There’s been some torrential rain here in London so umbrellas were at the ready. Nothing too extreme though. Which is more than can be said for the six films below. See if you can correctly work out the films where a natural disaster is the catalyst for the actions of the characters.

2 out if 6 😦 waaaaah!
You’ll hit it for six soon. In the meantime, have this to make you smile http://www.shoutbingo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/little-miss-sunshine.jpg
I got all of them. I loved Dante’s Peak (though the scene with Granny in the acid lake, really, she should have been put our of her misery for getting everyone in that position in the first place) and The Perfect Storm (where I later got to shoot down a guy I used to work with who said the wave at the end was far fetched, and I laid out all the information that was in the book about waves and how it was completely possible). Waterworld was pretty far fetched, particularly when you realize water depth seemed to be plot driven. And it was admitted that The Day After Tomorrow would have taken place over decades instead of days, but who was gonna sit through that?
Yeah the scene with the granny was supposed to be moving, but did nothing for me. Brilliant result 🙂 Bravo. Did you like the Ice Age films?
No. I liked none of them. I saw the first one, and sort of saw part ways the others on TV, but really loathed them.
And I know what Granny was suppose to be: Harry Truman (real name), the guy who ran the ski resort on Mt. St. Helens. He kept saying the mountain wouldn’t get him; he was wrong. Granny was the same way, and put everyone in danger. By the time she went down, I was like, “I’d have already killed her.”
You really do know your trivia. Any other natural disaster movies I could have included? Volcano? Armageddon?
Volcano was pretty crappy. I’d take Deep Impact over Armageddon any day because Deep Impact at least *tried* to get some of the science right. When Worlds Collide wasn’t bad, but the books were better, although a LOT dated.
Not Tommy Lee Jones’ finest, that’s for sure haha.
4 out of 6! 🙂
I’ve never seen 1 or 3! Its making me want to rewatch 6 though!
You’re not doing bad at all 🙂
5/6. So close!
Almost perfect! Which one got in the way? Was it the third one?
No, it was the 4th!
One of Clooney’s lesser mentioned films really. I thought more people might confuse Dante’s Peak with Volcano.
These are fun. Love my disaster films. 6/6 🙂
Well done Cindy. Great stuff 🙂
3/6–got 1, 2, and 5. I knew what 4 was, but I could not for the life of me think of the name! Lol. I should’ve gotten 6, but my brain failed me. Hahaha.
I knew you’d get 5 🙂 You must rock on Pixar films 🙂
Ooooh yeah I could tear up a Pixar quiz. 😉
