Thursday Movie Picks #56: Natural Disaster

Hey! Welcome to Thursday Movie Picks where you get to share your movie picks for each topic presented every Thursday!  Based on the theme presented each week, you can pick up to 3 to 5 movies and explain why you picked those movies! This meme is being hosted by Wandering through the Shelves!




This week's theme is: Natural Disaster!

YAAASSS!  Now we are talking about my favorite movie genre and that's natural disasters!  I love watching movies where the characters are running away from a natural disaster and are trying to survive the disaster.  Those types of films are pretty fun to watch!  So, here are three movies that dealt with natural disasters that I've seen!











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.

I remembered when this movie first came out and I remembered how awed I was with the special effects of the tornado scenes.  Also, who could forget that scene where Bill and Jo went to their aunt's house to have some steak and mashed potatoes?  Mmmmm...steak and potatoes....yummy!








When the network of satellites designed to control the global climate starts to attack Earth, it's a race against the clock for its creator to uncover the real threat before a worldwide Geostorm wipes out everything and everyone.

Even though the plot of this movie was a bit thin, you have to admit that the storm sequences were awesome and it's one natural disaster film that I definitely don't mind watching over and over again!




3. Armageddon




After discovering that an asteroid the size of Texas is going to impact Earth in less than a month, NASA recruits a misfit team of deep-core drillers to save the planet.

You all remembered this movie, right?  The movie where a group of astronauts go to space to stop an asteroid from hitting Earth?  Yeah, I've seen a lot of sci-fi movies where the astronauts try to stop an asteroid from destroying the Earth, but this movie is probably the most iconic out of all of them!

Thursday Movie Picks #55: Worst Book to Movie Adaptations

 

Hey! Welcome to Thursday Movie Picks where you get to share your movie picks for each topic presented every Thursday!  Based on the theme presented each week, you can pick up to 3 to 5 movies and explain why you picked those movies! This meme is being hosted by Wandering through the Shelves!




This week's theme is: Worst Book to Movie Adaptations!

So usually, when it comes to movies adapting a book to the big screen, either the adaptation is much better than the original source material or they end up being worse than the source material.  In this case, we are focusing on the worst book to movie adaptations and man, did these adaptations give me a headache...









Two bored children have their lives turned upside down when a talking cat comes to visit them.

So, when I first heard that this movie was being announced, I was actually excited for it.  All that excitement died the moment I saw this horrific adaptation of one of the most beloved children's books.  I mean, "The Cat in the Hat" was one of my all-time favorite children's books and this movie pretty much bombed it to death.








Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human-half vampire, a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discreetly within our world.  Her calling is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi.

Did anyone remember that Richelle Mead's "Vampire Academy" book had a movie adaptation?  Yeah, I didn't remember it either (until now).  "Vampire Academy" was one of my all-time favorite paranormal romance novels that I have ever read and after I saw this movie, I was like "What have you done to one of my favorite paranormal romance books?"  It's like this movie had absolutely nothing to do with the book and it made me so mad, especially since I really loved the book this was based on.




3. X-Men: The Last Stand






The human government develops a cure for mutations, and Jean Grey becomes a darker uncontrollable persona called the Phoenix who allies with Magneto, causing escalation into an all-out battle for the X-Men.

So, do comic book adaptations count?  Because if they do, I have to put this movie as one of the worst adaptations I have ever seen.  It was an adaptation of "The Dark Phoenix Saga" from the X-Men comics and not only did it have too many plot lines going through it that I got so confused by the story, but they also changed everything about the Dark Phoenix herself from the comics that I could barely recognize the Dark Phoenix in this movie.
