Most of us like to see or read great adventures in a book or a movie. The mundane actitivies of life are cast aside for the dangerous landscape of a strange foreign world and bizarre/heroic characters.
Here's a list of some favourites:
1. Star Trek (Various episodes from different series)
2. Raiders Of The Lost Ark
3. Field Of Dreams
5. Star Wars (The Empire Strikes Back)
6. Superman Two
7. The Invasion Of The Body Snatchers(First Movie)
8. The Bridge On The River Kwai
9. The Ten Commandments
10.Back To The Future (The First Movie)
As a writer, I definitely, respond more to this genre than any other.
