Twister


The movie that I watched was called Twister. It is a movie that is about
the study of tornado's and a story of one of the actors lives called Joe. As a
little girl, Joe's father was killed by an F-5 tornado( This is the largest size
tornado possible). The movie begins with the actual death of Joe's father in
1969. After the tragedy, time is moved on to present day and into the field
where Joe is with a group of scientist's called the Chaser's.
Joe is presently married to a man called Bill. Bill is on the way to the
field to get some divorce papers signed by Joe so that he can marry again to a
woman named Melissa. Joe has put together a tornado studying device called
Dorothy. Dorothy is a big canister filled with hundreds of little censors that
fly up into the tornado and measure the size and wind velocities all at the same
time. The only way that the Chaser's can make it work is if they put it in the
damage path of the tornado. Joe is going to surprise Bill with Dorothy because
he is the one who actually thought up the design, and at the same time has
purposely not signed one of the papers.
Bill finally arrives and asks Joe for the papers. Joe hands Bill the
papers and acts like everything is okay. Bill looks through the papers and finds
the paper not signed, and Joe acts as if she never say the paper and begins to
read it. Bill becomes frustrated and just as She is about to sign one of the
chaser's yells out " there is a tornado about thirty miles away". Joe and her
team suddenly run to their cars and take off toward the area where the tornado
is. Bill is left standing there and realizes that the papers were not signed.
Bill gets into his truck with Melissa and proceeds to follow the chasers. He is
following and looks in his mirror and can see a competing group of chasers and
is runoff the road and busts a tire.
Bill catches up with the group at a little gas station that happens to
have a tire repair place across the street. Bill is standing in the road and
realizes that the other groups leader is a old partner named Jonas. Jonas had
gone out and found some corporate sponsors and doing so stole Bill's design of
Dorothy and has just named it something else. Bill is totally outraged and tries
to pick a fight with Jonas. Bill is so mad that he decides to join the chasers
and try to make Dorothy fly.
After a little while of waiting around with conversation, a tornado
touches down and the chasers jump in their cars and go toward the tornado's
place of touchdown. Bill is driving Joe's truck and they see the tornado in a
field. Bill enters the field in front of the tornado and get s down into a ditch.
Bill finds that he can't get out of the ditch and runs into a bridge with a
tractor on it. The tornado is too close for Bill and Joe to put Dorothy into the
path, so they decide to hide under the bridge for protection. Joe's truck is
picked up by the tornado and is thrown into the street where Melissa nearly

  • Film Noir
    Film Noir Forty years after Raymond Borde and Étienne Chaumeton defined the challenge, critical commentators on film noir continue to grapple with it. Ironically, American writers did not immediately take up consideration of this indigenous phenomenon and the question of its "essential traits." Only gradually in a frequently cross-referenced series of essays in the 1970s did they begin to express themselves. There are now a dozen full-length books in English concerning film noir and undoubtedly
  • Dominican music and film
    Dominican music and film The Caribbean island nation of the Dominican Republic is little known by most Americans, but America is ever present in the Dominican consciousness. Until Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire went head to head in the legendary homerun battle of 1998, few Americans were aware of any American-Dominican rivalry in western hemispheric culture. Nothing gave Dominicans more pride than to see Sosa hold Major League Baseballs homerun record, albeit for less than 24 hours before McGuire

    Americanization "If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose- because it contains all the others- the fact that they were the people who created the phrase to make money. No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity- to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created." Ayn Rand People have always been inte
