Deep impact or Day After Tomorrow Which movie did you like better?
I saw Deep Impact tonight and Day After Tomorrow about two weeks ago. I liked Day After Tomorrow more because it was pure action throughout the whole movie. There was not as much action in Deep Impact-though there were good story lines such as reconciling and making sacrifices.
Deep Impact was made in 1998 with a giant comet heading towards the earth. Morgan Freeman plays the president. Yes that one is the day after tomorrow. One scene I thought was interesting was a tornado scene that have something like 5 funnels
I think both films have their merits, but The Day After Tomorrow wins it for me. I am a total science geek, so watching all the different experts together in a room was really interesting (even if it is just fiction)
I've seen them both recently too, and I saw them back when they came out. Honestly, Deep Impact made me mildly nervous about the whole earth-killer asteroid thing, where Day After Tomorrow just seemed silly -- both the science of it, and the way the plot unfolded.
I thought both plots were pretty weak, but Deep Impact was a lot more plausible and therefore scarier. Based on that I have to go with Deep Impact. Though, according to a TED lecture I watched recently, it seems like as long as we know its coming we can do something about an incoming asteroid or comet.
