It’s been 21 years since “Twister” (1996) came out and it is amazing how dated the special effects are. With all the computer-generated crap flying at the screen, it is like watching one of today’s bad 3-D movies. And I really liked this movie when it came out. It’s a big sloppy mess of a tornado-chasing action flick, with added bonuses of Helen Hunt in a tank top, Van Halen on the soundtrack and Philip Seymour Hoffman in a scenery-chewing supporting role. And I am a big fan of master storm hunter Bill Paxton (he doesn’t make a bad movie).
