    I've seen a propane tank explode and several of them going up would have shredded everyone next to that burning truck. Since we are roasting these movies anyways, might as well add that bit in.

    I would've loved to see him comment on the first episode of HBO's "Chernobyl". People always talk (well, argue) about the accuracy of the series as a whole, and the radiation, politics and liquidation, but I'd love to hear about the little details of how realistic the portrayal of the first responders was, like this sort of analysis. Any firefighters in the comment section?

    One thing I want to point out about Ladder 49 that they got right was the scene at the power plant where the firefighter gets burned. They airlifted the firefighter to the hospital and they were able to get the Maryland State Police to film the scene. Here in Maryland, the State Police provide the majority of medevac fly outs.

    Also side note I promise you can be calm while your house burns and you are there, I personally had my own house burn ran back in like a dummy to save my dog, (got him btw and he’s still alive to this day) but I was quite calm when they came in, I got my dog and they escorted me while I laughed at the fact that I even went back. Then I went out side and fired up the neighbors garden hose and put out the grass while they put out the house. Rough night, but a learning experience 😅

    Steve buscemi actually was in New York City firefighter before he became famous. During 9/11 he actually left Hollywood and actually went back to New York and became a firefighter again and dug through the rebel of the world trade centers. As in New York City firefighter he won 100% is an amazing actor and an amazing human being.

    My father-in-law is a retired firefighter. As this guy said you have to check there IS a floor before going forward. He once pulled back his buddy because the room didn't feel right. They had almost no visibility and later found out a huge section of the floor was missing. He's the most calm person I know.

    Firefighters are absolute alpha males. The human body was never meant to fight fire, much less thrive in it but that's how firefighters earn a living. I would describe them as working class heroes. Everyday miracle workers who remain humble. That's the pinnacle of being an alpha male.

    Not only Buscemi was a firefighter in New York, but he went back to his old station the day after 9/11 and he worked 12 hours each day for several days looking for survivors, sifting through the debris alongside many many other firefighters obviously. Declined all interviews and only a handful of photographs of him during those days actually exist. Truly remarkable.
