YMMV: Meteor
  • Fridge Logic: How exactly did America and the Soviet Union launch satellites armed with over a dozen nuclear warheads in complete secret from the rest of the world?
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The World Trade Center is hit by the meteor, and violently explodes.
  • Special Effect Failure: Where do we begin?
    • When Challenger 2 passes by with the sun in the background, the "sun" is clearly a stage light.
    • Many of the disaster scenes are actually reused Stock Footage from other films, including Mia Farrow's film Avalanche and just normal demolitions.
    • As the asteroid hits New York, the stock footage is tinted red to hide the fact that the buildings look nothing like Lower Manhattan.
    • Hong Kong harbour made of cardboard cutouts (and accompanying tidal wave that didn't quite make it), mudslides made of brown water, an avalanche clearly blue-screened over footage of a skier.
