Here are seven movies in which tornadoes played a dynamic role:

1. Without the tornado in "The Wizard of Oz," Dorothy never would have gotten to Oz and had the adventures that changed her life.

2. The 2013 prequel "Oz the Great and Powerful" also involved a tornado as the way the wizard originally gets to Oz.

3. Tornadoes the hurl deadly animals at an unsuspecting populace was the premise of the campy "Sharknado," which is not so farfetched as to be impossible, according to Mother Nature Network.

4.
A tornado functioned as the vehicle for the death of Clark Kent’s father in "Man of Steel," although some fans were skeptical that Superman would have really let that happen. Jonathan's sacrifice was seen by some as a betrayal of the comic book characters' core values.

5. In "The Ten Commandments" a pillar of fire representing God went up into the sky and came back down like a fire tornado.

6. Shark Boy and Lava Girl rescued Max’s parents from a twister in the kids’ movie "The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl." But, it was the same tornado that introduced the imaginary heroes to Max, which began his own hero's journey not unlike Dorothy Gale.

7. "Gummo" might be best described as a grotesque in the aftermath of small town devastated by a tornado years after the news crews leave.
