TOP 10: Best “Movies of the Outdoors”

With summer upon us, and summer being a season that many people love to spend outside as much as they can, I thought it would be fun to do a new top 10 list of movies set primarily outside and where nature figures significantly into their plot or themes. Let me know what you think in the comments!

  1. I haven’t seen all of them but your explanations make sense. What about “The Great Outdoors” with the late John Candy? Not an Oscar movie by any stretch but it is highly entertaining and it captures the outdoor summer theme as well as any. Memorable moment: water skiing off the dock. A few other oldies to think about: Call of the Wild, Castaway…

    1. Yeah I thought about The Great Outdoors right aways just cuz of the name but it just wasn’t a good enough movie for me 😛 Call of the Wild and Castaway I’ve yet to see (or at least review- I watched Castaway a while ago)
