With 4K Blu-ray becoming the new standard for movie releases, here’s a look at the top five 4K adventure movies to add to your collection.

With 4K becoming more affordable, many movie classics are getting their own re-releases on 4K Blu-ray. Sometimes the movie gets a simple upgrade, and sometimes the movie goes above and beyond with better color grading, HDR, and better surround sound. So here are some of the best 4K adventure movies to test your movie setup and experience classic movies looking better than ever.

Lord of the Rings has never looked so good


Bilbo Baggins from the Lord of the Rings

The Lord of the Rings is a prime example of the capabilities of 4K. Not only were these amazing movies transferred to 4K, but director Peter Jackson helped 4K editing with his take on color grading. The HD Blu-ray edition featured color tones, like yellows and blues, in some scenes to make them look more fantastic. However, with these 4K Blu-rays, the tint is gone and Middle-earth looks more realistic than ever.


4K Blu-ray packs still come with extended editions, which many fans say is the only way to watch the movies. Plus, it has plenty of behind-the-scenes footage that is just as entertaining as the movies themselves.

Harry Potter looks magical in 4K


Harry Potter Ministry of Magic

Not only the Harry potter great movies to watch again, but they also feel completely fresh to watch in 4K. Since films are shot over ten years, the quality of the camera and digital effects improves over time. Still, the early films seem so detailed that it’s easy to assume they were shot today. Where 4K really shines is in the latest movies. For example, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is a dark movie, so HDR really has a chance to show itself by providing deep, satisfying blacks.

While the latest films are the most beautiful, the whole Harry potter The series can be purchased as a complete pack.

Indiana Jones in 4K is a treasure


Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones

Being one of the more recent 4K versions, Indiana Jones benefits massively from the 4K upgrade. Each movie features numerous desert sands and forests, which look great with enhanced sharpness. And the biggest upgrade is for the 1981 The Raiders of the Lost Ark, which no longer looks as flexible as previous versions.

While this may not be preferable for all fans, the Indiana Jones The 4k set also comes with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Despite mixed opinions on the film, there is no denying how beautiful it is in 4K.

Back to the future 4K modernizes movies


Doc Brown from Back to the Future hanging from the clock tower

Although it is ironic, the Back to the future 4K movies seem to have been shot these days. The incredible amount of detail put into these movies is clearer than ever before, and the removal of film grain really increases the realism. Also, the audio has a new Dolby Atmos sound mix, which means the great soundtrack sounds as good as it gets.

The Back to the future movies can only be purchased together in one pack, although this is not surprising given that each movie is a direct continuation of the last.

Spider-Man finally goes 4K


Spider-Man-3-Sandman-disappears

With Spider-Man: No Path Home Fast approaching, now is a good time to catch up on the classics of the early 2000s. In addition to the increased sharpness, films really shine thanks to their new color quality. Most notably, the Spider-Man costume now has a deeper, darker red and blue appearance, which is better than the previous bright red color from the Blu-ray. And overall, the new look focuses on subtle adjustments that make scenes look more realistic, rather than drastically changing colors for fun.

Despite the opinions on Spider-Man 3, every movie is worth watching in 4K. Especially since many characters are about to return in Spider-Man: No Path Home.

Iodine could be a key ingredient in deep space propulsion, and the new Tom Hanks film, Bullfinch, makes an excellent argument for better AI

We also get into two eternal questions: one concerns cats. The other involves aliens. Yeah you read Daily Reverse, a morning portion of brain food from the editorial team of Reverse. I am Nick lucchesi, an editor here. Thank you for being with us!

Before you start – Long-time member of Reverse the spirit of the editorial hive, and someone who shaped a lot of what’s great about this six-year-old operation, is moving forward. Sarah sloat, now Senior Science Editor for Reverse, has held various positions, all of which are integral to what we do. Sarah wrote 2,027 (!!!) articles. Follow Sarah on her new adventures on Twitter at @sarah_sloat_.

Here’s Sarah on her favorite stories:

Some of my personal favorites include when I tried to figure out whether stoning lobsters would allow us to cook them more ethically, and whether or not human consciousness can trace back to ancient humans eating magic mushrooms. I will never forget when an anthropologist told me that the ancient world was basically the Lord of the Rings, or when I learned how the Amazon rainforest and the Caribbean are inextricably linked. My first hit was “What Never Leaving Your Hometown Does To Your Brain” in 2015 and that sort of set the tone for a lot of the mind and body articles we still write today.

It has been such an honor to work with so many smart, funny and empathetic writers. Overall I’m really proud of the way Reverse covered the Covid-19 pandemic, especially as we moved to remote work. Mind & Body is a place to learn real-world ways to live healthier lives and how to navigate the weirdness of being human, science reveals the wonders of our world and what we need to do to protect it, and the innovation shines a light on other worlds and a future just around the corner. I am the biggest fan of all the journalists who make these columns arouse curiosity.

Move in space is costly in terms of money and real resources.

First of all, you need to put your payload into orbit on top of a rocket. Then, whether or not you’re working with a satellite or otherworldly-destined spacecraft, you need to make course corrections and any accelerations, all using the limited amount of thruster you brought with you.

Remember Newton’s third law of motion? If you want to move forward in space, you have to throw something back.

[By Tara Yarlagadda]

it’s been ten years since a fateful event devastated Earth, but Finch is not unhappy.

In fact, he gets along pretty well with his dog, Goodyear, in an underground complex powered by wind farms that shield his home from the intensely hot and dusty atmosphere above.

In the new Apple TV + sci-fi movie, Bullfinch, the main character (played by Tom Hanks), isn’t overly concerned with the past as much as he is concerned with the future. But these aren’t just post-apocalyptic roses: When Finch builds a C3PO-type robot with artificial intelligence and connects it to a local weather station, the AI ​​informs him that a dangerous end-of-the-world storm is coming very soon.

September 5, 1977, the Voyager 1 space probe launched into space. As the mission rolled out of the solar system, NASA wrapped Voyager 1 (and its companion, Voyager 2) with a golden phonograph recording containing sounds and images of Earth that showed the diversity of life on our planet.

The record included sounds of birds and other animals, wind and thunder, greetings in 55 different languages, a study of Earth music, a picture of road traffic in Thailand, and a nursing woman, among other demonstrations of human society.

The package was intended for an advanced interstellar traveling alien civilization that would encounter the Voyager 1 probe.

Maybe you are looking deep in your cat’s eyes, but it’s like meeting a white wall. Or maybe your cat is mysteriously shaking its tail or making some strange clicking sounds. Regardless of the scenario, you are probably stuck with the same thought:

“I have no idea what my cat is thinking.”

If you have thought about it, you are not alone.

Just recently, medieval German folk rockers Feuerschwanz announced their upcoming studio album, Memento Mori. Now Feuerschwanz presents a true ode to life with “Memento Mori”, accompanied by excellent audiovisual, which reveals the secret of the title song of the next feature film.

With singing guitars, “Memento Mori” begins his heroic journey through epic soundscapes. The song emerges as a melodic rock anthem with a familiar medieval character full of blazing guitar riffs and violin solos. Lyrically, Feuerschwanz encourages self-reflection on his own existence in “Memento Mori” and confronts the ephemeral human, following the motto of living life to the fullest – here and now.

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Prinz Hodenherz on the new song: “The title track of the new album is the logical continuation of our previous album Das Elfte Gebot. The saying” Memento Mori “(Latin for” Be aware of mortality “) originated in ancient Rome and was one of the main ideas of High Middle Ages poetry as well as the Vanitas movement of German Romanticism. It is still a frequently cited motif in the visual arts world today In the song, the Gregorian chant “Dies Irae” (Latin for “Day of Wrath”) is quoted with bagpipes, a hurdy-gurdy and Hans’ heavy guitars.

Nerdfact: If you listen carefully, you will also find the central motif of world famous film scores, including the soundtrack of “Lord of the Rings”!
What does all this have to do with Feuerschwanz? Since the creation of the group, it has always been about living here and now and celebrating existence. In ancient Rome, there was a ritual where a slave stood or walked behind the victorious commander during the triumphal procession. He held a golden or laurel wreath on the heads of the victors and continually berated them with the expectation “Memento Mori”. For us, that means: even if you have something to celebrate, it can all be done at any time! That’s kind of what happened to us when we played by far our biggest headlining shows shortly before the pandemic started and our most successful album, Das Elfte Gebot, was released. For us as a group, it was a formative experience that united us even more and allowed us to move forward creatively.
We can’t wait to experience, enjoy and re-capture all the great moments together with our fans on Memento Mori … as if the ferryman is already there.

We invite all those who, like us, thirst for life. “

Memento Mori, the sequel to the hit album Das Elfte Gebot (No. 3 on the German charts), sings about great adventures, past battles and exceptional heroic deeds in typical Feuerschwanz fashion. Feuerschwanz manages to stay true to its hallmarks and, at the same time, to venture musically into new areas.

Feuerschwanz on the new album: “You take nothing with you in your grave, except your coffin … Memento Mori is the direct successor of Die Letzte Schlacht! The world of Hauptmann Feuerschwanz is in flames, overrun with the living dead and flogged by religious fanatics … it all feels terribly real, even in Anno Domini 2021, so it’s time to challenge the storm again and celebrate the life. Live here, live now – until death sharpens its knife! “

As a highlight, some versions of Memento Mori will include a bonus CD with seven covers of Manowar, Amon Amarth, but also O-Zone, among others.

Memento Mori will be available in the following formats:

– 2CD Mediabook + 40 pages booklet

Want to explore strange and foreign lands beyond your wildest dreams? Want to search for ancient treasures, possibly surrounded by death traps that were very complicated to build for one use? Brave enough to see bad guys get their payoff in all kinds of horrible ways because greed, fortune, and fame got the better of them?

Well, it’s dangerous to go it alone and find the best adventure movies, so grab this top-notch list of entrees to enhance your weekend afternoon – or any afternoon, instead. Besides.

Made up of undisputed classics, along with a few more recent incredible journeys, we’ve set up some essential viewing to make sure you don’t waste your time watching anything other than the most exciting offerings, all led by a wide variety of heroes. From mad archaeologists to kind-hearted gardeners, there isn’t a single wrong turn to be found in what would make an exceptional movie marathon. So watch your step (and these recommendations).

What are the best adventure movies of all time?

  • The black crystal
  • To hang up
  • Labyrinth
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
  • Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
  • The Goonies
  • Star Wars: A New Hope
  • The Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • The page master

The Black Crystal (1982)

Even though he was good at creating passionate relationships between talking pigs and frogs, one of Jim Henson’s most important endeavors was adventure, The Dark Crystal. Jen Gelfling’s heroic lonely journey to restore the titular towering monument and fight the iconic, nightmarish Skeksis is a magical watch even now.

Movement stopped: The best animated films

Demonstrating the best of Jim Henson’s workshop, including the stoic urRu and the grueling Fizzgig, The Dark Crystal always shines.

Best Adventure Movies: Robin Williams & Dustin Hoffman in Hook

Hook (1991)

In retrospect, Robin Williams’ Hook looks like a long-lost superhero origin story that dares to fly like no other Peter Pan adaptation has since. The journey of a sweet-mannered father who turns into Pan the Man to save his children is a “terrifyingly grand adventure” that sprinkles a new batch of fairy dust on an iconic character.

Add to that the “twirling villain of Dustin Hoffman,” plus sword fights (and food) set to John Williams’ chest swelling score, and you’ve got a great adventure movie that’s absolutely bangarang!

Best Adventure Movies: Jennifer Connelly in Labyrinth

Maze (1986)

If we are talking about adventure, then we have to talk about the baby. Jim Henson’s other equally insane yet brilliant fantasy film sees Jennifer Connolly trying to save her baby half-brother after wishing him to go to Jareth the Goblin King.

More child-friendly antics: The best children’s films

As David Bowie steals the show as the big-haired ball ride (no, we’re not talking about this codpiece) antagonist of the play, there’s a lot to enjoy elsewhere as well, as Connolly gets lost on this Acid in Wonderland journey alongside a fantastic group of characters imagined by Henson in his prime.

Best Adventure Movies: Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom in Pirates of the Caribbean

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

Want to stretch your sea legs in your quest for danger? You can’t go wrong with Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. Disney’s joker based on one of his famous theme park rides could easily have sunk without Gore Verbinski at the helm and Johnny Depp on board as Captain Jack Sparrow.

Sure, there’s the supporting talent of Kiera Knightley and Orlando Bloom, but Depp still smuggles scenes with ease, rarely having to compete with Geoffrey Rush’s enigmatic Captain Barbossa. An eclectic crew sails, swords and belches through a blockbuster that manages to surprise with almost every turn of the ship’s wheel, it’s still an absolute treasure.

Best Adventure Movies: Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Jack Black and Dwayne Johnson in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

Of all the daring efforts on this list, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has every reason not to work and yet it does. Modernizing an already beloved property and redeveloping it around a superb quartet of characters is not only a great adventure but also one of the best video game movies ever made.

Pass the popcorn: The best family movies

Mixing up Tron and the first round of Jumanji, which starred Robin Williams, Welcome to the Jungle spins at an incredible pace thanks to its huge sets and a self-aware cast for the ride. Changing the game we loved, Welcome to the Jungle has a bit of fun for everyone – yes, even die-hard fans of the first film – and everyone involved clearly has tons of it. Tap Start if you haven’t already.

Best Adventure Movies: Harrison Ford and Sean Connery as Indiana Jones and his Father in The Last Crusade

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)

Some of the greatest adventures are family affairs, and they don’t get any better than Steven Spielberg’s third installment in the Indiana Jones series. If seeing Indy defeat the Nazis and thwart old trials isn’t convincing enough, seeing him confronting his father along the way makes The Last Crusade one of the more polished chapters.

The story goes that Spielberg always had Sean Connery in mind to play the father of the protagonist of Harrison Ford because, as far as he saw him, James Bond was the father of Indiana Jones. It’s a line of thinking that pays off massively, raising the stakes and adding more heart to an already thrilling picture. Choose wisely.

Best Adventure Movies: Elijah Wood, Viggo Mortensen and Ian McKellen as Frodo Baggins, Aragorn and Gandalf

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

Peter Jackson’s perfect introduction to Tolkien’s world, and the One Ring that goes with it, is always a chapter worth revisiting. So many hair-raising lines, so many unforgettable encounters woven together for an epic and perilous adventure in which – exceptionally – the heroes seek to get rid of themselves from a treasure.

Pure adrenaline: The best action movies

Perfectly cast in just about every area, seeing Middle-earth’s mightiest heroes come together always brings chills. Be warned, however; you won’t skip this viewing without pasting the next one right after.

Best Adventure Movies: The Goonies Cast

The Goonies (1985)

A children’s treasure hunt that any youngster would love to do. One-Eyed Willy’s Goonies in Search of Rich Content had such an impact that some of the most popular movies and TV shows are still trying to replicate its success years later.

From the second, Mikey tells his friends the story of a hidden treasure and finds the map that could lead them there, it is a dose of admiration and childhood nostalgia that never fades. If you want to get lost on a Saturday afternoon then the Goonies are really good enough.

Best Adventure Movies: Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill as Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: A New Hope

Star Wars: A New Hope (1977)

The daring first in a series and franchise spanning decades, A New Hope contains all of the crucial ingredients for an adventure. Knights and princesses, thieves and wizards, monsters and talking carpets.

Space! How to watch Star Wars in order

And yet Lucas’ sci-fi vision was unlike anything we had ever seen before. Regardless of what followed, there’s no denying that the young Skywalker’s journey through the stars is one for the ages.

Best Adventure Movies: Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

If the adventure has a name, it must be Indiana Jones. Born from two of the most influential directors of all time, the first Man in the Hat film manages to fill every second with excitement. Raiders of the Lost Ark is not just a phenomenal introduction to the hero who is a hybrid of Han Solo and 007, but just a nearly perfect movie in its entirety.

Harrison Ford’s grumbling good guy takes us on a roller coaster ride, which you never want to get off. Can you honestly imagine the history of cinema without him?

Best Adventure Movies: Macauley Culkin and Oprah Winfrey in The Pagemaster

The Pagemaster (1994)

You’re never alone with a good book, and this crossover of live action and animation is proof of that. When young Richard Tyler (Macauley Culkin) escapes into a library during a thunderstorm, he gets drawn into a mythical animated quest involving some of the finest novels ever written.

Stay classic: The best movies of all time

Three anthropomorphic books, Horror (Frank Welker), Fantasy (Whoopi Goldberg), and Adventure (Patrick Stewart), provide Richard with company on the perilous journey. Joe Johnston of Captain America: The First Avenger did the parts live, while Maurice Hunt did the animated scenes. Classic literary scenes and characters are brought to a bright and colorful life, provided that, as the Pagemaster himself says, anything is possible.

Paramount Pictures

The popcorn is popped. You and the children are snuggled together in front of the television in your comfortable clothes. It’s movie night, and you crave something full of adventure. Well, few adventure films are as fun to watch as Indiana Jones. From storylines to scripts, it’s hard to pick one of these favorite action movies to watch. But sometimes you want something new. Maybe a movie with a little more mystery or something that will leave you passed out? Or a movie with a female lead? Or even a cartoon? Good news! Other films like Indiana Jones exist, similar in all the best ways but different in the ones you won’t see coming.

But what makes the original Indy films the holy grail of cinematic entertainment about Dr. Jones? People still argue to this day about Indiana Jones the movie was the best: The Raiders of the Lost Ark (nineteen eighty one), The doomed temple (1984), The last crusade (1989), or The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008). To state the obvious, Harrison Ford as globe-trotting archaeologist Indy is one of the craziest heroes of all time. The character of Jones symbolizes the epic adventure. He will leave a classroom on a whim to go on an adventure to the other side of the world. Dr Jones is honest, decisive, intellectual and resourceful. Its ability to recall historical information is fascinating. He adapts to any situation – a man who can lecture, defeat ancient traps, and infiltrate Nazi HQ in the blink of an eye. Speaking of hats, Indiana Jones’ hat is perhaps the most famous in movie history. His hat and whip are simply iconic.

Everything he does, he does with conviction. He shouts: “This belongs to a museum!” While fighting treasure hunters on a ship in a storm. And whether it’s giving up the gift of Grail immortality to save his father’s life or fulfilling a promise to make rocks sacred in the Cursed temple, he lives his life with integrity. It’s imperfect, and that makes it accessible. The following films also have main characters who are tough, charismatic, or relatable.

Movies like Indiana Jones to get your dose of adventure

1. The Goonies (1985)

When a real estate development company plans to destroy their home to build a country club, a group of adventurous kids decide to deal with it after discovering an old pirate map in the attic. If they find the treasure, they could keep the house! Teens face many dangerous obstacles as they navigate underground caverns including pirate traps and are pursued by a savage criminal family called the ‘Fratellis’, who recently escaped prison and were hiding in the city. .

This movie is 80s nostalgia. Mouth, Mikey, Data and Chunk each have the personality type of someone we all knew growing up. If you want Indiana Jones, you will certainly recognize Jonathan Ke Quan (who plays Data). He played “Short Round” in the Indiana Jones movies.

2. The Mummy (1999)

For a fun-to-watch, action-packed treasure hunt that always leaves room for some comedic relief, The Mummy is a great choice. A remake of the 1932 film of the same name, the 1999 version follows adventurer Rick O’Connell (played by Brendan Fraser) as he travels to the City of the Dead with a librarian and his older brother. They accidentally wake up a cursed high priest with intense supernatural powers. Chaos ensues.

The Mummy is arguably one of Brendan Fraser’s best roles. Of course, all of the players are pounding. But thanks to the great action throughout, this movie is an entertaining watch.

3. Novelist the stone (1984)

If you took the Indiana Jones series, falsified and placed in Colombia, you would have Novelist the stone. This 1984 action-adventure film stars Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny DeVito. Joan Wilder (Turner) plays a romantic adventure writer who needs help delivering a treasure map to her sister’s kidnappers in the Colombian jungle. She is aided by mercenary Jack Colton (Douglas) as they embark on a dangerous journey. A nice pair, Turner and Douglas also have great chemistry and great dialogue. In fact, they also made a great pair in the sequel, Jewel of the Nile.

4. The Jewel of the Nile (1985)

Michael Douglas reunited with Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito for this 1985 action-adventure romantic comedy sequel to Novelist the stone. As Novelist the stone, this film also opens in one of Joan’s novels. Joan lives with Jack on his yacht until she decides to leave when the leader of a North African nation asks her to visit him and write about him. When Jack finds out that she is in danger, he teams up with Ralph (Danny DeVito) to save her.

5. Jungle cruise (2021)

In this new Disney film, Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) hires mad skipper Frank Wolff (Dwayne Johnson) to explore the Amazon River and the surrounding jungle. They are looking for an ancient magic tree that holds the power to heal. The film is based on the river boat ride at the Disney theme park of the same name.

6. DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp (1990)

Don’t forget to watch Duck tales on TV after coming home from school? DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp is a kid-friendly Disney movie that appeals to adults as well. It combines a similar treasure hunt at the start Duck tales episodes (which often included adventures in an ancient land) and a modern adaptation of Aladdin. In this story, Scrooge McDuck takes Huey, Dewey, and Louie to Egypt in search of a pyramid and a magic lamp.

7. The golden finger (1964)

While investigating smuggling, James Bond uncovers a gold tycoon plot to contaminate the Fort Knox gold reserve. And, seriously, this 1964 spy movie has so much action! The golden finger sets the model of the 007 we know and love today: Auric Goldfinger as the megalomaniac villain, the creepy henchmen, the chart-topping theme song and, of course, the Aston Martin. This car was equipped with 30 caliber machine guns, tire shredding blades and more. And who can forget these famous lines?

“Do you expect me to speak?” “
“No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!” “

8. Laurence of Arabia (1962)

Based on Lieutenant TE Lawrence, this film follows the experiences of the British adventurer and soldier during the First World War. Lawrence (Peter O’Toole) is sent to Arabia to locate Prince Faisal on a mission to serve as a liaison between the British and Arab tribes – often at war – in their mutual fight against the Turks. Peter O’Toole’s performance is timeless and unique.

9. Grave robber (2018)

This list would be incomplete without a little girl power! Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) is the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, Lord Richard Croft (Dominic West). Croft embarks on a dangerous journey to his last known location – a grave on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan. This 2018 film is based on a 2013 video game of the same name and is a reboot of the Grave robber series. The role was made famous in 2001 by Angelina Jolie, but this version is arguably better.

ten. Apocalypto (2006)

By the early 1500s, the Mayan Kingdom was at its peak, a world ruled by oppression and fear. A young hunter named Jaguar Paw is captured and taken on a dangerous journey to a Mayan city for human sacrifice at a time when Mayan civilization is in decline. Produced, co-written and directed by Mel Gibson, this film features a cast of Native American and Native Mexican actors. Not quite a scavenger hunt movie but certainly adrenaline, brain and heart-heavy just like our beloved Indiana Jones.

11. Librarian: Quest for the Spear (2004)

Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) earned 27 graduate degrees. His Egyptology teacher got it very early and he was kicked out of school. But Flynn needs a job, so he starts working at the Metropolitan Public Library. This library contains incredible artifacts like the Ark of the Covenant, Pandora’s Box, and the Golden Goose. When a fragment of the Spear of Doom is suddenly stolen, Flynn is sent to the Amazon to retrieve the pieces. Can this bookworm save the world? This film doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s a family movie that you can watch with anyone between the ages of 4 and 80.

Adventure movies are the ultimate escape. Seriously! It’s literally about leaving your old life behind and escaping somewhere else. Here are the best adventure movies to watch when you too feel like going out.

You know how Belle stands on a hill in The beauty and the Beast and sing “I want adventure somewhere in the open sea! I want it more than I can say!” – then gets stuck in a big house for 80% of the rest of the film? The characters in those movies actually have the lives that Belle dreamed of. In fact, they go on an adventure. Call me Captain Obvious but it’s just something I think of a parcel.

A good adventure movie has several places, maybe even a map (treasure or whatever) to distinguish those places, some kind of quest, and so much hope that it will make your heart explode with anticipation of what the heroes will find during their journey. It could also be action movies, fantasy adventures or sci-fi, and often it is! Check it out.

1

The lost city of Z (2016)

In one of the more classic types of adventure stories, Charlie Hunnam takes on the role of a real-life explorer who has gone in search of an ancient civilization in the Amazon jungle time and time again.

Look now

2

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

Just hearing this iconic musical theme makes me want to run away from home and go on an adventure on the high seas. There is literally swordsmanship in this movie, all of you; it doesn’t get much better than that.

Look now

3

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

I mean, all LOTR the movies are adventure movies, but nothing captures the spirit of the first. When Sam says every step is the furthest from home? That’s the whole story!

Look now

4

Raya and the last dragon (2021)

Disney’s newest animated feature totally deserves to join the other great adventure films. It is about a girl named Raya, voiced by the incomparable Kelly Marie Tran, who finds herself able to save her kingdom and unite her neighbors. She embarks on a quest that becomes quite an adventure.

Look now

5

Principle (2020)

Call it recency bias, but Principle is much more fun than Creation regarding Christopher Nolan’s action and adventure films. Who cares whether or not you have to look at certain diagrams for it to make sense? Principle vibrations only.

Look now

6

furious 7 (2015)

Alright alright alright there are a lot of action and adventure franchises out there and it’s hard to pick just one movie to represent all of them cinematographic worlds. Most people consider Fast Five like the best of the family, but we have to pay homage to the final release of the franchise by Paul Walker and the legend that is “See You Again”.

Look now

7

Back to the future (1985)

Marty McFly unwittingly travels to the past and immediately begins to mess things up for the future. He has to figure out how to get home and how to make sure the house is the same when he gets there. Sometimes accidents make for the best adventures.

Look now

8

Wonder woman (2017)

I’ll try not to list too many DC movies here, no disrespect for Aquaman, but how can you deny the power of the first Wonder woman? Diana comes from the type of place you usually expect to go on an adventure To. His adventure is in our world, for better or for worse.

Look now

9

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Charlize Theron has become one of our most important action stars. In this, she frees a group of once captive women and they lead a chase through an apocalyptic landscape with non-stop action and adventure.

Look now

ten

Black Panther (2018)

The public is the one who goes on an adventure in Black Panther as we travel for the first time in the magical world of Wakanda. The journey that T’Challa pursues, is more of an internal journey as he decides what kind of king he wants to be.

Look now

11

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 (2012)

In the world of dusk, marriage is the greatest adventure of all. Also, this fight of the Volturi. Do I have to say more? No offense but The Avengers, the Justice League, and The X-Men simplyto wish they could go there just as hard.

Look now

12

Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)

This animated Disney adventure is very underrated and Milo Thatch is very sexy. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.

Look now

13

The old guard (2020)

It could be considered a “hidden gem” on Netflix now, but can we all promise to make it trending, like, all the time? The old guard is not just another Charlize Theron vehicle, but it freakin ‘rules. These are immortal rulers who basically work as independent heroes, and they are very exhausted. Is it strangely relatable?

Look now

14

Pacific Rim (2013)

Don’t be fooled by the big monsters and big robots in this movie, it’s all about feelings. Charlie Hunnam (or, as I like to call him, Charlie Nom Nom) and Mako Mori play two pilots who literally need to make an emotional connection in order to power technology to save the world. Pacific Rimthe big heart could compete Ted lasso, but they would probably kiss her instead.

Look now

15

Support me (1986)

It’s controversial, but when it comes to kid-ventures, I think Support me is better than The Goonies. Sorry! They’re both classics, but if I had to pick just one I’d go for the emotional highs and lows of that one.

Look now

16

Savage (2014)

There is nothing magical or epic about the adventure of Reese Witherspoon’s character in this movie, but it’s still an adventure.

Look now

17

The princess to marry (1987)

Team Kissing Books! The Quest to Save Princess Buttercup (played by Robin Wright, who is also a villainous warrior in Wonder woman) is one of the funniest adventures on film.

Look now

18

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

Tag you I’m Magneto lifting a whole stadium and I fly with it just to be spectacular. It’s another time travel adventure, but it’s the best X Men movie. Don’t fight me over this!

Look now

19

Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)

This movie kind of slipped under the radar, but IMO, that was a mistake. It’s so weird and funny, and action packed. Give it another chance. Dane DeHaan’s himbo performance is well worth the price of admission.

Look now

20

Men in black (1997)

Another iconic sci-fi action-adventure comedy (you can never have too many genres) that we don’t talk about enough.

Look now

21

Bourne’s identity (2002)

Some may argue over what Bourne the movie is the best, but the best representation of what these movies are about is the one that started them all. He is an amnesiac assassin in search of himself.

Look now

22

jurassic park (1993)

Which makes jurassic park a good movie is that not a single second seems foreign. The geek loves to hack into computers and she uses these skills to help save the day later! It’s also like … the kind of adventure you really wish you could have until you really, really didn’t.

Look now

23

Romance the stone (1984)

A novelist finds herself on a real romantic adventure to save her captive sister? Oh dear. There’s a treasure map and everything.

Look now

24

Edge of tomorrow (2014)

Tom Cruise has starred in a billion action movies, but he’s generally so calm and cool and serene that it’s a real pleasure to see him troubled by the time-loop adventure he’s in. Edge of tomorrow.

Look now

25

The Raiders of the Lost Ark (nineteen eighty one)

Indiana Jones’ job as a teacher, wearing glasses and wearing a sword hat, makes him the ultimate “find you a man who can do both”, doesn’t it?

Look now

26

The matrix (1999)

It’s like it’s always ago, but The matrix has defined a generation of sci-fi action and adventure fans. BRB, dusting off my impression of Agent Smith before the next sequel drops.

Look now

27

Thief one (2016)

In what may be the hottest take on this list, if you’re looking for a Star wars to scratch your list of adventure movies, make this one. It’s a standalone story with a single focus and a set of memorable characters who, for the most part, aren’t called Skywalker. It’s a bit perfect.

Look now

28

The Mummy (1999)

Has anyone else noticed how crazy people have gone on Brendan Fraser in this movie lately? They are not wrong but …

Look now

29

National treasure (2004)

Plans! Secret tunnels! Secret haunts! Secret stairs! You would think that “the one where Nic Cage steals the Declaration of Independence” wouldn’t be such a great adventure, but it really is.

10 adventure movies you must see before you die https://www.urbanartadventures.com/10-adventure-movies-you-must-see-before-you-die/ https://www.urbanartadventures.com/10-adventure-movies-you-must-see-before-you-die/#respond Fri, 30 Apr 2021 16:30:19 +0000 https://www.urbanartadventures.com/10-adventure-movies-you-must-see-before-you-die/ Adventure movies are often associated with lazy Sunday afternoons and family-friendly food.

Adventure movies are often associated with lazy Sunday afternoons and family-friendly food. That said, there can be some hairy moments in the great classics of the genre. Who hasn’t wanted to run through a jungle with a hat and a golden statue chased by natives with darts after seeing Raiders? Or go exploring strange caves with your best friends like in the Goonies? Here are ten of the best adventure movies …

10. HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON (2010)

A surprise hit when it hit theaters, How To Train Your Dragon had the perfect blend of action, adventure, comedy, and thrill to make it a genre classic. A young Viking boy makes an unlikely friend in a dragon named Toothless and forms a deep bond with him. However, this goes against Viking lore which states that they must kill and defeat every dragon they encounter in battle. The boy’s father, Stoik the Vast (Gerard Butler), is the chief of his village and tries to set an example for his son. However, as the son learns, ignorance does not change easily. Critical and commercial success, the sequel was equally well received.

9. THE ENDLESS STORY (1984)

It’s a plot that’s been recycled more than once – a marginalized young boy is sucked into a fantasy world where he finds himself embroiled in a quest to rid him of an evil that threatens the world. Chronicles of Narnia, The Pagemaster, Jumanji – they all worked on a similar plan. However, what made The Never-ending Story so special was that it wasn’t strength or courage, but imagination that made the world a better place. Also, who hasn’t screamed when the horse falls into the swamp? Or did you want to be friends with Falkor to fly?

8. LABYRINTH (1986)

Aside from the David Bowie trash on display, Labyrinth was a pretty dark movie with very grown-up themes. You had authority figures stealing from kids, a clearly much older Bowie trying to seduce a prepubescent Jennifer Connolly, and a lot of violence for a supposedly family movie. Even by today’s standards, it’s still a bit of a watch. Jim Henson, mastermind of the Muppets, would later say that his poor critical reception demoralized him from making other films. His son, Brian Henson, took over the reins of the company and Jim sadly passed away four years later in 1990.

7. THE LION KING (1994)

The Lion King is closer to a Shakespearean drama than an adventure than anything else. A young prince is supplanted by his villainous uncle in order to take control of a kingdom. Seems familiar? That aside, The Lion King is one of the crown jewels in Disney’s animation catalog. A powerful story with a solid cast, paired with one of the best soundtracks in recent memory and you have a modern classic.

6. BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985)

It did nothing to save the fate of the DeLorean Motor Company, but it sure made everyone want one. Of course, it wasn’t always a DeLorean. Director Robert Zemeckis first came up with the idea that it was a refrigerator. However, studio executives warned him that children could try to copy it by locking themselves in refrigerators after watching the film. Launching the career of Michael J. Fox and giving the world Huey Lewis & The News, Back to the Future’s easy charm and endless lines make it the perfect adventure film. Also, crazy props to Robert Zemeckis for recently saying there would be a remake of this on his corpse. Respect, man. The respect.

5. BROTHER, WHERE ARE YOU? (2000)

People may be more familiar with O Brother’s soundtrack, but it’s based on the oldest adventure of all – Homer’s Odyssey. Three men escape a chain of gangs and set off across the southern United States during the Great Depression in an attempt to make their fortune. Along the way, they meet a guitarist who has sold his soul to the devil, river sirens and a “cyclops” – all to bluegrass and country tunes. Realized with the greatest care and thought by the Coen, O Brother is one of their finest achievements.

4. THE GOONIES (1985)

It’s hard to imagine a movie like The Goonies in today’s culture. On the one hand, this number of children left out without a phone or adult supervision seems unlikely. Nonetheless, Richard Donner’s Children’s Adventure brings back fond memories to anyone who saw it and wanted to find pirate treasure. A group of young people, led by a brave young man who would later embark on another adventure involving a ring (Sean Astin), set out in search of a sunken ship that would help them save their home. However, a criminal family led by one of the most terrifying villains of our childhood wants to get there first. Goonies never say die!

3. CAST AWAY (2000)

A FedEx employee, famous for his productivity and timing, finds himself on an island with an abundance of the one thing he saved: time. The movie lives or dies on the central performance of Tom Hanks, but besides, you really believe he’s all on his own. His physical transformation aside, it’s amazing to see Hanks disappear into the role. Whether it’s mumbling at a volleyball or his first-time fire-making ecstasy, you’re with him for the ride.

2. THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING (2001)

Regardless of what you may think of The Hobbit, the original trilogy of JRR Tolkien’s work is immense in scope, tone, allegory, and length all at the same time. An ancient ring, endowed with powers beyond reasoning, falls into the hands of a hapless young Hobbit who must travel to a distant land to destroy it. Along the way, he will fight the Orcs, Urak-Hai, his own conscience and the dominant evil of his time. Epic in the classic sense, The Lord of the Rings reinvigorated the Hollywood concept of adventure and fantasy, sparking a new interest in the genre that spawned many more.

1. ADVENTURES OF THE LOST ARK (1984)

We vividly remember watching the opening of the Ark of the Covenant and seeing the heads of the Nazis melt cleanly on RTE before the 5pm turn. How no one caught him is amazing, but he stuck with us. Not just for that, be careful. Harrison Ford’s square-jawed performance as a gravedigger archaeologist fueled a generation of would-be stuntmen and made us one of cinema’s greatest heroes. Spielberg’s direction was perfect, moving the story forward with ease. Don’t mention the crystal skull.

The post-apocalyptic thriller I’m a legend It may not have received universal critical acclaim, but its box office success definitely proved it to be a worthy film.

ten The Book of Eli (2010)


Also set in a post-apocalyptic world, Eli’s book takes a more neo-western approach to its script, making it stand out from the crowd of similar dystopian and post-apocalyptic films. With Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman and Mila Kunis among others, it was a box office success.

9 World War II (2013)


A scene from World War Z Brad Pitt

Based on the novel of the same name, it follows a man named Gerry Lane who is a former UN investigator. As the zombie pandemic breaks out, he is tasked with gathering clues to resolve the issue and find the source of the virus.

8 Snowdrops (2013)

RELATED: 10 Coming-Of-Age Comedies To Watch If You Love American Graffiti

Based on a French graphic novel, the story takes place in a world where climate change has made the Earth uninhabitable and frozen its surface. The only surviving humans live on a train that is constantly on the move to avoid freezing, but the inequality in the train leads to a rebellion.

7 The Road (2009)


While not the most well-known film of its genre, The road was a moderate commercial success, but it received positive reviews from critics. Starring Viggo Mortensen in the lead role, it also takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where people try to survive, at all costs.

Based on the novel of the same name, it follows a father and son traveling out to sea as they try to survive and defend themselves.

6 Train to Busan (2016)


Train to Busan

One of the most recent releases from the zombie genre, the South Korean horror action film Train to Busan was a huge international success and broke records, as it became the first Korean film of 2016 that drew over 10 million viewers.

The story is set in South Korea and follows a group of different characters who bond and try to survive together as a zombie epidemic breaks out… while traveling on a train to Busan.

5 On the Edge of Tomorrow (2014)


With Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt in the lead roles, Edge of tomorrow, also known as Live. To die. Repeat, is not a dystopian or post-apocalyptic film per se, but it is about an alien invasion that could potentially destroy the planet and all of its inhabitants.

RELATED: 10 Sci-Fi Horror Movies To Watch If You Love Alien

Based on a Japanese novel, it depicts a world where most of Europe has been invaded by aliens. The main character finds himself stuck in a loop while participating in a landing operation against the invaders, despite having no combat experience.

4 Children of Men (2006)


Film The Children of Men

that of Alfonso Cuarón Children of men is often named as one of the best sci-fi movies of the 21st century – and it really proves it. Set in a dystopian future, it features innovative one-shot action sequences and explores themes such as faith, hope, and redemption.

Adapted from the novel of the same name, it is set in 2027 in the UK where most people are sterile, which has brought society to the brink of collapse. The main character is an official who tries to help a pregnant refugee get to safety.

3 District 9 (2009)


Sharlto Copley in District 9

Neill Blomkamp’s directorial debut, District 9 instantly proved that the director had a lot to offer the science fiction genre. Although made on a modest budget, the film was a critical and commercial success, as it explored topics such as xenophobia and social segregation.

Adapted from Blomkamp’s short, it’s set in Johannesburg, South Africa, which – in this alternate timeline – was invaded by aliens in 1982. Now insectoid aliens have to live with humans.

2 Mad Max Franchise (1979 – 2015)


Imperator Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road fighting a man.

Rejuvenated by the recent Mad Max: Fury Road which starred Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, the Mad Max The franchise remains one of the best examples of Australian cinema. Also set in a dystopian future, it was a huge success and helped launch the careers of director George Miller and actor Mel Gibson.

All four films are set in a dystopian future in which humans fight for essential resources and try to survive, with the protagonist, Mad Max, getting into trouble along the way.

1 The Matrix Trilogy (1999 – 2003)


Keanu Reeves as Neo in The Matrix

With Keanu Reeves in the title role, The matrix was a huge hit in the 90s, so it was inevitable that two more films would be made (and even more are being made now). With its breathtaking cinematography and action sequences, it revolutionized the genre of sci-fi.

The story follows a computer programmer named Thomas Anderson, who secretly operates as a hacker under the pseudonym Neo. To his surprise, he discovers that the world he lives in is not real but is actually a simulation called the Matrix and is controlled by machines using human bodies for energy. After being taken out of the Matrix, he joined the resistance.

Best Adventure Movies To Put On Your Radar In a way, every movie is an adventure – an act of transcendence, an act of surrender to the unknown of a story world, and all that makes it happen. accompanied. When watching a movie, you take the hand of a protagonist without looking around, deciding to follow the journey. Of course, some movie trips are more entertaining than others.

Any hero’s quest comes to a point where he must embrace his call to adventure and step into a new world of wonder and challenge. And, any movie-goer’s experience comes at a time when they must determine whether the first five minutes sound promising enough to pick up their phone and commit. (Look at yourself, you are a vagrant with no phone.)

1. Interstellar

This epic 2014 sci-fi film is catching up with the world in the future and breaking down due to failing crops and constant dust storms. Hoping to save humanity from extinction, the NASA scientist plans to transport people to a new world. Before that happens, however, a team of explorers must traverse a wormhole to find a new place to feel at home.

Interstellar has been acclaimed in many areas including directing, social themes, special effects, acting, and musical score. By comparison, his brilliant design concepts impressed critics.

2. The peanut butter hawk

Shia LaBeouf and Zack Gottsagen played the roles of a local fugitive and a young man with Down’s syndrome who, meeting on the run, developed an unexpected relationship. He left his treatment center determined to pursue his dream future in pro wrestling, and one of his nurses soon met the two friends in general. But she might only become a wonderful third companion.

3. Speed

If you only know Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock from their modern movie appearances, go watch Pace and see why America fell in love with them in the first place. Reeves hasn’t totally let go of his stoner Bill and Ted vibe, but he’s still totally vigilant (and hot) as a renegade officer. Sandra Bullock is a perfect, happy movie. Connect a simple plot – a bus can’t go below 50 miles an hour or it will explode, killing all of its passengers – and you’ve got a crazy, beautiful storyline.

4. Casino Royal

This is Daniel Craig’s first Bond film, and is considered one of the best James Bond films ever made, and does a great job as James Bond. The film is directed by Martin Campbell, who previously directed a Bond movie starring Pierce Brosnan called GoldenEye. The plot of the film – Leap on the task of bankrupt jihadist financier Le Chiffre in a high stakes poker game at Casino Royale in Montenegro; Bond falls in love with femme fatale Vesper Lynd, a treasurer appointed to provide any funds he wants for the game. The film ends with the plot arc that begins in the 2008 sequel, Quantum of Solace.

5. Aquaman

One of the best movies DC has to offer, and it was a huge box office hit that grossed over $ 1,000 billion. Jason Mamoa is the main character of Aquaman and has done a fantastic job. The visual effects in this film set the benchmark in the DCEU, as this film relies heavily on the VFX department to portray aquatic animals, marine life, Atlanteans, and other sea tribes. Besides Mama, Patrick Wilson plays Ocean Master, Amber Heard plays Princess Mera and Nicole Kidman plays Atlanta. So it’s one of DC’s greatest successes in critical and financial terms.

6. Die hard

It is one of the greatest action movies ever made and jokingly known as a Christmas movie since it aired during the holiday season. The film tells us the story of a cop played by Bruce Willis named John Mc Clane who arrives to work things out with his strangled wife Holly. Sadly, the evil genie named Hans Gruber targets the house he lives in, and now it’s up to John to save her and the day. Alan Rickman plays Hans Gruber, who we all recognize as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films. The character of Bruce Mc Clane is still a neglected actor in the world of cinema.

7. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

This epic adventure film, based on the books of J. RR Tolkien, considered the founder of the fantasy genre. It is the fifth greatest film of all time and is renowned for its crisp visual effects, visually processed effects and beautiful New Zealand shots. The plot revolves around Frodo Baggins played by Elijah Wood, a hobbit who goes on an adventure around the world with his pal Samwise played by Sean Astin to take the One Ring of Power to Mount Doom and throw it into flames for avoid the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron. It is a must-have for fans of fantasy and adventure films and the plot ends in the next 2 phases of the film.

8. Jurrasique Park

Another larger-than-life blockbuster from Steven Spielberg, Jurassic Park, continues what would have been predicted if a billionaire had found a way to reinvent amusement park dinosaurs. Surprisingly, even movie billionaires don’t think about the ethics of their latest ventures. What some characters in the film lack in technical know-how, the filming itself makes up for with the practical effects and animatronics that made the standards of the era primitive.

9. Shazam

Shazam is very popular among young DC fans because this movie has a satire and comedy based on a young boy called Billy Batson who is transformed into an adult by uttering a word of Shazam! Zachery Levi is DC’s best cast for the role of Shazam! The film follows Billy Batson, an orphan who has just moved in with his adoptive family. He is chosen as his new hero by the old wizard Shazam and obtains different superpowers. Billy and his best friend Freddy Freeman must learn Billy’s final powers to fight evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivan and the Seven Deadly Sins.

10. Annihilation

In this adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer’s famous climate fiction book, five female scientists fly to Zone X, a mysterious and unknown biological disaster that is destroying the Florida coastline. Starring a star cast of Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez and Oscar Isaac, The Road to the Unknown pushes these scientists beyond the limits of their bodies and integrity.

Adventure movies seem to be a dying breed. The 80s saw many outright adventure films like The Goonies and the Indiana Jones series, but unfortunately Hollywood doesn’t seem to make them like that anymore. Instead, the definition of “adventure film” has morphed over the years to mix primarily with action and spy films, especially those that travel the world, a la James Bond.

Nowadays, action / adventure is much more popular and widespread than simple adventure. Fortunately, these action and adventure films are outstanding pieces of escape entertainment and share much of the DNA of the dedicated adventure films of yesteryear.


ten Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith – 7.5


Lots of people tear up on the Star wars prequels, and in general, they’re often seen as much inferior products to the original trilogy. Corn Revenge of the Sith— the third and final entry in the prequel series is actually pretty good. It sits at 7.5 on IMDb, far ahead of both The phantom menace‘sand Attack of the Clones‘odds.

Many people enjoy the compelling storyline, sense of adventure, and sense of tragedy in the story’s progression and ending.

9 O brother, where are you? – 7.7


George Clooney in O brother where are you

The Coen brothers O brother, where are you? can certainly be considered an adventure film. The film mixes the mythologies of ancient Greece and the southern United States, serving as a loose adaptation of Homer’s film Odyssey.

Odyssey is often regarded as one of the most influential and essential adventure stories ever told, and although O brother, where are you? is obviously not a 1: 1 adaptation, it still contains many of the best aspects of its iconic source material.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

8 Dropped out – 7.8


Nothing more adventurous than a story about a lonely castaway. This Tom Hanks-directed film was absolutely huge, with critical praise and box office counts to match. Tom Hanks’ performance as Chuck Noland was also widely acclaimed, earning him his fifth Oscar nomination, although he lost to Russell Crowe in Gladiator.

Many aspects of the film are still widely referenced and memorized to this day, including the famous fire-lighting sequence and the entirety of Wilson’s “character”. It is a fascinating and wonderfully touching film.

7 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – 7.9


All of the Harry Potter films have been well received, but Prisoner of azkaban is often considered the greatest of all. It was the director Alfonso Cuarón’s only go-around in the Harry potter universe, but its aesthetic changed the look and feel of the films even after its release.

Gone are the fanciful and magical days under Chris Columbus after Prisoner of azkaban, a darker and more adventurous release underscored by Cuarón’s exceptional cinematic style.

6 The ghost – 8.0


By all accounts, The ghost was a real pain to create. Star Leonardo DiCaprio not only risked his health, but many people on the team resigned due to the harsh filming conditions or were outright fired by director Alejandro González Iñárritu for not adapting.

These issues are clearly noticeable through the film itself, as just watching it turns out to be an exercise in patience and horror. It’s a beautifully expansive and adventurous movie, but it’s certainly a tough movie to live with by design.

5 Mad Max: Fury Road – 8.1


Mad Max: Fury Road offers an exciting sense of place and adventure. There is the Citadel of Immortan Joe; the enormous sandstorm in which the characters sink; the rocky and vast canyon with the biker gang; and the epic salt flats that the characters decide to abandon.

And best of all, in between all of these gorgeous locations is some of the best vehicle action ever to be filmed. Maybe the classic adventure film genre isn’t quite dead after all, because Road of fury feels this tradition very much.

4 Avengers: Infinity War – 8.4


There was a lot riding on Infinity war, which is the culmination of ten years of history – and its sizable budget, with some estimates placing it around $ 400 million, promised an unprecedented spectacle on a theatrical screen.

Fortunately, Infinity war delivered in spades. The massive cast was exceptional, as was Thanos’ long-awaited debut as the main antagonist. And then of course there’s the ending, which is undeniably one of the most famous – not to say shocking – endings of the decade.

3 Interstellar – 8.6


Mann and Cooper in Interstellar

It doesn’t get much bigger and more adventurous than Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, a film as epic and confusing as the space itself. The film received surprisingly lukewarm reviews from professional critics, earning it some of the lowest scores in Nolan’s career, although the scores were by no means in the “negative” range.

Most of the criticism came from the film’s general lack of emotion, relying on the splendor and extravagance of a grounded human history. But what splendor and extravagance, especially in its IMAX version.

2 Creation – 8.8


The hallway fight in Inception

Creation is sometimes considered Christopher Nolan’s best work, and for good reason, it brilliantly combines the spectacle he’s so well known for with a tragic human story of grief and guilt. Lots of praise Creation for his seemingly limitless imagination and incredible cinema.

But what does Creation so awesome (and arguably better than Interstellar) is tragic and human history at its heart. This film is as much about overcoming grief as it is about blowing audiences away with the magic of cinema.

1 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King – 8.9


As great as all these movies are, The Lord of the Rings will always remain the king – or the lord? – of the adventure genre. All three films are equally popular and highly rated, but Return of the king is the highest rated of all. This movie does everything a good adventure movie should, including telling an exciting, magnetic story filled with fantastic characters and a vivid imagination.

Even though the film is almost 20 years old, its production has yet to be surpassed. It is a candidate for the best adventure film of all decade – if not the best film, period.
