Monday Movie Meme

The Bumbles host the Monday Movie Meme. This week's topic is "The Great Outdoors." Stop by to see their post, and what others are saying.

"Share on your blog movies all about living with nature and then link back here at The Bumbles."

Out of Africa: Meryl Streep and Robert Redford grow coffee and fall in love in the plains of Kenya.

Cold Mountain: Jude Law tramps the war-torn fields of North Carolina, making his way home to Nicole Kidman.

True Grit: John Wayne, Kim Darby and Glen Campbell hunt "the man who shot my pa." Contains one of the great movie exchanges:

Rooster Cogburn: Short feisty fella, nervous and quick, got a messed-up lower lip.
Emmett Quincy: That don't bring nobody to mind. A funny lip?
Rooster Cogburn: Wasn't always like that, I shot him in it.
Emmett Quincy: In the lower lip? What was you aiming at?
Rooster Cogburn: His upper lip.

The African Queen: Bogart and Hepburn fumble down the Ulanga on a hopeless mission to sink a German WWI warship.

  1. Oh - The African Queen! What fun - I haven't seen that one in forever. And Out of Africa epitomizes this topic. I just thought of another one - The Mosquito Coast - have you seen that? Harrison Ford, River Phoenix, Helen Mirren. Go rent it - awesome movie.
