When you travel, you want to see the sights, eat delicious food, and enjoy quality time with loved ones. And what better way to entertain yourself than watching a movie? From action flicks to classic comedies, here are my recommendations for the best movies to watch when travelling abroad. Let’s see below the best movies to watch when travelling.
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Tim Robbins is an inmate who goes on a hunger strike in prison because he doesn’t agree with his cellmate’s sentence. Frank Darabont’s directorial debut film has received many awards including Best Director at 1996 Academy Awards, 1998 Golden Globes and Directors Guild of America. I love this movie because it shows the difficulties of being locked up behind bars as well as how we all face challenges in life. This film also won the 1994 BAFTA award for “Best British Screenplay” by William Goldman.
Forrest Gump (1994)
Based on the novel by Winston Groom, Forrest Gump tells the story of a simple-minded man who achieves greatness. Tom Hanks was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar Award for portraying Forrest Gump. It’s a wonderful American comedy-drama film that tells us the importance of dreams. In this film, Tom Hanks plays Forrest Gump, a naïve but kindhearted man who does not understand anything regarding his life due to his mental retardation. However, Forrest must overcome his limitations and learn from his mistakes while dealing with the world around him.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Pulp fiction is a crime film directed by Quentin Tarantino, written by Tarantino and Roger Avary, and starring John Travolta, Samuel L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Tim Roth, Vivica A Fox, Christopher Walken, Bruce Willis, Harvey Keitel, Rosanna Arquette, Steve Buscemi, Caroline Goodall, Michael Madsen, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Chris Penn, and Tanya Roberts. After a botched bank robbery, four criminals join forces on their mission: robbery, revenge, retribution and murder. If you are seeking an entertaining crime drama then Pulp Fiction fits the bill. It was released in theatres in 1994 to positive reviews, making over $220 million worldwide during its box office run.
Forrest Gumps Finale – Life Lesson (1996)
Forrest Gump: Life Lesson is a sequel to 1995’s Forrest Gump which takes place 10 years after the events seen in that original story. In this conclusion of the series, Forrest returns home to take part in the second annual race for the Presidency in 1992. Because there is a new sheriff in town, Jenny decides to play matchmaker between Forrest and Bubba’s daughter Tee Jee. But before they can get married, Teena is kidnapped by a group of men led by a mysterious figure named Captain Kangaroo. Only Forrest can save her.
Independence Day/Independence Day Resurgence (2016)
The first Independence Day was directed by Roland Emmerich and produced by Dean Devlin. It stars Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Judd Hirsch, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Gary Oldman, Brent Spiner and Leslie Hope. On July 4th 2026, aliens attack Earth, destroying most of United States cities and causing millions of casualties. An alien spacecraft left near the Moon starts attacking earth every 36 hours. President Whitmore authorizes two independent groups, one led by Army General Shepherd, and the other under Air Force Colonel Marcus Wright, to find out what is going on. While looking into the matter, both teams realize that the true enemy is no longer extraterrestrial but rather the very human nature itself. As Earth falls into chaos once again, people rally together to fight back against the real threat.
In conclusion, These are all great movies produced by Dreamworks Animation. There is something special about them. They were all incredible movies apart from The Da Vinci Code Series, though it did feature amazing acting performances.
