Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
Today we’re going to talk about some films that depict natural disasters!
#1 The Day After Tomorrow
In this movie hell – erm, sorry earth, freezes over due to climate change. I watched this film years ago and I know the only reason for that was Jake Gyllenhaal. There isn’t a single thing I seemed to be able to remember about the movie, so I’m not sure how good it was. 😂
This one might be most famous for the Aerosmith song that came on the soundtrack. With a stellar cast inlcuding Liv Tyler, Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck, this movie shows how earth almost is destroyed by an asteroid.
#3 Deep Impact
Deep Impact features a somewhat simliar trope as Armageddon as it features a comet about to collide with earth. According to Wikipedia, while Armageddon was more successful at the boxoffice, Deep Impact is more scientifically accurate. I didn’t bother to do any researcher on that, but now I’m intrigued!
