Riding the Heat Wave: 10 Movies to Keep You Cool

Categories: Film and TV

Raise your hand if you're tired of getting burned on that small section on your back between your shirt hem and your belt every time you get in your car, if you're tired of getting up so damn early to go for a run, or if you're tired of eating orange popsicles because your roommate got to all the cherry, grape and lime ones before you did.

Don't let last night's rain fool you. We're going well over 100 degrees every day this weekend.

This weather sucks. And yeah, it sounds like I'm complaining, but I survived the Snowpocalypse without so much as a whimper. At least with cold Midwestern winters you get snow days, hot cocoa and sledding. You also get salt in your pants, the added chore of shoveling snow and cabin fever.

Maybe it is kind of a trade-off, but the fact is that the heat is insufferable right now. So here are ten movies that are bound to keep you cool.

10. Dr. Zhivago

David Lean's classic epic; features lots of lonely Siberian landscapes, howling winds and Communists.

9. Smilla's Sense of Snow

The title says it all.

I was sympathetically FREEZING when I saw the Abyss in the theater.
