    Default Ethnic Alternatives to Hit US/UK Entertainment

    [warning: dark sense of humour- may not be to your taste]

    Suggestion #234 (thanks to my brother for this one):
    [Iraqi] Police Academy: what little of a plot there is is constantly disrupted by the killing of the main characters in market bombs. That would explain all the sequels.


    Suggestion #235:
    Coach Kamran
    [instead of Carter]: 'inspirational' Pakistani who becomes a basketball coach in a run-down rural school. He's full of the usual cliched crap about 'change', hope, wanting to succeed, doing your best etc. Unfortunately for them he turns out to be a trickster and mis-appropriates school funds. The school is forced to close down and the student body is sold into slavery. This one is a real feel-good film.


    Suggestion #236:
    Like James Bond, but called, simply, Sir Edward. About a vertically-challenged, extremely unselfconscious Bangladeshi sellout who thinks he's all that but is actually a noxious turd. Follow him on his hilarious misadventures. Cuts to public services due to the recession mean that instead of wining and dining the chicks this secret agent is forced to spend nights in discount hotels, and his MI6 credit card has a 4.50 charge limit. Most of his time is spent following the vicissitudes of British politics, paying court to the members of whichever party happens to be in power. The moral of the story is that if you're really desperate to succeed and you're useless at everything, you'll probably be mediocre all your life and your best bet is to attach yourself to the powers that be- who will pet and feed you.

    Suggestion #237:
    [Somali] Pirates of the Mediterranean:
    low-budget pirate flick. The focus is on dish-washer-turned-pirate, Abdi. I don't know what else to say really. There is a lot of qat use in this film, viewer discretion is advised.

    Suggestion #238
    [title?] Taut thriller about an incorruptible Internal Affairs cop in Lebanon. The film is, ya'ni, ikteer libnani, in that the protagonist, seeing how hopeless the fight against corruption in his basketcase of a country is, hangs himself.

    Suggestion #239:
    Dr Doolittle
    [may be some copyright issues here]: About a mild-mannered senior lecturer at the University of Middlesex whose name may or may not be Usama. He feels persecuted, feels that nobody understands him, that others are intolerant and unenlightened, before coming to the inevitable realisation of those in this condition- that he is gay. The film is about his coming out. Some talking porpoises have been thrown in for fun.

    Suggestion #240:
    Beverly Hills Shaykh
    : About the litigious and somewhat flaky shaykh of a Naqshbandi sub-tariqa who 'lives it up' in Beverly Hills. He enjoys chillin' with his homies (yo dawg), most of whom are hawkish pro-war anti-healthcare reform neocons. He testifies before Congress now and then, enjoys long walks in the rain, sunsets and holding hands (for any of you sisters out there- he is currently looking for a 3rd wife). I'd like to say more, but don't want to spend the rest of my life paying damages to His Eminence.

    Suggestion #241:
    Sooriyana
    : OK I'm running out of steam I admit. Anyway, this one is a shameless propaganda film about Bashar al-Asad and how amazing he is (!). There wasn't enough money in the state coffers to have George Clooney in the main role, so they hired some talentless schmuck from Libnaaan to play it (don't blame him, he has a wife and three OK?). So at birth he strangles two snakes sent by the Elders of Zion to kill him...does some other interesting stuff...and ends up on the throne, much loved by his people. Oh yes, and his moustache[s, technically] are the source of his power. And he travels backwards and forwards in time, something about a weirdo professor with crazy hair and a banged-up DeLorean.

    But I'll save that for another day
