As we know, movies are made for entertainment value but some have some sort of scientific facts. Even though I can call this a science fiction list, things in some of these movies can actually happen. I know some of these movies have encouraged me to want to know more about the earth and study about the environment that surrounds me. Some are about subjects I love such as the weather, geology, astronomy, and ecology.
Here’s my list:
1.Twister – 1996 film about a woman and her storm chasing team hunting tornadoes and learning more about them after seeing her father die from one when she was a child.
