Travel Through Film

Sometimes the best vacations are on your own couch. Here are some great journeys in movies to get the feeling of an adventure while in the comfort of your own home.

Wild Hogs — Like any good travel movie, this film shows that it's the journey, not the destination.

Fear and loathing in Las Vegas — When packing for a trip, some people have different priorities than others. An ether frolic of a movie, from the mind of Hunter S. Thompson.

O brother, where art thou? — A modern-ish adaptation of Homer's Odyssey, the ultimate travel epic. Watch out for the catchy soundtrack.

Up in the air — From what I've gathered (having not seen it yet), George Clooney flies around a lot. Sounds like a travel movie to me.

Back to the future: the complete trilogy — A different kind of travel. Time travel counts. It doesn't get much better than BTTF.

National Lampoon's vacation — A required fixture on any travel film list.

Catch me if you canThe book is really good, and this film lives up to it. Lots of action, and a great dynamic between Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio.

The beach — Speaking of Leo, here's a slightly-different journey to Thailand and beyond.

Airplane! — An absolutely hilarious movie. Did you know it was a spoof remake of a 1950s film, Zero Hour?
