It’s been a heat wave all over and really hitting the Northern Wisconsin and Michigan area. So when it’s too hot to go outside and the pools are over filled staying in the AC is a great idea. To help pass the heat wave here’s a list of films that keep you in the cool.
The Thing from another World (1951)
A sci-fi thriller that is about scientists and Air Force officials who are in Antarctica and an alien who thirsts for blood attacks them. If you’ve seen The Thing this is the original film and it’s worth the watch.
The Gold Rush (1925)
Laughter is the best medicine and who is better than Charlie Chaplin to give you that laughter? The Tramp decides to go to Alaska and find gold while he’s there he falls in love with a girl named Georgia and gets in many situations. A classic Chaplin film that all must see.
The Shining (1980)
Based on Stephen King’s novel with the same name, Jack Torrance and his family go to the Overlook Motel to take care of it during the winter. It’s not just a normal place either; the Overlook Hotel is haunted by the murders of the last caretakers and is known for making people go crazy. A fine creepy performance by Jack Nicholson makes this film very pleasant.
The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965)
It’s a cold and dramatic spy thriller that has one of Richard Burton’s finest performances in it. Burton plays British spy Alec Leamas who refuses to come in from the cold war and go to a normal life. He then goes back in the web of deceit and lies even though he is just a pawn.
Dr. Zhivago (1965)
Dr. Zhivago is an epic David Lean film that took place during the Russian Revolution and had an all star cast. The scenery in this 1960s film is enough to make you freezing.
So that is just the tip of the iceberg of cold cinema that is out there.
