Brownwashing. The UK is already a South Asian nation in some way.

Also go to https://imdb.com/title/tt9243804/fullcredits/cast?ref_=m_ttfc_3 past all the Indians, and the placeholder type character names (King, Queen, Magician, Middle Sister, wow, really just the hooker OCs got names there), and go to the bottom. This is where I actually laughed aloud, like the first burst of laughter in the film theater at the end of In the Mouth of Madness. "Oh, God."

I don't get it, it's all children at the bottom.

And also Townsfolk with her Sideshow Bob clown hair.

The same style that they used on Domino, after they went negative colors on her characters, and promptly killed a stuntswoman because you can't fit in a helmet with that.

The very bottom?

I mean it shouldn't be shocking me by now, I just really started laughing when I saw "Soldier 2" and his hairstyle.

Oh, that doesn't shock me anymore. I imagine all movies are like that.

I don't get the obsession with these weird hair styles, honestly. Is it "more black" to have ridiculous hair?

You'd be very hard pressed to find anyone black and in Africa with any sort of big hair. Commonly they're just going skinhead, men and women.

Why did he take the role? Because he’s subverting English history and mythos. He doesn’t want the face of English stories to be that an English man, an Anglo-Saxon, but rather the face of an non-European immigrant, of a new comer. He wants to take your place in your own history and heroic stories, and he wants to be celebrated for it.

For my part, I say no. Not now, not ever.

And actually I got confused too - Beowulf is supposed to be a Swedish Geat actually.

Did you confuse Gawain with Beowulf perhaps?

Ironically, I pulled a self-insert in my fervor to respond. Which is what I was trying to rail against in the first place. My sails need wind, where has it gone?

I still hate it, regardless.
