Nates on a Plane
I'm watching Snakes on a Plane, and I have to applaud it for actually including a heroic gay character. It's only half-way through, so they could fuck this up. But he totally just microwaved a cobra. It was awesome.
In fact, the film also includes heroic women, asians, and old people. Hell, this is kinda cool.
EDIT: Yeah, they just made a pretty horrible gay joke. Guess it's never easy for social progress in action films.
EDIT #2: WAIT. The dude wasn't gay. It was a running joke. That's pretty stupid.
