Technicaly...since movies are a form of escapism (as is travelling for me;) ) Wouldn't all movies fit this catagory? They can transport us? Even if only for a few hours....

Technically yes - but that kinda takes the fun out of remembering those movies that really inspired you to venture out of the theater or off the couch. Or, at least left you pining for more vacation time.

Snow is gone here, sun is out, flurried 5 minutes ago but that way it. No wonder you're moving to AZ!

Silverado & The Magnificent Seven

Both great for (backward) time travel - always wanted to ride with Roy Rogers and leave whiny ol' Dale Evans at home.

An perfect dream vacation for me would be east to west coast on horseback, following (what remains) of the old "Wild West" trails. The ultimate trail ride and what a way to see the country. (Giddy-up!)

I have seen so many movies that inspired me to see so much of the word but my old time favorite of course is the classic Indiana Jones.

I just saw a movie-documentary called "Winged Migration" which is the traveling patterns of birds all around the world. You would think that it is the most boring thing to watch but you are a such awe of the birds that you dont even realize how much time has gone by looking at the screen...I highly recommended!

I don't know if you guys have seen it, because it's a French movie, but I really liked "Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain" (I think the English title is just "Amelie"). The story is set in Paris, and overall, nice, light and fresh!!

I'm thinking of stealing someone's garden gnome and taking it with on travels. I'll place him in all the photo booths i find and send pictures back. Love that movie!
