Now You're Thinking with Portals: Our 10 Favorite World-Hopping Movies

The Chronicles of Narnia book series helped popularize the subgenre in which characters step from the mundane and into the fantastical. As such, it feels appropriate to close out this list with the recent, big budget adaptation of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

The first moments in Narnia – amidst drifting snow and the light of a single lamp post – manage to convey a dreamlike quality that stands in stark contrast to scenes set in our own world.

Really, one could include the majority of the currently produced Chronicles of Narnia films on this list, given the ready availability of opportunities to step between our run-a-day world and the titular realm of dwarves, satyrs, talking animals, witches, and all manner of creatures of legend. That said, only the original 2005 entry properly conveys the sense of wonder, terror, and majesty created by its classic source material.
