The Storm Chasing Crew

The Storm Chasing Crew

Twister is a great movie that is both fun and informational. I think that people of all ages can enjoy the action in the movie, but also get a taste of what real storm chasers do. This movie is really able to capture the ferocity of a Tornado, and maybe help people to realize that these are things that need to be respected.


As far as the article relating to the movie, I think the article is interesting but could use a little work in that area. I saw very little of the terms that are defined in Twister. For example, a little more about the levels of the Tornados would be nice. I do remember a few times where they talked about convergence in the movie, however.

The article on this page is full of information and just about the right length. I think it could be tweaked to accommodate the movie more if that is your goal. If you are just giving an example of a storm related movie, than the website is fine the way it is. All in all, I think this is well done, fun, and informational. You certainly can't beat the movie Twister either.

Barry's Response - Thanks Sarah. I thought the film was fun as well. The page really was about identifying and tracking storms on the weather map, (they way meteorologists use vorticity weather map symbols) and Twister was an example of the fun you can have with this, if so inclined.

Twister as an example
by: Anonymous

I think the movie Twister was just meant to be an example and that's why there wasn't a lot of detail specifically about it. Sure was a good movie, and a good reference point for people interested in tornadoes and tracking! Who could forget the airborne cow?!

Loved Twister

I love weather and storm chasing. The movie twister is one of favorite movies. Although the article was about storm chasing, The movie Twister does deal with this.

Twister Review
by: AnitaJay52

Not having read the subject article, all I can do is second the desire to have more detail related to classification of tornadoes. There was some explanation in the movie - I remember something about Helen Hunt's family being affected by an F5 storm - but that's about the extent of my knowledge. I think the entire field is fascinating and well deserving of additional funding in these lean times.
