Movies That Make You Want to Take a Summer Vacation

With the unofficial arrival of summer this Memorial Day weekend, we thought these movies would inspire you to take a summer vacation. Summer vacations are special because they may include long road trips with family, a flat tire, gas station food, and loads of laughter. As the kids leave school for the next three months or so, their imaginations can run wild. Why not take them on trip with some of these movies? Maybe they will want to go to summer camp or on a road trip? Summer reminds us all to relax and slow down. These movies will do just that. Make some popcorn, grab a cold beverage and sit down and watch a movie or two!

National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983)
This Chevy Chase classic reminds us all of the potential of road trips. Road trips can be boring and to cure the boredom, you may focus on something else. Vacations rarely go as planned and this film captures the hilarity of plans gone wrong. Sometimes the best vacations are the ones with some bad luck. If anything, a great story will come from it!

What About Bob? (1991)
Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss star in this comedy of one man just wanting to enjoy a vacation. Bob Wiley (Murray) become dependent upon his psychotherapist Dr. Leo Marvin (Dreyfuss) so much so that he tracks him down during his vacation in Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire. This movie will make you thankful for your (hopefully) relaxing vacation!

Summer Rental (1985)
Jack Chester (John Candy) takes his family to the beach for a relaxing summer vacation in sunny Citrus Grove, Florida (Gulf Coast). However, he does not get to relax because he feuds a local. To win back his pride and respect from his family, Jack must race him. If you like competition, you will enjoy this movie! A must watch movie for fans of sailing.

The Great Outdoors (1988)
Annoying in-laws disrupt Chet Ripley’s (John Candy) family vacation in a resort located in the woods of Pechoggin, Wisconsin. Sometimes all you want is to get away from your family to relax. But other times, your family may have other plans and those plans can result in a laugh-out-loud misadventure.

Wet Hot American Summer (2001)
David Wain’s indie cult classic captures the last day of a 1981 summer camp in Waterville, Maine. Starring the ageless Paul Rudd,  Amy Poehler, Chrisopher Meloni, Margeurite Moreau, and many others, this original comedy shows the best parts of summer. Summer camp involves new friendships, growing up, hijinks, and laughter of course. This movie is the first movie acting role for Bradley Cooper. Roast up some s’mores and reminisce on the all-American summer camp experience.

The Way, Way Back (2013)
Steve Carell and Allison Janney star in this coming-of-age summer movie dealing with the pains of fitting in. Duncan (Lian James) finds refuge with a water park manager Owen (Sam Rockwell) and together they learn to deal with not fitting in. This movie can help kids realize that they will find a place to fit in.

Cocktail (1988)
Tom Cruise starts in this R-rated summer classic as a bartender in Jamaica and finds love. But life does not go as planned. Summer love is fun, but it can get complicated and when it does, that is when it is tested to see if it really is just a summer fling.

Best Vampire Movies of All Time - Based on Rankings from 83 Websites

Scene from Let the Right One In (2000) ranked number one vampire movie.
Welcome to our Reel Fives pre-launch movie rankings for the best vampire films of all time. Our Reel Fives team found 83 ranked lists of the top vampire films published online and ended up with 50 movies that made the list. For each ranked list of greatest movies for the genre, we have taken the top five ranked films. The movie rankings of top vampire films we aggregated are included at the bottom of this post and include the best movies in the genre as ranked by movie experts and polling sites, such as ranker.com.

Vampires are immortal, undead creatures who must feed on the living. Though vampires have experienced a recent surge in popularity because of TV shows like True Blood and Vampire Diaries—and the Twilight series—they have been interesting for centuries. Vampire films challenge notions of morality and mortality. In Swedish film Let the Right One In (2000), the all-time best vampire movie, bullied 12-year-old Oskar’s relationship with his mysterious new neighbor Eli is tested when he learns Eli is a vampire. The Lost Boys (1987), ranked third, follows brothers Michael and Sam, who have just moved to a town renowned for mysterious deaths. With the help of a couple new friends, they soon discover the town is riddled with vampires, and become obsessed with finding a cure for the town … and for Michael. Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994), ranked fourth, stars a young Brad Pitt as Louis, who loses his will to live following the loss of his wife and child. When a vampire offers him an escape from his torment, he accepts, becoming a vampire himself and living through the centuries to tell his tale. Vampires live outside the norm because they feed on humans, but some vampires are able to blend into society. Can vampires and humans coexist?

The novel Dracula, written by Irish author Bram Stoker in 1897, introduced the world to Count Dracula, who wishes to move from Transylvania to England to spread his curse and have new blood to feast on. The book continues to inspire not only early vampire films but the vampire cannon as a whole. Transylvania remains a point of interest in the vampire genre. Nosferatu (1922), ranked second, is a German Expressionist’s (unauthorized) twist on Dracula. Directed by the famed F.W. Murnau, the film features some of the most influential shots in all of cinema. Murnau’s technique of suggesting horror with shadows and few words remains in practice to this day. Dracula (1931), ranked eighth, tells the story Nosferatu could not tell. With Stoker’s permission, the film adapts his novel—in which Professor Abraham Van Helsing attempts to save Mina after she is bitten by Dracula—for mass audiences. In 1992, Dracula hit the theaters again in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, ranked fifth, under the direction of Francis Ford Coppola. Coppola decided to follow the novel as closely as he could, but made it scarier. This version of Dracula is as much horror film as it is vampire film. Dracula continues to be relevant and influential in the vampire genre and that is unlikely to change.

The rankings slightly favor films made in the 1980s and 1990s, but the classics and some relative newcomers are represented as well, resulting in a balanced list. Dracula-type films take three of the top ten rankings, showing the stamina of the seminal vampire novel. Vampires have remained relevant for centuries, much as the film genre about them seems poised to do. Each decade has its share of vampire films that both pay homage to its German Expressionist roots and push the genre into the next decade. We don’t think the vampire genre will be gone anytime soon as each generation becomes fascinated by it. You might say it’s immortal.

Best Revisionist Westerns of All Time - Results from 96 websites

Scene from The Searchers (1956) the top ranked revisionist western movie.

Welcome to our Reel Fives pre-launch movie rankings for the best revisionist Westerns of all time. Our rankings of best Westerns cover a broader spectrum of the genre. The best Western rankings are based on 96 published rankings. All of the rankings found were aggregated into definitive rankings of the top 89 Westerns of all time. Of those 89 Westerns, 37 were revisionist Westerns and they are ranked below. The original sources of rankings on top Westerns include rankings created by movie experts as well as Western movie rankings from polling sites, such as ranker.com.

Revisionist Westerns, also known as modern Westerns, challenge the genre’s foundations. While classic Westerns tend to show Native Americans as aloof savages, revisionist Westerns push back on that trope. Dances With Wolves (1990), ranked seventh, centers on Lieutenant Dunbar’s (Kevin Costner) journey into a Native American tribe. Director Kevin Costner traded in violence for understanding of Native American culture. The film portrays the humanity of Native Americans and their ability to accept white people in spite of the erasure of Native American culture by the Federal Government.

Revisionist Westerns also challenge the dichotomous good guy - bad guy concept. Gaining popularity after the 1990s, they focus on the grey areas of morality. In Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven (1992), ranked second (also ranked the fourth best Western), Bill Munny (Clint Eastwood) comes to terms with his mortality. Munny is seen both as a hero and villain because he uses non-heroic means to become a hero, thus leaving a legendary legacy behind. This is the grey area of morality. Can heroes use villain tactics and still be a hero? Revisionist Westerns explore this concept.

Not all revisionist Westerns were produced before the 1990s. In fact, six of the top 10 films were made prior to 1990. The Searchers (1956), the all-time best revisionist Western (also ranked the second best Western), shows a change of heart from Martin Pawley, Ethan’s nephew (Jeffrey Hunter) while he helps his uncle Ethan (John Wayne) rescue his niece from Native Americans. Martin questions Ethan’s intentions, and the film shows the divide between Native American and Anglo-American culture.

Best Fantasy Movies of All Time - Based on 40 Sources

Scene from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) ranked number one fantasy movie.
Welcome to our Reel Fives pre-launch movie rankings for the best fantasy movies of all time. After an extensive online search, we found 40 published rankings for fantasy. Reel Fives has taken all of those rankings and aggregated them into definitive rankings for the top 72 fantasy movies of all time. For each ranked list of top movies for the fantasy genre we found online, we have taken the top five ranked films. The original sources of rankings on top fantasy movies are included at the bottom of this post and include rankings of the best fantasy movies created by movie experts as well as fantasy movie rankings from polling sites.

Fantasy films imagine different worlds and explore the possibilities within those worlds. Not all the worlds are that different from the present day world. Some take place in a parallel universe. Fantasy can be divided between high and low fantasy. High fantasy differs from low fantasy in that high fantasy created new worlds with new rules. World building is popular in high fantasy as well as telling the story from the hero’s perspective. Series are also popular in high fantasy. In comparison, low fantasy remains in the same world, with elements of magic throughout the story. Low fantasy may take place in a different world, but it remains rational (anything goes in high fantasy). The difference between the subgenres of fantasy says nothing on the quality of the work, merely on the use of fantasy elements in the work.

The rankings show that whether or not a fantasy film is high or low does not make a difference, as long as the plotline includes some fantasy elements. The Wizard of Oz (1939), ranked second, is a sweet story of a lost young girl who encounters some friends and a witch. They must all overcome their fears to find their way home. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946), ranked tenth, follows George Bailey as he contemplates ending his life. An angel shows him what life would have been like without him and Bailey finds his will to live again. The Princess Bride (1987), ranked fourth, explores a world filled with princes and kings. The film is a comedic tale of the pursuit of love in a medieval world. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001), ranked fifth, is the first of eight films devoted the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Harry and his wizard friends live among humans, but they are also part of the wizard world. These different worlds all have something to offer and allow the imagination to soar.

The fantasy genre cannot be talked about without an extensive conversation on the world building seen in The Lord of the Rings trilogy (as well as The Hobbit Trilogy). Roughly, the books follow different groups of humans, elves, and dwarves who are pursuing a powerful ring created by an evil wizard. The ring corrupts those who wear it and poses a danger to the world. Director Peter Jackson crafted all three movies to perfection. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), the all-time best fantasy film, was the first in the series that explored J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Ring novel. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), ranked third and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), ranked seventh, were both well received by audiences and critics. No two pieces of armor looked alike and the actors learned how to sword fight to tell an authentic story. All together, the trilogy won 17 Oscars, making it one of the most successful film series to date. This included an unprecedented ‘Oscars sweep’ by the third film, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), during the 76th Academy Awards, where it won all 11 awards it was nominated for, including Best Picture. The series is just one example of high fantasy and when done well, high fantasy films will get the well-deserved accreditation.

We love this genre and the worlds it creates. It is one of the most creative genres and we enjoy the endless possibilities. The rankings showed that audiences and critics do not just like one particular world. The worlds do not even have to be all that different from the current world, which broadens the genre in ways other genres lack depth. The rankings do not show an outright preference for high or low fantasy films. However, high fantasy films do leave more room for film series. When high fantasy films are well made, they do well and that does reflect in the rankings. World building is no easy task, which is why so many films lean towards low fantasy (more on this in future articles). The stories are endless and film makers can bring anything to life. The fantasy genre can afford to have film series because of the world building it does. Books provide great inspiration for fantasy movies and that is not a bad place for producers to start. The fantasy genre continues to excite us and we look forward to promising upcoming titles including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Jungle Book, The Little Prince, and Alice through the Looking Glass.
