Movies & TV for a Vacation

Big BenHave you ever had an experience that vividly reminds you of a particular movie or an episode from a TV series? Something that makes you want to curl up on the couch as soon as you get home and watch the movie?

After the first few days, I started keeping a mental list of movies and TV shows in my head, things to watch when my vacation was over and normal life had resumed. By the end of the two weeks, the list was quite extensive!

Below is part of my mental list of movies and TV shows, along with what I saw that made me think of each one.
