Which cinematic universe do you most want to live in?

Touchstone Pictures
In the Wes Anderson film 'The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou' red-capped underwater-adventurers hunt for the elusive jaguar shark.

Good cinema takes you out of your living room and transports you miles, eons, and even worlds away. And like a good book, the best films can leave you with a deep desire to meet those characters, or even live life for a day in their magical worlds. Think about living out supernatural fantasies within the walls of Hogwarts, hunting an elusive jaguar shark alongside your quirky buddies in a Wes Anderson film, or dodging bullets as a super-human cybercriminal in “The Matrix.”
