Twister (1996)

This is a good example of a summer blockbuster that many people remember but soon after consider it overblown. I know because I was one of those people. Many many many years later it aired on TV. I actually laughed out loud at the thought of revisiting the movie. However, I didn’t change the channel fast enough and soon became engrossed in its compelling story all over again. Though it’s co-written by a famed biotechnology fiction author, it’s no documentary and never claimed to be. The basic elements are meant to inspire the audience, or at least to awaken their imagination, both to enjoy the plot but also to imagine the impact of the technology portrayed by it. Though I was skeptical at the outset, I soon found myself caught up in the vortex of characters’ group dynamic, interpersonal drama, professional rivalry and scientific pursuits; all the elements required to form an action-packed adventure.
