The crazy storm last night that flooded I-70 and caused chaos for drivers’ evening commute got us thinking. We’ve covered the best horror movies and the best baseball movies to watch in bed in other posts. We can’t think of any better way to spend a rainy day than watching movies about how much worse the storm could get. Storms in movies and literature have brought Dorothy to Oz and Robinson Crusoe to a deserted island. We’ve put together a list of our favorite storm movies to watch in bed:
Relax on Your Mattress With These Storm Movies
- Twister – This 1996 movie won Academy Awards for visual effects and sound editing. The movie follows TV weather man Bill Harding, on his journey to serve his storm chaser wife, Dr. Jo Harding, divorce papers so he can marry his girlfriend, Melissa. The three end up chasing storms and trying to insert a revolutionary measuring device into the heart of several tornadoes. Watch for the famous cow scene!
- Sharknado – This falls into the “so bad it’s great” category of movies. Sharknado first aired on the SyFy network in 2013, and took off by storm. (Pun intended.) The movie features a freak hurricane in Los Angeles, and the ocean’s fiercest predators wreck havoc in the air, in the sea and on land.
- Jurassic Park – While the dinosaurs–and Jeff Goldbum–are the stars of this 1993 classic, things don’t really start to heat up until it rains. When it rains, it pours. Fences are broken, tyrannosaurus rexes escape, and people get eaten.
