Mapping the movies

I am still amazed about Google Maps and still patiently waiting for them to fully support Europe (currently, just a part of Prague is visible in hi-res, including my house. Meanwhile, I am trying to find various interesting locations on the U.S. map. For example, after I saw WAR OF THE WORLDS, I found out that Tom Cruise's character probably lives here amd the ferry incident happened right here (unfortunately, no detailed satellite shot is available). I also tried to find Stonehenge and the crater from STARMAN but it seems detailed maps are also missing for those areas.

Although I live in a small town, I found satellite snapshot of my house at geoportal.cenia.cz.
