Have you read a book or seen a movie, that made you nervous about travel, or nervous about travel to a particular place, or a particular mode of travel?
I would suppose that watching the movie "Alive" about that soccor team that crashed in the mountains wouldn't be a good thing to do while flying.

William, you hit the nail on the head there. I had forgotten about that movie until you mentioned it, but wow, when I thought of it I had to agree with you. *shivers*
BTW, I hope that you make it out to SF. The Binkleys and I were talking about you at the North American TB dinner and how you almost made it to join us.
Oh I just watched the movie Contagion and cant stop thinking how I stupidly put a sandwich on a table at Jakarta airport...this movie really got me thinking about travelling and viral outbreaks. Scary!
I would love movies like "Flight Plan" while in the trip
Theres a movie with jodie foster and her kid gets kidnapped while on the plane/ or she imagines the entire thing...either way...that would be very freaky and certainly wont help me attempt to sleep next time with my little ones beside me!
Has anyone seen Enter the Void? It's about a guy who gets caught dealing drugs in Tokyo. I HATED it. Tokyo is one of my favorite places in the world but this film made it seem frightening, dark and lonely. Not a good film!
Wanted to add a stupid I did this spring. I needed to go to Great Falls for a funeral. If I drove it would be about $110 + in gas. Decided the motorcycle, as it was supposed to be in the 70's would be a good idea and only cost me about $40 - $50 instead. Well the wind was blowing, but I was bound and determined. There were times I was at a 45 deg lean and going straight because of the wind. By the time I had gotten to the 1/2 way point I was pretty wind whipped. Several people had told me about going through White Sulfur Springs, so when the guy in the gas station said it was a good idea as there were trees to block the wind and as a fellow rider it is what he would do, I decided that was the way to go. Well, he did not tell me it was 60 miles (96 km) to get to the trees. Then it started to get cooler... I clicked over the GPS to see my altitude and I was over 6000ft (1800m) and still climbing. Soon I am seeing signs that say, "Watch for ice next 5 miles" "Watch for ice next 10 miles". Snowbanks are forming on the shoulders. I was really ticked at the advice I had been given. Just after cresting the mountain I clicked over again and found out I was only a few feet under 7400ft (2255m) high. Who rides that high in APRIL!!!! It took me over 5 1/2 hours to get to a place that is normally just under 3 hours. I think I got road warrior on that one LOL.
There are some great films mentioned here, I am lucky that I am able to separate films from reality so I dont have any problems. However Hostel seemed to make me think a fair bit, we will be going to Bratislava later on this year and I did have a thought about it so maybe it did affect me somehow...
I was anytime in agitation I'd absolutely wish Liam Neeson as my Dad, so some asses can get kicked! It didn't acrylic a actual nice account of Eastern Europeans in Paris though!
New strange place, will inevitably be tension
My scary travel movie is "Open Water." A nice young couple go to the Bahamas on vacation, go on an afternoon scuba/snorkel trip with a number of other tourists, and get left behind.
I've gone on any number of those snorkel boats, and I can easily see how an accident like this could happen.
"Natasha," the drama about the facts of Japanese aggression against China, which the Japanese means is cruel.Feelings the Pang Tiande with Natasha is sincere and firm.But behind the plot people are not satisfied.
Everyone look at "Ghost Blows" novels, scary feeling.
