I watched the movie "Out of Africa." with Meryl Streep, and Robert Redford last night for maybe the fourth time, not a good thing to do, when Bah my Ivory Coast girlfriend is there, and I am here, I truly miss her.
My list of 21 best travel movies --- or the list of movies I have watched and included in the review: Best Travel Movies
I have 44 more to watch, then include, and I am sure the list will continue to grow.
Trying to be serious about Best Travel Movies reviews.
Most reviews are close to worthless, unless done by an obsessed person, therefore to write travel reviews for the Best Travel Movies, a person needs to be obsessed about:
2. Watching Movies
3rd, the person needs access to all the movies to review, which is an incredibly difficult feat to accomplish, especially for real travelers who are obsessed with travel. I cannot just go rent the movie, any obsessed traveler has a huge problem. If they can just go rent a movie, then they are not an obsessed traveler. (Addicted to Travel.)
I get the movies through nefarious means, hehehe
Then, the person has to have a place to post their reviews, maybe a newspaper, magazine of on an Internet page. But also let us be real, this is just the Best Travel Movies in the English language, I am not going to learn German to review movies. But I am now capable with the Spanish and French ones, but still a rather un-enjoyable experience.
How to allow Pro Travelers to Review movies?
I have a list now of maybe 17-21 Pro or Expert Travelers, maybe two of them are not obsessed and should be disqualified. But the other 19 are definitely my type of traveler, they travel in the same style as me, or close and have a clue why they or other people travel. And could identify these aspects while watching a movie…
List of Pro Travelers:
A pro traveler can explain long list of reasons why people travel, they can tell you the underlying reasons why people travel the world, and why a travel destination is good or bad. Generally, these Pros do not fall for great marketing packages, they chose their locations with a lot of wanderlust involved, serendipity and time, not by reading travel brochures and guidebooks, written by people who are not Pro Travelers. I believe this growing group are best qualified to review travel movies, and identify the aspects of the movie that are travel identifiers, and not just drama or comedy.
The problem is they are travelers, they cannot just go rent movies.
