I absolutely LOATHE the Friedberg/Seltzer films. I haven't seen it, I don't want to see it and I don't know what happens in this film. Probably lots of unfunny shannanigans. Disaster Movie is here just because of this (also unfunny) poster:

NY here became a no man's land in which Plissken has to enter to save the US president. Too bad the Statue of Liberty only appears in the poster.

Godzilla (1998)
Godzilla versus the US Army in Manhattan in this awful remake of an absolute Japanese classic!

On a side note, why doesn't this American Godzilla has the fire breath? Let's think... A giant reptilian created by nuclear radiation strolling through Manhattan is okay, but when it begins throwing fire from its mouth is too much for the audience to buy??

The answer: Toho Company, Ltd. gave the filmmakers of Godzilla (1998) certain guidelines they were supposed to follow, one of them being including plasma breath. But they did the unthinkable - they essentially told Toho, a very no-compromise company for anyone who knows of them, that they'd do it their way and Toho just couldn't do a thing about it.

thanks Pumpkinate for the information.

Like Independence Day, the aliens destroy everything in sight, but the difference is that in here they don't take it seriously, which works.

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it. You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

No music in the end credits, just the waves in the beach. Perfect.

Titan A.E. (2000)
Contrary to most people, I happen to like this film, in spite of its flaws.

NY doesn't appear here exactly, but since Earth is completely whiped out in the first few minutes of film, I guess that the Big Apple goes along with it.

The only good moment of the film (aside from Megan Fox) is in the very beginning, when the army and the good transformers are in pursuit through NY after an evil transformer.

New York have been invaded by all kinds of creatures, Godzilla, King Kong, the Cloverfield monster, aliens, hordes of zombies and even the Muppets!

All cataclismic disasters had also happened there. Tsunamis, explosions, earthquakes, modern ice age, even the very selective meteors of Armageddon, that only crash in big American and European cities and never in the ocean.

What will be next?

That is just funny. How many times do we really need to destroy New York?

I don't think it was destroyed by giant flying blood-thirsty monkeys from outer-space. We need a movie with NY being destroyed by these creatures.

New York's such a cliche in movies these days. How about San Francisco? Las Vegas? Where's the respect for those?
