. Director Alex Proyas does serve up a couple of interesting disaster scenes, but the whole affair is so glum it almost turns into self-parody.

Snakes on a Plane (2006)

Snakes on a Plane was massively hyped before its arrival, mainly due to its funny title. Having finally seen it, I’m kind of glad that I didn’t spend a bunch of money on seeing it in the cinema, since the actual movie is nowhere nere as fun as it ought to be.

Destination: Infestation (2007)

Destination: Infestation is a Canadian made-for-TV ripoff of Snakes on a Plane, but with ants. It’s stupid. It’s crap. It’s fun if you’re drunk or just in the mood for something ridiculous.

Airport 1975 (1974)

Airport 1975 is the first of three sequels to the very successful Airport, and offers more catastrophic bang for your bucks.

Airport (1970)

Burt Lancaster and Dean Martin headline Airport, the film that is credited with starting the disaster movie wave of the 1970’s.
