Is this pretty much ideal or not? What would you change? You can only have one per state.

Definitely not, but I'm no cartographer.

I would make Massachusetts be Fever Pitch. Obviously, it is not a better movie than The Departed, but the rabid fanaticism of Red Sox fans was captured pretty well in that movie, and it is truly representative of many inhabitants of this state.

Kalifornia seems wrong.

While I guess more know for Twister I have always had a fondness for UHF for the Oklahoma (non-Oklahoma) movie.

I love it, except for the fact that Mass gets two movies.
-edit-
Durr ... there's a state above Massachusetts?

Pretty sad that Jesus Camp is mentioned twice. There has to be another film for either North Dakota or Missouri.

By the way I think this was already posted in the movie forum.

I would go with either SOUTH PARK, or THE SHINING for Colorado instead of RED DAWN
ROGER & ME for Michigan with the current state of affairs, there isn't a more fitting movie.

I agree that Colorado should be The Shining.
Texas should be Blood Simple. No Country is a better movie, but Blood Simple is just sooo Texan.
New Mexico needs to be Ace in the Hole.

You ought to use black type on the yellow states to make it readable. Or change the yellow to something else.

Jesus Camp is OK for North Dakota, but Missouri should be either: Waiting for Guffman, The Great St. Louis Bank Robbery, or Meet Me in St. Louis

And since I have a bias, I think Stand by Me is a better pick for Oregon

What's your bias?

And the more I think about it, a classic western set in Texas would be great. Maybe Lonesome Dove or Rio Grand. Or maybe something set in Texas, with Texas in the name, like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Wayne's World isn't as big an Illinois film as The Blues Brothers is, and while its inclusion for Delaware is funny, Delaware should go to Fight Club.

I like "Into the Wild" for Alaska - only because I haven't seen "Alone in the Wilderness" - but from looking it up it sounds pretty similar.

I recognize New England, NY, PA, MD and Florida, as well as California, but I've never heard of all those states in the middle.

Arkansas - Sling Blade

Nebraska - Boys Don't Cry - really captures the culture of small town life there.

Texas - Fraility - most of the actors are Texans, and it is specifically set in East Texas.
