I love movies and Texas has had some iconic films set here. I bet you didn't know some of these movies were actually shot in our state.

With my list today, I wanted to talk about the obscure movies that are shot in Texas. For instance an example of what I am NOT looking for on my list is something like 'Dazed and Confused'. Love that movie, it clearly takes place in Texas and is clearly shot here as well.

Today I am looking at the movies that are shot in Texas, but you don't know they're shot in Texas. This means A LOT of classics are thrown out. Friday Night Lights, Armageddon, Apollo 13, just to name a few. I already knew about some of these names below because I know certain directors love to shoot in Texas. For instance, you will be seeing lots of Robert Rodriquez below.

However, some of these were just quick scenes filmed in our state. One of them is honestly just a few seconds before the credits roll in a movie. If you guys enjoy the list, I may bust out another ten in the future. Also if you know of any, let me know.

It pains me that I can't throw one of my favorite Texas movies in here. 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure'. I still have not had the balls to go into a Texas bar and yell "THE STARS AT NIGHT ARE BIG AND BRIGHT". Just to see if you folks down here will finish with 'Deep in the Heart of Texas!"
