We put out the call to fellow bloggers about
the best films (both fiction and non-fiction) out there that represent the spirit of adventure and travel, and after
putting together a list of about 20 for each, I honed it down to 10.
These fiction films all have travel and adventure as a theme, and while most are fun, others (i.e. Midnight Express)
are a bit more, shall we say, dark. You may disagree with some of these choices…so feel free to comment and add your
(Catch our top ten NON-fiction list tomorrow).
10. Open Water (dark, scary, but well-done. Always make your dive boat captain remember you!)
9. The Abyss (yes, that last scene is really stupid, but the film still rules)
8. The Eiger Sanction (Clint at his sneering best)
7. Out of Africa (Redford before the whole Noriega scab-face thing)
6. Romancing the Stone (Kathleen Turner in her svelte, sexy days)
5. African Queen (Bogie!)
4. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (come on, bank robbing is an adventure)
3. Midnight Express (do your drugs in country…don’t bring them home…unless you’re into anal rape in a Turkish
2. Apocalypse Now (The horror! Adventure travel into the deepest, darkest recesses of the human soul)
1. Raiders of the Lost Ark (pretty much one of the best movies of all time. period.)
