Avalanche ★½ 1999 (PG-13)

Prototypical cheesy disaster flic. Alaskan chopper pilot Neil (Griffith) helps out Lia (Feeney), the widow of an old pal, who works for the EPA. She believes the establishment of an oil company's overland pipeline through the mountains will trigger an avalanche that could destroy the city of Juneau. Naturally, no one believes her until there's an avalanche. (Considering the movie's title, you could have guessed this.) 105m/C VHS, DVD . Thomas Ian Griffith, Caroleen Feeney, R. Lee Ermey, C. Thomas Howell, John Ashton, Hilary Shepard; D: Steve Kroschel; W: Steve Kroschel; C: Steve Kroschel, Richard Pepin; M: K. Alexander (Alex) Wilkinson.
