You know it’s too warm and humid when you’re breaking a sweat without performing any tasks whatsoever. That sums up the majority of the last few days, which brings us to the theme for this week’s Monday Movie Meme; influenced by the spring showers that have finally graced the northeast today – bringing with it some much needed relief: Slippery When Wet.
Share on your blog or in the comments section, movies featuring scenes that contain rainfall. It doesn’t have to necessarily be a torrential downpour but there should be enough precipitation to warrant the use of an umbrella. Here are my selections for this week’s Slippery When Wet theme.
Road to Perdition
The bloody climax of this movie is filled with enough raindrops to fill a swimming pool. That’s all I have to say right now about this crime thriller (starring Tom Hanks, Paul Newman and Daniel Craig) about a hitman who works for an Irish mobster. If you haven’t watched this film, I highly recommend it!
There is a rainy scene where two storm chasers are fighting in the middle of the road, which leads to a huge wakeup call for multiple parties involved, in this disaster flick (starring Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton and Philip Seymour Hoffman) about scientists trying to invent an advanced weather alert system.
One of the most epic on-screen kisses just so happens to take place when it’s raining, in this romantic drama (starring Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams, Gina Rowland and James Garner) about two lovebirds from different sides of the tracks.
No Good Deed
It’s raining when a former district attorney gets a life-changing visit, in this crime thriller (starring Taraji P. Henson and Idris Elba) about an escaped convict who wreaks havoc on a mother and her loved ones.
