Last night, the kids wanted to watch a movie and their choice was Ice Age Continental Drift.  Looking outside at our bitterly cold January weather I couldn’t help but think this was the wrong movie for such a night.  Even though the movie admittedly doesn’t take place in all icy conditions, it didn’t do much to make me feel warm and cozy!  So – once the kids are in bed – here are five movies to keep you warm in the cold winter months, dreaming of summer days ahead…

Four childhood buddies embark on one last adventure together. (1986)

The_Beach_film
Thailand, a beach, and a mysterious map. And Leonardo DiCaprio. (2000)

Brokedown Palace
Two women vacationing in Thailand are arrested. Claire Danes and Kate Beckinsale showcasing their acting brilliance in one of my favorite movies that I wish got more critical acclaim (1999).

Even though this movie is set in 1963, it brings me back to the summer of 1987 when it was released!

Sweet summer nights, great music, and the movie that made Olivia Newton John and John Travolta timeless! (1978)

Of course, one needs to have the necessities ready for a fantastic winter movie night – popcorn made with my brand new Cuisinart 10 Cup EasyPop Popcorn Maker that I got from SHOP.CA ($69.99 on sale!), a heated blanket, and maybe some licorice for good measure.

The kids love making popcorn with us in this popcorn maker, as it’s fun to watch the popcorn pop-pop-pop!  It’s also healthier than my usual stand-by microwave popcorn!  I find that when we make popcorn in here we don’t add any salt at all (and when you see how much is actually in microwave popcorn…yikes!)

Shipping is free on this item and, as always, you get a huge bonus when you sign up at SHOP.CA: $25 free SHOP.CA rewards on your first $100 purchase!

Here’s hoping Spring is here very soon – regardless of what the groundhog says on February 2nd – and in the meantime stay warm!

    Oh I love these movies! Stand By Me is so good and I am a huge Stephen King fan. Brokedown Palace was a really good story and Clare Danes is awesome in it. I’d love to have your popcorn maker!!! This is probably the nicest one I’ve ever seen. And licorice…I love it! Thanks for this post…it makes me want to put my jammies on!

  2. Stand By Me is one of my go-to movies of all time!! Love it!

  3. Broke down Palace really makes you think about some of the places you travel through.

  4. In the summer my mom and I used go down into the basement and watch Dr Zhivago. Same idea :)
