One of my favorite movies of all time is the original Poseidon Adventure. It is about a cruise liner that ends up capsizing because of a monsoon wave.
There is an amazingly scary scene when the boat first starts to capsize. Most of the guests are gathered in a grand ballroom having a wild party. Suddenly the boat starts to shift, fires break out and men and women in fancy evening dress start scrambling for their lives, most perishing. It really captures the horror of a moment like that.
