Kurt Russel or John Travolta?

Backdraft has always been my favorite movie. Come on, who can forget when that movie first came out, All the "wackers" coming to movie theatre with there pagers one, knowing that they are out of their district, dragged the love ones to see it and they didn't want to. And who can not forget the famous line of the movie, "You go, We go!"

Ladder 49....
Hands down Ladder 49

Fireproof is from the same people who made "Facing the Giants", a wonderful but little known movie.

I am actually kind of excited to see this one...
I really don't know why, but I can watch Ladder 49 anytime and not get tired to it. Both are good, but I'd have to go with Ladder 49.

I'm with you, I love Ladder 49 and watch it several times and never seem to tire of it.
I would say that Ladder 49 was the better of the 2
I have to say ladder 49 but Backdraft is a great movie espicially the line "It's a living thing, Brian. It breathes, it eats, and it hates. The only way to beat it is to think like it. To know that this flame will spread this way across the door and up across the ceiling, not because of the physics of flammable liquids, but because it wants to. Some guys on this job, the fire owns them, makes 'em fight it on it's level, but the only way to truly kill it is to love it a little."
But my favorite of all is I now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry For the line " Going in Alive Coming out the Same"
Although I do love backdraft, my vote will have to be for Ladder 49!!!
I love them both so much. But I think I would have to say Ladder 49 for me. It's a hard movie to watch though. I cant help but imagine that's what it was like for those firefighters who were trapped in the rubble during 9/11. It breaks my heart to think about it. But...that's why that movie gets my vote.
I really liked Ladder 49, since it seemed more factual and less "hollywood", but I hail from Chicagoland and Backdraft will always be my favorite. Besides, Backdraft came out around the time I was going through the Fire Academy! Stay safe!
Back draft it was more than one story and kept you thinking
Both were good but I think Ladder49 was more true to life
