When you've consumed all the bread, milk and vegetables that have been snapped up in panic buying from supermarkets across the nation, you might start to get a little stir crazy.

There's a good chance you'll settle down with the tube or Netflix to, erm, chill, and when that's done you might want to watch a movie.

I know we have a couple of movie threads already, but for the day/s that's in it, there might be some snowy themed fillums you can recommend for others to watch from the comfort of their bunkers.

To get the ball rolling two films I always associate with the snow are Trading Places and The Pink Panther. Both will make you laugh until you wet yourself, even if your pee ends up Frozen...

Great movies alright. The lads singing at the club was particularly memorable in TP.

Obviously The Thing and Day of the Outlaw stand out as memorable for lots of sneachta. The latter was on TCM last week or thereabouts. Seriously under-rated.

On a depressing note, Snowtown is a dreary piece of Aus cinema. No sneachta, mind.

Since the current Ice Age set in the smalls, instead of actually getting OUT in the snow, are glued to 'Frozen' instead.

And no - I can't 'Let it go'. I'll have no teeth left from the grinding.

Can someone please suggest a film with a credible snow monster! If this carries on for much longer ...

You could show them Alive, that might shut them up!

Reminds me of my current plight too much. Give me anything about Italy, e.g. those exquisite scenes of The Talented Mr. Ripley, and I warm up a little bit.

Jaysus, I can’t through that scene with the daughter. Donald Sutherland finds it hard too:

We set up a makeshift screening room to watch some of his most iconic performances.

It quickly became clear to us that decades after he's finished a film, the character he's created stays with him. In this scene from the 1973 thriller "Don't Look Now," his character discovers his daughter's body in a pond.

Donald Sutherland: Uh this is gonna be a hard day for me.

There's a very good documentary that's just been uploaded on Netflix. It's called Hitlers Circle of Evil

It is a beautiful film... Eerie yes, but wonderful scenes with the great Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland

From a short story by Daphne du Maurier (as was The Birds. Du Maurier is under-rated imo)

Excellent film. Great catch Mili.

Did you know it was Kevin Costners first big screen role - as the corpse whose burial brought them all together?
It has dated a little, perhaps. Some of the set pieces now seem a tad embarrassing. It was the start of the Boomers' self-obsession

The series Thirtysomething was based on it

I'm not sure how relevant to today's thirty-year-olds is a film where the protagonists are endlessly mulling over the problem of being too successful in advertising, Hollywood, and selling out to The Man
