Time Killing for Movie Geeks

Okay, all you MGs, if you're like me, you probably find yourself in this situation all the time: You've just finished watching your 5th movie of the day (two at the theater, two on PPV, and one on DVD), and the cinematography is starting to run together just a bit and you swear you recognize the town where they filmed that romantic, Bonanza-era, man-on-horse-rescues-damsel-in-distress-with-lots-of-cleavage scene*. But, dammit, you wonder ... where was it filmed?

That happens to me all the freakin' time**. Does it happen to you? I know. Yep.

Well, strap that horse to the post and come inside. Let me introduce you to your new home page:

movieMappr

(They need to buy a vowel, but don't hold that against them.)

Many years ago, Average Matt and Mrs. Matt lived in a tiny town called Bishop, California. Thanks to the wonder that is movieMappr, I just learned that all-time classics such as TRUE GRIT and NEVADA SMITH were filmed in that sleepy little hamlet. Who knew??!! (movieMappr, that's who.)

So, while you're anxiously waiting for the next Cinebanter*** or the next Average Matt movie review****, go knock yourself out on movieMappr.

--------

* Mrs. Matt refers to cleavage as "The Show." You, my faithful reader, are welcome to do likewise as long as appropriate credit is given.

** It actually never happens to me. I've never seen more than two movies in one day.

*** I have no idea when the next Cinebanter will be available.

*** I have no idea when the next Average Matt movie review will be available, but I did TiVo a PPV movie about two weeks ago. Haven't had time to watch yet. Lots going on - job change, etc. Sit tight, peeps.
