Episode 229 – The Poseidon Adventure (1972)

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale
A tale of mighty ship
That got hit by a massive wave and over it did flip
Gene Hackman was the preacher man
And Bognine was a cop
Just how could they escape that ship
When the bottom was the top?
The bottom was the top.
The stars, they started dying off
Which ones, we shall reveal,
So, Shelly Winters swam real far
And Linda climbed in heels.
Yes, how’d she climb in heels?
So, join “Poseidon Adventure,”
An Irwin Allen treat.
With Max and Mike and Bumpy,
Our crew is now complete.
Here on Max, Mike; Movies Isle!

(Hey, we could have an isle; you don’t know!)

Poll question: Do you like your disaster porn intimate (one vehicle/building) or gigantic/planetary?

  1. I not only saw this in the cinema but I read the book. I also read both books the Towering Inferno was based on.

    Normally I want over the top destruction in my disaster films but not long ago I watched the film Meloncholia which was cantered on a small rich family on their estate as a roe planet almost misses the earth and I really liked limited point of view, we don’t see cities destroyed or any action scenes just reaction from a small group. I don’t think many other people liked it but it was a nice change of pace for a disaster movie for me.
