SPOILERS CONTAINED WITHIN! GO NO FURTHER IF YE FEAR THE SPOILERS!
Just watched Captain Phillips with mom and stepdad and my mom called the Somali pirates "the bad guys". Which they really weren't, because they were only pirate-ing because they were forced to by guys with guns. But no, they were the "bad" ones because they were kidnapping Tom Hanks. Bad brown guys vs. noble white guy. I don't know if I liked this movie or not (leaning towards not) because it's all so damned trite. Can we have a movie in which the bad brown guys do NOT get shot at the end? What a fucking disappointment.
Yes, I know that it's based on a true story. This doesn't make me think it's any less of a shitty story.
