My Favorite Destruction Movies

I've been in a bit of a book slump this month so I thought I would post my favorite weather related destruction movies. I can't explain it, but I absolutely love this type of movie! I have seen a lot but the below are the ones that sick in my head.

I'm not at a computer (gotta love the world of technology and smart phones)so I cannot link them easily but you can check them out on which is the International Movie Database.

These are classic destruction movies in my mind! Everyone should see them at least once.
- Twister (1996)
- Volcano (1997)
- Armageddon (1998)
- Dante's Peak (1997)
- Day After Tomorrow (2004)
- Perfect Storm (2000)
- 2012 (2009)

The 10.5 movies were made for TV. Since it wasn't made for the theatre some of the special effects are pretty cheesy but I still like the movies!
- 10.5 (2004)
- 10.5 Apocalypse (2006)

These are not my favorites but I like them so I wanted to include them
- Deep Impact (1998)
- Ice Twisters (2009)
- Night of the Twisters (1996)
- Atomic Twister (2002)
- Category 6: Day of Destruction (2004)
- Category 7 (2005) I wasn't the biggest fan of this one but don't let that deter you, you may like it more than I did.

What are your thoughts on destruction movies? Did I miss any good ones?


  1. OH MY GOSH!!!!! I love Twister!!!!! One of my favorite movies! I think I've seen it 25 times, at least!
    I also like Perfect Storm, very sad!
    Day After Tomorrow, another good one.
    I don't think I've seen the rest.

  2. I have seen all of these so many times!! Twister, Volcano and Day After Tomorrow the most probably.

    I should add Armageddon to the list too I think.

  3. I may have sen Volcano, do they have to like go up a mountain, maybe to rescue someone or something, that's all I can remember.
    There must be an earthquake movie and flood movies out there.

  4. Yeah, you're thinking of the same movie!

    I added a couple to my post

    I also found these two but I haven't seen them
    - Aftershock: Earthquake in New York (1999)
    - The Great Los Angeles Earthquake (1990)

  5. No wait, It's Dante's Peak where they go up the mountain.

    Volcano is the one in L.A. with Tommy Lee Jones and Anne Heche.

  6. OH YAY! I saw Dante's Peak!!! That was good!
    Thanks for the B-day wishes babe!

  7. i liked Day After Tomorrow. been meaning to watch 2012.

  8. Great list. I love a good disaster movie! Although I prefer Armageddon, I do like Deep Impact as well.

  9. vvb32 2012 isn't the best of the destruction movies, but it's still worth seeing.

    I'll have to add Deep Impact to my list! Thanks Sondrae!
