I prefer the original 1972 film to the 2006 remake. This is where I discovered and fell in love with Gene HackmanThe original 1972 film, the 2006 remake, or the 2005 TV miniseries?
And what do you think of the sequel to the original 72 film, 1979's Beyond the Poseidon Adventure?
Oh I DO vaguely remember this. Maybe I have watched it before and it was so bad I erased it from my memoryIt was terrible. Same capsized ship and something about Telly Savalas and his baddie comrades looking for some hidden plutonium on board or something like that.
No, its the same ship and some fortune hunters go aboard her right the original ones left. It wasn't very good IMHO.What do you think of the 1979 sequel? I didn’t even know there had been a sequel? Is this about another disaster on another ship?
It is very true that the mood you are in will affect how you feel about a movie. I don’t like a couple of movies just because I saw them at a bad time etc.Interesting comments. I prefer the original movie because I saw it when it came out and I've never seen the others. However my compelling reason for liking the original is separate from the actual merits of the movie. At the time it came out I was working in a position that required long hours and put me under a great deal of stress. I had a rare opportunity to take a break, to relax in the calm solitude of a theater and just forget about my workload for a couple of hours. It left me with a refreshed feeling and a pleasant memory that remains to this day.
