Just watched Dante's Peak which wasn't bad but wouldn't be in my top 5.

Off the top of my head I think my favourites are:
The Towering Inferno

Towering Inferno was great.

Day After Tomorrow was good.

Armegeddon was great. Much better than the other asteroid film that came out about the same time. Can't remember what it was called though.

Towering |nferno, probably because I saw it on holiday at the cinema when I was about 10 and it seemed AMAZING!!

I prefer epidemics disaster movies - "the cassandra crossing" style

Towering Inferno - Classic!

The day after tomorrow and Titanic - love em both!

Deep Imapct (far better than armageddon (IMHO)

Independance day

towering inferno also v. good.

The Poseidin adventure - now that's a classic.

I like Space Cowboys (I think it just about qualifies as a disaster movie)

I really love those 'disaster' documentaries about future mega-tsunamis and super-volcanos.

I hated Titanic

I quite like the one with Dustin Hoffman and the infected monkeys, it's called Outbreak I think

I loved Cassandra crossing!!!

francagoestohollywood Thu 31-Jul-08 16:50:05

The poseidon adventure and Avalanche, with rock hudson.

bobblehat Thu 31-Jul-08 16:52:38

Dunno if tougue in cheek ones count, but Airplane is a classic

TheMagnificent7 Thu 31-Jul-08 22:11:06

Maybe not in this order but :

Independence Day
Towering Inferno
Poseidon Adventure (and please, I mean the original)

Armageddon never fails to make me cry

Towering Inferno definitely

Titanic is just a rip off of A Night to Remember, except for the fetus and Kate bits. There are entire sequences which are directly copied, even the old people on the bed bit.

most hilarious is the really old titanic film 'atlantic' very slow moving but hilarious

MingMingtheWonderPet Thu 31-Jul-08 22:15:00

Independence day
Towering inferno
Poseiden Adventure

Did not like the recent War of the Worlds - terrible

Quite liked 'I am Legend' - does that count?

The Core (brilliant film!!)
Day after Tomorrow.

Did anybody see the Top 50 disaster films that was on the other week on Sky? Can you guess what was number one?

Forgot about Twister - Loved that.

I am Legend is a remake of the Omega Man with Charlton Heston, but is much much closer to the book I Am Legend which is superb

I think I'd go for Towering Inferno as the Number 1

TheMagnificent7 Thu 31-Jul-08 22:44:08

Califrau, I think that's a whole different movie grin
