This is not a rebus or a connect wall. Or steganography.
This is a visual association puzzle.
Each of these pictures remind me in some way the same place somewhere on this planet.
(And it is not Hollywood).
Your task is to identify that place and show the link it shares with each picture.
PS: Actually the associations are not all visual. But most are.
The place has been (almost) identified.
There still is some work finding the the explanation behind each picture:
Karate kid: found.
Flying kid: not found.
Raptor: 1/2 found.
Vador: not found.
Alien xenomorph: not found.
Falling whale: not found.
Mars attacks: not found.
Pumpkins: not found.
Cup nooles: 1/3 found.
Moai: not found.
Obligatory credits for the pictures.
These are not useful to solve the puzzle.
