    @FutureDrAtkins:  Thats funny because I always associate a Christmas story with Ontario. The school scenes were filmed in St Catharines ON and thats where my mom is from and where my extended family still lives. Whenever I visit them for Christmas it would be on TV 24/7 and the news would visit the location it was filmed, every year. With that much excitement I thought the whole movie was filmed there, so I learned something today! haha

    @beachbride1216:  or the whole panhandle 😉 still pretty rural here… shoot I don’t even have to drive too far from Tally (maybe 10min tops) to hit the country bumpkins.

    @btothez:  Gotta be honest, I would have said Twilight for Washington (not proudly or anything). 

    Or Sleepless in Seattle!  Right, obviously Sleepless in Seattle.

    Horray for Fight Club and Delaware!! However, unlike Tyler Durden, I don’t want to get rid of all the fortune 500 companies located in Wilmington because it means no sales tax for us 😉 Go capitalism?!?!

    @September29:  You’re not alone!! I’m here too!

    Fight club most definitely takes place in Wilmington, DE due to all the Fortune 500 companies that make their base of operations there… I didn’t even realize this upon first watching it until my brother pointed out the conversation Tyler has:

    • 01:17:07 – There’s a Fight Club up in Delaware City. – Yeah, I heard.

    • 01:17:13 There’s one in Penns Grove too.

    • 01:17:15 Bob even found one up in New Castle.

    • 01:17:17 – Did you start that one? – No, I thought you did

    I don’t know HOW I missed that one.  Other movies filmed in DE include Beloved (Danny Glover, Oprah Winfrey–shots were filmed in Histroic New Castle, as were shots from Dead Poet’s Society).  I grew up there–I was too young to meet Robin Williams when he filmed DPS, but I met Danny Glover. 

    And apparently The Village, Days of Thunder and Failure to Launch were also shot partially in DE… I had no idea about those three.

    I didn’t even know True Grit was about/set in Oklahoma.

    That said, “Twister” is a pretty iconic one for us, and of course the very iconic play “Oklahoma!”

    @btothez:  Maine being Shawshank Redepmtion is crazy since Stephen King is from Maine and quite a few of his books that were turned into movies take place in Maine!

    As a born-and-raised Michigander, my first thought is RoboCop! Maybe it’s just wishful thinking lol.

    @mdcmod:  I agree. TWISTER! Oklahoma! being a close second 😉


    And.. being from Kansas… nobody can find this out and not ask where Toto is or some other thing relating to the Wizard of Oz. Heck, My part time job is at a store formerly known as Kansas Sampler that has an entire section dedicated to WoO!! 

    Nobody asks if there are any tshirts with the Clutters on them or ask for directions back to Holcomb… or even say “I don’t think we’re in Holcomb anymore!”

    This coming from someone who studied psychopatic killers in college and loves serial killers (I know, I’m a little warped) – We’re much more known for Wizard of Oz.

    I’ve never even heard of Missouri’s movie. Not that I know of a better movie, but seriously.
