Right... Cascades, not Rockies.
My bad.

As for IMDb, you can update most information yourself... I think.

As far as the Deer Hunter is concerned, it was supposed to be "set" in Western PA, but there are two glaring issues with that:

1) The mountains are obviously the Rockies. Any glance will reveal that.

2) The deer they are hunting are shown as Mule Deer, which are not indigenous to PA. They should technically be hunting White Tail.

I love that movie, but those little details always bugged me...


Most of the movie was filmed in West Virginia and Ohio about an hour outside of Pittsburgh. I know a bunch of people who worked on it. The hunting scenes were filmed Washington's Cascade Mountains. Not sure why.

Back to topic at hand, I'm surprised a few of the movies mentioned here aren't on the Jersey City-IMDB page.

Parker Posey and Liev Schreiber were in a movie called Party Girl that has scenes filmed in Jersey City's Main Library at 472 Jersey Avenue. IMDB has the release date as June 9, 1995.

Lets not forget this Christmas classic…(it’s on PBS every year, great little story!)


Trans-Siberian Orchestra: The Ghost of Christmas Eve (2001)

Product Description

TOS's THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS EVE - now available for the first time on VHS and DVD - is a unique fantasy trip through the magic of Christmas. Narrated by award-winning actor Ossie Davis, the production takes us on a journey of a runaway little girl's decision to return to her family after she enters a rundown theater for shelter and encounters an old caretaker who guides her on her journey. This magical story - which features appearances from Atlantic recording artists Jewel and Michael Crawford – was filmed entirely on location at the newly refurbished and historic Loews Jersey Theatre in Jersey City, New Jersey, and includes performances of such tracks as "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Good King Joy," "Christmas Canon," "Music Box Blues," "Promises To Keep," and "This Christmas Day,".


Track Listing:
O' Come All Ye Faithful/O Holy Night
Good King Joy
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing -- Featuring Jewel
Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24)
Christmas Canon
O Holy Night -- Featuring Michael Crawford
Music Box Blues
Promises To Keep
This Christmas Day
First Snow

I re-read my post and it sounds patronizing to your efforts and work. Sorry. I think the spots are great. They just seemed more "raw" than those overly polished prime time commercials and of course more "dirty", LOL. But I appreciate that is where the style for commercials is going and they really make the point!

Definitely NOT a "contest commercial." These were commissioned by Trojan for a new campaign. Due to their "provocative" nature, spots are broadcast on Hulu and late night on Comedy Central.

As for permits - we tried... and tried. The locations manager was drowning in red tape. JC did everything they could to make shooting here a miserable affair.

Here are two Trojan Condom© commercials shot in Downtown JC. One is at Laundry City on C. Columbus, the other is in Walker's Apothecary on Mercer (interior only).

After dealing with every open-handed bureaucrat in JC to get permits, I'm surprised ANYTHING is filmed here...

Not in that list, but I remember Above the Rim (Tupac, Marlon Wayans, Bernie Mac) had a funeral scene shot at the graveyard across the street from Dickinson. I know this specifically because half the school cut that afternoon to get a look at 2pac.

Sid&Nancy, Great flick, and yes your right, the last 2 minutes of the movie's background is filled with what the DTJC waterfront use to look like before the developers got their hands on it.


Yea back in the days when you could see Manhattan from pretty much anywhere in JC, IMHO it was way cooler back then :)

(WM thanks for fixing the link in my above post)

If you click on the link the list will come up. You can then click on the movie/show. Then in the left hand column go down to Other Info and click on filming locations a list of places will pop up. (some have good descriptions, most just bring you back to where you were..bummer)

For example ..Under ….A Bronx Tale

Jersey City, New Jersey, USA
(the boxing match scene is filmed at the armory in jersey city)

*********

Great site …Go JC!!!!

Strange that there are no Law& Order episodes listed. I thought they filed here on Columbus a few years ago.

-“Sid and Nancy” – if you want to see what DTJC was built on watch the last two minutes of the movie. Nice shot of the old Power House. (Wonder if the 2 little homies with the boombox were from JC)

-“The Wrestler” – scenes shot in the soon to be closed Acme over on Garfield. (wonder if the lady ordering the chicken was from JC, she was great)

I guess the angle of Manhattan looked off to me. I suppose they were going for that "countryside heading into Manhattan" look. When I first saw the movie back then, I was like, "where the heck is that?".

Cocktails one of those movies I cant help but watch everytime it comes on. You wanna see JC in all its glory check out the worlds worst movie "Toxic Avenger" and by worst I mean excellent, if you've seen it you know what I mean.

Definitely! It's at about the 3 minute mark on this video. I had started my career in the film biz when they were shooting this movie. I remember they were camped out at an old bar in Queens just a couple blocks from where we were shooting a low budget movie.

Is it Liberty State Park that the bus is driving through in the opening scene of the movie "Cocktail" from the 80s?

Sorry for the stupid question. It looks like LSP, but the angle looks off when looking at Manhattan in the movie.

For the life of me I can't figure where else that scene would be shot, though, in such proximity to Lower Manhattan...looks like marshy parkland.
