Disaster Movies @ Filmbug (299 words)
Disaster movies are nearly as old as film itself.
Science-fiction movies such as When Worlds Collide routinely used disasters as plot elements in the 1950s and early 1960s.
The heyday of disaster movies began in 1970, however, when the success of Airport generated a flood of "all-star-cast-in-peril" stories.
St. James Encyclopedia of Pop Culture: Disaster Movies (915 words)
It is an important part of disaster movies that in them heroic acts are performed by unlikely heroes--by people with psychological wounds, with limited experience of the things they are asked to do, and in situations where the odds against success seem impossibly high.
Disasters featured in disaster movies can be divided into three main types: natural disasters, disasters caused by technology failing or being accidentally damaged, and disasters caused by terrorism or by the recklessness of an individual or agency.
Although disasters have featured in movies from the beginning of the twentieth century, films in which the disaster is the reason for making and watching the film did not become common until the 1950s when alien invasion and monster movies were popular.
