I am starting to wonder if my addiction has taken a whole new level! I have been watching a lot of movies about traveling lately. Like all I do is to think about that next big adventure.. anyways, here is a list of my top ten travel movies.10. Around the world in 80 days
The 2004 Jackie Chan movie where a British inventor takes the bet on getting around the world in eighty days.
Its not the greatest movie ever made, the plot is old and you kinda get what you expect, but Jackies kung fu fun saves a lot and it defently has a place on my list as they travel and let you see great parts of the world.
A grumpy elderly father heads overseas to recover the body of his adventurous son who died while traveling the “El camino de Santiago” also known as the “way of St. James”, and decides to take the pilgrimage himself. The movie kind of reminds me of the wizard of Oz as the old man meets up with these different characters along the way. It is both charming and inspiring as you grow in person with the old man during the miles of miles of walking.8. Up in the air
With a job that has him traveling around the country firing people, Ryan Bingham played by the womanizer George Clooney leads an empty life out of a suitcase, until his company does the unexpected: ground him.
American journalist Paul Kemp takes on a freelance job in Puerto Rico for a local newspaper during the 1960s and struggles to find a balance between island culture and the expatriates who live there. Based on an early novel by American writer Hunter S. Thompson who also wrote fear and loathing in Las Vegas. I enjoyed the amount of fuckedupness and recklessness this movie contained. Loved it!6. The beach
Yes well..ofcourse do I have the beach on my list.. chocker! For you who do not know what I am talking about, this movie is like the most well known travel movie of our times. Twenty-something Richard played by a 90′s version of Leonardo DiCaprio who travels to Thailand and finds himself in possession of a strange map. Rumours state that it leads to a solitary beach paradise, a tropical bliss – excited and intrigued, he sets out to find it. Its a beautiful movie. It is Thailand!5. The terminal
A 2004 American comedy-drama film directed by Steven Spielberg starring Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It is about a man from Krakozhia who becomes trapped in New York City’s JFK International Airport terminal when he is denied entry into the United States and at the same time cannot return to his native country due to a revolution. The movie is based on a true story! And the character of Tom Hanks is a nutshell, so difficult to understand but so easy to love. A travelers number one comedy.4. Seven years in Tibet
True story of Heinrich Harrer, played by a blue-eyed blond Brad Pitt, an Austrian mountain climber who became friends with the Dalai Lama at the time of China’s takeover of Tibet.
On this “On the road”-style adventure we get to know Che Guevara and Alberto something something as they drive through South-America on their motorcycle. With everything you’d want from such a film: laughs, kicks, adventures, poetry, natural beauty, strange encounters and friendship tested and strengthened.
This is one of the most moving and heartblowing movies I have ever seen. It fucking speaks to me! After graduating from University, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandons his possessions, gives his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhikes to Alaska to live in the wilderness.
1. The secret life of Walter Mitty
He also takes the name of ”Supertramp”, Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that shape his life. An interesting TRUE story of a young guy disgusted and repulsed by our modern world and our selfish ways. The movie is about 2.5 hours long, it has its slower moments, but I never faded out of the story! Spellbinding!
I am not a big fan of Ben Stiller movies, but this one turned out to be one of my favorite movies of all time. Ben Stiller both directs and takes the leading role as Walter Mitty. Walter lives life through his daydreams, but when his job in LIFE magazine along with his co-workers are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.
I believe we all have our moments when we gaze away. Drifting through space and time, wishing that we lived a more exciting life. Well this movie is about turning your grey and boring life into something colorful and fulfilling. Loved every second of it!
