I'm not happy with many of these choices.
In particular, I would take The Descendants or Pearl Harbor over Tora! Tora! Tora! for Hawaii.
Texas feels like it should have something far greater than No Country, but I'll admit that I can't come up with what it should be.
I might've gone with Roger & Me for Michigan.
Good calls - Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Oregon, Washington (though I actually thought First Blood was in Oregon), California (even though there are dozens of other movies that could qualify, Fast Times sums up the surfer thing well), Illinois, Indiana, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maine, and New York.
Some of the states don't mean anything to me as far as movies go - Maryland, Delaware, and lots of New England, for example.
Kentucky feels really wrong. Isn't there some horse racing movie that would top Kalifornia?
Help me improve this map, won't you?
