My Favourite Things: DISASTER MOVIES!!!!!

Over the weekend I finally got to see the movie, 2012. Got the dvd from my library as I'm too stingy to shell out mega bucks to visit the cinema. But that got me to thinking how many other disaster movies are there.

I've seen many, and it's definitely my favourite genre, and anytime there's been one on tv I've watched, although I'm not too sure that Zombie movies come into the category but I saw I AM LEGEND not too long ago and it freaked the shit out of me.

But I watched 2012 on Sunday and LOVED IT!!!!!

I LOVE DISASTER MOVIES.

DAY AFTER TOMORROW, ARMEGEDDON, ASTEROID, DEEP IMPACT etc, etc, etc.

Anytime something gets blown up - INDEPENDANCE DAY, demolished, washed away, tipped over - POSEIDON, TITANIC, I'm there.

The special effects astound me and that's the only reason I watch these movies. For the special effects.

I loved the effects in 2012 so much I'm watching it again before taking it back.

I HAVE GOT TO SEE IT AGAIN!!

So that got me to thinking is there a list of disaster flicks?

So I googled, and found a wikipedia page, there's heaps more but that would make this post too long. So tell me how many you've seen from the list below. I've seen heaps.

  1. I'm not a fan of disaster movies. Especially when there's a lot of water.. movies with water I don't like.

    I don't know why that is.

    2012 was okay, but not great. I thought it would have made a better series because they didn't go into the science and the technical stuff enough for me.

    I was like "Why is this happening? Oh.. doesn't matter, stuffs blowing up now"

  2. Scoman - lol, I was confused for the first ten minutes of 2012 because they kept jumping forward in time showing different people. They could have done the beginning a bit better, it took too long to figure it out.
