Four Movies About a Frozen World

ICE AGESummer’s here and we’re all enjoying the hot weather, but as the winter approaches we’ll start throwing on the woolly jumpers and pumping up the thermostat. Of course, a great way to stave off the cold is with space heaters, and you just have to locate the perfect source to find them. There are plenty of movies about weather, from Volcano to Dante’s Peak, but what about those stone cold movies featuring ice, snow and all things frigid? Well, here’s out pick of the top four movies featuring the cold.

–       Ice age, 2002

This film premiered in 2002 and features a woolly mammoth, a sabre toothed tiger, a sloth, and a little baby human. For all its coldness, it was truly heart warming and has since spawned a whole franchise. If you have kids, or want an easy going movie to watch on a lazy weekend, then this is the one. And of course how can we forget the nut-crazy Scrat?

–       Day After Tomorrow, 2004

Laden with a heavy dose of geo-politics, directed by Roland Emmerich and featuring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ian Holm, this movie looked like it was going to rock the box office. Unfortunately, the story got a little bogged down under all that ice, but the special effects were pretty top notch and it’s always a pleasure to see entire cities succumb to frantic ice storms!

–       Frozen, 2013

There’s not much to say about this movie except: Wow, yes, more please. One of the greatest Disney movies released since the Lion King, it topped the box offices and set up all aglow. Two sisters battle to remember why they love each other, and one is an Ice Queen brought to life with the wonderful voice of Idina Menzel! Thank you very kindly, we’ll have another one of those with a side of the soundtrack.

–       The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, 2005

Another Ice Queen, this time in the form of Tilda Swinton. This movie broke new ground for special effects and really brought C. S. Lewis’s novel to life. Can’t say much about the sequels, but this one was jam packed with action, drama, thrills, humour and just the right about of sadness. Always winter, but never Christmas. Well, at least until the four Pevensie enter the picture. Oh yeah, and Liam Neeson voices Aslan for the w in.

Watching some of these frozen movies might be making you cold, so check out these infrared heaters for the winter.
