Riverwalker’s Top Ten Disaster Movies

Here are my choices for the Top Ten Disaster Movies. Although many of you may not agree with all my choices, all these films are excellent movies and well worth watching when you have the time.

Top Ten Disaster Movies

1.) Twister (1996): An ex-married couple battles an F-5 tornado!

2.) Deep Impact (1998): An asteroid is going to destroy the whole world!

3.) Independence Day (1996) : Lots of fireworks in the ultimate alien invasion movie!

4.) Dante’s Peak (1997): A dormant volcano explodes with all of Nature’s fury!

5.) Outbreak (1995): A monkey gets loose and spreads a deadly killer virus!

6.) Earthquake (1974): Charlton Heston classic of survival after a deadly earthquake!

7.) Volcano (1997): Tommy Lee Jones stops the lava before it devastates everything in its path!

8.) Armageddon (1998): Bruce Willis and his roughnecks save the world from a deadly asteroid!

9.) The Towering Inferno (1974): Newman and McQueen battle the ultimate high rise fire!

10.) The Poseidon Adventure (1972): The leader of McHale’s Navy comes to the rescue at sea!

CAUTION: These films should NOT be considered survival training videos.

Got popcorn?

Staying above the water line!

You forgot "Panic in the Year Zero".

I got that in a set with "The Last Man on Earth".

Both are fun for different reasons.

I like The Day After Tomorrow, about the teenage kid stuck in New York when the climate does a drastic change.
The rest you mentioned are great classics! There is nothing like a disaster flick to make you think. lol

Hey, they have been playing several of these on cable just recently! How cool is that?

Good choices!

"The Day After" blows most of these movies away with its documentary style. It's not a high-budget flick, but it enlisted the help of a lot of volunteers from a town out in the midwest. They did a very good job describing the aftermath of a nuclear attack.

No happy/feel good ending with that one.

Brass said...

Definitely not. The movie, while good, is an emotional ordeal to watch, but worth it.
