If you dislike it, you are a RACIST!
20 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Baggin on All-Black Julius Caesar film: ...is what the producers apparently had in mind.

I mean cmon, who on earth would speak ill of this new and excellent re-telling of an old tale. Only hood-wearing red-neck racists, right?

A while from now, after I get over how brutally brilliant this version is....I'd like to see it done again, but this time with only Asians! How grand with THAT be? Then later, South Americans only! Then perhaps those jolly islanders! Caesar eating poi with his fingers??? WOW! How "different" would THAT be? Of course, the indigenous peoples of the northernmost areas also deserve a go at wielding supreme Roman power (in film form), and I look forward with great anticipation at the first time we'll see Julie (what we like to call him at the office) eating blubber in a traditional igloo, icy frost visible with each spoken word. BANG! POW! Talk about a one-two punch, eh? Those animal-wearin Mongolian heathens will be next, and I look forward to that version the least, since their most famous character already had a great deal of power and notoriety. I can think of a lot more deserving cultures then the Mongol hordes. Like....ummm.....

OH SNAP! THE MOTHERLOAD! American INDIANS!!!! Sweet baby Jesus that will be grand! Imagine the implications! Imagine the grandeur! You get the indigenous North American nobility on one side, and the magnificence of the mighty and majestic (and Meaty...cause it's also an M-word) Roman empire on the other! The two were legitimately MEANT to go together! I can hardly contain myself! How long will we have to wait? Hurry pleeeeeeeeeease! Hopefully not too long, goshdarnit! Only as long as it takes another set of comical and shameless producers to see an angle. An angle which, THANK GOD, wont involve any of that frightfully silly and boring talent/skill needed to write/produce/direct an original tale which isn't suckaliciously derivative, hasn't already been made, or isn't trying to put a cool and hip new twist on an old and tired story...often by simply changing the race of the main characters!

MMMMMMMM MMMMMMM GOOOOD!

I LOVE THIS MOVIE! I LOVE WHAT IT STANDS FOR! I LOVE CHICKEN!

Please see this movie, and don't be racist! PEACE!
