FRC Is Back!!! Top Camping Movies
That is right kids, The Summer is over and it now time to get back to work, So here we are reporting for duty!
It actually feels pretty good to be back here in the office. To be with my technology, films and a hard roof is very nice indeed. That is not saying that I didn’t have a great time, because I certainly did. The 10 days away from it all was amazing, but now we are here staring down the barrel of the busy part of the year, pumped and ready for action!!
So as an opening post, to get back into the swing of things. Here is my list of Top Camping movies… Enjoy!
(In no particular order)
Carry On Camping
Sid (Sidney James) and his reluctant mate, Bernie (Bernard Bresslaw) hit on the idea of a nudist camping holiday to spice things up with their girlfriends! The arrival of Dr Soaper (Kenneth Williams), headmaster of the Chayste Place Finishing school, his matron, Miss Haggard (Hattie Jacques) in charge of eleven nubile girls including star pupil Babs (Barbara Windsor) set the scene for one of the funniest frolics in the Carry On repertoire.
The Blair Witch Project
The Blair Witch Project follows a trio of filmmakers on what should have been a simple walk in the woods, but quickly becomes an excursion into heart-stopping terror. As the three become inexplicably lost, morale deteriorates, hunger sets in, accusations fly. By night, unseen evil stirs beyond their campfire’s light. By day, chilling ritualistic figures are discovered nearby. As the end of their journey approaches, they realise that what they are filming now is not a legend, but their own descent into unimaginable horror.
Without a Paddle
Seth Green, Matthew Lillard and Dax Shepard star in this offbeat comedy as childhood friends whose lives have drifted apart but must reunite following the sudden death of a fourth friend.
The trio finds out that he was hot on the trail of the $200,000 that vanished with real-life airplane hijacker D.B. Cooper in 1971. After discovering a map left behind, they decide to follow its course to claim the loot. They soon run into a few things that their friend hadn’t planned on, including backwoods pot farmers with itchy trigger fingers, beautiful tree-living hippies and a bear with maternal instincts that knows no bounds!
The Great Outdoors
When an unannounced, uninvited and unwelcome family of fun-loving misfits converge upon a lakeside resort to join their relatives for a summer of relaxation, the result is anything but restful.
It’s a vacationer’s worst nightmare, as wheeler-dealer Aykroyd, his sexually repressed wife and eerie twin daughters ‘join’ the easygoing Candy and his straight-laced clan for a season of ‘fun’ in the sun. Unfortunately, the only thing these two in-laws have in common is their intense dislike for each other. Soon, it’s brother-in-law against brother-in-law in an uproarious and hilarious fight to the finish to see which one really knows how to enjoy ‘The Great Outdoors’.
An overworked Bob Munro, his wife Jaime, their 15-year-old daughter Cassie and 12-year-old son Carl are in desperate need of some quality time together. After promising to take them on a family vacation in Hawaii, Bob abruptly changes plans without telling them. Instead of a week in a tropical paradise, they’re going on a road trip to Colorado in a recreational vehicle. Dragging his wife and kids kicking and screaming into the RV, Bob’s togetherness plan (which is partly a ruse to keep him from losing his job) almost immediately hits a major speed bump. Everything that can go wrong, does. Bob’s lame attempts to navigate the unwieldy, oversized vehicle are met with silence and scorn from his resentful family. The RV life is a far cry from their comfortable life in Los Angeles, and every attempt Bob makes to get them into the spirit of the vacation threatens to tear them further apart. At an RV camp, the Munro family is befriended by the Gornicke family – an irritatingly endearing happy-go-lucky clan of full-time RVers. The more they try to elude the Gornickes, the more their paths seem destined to cross. But adversity has a way of uniting even the most dysfunctional family members and each setback the Munros experience inadvertently helps them become a true family again
Into The Wild
Freshly graduated from college with a promising future ahead, 22-year-old Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch) instead walked out on his privileged life and into the wild in search of adventure. What happened to him on the way transformed this young wanderer into an emerging symbol for countless people. Was Christopher a heroic adventurer or a naive idealist, a rebelious 1990′s Thoreau or another lost American son, a fearless risk-taker or a tragic figure who wrestled with the precious balance between man and nature?
Murray is Tripper, the most creative activites director in the whole North Woods, who guides a fun-seeking collection of lovable campers and libidinous staff members through the unique pleasures of a coed summer experience.
The wildest summer Camp North Star ever had begins quietly with a runaway camper, an accidental blackout and Tripper’s amorous attack on a female counsellor. Insanity builds with the most hilarious Parent’s Day on record, a scary overnight canoe trip, and the Olympiad – a traditional competition between North Star and the rich kids of neighbouring Camp Mohawk.
Friday the 13th
Camp Crystal Lake has a bad history. A history drenched in blood. For over 20 years no-one has disturbed its deathly silence… until now. Often imitated but never equalled, Friday The 13th is a relentless exercise in sustained terror. Unlike the luckless teenagers who go to Camp Crystal Lake, it will live forever as the most shocking film of its kind.
I am now off to visit all of your great websites, how exciting!!
