Every young boy going up has a fantasy of becoming astronauts, firefighters, police officers, Olympic athletes, etc.
I personally wanted to be an astronaut but fireman was a close second and when I first saw Backdraft I was completely enamored. And even after growing up and picking a better and more interesting career path I still find Backdraft an excellent movie and brings back great memo... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: April (27 movies items)

"April 1 "You see that flash of light in the corner of your eye? That's your career dissipation light. It just went into high gear." As a person who doesn't know too much about firemen, I thought this movie was amazing. It had some powerful scenes, great acting and some really amazing fire effects. Out of all the Ron Howard movies I have seen so far, I think this one is his best."

Almost a complete review of Ron Howard's work (21 movies items)

" Cast : Kurt Russell, William Baldwin, Robert De Niro, Donald Sutherland, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Scott Glenn, Rebecca De Mornay, Clint Howard What was it about? Two Chicago firefighter brothers who don't get along have to work together while a dangerous arsonist is on the loose. My two cents: It is another movie which I haven’t seen for a while and I might give it another shot at some point. Some people really have a weak spot for this flick and it is indeed a decent action flick but it "

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"Visually, pic often is exhilarating, but it's shapeless and dragged down by corny, melodramatic characters and situations. - Variety Staff, Variety Visually speaking, the film does pretty well with fire-as-spectacle, less well with everything else (Howard tends to trot out fuzzy-toned Spielbergian backlighting on any pretext). - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader Backdraft is sure to do for fire what The Poseidon Adventure did for water - Rita Kempley, Washington Post"
