Natural Disasters in Cinema

Natural Disasters in Cinema. Nobody can stop thinking about Hurricane Sandy, wishing everyone in the northeast and mid-Atlantic U.S. states safety during these days. Good luck and we are sure that everything will be O.K. in a week.

Natural Disasters. 2012

Natural Disasters. 2012

Films and movies have tried the topic. In the end, natural disasters are part of our lives and we have to be prepared to face them. Sometimes thinking of the consequences and trying to prevent them, some others smiling in front of the tragedy, because it gives us the strength to overcome it. We are sure, again, all will be in calm in some days.

How have movies seen natural disasters?

1.- 2012 (2009).
After the E.T. intelligence destroyed Washington in Independence Day, Roland Emmerich -a real filmmaker star in this kind of films- gave us the final disaster movie: the Sistine Chapel… Manhattan, Mexico and Los Angeles… and finally the whole world. However, it looks like the world continues after 2012, because the world cannot die.
With John Cusack, Thandie Newton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Amanda Peet and Oliver Platt.

Here, some images of the film.

2.- Day After Tomorrow (2004)

I’ve seen this film years ago (of course, directed by Roland Emmerich). This time we will go with Dennis Quaid (dull performance). He is a climatologist called Jack Hall. The impressive images almost cannot let us watch Dennis Quaid and, no, I am not being ironic and I don’t want to qualify the acting of Dennis Quaid as a ‘natural disaster’. Come on, Dennis, you can do it!

3.- Armageddon (1998), Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck cannot make a bad movie, or they can?

I’ve seen this movie several times. It’s supposed that it isn’t funny but I cannot stop laughing when I see these two ‘great’ actors working together. Anyway, the song by Aerosmith was good.
The idea is this: a team of rough oil drillers drop a nuclear warhead into the core of the meteorite. And this is only the beginning.

4.- Deep Impact

I don’t know why but I liked this movie. Directed by Mimi Leder and staring by Elijah Wood, Téa Leoni, Morgan Freeman, and Robert Duvall. I would vote for Morgan Freeman… and if you have watched the previews trailers you should discover this yet: the natural disasters always finish equal in the movies: NYC is destroyed again and the world has to start for its ashes.

5.- Twelve monkeys

Terry Gillian with Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt. Maybe it’s the best film we have mentioned –of course, NYC destroyed-. Great screenplay and Brad Pitt is simply great. In fact, the only movie of these five that I can recommend like a good movie.
