One movie per specific location - City, State, Country, or Continent. So there can be a movie for Seattle, one for Washington, one for the US, and one for North America--all would count as different sub-locations. So if there seems some overlap, please keep that in mind.

The goal here is to find 80 movies that have different locations that in some way, at least, focus on that location even a little, whether it be feeling or scenery, or some other reason. I'm not including "filmed in" in this list, but movies where the story takes place in that location (even if not truly filmed there).

I might change this now and again, but not in any significant way.

Please feel free to do your own version, if you are so inclined. I'd love to see what others come up with.

I really like this idea.

Aren't you taking into account where the movie was filmed? The majority of Gladiator was filmed in Morocco.
