Codemorse Collides With The Towering Inferno

My newest review is up at, and this time I tackle Irwin Allen's 70's disaster-fest, The Towering Infereno.

As always, a brief excerpt:

Every generation needs a Tower of Babel story. We seem to have a need to tell and retell that particular tale of man’s hubris and God’s wrath once every few years. The Toweing Inferno is yet another reiteration of that story, told in the dull omnipresent oranges and browns of the 70’s. Everything in this movie is orange. Or brown. Or orange and brown. Everything orange or brown catches on fire. Panic, death, and mild 70’s lite-rock ensue. That’s the plot, served up in the proverbial nutshell.

Read the whole burning enchilada right HERE.
