What I can say about New York (City)

I've never been to New York City, at least, not that I can recall. However, media has, for various reasons, touched upon the city in a number of formats, in a number of ways, for a number of years. Without having ever been to New York City, I can say the following about it.

  1. Stay out of New York City.
  2. Common wisdom is right, New Yorkers are less human than people in other cities.
  3. Hollywood and New York City have more in common than you'd think.
  4. If something bad is going to happen to the United States, it'll start in New York City.

The initial reason I decided to write down these simple ideas was because I had just watched The Invasion this morning. Years ago, I wrote a, oft-referred-to, piece on beautiful women, and Nicole Kidman was not present on that list. However, as she gets older, I enjoy her movies all the more.

The movie was good, more so because, as my sister pointed out, there didn't seem to be any wasted scenes; every scene held some value within it. I have not seen the original movie that this is derived from, but I will indeed be looking at Netflix this evening to see if I can watch it online.
