A combination of 9/11, The Towering Inferno, + Titanic.


The special effects were pretty kick ass, but as usual the people at the top of the food chain that caused the disaster got away scot free IMO. It would've been nice to see some of those elite ***holes getting tossed off the top of the skyscraper to their deaths:)

Don't forget the Poseidon Adventure, and Die Hard 1, being that it happened on Xmas.

You left out the Airport series. What with all 700 freaking characters we had to "care" about. Oh and Backdraft. They even had a part where the guy runs after the fire truck and hops in. lol after that I was expecting Kurt Russel to be running around the building with his coat open and no respirator saying cool sh*t every now and again. But oh well.

can't think of everything, but you're right.

I thought the exact same thing about "Backdraft"...right down to the "probie" who can't close his fireman's jacket/suit up correctly, and has to be helped--not to mention the "running after the fire truck and climbing in as it pulls away scene"
