The Day After Tomorrow would be horrible if it happened in real life. I watched it in my sophomore chemistry class. Before that, I knew only about the semi-iconic image of the Statue of Liberty buried in snow. The Day After Tomorrow is about a modern ice age. One that starts with unusual storms, followed by several feet of snow. It was at this point I realized that all Roland Emmerich movies were the same. They all have a large ensemble cast, strained relationships, predictable deaths, hero scientists, impossible survival scenes, and love for asian people. The disaster scenes are definitely impressive and exciting. It’s just the characters that are typically 1 dimensional. I usually wonder, with most disaster movies, if I could survive it. I’m not crazy about excessive cold. The Day After Tomorrow should hopefully remain fiction.
