Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Yesterday, in reaction to a Texas-themed movie festival that left Houston off its schedule, we posted a list of five great movies filmed in Houston. We got a few retweets, a few kind comments, a few shares on Facebook. But reader Robert Boyd was less than thrilled with our selections.

In what universe is Robocop 2 (or Reality Bites or Urban Cowboy) a great movie? Have some shame. At least add Brewster McCloud and Paris, Texas to the list.

One reader, who only signed in as "Guest," was also annoyed that Brewster McCloud had been forgotten.

Seriously? No Brewster McCloud?!?! Also, worth mentioning; My Best Friend is a Vampire.

The Robert Altman gem was left off the list because I don't know why, but we'll keep it in mind the next time we make a list of Texas movies for sure.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
