Welcome to Skating Buffalo, my blog about movies. I want to share my passion and meet other movie fans on this amazing blog journey. So "fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night."
I do enjoy a good train wreck - in movies. I would add The Cassandra Crossing to your list, since the entire movie is a build up to a big train wreck at the end (spoiler alert!) I've seen all of these movies except Unstoppable, and I liked all of them except Super 8.
Craig, I haven't seen The Cassandra Crossing...will check it out. Yeah, Super 8 wasn't top on my list, either.
Hey, I really like Super 8!The crazy thing is that the earlier examples were done with models and even real trains, whereas the more modern examples were mostly CGI. Blowing up a real train is way more impressive.What happened to Morgan and Diane?http://www.ruleofthedice.com/2015/05/how-role-playing-games-make-you-better.html
CD, Yes, blowing up real trains is impressive. I miss the old school way of doing things sometimes. Morgan and Diane was accidentally deleted by me. YOIKS!
My favorite is Buster Keaton in The General. Classic.(Just a few days after you posted this, Amtrak had a major train wreck. Cue the eerie music!)
Trudy, I first saw Buster Keaton films in a film class I took in college. He blew me away. I'm a fan. I hadn't heard about the train wreck. Strange indeed.
I love Buster Keaton. There is a place near me that shows silent movies while a gifted organist plays an antique Wurlitzer. So much fun to go there!
