10,000 BC is not Politically/Genetically Correct?

10000-bc-funny.png

I found this on a site called dcmoviegirl this morning. Here is an excerpt from her review of 10,000 BC:

“Oh boy, where to begin?? Well, how about the fact the our two main characters are the only white people in a movie, within a SEA of people of color…INCLUDING THEIR OWN TRIBE. …Yes, you read that right. Genetic miracles happened in 10,000 B.C., apparently.”

To read the rest of this film review, go here. You will be entertained during the read. Guaranteed. I was. My review of 10,000 BC is here.

    It seems overly obvious to me that this movie is a fictional movie of fictional characters in a fictional time or fictional era. Did anyone notice the fictional animals? Oh ,did I say “FICTIONAL!!!!”
    the actors are non denominational as well as . there is no racial overtones there ,only in the mind of the individual viewing this fictional film.

    Hey, Muhdeeb and filmbook,

    If you read my comments, you’ll see a
    nice reversed scenerio, of which you should have no problem, with it being fictional and all. :)…Of course, that would never happen, but that’s beside the point.
    Right?

    I read the comments and the reverse scenario. My overall problem is with the quality of the film itself. I doubt the person who wrote the script was clever enough to include racial overtones yet deliver the cope-out, uninspired ending this film has.

    It doesn’t take cleverness to do racist things. In fact, the opposite is a prerequisite.

    I am in 100% agreement with you on that. Judging a person because of skin pigment is troglodytic.
