Tennessee's Dixiecrat for Congress

By the way, this is a fucking bad idea!

He decided to use our joke code for
what stupid Trump really
means when he says
"Make America Great Again"

I'm going to introduce you all to Dixiecrat Rick Tyler.  Do you know how I know this man is a Dixiecrat?  Because he cites Bible versus to justify being a racist prick and an anti-miscegenationist.



I bet y'all don't know what miscegenation is.  I didn't either until I had to look it up.  Mostly those who don't know this word are normal, sensible people who have no problems in interracial, or actually, intercultural and inter-ethnic relationships and marriages.

Because, as science said, race is actually a figment of our imagination.  There's no such thing as race in the human species.  There's more racial diversity in fruit flies than there is in human genes. 

The only reason why there's a man with very, very dark skin, and a man with very, very light skin is due to which genes are turned on or turned off. 

There's a theory that's proving more and more fact lately that we're all more or less 50th cousins of each other.  And the reason is due to the Toba Supervolcano eruption that caused a bottleneck in the human genome.  That at one time, we were once racially diverse.  We're not anymore.

It's why I keep saying that we're all BROWN.  We're just all a different shade of brown.  Hell, to prove my point, because I've been wearing my tank tops now a days and going out for walks in the sunshine again, guess what's showing up more in me?  My olive, more Middle Eastern and Native American skin tone.  I'm becoming more and more butterscotch.  I'm not the sickly, pale yellow I used to be.

Why?  Because I'm a mixed mutt.  I am as the old people think, interracial.  You don't get hair as curly as mine without some form of African ancestry in you. 

Well, this guy is against all that, so, he's against me.  And my family.  What a shock?

Unfortunately, the local news didn't read anything off of his website, so, I'll just let it speak for itself.

 I have a Dream too, Mr. Tyler. 
I dream that people like you
will eventually die off.

Behold, his thoughts on Dr. Martin Luthor King.  Prepare to be offended.

  • A major component of the subversive agenda to destroy America involves the creation of false heroes…and no greater or more profound manifestation of this phenomenon exists than the gargantuan fraud of the Martin Luther King national holiday.
  • Yes…America has been sold a massive bill of goods in the promotion of the scoundrel King as some kind of national hero!


This man just called one of our greatest leaders in Civil Rights, who was assassinated because he wants everyone to be equal, that everyone should not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the integrity of their own hearts.  This asshole just called Dr. King a fraud. 

I've always taken Dr. King's words to heart.  Which is why I don't judge people by their color or their religion, I judge people on how much of an asshole they are to me.  I don't care if you're white, if your black, if you're blue with purple stripes, if you treat me like garbage, I'm gonna treat you like garbage.  It's that simple.

I don't care what you look like at all.  I don't care if you believe in God, Vishnu, Jesus, Satan, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster, if you're an asshole to me, I will treat you like an asshole. 

Not exactly what Dr. King had in mind, but again, if you noticed what I said there.  I said, I don't care what color you are or what religion you are.  But if you treat me bad, I will do the same to you.  If you are nice to me, I will be nice to you.  That simple.

  • King was a crass con-man and charlatan. He was up to his eyeballs in association with leading avowed Marxist operatives of his day.


And this man is running for Congress in my district.  Rick Tyler.

Here's his website.

ricktylerforcongress.com/

Tell him how much you appreciate his work.

He's against the Civil Rights, he's an example of the extreme Right-Wing Evangelical Christian assholes that because they're finding their power slowly drained away by progressives who want everyone of color to be on equal footing, well, he can't stand that he's got his apple cart taken away.  Men like this see everyone else who isn't him, isn't white, isn't Christian as inferior.

Behold, this man has White-Protestant Straight Man written all over him!

White-Protestant-Straight Man by Ghostwalker2061
Once again, all of you are free to use
White Protestant Straight Man
for all your needs.

White Protestant Straight Man, he can't stand it when them darkies want to be treated equally.  Oh, hell no!

Someone told me that this guy wasn't racist.  Tell me, does this sound racist to you?

  • Only through sophisticated brainwashing and intense psychological warfare have white Americans been induced to abandon the God ordained position of oversight established by their gifted and determined ancestors. 
  • As the white race has proceeded to abandon and abdicate from the leadership and dominion status bequeathed to them by the sovereign hand of God…the American nation has devolved steadily into a state of chaos and collective dysfunctionality.

I think that's being racist.  Saying that God put the blessed White Man as the top of the pyramid?  Saying we need to go back to that?  Back to perhaps the 60s when there was lynchings?  He says the 1960s was a paradise where there were no crimes, people could keep their doors unlocked, nothing to worry about the Muslim terrorist scare.  Yeah, he hates Muslims too.  Guess that means he hates my mom.  This man doesn't like my family, that's why he's an asshole. 

But you know what else happened in the 1960s that no one had a problem with due to well the White Folks being in charge in the South?  Lynchings.  You know, hanging African Americans because they're black and they're the animal race and they need to be treated like the animals they are. 

Let's go back to the 60s when there were lynchings!

Rick Tyler is a Segregationist.

  • Of course, as time progressed, the festering problem of inherent, irreconcilable differences between the black and white races inevitably led to the chaos and turbulence of the mid-20th century, at which time an emboldened tyrannical federal power made the ultimate move toward forced integration of the races under the guise of so called civil rights.
  • Predictably, this forced transition to an utterly unnatural and untenable integration construct has led to the inevitable result of a rapidly increasing level of interbreeding between black and white…a phenomenon scientifically known as miscegenation. It is obvious and readily observable that miscegenation hastens an irreversible alteration of the racial composition of those who are its byproduct.
  • Historically, this has always been understood as an undesirable outcome…hence the long established taboo against its practice.In short, integration leads to fraternization…which in turn results in miscegenation.

  • If God’s foundational law of kind after kind is to be restored and maintained it will only be as a result of willful and determined conviction on the part of those who comprehend its vital importance. What is at stake is nothing less than the preservation of that which the sovereign God of creation has established and pronounced as good and worthy.



Yup, that's a Dixiecrat.  He's got all the bearings of one.  They're still around and they're still flying their fucking racist flag too.  YES!  The Navy Jack is racist, you idiots!  It was flown for the expressed purpose to give the Unionists the finger when the Southerners were told to free their slaves.

Oh, and apparently this guy thinks African Americans need to get on a boat and return to Africa.  Like the slaves were told to when they were freed after the Civil War if it weren't for the Radical Republican movement who were anti-slavery, and pro-reconstruction, and were called the bleeding heart liberals during the day by both conservative republicans and pro-slavory democrats.

Remember, this was BEFORE the party flip and the Southern Strategy was being used by guys like Barry Goldwater in the 1960s.

Well, Rick Tyler is basically turning the Southern Strategy on its head so much that even Republicans in my state don't want anything to do with this asshole.

"There's no room for this type of hateful display in our political discourse. Racism should be rejected in all its heinous forms in the Third Congressional District and around the country."Ryan Haynes -  Tennessee Chairman of the Republican Party

Yeah, even the Republicans hate this guy and don't want anything to do with him.  Looks like Evil has Standards.

Now, granted the only thing Rick Tyler has to say that is correct is our stupid Political Correctness world.  I hate PC.  I really do.  But the difference between me and some asshole yokel flying the Navy Jack and Rick Tyler is that Rick Tyler is running for office and no doubt wants to put his beliefs into actual law.  He wants to be a man in power.  We need to keep people like Rick Tyler out of power.  We need to look at them as the jokes they are.

They can spew their garbage all they want, that's freedom of speech, but the moment when they want to put that garbage into practice, that's when they crossed the line.  Because then they really are oppressing others.  That's why it's okay for him to spew his rhetoric, but it's not okay for him to practice his rhetoric.

I am not for segregation.

I am not for prayer in schools.

I am for integration.

I am for openness and learning about other cultures by still holding onto your own.

I am for learning other people's languages, but still holding onto your own.

I am for helping my brother or my sister regardless to their color or their religion.

This man does not speak for me or my state.  At all.  This is not Tennessee.  And we Southerners need to make people like Mr. Tyler realize that.  We don't want to go back to the 1960s. We want to grow and move forward.

And no one in the big cities in 1960s could leave their doors unlocked, just like they can't today either.  So, things aren't as pretty as you might think they were.  The whole leaving your door unlocked happened in certain areas, like rural areas or very small towns.

In my district of my state, the Third District, we have a racist asshole running for Congress.  I would like every to be introduced to Independent imcombant Rick Tyler and his "Make America White Again" campaign slogan.



Ladies and gentlemen, this man does not speak to the soul of Tennesseans AT ALL.  We are not racists, guys!  Here, let one of our REPUBLICAN PARTY CHAIRMAN say it for us.

"There's no room for this type of hateful display in our political discourse. Racism should be rejected in all its heinous forms in the Third Congressional District and around the country." Tennessee Chairman of the Republican Party Ryan Haynes.

This is so offensive even the Republicans are standing up against it.  Rick Tyler, if you love the 1960s so much, why don't you get into a TARDiS and go back in time and live there.  Because we don't need you here in the 21st Century.  Go back to the 20th Century!

Whisked Titan Eggs: the Movie

Thu Jun 23, 2016, 11:59 PM
Facebook l Tumblr l Fanfiction l Gallery l Tectonic Divergence

So, I watched the Warcraft Movie.  Basically the First War the Film told rather weirdly.

What did I think of it?  There were some places that were cool, and then there were others where...you really  have to know the genre to understand what's going on, and why when they did this movie, the fucked it all up.

Spoilers!


What's the good part?

Well, Durotan.  And Drakka.

Being the noble orc that Thrall always had invisioned him.  Only...this version is closer to Warlords of Draenor than the actual normal timeline version.  Why?  Because Durotan and Drakka both have brown skin, rather than green skin.

In the real timeline, and even in my story timeline, Durotan and Drakka both were green skin, much like most of the orcs of Draenor.  Because they had been exposed to Fel energy and magic as it poisoned Draenor.  There were so very few orcs left that were still brown skinned.  So, yeah, the first five minutes, they fucked it up.

The reason why there were still brown skinned orcs was due to Greatmother Geyah creating a quarantine location in Nagarand for those who were suffering from a plague called the Red Pox.  It's like what Small Pox does to us.  It's quite deadly.  So, there were these very sickly orcs, one of them being Garrosh Hellscream, Grom Hellscream's son, who suffered from the red pox.  They couldn't participate in the war, so they weren't as exposed to the Fel Energy as others were.  And so, their skin never turned green.

The reason why Durotan's skin turned green was because he was exposed to the Fel Energy.  It was never really said he drank the blood of Mannoroth, but he was exposed to it, and so was his mate Drakka.  Since they both were warriors who fought for the Horde. They would be exposed to it over time and their skin turned green.

In this movie, there's a mixture between green skinned orcs and brown skinned orcs in the Horde.  When in reality, everyone who was fighting in the Horde should all be green skinned, either due to drinking Mannoroth's blood or being exposed to Fel Energy over the course of their battles with the Draenei.

So, yeah, they got the greened skinned thing wrong.  Hell, Orgrim Doomhammer is supposed to be green skinned too.  Is he?  NOPE!  He is wielding his Doomhammer though.  When Durotan said "Ogrim" I was like: "Oh, there's Ogrim Doomhammer! Cool."

I will remind you that they at least colored one orc right, that being Grom Hellscream.  Except Grom doesn't say a single word in this whole fucking movie!  I would think the father of the main Lex Luthor to my Superman villain in my stories would have a few lines here and there.  I recognized him with his topknot and rockstar hair.  He showed up as a cameo four times in the whole movie, said not a single damned word.

The Black's Rage by Ghostwalker2061



I think he roared at least once.

Let's pick out what else they got wrong.

Ah, Medivh.

And Khadgar.

And Anduin Lothar.

And Garrona Halforcen.

And King Llane's death.  Yeah, he dies in this thing.  I did say spoilers.

And Lothar's battle with Blackhand.  Which never happened at all in any of the source material.

And Blackhand himself.

And the Dark Portal's construction.

Basically, this movie is pretty much faithful to what Blizzard has done to Warcraft.  Major retcons and changes that make no sense, not even to a story aspect.  Behold, everything I have ever complained about Warcraft and lately the Warcraft Chronicles and it's in this movie. 

Oh god, there's so much to bitch about.  I mean they just got it all wrong! 

I'll start with the last little bit on the list.  The Dark Portal.  Or rather, half of it.

Okay, very quick, in the original timeline, and also in my stories, the Dark Portal was a joint project between a Sargeras-possessed Medivh and the Twilight Hammers, namely their leader, the warlock Gul'dan.  Medivh wanted to bring the orcs through to Azeroth to have them conquer it in the name of the Burning Legion.  And Gul'dan along with the Twilight Hammer, built the portal in the Hellfire Peninsula, and Medivh built the portal in the Black Morass, which becomes the Blasted Lands after the swamp gets ruined.

In this movie, Gul'dan completed one part of the portal, in Hellfire.  But the other half isn't finished.  Gul'dan uses captured Draenei to drain them of their life force and ignites the portal, which opens up to a pool in the Black Morass.  And that's how a small garrison of the Horde of Draenor comes through.  With Gul'dan only and Blackhand, and Durotan, and Drakka, and a few others.  And yeah.  They plan on building the portal on the other side.

When in reality, Medivh built the other side of the portal himself.

Also, the Black Portal can't be open to Stormwind.  Apparently, the movie says it could in order to have a Deus ex Machina to save a bunch of humans who were captured by the Horde to power it with their life force.

No.  The Black Portal is designed as a doorway through the Twisting Nether between Draenor and Azeroth.  It can't be opened to Stormwind no more than a regular door can suddenly open up to a different part of the house it isn't connected to.  It only goes to the places it's designed to go to.  That's why there's two doors, one on the side of Azeroth, built by Medivh, and the other on the side of Draenor built by Gul'dan.  Azeroth's side goes to Draenor, or alternate Draenor, and their side goes to Azeroth.  That's how the damned thing works.

Even in Warlords of Draenor, Garrosh Hellscream had to build a portal on Draenor's side just to open it and send his Iron Horde through to Azeroth.  These guys don't know how portals works.

So, that's fuck up number two and a half.

Uh...they replaced the Blood of Mannoroth with just Fel Energy itself, and Gul'dan uses that to empower Blackhand.  When in the actual canon, Blackhand and many other Orcs drank the Blood of Mannoroth in order to feel the power of the demon's might in them as a part of the Blood Pact they had with the demons.

And Blackhand had already drank the blood before the First War happened.  Many of the orcs from Draenor drank the blood when they rose up against the Draenei and slaughtered them in mass.

Not because Gul'dan needed their life force to feed the Portal, but because they were tricked into going to war with the Draenei (whom they traded with here and there), under the orders of Kil'Jaeden, who wanted to kill the traitors to the Man'ari Eradar...you know, the Draenei who followed Prophet Velen and didn't want to become servants of the Burning Legion.

So, third thing they fucked up in the movie.

They fucked up Khadgar.

Okay, Khadgar in the original lore, was a spy for the Kirin Tor, and they told him to become apprentice to Medivh as a way for him to spy on Medivh for the Kirin Tor.  He was not a Dalaran drop out.

Also, they didn't make him fall under Medivh's aging spell that made him get older when Khadgar and Anduin Lothar went against Medivh after they found out he was possessed by Sargeras.

So, that's five things now they fucked up?

Let's just get to Medivh.

Medivh isn't the host for Sargeras in this movie.  He's just addicted to Fel Energy.  And it twisted him, and that's it.  And he wanted to save everyone by using Fel Energy and bringing Gul'dan and the Horde here?

What?  How does that save people?!  Even Medivh's motives is stupid in this thing.  In the original lore, Medivh was possessed by Sargeras, and when he awoke from his coma, he began his little plan to bring the Horde over and fuck over Azeroth.  That's why he brought the Horde over and built the Dark Portal.  Because he wanted to fuck over Azeroth.  Because Sargeras wanted to make Azeroth ready to bring on the Burning Legion.

Apparently not in this movie!

Medivh's death is just as bad.  He builds a clay golem which looks like an Inferno when he brings it to life with Fel Energy.  And how Khadgar and Anduin kill him is simple, they lead him to the pool of arcane energy and then drop the golem onto him.  No Medivh casting his spell to age Khadgar, and no chopping Medivh's head off.  And as Medivh lay dying, he casts his spell to open the Dark Portal to Stormwind...and I already bitched about how stupid that was.

And Khadgar drains Medivh of his Fel Magic and then turns Fel into the power of the Holy Light?  And...what?  Okay, they fucked up how the Holy Light works.

Neltharion knows how the Holy Light works better than these guys in this movie!

Fuck up number six and a half.

So, that brings me to the topic of Fel Energy and how it's handled.  Or rather, someone forgot to tell these guys that Fel Energy isn't the only corruptive substance in Warcraft lore.  You know what else corrupts people?  Arcane Energy!

Both Arcane Energy and Fel Energy are treated like narcotics, drugs in Warcraft.  They change people, they do things to people, horrible things to people when abused.  However both Fel Energy an Arcane Energy have been wielded by those who are evil and those who are good, and those who are gray.

Warlocks who  summon demons to defend their city and innocents from being taken by the enemy is an example of good people using Fel Energy.

Garrosh Hellscream building the Mana Nuclear Bomb out of the Focusing Iris and detonating it to destroy Theramore Isle as well as half of Neltharion's Dragonflight is an example of someone using Arcane Energy for evil.

Both sources of magic can be harnessed for good and for evil.  Fel and Arcane are neither good nor evil themselves.  So, this movie decides to really skip over that nastiness about gray areas and say good people use arcane energies, bad people use fel energy.  That simple.

When in Warcraft, it isn't that simple. Both energies can be wielded by light and dark, and both energies can corrupt when said people abuse it too much.

But in this movie, only Fel Energy corrupts the user.  *facepalm*

That was number 7 of the fuck ups.

Garrona Halforcen and her apparent crush on Anduin Lothar?  Again, what?!

Okay, so in this movie, for some strange reason, Garrona Halforcen is half orc and half human.  When in the actual lore, she's half orc an half Draenei.  Did anybody on the writing staff read a warcraft wiki? 

And she has a crush on Anduin Lothar, when in the lore, she was in love with Medivh.  That's where Med'an came in.  Med'an is half human, and part orc and part draenei.  And he's a Gary Stu.  But see my other journals on that.

Why is Garrona in love with Lothar?

Also, let's get to what Garrona does in the movie compared to what she does in the lore, which is the assassination of King Llane Wrynn.  Yes, in the lore, Garrona joins the Alliance as a confidant, but the reason why she does this is because she is under the control of Cho'Gal of the Twilight Hammers.  She gets Llane to trust her and then, under the orders of Cho'Gal's magic, she grabs her daggers and stabs Llane in front of his kid Varian Wrynn.  This feeds into Varian's hatred for the orcs which turns him into the racist bastard he becomes later on.

In this movie?  Garrona is told to kill Llane by Llane himself.  Why?  So she could create peace?  Llane tells her to kill him because Blackhand was coming to kill Llane himself.  So, he had this idea that if Garrona stole Blackhand's kill, she could be admitted back into the Horde and try to persuade them to make peace?  Well, I mean, it did have a point when Blackhand challenges Anduin Lothar to Mak'gora, aka the duel of honor.

Which never happened in the fucking lore.  Blackhand was killed by Ogrim Doomhammer, not Anduin Lothar.  That's how Doomhammer became the new Warchief after Blackhand.

Also, Doomhammer wasn't a part of the Frostwolf Clan, he was a part of the Thunderlord Clan.  And he was one of the last remaining shamans among the Orcs.  It's why Thrall learned how to shoot lightning from Doomhammer's hammer.  Because that's what Doomhammer did too.

8 and 9 fuck ups.

Apparently Adoli, the first Guardian is in this thing.  Except instead of being a male High Elf, Adoli in this movie is a female human played by Glen Close.  And she leads Khadgar on a journey to find her and tells him how to defeat Medivh. 

So, that's all the fuck ups I've found so far.   I'm sure there's more.

But those are the major ones.

Look, I realize that trying to condense down a lore that took a few books, a game, and a few comics to tell into a two hour movie, there will be some things changed and cut.  But here's the issue, what you changed is what makes this movie not a good representation of the story itself.  There were more players in the war than Gul'dan, Durotan, Llane, Anduin Lothar, and Ogrim Doomhammer. 

Also, where is Ogrim Doomhammer's armor? 

They had Blackhand kill Anduin Lothar's son Calen Lothar so they could create this hatred between Anduin and Blackhand, which would make the Mak'gora more meaningful to the story of Anduin getting revenge for Blackhand skewering his son?  Because Anduin cut Blackhand's arm off?

Blech.

One thing I have to say is this movie is pretty.  And it did something interesting with Durotan by having him seeing the Fel Energy Gul'dan was using as poison and coming to Llane to warn him of what will happen.  Durotan wanted to come to Azeroth because the Fel magic was killing his own world.  Which is very true.  That happened in the lore.  It's why the orcs came to Azeroth, and also to sate their Blood Rage caused by the demon blood.  They needed something to fight since their enemy was dead on their world.

Durotan, being the sensible one as we've noted in Warlords of Draenor, he makes a pact with Llane, saying he promises to prevent his own clan from taking humans to use them for fuel for the portal, and do his best to protect Alliance soldiers, in return, Llane will draw out the Horde, keep them busy long enough for Durotan to kill him.

Too bad it didn't work, and Durotan was challenged by Gul'dan to the duel of honor in which Gul'dan looked like he was kicking ass but then started to cheat with Fel magic to draw Durtan's life force out and killed him.  Which pissed off the other orcs because Mak'gora is supposed to be a fight of strength rather than a fight of super powers and one bad assed normal.  You're not supposed to use weapons of any type or any sort of magic to aid you in the fight, just your fists.

Gul'dan was a cheating bastard, and the orcs got a bit pissed off.  BUT then he showed them how he can control them by frying them with Fel Fire, so they have no choice but to do what he says.  Which is again wrong, Gul'dan wasn't the leader, nor was he very visible, holding strict control over the Horde, that was Blackhand.  Gul'dan was a master manipulator, using his wits an his cunning to make Blackhand do what he said.

He also wasn't the type to get into a fist fight with Durotan.

But at least the only character I felt was true to the lore was Durotan.  So, I'm guessing this movie had some Chris Metzen fingers in it.  And knowing how Chris Metzen has no problem in fucking up the lore just to make Thrall look like Green Jesus...the changes in this movie now make a hell of a lot of sense, don't it?

Do I recommend this movie?  Yeah, go see it at least once in the theaters.  I saw it on 5 dollar Tuesday.  It's pretty on the screen.  Do I suggest seeing it again?  Probably not until it comes out on Blu-Ray or DVD. 

So, there you go.

And yes, given there's three Wars in Warcraft, there's gonna be two more movies in this.  The next is the Second War.  And guess who played a part in the Second War?

Deathwing the Worldbreaker by Ghostwalker2061

I can't imagine the amount of ass raping that will happen to Neltharion/Deathwing that hasn't already happened in the lore and the retcons.

This is gonna hurt!

For some of you who missed the ending of the last journal, here it is!

I go into the box office numbers of Pete's Dragon 1977 and one other movie released the same year.

Why do we need a remake of a movie that in 1977 grossed $36,000,000.  From a 10 million dollar budget.  So, yeah, Disney made bank during its first year of releases into theaters.  But you know what I can't find, the opening weekend for Pete's Dragon in 1977.  Because this movie was so unpopular that no one even bothered to keep up with that information.

You know what movie out did Pete's Dragon in that same year?



Are we even that shocked?!

Guess which movie beat out Pete's Dragon in 1977?  Fucking Star Wars! Before it was called Star Wars: A New Hope.  And yes, I did link all of you to a 7 minute long opening in HD of Star Wars.  Because I love you guys that much.

With a US Box Office return of $460,998,007!  YEAH!  Oh, and Star Wars' production budget was $11 million dollars.  Only one million more than Pete's Dragon AND yeah, it beat Pete's Dragon out.

By 424 million dollars.  Yeah. 

Also, compared to Star Wars, which at the time had relatively unknown actors in lead rolls, Pete's Dragon had an all star line up.  Shelly Winters, Mickey Rooney, Helen Reddy.  Jim Backus and Jim Dale?.  People during the 1960s and 70s knew who these people were.

Jim Backus is best known as Thurston Howard III from Gilligan's Island.  Mickey Rooney?  Well, if you haven't seen a movie he starred in, you guys shouldn't call yourselves movie buffs.  But I'll throw you a freebie.

The Love Boat.

Shelly Winters was in the Poseidon Adventure. 

And guess who does the audio books Harry Potter?  Jim Dale.  Aka Dr. Terminus.  Anyone who's ever played a Harry Potter game, yeah, that's Jim Dale.

Helen Reddy is a very famous Australian singer who sang every girl's favorite song.  I am Woman.  As in, I am Woman, Here me Roar.



Who doesn't know this song?  Guess who sang it?  Nora from Pete's Dragon.  Even if you don't know who sang it, you know the song.

But even with this all star cast, it didn't do as well as Star Wars that same year.

It wasn't a box office flop,  Not by any measure.  A 10 million budget, and it made back 28 million during its first US run in 1977.  That's not a flop.  A Box Office Flop is considered as a movie that doesn't make back its budget during its run. 

Example, The Adventures of Pluto Nash starring Eddie Murphy.  It had a production budget of a 100 million bucks.  But during its box office run, it only made back 7 million.  That's a box office bomb, or a box office flop.  Pluto Nash didn't make back it's 100 million budget.

Pete's Dragon did make over twice its 10 million budget with a box office of 38 million.

But Star Wars became known as the first Blockbuster because at the budget of only 11 million dollars, it made back during its box office run over 460 million!  That's 41 times the budget it took to make Star Wars.  That's why it was a blockbuster.

Pete's Dragon didn't bomb, but it was no blockbuster. 

So, are they expecting that Pete's Dragon 2016 be a blockbuster?  Because it isn't.  It might make back a little over its current budget, which roughly 100 million.  But it's not gonna break the box office, not like Star Wars: Force Awakens, or Jurassic World.
 

Why is this movie being remade again when the very genre that beat it out in its debut year had put out another movie, this time by the very same company that made Pete's Dragon, and Star Wars: Force Awakens actually is continuing the story of the characters we love as well as adding new characters, is being directed by JJ Abrams of all people, whereas Pete's Dragon is rehashing Jungle Book with a dragon and a Green Message with an unrealistic Feral Child that is actually MORE unrealistic than the fucking furry dragon.  And it's still doesn't look like the 80s!  Where the fuck is Elliott's mullet?!

You know what looked more like the 80s than the remake of Pete's Dragon?  Star Wars, Return of the Jedi.

By the way, those kids aren't playing with Star Wars action figures from Kenner in the trailer of Pete's Dragon too.  Come on, money, marketing whore  that you are, Disney, where's the fucking Star Wars action figures from Kenner in that trailer?  Hmm?  You own the rights to Star Wars, you should be allowed to show us Star Wars in Pete's Dragon!

If R2D2 doesn't show up and beeps at Pete or Elliott, you've lost me as a fan.

So, yeah, guess what movie isn't going to do as well as maybe The Jungle Book, or even Star Wars: The Force Awakens?  Yeah, it'll be Pete's Dragon

Go back to Jurassic World, Bryce D Howard, you were much better off.  Due to it being the highest grossing fucking movie of 2015!  My, how the mighty have fallen.


Remake!Pete is not Relatable

Tue Jun 21, 2016, 11:04 PM
Facebook l Tumblr l Fanfiction l Gallery l Tectonic Divergence

Let's talk about this kid for a moment.

 photo Screen Shot 2016-06-17 at 10.58.17 PM_zps45ov5k2f.png

Remake!Pete is a perfect little feral child whose parents got killed in a car accident, and he's been on his own living with a animal intelligence dragon for 6 years, and some how he's able to speak perfect English like a 10 year old, AND have the social skills of just a very shy kid at school.

Oh, and somehow he's able to be acrobatic and can leap from cars to buses and shit like he does in the movie.

Behold, we have a Gary Stu!

One thing, doing another movie about a feral child after the OTHER movie that's about a feral child, and in that movie, it's based off a book about a feral child and the whole kid being able to speak perfectly and then rejoined human society made more sense because...that was in The Jungle Book

Yeah, the first problem I have with the whole feral child thing is Disney is copying off of itself from another one of its movie in the same damned year!

And if you look at the two trailers back to back, well, you'll see where I'm getting at.





Kid running through the forest and jumping off a cliff.  It happens in BOTH TRAILERS!

Behold!  Disney running out of original ideas, so it decides to do the same idea twice, only replace Bageera, Baloo, and Shere Khan with Elliott!  And no Christopher Walken!  If Elliott would have been voiced by Christopher Walken, I would have given this movie a pass.

No, he's voiced by Andy Serkis doing King Kong noises.

If this dragon were to be voiced by Andy Serkis' Gollum, I would have again, given it a pass.

But I've ranted about Elliott enough, let's talk about the kid.  Notice something, the kid speaks perfect English!  For a feral child who had been living in the woods for 6 years.  It's revealed that Pete is supposed to be 10 in this 1980s period piece remake of a late Victorian, pre-WWI North America movie that came out in 1977.

Seriously, you couldn't wait for the actual 40th anniversary of this movie and released it in 2017 instead?  You had to release it one year before the 40th anniversary?  FAIL!

Yeah, Pete is a kid who is the sole survivor of a car accident that killed his parents (rather than being an orphan escaping abusive foster parents), and that car accident happened when Pete was 4 years old.  He was a pre-schooler when he lost his parents and was adopted by the big furry, green, Falkor coughed up hairball who everyone calls a dragon, Elliott.

You know, the other character that needs to be sporting a mullet in this mulletless 1980s period piece.  Where none of the kids have Captain Eo watches, despite Captain Eo being a Disney property and was done in the 80s, neither of them watching Ducktales, or Oliver, or the Black Cauldron.  But I guess Deception of a Generation still has a ban on the Black Cauldron for how devil-like the Horned King looked.

And to make this 80s period piece even more unbelievable, we have a feral child that has been living in the woods since he was 4 years old with an animal who can't talk and SOMEHOW, this feral kid is able to speak perfect English, and have prefect social skills when talking to the other humans in this movie.

And the movie is stated to be more realistic and darer than the original campy 1977 movie...you know, the one that had a song about skinning, roasting, and eating the main character Pete.

Before I get into the whole why this kid is unrelatable, let's look at actual stories of actual feral children.  REAL feral children.

First off, for those of you who don't know, a Feral Child is a child who more or less grows up without parental guidance at all, or any contact with another human being.  How a child becomes Feral is simple.  You take a young kid still in its development stages, like say at the age of 3 or 4, abandon said kid out in the forest for a good portion of its life, chances are, that kid will lose everything that it was taught up until the moment it was abandoned.  The child ceases to being what we consider as "human" and becomes more like an animal.

Because humans are very social creatures that being social is so hardwired into our minds, being deprived of social contact fucks our heads up to the point where we regress to more primitive stages.  It's why social disorders like autism are called disorders.  Because humans, to develop normally, as in this is the age they learn how to walk, this is the age where they learn object permanence, this is the age that they start communicating with more complex methods beyond making noises, this is the age where the child learns how not to be selfish, this is the age where the child begins to understand morality, right and wrong.  In order for humans to develop normally and learn social skills, and make those connections, they have to be around other humans and be sociable with other humans.

Because again, humans are social creatures.  We need the contact of other humans, even if we don't like people.  We need to learn how to be around people.  It is a part of our development as people, development of the self and the other. 

Being social is important for child development.  So, when a normal child who has no disorders at all, is deprived of those integral moments in their development, a feral child is what you get.

And guess what, the damages done to that child are next to impossible to reverse, depending on how long the child was deprived of human contact, that repair may take years, or NEVER.

And the cases of these feral children, a lot of them are tragic and they stem from abuse in the home.

So, here we go, cases of real Feral Children.

Oxana Malaya, Ukraine, 1991


  • Oxana was found living with dogs in a kennel in 1991. She was eight years old and had lived with the dogs for six years. Her parents were alcoholics and one night, they had left her outside. Looking for warmth, the three year old crawled into the farm kennel and curled up with the mongrel dogs, an act that probably saved her life. When discovered she behaved more like a dog than a human child. She ran on all fours, panted with her tongue out, bared her teeth and barked. Because of her lack of human interaction, she only knew the words “yes” and “no.”
  • Intensive therapy aided Oxana to learn basic social and verbal skills, but only with the ability of a five year old. Now 30 years old, she lives in a clinic in Odessa and works with the hospital’s farm animals under the supervision of her carers.


Prava (The Bird Boy), Russia, 2008


  • Prava, a seven-year-old boy, was found in a tiny, two-bedroom apartment, living with his 31-year old mother – but he was confined in a room filled with bird cages, containing dozens of his mother’s pet birds, bird feed and droppings. She treated her son as another pet. He was never physically harmed, she neither beat him nor left him without food, but she never spoke to him. His only communication was with the birds. He could not speak, but chirped.
  • When he wasn’t understood he would wave his arms and hands bird-like.
    Released into child care by his mother, Prava was moved to a centre for psychological care where doctors are trying to rehabilitate him.



Sujit Kumar Chicken Boy, Fiji, 1978


  • Sujit exhibited dysfunctional behavior as a child. His parents locked him in a chicken coop. His mother committed suicide and his father was murdered. His grandfather took responsibility for him but still kept him confined in the chicken coop. He was eight years old when he was found in the middle of a road, clucking and flapping. He pecked at his food, crouched on a chair as if roosting, and would make rapid clicking noises with his tongue. His fingers were turned inward. He was taken to an old people’s home by care workers, but there, because he was so aggressive, he was tied with bed sheets to his bed for over 20 years. Now he is over 30 years old and is cared for by Elizabeth Clayton, who rescued him from the home.


Genie, USA, 1970



  • When she was a toddler Genie’s father decided she was “retarded” and restrained her in a child’s toilet seat in a small room of the house. She lived in solitary confinement for more than 10 years. She even slept in the chair. She was 13 years old in 1970 when she and her mother turned up at child services and a social worker noticed her condition. She was still not toilet trained and moved with a strange sideways “bunny-walk.”
  • She couldn’t speak or make any sound and constantly spat and clawed herself. For years she became a research object. She gradually learned to speak a few words but couldn’t arrange them grammatically.
  • She also began to read simple texts, and developed a limited form of social behavior. At one stage, she briefly lived again with her mother, but was then for several years passed through various foster homes experiencing abuse and harassment. She returned to a children’s hospital where it was found that she had regressed back to silence. 
  • Funding for Genie’s treatment and research was stopped in 1974 and it wasn’t known what happened to her, until a private investigator located her in a private facility for mentally underdeveloped adults.


Some other stories.

Feral Children Raised by Animals

And here's this story.



So, yeah, there are real accounts of feral children.  Some were capable of being rehabilitated, some weren't.  Some of them, even after they rejoin society, still can't quite relate.

There was a case of another feral child from Cambodia who was rescued from the wild, but immediately returned to it after only a couple of years and was never heard from again.

And yeah, a lot of these cases stem from parental abuse and neglect.  So, the feral child story is a tragic one.  BUT you noticed a theme for many of these children, when they were found, many of them didn't know how to speak.  They would make animal sounds, the sounds of the animals they interacted with.

Meaning, a 4 year old boy left in the woods after a traumatic crash, gets found by a giant, furry dragon who cannot speak AT ALL, and then somehow, 6 years later, this same boy is able to speak perfect English and only show moderate shyness towards other humans, and maybe that one scene where Pete seemed confused by cars driving down a street.  But that's it.

SIX YEARS.

The last sad case was Genie who was strapped to a toilet for 10 years, still couldn't speak even after she was rescued, only managed a few words here and there, and was later put in a home for mentally disabled. 

So, yeah, GARY FUCKING STU PETE!

And what seals the title of Gary Stu is Pete also has a dragon who protects him.

Yeah, this kid is going to be unrelatable big time. 

This is a movie that claims to be realistic.  Meaning Pete, being raised by a non-sentient dragon, should be acting more like said dragon, making growling noises rather than perfect 10-year old kid English, walking on all fours because that's what his dragon parental figure would be doing, and since only leaving with this very solitary creature, Pete would have developed no social skills in how to interact with other humans.  In fact, being so long being away from humans, it would probably make Pete think he was a dragon rather than a human, and to view humans as dangerous.

He wouldn't be so openly welcoming to Bryce's "Nora" character, or her daughter. 

So forgive me if I have to call bullshit on this "realistic" take on the 1977 story.

Honestly, they should have kept the whole abusive parents aspect in there.  For one thing, it WOULD have made Pete more relatable rather than 10 year old kid who had been in the woods living with a dragon for 6 years, but still able to speak and even be sociable with other humans.

There wouldn't need to be a hand wave on the kid at all, if they had kept the abusive parents story.  AND they would have had an already made villain for the purpose of the movie, Pete's abusive parents wanting Pete back.

This would have made Pete more relatable, because there are cases of abusive parents.  You could even just have it as abusive foster parents, much like the original.  Keep the parents innocent, keep in the whole they died in some car wreck and Pete had to go live in foster care.  And yes, abuse in foster care also happens to kids.  Again, it would be more realistic than what we're getting.

This isn't The Jungle Book, Disney.  This is Pete's Dragon.

Have some fucking balls, Disney!

But no, we have a Gary Stu Feral Child who knows perfect English and can interact with other humans with little to no problems.

I was abused by my own father from the age of 3 to the age of 7 and even I STILL have problems with interacting with other people.  And I had therapy.  There are some things that cannot be realistically corrected, even with treatment.  And feral children are an extreme case of this.

This is why this character is a Gary Stu.  He's not relatable to me, who missed out on important things that I needed to learn to be "normal" and still not quite normal, or to actual feral children survivors who would cry bullshit the story, and he would not be relatable to today's children at all either.

And again, it's Disney rehashing something they already with The Jungle Book.  Again, in the same damned year!

Why not go with the abusive parents angle?  What, is that too dark for kids?  Kids shouldn't be exposed to the aspect that some parents aren't really good parents at all?  Yeah, today's society is really coddling the kids a bit too much that the very idea that maybe one of their friends would come from a broken home and maybe a movie about a fuzzy dragon might bring that to light.

God forbid this "more realistic movie than the one with the cannibalism, child enslavement, and beatings angle" would try to paint a darker world than that one.  But instead, they trade in the already established villains for a fucking Green Aesop!  And a Space Whale one for that.

How is this a Space Whale Green Aesop?  Easy, we must not cut down protected, National Park forests or else a fucking, furry dragon will attack us.

This movie is going to be HORRIBLE!  And for that matter, again, why do we need a remake of the 1977 movie?  To make money?  Exactly how?  Why is the Jungle Book, which had two remakes, by the way...the first live action remake was done in 1994, and was filmed in Tennessee!  With real animals and Mowgli.  And the animals didn't talk in that one.  You know, that was more realistic than the remake of Pete's Dragon, which the original was already a live action movie in the first place.  Just take out the CGI dragon for the Don Bluth animated dragon, and there you go.

But why do we need a remake of a movie that in 1977 grossed $36,000,000.  From a 10 million budget.  So, yeah, Disney made bank during its first year of releases into theaters.  But you know what I can't find, the opening weekend for Pete's Dragon in 1977.  Because this movie was so unpopular that no one even bothered to keep up with that information.

You know what movie out did Pete's Dragon in that same year?



Are we even that shocked?!

Guess which movie beat out Pete's Dragon in 1977?  Fucking Star Wars! Before it was called Star Wars: A New Hope.  And yes, I did link all of you to a 7 minute long opening in HD of Star Wars.  Because I love you guys that much.

With a US Box Office return of $460,998,007!  YEAH!  Oh, and Star Wars' production budget was $11 million.  Only one million more than Pete's Dragon AND yeah, it beat Pete's Dragon out.

By 424 million dollars.  Yeah. 

Why is this movie being remade again when the very genre that beat it out in its debute year had put out another movie, this time by the very same company that made Pete's Dragon, and Star Wars: Force Awakens actually is continuing the story of the characters we love as well as adding new characters, is being directed by JJ Abrams of all people, whereas Pete's Dragon is rehashing Jungle Book with a dragon and a Green Message with an unrealistic Feral Child that is actually MORE unrealistic than the fucking furry dragon.  And it's still doesn't look like the 80s!

You know what looked more like the 80s than the remake of Pete's Dragon?  Star Wars, Return of the Jedi.

By the way, those kids aren't playing with Star Wars action figures from Kenner in the trailer of Pete's Dragon too.  Come on, money, marketing whore  that you are, Disney, where's the fucking Star Wars action figures from Kenner in that trailer?  Hmm?  You own the rights to Star Wars, you should be allowed to show us Star Wars in Pete's Dragon!

So, yeah, guess what movie isn't going to do as well as maybe The Jungle Book, or even Star Wars: The Force Awakens?  Yeah, it'll be Pete's Dragon

Go back to Jurassic World, Bryce D Howard, you were much better off.  Due to it being the highest grossing fucking movie of 2015!  My, how the mighty have fallen.
