Think about the sheer amount of energy required to be pulled out of the atmosphere to make that happen. The heat from that fire would have been sucked out of it in an instant like a bucket of ice water tossed on it.

    Or, storm surges from the ocean that are hundreds of feet high. To get these you need massive rises in air pressure at the epicenter of the storm. That requires winds like Jupiter has that are supersonic...

    The whole move is crap science. It's like watching Sharknado without the sharks...

      A person watches a blockbuster to complain about the science?

      I've just watched the Edge of Tomorrow - Groundhog day meets Aliens, but thoroughly enjoyable.

      Watched cheesy Independence day, the original, yesterday. Did I care the science was crap?

      When I watch a movie, is the story joined up? Does it fulfill its need?

      Unless a film states its about reality, assume its not. Switch off brain and enjoy .

            I thought it was great. 2 and 3 we're good but 4 really sucked.:deadhorse. If someone ever does a reboot of this movie they should get Samuel L.Jackson to play Chappy.

              +1 Perhaps I am too easy to please, but when I watched Waterworld for the first time last night, I enjoyed it very much.

                And never wondered where the gasoline, liquor, cigarettes, engine parts, ammunition and so forth came from on a drowned world?

                  Not once. It is Hollywood after all.

                    Yesterday I watched Oliver Stone's "The Doors" on a 25-year old VHS.
                    I believe there are movies that should be watched on VHS, not on DVD. What do you think?

                      DVD's have better quality.

                        Nostalgia. Though I don't buy anything that's not on blu ray anymore.

                          I prefer DVDs. But you are certainly right. And probably, old films don't seem too poorly aged on VHS rather than when seen in digital format.

                            I agree with that.

                            I try to watch the original Star Wars as it was before Lucas started changing things, as an example of what you're referring to. Just seems a lot better that way--oh, and I have the file on my computer, I don't have the old VHS anymore. Though Star Wars isn't a movie that's exactly aged poorly.

                              I'm a big sci-fi fan, but amazingly Star Wars bored me when I first watched it 35 years ago because I felt I was watching a shallow film for kids, and I still feel that way about it.
                              For a really, really deep sci-fi film for grownups you can't beat 'Interstellar'..
