Re: Movies that OFFEND you

Hand up here, I'm a big Underworld Fan, and also like the Resident Evil movies!

I've not been offended by a movie, it's just that some don't appeal to me, so I don't bother watching them. It's like I have absolutely no wish to ever watch Human Centipede EVER!

Offence is often in the eye of the beholder.

The classic ZULU has been complained about, with some people claiming it's racist, despite the fact that although it's a colonial war movie, it shows the Zulus in a sympathetic light, a deliberate choice by Cy Enfield and Stanley Baker. It always tickles me though how many years ago when I was still at school, as part of a celebration of African History, the BBC showed ZULU. I'd have thought surely the better movie would have been ZULU DAWN, where the British lost!
