I can not believe that this only has a rating of 2.6. This was a fun
documentary to watch. I had just seen this on AMC and I had a blast
watching this. I never knew there was so many disaster movies, not to
mention they have been around since the early nineteen-thirties. This
documentary tells you the dangers about being around the set of such
classic disaster movies such as In Old Chicago and the Towering Inferno
and even the Poseidon Adventure. There are a lot of interesting stories
behind the making of those films and more in this documentary.
Here is the basis of this documentary. It is pretty obvious. This
documentary tells you the story behind some of the most famous disaster
movies of all time. It tells you when disaster movies started, when
they became popular, their downfall, their comeback, another downfall,
and another comeback. It also tells about some of the most famous Irwin
Allen films. If you do not know, he is the king of disaster movies. It
tells how disaster movies used to be made, and the risks of making a
disaster movie, and the new CGI, where there is basically no risk.
Overall, this is a fun documentary that deserves a higher rating here
on IMDb. I mean, a 2.6? This is at least worth an eight. I am a huge
movie buff and I love to watch movies so if you are like me you will
definitely adore this documentary about the history about some of the
most infamous disaster movies. Some of the disaster movies in this were
flops, most were big successes, but overall they were disaster movies.
Recommended Titles: AFI.
