It's New To Us: States As Represented By Movies

By Chuck Sudo in Add category on Oct 28, 2010 4:40PM


With a tip of the hat to my predecessor, who shared this on his Twitter feed yesterday, comes this map of the United States and the movies that best represent each individual state.

There are some inspired selections here (American Movie for Wisconsin is particularly hilarious, as is Red Dawn for Colorado) Illinois can certainly do better than The Blues Brothers, can't it? That just seems kind of obvious. Why not something from the John Hughes canon? Or Halloween?

Go on. Discuss.
