Kevin, you sure know your NYC trains'. I also check the geography in films. I recently watched a movie that was to take place in Colorado, but was actually Norway. Another was Louisiana, but actually Canada. And the list goes on'.... Must be our generation, or LEOs just like to know where they are at all times'.... 🙄
I lived down the block from Mystic Pizza when they were shooting the movie. Knowing the geography of the area makes watching much harder.
Ted, on the F/G train line, I know that station from riding the trains in my teen years and trainspotting. The "Coming to America" scene I had to do some internet hunting to find out the station name.
Jon, yes, it does make watching a movie harder.

Couple of interesting articles on this:
**NEW MOVIE ENTRY**
Used Cars (1980) with Kurt Russell and Jack Warden, which I'm watching the DVD right now. Near the end of the movie, one of the characters racing back to the car lot has to ramp jump over a freight train.
