Dreams in Movies

Hi guys!

I’ve been blogging a lot about dreams, because to me, dreaming is a relatable topic. Everyone dreams and everyone’s dreams mean something. There are so many things in life that root back to our dreams and so many ways our dreams help us realize more about ourselves. There are quite a few movies that involve dreaming too.

Here’s a few of the more popular movies about dreams:

  • The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy dreams her way into a place that is definitely not Kansas anymore. Her dream is complete with good witches, bad witches, munchkins, and a yellow brick road. In the end she realizes every character in her dream, even the cowardly lion, symbolized a person in her life.)
  • Inception (This is probably one of the more popular movies about dreams. Some say you have to watch it twice to get the full story from the mind of an unconscious man whose dreams are invaded time and time again throughout the movie.)
  • Alice in Wonderland (Most of this film takes place in Alice’s dream. She goes from reading a boring book in a field to an adventure in a totally new land. There’s the white rabbit, the cat, the Queen of Hearts, giant playing cards, and the caterpillar who’s always smoking; all of which make up for an interesting visit to Wonderland. )


Here’s a list of more “dreamy” movies:

  • Dumbo
  • Shutter Island
  • Chicago
  • James and the Giant Peach
  • Total Recall
  • Nightmare on Elm Street
  • the Matrix
  •  Avatar
  •  Groundhog Day
  • Spy Kids 2 : the Island of Lost Dreams
  • The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl
  • Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat


“No matter how dreary and gray our homes are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, be it ever so beautiful. There is no place like home.”

–          L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
