                          I can drive to where they shot one of the scenes in Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing, as I haven't seen it.
                          The Blob was shot near me as well, and that's awesome.

                                          I thought that one was filmed in New Jersey like the original one was.
