I’ve been asked by many if I could just rate the disaster movies I’ve seen in an actual system like a star rating or out of ten. This is really difficult to do because I do enjoy films that are so bad they are good. However, after a few years of dodging this, I’ve finally decided to rank all the disaster movies I’ve seen into tiers.

This page will update as I review them.
