💬 Plots of Nineteen-Eighties Movies if Their Protagonists Had Been People of Color

Replied to Plots of Nineteen-Eighties Movies if Their Protagonists Had Been People of Color by Carlos Greaves (The New Yorker)

Carlos Greaves humorously reimagines the plots of eighties film classics, including “Back to the Future,” “The Breakfast Club,” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” if their protagonists had been people of color.

I really enjoyed these interpretations, particularly the one for Risky Business:

After a suspicious neighbour calls the police on Joel Goodson, and his sex party gets raided, he is tried as an adult on felony charges for destruction of property, solicitation, and twenty-two counts of corrupting a minor. He does not get into Princeton.

However, my favour it Caddyshack:

People of color would not have agreed to make this film​.
