Director De Bont's sophomore directorial effort is another non-stop adrenaline drive, but instead of a mad bomber, nature is the bad guy. Hunt leads a team of storm chasing scientists through Oklahoma in hopes of placing robotic sensors inside a tornado. Hunt's soon-to-be ex-husband Paxton rejoins the chase, to spice things up when the skies clear. There's a lot of things flying around, including trucks, houses, cows and the plausibility of the plot. Some nice chemistry between Hunt and Paxton, apparently the only people who can still look attractive in high winds and blowing debris.

Twister! This movie was another old favorite of mine. This movie is mixed with adventure, comedy, and action. Twister is about a group of storm chasers, who chase tornado's! Throughout this movie you see a lot of stuff flying around, such as vehicles, fences, and even cows! These storm chasers came up with an invention call "Dorthy", and their goal is to see Dorthy fly. Dorthy is a machine that sends information from inside the tornado, as well as other information. They made a few Dorthy's in case one was to fail, which a few did fail. Finally, the last one flew!
