    Default Sky Race Warnings on movies

    Sky has started putting warnings on movies for outdated values. Fair enough but have you seen some of these on the list. Just about every film may have to have a warning the way this is going.

    The Aliens one is baffling

    Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)

    The only non-white character in the film Mr Yunioshi is played by white actor Mickey Rooney. Pretending to be a Japanese man, he wears fake teeth and puts on a Japanese accent.

    The Jungle Book (1967 and 2016 live-action remake)

    There have been suggestions the character of orangutang King Louie, which did not feature in Rudyard Kipling's original novel, implied inequality between African Americans and Caucasians. It has also been claimed the character's portrayal is based on what white people thought about black people at the time, such as his poorer linguistic skills and him wanting to be 'like the other men'.

    Aladdin (1992)

    Critics have expressed concerns over the story's use of Orientalist stereotypes, while casting decisions also came under scrutiny, with Aladdin, Princess Jasmine and the genie played by white actors in the animation.

    The Goonies (1985)

    The portrayal of Clever Data, a gadget freak who helps the boys in situations, speaks in a stereotypically Asian accent.

    Dumbo (1941)

    Dumbo has been accused of containing racist stereotypes of African Americans at the time in the form of black crows, who use jive-like speech patterns. The main bird is even named Jim Crow, a nod to the racist segregationist Jim Crow laws of the time, and is voiced by a white actor.

    Aliens (1986)

    The film has been accused of 'hi-tech racism and android apartheid' due to the way in which humans in the film deal with the presence of 'other'. It has been suggested the character of Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver, treated them with fear and suspicion.

    Trading Places (1983)

    The film was littered with controversies, including Dan Akroyd wearing blackface, continuous stereotyping of black people and women and frequent use of the 'n-word' throughout the movie.

    Flash Gordon (1980)

    The film's antagonist, Ming the Merciless, played by Max von Sydow, is viewed as a classic example of 'Yellow Peril' xenophobia.

    Gone With The Wind (1939)

    Gone With The Wind has been criticised for romanticising slavery and glosses over the horrors of slavery. The film also features the 'n-word' throughout, which was used in the book.

    Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

    Some criticised the film for feeding on racial stereotypes and on Western beliefs that Arabs needed foreigners to guide them.

    Tropic Thunder (200

    Robert Downey Jr appeared in blackface for the comedy blockbuster, while many considered use of the word 'retard', uttered 17 times in the film to denote a person with learning difficulties, as unacceptable.

    The Jazz Singer (1927)

    The musical drama was criticised for Al Jolson's use of blackface, though many have since pointed to the fact the actor was a civil rights advocate, often backing projects by black artists, including playwright Garland Anderson.

    The Littlest Rebel (1935)

    Perhaps Shirley Temple's most controversial movie, The Littlest Rebel, in which she appears in blackface, is also accused of glorifying Confederate ideals, with black slaves appearing unhappy to be set free.

    The Lone Ranger (2013)

    Questions were raised over Johnny Depp's portrayal of Tonto, a Native American, as it sparked a debate over whether actors should play a race other than their own. The actor himself said he considered the role an attempt to 'try to right the wrongs of the past', meaning poor portrayals of Natives in Hollywood.

    Balls of Fury (2007)

    The ping-pong based comedy starring Christopher Walken was criticised for caricaturing Asian characters and carrying racist jokes and a running gag making fun of blind people.

    The Last Samurai (2003)

    Tom Cruise's role as a captain hired to train the Japanese army to fight a Samurai rebellion is considered problematic by some for the sense of American superiority portrayed in the film.

    Outdated values? Little Britain isn't so old and is chopped too. We can and should mock everyone. The Cultural Marxism is running amok and kids are being brainwashed.

    I was once compared to Woody from Toy Story. Was this racism? I demand it now come with a warning! How dare they compare a white man with big eyes to a cowboy toy. Racism!

    It's stupid. Do we now have Indiana Jones with a warning in case the millions of Nazi's (in Beanz head) get triggered? Mental.

    Insane. Trading places showed the views of two elderly brothers in the early 80s. 12 years a slave etc shows the views from another time period.

    What about Spartacus, gladiator etc.

    See no evil hear no evil mocks the blind and deaf. It will be impossible to list a film that doesn't have something in it that could be interpereted as offensive.

    Ha!

    So they are still showing them but including a legal disclaimer because Murdoch doesn't want to be sued or something?

    A lot of people are moaning because they want to be as outraged as those being offended by the Films themselves and are pissed they are not banned outright, and i am assuming being showed unedited?

    Fucking hell man...1st world Problems


    As a Brit i am offended by the word 'Movies' can we change the title to 'Sky Race Warnings on Films' please.

    Bin Sky ..Murdoch is a edited horrible name cunt anyway

    That may not be book burning, but it is certainly tearing out several pages 'for your own good'.

    This is a Communist/Fascist slippery slope. Comedy can be racist. If you don't enjoy it then do not watch it. The basis of most comedy is at the expense of something else.

    They'd have a field day with the old cartoons we grew up on as kids.

    Speedy Gonzalez..well duh.

    Slowpoke Rodriquez his cousin...double whamey. Stereotype PLUS hurtful insult to those afflicted with down syndrome

    Daffy Duck...insults those with speech impediments AND anger issues

    Yosemite Sam...clearly a hot tempered violent man of the South who fires guns indiscriminately AND ridicule's little people

    Captain Caveman...disparages the homeless who suffer multi personality disorder

    Great Grape Ape...well he's an ape so

    Elmer Fudd...just another guy with a little man complex packing heat looking for trouble!

    Pebbles Flintstone...who's the sick SOB who thought sexualizing a toddler showing middrift was expectable ffs

    Ranger Smith...he's a pig with a badge and should not be glamorized

    Bluto...fat shaming

    Wimpy...the impoverished with eating disorders shall not be insulted

    Popeye...another violent overly sarcastic white dude with a drug dependency. I see a pattern

    Porky Pig...a pantsless stuttering perverted pig should not be glorified

    Optimus Prime...Simply on its face 'Prime' infers dominance and superiority. Can't have that.

    Olive Oil...anorexia and nymphomania is not a laughing matter.

    The Crows from Dumbo...well shat ok fait enough, clearly racist

    Why would you be sued for showing Breakfast at Tiffany's? If that is the case perhaps the law might be....wrong.

    I am against woke culture full stop. I have a copy of Breakfast at Tiffany's in my home and they will have to take it from my cold dead hands before I ever cede Audrey Hepburn acting as a lost soul prostitute with a nameless cat.

    Once they tried to re air "Fast Times" and "Up In Smoke" on commercial TV when I was a kid I became defiantly opposed to repackaging classic cinema and arts. Even deleted the carrot scene ffs . Oh and Chong had a duffel bag full of 'diamonds' .
