Watch The Theron #014 – The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000)
The Legend of Bagger Vance may be (yet another) #problematic example of the “magical negro” trope, but that’s far from this film’s only fault. Overlong with a clumsy story, The Legend of Bagger Vance’s biggest drawback may be not enough Charlize Theron! In this episode, we talk about the squandered use of her character, and how she goes from being a strong character with potential to an object as soon as Matt Damon gets his act together. That’s Classic Hollywood for you, and we’re getting sick of it. This episode also features many references to Shia LaBeouf and #ALLHISMOVIES, for reasons both obvious… and not!
