Monday Movie Meme – Old Man Winter

This week’s movie topic is all about Winter…

This week it’s all about snow, something most people in the country are now very familiar with.  Here are the first five that came to mind.

Doctor Zhivago  It’s not really a favorite of mine, but I loved the winter fashion. 

Alive  This has one of my biggest fears on display, a plane crash.  Oh, and possibly getting eaten by friends.

A Simple Plan  I read the book  first and loved it.  And the movie with Billy Bob Thronton, Bill Paxton and Bridget Fonda shows that the chilly landscape isn’t as desolate as a heart obsessed with money.

Misery I watched this one for the first time only a few years ago and loved it.  Annie was one crazy fan.

Frosty the Snowman A classic.  Just watched it again a few months ago.  Love me some Frosty.

Stop by The Bumbles  and check out other winter movies that are sure to match your white landscape.  Is there a favorite of yours that I’m missing?  Let me know, maybe it’s one I have to see.

    Hey that’s funny – I just helped someone find the name of that movie – A Simple Plan – a few months ago. I’ve never seen it myself but after hearing the plot description and tracking it down I added it to my queue. If I had only known you were familiar with the movie I would have just asked you first and saved myself a lot of search time ;0)

      It’s a really good book. It’s been a few yers since I’ve read it or watched the movie and it’s the book that’s stayed with me.

    Alive is a movie that was very disturbing but also very good.

    A Simple Plan was actually made right in my area! I remember seeing a picture in our local newspaper of Bridget Fonda sitting in one of our local bars with wearing a cheesehead watching the Packer game! lol

    Great choice of Dr. Zhivago – the winter scenes were just gorgeous. I was able to go to Russia in the middle of winter and it really did look just like that sparkly wonderland shown in the movie.

    Great selections! I haven’t seen all of these but Alive was shocking to me at the time. I really liked Misery, the book and the movie. I have A Simple Plan but still haven’t read it yet. Big surprise, huh?

    Another Stephen King creep fest was The Shining. That was a winter movie (and book) that scared the crap out of me! On the opposite end of the spectrum are two holiday favorites, Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story. Obnoxious yes, but still funny!
