'''''Meteor''''' is a 1979 impact event film, one of the last attempts to maintain that decade's DisasterMovie genre (although given the basic premise of two of the blockbusters of more modern times, maybe it was prophetic). An all-star cast including SeanConnery, Karl Malden and Creator/NatalieWood work to stop a five-mile wide meteor (yes, a five-mile wide space rock is called a meteor, not an asteroid) from hitting the Earth in six days after it was detected within the asteroid belt.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: And HOW! (In spite of having not one, but ''two'' scientific advisors.)
** As stated above, a five-mile wide chunk of rock is called a ''meteor'', instead of an ''asteroid''. Meteors are technically the visible path of a meteoroid that has entered the Earth's atmosphere.

* OldShame: The majority of the cast hated the film, most notably Natalie Wood.
* SpecialEffectFailure: The entire movie. This is particularly true of all the scenes set in outer space, where every spaceship, station, and missile is an obvious plastic set using a ''stagelight as the sun'' in one shot, and the meteorites that shower upon the Earth's cities are equally unconvincing bright lights zooming across still shots of the various disaster zones. Considering what other disaster movies had been able to accomplish around the same time in the 1970s, ''Meteor'' is a particularly embarrassing case of this trope.
