不输给2012的十大经典灾难片

2010-07-23 14:03:44

10. "Twister"

There are going to be people who scoff at my choice of "Twister" but this is one of those movies that when it's on cable, I always end up watching. Not the best acting ever in a film, but the tornado action is pretty darn fun.

也许很多人会对《龙卷风》不屑一顾,毕竟表演一般特效也很陈旧了。但是每次电视台放还是会忍不住看……

9. "War of the Worlds"

My only beef with Steven Spielberg's 2005 take on the classic HG Wells story has to do with the ending. Otherwise, Spielberg weaves an entertaining tale about aliens and how one family faces the invasion.

《世界大战》是斯皮尔伯格改编自科幻大师HG Wells的作品,汤姆·克鲁斯的领衔和初出茅庐的达科塔·范宁都令人印象深刻。

8. "Children of Men"

Alfonso Cuaron directs Clive Owen in this futuristic thriller in which humankind is facing extinction because women have become infertile. True edge of your seat action, incredible cinematography, and Owen's performance make this one a must-see.

《人类之子》说的是人类面临绝种,全世界只剩一位孕妇的状况,紧张的动作戏,出色的摄影,以及克里夫·欧文的表演绝对会让你觉得很值。

7. "Deep Impact"

"Deep Impact" was one of two movies released in 1998 in which our planet's threatened by a meteor. Mimi Leder's "Deep Impact" battled it out with Michael Bay's "Armageddon" (you know, the one with Ben Affleck running animal crackers across Liv Tyler) and although Bay's film had a bigger budget and brought in more money, Leder actually made the better movie.

1998年《深度撞击》打败了另一部彗星撞地球的灾难片《绝世天劫》,虽说后者花的钱也多赚的钱也多,但口碑上还是《深度撞击》深入人心。

6. "Outbreak"

Remember when Cuba Gooding Jr chose good roles? This was one of his better films. "Outbreak" is a creepy film about the spread of the 'Motaba' virus with Dustin Hoffman being the go-to guy who must save everyone on the planet. And it's all because of one renegade monkey...

《恐怖地带》给人带来的毛骨悚然的感觉至今让人印象深刻,一只猴子引发的病毒急速扩散,达斯汀·霍夫曼奔赴前线拯救全人类。

5. "The Poseidon Adventure"

We're talking about the original 1972 movie - not Wolfgang Petersen's 2006 remake. 5 Academy Award winners star in this tale of a cruise ship going down on New Year's Eve. The water scenes still look spectacular and many of the cast members did their own stunts in order to make things look realistic.

不是2006年的翻拍,说的是1972年原汁原味的《海神号遇难记》。这艘被诅咒的船只,载着5大奥斯卡影帝影后,在除夕夜壮烈沉没。水漫金山的场面至今看来依然扣人心弦。

4. "Earthquake"

Being a Southern California native, the threat of an earthquake is always lingering in the back of my mind. "Earthquake" the movie brings that fear to life - although the acting's pretty campy and the effects are so outdated they're laughable.

同样是1974年的《大地震》震撼人心,尤其对于地震频发地区的人们来说更是感同身受。但是特效太老土了,现在看起来都会觉得好笑。

3. "Independence Day"

"Independence Day" helped Will Smith become one of the most recognizable - and bankable - actors in Hollywood. Directed by Roland Emmerich, a filmmaker who knows a thing or two about big budget epics ("The Day After Tomorrow," "Godzilla"), "Independence Day" finds the Earth under attack by aliens bent on killing off humans. Smith plays a fighter pilot who has to save the day with the help of Bill Pullman as U.S. President Whitmore and an annoying scientist played by Jeff Goldblum.

《独立日》是威尔·史密斯的成名作,也是他发家致富的重要作品。导演Roland Emmerich是灾难片的老手了,《后天》和《哥斯拉》都是出自他的手笔。《独立日》讲的是地球被外星人攻击,人类受到外星人威胁。威尔·史密斯扮演的战斗机飞行员在美国总统和科学家的帮助下拯救了全世界。

2. "The Towering Inferno"

The 1974 effects don't hold up but the story does. Directed by John Guillermin and starring Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, and William Holden, "The Towering Inferno" finds its victims trapped in a high rise building on fire (thus the film's title) and the audience is kept on the edge of their seats never knowing who amongst the star-studded cast is going to buy the farm next.

《火烧摩天楼》是1974年的老片子了,当年的特效别指望啥了,不过故事还是相当出彩,保罗·纽曼等人的演绎也很出色。故事讲的就是一栋摩天大楼着了火,楼里人们无处逃生。观众们都看得神经紧张,不知道下一个轮到谁挂掉。

1.Titanic

The biggest blockbuster of all time tops my list of the best disaster movies not only because of its killer special effects, but also its top-notch acting and decent storyline. Girls went gaagaa over Leonardo DiCaprio as the handsome, lower-class artist who falls for Kate Winslet's character, catapulting the actor onto the A-list where he remains today.

《泰坦尼克号》无疑是最具划时代意义的灾难片。真实事件的改编使之更具亲和力,突破的特效令人乍舌,优美的叙事和优秀的演员,一举让小生莱昂纳多成为少女杀手,并跻身好莱坞大牌,成为今日的一线明星。
