    Some of your choices really bother me, lol. I love South Park and all but for me Colorado is clear, The Shining.

    Oregon should be One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, probably Stand By Me second.

    Wyoming should be Unforgiven I'd say or even Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

    Wisconsin should be Contact in my view or even Dogma

    It would be shorter if I list the ones I do agree with, lol.

    I for the most part agree with Texas, Alaska, North Carolina, New Mexico, New Jersey, Delaware, Arkansas, New Hampshire, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, and Minnesota.

    I think I might hate the New York pick the most, there must be at least 100 better films then that one set in New York. The Godfather seems like the obvious choice, but even 12 Angry Men or Taxi Driver or Goodfellas, so many other classics that are clearly better films in my view.

    I generally agree. There's a few I'd change, like Texas, which I would change to No Country for Old Men. But generally, I think it's a solid list.

    It would be hard to pick a best movie for New York, as literally 1,000's of movies have been made in, or include New York.

    also, for Hawaii......I would nominate 50 First Dates, with Adam Sandler.

    Not completely, but that is a good start. (I think you have some of the "states" - I say that with quotation marks" because many of these were done in BC - wrong.)
