Monday Movie Meme- Farms

Feature Presentation…MONDAY MOVIE MEME
This week’s movie topic is all about Farms…
Movies have featured farms and farming forever. Their roles in film have changed and even diminished some as the industry of farming has waned. But there are plenty of examples out there. Here are a few that we thought of. Share on your blog movies that are set on a farm, focus on farmers or reference farming in some way, linking back here so that others can find you.

1. Children of the Corn (1984) was a hit at slumber parties when it came out.  If only to see who would hide in their sleeping bag, who would scream, and who would pretend it wasn’t the creapiest movie ever.
2. Grapes of Wrath (1940) is a the serious side of what happened to farmers during the Great Depression.  A downer of an awesome movie.
3. Footloose (1984) isn’t necessarily a farming movie, but the scene where they play chicken with the tractors is one that came to mind. 
View Image4. Man in the Moon (1991) is a surprisingly good movie.  See it to check out a young Reese Witherspoon.
5. Signs (2002) is a good one.  Who was doing all that damage to the fields?  The answer may surprise you (or not).  This was before Mel Gibson became taboo.

    As I’ve been reading these farm movie posts, I’m surprised at the lack of overlap … I thought there were only so many farm movies out there. And I remember being seriously freaked out by Children of the Corn.

    Oh, how I love “The Man in the Moon” and cannot forget the days when some of my relatives had me watching those “Children of the Corn” movies, lol. Nice list for this week’s Farm theme in the movie meme.

    I tried to watch “Footloose” once since it made Kevin Bacon famous but for some reason, I turned the channel because it seemed boring. I may reconsider watching it one day but have never wanted to watch “The Grapes of Wrath” or “Signs”. “The Sixth Sense” was enough for me! lol.

    Leave it to you to work in Footloose ;0) There was also all those dance lessons Kevin’s body double did in the grain barn so I’d say it fits the topic!
