Battle: Los Angeles Theory

Jacked from The Guardian:

Does any city on the planet suffer from a more debilitating case of municipal self-loathing than Los Angeles?

I only ask because LA, the city I live in and love beyond all reason, is, by some considerable measure, the world-class megalopolis most often destroyed, nuked, alien-invaded, bombed-flat, depopulated, dystopianised or demonised in the movies. When film-makers set out to do in their own metropolis, and expend on the task such degrees of wild-eyed, palm-rubbing glee, you have to wonder why they ever bothered to move here in the first place.
