One of the perks of watching great movies is that it can stuff your eyes with wonder, engage your senses, and leave you thinking about things you may not even have thought about before. The best films have this uncanny way of sparking curiosity or inspiring you to explore ideas and places among other things.
Many people have been inspired to travel and visit places featured on the screen. It is easy to get caught in the spirit of adventure and the breathtaking beauty of South America as depicted in the animated movie Up (2009). Eat Pray Love (2010), which was set in various locations like India, Indonesia, and Italy, will make you think about your life, yearn to see some of the places in the story, and perhaps even entertain the idea of setting out on a journey much like the main character did on the film. And if you have watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013), you may have been left with a strong desire to see the world – and start your trip in Iceland to see its stunning scenery.
Movies are often like windows to the world. They provide a glimpse of the beautiful, the ugly, and everything in between that not many people get to see with their own eyes. Sometimes it only takes the right film at the right time to awaken a sense of adventure. And for the many who have been inspired to set off to parts unfamiliar and unknown, watching the films that made them do lead to some of the most unforgettable experiences and memories.
