Double Feature: TWISTER, 1996, Warner Bros., 113 min. Dir. Jan de Bont. Though on the brink of divorce, husband-and-wife meteorologists Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt work together to test a new storm-warning system, braving some of the most destructive tornados in movie history as they try to stay a step ahead of rival storm chaser Cary Elwes. Oscar-nominated special effects send cows flying through the air and buildings tumbling to the ground in this blockbuster helmed by action specialist Jan de Bont and co-written by Michael Crichton.
MINORITY REPORT, 2002, 20th Century Fox, 145 min. Dir. Steven Spielberg. In 2054, murder has been virtually eliminated in Washington, D.C. by a “pre-crime” unit of the police force that uses three psychics to predict killings before they occur. Stunned to learn that he has been named as a future killer, the unit’s chief, John Anderton (Tom Cruise), goes on the run, tracking down pre-crime creator Dr. Iris Hineman (Lois Smith) and psychic Agatha Lively (Samantha Morton) to find a flaw in the system before he’s captured by his colleagues. Based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, this stunning sci-fi thriller costars Colin Farrell and Max von Sydow. Discussion between films with TWISTER director Jan De Bont and actress Lois Smith.
