Twister -- In my set of favorites, own the original DVD and the updated one, I even have the VHS somewhere. I have seen this at least 50 times. Great acting, great FX for the time, and the soundtrack is great too!

I have had interest in the concept of severe weather for my entire life and had high expectations for the movie "Twister" and the result cuts boths ways for me.
The movie is of a married meteoroligist couple who are in the midst of getting a divorce, and have not gotten along for a very long time and they make a new invention that they believe will help them see what it looks like, inside a full blown tornado. They have ambition to deploy this new technology to disperse 'lighter than air' radio transmitters into a twister and record the signals to see what it may look like inside a tornado.
The special effects when the tornadoes strike are absolutely awesome not to mention the chase scenes especially towards the ending when the couple speed away from a tornado drive right through a house that was thrown onto the countryside road by a tornado (Impossible in real life) and the other of when a drive-in movie screen showing a snippet of the movie "The Shining" being ripped apart by a F5 tornado in the middle of the night.
"Twister" though suffers from several things and I can sometimes see where some of the detractors are coming from when regarding this movie. While the action scenes and special effects are amazing, the movie's plot lacks a good flow and the film drags on and on in several places and one scene which is just like a boring day at home would've been better left out altogether. Plus the characters are very unconvincing and lack personality.
Even for me who doesn't mind ocassional deviation from the laws of physics in movies, some of the tornadoe scenes are completely unrealistic.

All of us know what a tornado(twister) does: it spins round and around as fast as singer/songwriter, Stevie Nicks! So it is only appropriate she composed a tune for the soundtrack of this great movie!Helen Hunt and Bill Paxon lead an all star cast about a married couple to be divorced, only their love for "storm chasing" tornados brings them back together.The love bit fits perfectly in this heart pounding action film.The Tornados look amazingly real. Top notch special effects. (The scene with the cow you'll never forget)The film keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire film, from the very start of the film.This film is a much deserved box office blockbuster, and even though this film is fantastic and grossed millions of dollars, thankfully, no sequals were made, as I think some films should stand on there own.In the summer of 1996, this was my fave flick! Never boring, always exciting, with a theme(tornados) not previously used for a "summer blockbuster" intended flick.And the icing on the cake?The great soundtrack(Van Halen, Rusted root, Goo Goo Dolls) which is highlighted by the song, "Twisted," written for this movie by rock legend, Ms. Stevie Nicks, and performed by Stevie Nicks her ex lover(and re-united Fleetwood Mac member), Mr. Lindsey Buckingham!!WOW! A GREAT movie and STEVIE NICKS as well!Like I said, this movie is a TWIRLING, rockin' good time!

Some movies are made as excused to play with special effects, which is a pretty good explanation for "Twister." This film was basically sold to the American public on the basis of two special effects shots in the trailer: a tornado demolishing a barn plank by plank and a tire heading right through a windshield at the camera. The latter was not in the film, but that was beside the point. In 1939 Arnold Gillespe used a stocking to terrify children for the rest of the century with the tornado in "The Wizard of Oz." In 1996 "Twister" intended to up the ante with computerized effects (of course there are lots of homages to the previous film, with "Dorothy" being the name of the tornado device that measures the wind speeds of the tornado and the cow blowing around in the air just like what Dorothy saw out her window when her twister lifted up the house).
Director Jan de Bont was making his second film after the smash hit "Speed," so basically he needed some action. But the script by Michael Crichton and Anne-Marie Martin decides to overload the script with melodramatic elements. Helen Hunt plays Dr. JoAnne "Jo" Thorton-Harding, who has been chasing tornadoes ever since the night one of them took her daddy away. Her scientific purpose is to study them so that meterologists can make more accurate predictions and warn people in time to save lives, but obviously she has deep psychological demons driving her as well. This is one of the reasons that her husband, William Harding (Bill Paxton) is trying to get her to sign divorce papers. He is hoping to build a new life with Dr. Melissa Reeves (Jamie Gertz), but being able to study tornadoes in peace without Jo going crazy would be nice too.
