A Weather Man's 'Independence Day' by DZermeno October 26, 2004 - 12:12 PM PDT

When I asked hubby what he thought about this movie the only thing he said was "I don't need messages in my movies". After thinking about it, I did see his point. The movie shows what happens when we don't take care of the things that we should be taking care of, in a way. Also, the thing that struck me is that it reminded me a lot of 'Independence Day', but instead of aliens making everyone miserable it was the FREEZING cold. Other than those two things, I generally liked the movie. It was entertaining and some scenes where very heart-felt. For an entertaining movie about the human will prevailing over rain, sleet and snow (not to mention a few hungry wolves)
... rent this one
