In the latest installment, the RoT guys take on the disaster film by looking at The Towering Inferno (1974), Twister (1996), and Dante’s Peak (1997) in a double-sized bonus episode that’s almost as long as The Towering Inferno! Listen and discover the answers to these thrilling questions: Why don’t Sam and Stephen agree on how to classify the disaster genre? What does Josh Brolin have to do these three films? How many James Cameron connections can three guys make in one podcast? Which looks more realistic – the fire or the lava?
As promised, here’s the clip of the cabin implosion from Dante’s Peak that Sam mentions in the episode. Let us know in the comments below how you think the effects hold up!
