There are so many movies set in the cold. SO many. This lineup is far from comprehensive and more than likely won't include some movie you can't believe hasn't been included. This is because a) I tried to not always pick the obvious choices, even though I definitely did a few times and b) you and I may have different taste. Maybe you can't imagine doing a cold-weather-movie marathon without watching Dr. Zhivago. Instead I programmed Out Cold. The world is a rainbow.
Enjoy the lineup!
10 a.m. - The Gold Rush (1925, dir. Charlie Chaplin)
11:45 a.m. - On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969, dir. Peter Hunt)
2:15 p.m. - A Simple Plan (1998, dir. Sam Raimi)
4:30 p.m. - Beach Party (1963, dir. William Asher)
6:15 p.m. - Frozen (2010, dir. Adam Green)
8 p.m. - The Hateful Eight (2015, dir. Quentin Tarantino)
11 p.m. - Ravenous (1999, dir. Antonia Bird)
12:45 a.m. - The Great Silence (1968, dir. Sergio Corbucci)
2:30 a.m. - Blood Tracks (1985, dir. Mats Helge)
4 a.m. - Abominable (2006, dir. Ryan Schifrin)
Tales of Halloween (as well as son of the great composer Lalo Schifrin), but have never seen his sole feature effort Abominable. There is such a shortage of good Abominable Snowman movies that I hope this is one of the exceptions. If nothing else, a cursory Google Image search (for this article) revealed what appears to be a pretty cool monster suit.
6:35 a.m. - Out Cold (2001, dir. Brendan & Emmett Malloy)
Ski School, Ski Patrol, Hot Dog: The Movie -- but I have to go with this, a movie my wife and I saw twice in the same day when it caught us by surprise back in 2001. For every three or four jokes that don't work, there's one that's pure gold. Plus, this is the movie that really put Zach Galifianakis on my radar; he has since gone on to great success and respectability and, I'm guessing, is probably a little embarrassed by his participation in this one. He need not be. Seize the carp.
8 a.m. - Shoot the Piano Player (1960, dir. Francois Truffaut)
9:30 a.m. - Fargo (1996, dir. Joel Coen)
