You missed the best. Shawshank Redemption was filmed at the Mansfield Reformatory. I heard somewhere that the giant oak tree by the stone wall died

'An Innocent Man' - Tom Sellick

The prison gym scene (and the scene where he shanked a fellow con) were filmed in Norwood's Middle school lower gym, where the MS wrestling team practices. They needed a run-down gym.........it was so bad, they had to do some fixing up for the movie.

Yappi, did you copy and paste this from somewhere or do you not know Cincinnati is spelled with one "t" and 3 "n"s?

Didn't realize a few of these movies were set in Ohio though. I'll go Tommy Boy or Major League.

I know. Yappi wrote "based in Ohio". Not set, not based upon life in Ohio, but merely based in Ohio.

Rebound is getting no love! C'mon, it's even got Martin Lawrence in it.

I left out Shawshank Redemption and A Christmas Story because they were based in other states.

Not where it was filmed, where the story says it took place.

Interestingly, I was in the movie Major League. My part wasn't real big. Look for me when they fly over the stadium. I'm one of the people in the crowd. Unfortunately I didn't get paid or put in the credits!

That's pretty cool. I know people who were extras for the Ides of March that came out earlier this decade. IIRC they did some filming up near Miami's campus and a few friends drove up to be some faces in the crowd.

GUMMO

"Lonely residents of a tornado-stricken Ohio town wander the deserted landscape trying to fulfill their boring, nihilistic lives."

Though the movie was shot in Tennessee it takes place in Xenia Ohio the days after the F5 Tornado.

As for Horror movies, one of my favorites is called "Trick R Treat" and that movie is based in the fictional Ohio town of Warren Valley.

A borderline cult classic from the 80s is "...All the Marbles" starring Peter Falk. Women's wrestling duo taking all comers in the Midwest. Lots of film in Youngstown ( they used Akron in the movie) good pictures of Mill creek park and the Cinderella bridge.

I struggle with such questions.

I guess if I was to look at cinema from a film-making perspective I could pick a "technical best", but good movies - good enough to suspend disbelief and enjoy as an immersive experience - to me are purely experiential. As such, what's "best" depends upon my own mood.

Major League, Rain Man, and Silence of the Lambs in a three-way tie for me.

Traffic, along with 2 other movies (I want to say one with Denzel Washington), were all filmed in my building downtown.
