Jen,

Would Hollywoodland (2006) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) qualify for your poll? They are both set in the Los Angeles area.

Also, your list still links to the IMDb Poll message board instead of this thread.

I added them, plus Somewhere. And fixed the link. Thanks. I thought I changed all the links on the suggestions but please let me know if you find any more.

Jen,

I will tell you about broken links and links that still go to the IMDb Poll message board as I encounter them.

The last two weeks has been akin to drinking from a fire hydrant.

No Crash? That's the film I thought of when I first read the poll title.

Good call - I've added it (will take a while to actually show up on the poll).

Thank you. My original text in the suggestion now has some spaces missing...?

And can you please put the poll url in the initial suggestion post, like we did on the old board? Thanks!

Strange things happen when I try to edit on my phone. I should stop doing that. I think it looks right now.

I'm surprised "The Big Lebowski" isn't on here.
