Ah, I remember the heady days of 1999. You could see roughly two disaster films a week about giant comets heading towards the Earth and still have enough time for a fish supper on the way homeUr something.

It was about time too; the glory days of THE TOWERING INFERNO and THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE were a long time ago and the movie industry was in need of an adrenaline-shot of world-in-peril/people-screaming big screen entertainment.
