Superman for New York? It takes place in Metropolis! lol

Great post idea, Mr. Meep! And I'm thrilled beyond words that "Badlands" and "Billy Jack" made the cut. I recently watched all four Billy Jack movies over the span of two days, and reviewed them over the course of four--so it's nice to see them getting some love from somewhere outside my own blog.

Cheap plug but posted about this not so long ago (http://www.film-intel.com/2011/03/from-files-of-awesome-t-shirts.html) same idea but displayed on a t-shirt!

Man, I want to take a stab at this list but it looks like it would be exhausting! But props to Serial Mom! There was a scene filmed in a parking lot in the same shopping center as the theatre I saw the movie in. That was kind of cool, in a movie nerd way!

Thanks peeps!

Tom - totally. But for this native new uprise it will always be the big apple to me.

Rupert Pupkin said...

Faaaantastic list sir! Love the stills you chose as usual!

Possibly my favorite films by State lists that I've seen... nice mix and unexpected surprises. And slant towards a horror. Good show!
