I've come to realize that way to many movies made today are set in New York City or Los Angeles. Although these are great cities to set a movie in, I would like to see smaller or less popular cities to be the setting for a hollywood film.

For example, Bruce Almighty, was set in Buffalo, NY. No problem with that

What are some cities (other than New York and LA) that you would like to see movies set in......

Toronto needs more films featuring 'Toronto', not posing as New York or Chicago or some other city.

I'd like to see more "normal" movies set in Detroit. What we seem to get stuck with are the gangsta/crime dramas.

e.g. 8 Mile, Assault on Precinct 13, Exit Wounds, etc.

Boston, Montreal, or Toronto would be unique. Whenever Boston's in movies or TV, I usually think of lawyer shows, or police dramas. Montreal, I can't think any movie recently. Toronto, seen only in Canadian indie films as "Toronto" and not "New York".

There are plenty of Chinese-language films in HK though, many of which are dubbed or subtitled.

LA gets to much attention in the movies. Its not like anyone never saw LA in a movie. I say... Chicago as a big city gets ignored by the media. The most recent movies that was flim in chicago was..

I, Robot and Mean Girls(linsay lohan, and yes thats was film in a chicago suburb at skokie or evanston, I forgot)

Spiderman could use the "L" and swing from the skyscraper, with an evil mastermind in an island he made in the middle of Lake Michigan...
