Google and cinematic excellence don't typically go hand-in-hand, but one incredibly clever Tumblr has changed that. 

On Google Street Scene, scenes from cult classics are reimagined as Google Street View shots. A specific film location is graffed onto the Google map, and then, presto: You've got a piece of film nostalgia for the Internet age. 

“I got the idea after someone posted this very fake image on a message board,” blog creator Tre Baker told Entertainment Weekly. “We started talking about making fake street views, and I put up that Mystery Train one. That led to the Tumblr.”

As Motherboard points out, the blog looks relatively new, "with only a smattering of submissions." Here are our favorites so far: 

Blue Velvet (1986)


Goodfellas (1990)


 

Mystery Train (1989)
