A mile-wide, 300 miles-per-hour force of total devastation is coming at you! In this adventure swirling with cliffhanging excitement and awesome special effects, Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton play scientists pursuing the most destructive weatherfront to sweep through mid-America’s Tornado Alley in 50 years. By launching electronic sensors into the funnel, the storm chasers hope to obtain data to create an improved warning system. But to do so, they must intercept the twisters’ deadly path. The chase is on! Special Features • Commentary by Director Jan DeBont and Visual Effects Supervisor Stefan Fangmeier • Chasing the Storm: Twister Revisited featurette • The History Channel Documentary Nature Tech: Tornadoes • Anatomy of a Twister • HBO First Look: The Making of Twister • Van Halen Humans Being Music Video • Theatrical Trailers
Twister was a mega-million-dollar blockbuster--helmed by a director (Dutchman Jan de Bont) hot off another scorcher hit (Speed)--that flaunted state-of-the-art digital effects and featured a popular leading actress (Helen Hunt) who would win an Academy Award for her next film (As Good As It Gets). But ask anybody who's seen it and they'll tell you who the real star of Twister is: the cow. Not to give anything away, but the cow is one of those inspired little touches (like, say, Bronson Pinchot's career-making cameo in Beverly Hills Cop) that adds a touch of personality to a gigantic Hollywood production. The story is blown out the window after an impressive prologue in which Hunt's character, as a little girl, witnesses her daddy being sucked into a tornado. Basically, Hunt and Bill Paxton are thrill-seeking meteorologists chasing twisters in order to study them (and help warn people of them, of course) with a new technology they've developed. If you thought the Kansas tornado in The Wizard of Oz was every bit as scary as the Wicked Witch of the West, then this may be the movie for you. --Jim Emerson
Love the movie but there is a spot on the Blu-ray that briefly skips / messes up.Published 5 days ago by caligirl

|Blu-ray or HD DVD||
Buy whichever one is cheaper - they are both the same - just different format discs.

Make sure DRC isn't enable on your Blu-ray player. That limits the soundtrack. After you disable it, it is 100x better.

|Twister Blu-ray - Special Features in HD?||
I doubt it, most special features on 'already on dvd' releases only have standard definition special features.
