Proof that Hollywood hates me

Q. Why Great Wall you guys?

A. Because why not take everything I would love in a modern movie — action, monsters, an attractive Asian cast — and toss a steaming pile of Matt Damon right on in there?

I am sorry, you guys, but I just don't get his appeal AT ALL.

    I don’t have any particular dislike for Matt Damon, and in fact I’ve quite liked him in certain roles. But I do agree he seems terribly miscast for this role, even for a “white man savior” role. That said, I still think this movie looks pretty decent. Plus, from what I’ve read, it’s not really a “white man savior” situation, either, and more of a “white moron stumbles upon super-human Chinese battling alien monsters” situation.

        That’s what I’m sayin’, man!
