So, I can’t watch one without the other so today I went for Category 7. It’s not as good as the first but this one has something the other one doesn’t… Gina Gershon and Shannen Doherty. Love those two girls… Likeable characters too. That being said, this movie sequel has a lot more annoying characters and not enough karma. The biggest douche of the movie survived and got almost a happy ending even (like i’m gonna forgive him because he hurt his leg….right).
Of course since the movie went with a end of the world theme they had to add a religious element to the movie. What a waste of movie time that was… tho seeing James Brolin as a preaching fellow for a megachurch was kind of a goof. The throw in the gorgeous Lindy Booth playing an annoyingly stupid reporter with a big heart and poof you get the only reason you could forgive the storyline. I guess they felt the reporter of this movie needed another kind of focus point so it didn’t feel to similar to the previous flick… personally I’d go for the similar over this but hey that’s me…
The only thing the two movies have in common really is the mention of Chicago and Randy Quaid. I love that Randy is back in this and teamed up with Shannen. It’s actually the thing I like the most about this movie besides the storm and tornado visuals. Now I’ve read a lot of crap getting thrown at these two movies from people picking it apart cause of facts and yada yadas.. it must be boring being a person finding flaws in movies like that instead of just enjoying it. I’m sure you can nitpick any movie ever made… i don’t really chose to do so… well, i can complain about the cuntiness of characters but that’s movie related ain’t it ? See, there I go digressing yet again… I love disaster movies, i get annoyed when people talk smack about them. Sure, this are far from a perferct movie but it’s the 2nd or 3rd time I watch it and i enjoy it every time. Same director as the previous movie, Dick Lowry.
..I rate this movie 5/10 stars..
