Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
A giant, reptilian monster surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake. To stop the monster (and its babies), an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
Communist Radicals hijack Air Force One with The U.S. President and his family on board. The Vice President negotiates from Washington D.C., while the President, a Veteran, fights to rescue the hostages on board.
Jack Hall, paleoclimatologist, must make a daring trek from Washington, D.C. to New York City, to reach his son, trapped in the cross-hairs of a sudden international storm which plunges the planet into a new Ice Age.
Something unspeakably chilling is ultimately starting to heat up at The City of Los Angeles! Beneath the famed La Brea Tar Pits, a raging volcano has formed, raining a storm of deadly fire bombs and an endless tide of white-hot lava upon the stunned city!Written by

The cell phone that Gator Harris gives Kelly Roark to talk with her father is a Motorola DynaTAC, commonly nicknamed "brick phone". The cell phone used by Mike Roark is a Motorola StarTAC, and the first flip phone created. See more »
Exciting--but you do have to suspend disbelief a lot (see other entries here). E.g., when the air tankers and firefighters stop the lava flow at Fairfax, a reporter notes the tremendous steam being created. Yet everyone remains completely dry (if ash-covered) instead of drenched. At the end, rain washes everyone clean again--and no lingering ash on anyone. (Of course, icky ashes on all costumes would have meant a horrendous laundry job for the Wardrobe Dept.) See more »
Roark, Roark. There's lava in the red line. This just came through on the radio. The lava had overtaken a subway train in MacArthur park and completely destroyed it.
Is it still flowing?
It stopped. But there's more under us. There's has to be something feeding this. We know that the lava broke through here at the tar pits and created this vent, and we know that it broke through at MacArthur park, so that means it is traveling laterally underground over a course of at least eight miles.

Australian Free-to-air TV is in such a poor state that this movie was the best thing I could find tonight. This cliché-ridden piece seemed to have been written by 'my film student nephew' who 'has Final Draft on his computer' with the visual effects done by his mate who owns a pirated copy of After Effects. That's not to say that this film doesn't have its virtues. With a little extra modern day post-production this could be an excellent comedy instead of just an accidental one. Just have Mel Brooks tweak the script (not too much!), then CGI replace Tommy Lee Jones with Rick Moranis, give Anne Heche the voice of Joan Rivers and call it 'Lava Balls'.
