An exciting disaster film that’s completely inaccurate scientifically, The Day After Tomorrow will have you on the edge of your seat – just don’t believe it.

Paleoclimatologist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) warns the U.S. vice president (Kenneth Walsh) that impending climate changes will cause the Earth to have massive weather changes. These happen sooner than expected and soon the world is experiencing natural disasters everywhere.

If you’re looking for crazy nonsense, this is exactly the film to watch. Shots of tornadoes destroying Los Angeles and a tidal wave washing over the Statue of Liberty into New York City are now iconic is the disaster genre.

Unlike many disaster films, this one cares about making meaningful characters and you’ll feel connected to them and hope for their survival.

Final say: If this is the last day, I’m here for it. ★★★★☆
