One of the endearing beauty of watching movies is being able to be immersed in a fictional world so vivid and compelling that it almost feels like you are there. Sometimes, you even wish you were there because after all, that’s the reason we look to escape with movies, television shows, novels or video games. Hence, the question of the week is: What fictional world do you wish to live in?
For me, the first one that comes to mind is the world of I Am Legend. Although I certainly wouldn’t want to be the last man left on Earth with flocks of zombies (or vampires technically) waiting to kill me, I have always fantasized about how I would survive in such a dire situation. It would also be quite something to explore a world devoid of any people and maybe even have to fend for yourself for a (little) while.
Another fictional world that I actually think would be pretty cool to live in would be Springfield from The Simpsons. Blessed with a perennially blue sky, various ecological systems such as a beach, a mountain, a volcano, a glacier, a desert, and countless forests, Springfield has to be the most exciting middle-sized town ever! Feel thirsty, go to Moe’s for a Duff beer. Homer will always provide some free entertainment. Want to see some basketball? The Springfield Excitement are playing tonight! I’m sure I can think of more but I will reserve those for the comments.
It’s your turn! What fictional world did you wish to live in or visit? Feel free to answer with any fictional world, may it be from movies, television, video games, comics or literature.
