You Think Your Weather is Bad! by American Elephant

Tornado season is on its way

Sioux City, Iowa

Grand Island, Nebraska

Alvo, Nebraska

Storm-chasers are nuts. But they make good fodder for action/adventure movies. If you’ve never seen Twister with Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton, give it a rent. It’s not high cinema, it’s just good, solid, storm-chasing fun!

A great example of how computer graphics can be used to make the action more believable, instead of over-the-top and unbelievable — Twister really sucks you into the action, and almost makes you feel as though you’re right there in the path of the tornado.

Naturally, to get the best effect, I recommend watching it on the biggest screen you can. The truly daring may want to try finding it at a drive-in. But any way you watch it, Twister is a classic, popcorn-crunching, edge-of-your-seat thriller.

And if you’re reading us from Tornado Alley, keep your heads down and stay safe this season.
