Meh what's wrong with people 10 years ago lol. This is a great disaster flick with all the right ingredients in the right dosage. It'll get you cooking til it's ready then serve you the 3 course and dessert. Enjoy!
Great movie 9/10..
not because the weird post below me.
The plot is borrowed from "Jaws" here's how it goes one man knows the truth others refuse to listen until it's to late. then they want him to do somthing about it of course they rag on him for not doing anything earilier.
Dante's Peak: 6/10

:rotten: This film is similar to Volcano, but this has no good actor, there are lots of action; that saves the film in certain way from a total mess, the film has several technical errors. Linda Hamilton is repeting her role in The Terminator (1984), and Pierce Brosnan acts without his tuxedo but he does exactly the same than his character in the 007's movies.

The action sequences are too long and the dialogs are an awful mix of corny with suffering and heroism. I don't recommend it, but if you watch it you can get fun just for a moment, and when the film ended you would probably say: "this film is a "churro" I will never watch it again".
The overall plot and characters are undermined by the stupidity, such as driving a pickup truck across a hardened, but hot lava field.
'Dante's Peak' was one of the volcano disaster films that emerged in the mid/late-1990s. It's just what you would expect out of the typical thriller movie. You're introduced to the characters: typically a male and female lead who will probably get together by the end of the film, a brewing disaster usually followed through with some sort of science lesson, and a fast-paced and action-packed scenario typically involving something natural like killer snakes or dinosaurs or terrorists or valcanoes or aliens or snowstorms or tornadoes... You can pretty much make a generated storyline based on the genre. Enter number of characters, at least one male and one female. Enter natural disaster. Hit submit to get your plot.

Dante's Peak is no exception to the rule. You can pretty much guess the conclusion here. Hey, if you like thrillers, see this film. If you don't like them, then don't bother. I wish I hadn't been dragged off to the cinema to see this. Talk about a watse of a few dollars...
Starship Troopers - Has some cheesy parts but I have seen it countless times and always love it. 8/10

Minority Report - EXCELLENT Movie. One of my favorites and a VERY well done movie with great acting and a very good story. Well-Made in almost all assets. 9/10

I, Robot - I love Will Smith and also loved him in this movie too. Pretty average movie: Not Great, Not Bad. 7/10

The Day After Tomorrow - A lot of money and time and spent and still seems to lack in just about everything except maybe the Special FX. Not a very well done movie at all, could have been much better: had a good idea just not done well, especially the acting. Still somewhat exciting in a few parts so with that said: 5/10

Dante's Peak - Because I saw this 6 years ago, I only remember it being really good. Now that I actually review movies, I dont remember the bad parts about it so I can't give this a bad rating, I liked it then so why not now?! 7/10
I'm beginning the rather lengthy task of entering into the database every film I have seen, at least those I have a decent memory of. Some may have the briefest of reviews while many will just have a number. Those films that I consider personal favorites and/or those that have some historical signficance I will add later when I have time for more lengthy reviews.

Unlawful Entry, directed by Jonathan Kaplan, is a psychological thriller with a severely riddled script. Features Kurt Russell, Madeleine Stowe and Ray Liotta.

Used People, directed by Beeban Kidron, is a romantic comedy featuring a fine ensemble cast including Shirley MacLaine, Marcello Mastroiani, Jessica Tandy, Kathy Bates, Marcia Gay Harden, and Joe Pantoliano. Unfortunately the fine cast can't overcome some serious writing flaws in the script.

Volcano, directed by Mick Jackson, is a horrible disaster film starring Tommy Lee Jones, Anne Heche, and Don Cheadle.

Did we really need two volcano pictures in one year? No we didn't! But if you have to watch one, pick the lesser of the two evils, which would be Dante's Peak, directed by Roger Donaldson. The film didn't have as big of a budget, but it's almost watchable. Stars Linda Hamilton and Pierce Brosnan.

Indochine, directed by Regis Wargnier, is an epic romance that won an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language of 1992. It's overwrought and probably not deserving of that award, but it's notable for Catherine Deneuve's performance.
