Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Peter Jackson

If you haven’t heard of or watched Lord of the Rings yet, you have obviously been living under a rock. Good news though! You are traveling which means you have escaped the confines of your rock and you will have plenty of time to cover these three epic movies.

Start with The Fellowship of the Ring then watch Twin Towers & finish up your viewing with The Return of the King. The movies are very long but if your flight is long enough you could probably binge watch the entire trilogy.

Harry Potter Film Series

7! 7 Movies in total. Harry Potter will keep you busy for sometime, making this movie series a great one for travelers. Download the series in order and spend your airport downtime diving into the insane world of wizardry and adventure that is Harry Potter.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Bryan Singer

Bohemian Rhapsody is a celebration of Queen! One of the greatest bands of all time with one of the most influential front men to ever stomp the stages. The movie covers the life of Queen but mostly covers the battles faced by front man, Freddie Mercury.

This movie will take you on an emotional rollercoaster leaving you laughing with joy and crying with anguish. Freddie’s life is truly inspiring & this movie is hands down the best I have seen in 5 years!

The Godfather Part I - III

Francis Ford Coppola

You haven’t heard of the Godfather series? Arguably the greatest movie series of all time! Regardless of whether you have seen The Godfather or not, this is one movie series that can be watched over and over and over again.

Like all great movies ‘The Godfather’ is based on a book following the rise of the Corleone family in America. The movie series covers the brutal reality of organised crime. This three part epic will keep you on edge during your next long-haul. Be prepared for some blood & “Say Hello to my little friend!”


James Cameron

I cannot wait for the sequel to this epic!! Avatar will take you into another world and capture your heart and mind at the same time… If you let it. The movie follows the trials of the Na’vi people on the planet Pandora. They fight for their world as humans aim to destroy the planet and pillage the precious resources.

An unexpected alliance forms and it turns into a beautiful love story between two outsiders. This movie will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Well worth the watch!
