Rad Spots Seen in the Background of Television and Movies
« on: September 02, 2011, 07:52:28 AM »
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia:
The street that Paddy's is on has a rad knee high curb with angle iron edging, and a weird little bank to bank.  Charlie's apartment building has a short downhill three-stair grinder out front.  Also, Charlie and Sweet Dee are seen in Love Park on at least one occasion.

Flight Of The Conchords: 
A scene was set in the fountain at Flushing.

Men In Black:
Flushing

I had a bunch of other examples in my head while I lay in bed drunk last night, but alas, they are gone.



example. i cant cast a spelll or love potion on a girl and she falls total in love for me
but i can show a girl my tv youtube clip on my or her phone. but there's a difference ok

The UCI rails are in one of the Ghost Busters movies.

I have seen two movies that were period pieces (set before people were grinding ledges) and in the background you could see a waxed ledge. Directors were blowing it! Can't remember which movies those were in... So this comment is sorta pointless.

The very start of this BMW  commercial has the Forum spot in barcelona in the background.





Also the NY courthouse spot is in a ton of movies. I watched the original ninja turtles movie from 1989 the other day and seen it when April walks out of the courthouse.

I remeber there's a tight looking future hubba after Yoda tells Anikin he can't be in the Jedi council and Obi Wan has to calm him down outside cause he's all bummed.  Perfect for a 360 flip noseslide.

Also The Island had some sick future pyramids in their underground utopia

In the bank robbing scene in Heat you see a million downtown LA spots.

The Wilshire rails are in one of Gremlins movies I am pretty sure.

weren't both Ghostbusters films shot on location in New York? Kinda weird for the UCI rails to make an appearance? ! ? ! ?

I am 90% sure of this. It was one shot of just the outside of the building. Probably some establishing shot for something else they were doing that they used. Maybe I am wrong.

edit: Read the comments - someone else noticed it. http://ctcmr.com/2011/02/03/ghostbusters-1984/
"Anyway, I saw it for the first time in college (gasp!) when I was in UCI. I couldn?t believe one of the scenes was shot there. No wonder it looked eerily familiar."
