Crop And Save
I am perfectly open to supporting my fellow filmmakers whenever possible. I believe in collaboration rather than competition.
Now, I have eclectic tastes, but what I value most in these stories is a sense of humanity and originality. I mostly lean towards the darker, and less fantastical.
Note: Many films you would like to be on here may not be on here. The order may not be the way you want it to be. But with the magic of IMDb, you can go make your own list, so don't have a tantrum.
Thanks for reading!
Sure, he abandoned logic often--but his films' intentions are established immediately and fulfilled exactly as quickly.
These are, in my opinion, the top ten films created by the Master of Suspense.
Half of the movie is needless, while the rest delivers your need for disaster.
To the point, while on a binge of disaster films, it occurred to me that Earthquake quite simply had no story other than the disaster itself.
The first half refuses to engage, with characters that undergo a dull drama. I am not impatient--in fact, I don't mind the wait in The Towering Inferno, which some may find tedious.
However, once all the pieces are put into place for the big one in this film, you get eight solid minutes of destruction. The second half, including aftermath, gives you what you wanted from a movie called Earthquake, even with some dated effects. You still get that 70's oomph.
It's not The Poseidon Adventure by a long shot, but for those seeking destruction, this delivers the goods, and certainly better than others of the genre such as Airport and its sequels. This film is underrated here on IMDb.
In conclusion, if I could give Earthquake a 6.5, I would; but I like to round up. Thanks for reading, and remember; it's all IMO.
