Landscape photography movies for COVID-19 lockdown

Sitting at home is no fun, especially if usually you spend outdoors more time than inside. And while I can't do anything about lockdown itself - we all need to protect our relatives, friends and neighbors - here are some movies to watch that could inspire you to take some nice images once COVID-19 blows over.
