Eh, fair. I don't think one dude's boycott is gonna do much, tho.

True, but my food's also better than most theaters.  Come by for a movie, sometime.  I'll show you how a real man makes nachos!

If you don't mind putting the source code somewhere, I may make a nachos build as well.

Unstable nachos are acceptable too.

Let's just say I like mine fully-loaded.

Unstable nachos are acceptable too.

Unfortunately, I just do it all by hand using command-line kung fu.

Also, unstable nachos...hm.  Anti-matter nachos.  Good or bad?

So when a black actor is discussed, you're worried that he'll get cast because of politics, but ScarJo in the role of an explicitly Japanese woman in a thematically Japanese work is not politics because something something best actor for the role. And also there should be a James Bond for black people because we need to keep the integrity of the role intact. But casting a white actor as a Japanese woman is okay. Because #notallroles.

Sometimes I ask myself "hmm, should I ease up on UP?" Thank you for snapping me out of it.

Oh, and about that 'there's no racism in casting' bullshit...

Don't put words in my mouth.  I never said there was no racism in casting.  Just look at the casting calls for the Last Airbender movie.  And I hate ScarJo being cast as a Japanese woman as much as you do.  It's indefensible.

Oh, right, that was Contrarian.  Nevermind. However, I think I can be forgiven since a lot of the things you say are very similar to whatever bilge Contrarian spews on any given day.

I wouldn't particularly mind a black actor being cast as James Bond, but I think it would be better to have an original IP.

So, in other words, you want a separate, but equal version of James Bond for black people.

Not exactly.  See, I have zero problem with a black James Bond.  My fear is that they might cast a black actor for the wrong reasons.  I never liked politically-charged racebending, and I doubt many others would.

As for my thoughts on Idris Elba, I think he's too old for the part.  Look at what happened when they cast Roger Moore.

Oh fuck it, ageism AND racism etc.

Alls I want is a bit of consistency in the way people apply their principles.  I want to see a new adaptation of Henry V with a Korean chick playing the King and a new biopic of Rosa Parks with the title character played by John Cena.

If you're doing it, do it properly for fuck's sake.

 That sounds like the most bizarre film I would never grow tired of. Would need a good director though
