Top 5 Damn It's Hot Movies

More top five goodness. This one is Top 5 Damn It's Hot Movies.  For a movie to qualify, the heat (or sweltering heat) must play some part in the story - even if it is visual.  Films that take place during summer or in the sun don't count, unless that summer sun is really roasting. Also, the entire movie should take place in the heat, with no scenes of winter/etc...

I found that most of my choices were actually war movies.  We tend to fight a lot of our wars (at least modern wars) in locations with sweltering heat.
  1. City of God
  2. Friday Night Lights
  3. Lord of the Flies
  4. Predator
  5. Kids
Honorable Mentions (I got a lot of them - and I think some of these can be disputed if they can be considered 'damn it's hot'):

Flamingo Kid
Dog Day Afternoon
In America
Lawrence of Arabia
Apocalypse Now
Amores Perros
Cool Hand Luke
Black Hawk Down
Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
Barton Fink
Hurt Locker
12 Angry Men
Laurel Canyon
Laws of Gravity
Sin Nombre
Three Kings
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
Tropic Thunder
White Men Can't Jump
