The City & Its Movies

Movie list created by Phil_Sump Avatar

Choose file... or enter url:
A list featuring some of my favourite cities and a selection of famous movies that heavily feature them.

I have limited each city to a five movie maximum, party because of the Listal layout I have screws up when I add more, but also because cities like LA and New York have countless movies.

However if you have any suggestions of a movie that features a city more than the ones I have listed or if there is a city you think should be added then please comment and let me know.

Thanks for viewing

Love this list! I'm glad that you posted on my profile so that I could see this. You could probably include Tokyo- such films as 'Lost in Translation', 'Black Rain', 'Babel', 'Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift' and 'You only live twice'...etc.

Rio de Janeiro is another good one. You have 'City of God', 'Fast Five', 'Rio', 'The Incredibles Hulk' and 'Moonraker', amongst others.

Also Rome= 'Angels and Demons', 'Nine', 'The Tiger and the snow', 'Ocean's Twelve', 'The Pink Panther 2', 'Bicyycle thieves' and 'When in Rome'

Coming from Australia I only know a handful of international films set in our cities. Unfortunately international cinema seems to ignore our cities, but Sydney has a few. They include 'Finding Nemo', 'Mission Impossible 2', 'Muriul's Wedding', 'Strictly Ballroom' and 'Two Hands', although it's your choice whether or not to include those because the last three are smaller Australian films themselves, though became fairly big in the U.S.

Thanks for the list! Hope this is helpful.

Bro sick list. For Chicago I'd add Ordinary People. Set in the surrounding suburbs right outside Chicago. Older film and a bit different from the movies you've got listed but great film. One of my favorites. Won an Oscar as well.

Think I'm gonna limit it to 5 movies each city, otherwise it could get silly for cities like LA and NY

Cool list!

In my opinion, you should put movies taking place mostly in the mentionned city (ruling out 'Inception', 'The Incredible Hulk','The Bourne trilogy', ...)

So, 'Inception' is a bad choice for Paris. You should put something like 'Midnight in Paris'.

Other suggestion for Boston : 'The Town'

Cool. Escape from New York and Quick Change would also be good choices for New York.

You could also add an entry for Philadelphia.
