5) Do the RIght Thing
There have been so many movies and TV shows shot in Brooklyn, but "Do the Right Thing" was made by a Brooklyn filmmaker, Spike Lee, and defines a place and time in Brooklyn that is essential to understanding Brooklyn's history. Plus? This was the movie that Barack and Michelle Obama saw on their first date. Mitt and Ann Romney saw "Birth of a Nation." No! No, they didn't. They saw "The Sound of Music." Which DEFINITELY does not take place in Brooklyn. Not even close.
