    Will it be genuinely funny or briefly funny and of course full of typical bad german political messages like Wonder Womans beach scene? You know Taika Wahiti and Scarlet Johanasson are both Jewish right? I was interested by this and the first thing i thought to myself was i bet this is where all the closet Jewish actors come out because i know how Hollywood works.


    Maybe i am wrong, But i normally get my hunch right.

    This looks like ass.
    Reminds me of that British Rambo comedy from years ago.

    Well you sound anti-semetic as hell.

    Religiously, the director doesn’t practice any faith, and culturally, he identifies more as Maori.

    Did I spot Stephen Merchant? This has my attention.

    Actually looks quite funny.

    Initial reviews aren't great, I guess we'll find out in 5 weeks.

    Erm i am pretty sure you are just throwing around labels you do not understand. Those people in Hollywood are not semetic, Semetic is an actual group with DNA links to the Israelites and have a middle eastern profile. These people are European converts to Judaism which sadly means they are not sementic so how can i be anti semetic?


    All i am doing is observing what they do in Hollywood but if you say anything wrong out comes the anti semetic fire hose.

    Actually;

    "Antisemitism (also spelled anti-semitism or anti-Semitism) is hostility to, prejudice, or discrimination against Jews."

    Your post shows a lovely subtext of hostility so I would say yes, you are in danger of being anti-semitic. Anyone who brings up that sort of thing when discussing a movie FFS, well... :rolleyes:
