3. Dorothy's Apartment - Blue Velvet (1986)
In the film: Jeffrey and his girl Sandy stare at the square apartment building that's home to troubled Dorothy. Somewhere in there, something awful is probably going on. Well, this is a David Lynch movie...
The Google view: Daylight flushes out the sense of menace from the redbrick, but a winking traffic light is a Lynchian trademark at any time.
4. The Nakatomi Plaza - Die Hard (1988)
In the film: The stylish skyscraper staging ground for Bruce Willis' one-man scrap against theving Euro-terrorists. The roof looks as intricately angular as a piece of origami, and it crumples like paper thanks to nasty Hans' explosives.
The Google view: Actually, it’s the much less exotic-sounding Fox Plaza, corporate home of the studio behind the film. The fancy angles are real enough if you crimp your neck to get a look from street level.
