      LA Confidential is an awesome movie I also like The Black Dahlia I'm excited for the new game coming out in a few weeks LA NOIRE.

      Yeah… "Critically acclaimed, the film holds a 99% rating at Rotten Tomatoes with 82 out of 83 reviews positive and average rating of 8.6 out of 10, as well as an aggregated rating of 90% based on 28 reviews on Metacritic. It was nominated for nine Academy Awards and won two, Basinger for Best Actress in a Supporting Role and Hanson and Helgeland for Best Screenplay – Adapted."

      Stop claiming well-known movies are "underrated", fools.

    The house from Signs was built in a field on my school's farm. It was just the exterior and they demolished it after filming, but we go a special thanks in the credits.

    I grew up right down the road from the house in the ending of Trains Planes and Automobiles.

  • P90

    #4 I think it was also used in Smallville.

  • Frank

    What the fuck? Where's the house from The Great Outdoors -1 assholes.

    It may not look quite the same without the Rube Goldberg device in front, but it's Mikey's house from The Goonies in Astoria, Oregon. The current residents don't respond well to the truffle shuffle though.

    #11 Classy. Both the house and the movie. Excellente.

      I think this is my favorite house ever, period. When I first saw N by NW years ago, I nearly shat myself. Sadly, it isn't real.

    #4 Royal Roads University. Consistently ranked in the top 5 for collaborative learning (real world environments), academic difficulty, and student satisfaction. Great school. Located just outside of Victoria, BC.
