List Criteria: Vote for the greatest natural disaster films (in your opinion), regardless of how popular or successful they were at the box office.

Since mother nature is always to be respected, we've created a list the best natural disaster movies of all time for you to rank. Whether the focus is on earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanoes, or all of the above, these are considered to be the top natural disaster films by fans of the genre. The two biggest recent weather disaster films are 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow, but there are many other great movies about natural disasters that are worth watching too. Who can forget about Helen Hunt's performance in the 1996 film Twister? There was also Bruce Willis in 1998's Armageddon, which was poorly reviewed but is still considered a fan favorite.

Vote for your favorites below, but only if you've seen the movie. You can use this natural disaster movies list to find some great new films that you haven't already seen, and full trailers are available on this page for you to check out as well.


Clint Eastwood and Johnny Depp have both directed Natural disaster movies, as have many other great directors.
