I’m not sure it qualifies, but it’s one of my favorites. That snow and cold weather clearly plays a role in the plot, so I would argue “yes.” My list would also include “Key Largo,” and I must say “Perfect Storm” was achingly good.
“The Day After Tomorrow” felt like one of those over-wrought, would-be ‘epics,’ but at least Hollywood tried.
The problem with “tornado” movies is I have yet to see one that comes within the same time zone of an actual tornado event. In that sense, I resemble war veterans who always said war movies never come close to capturing the terror and chaos of actual combat (at least until the opening of ‘Saving Private Ryan’).
Having said that, I must add that for me the best part of ‘Twister’ (other than Helen Hunt) was the special effects that provided the computer-generated tornadoes. It told me Hollywood was getting closer to being able to do a truly powerful tornado movie.
