Anyone remember watching the Airport movie series? I will admit that the original 1970 Airport movie to be one of those satisfying watches, and even when I was younger and didn't know about widescreen version vs pan&scan when I watched it on TV (including those awkward "cut to widescreen for that insert shot"), it was an enjoyable two hours with some requotable lines. The sequels, however, are another story, Each sequel got more convoluted than the previous film to where the final film was more comedy than anything else. One of the appeals of the original film was the interaction between the airport and the troubled airplane, and plenty of stuff at the airport level. The sequels, however, seem to forget the airport part and concentrate on the disaster part. I have also viewed pre-Airport movies that were pretty good, including Zero Hour! (which formed the base story for the Airplane! movie) and John Wayne's The High and the Mighty. Too bad both of these films are only available on DVD.
