  • Into the storm

  • Being from Oklahoma, you would think I would be used to seeing tornadoes. Honestly, I don’t think I ever will get used to it. They are my biggest fear. Luckily, Oklahomans were able to have a break this season.

  • Being from Oklahoma, you would think I would be used to seeing tornadoes. Honestly, I don’t think I ever will get used to it. They are my biggest fear. Luckily, Oklahomans were able to have a break this season.
    With that said, I recently went to see a new movie in theaters called “Into the Storm.” You may ask, why pay to go see your biggest fear? Well, they say to face your fears right?
    When I saw the trailer a few months ago, I immediately knew I was going to go see that on opening weekend; and I did. I’m not a big fan of disaster movies, because I become paranoid and over think things sometimes.
    One of the great things about this movie is, it is not extremely long. Recently, it has been hard to go see a movie and have to sit there for more than two hours; and all at the same time keep your attention on the screen. It’s hard for myself anyways.
    With it being a disaster movie about tornadoes, I expected them to have used real cities. I’m going to try not to give any of the major details away.
    What I mean by real cities is they based the story line in Silverton, Oklahoma. Now, I have never heard of Silverton, Oklahoma, so naturally I went to Google for help. According to Google, there is no such city called, Silverton in the state of Oklahoma.
    This obviously does bother me, or I wouldn’t have mentioned it. I feel like if you are going to use the state, use one of the state’s actual cities also.
    I have noticed many mistakes made in the movie, but I’ll let you all watch it for yourselves to see if you’ll notice them. I definitely wouldn’t recommend someone to spend $8 to go see this movie in theaters; it’s more of a rental.
    There are many positives about the movie also. I don’t want to take away from the rest of the movie. The special effects were great, and the rest of the story line was pretty-well written, just not big blockbuster status.
