Out of the Comfort Zone

We all have places we're comfortable in; a special chair, a certain room, it's a security blanket. So what if we're taken out of it, by choice or by force to an environment that is entirely different from the norm? These films are just a few of what it is like to be in an unknown world, where we're out of the comfort zone.

1. Jurassic Park - 1993 
A pair of archeologists are summoned to check out a dinosaur themed park and soon after are in a fight for survival against the prehistoric creatures.

2. The Wizard of Oz - 1939
Farm girl Dorothy Gail is caught in a tornado and knocked out, then wakes up to find herself in a world of witches, munchkins and a yellow brick road that leads to a magical city.

3. Jaws - 1975
A city police chief who has a fear of water is duty bound to search the uncharted waters for a killer shark to save a resort community.

4. Witness - 1985
Tough city cop John Book has to temporarily hide out in the rural Amish community in order to protect himself and a witness to a murder he's investigating.

 Can you think of other films that follow this same theme? Don't be afraid to share!
