Before Sunrise – Before Sunset – Before Midnight

If you like Europe and deep meaningful dialogues with a good dose of humour, you’ll love this trilogy. We only discovered these films recently when we accidentally saw the first one, Before Sunrise, on TV. Regarded as one of the most significant films of the 90’s, Before Sunrise, was followed by two more sequels. We watched all three films and loved every second of it. The first movie takes you to Vienna, Austria, the second one – to Paris, and the third – to the Greek Islands. Watch these movies in the USA or in the UK.

Everest: The Movie

BEST MOUNTAINEERING MOVIES EVER MADERecently, I watched one of the best mountaineering movies I’ve ever seen.Historically, mountaineering movies have struggled to bridge the gap between climbing documentary and Hollywood blockbuster. However, Everest – released in 2015 and starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Josh Brolin – has managed to please both thrill-seeking moviegoers and mountaineers alike (unless you’re Jon Krakauer of course).
