It’s double trouble as an airplane crashes in shark infested waters in upcoming Deep Water.
It starts with a cyclone and ends with cannibalism and shark attacks. Oh, and the dog dies!
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 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 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.
The final of the four Airport movies is a disappointing end to an entertaining franchise.
The third entry in the Airport series is in some aspects the quintessential disaster movie.
Airport 1975 is the first of three sequels to the very successful Airport, and offers more catastrophic bang for your bucks.
Burt Lancaster and Dean Martin headline Airport, the film that is credited with starting the disaster movie wave of the 1970’s.
