Readers Respond: What's the Best Skyscraper Movie?

What's the best movie you've ever seen about skyscrapers or great buildings? What happened? Who starred? What made that film so great? Recommend a movie

My Father, the Genius

Similar to My Architect, but with a somewhat less sympathetic lead...priceless for footage from the 1970s of Frank Gehry looking astonished as the protagonist essentially demolishes his own career in public...

Tall Building Movies

How about 'Entrapment'? The movie revolves around the theft from the PETRONAS Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; I think that is where it was represented. There were several scenes that represented the Asian twin spires. It starred Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones as a master thief and an insurance investigator. What do you think?

Not a Skyscraper

Back to the Future, 1985 directed by Robert Zemeckis, produced by Steven Spielberg, starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Llowyd, has a Green and Green house (the Dr.'s house) that is awesome. Well the entrance is featured anyway.

Skyscraper is good!

I like the film Skyscraper and I like the actress Anna Nicole Smith. I love you, Anna!

Entrapment offers you unusual views of the Petronas Towers. The stunts are also mind boggling. Have read Ayn Rand's Fountainhead and must confess a great read, but have not seen the film. If the product is anything close to the book, then it is must watch for all architecture enthusiasts!
