The Shylock character in The Merchant of Venice is a greedy money-lending jew.

Kajaki (2014)

10/10 not because of the actual movie but the message and tribute it represents. Worth a watch, don't expect much action but lots of screaming and ugly scenes.

so? why do you explain it to me, you think I write words without knowing their origin?
do you know that long time ago "shylock" became common noun for greedy person?

I do, but that's why some people think it's racist.

Because the existence of one character who fits the stereotype of the greedy money-grubbing jew, clearly suggests all jews are greedy and money-grubbing. Because as we all know, all people of an ethnicity are the same. /sarcasm

People who suggest such thing probably cried politically correct blood tears when saw Len Grossman character and then realized that Tom Cruise wasn't immediately crucified for his crimes against jewish people of Hollywood.

Certainly seems that way.

Did you know that 'Oriental' is a common adjective used to describe objects that are derived from or originated in the East, yet words and their implications change with the context they're used in?

Let's look at an example:
Bobby: I don't think I like that yellow oriental rug.
Billy: You're right Bobby, let's keep shopping.

Now let's change the context:
Bobby: I don't think I like that yellow oriental.
Billy: Jesus Bobby this isn't the '50s!



'Shylock' is as much a noun for a greedy person as 'WOP' is a shorter way of addressing someone without immigration papers.

But it's a free forum, so you can refer to a group of mostly Jewish people (Hollywood) in the same way an anti-Semite would. But hopefully you're not ignorant enough to walk around Brooklyn calling every street vendor that rips you off a 'Shylock,' because I personally don't think you'd make it more than 2 blocks.

And since you brought it up:
Tropic Thunder:

It's worth a watch for anyone who hasn't seen it. Tom Cruise's and RDJ's characters are hilarious. The movie's funny, stupid and self-aware, and one helluva quotable movie.

7/10

Good for you to know your own language and parading with phrase that became anti-asian slur from out of nowhere. I guess that phrase you used demonstrates how, in your opinion and maybe in Anti-Defamation League's opinion shyloc is also a slur. So, basically, in our times people discover how more and more words could be offensive to someone and then rush to apologize for using them and banning them like Biden did.

This is hilarious and I won't use it as a guide for me. If I would want to offend certain ethnic groups and races, I will find a better words and "shyloc" won't be one of them and if ADL ain't down with that, I've got two words for them - too bad.

So yeah, Les Grossman and his associates are examples of shylocs and next summer those guys' 300 million $ franchise "American Neon Samurai" with Justin Bieber in title role and PG rating will knock you off your feet.

I watched The Hangover Part II and you know what? I don't get the hate people have for these movies. They are exactly what they're advertised as, and that's fine. I wanted to watch stupid humour, I got stupid humour. I enjoyed it.
