Monday Movie Meme: The Great Outdoors

With all the movies that I have seen, sometimes, I tend to forget the titles of them, yet some scenes sticks in my mind I just couldn't figure out what movie it was...

Anyway, for this week's Great Outdoors theme, here is my list:

The River Wild - A Meryl Streep and Kevin Bacon film. Gail is a professional at water rafting. She twigs every day, and she is in a very good shape. She takes her family, one day, to a rafting trip down the river, but she has no idea that the planed trip is about to become a nightmare. Two escaping robbers with a handgun, meet the family in the way, and join them to the trip. Only later the Gail realize that their new friends are dangerous criminals, but it's too late. The two men force them to stay together, and to keep cruising down the river. The family's life are risked not only by the two men, but also by the river which becomes more stormy and wilder.

Legends of the Fall - Epic tale of three brothers and their father living in the remote wilderness of 1900s USA and how their lives are affected by nature, history, war, and love.

Dances with Wolves - Having been sent to a remote outpost in the wilderness of the Dakota territory during the American Civil War, Lieutenant John Dunbar encounters, and is eventually accepted into, the local Sioux tribe. He is known as "Dances with Wolves" to them and as time passes he becomes enamoured by the beautiful "Stands With a Fist". Not soon after, the frontier becomes the frontier no more, and as the army advances on the plains, John must make a decision that will not only affect him, but also the lives of the natives he now calls his people.

Not sure I've seen the middle one, nothing clicks. Titles don't often help me; but looking at the pictures usually does. Though I have been known to rent a movie we've already seen from time to time. oophs.

River Wild was a good movie, good people; but I love Dances with Wolves...very very good movie.

Thanks for placing my ad, it's appreciated. Hope you'll swing by for a visit, the welcome mats always out.

I'm not sure I get the meme things, but sure have been seeing folks referring to it alot here in blog land.

Great choices! I'm trying to remember if I've seen The River Wild. I can't remember. Isn't that awful? I nearly put Dances with Wolves on my list, but decided against it. It's a great movie.

I love going through and looking at everyone's choices. I'd forgotten about these! I love "Legends of the Fall." Brad Pitt AND Aidan Quinn.
