There are some television series that should never be turned into a movie; one of these is the "Green Hornet". On Friday, the premiere of the "Green Hornet" movie in theaters, SyFy showed all the old "Green Hornet" episodes. In a move which will date me, as a teen I watched some of these episodes; they were trash then and, older and wiser, they are still trash to me. The only redeeming feature was watching Bruce Lee, as Kato, demolish the bad guys (everyone remembers Bruce Lee, right?). It played into the stereotyping of Asian-Americans as dupes willing to let others take the credit for their inventions and ideas; that all they're good at is as servants, which does many of the hardworking, intelligent Asian-Americans I've worked with over the years a grave disservice, to say the least. With this being such an ethically diverse society I thought that we, as Americans all, had gone past stereotyping; that the idea of a Black genius such as Dr. Daystrom from Star Trek: The Old Series (who I admired despite the mental breakdown he suffered in the series, by the way) wasn't so far-fetched. That people are willing to make movies and buy tickets to movies that reinforce, if not encourage, the old stereotypes is distressing since, when we limit other people, we limit ourselves as human beings, our ability to dream, to aspire to bigger and better things. To conclude I believe that there are movies that should be left alone: see "The Day The Earth Stood Still" remake and tell me it's as good as the 1950s original; then there's the "Green Hornet", a series that deserved to die and be buried in its era, never to be resurrected again.
