ENTER: TV/Media Avatar Contest: DISASTER!
 
Welcome to the latest installment of the TV/Media Avatar Contest! This week's theme is: DISASTER!

My original thought was inspired by the genre of disaster films, however, I think it'll be more fun to expand the theme to include natural disasters, man-made disasters, or any circumstances that could be called a "disaster" (even humorous ones) ... so long as it's not SF/F (sorry Wizard of Oz fans).

Normal avatar rules apply (150x150).

Here's my entry:

Twister

How does Tuesday sound for a when the poll goes up?

Titanic (1997)

The ship sinkin', I mean, not the box office gross.

I was wondering how long it was going to take for someone to choose this! :techman:

Well, it is a pretty obvious choice....

- edit, to add -

Alright, how 'bout something a bit more obviously from the James Cameron movie....?

Maybe something a bit more disaster-y?

Opinions, if any?

Unless I misread this ...

it's a good avatar but my assumption is that said disaster still has to be featured in fictional non-science fiction media. Otherwise it would go in MISC
