    Your thoughts on this movie.....

    At the opening party of a colossal, but poorly constructed, office building, a massive fire breaks out that threatens to destroy the tower and everyone in it.

    Irwin Allen was "the master of disaster"!

    Enjoyable, but somewhat dated...

    And is it just me, or is your poster heavily cropped?

    Your're right. That was a replacement I did today. The original I posted was too big, wallpaper size.

    That will teach me to make edits, half awake, after only one sip of morning coffee.

    Will sort that out. :emoji_alien:

    And yes, the film is dated somewhat. But lovely to see all those old stars.

    I spotted O.J. Simpson.

    Whatever happened to him?

    Honestly, I neither care nor believe that's even a consideration in this case. Those movies represent an era in filmmaking that will not ever be repeated. You knew there would be lots of "disaster", things would go boom and all of it would take place in sets filled with some of Hollywood's finest dressed like the supermodels of the era that they were!

    All hail to IA, he was one of a kind.

    The ultimate disaster film of the 1970s is all about the special effects. I've always regarded STAR WARS and George Lucas as being responsible for the invention of 'blockbuster' films. But maybe this is (it was made three years before).
