The comedy writers at Cracked.com have compiled a fun list of famous location shots that are constantly reused in film and television. It incorporates famous sets — real mansions that worked in a pinch for Tim Burton and the Coen Brothers — as well as distinctive natural landmarks that just never seem to go away.

Many of the films and television shows mentioned in this article are part of our collection. Search our catalog for them if you want to see more of these shots in action.
