Into the Storm (Blu-ray release 2014-11-18) is yet another disaster movie in which people run for their lives when a natural disaster occurs.  I think the only question is whether this is a better movie than Twister (1996).  Surely progress of technology allows this movie to make even more realistic tornadoes, and it has a much larger scale than before.  When not showing the CG, it uses family melodramas to fill the time.  So, other than the visual effects, the plot or the characters are not particularly interesting.  In these respects, the 1996 predecessor might be better.
