Home movies: Life isn't a movie

In honor of the Oscars:
Life isn't a movie and you can't really live a dream. If a movie or dream lasted as long as our lives, it would just be life. Movies and dreams by definition are simply moments in time.

Unless our lives are interesting enough for Hollywood to adapt into a movie, the only way we may ever see our story condensed would be the movie trailer we create when life flashes before our eyes just before we die.

a) Total Recall (1990)
b) Before Sunrise (1995)
c) Fight Club (1999)
d) Lost in Translation (2003)
e) Megamind (2010)

Find these movies referenced in the travel posts below:

a) Home Movies: 'Total Recall' - Ego Trip (A vacation from yourself)
b) Home Movies: 'Before Sunrise' - "I've never been anywhere" quote
c) Mixtape: 'Loz in Translation' Sampler (Spain)
