Back to Reality (& Movies)
Sometimes movies take us to places beyond our dreams. That’s at least one of the reasons I spend so many hours each year sitting in darkened theaters: for that chance to be transported to worlds far, far away.
And yet sometimes the wonderful world around us provides visuals more amazing than what can be conjured on the big screen. I got a glimpse of that last week over a much-needed vacation (that's Bandon, Oregon, in case you're wondering).
Now the blogger returns from paradise to the real world, which means a return to theaters and to the fantasyland that is film, which means the end of one vacation and the beginning of another: A vacation of the mind. About two hours at a time.
Movie posts to come, but as I’m catching up here’s a question: from movies released last year (to narrow it down a bit), which cinematic world would you most like to visit?
Just one of my votes? Paris. Not from Paris Je T’aime. From Ratatouille. That place looks awesome!
