New York Movies

I was careful to make sure this wasn't just "Best movies that happen to take place in New York" and is instead "movies ive seen that have good and interesting portrayals of New York"

Obviously The Avengers isn't a great movie but New York is a great set piece in it.

  • Planet of the Apes
