MONDAY MOVIE MEME
Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Storms...
New England dodged the bullet formerly known as Hurricane Earl this weekend. Other spots weren't as lucky. Better to be prepared for nothing than surprised by the worst. All this non-stop storm coverage got us to thinking about movies featuring stormy weather. Here are some we thought of with storms playing a role in plot development, if not complete characters of their own. Share on your blog movies featuring storms big and small, linking back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
- The Perfect Storm (2000) - This movie basically reiterates why you never mess with Mother Nature. Fictionalized storyline featuring George Clooney and Marky Mark about what happened to real Gloucester fishermen who were lost at sea during a massive Nor'easter.
- The Wizard of Oz (1939) - The tornado that swept away Dorothy and her little dog too always scared me way more than the flying monkeys.
- Cape Fear (1991) - I haven't seen the original. I'm not sure that I want to. After watching Robert De Niro absolutely terrorize my heart while dragging himself onto the boat during a rocky storm to confront the family he wishes to harm, I think I've seen enough thank you very much.
- So I Married An Axe Murderer (1993) - Mike Myers always makes me laugh. Afraid of commitment, he creates some climactic paranoia for himself when a terrible storm traps him at an inn on his honeymoon with his wife who may or may not be an axe murderer.
- Poltergeist (1982) - This movie taught me to count between the lightening and the thunder to tell if the storm was getting closer or moving away. That was the only helpful part. Everything else scared the crap out of me.
