Political correctness has destroyed our country. I don't care that it has destroyed college life. I don't care that it has destroyed the process of hiring employees. I don't care that it has destroyed going to the bathroom. But when it destroys a classic Western it is time for violence.
They remade the Magnificent Seven. The villains are not Mexicans. They are white guys. Actually a mine company who want to develop fossil fuels or something. The leader of the Seven is played by Denzel Washington. The premise is that a white woman in the 1880's went to a black guy for help. Right. You got your historical accuracy right there. The fact of the matter is Denzil would have been hanged just for talking to her but now he is her savior.
The other members of the Seven include a Chinese guy and a Native American. What no transgenders? No lesbians? WTF! This cannot stand.
The fact of the matter is I would have made a fantastic remake of the Magnificent Seven set in the present day that would have starred Denzel. Imagine this. A housing project is being terrorized by a Mexican gang led by a Cartel linked gangster called Talvera. A young black girl goes to the local drug lord played by Denzel and pleads for help. For the chilrens! Or maybe he is a retired drug/gang guy but has a fearsome rep. He goes out and recruits a bunch of other guys. Say a retired Mafia hit man guy who owes him a favor and hates his life now that the Mob is over and wants to go out in a blaze of glory.. A Puerto Rican ex boxer who likes knives and hates Mexicans. A big guy who is down on his luck but wishes he could have been a father to the babies he had with a bunch of baby Momma's. The Charles Bronson part. Make him a disgraced old football player with a fearsome rep like Jack Tatum or something. Man the possibilities are endless. You could have made a great action movie set in the present day using the tenplate of the Seven and had a great politically incorrect movie.
But Hollywood would never do that. I won't be going to see this piece of shit. Just like I won't go to see that Tarrentiono abortion the Hateful Eight even though some of my favorites like Russell and Goggins are in it. I have better Westerns playing in my head than they make these days.
Maybe I can make that story a continuing series here at Lems? Nah. Spinelli would get mad. He hates repetition. Never mind.
