A certain segment of the population has been champing at the bit to see black villains in movies. Will they even mention that these fisherman turned pirates out of necessity to fight things like French freighters dumping nuclear waste in Somalia's waters?
Does anyone else think the Tom Hanks movie about Somali pirates will be huge?

I think men from Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea are so handsome. Are they mixed with Arabs? They have actual curls, much different hair texture than many other Africans, usually (but not always) their hair is tight coils. The men from the region are unmistakable. I was in Norway a few years ago and I knew right away the black men I saw were Somali refugees.

There was a Danish film with a similar plot that nobody went to see. Hijacking it was called. Was released a few months ago.

It is based on a true story! The real question is will Tom Hank's drop pants and pee like he has in most of his other flicks?

Yes! I've heard there will be a scene where Catherine Keener's character gets stung by a jellyfish so Tom Hanks pees on her to ease the pain!

Tom hanks is as boring as Kevin Costner.

Tom hanks isn't Jewish.

I have no idea if the movie will represent the pirates in an intelligent and fair way, OP. But I do think it will be huge, mostly because Paul Greengrass is a great director.
Tom Hanks is not Jewish, r7. Where the fuck did you get that from? Even if he were Jewish, which he isn't, why not take your anti-Semitic ignorant crap and go fuck yourself!

They basically showed the entire film last night during an ad on Breaking Bad except or the ending. And since it's a real story, we know the ending.

For anyone interested, Hanks parents were Catholic and Mormon, is of English and Portuguese descent, and was evangelical as a teenager.
Nice try, r7. Perhaps you should pick on an actually Jewish target for your racist bullshit.

Am not surprised he is Portuguese. That explains a lot. Including a Greek wife.

A couple of weeks ago, on Talk Like A Pirate Day, I tweeted this photo. Nobody got it. Why is everyone so dull?

Tom Hanks wears a wig, correct? Too bad. His hair was nice when he was younger, and it's no shame to be a bald man when you're pushing fifty.

All the more reason to be a proud, bald, old man.

Oh THAT'S why they did it. I always wondered.

Your point, r11?

Is this about the Merchant and Marine ship the pirates took over and kidnapped the Captain? It will be interesting to see if it follows what really happened.

DEATH to "Does anyone else think?" and "Am I the only one who thinks?"

Yes, but does Hanks' "Captain Phillips" utter any lines about a nice bowl of "Chowdah"?

If you'd let them continue on the path of self determination, things would've been fine but we just had to intervene. Find the biggest bullies and prop them up.

I hope they show how the pirates get shot in the head. They deserve to die.
