It’s a rainy day outside. You’re sick of the weather and bored with your reading material. Why not throw a movie on to kill the time?
When it comes to choosing a flick that corresponds with the weather, some come to mind more immediately than others. So here is a film guide to 10 of the top movies that tie in with a rainy day.
10. THE CROW – action and thrills in Los Angeles. Not a lot of rain, but the storm complements the action on a night of good and evil. Recommended viewing.
- SE7EN – an outrageous mix of action, horror and thriller. Suspenseful, with plenty of scares – set in a city that is forever cursed by the presence of rain.
- JURASSIC PARK – another action adventure for dinosaur lovers and action fans alike. Again, not a lot of rainy scenes – but some of the more memorable scenes take place in the rain.
- THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW – an action adventure, with plenty of water crisis and carnage. Highly recommended for fans of Waterworld.
- WATERWORLD – set in a post-apocalyptic setting after the events of global warming, where humans cannot live on land and must survive on the water. Plenty of action as the characters endure harsh storms on the ocean.
- BLADE RUNNER – one of the best science-fiction films ever made, and almost entirely set in the rain over the course of one night. Plenty of wet scenes and action.
- DAREDEVIL – a blind hero who relies on the sense of sound. He overcomes the dangers that struck his city by using the droplets of rain to echo the actions of criminals and put a stop to them.
- SIN CITY – an action thriller in the vein of Quentin Tarantino films. Plenty of rain and wet scenes through the black-and-white, the film predominantly contains such scenes.
- SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN – one of the classical musicals from 1952. As the title suggests, the movie is entirely set in the rain. A must-see for lovers of classical musicals.
And the number one film on our list is…
- THE PERFECT STORM – a must-see action drama set entirely on the water. Everybody dies in the end, but the plot and action are pretty awesome.
