The travel site Upgraded Points is looking to pay one lucky person $1,000 buckaroos to pop some popcorn, sit back and watch a few travel films. Each movie is set in an inspirational place to evoke some serious travel envy. The participant will need to focus on scenery, themes and characters. Upgraded Points’ ideal participant will have a true love for travel and exploration, combined with a passion for cinema.

Each participant will need to watch the nine movies in a relatively short amount of time. Don’t worry, though. These are some of the best wanderlust movies in history. We’re talkin’ Under the Tuscan Sun; Eat, Pray, Love; Raiders of the Lost Ark; National Lampoon’s Vacation; Out of Africa; Catch Me If You Can; Midnight in Paris; The Italian Job; Murder On The Orient Express. From Midnight in Paris’ charming literary romance to the wild Peruvian adventures in Raiders of the Lost Ark, the assignment is the ultimate recipe for some armchair travel.
