Forget the Mandarin dude! We have NICOLAS CAGE playing a "wise" Chinese man in what's supposed to be the biggest movies ever, imagine how that will get people pissed? Ok the movie is called Werewolf Women of the SS (by Rob Zombie) hahaha, Nicolas Cage as that wise china dude looks so damn fun!!!The Gentleman said:I'm surprised you didn't bring up the Mandarin [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/columns/moviebob/10006-Lets-Watch-The-Iron-Man-3-Trailer.2] when you were talking about "yellowface" racial acting. Hell, just us responding to that article had an interesting conversation on how to adapt the character to the modern hair-trigger racial response...
Because it is a trend lately to look for any lil reason to be offended.theSteamSupported said:
Ditto, this is the first I have heard of bad things from the film.Bara_no_Hime said:...?
Apparently I've missed all this coal-raking. I've heard nothing but good things about the film, and went to see it on those good things, and loved it.
Who's saying bad things about the film? I want to go tell those people why they're wrong.
that is the most confusing analogy I have ever read. which guy is which in the which thing was the thing, and the guy that the thing that makes it true, and false...unacomn said:Ah, context, the thing that almost everyone ignores when starting an argument over something. Reminds me of the time when that thing happened with that guy that said something and then the other guy said half of what the guy said and it meant something totally different that really riled up a lot of other guys and they got the guy that said the thing to try to explain what he said but every time he tried the other guy and the guys kept saying he said the other thing and he was just trying to cover up even though they know he said the other thing as well but they don't care since that only one thing makes the guy look bad and the other guy look good and they like the other guy more.
So, basically everything ever.
Cause its not as fun keeping something in context, as it is bitching about it out of context.theSteamSupported said:
That. THAT. THAT AGAIN. I fear saying my mind sometimes, simply because it could be considered racism (in Brazil you don't have to take a racist ACT to commit the crime, simply stating a racist comment would be enough). But it's funny how, when YOU accuse certain groups of something, or simply state a belief, no matter how stupid and unfounded, then they say it's merely their religion, and we're all human and then you get sued and maybe even arrested. But when it comes to THEIR opinion, they DO see themselves as a better RACE, and whenever some shit falls on them they attack with past traumas, past traumas that were horrible and are now the very basis of their international (shotgun)politics with the rest of the WORLD.canadamus_prime said:Funny you should choose this particular topic 'cause I was just thinking about how ridiculous all these race issues have gotten. It seems to be that creative people need to walk on eggshells and broken glass for fear of being accused of being racist, sexist, or whatever. Heaven forbid these groups have to endure the same criticism and cultural commentary that everyone else does. And by "everyone" I mean the white heterosexual anglosaxon male because it seems that anyone who doesn't fit that description is some sort of minority and therefore immune to criticism and/or cultural commentary . ¬___¬
And since I, myself, am a white heterosexual male, I'm sure someone's going to accuse me of being racist or sexist or whatever just for pointing that out.
