Haven't seen 2012 or Into The Storm yet. Totally forgot about the latter... I remember wanting to see it.

Paid to see San Andreas and Day After Tomorrow in theater. I saw Twister at a drive in when I lived in KY and it was wild.

The movie really sucks but the avalanche in Avalanche-1978 makes up for it with ton's of dead people, killed by bad effect's and Styrofoam snow!

I have seen Day After Tomorrow probably 50+ times.

I can't stay away when it's on TV (which is always).

Same. FX pretty much airs it twice a day, 365 days a year.

If 2012 or The Day After Tomorrow is on, I'm watching. I don't even like them, they're just mindless entertainment.

The CGI wolves in Day After Tomorrow are so bad though.

Oh yeah that movie was cool. I watched it when it first came out.

That also just reminded me of the Wave from Norway. That was a legit good ass movie on top of being a disaster movie

Twister is probably the movie i've seen the most times, watched it probably three times a week as a kid.

Also, this scene blew my 10 year old mind. The shelter lottery also gave me mad anxiety.
