14. A Series of Unfortunate Events. It's where the Beaudilaire kids get the word from Mr. Poe that they were now orphans. I swear I didn't look it up, I just kept looking at it until I was ready to scream.

4. Dr. Dolittle
15. Beetlejuice

I'm pretty sure 10 is something I'm familiar with, but I can't place it at the moment.

Matthew said...

14: is Dark City... but they never actually reach it.

Rol said...

I just realised for the first time what a silly name Hill Valley is.

Nathan said...

Okay, I remember now. 10 is from "Big Fish."

Didn't "A Series of Unfortunate Events" start on BRINY Beach? Unless they changed it for the movie; I've seen it, but I don't remember it that well. Never seen "Dark City," so I can't say whether it has a Shell Beach.

Arkonbey said...

@Nathan: Dang! You're right :(

Blackwing Rose said...

Hill Valley....I never realized how silly that was til Rol said something. :-)

Yerk Toader said...

I'm pretty sure Neo Tokyo is the setting of several movies...How else does it get destroyed so many fucking times?
