After an amazing weekend in D.C. with my sister, I wanted to create a mini-collection of movies that are set there. While most of the movies set in D.C. have to do with politics, some of them are sci-fi and create a world overtaken by supernatural beings. I love the backdrop that D.C. provides because the white marble buildings and monuments create a powerful and memorable environment. D.C. is a unique city, and even though I really like it, every time I visit I get a little anxious and lazy feeling because of how busy everyone around me appears to be. Maybe I’ll just live vicariously through these movies in the comfort of my own room eating these (while not-so-secretly wishing I were eating these instead).
