…and wondered why Boazania, the Neo-Empire, Galactor, and all the conquest-loving villains keep attacking Japan? Is it some kind of low self-esteem that prevents them from attacking New York, the pop-culturally-established focal point of all disasters?

It’s like how Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah pointed out why the Amazon women from Planet Xxx would bother attacking a small village.

And then it hits me that only Hollywood would glorify New York (which is weird, because Hollywood is in Los Angeles) as the location for most of its action movies.

Even if, in the end, all the production is done in Toronto, nowadays. Or Prague.

That’s why I appreciated how Hancock chose Los Angeles as his base of operations. Well, at least until the last 5 minutes of the movie…
