Did You Know?


Although it's not mentioned by any character, a tornado is measured by its destructive force with the Fujita's Scale. It was named after Tetsuya Fujita, who in 1971 in collaboration with Allan Pearson created a scale to differentiate a twister according the wind force: -F0: 60-117 km/h or 45- 72 mph (light damage). -F1: 117-181 km/h or 73-112 mph (moderate damage). -F2: 181-250 km/h or 113-157 mph (significant damage). -F3: 250-320 km/h or 158-206 mph (severe damage). -F4: 320-420 km/h or 207-260 mph (devastating damage). -F5: 420-510 km/h or 261-308 mph (incredible damage).

Considering this takes place in Oklahoma, residents would take seriously any threat of massive tornado threats. If the meteorologist in the van knows it, surely the weather bureau would know it too. There is no way the school would plan an outdoor commencement ceremony on an afternoon that offered such potential for extreme damage. See more »

Boy 2: A little busy back here, okay?
Girl 1: Yeah, we can see that, David.
Girl 2: Yeah, you can get un-busy.
Boy 2: Oh, come on, Marce. I mean, you know, we skipped graduation for this.
Girl 2: You are not graduating down there, David Brody.
Girl 1: Hey, you better not be filming us.
Boy 1: No, just checking my messages.
Girl 2: [electricity pops] What was that?

I seriously don't get all the negative reviews for this movie.
14 January 2015 | by gemma_nightSee all my reviews

My family is a big movie-watching family. That's our thing. We watch a lot of different types of movies and we watch movies all the time. So I feel confident in saying I know quite a bit about movies--about what makes a good movie, how to tell a good movie from a bad movie, etc.

My mom really wanted to see "Into the Storm" because she's on kind of a Richard Armitage kick since "The Hobbit". We talked about going to the theaters to see it, but I decided to check the IMDb reviews, and they told me it was a terrible movie.

So we didn't see it. Tonight I was picking up a couple Redbox movies on my way home, and decided to get this one because why not. I wasn't expecting anything, but we were still curious about it.

So we watched it, and I LITERALLY DON'T GET all the negative reviews!! The main strike against this movie (according to the reviews) was the acting. What?! I thought the acting was really good! I thought the characters were all believable! I was able to understand and emotionally connect to all the characters--there were two scenes that made me cry a bit, and I am NOT a crier. I NEVER cry during movies. The acting and the documentary-style filming actually made me feel like I was ACTUALLY THERE (although this could probably have been even more palpable if I had seen it in theaters...that's what you get for basing a decision on IMDb reviews?), which was very stressful, but made the movie so much more enjoyable.

I have seen A LOT of bad movies in my time; "Into the Storm" doesn't even come close to making that list.
