Disaster Flicks

By Patrick Mondout

With the Three Mile Island, Watergate, and worst aircraft accident of all time, it is not surprising that the Super70s produced some of the biggest disaster films this side of Titanic. No decade brought more disasters to the silver screen than the Super70s. Here is our list of what we believe are the 20 best disaster films of the Super70s:

  1. The Poseidon Adventure (1972)

  2. Airport (1970)

  3. The Towering Inferno (1974)

  4. Two Minute Warning (1976)

  5. Juggernaut (1974)

  6. Airport 1975 (1974)

  7. The Cassandra Crossing (1977)

  8. Airport '77 (1977)

  9. Meteor (1979)

  10. Earthquake (1974)

  11. The Medusa Touch (1978)

  12. The Hindenburg (1975)

  13. Concorde Airport '79 (1979)

  14. Rollercoaster (1977)

  15. Avalanche (1978)

  16. Survive! (1976)

  17. Hurricane (1979)

  18. Beyond the Poseidon Adventure (1979)

  19. Gray Lady Down (1978)

  20. The Swarm (1978)

These movies took themselves way too seriously which left them open to parodies. Airplane! was without a doubt the best disaster-film parody, but there was also The Big Bus.

"Shouldn't you add "The China Syndrome" to your list of "Disaster Flicks" as this was released only a few weeks before the Three Mile Island disaster. Admittedly, no all-star cast gets incinerated. [Editor's note: It's always a tough call as to whether a thriller is just a thriller or a disaster film. Had an all-star cast of tourists been trapped in the reactor when it overheated, you can bet I would have added it to the list. ;) ]"
