So! I'm going to stop complaining about the weather now and get to the point of this post. I figured if I had to endure winter weather outside, I should think about happy stuff while inside! And what's better than cute and fun movies? Here's my list of a few movies I enjoy that feature snow in them. (If I can't beat the weather, I might as well figure out a way to tolerate it, right? ;)
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
Having been a big fan of the book series by C.S. Lewis for several years now, I was thrilled to hear they were going to put them on the big screen! And this one is still my favorite of the three they've adapted. I thought the screenwriter(s?) did a fantastic job of staying true to the original story. And I absolutely loved seeing Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy come to life on the screen. And Mr. Tumnus! And of course, Aslan!!! I'd never thought about how comforting and awesome Liam Neeson's voice is, but hearing him speak for Aslan was brilliant. And to see Narnia and all the characters was simply lovely! I've watched this one several times and it never gets old. Now I'm thinking I need to do a reread of the series again soon.
New In Town
This one just never fails to make me laugh! Renee Zellweger is just so good at playing Lucy. And Harry Connick, Jr.? Pardon me while I swoon. I admit I quite like him with a little scruff! ;) Plus I'm thinking that if I watch this one again, it'll remind me that the snow I'm currently digging my way out of is nowhere near the same level as those in Minnesota have to deal with! Nothing like a little comparison to make you feel better about yourself, right?
While You Were Sleeping
I love this movie!!! Sandra and Bill are simply too cute together. And there's this scene where they're trying to help each other across the slippery ice on the sidewalk and they keep falling and laughing and yeah. It's adorable! Watching these two fall in love is seriously sweet and all kinds of awesome. Did I mention how much I love this movie? ;)
Both couples are very sweet, but Iris and Miles? They're my favorite! Well, except for Arthur, the legendary screenwriter living right next door. I love how he and Iris take each other under their wings. Both are so lost and trying to find themselves again and how much their friendship changes them and helps them to open up and take chances is just so very lovely. Plus I would love to visit Iris' little English cottage! It's delightful.
Queen Latifah is fabulous! Watching Georgia burst out of her shell and start taking charge of her life is wonderful. And to do it at an awesome resort in Czechoslovakia? That place looks amazing! This movie just makes me grin. Filled with laughter of course, but there are so many sweet and touching moments. It really is a "feel good movie". I just have a soft spot for this story.
And there you have it! I realize there are many others I probably could have listed, but I figured five was a good number. Are there any you'd like to add to this list? :)
