Movies are always great to make you feel inspired and make you want to travel or perhaps your already got a holiday coming up and need to find some movies to take on a long plane ride but there’s so many to choose from! Here’s a few of my top suggestions that will help inspire you.
1.Lord Of The Rings & The Hobbit trilogies
These trilogies are at the top of my list Peter Jackson has done a superb job on them and is now a New Zealand icon! If you want to go to NZ this is a great movie to watch so many great views and of course The Shire itself . We see Frodo and Bilbo grow from being those simple hobbits to heroes . With sword fights, mythological characters, amazing filming and all based in NZ it’s a must see
2. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
Starring Ben Stiller this film is about your average jo coming to terms with the fact that “he hasn’t been anywhere or done anything” but that’s all about to change on this adventure of a lifetime . Now I really don’t want to give too much away but let me just say his global journey turns into a one of a kind adventure – if you havnt seen this movie then what are you waiting for?!
3. Wild America
This is one of those epic movies from my childhood . 3 brothers go off on a road trip adventure to film wild life- the kind many others were to scared to see. If these guys were around in real life 2016 they would be the ones with the 1 mil views on YouTube. American out back, adrenaline junkies, comedy that will have you laughing through the whole movie. It may have been made 20 or so years ago but it’s definitely not one to forget
Ever seen Just Married? Well this is kinda similar . Story goes a woman who is tired of waiting for her boyfriend to purpose decides to take matters into her own hands and follows the Celtic tradition of on 29 Feb a woman is allowed to purpose to her partner. So she goes to Dublin to make her dreams come true and purpose but life has a different plan for her when she winds up on the other end of the country where she meets Declan the man who helps her yet they can’t stand each other.. A rom-com film all placed in Ireland
5.Indiana Jones Movies Series
Indiana Jones is one of the ultimate travellers. See this archaeologists traveller to various places around the world, searching mysterious and ancient places. This is want a lot of gamers and others would want there life’s to be like. Every movie a new adventure and something to solve.
Now a French icon this movie is a must see for Paris lovers. Placed in a French “burlesque’ vibe nightclub a poet played by Ewan Mcgregor is thrown into a unexpected world and meeting the clubs most famous star Satine played by Nicole Kidman. Burlesque meets musical meets France meets a fantasy world this movie will get your travel urge moving you will finish up wanting to book tickets to the real Moulin Rouge club in Paris.
See Queen Latifah as Georgia a overly cautious saleswoman who finds out she has a terminal illness who decides to take out savings and go a trip to Europe and lives like a millionaire – seriously who doesn’t want to do that ?!
8. Just Married
A newly married couple goes on their honeymoon to Europe where they will face all sorts of obstacles including a broken down hotel and running into a ex-boyfriend .Ashton and Brittany murphy make this a hilarious couple to watch get themselves into trouble in a foreign county.
Based on a true story of one families survival in the devastating 2004 tsunami that occurred in Thailand. Relaxing on a beach just after Christmas on December 26 a natural disaster strikes.
10.Julie & Julia
Bored with her everyday job Julie Powell(Amy Adams) takes matters into own hands and starts a blog where she vows to prepare all 524 recipes of Chef Julia Child (Meryl Streep). Throughout the movie although both characters are in quite different situations and times, we see them both develop and grow with their common love for cooking.
These are just 10 recommendations there’s many more as well such as Without A Paddle, Chasing Liberty and even some of our favourite Disney classics which I’m sure I will discuss in a future post .
