Early examples of GPS-type things in movies/TV?

A researcher at my workplace has asked for help finding examples of his topic, early examples of "GIS (Geographic Information Systems) or GPS (Global Positioning Systems) technologies in film and TV", "examples of early precursors to map related technologies". I found someone else's Ask from earlier this year that hits on some likely ones, but he's on the lookout for older and more diverse instances if you can think of any. More details and examples below the fold! [more inside]

If that ain't Lake Minnetonka in "Purple Rain," which lake is it?

In 1984's "Purple Rain," Prince famously tells Apollonia to purify herself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka. They're standing by a lake, so she jumps in, and only then does he tell her "That ain't Lake Minnetonka." I believe it's not--I'm a native Twin Citian and Lake Minnetonka is huge and ritzy. But my question is: What lake IS it? Another Twin Cities lake? Something in L.A.? A soundstage pool? (Unlikely!) Does anyone have the definitive answer. You can watch the scene here, NSFW because she's topless.

What Korean / Asian movies and dramas would I like?

I recently saw A Moment to Remember and my interest in Korean (and East Asian more generally) films and dramas has skyrocketed. Can you recommend some Korean (or other East Asian) movies and/or dramas, based what I've enjoyed? I loved A Moment to Remember. I really liked Spellbound/Chilling Romance and Full House. I liked The Art of Seduction, 200 Pounds Beauty, and Dream High.

My MKV stops conversion halfway through

I'm trying to convert an MKV file to mp4 using Handbrake, but for some reason it tells me it's finished converting 40 minutes through. The completed 40 minutes are excellent quality, but I'm at a complete loss as to why it's stopping so early. The file isn't DRMed to the best of my knowledge. What might be going wrong? How can I get Handbrake to finish converting my video? And if Handbrake can't, what other app for Mac handles MKV conversion without horrible quality loss (like VisualHub or QuickTime do)?

Which dvd editions of Silence of the Lambs and Manhunter are the best quality?

I am looking for the best DVD (not Blu-Ray) prints of Silence of the Lambs and Manhunter. I know Lambs had a Criterion issue and regular issue, a 2-disc issue and perhaps more. Manhunter had a 2-disc issue (orange cover), a single issue, and perhaps others. I currently have the Hannibal Lector trilogy, which is all three movies in slimline cases with no extras. I am not sure if they are the same prints that come in single issue cases or if my prints are the high quality. When I say "best", I am referring to best picture quality first and then extras. I am not sure if newer issues lime my slimline set necessarily have the best picture or not simply because they are newer. My slimline set is just the bare bones movies, btw. So best print and if any extras that would be great. I know Criterion has commentary on Silence.

Do I need to see Avengers in 3D and/or IMAX?

I'm pretty agnostic about 3D and IMAX both. But some films really should be seen 3D (e.g. Avatar) and/or IMAX (e.g. Dark Knight). So...if I view Avengers 2D and/or in non-IMAX, will I be missing out? Each option limits my field of showtime options (and increases expense)...

movies where someone is told to wait 24hrs to file a missing persons report

I'm looking for specific movies where someone is told they have to wait 24 hours to file a missing persons report. (This is not true, and there are many many places that will tell you it's not true "despite what you see in the movies," but it's surprisingly difficult to find those movies.)

Foreign language films

My dad speaks fluent Spanish (and English). I am third-year student of Spanish. Mom and dad know some French. My younger brother (13 years old) only knows English. We all like good plots, good music, and good cinematography. Please suggest some non-English language movies, documentaries, TV series, etc. that we would all enjoy. Bonus points if it's available through Netflix streaming or DVD.

What movie: betrayal by bodyguards

Name the movie: a teenage protagonist triumphs over the bad guy by offering his bodyguards a better deal than they're getting with their employer. I thought this was the conclusion of Masterminds with Patrick Stewart, but according to internet plot summaries, apparently not. I do think the movie the scene is from could be of the same targeted-at-teenagers ilk, but I'm not sure. Any ideas?
