Destination: Get ready to travel to South America

A cute, innocent little boy breaks into the life of a grumpy old man. He reminded the old man about his late wife’s wishes, and they began a flustered but adventurous trip together floating above the rain forests of Venezuela.

The enthusiasm and kindness of the little boy slowly disarmed the old man’s guard during the trip. They also collected a few travel partners on the way, and together they destroyed a crazy criminal group. These two characters have tempers, problems, and obsessions, but they are also cute and goofy at the same time. We highly recommend this movie!

Green book - IMDb 8.2

Destination: Get ready to travel from New York City to Pennsylvania to Memphis to New Orleans.

This film is inspired by the true story in 1962 of a tour of the Deep South by African American classical and jazz pianist Don Shirley and Italian American bouncer Frank “Tony Lip” Vallelonga, who served as Shirley’s driver and bodyguard.

Under the escort of the guardian, a series of racial discrimination took place during their tour.

The setting of the characters is precise, highlighting many elements of duality, black vs. white, heterosexual vs. black, noble and elegant vs. rude, masculine vs. feminine, etc. Watch how two completely different characters developed a meaningful friendship. In their short journey, they allowed each other to understand and grow together. It is a movie that will bring you laughter and also tears.

The Boat That Rocked - IMDb 7.4

Destination: in the middle of the ocean! 

Set in 1966, it tells the story of the fictional pirate radio station "Radio Rock" and its crew of eclectic disc jockeys, who broadcast rock and hip pop music to the United Kingdom from a ship anchored in the North Sea while the British government endeavors to shut them down.

In order to avoid the police, these crazy young people turned an old ship into a radio station. “No Music No Life” from Tower Record would be appropriate to describe their life on the  boat and how they use music to express their feelings and thoughts. 

This movie brings me back to the first time I discovered my favorite songs.

Roman Holiday - Imdb 8.0

Destination: Getting ready to go to Roma!

Overwhelmed by her suffocating schedule, Princess Ann takes off for a night while in Rome and experiences a Rome vacation that she had never thought about. When a sedative she took from her doctor kicks in, she falls asleep on a park bench and is found by an American reporter, Joe Bradley, who takes her back to his apartment for safety. At work the next morning, Joe finds out Ann's regal identity and bets his editor he can get an exclusive interview with her, but romance soon gets in the way.

The gender consciousness 50 years ago is very different from now. You might find the story ridiculous when you re-watch the movie today in 2021. Nothing is PC in this movie. But oh well, Audrey Hepburn is still the style icon after 50 years! That’s all it matters!

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan - IMDb 7.3

Destination: US

This is a pseudo-documentary about a fictional Kazakhstani journalist who travels through the United States to make a documentary that features real-life interactions with Americans. 

Baron Cohen plays the leading role of Borat Sagdiyev. Much of the film features unscripted vignettes of Borat interviewing and interacting with real-life Americans who believe he is a foreigner with little or no understanding of American customs.

Sacha Baron Cohen is an award-winning British comedian. This is the second fictional satirical character he has created. We highly recommend his early works if you love British humor!
