Abstract

The frequent occurrence of natural disasters and the lack of a spiritual have become major issues for human reflection. As a means of human expression, art and aesthetics should assume the responsibility of saving the crisis of the human body and mind. As one of the typical types of Hollywood, disaster films should convey deeper cultural connotations. However, the Hollywood disaster films with commercial spirit as the core and image technology as the pillar are not enough to inspire human reflection. There are obvious differences in the aesthetic expression of disaster films between China and the West. Both Chinese and Western cultures provide valuable ideological resources for the world to deal with ecological crises. This paper will compare the different development of disaster films in China and the West, and find more ways for the future development of the two cultures. This research is helpful to understand the aesthetics of humans and nature and plays an irreplaceable role in the mutual learning of Chinese and Western aesthetic thoughts.
