The moviie, and others like it, are great actions adventures which a wide variety of people and ages can enjoy. Why then do movie makers insist on including language that is going to offend a large portion of their audience? " G___ D___" and J____ C____" just turn alot of people off. There are alot of words in the English language, so find better ones and then produce the movie. I think people will love. it.
I agree. I understand that swearing really happens, but there are better choices.
Yes even through swearing happens it is out of place in the period this movie is trying to present
oh fuddlesticks! he shot me!
Wow, if you think that's offensive better not read my Treasure Road script.... ;)
In the words of W.C. Fields. "Mother of Pearl" and "Godfrey Daniels".
The use of foul language shows lack of imagination and development by the writer. It shows a weak scene with weak dialog.
I just happened to stumble upon this thread and I find it funny that the OP who shares the same name as a pretty well known writer/director would be complaining about bad language when the said director is very much an advocate for the opposite.
Just my two cents and probably no one will ever see this post.
One: Perhaps the title should be "Why must I be offended?"
Two: Christians make up %33 percent of the world pop.
Three: I believe many people in the military faced with impending doom, an alcoholic zeppelin pilot and nazi's would say such words. Knowing many military personal and being raised for 12 years in the armed services around enlisted and officers.
Four: Someone will be offended. Certainly the Germans aren't going to love this story, to begin with...the world keeps rubbing their nose in WWII. They have done much to try to right those wrongs...But the OP wasn't upset by this at all...
If a character you are telling the story with would cuss/swear/take someone even their own god's name in vain...then how could you not write that. The amount of "cursing" in this is minor.
Race Vanderdecken...it shows the characters personality...this isn't an essay written to congress. WC fields was also an atheist...I'd be curious to know if an atheist found the use of God or Jesus as so done in this film as offensive. Especially since he used "Godfrey Daniel!" to replace GD since the censors would not let him say GD at the time. He was against censorship...He also used racist humor some...Go figure...early 1900s...who would have thought..
I find this ridiculous.
