Movies to Watch on a Flight

After you’ve decided on where to go for your vacation and scheduled all the flight and hotel arrangements, it’s time to decide what you’ll watch on the plane. There are plenty of options, so where do you start? Here you’ll find a wide variety of movies to help keep you entertained while you travel.

Try Something Foreign

Though it might not be your first choice, a foreign movie might be just what the doctor ordered when it comes to keeping you entertained. The mix of unknown actors/actresses and having to read closed captions will open your mind to movies produced outside of America. You can watch Kdrama to wet your whistle and try something new. The programming is growing in popularity and you can get in on the ground floor with this type of entertainment. It doesn’t have to be from South Korea to be a foreign gem, you can take in a movie from France, Brazil, or Nigeria to get your foreign fix.

A Good Comedy For Laughs

If you’re on a long journey to Malaysia, having a good comedy or two to watch will help the time fly by. Depending on your taste in comedy, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a number of different films including Stripes, National Lampoon’s [insert your favorite] Vacation and/or Airplane! These are just a few of the comedies you can enjoy while you travel. Having a good laugh in an otherwise boring situation is a great way to pass the time. So give comedy a chance to mix up your movie-watching extravaganza.

Go Go Action Films

Watching a new kdrama or a comedy is a nice option but there are times you just want to watch an action film. The allure of the fights, explosions, and stunts as the protagonist tries to overcome the odds against the villain is hard to ignore. If you’re not sure where to start, try asking your friends and family for their action movie favorites and start there. You’ll never know what movies you’ll enjoy until you give them a shot, so keep an action movie on the table for your inflight cinema enjoyment.

Out of This World Fantasy

If you want to scratch your “out of this world” itch, find yourself a good fantasy movie to watch. To keep it simple, the fantasy genre is packed with fun-filled options for your viewing. Such movies include the Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars franchises. With even just these few franchises, you’ll have hours of cinematic greatness to dive into. And, if you’re into superheroes fighting it out on the big screen, fantasy is the way to go. Simply look to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a plethora of movies to keep your interest and help your flight feel exceptionally short.

Animation for The Kids or The Kid at Heart

There’s plenty to watch when it comes to animated movies. Between Disney, Dreamworks, and 20th Century Fox, you’ll have a lot to watch on a plane and anywhere else for that matter. If you’re unfamiliar with the genre, which would be a real shock, just stream a movie from Disney’s Pixar Studios. Classics such as Toy Story, Monsters Inc, and The Incredibles will provide you with great stories and brilliant artwork. And if you have a thing against Disney, Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon, and Madagascar can fill its place. No matter which company you’d rather watch or if you like them both, there’s a nice variety between the companies to spice up your in-flight movie watching.

Whatever your genre of choice, there are dozens of options to help keep you entertained during your travels. You can choose the comfort of something familiar or, even better, try something completely new!
