Loved this film, still do. It really captured the era back then. Harrowing at times, it doesn't pull it's punches. Well worth watching and you'll learn some history too. The soundtrack is top notch, I wore out two copies of it.

I never tire of seeing this film...based on what really happened. It's a nice balance between humour and drama and holds your interest throughout.
Pam Haessler wrote a comment about the movie The Towering Inferno
This film caused laws for fire safety to be passed. It's a tribute to firemen everywhere and has, for it's day, top notch effects and stunts. A top flight film in it's day. Some of it still makes me cringe and I've seen it a lot. Very heartfelt in some spots and gripping in others.

Irwin Allen at the top of his form. Don't see the remakes, see this one. Top notch cast, always something going on and when it came out, very successful and deservedly so. One of the scariest things is how Mr. Allen made the water a villain, like it had a life of it's own...always pursuing. It does show you hairstyles, music and fashion from the 70's though, so prepare for that!

Brilliant film, cannot say enough good about it. It really packs a punch, takes you "there". Two thumbs way up. A classic.
Pam Haessler wrote a comment about the movie The Perfect Storm
Superbly well made film, a tribute by cast and crew to the families and fishermen involved. Not a happy ending of course but you really get involved with the characters, they feel real not "scripted". Two thumbs solidly up. A tribute to the prices paid for the foods we eat without a thought.
Pam Haessler wrote a comment about the movie The Golden Compass
Biggest problem is that the kids act like adults not kids, and despite stellar effects, it bored me, couldn't get emotionally involved in it.
Pam Haessler wrote a comment about the movie The Brothers Grimm
Uneven film, but different. Not one I'd see repeatedly but worth a glance.
Pam Haessler wrote a comment about the movie King Kong
Disappointing in some aspects, particularly the giant robotic ape, but Rick Baker, now a special effects master, did the ape proud, providing real emotion in the ape suit. Liked the music.

Fabulous ahead-of-it's-time movie, great effects for the day, inspired so many modern filmmakers. The restored version has censored bits added back in...censored being natives chewed by Kong's giant head.
Pam Haessler wrote a comment about the movie 2010: Moby Dick
Good grief. Take out "evil" whale, plug in radioactive lizard, giant undersea worm...whatever. This in no way compares to the 1956 John Houston "Moby Dick" which is nearly Hitchc*ckian, great psychological depth to it.
