How would you rank the disaster movies Heston made in his career? Rank them beginning with the best and work your way down to the one you like the least.

To help you remember, these are the disaster movies Heston made:

Skyjacked
Airport 1975
Earthquake
Two-Minute Warning
Gray Lady Down

1. Earthquake - the supporting cast helped; Kennedy was great, Gortner as a psycho, ultra-cute Victoria Principal, even Walter Matthau as a drunk; Heston had good support here.
Also - the ending with Heston (won't give it away just in case, but... shocking & memorable) :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

2. Airport 1975 - Heston does what he does best, saves a bunch of people :applause: :applause: :applause:

3. Two-Minute Warning - offbeat pairing of Heston with Cassavetes :applause: :applause:

4. Skyjacked - sort of just a warm-up for Airport 1975, but Brolin's psycho was an interesting challenge for Heston's hero :applause: :applause:

5. Gray Lady Down - another offbeat pairing, this time with Carradine, though it's mostly forgettable;
Heston was kind of unusual here with his beard :applause:

1. Airport '75
2. Earthquake
3. Two-Minute Warning
4. Gray Lady Down
5. Skyjacked
6, Crash Landing

All quite watchable, but the first two stand out for me because, as a 10 year old, these were my first Heston movies that I recall seeing in the theatre and I was a bit in awe of his screen presence. Still watch those two about once a year and relive the great memories of that time period.
