Winter in July

Now that the rain has finally slowed down, the South Carolina heat and humidity is starting to make its presence known. Famously hot is right!

When you just can't take anymore, it's time to cool off with some movies set in times and places so cold, you can't help but shiver. They'll help remind you that, before long, we'll be complaining about the cold instead of the heat.

Here are some of my favorite set-in-winter flicks.

AmazonKrista Says: The heartwarming and, at times, heartbreaking story of empire penguins and their struggle for survival in one of the coldest places on Earth. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, this is one of my favorite movies. No way you can watch those penguins huddled in a circle and not feel a little chilly in sympathy.

Amazon Says: In the Antarctic, every March since the beginning of time, the quest begins to find the perfect mate and start a family. This courtship will begin with a long journey - a journey that will take them hundreds of miles across the continent by foot, in freezing cold temperatures, in brittle, icy winds and through deep, treacherous waters. They will risk starvation and attack by dangerous predators, under the harshest conditions on earth, all to find true love.

AmazonKrista Says: A little tip of the hat here to my sister, who made me sit through this movie so many times during our childhood that I eventually began to like it. To today's watcher it may seem silly or corny, but it is a classic for a reason. Perfect with a cup of hot chocolate.

Amazon Says: White Christmas is a 1954 Technicolor musical film starring Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye that features the songs of Irving Berlin, including the titular "White Christmas." The film was directed by Michael Curtiz and co-stars Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. It was distributed by Paramount Pictures. The film is notable as being the first to be produced and released in VistaVision, a wide-screen process developed by Paramount that entailed using twice the surface area of standard 35mm film. This large-area negative was used to yield finer-grained standard-sized 35 mm film prints. less...

AmazonKrista Says: This movie is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me, and I understand if that makes you judge me. But I love it. It's silly and fun and romantic and has the greatest ugly Christmas sweaters.
