GREENLIGHT #46: Poseidon (with "Lifeboat" and "The Towering Inferno")

Ann and Les wholeheartedly agree that Poseidon (2006) is a disaster movie. It's got two movie stars who embarass themselves and a bunch of up-and-comers who don't distinguish themselves. But, of course, nobody had anything to work with because it's a movie without a story. And there was no reason to remake the wonderful original. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends Alfred Hitchcock's smaller and very well-crafted boat disaster film Lifeboat (1944) with the amazine Tallulah Bankhead. Ann recommends Irwin Allen's disaster classic The Towering Inferno (1974) and begs Hollywood to NEVER remake it.
