Flying can be boring. But there is a remedy: movies. It’s the ideal way to killing your time. Softly! Especially on those 10 to 12 hours transatlantic flights. Well, in this case, the airline companies have their own means of entertainment, which, amongst other, comes up with a wide selection of movies. But what to do if you’ve already seen them? Just make sure that you have a portable DVD player with you. Sony and GPX launched some great ones with 9 inches screens, while Sylvania goes further to 10” and 13,3”. All set, then. But what movies to watch?
