To: Sam the Sham
Thank you Sam. Your last point is especially good. Intellectuals love to talk among themselves about allegorical themes in films. To the rest of us...regular folk...they often seem to be just an insult to our traditions and values. We're not smart enough to understand, I guess.

In Irwin Allen movies the disaster is always caused by human pride and sin. The Poseidon sank because the bean counters stinted on the cost of ballast and the corporate weasal insisted on overruling the captain. The towering inferno was a monument to the pride of its builders, like the Tower of Babel (get it ? tower ?).
