Not so much your favorite movie but favorite moments from these crazy films. 



Twister had amazing casting.  Philip Seymour Hoffman as Dusty

When the Grandmother jumps into the lake of acid in Dantes Peak

Great Soundtrack on Perfect Storm

2012 makes it seem like LA and Yellowstone are a couple hour drive apart

Love Perfect Storm, and Armaggedon (please, spelling doesn't count!) is one of my all-time fav's.

I've caught a little bit of it.  Pretty funny. 

Lake Placid is great too.  Betty White feeds a giant crocodile in a Maine lake.

How about The Disaster Artist that is being released this week.  Can't believe they actually made a movie about the making of The Room.  Do people that live outside of LA who haven't seen the giant billboard for The Room all of their lives even know about this movie?

I'm excited for it! Never seen The Room in full... but I've seen clips of it, and the trailers for this movie look promising.

I'll have to find a way to watch the original beforehand.

I just saw it.   Hilarious.   (I had never scene The Room.  You get a good taste with side by side clips in the credit)

I watched The Room through my Net Flix DVD membership (you can get ANYTHING that way), otherwise I haven't seen it anywhere else.  I know in LA the film was well known for 15 years of its midnight screenings in a rundown theater.
I mean the film is bad, but there's a lot of bad films out there (I've made a few myself), but i think the reason this one became a cult classic is because the creator paid for a giant billboard for years.  Must be nice to have deep pockets.
Looking forward to seeing The Disaster Artist.

This is a great genre of movies.  I like "Independence Day", "Armageddon", "Signs", "Jaws", and "Twister". ...  if you can count aliens as a disaster, which I guess you can if they're the bad-ass variety of alien.  Joaquin Phoenix and Mel Gibson were both very good in "Signs".  I actually thought that M. Night Shyamalan was going to be a legendary director, but he seems to have fizzled out.
