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.

Chronologically, it begins with the army blowing down Brooklyn Bridge and it ends with only Will Smith, his dog and hundreds of zombies in NY.

Mars Attacks! (1996)
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.
diabolical dr voodoo's rating:
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.

Watchmen (2009)
Ozymandias blows lots of big cities, including obviously, New York, and blames it on Dr. Manhattan.

Earth is about to hit a newborn planet. The Empire State Building is half way submerged on one of the very first catastrophe films.
People who added this item 980 Average listal rating (607 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.9
This case was unfortunately real.
diabolical dr voodoo's rating:

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?
