    Superman Returns featured a ship (well, rather large yacht) sinking in a fairly stunning sequence. It even breaks in half!!

    I think that the two Poseidon Adventure remakes belong at about #50 and #51. Britannic is pretty awful. Titanic 96 belongs lower, it's a Walmart-style depiction of the disaster. Where is Titanic 53 or Titanic 43? I notice that all of the movies on this list are 1972 or later. Where is The Last Voyage?

    I mean...Titanic: The Animated Movie?!

    The list is in chronological order. I only put the movies I have. I don't know why people hate the Poseidon remakes, Britannic, Titanic 1996, and Titanic: The Animated Movie. I go by the CGI of the ships sinking. Please don't judge a movie before you see how the sinking sequences are. I thought the CGI shots of the ships' final plunges were awesome. I haven't seen Titanic 53, Titanic 43, and The Last Voyage. Maybe I'll add them to the list later after I've seen them.

    Mark, I added my last name. I hope you like the list. It's in chronological order. I used the movies I have. I noticed some people hate movies. Before you comment on the list, note that I go by the CGI of the ships sinking to critique the greatest shipwreck movies of all time. I would appreciate it if you didn't judge a movie before you've seen how the sinking sequences are. I think the CGI shots of the ships' final plunges are awesome. I'm not saying you're a movie hater, I'm just preparing you for a better reply than Jeremy's, which is full of hate.

    >>I would appreciate it if you didn't judge a movie before you've seen how the sinking sequences are. <<

    There's a lot more to a movie and whether or not it can be considered "good" then just the sinking sequences. Cameron's "Titanic" has a pretty realistic and horrifying sinking sequence but as to whether or not the rest of the flick was worth the price of admission...well, that's a matter of some very sharply divided opinion.

    Dan, this is a debating forum for adults and when we post our opinions we expect some disagreement and we generally get it! You surely don't really consider Jeremy's reply to be "full of hate" just because he doesn't share your taste in films? He's entitled to his opinions, just as you are to yours. Relax and enjoy the discussions.

    Where am I "full of hate"? That's actually pretty rude to say, given that I'm pointing out glaring omissions in your list and, since the thread is titled "Top Shipwreck Movies", that implies that you're taking the movie as a whole. I never said anything hateful, only expressed the fact that you omitted several films that should have been on there before others.

    Perhaps a better thread title would be "Top Sinking Sequences"?

    1. Bob and Jeremy, please re-read Dan's message---especially the fifth sentence and the last--- with the thought in mind that "full of hate" means "hate of (at least certain) movies" rather than "hate of Dan."

    2. Dan, please be more careful with your choice of words. Even if you meant what I think you meant (as reflected in paragraph 1) your message could have been more clearly and less inflammatorily worded.
