LA Plays Itself In The Movies – Fade Out

Hooray for Hollywood!

Thanks to all the Metblog authors who joined in the fun of our series about Los Angeles playing her own multi-facted self in the movies. There are so many movies out there that of course we would never be able to cover them all. But the mix and match aspect of the movies written about was fascinating: Noir and punk, pop and camp, blockbusters and indies.

Check out the movies after the jump, put them on your netflix queue and enjoy your fair city in all her starring roles.

  1. Yes, thanks for organizing, Julia! There really are a lot of L.A. movies I need to watch. I wish I could have done more, but am possibly going to weave mention of one into a future post I’m planning.
