Russian interference should have been fighting an uphill battle, but as far as I'm concerned we gave them a head start.

@  Shrug : (20 October 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I disagree with Hillary being a good choice to run against Trump. Plenty of mixed feelings about her long before 2016 within our own party. When the DNC has to rig it's own primaries to get their chosen candidate running, maybe you shouldn't expect an easy landslide at the actual election.

@  Pennpenn : (20 October 2018 - 05:20 AM)

It would have also helped if the US was also an actualy democracy where the candidate who gets the most votes wins, but hey.

@  Rycochet : (20 October 2018 - 04:42 AM)

You helped destroy western democracy, but hey, at least no-one can accuse you of bias... Oh wait, they did, still do, and are going to keep doing so as long as you report facts.

@  Rycochet : (20 October 2018 - 04:39 AM)

Hillary was a good choice to run against Trump, the big problem was the media crawling all over themselves to try and push the idea of fairness, and threw her under the bus to do so. Any hint of impropriety was treated as being exactly the same as actual proven criminal acts by Trump in order to avoid being seen as biased... and at the end of it all, he turned around and bit them for doing so because that's who he is.

Many right-wingers are using its name as part of our version of the term "libtards": "Left-green filthy".

It's the only of the "established" parties (it's almost 40 years old at this point) that has remained true to its principles.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:34 AM)

Meanwhile, some uplifting news from Germany: While our big parties are rapidly losing voters, and our new "we're not really extreme" right-wing party is gaining voters, there is one other party that is scoring massive points, both in polls and the recent Bavarian state election: The Green Party.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:33 AM)

I still think having Hillary run against Drumpf was a bad choice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 October 2018 - 03:32 AM)

Well on the bright side, we know more people voted for HIllary than the cheeto.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:31 AM)

I guess many a prepper might have also voted for the person most likely to bring about the end of society they are waiting for.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:28 AM)

Now let that sink in, and then think about how many people voted for Agent Orange.

Man, watching the original Voltron cartoon for the first time is so weird after having only seen the Netflix reboot.

@  D.M : (19 October 2018 - 09:09 AM)

+They don't really give a crap about God. All their religious talk is just part of the mask. They wanna look like the ideal citizen (what they consider that to be) - the most Christian of all Christians, the most patriotic of all patriots, etc.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 08:13 AM)

That's because she was also greedy, heartless, and despised the poor, which is something the right often loves more than God.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 October 2018 - 07:55 AM)

I find it rather amusing that the party of the Religious Right sees wisdom in a woman who hated the notion of God almost as much as she hated and feared the idea of being part of a family.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:39 AM)

However, another big issue is cultural differences. We do have a sense of humor, it's just different than in other cultures because it is a product of a different culture. Simply put, what you might find incredibly funny is considered unfunny by Germans... and vice versa.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:38 AM)

It's actually a multi-faceted issue. Yes, some Germans are incredibly devoid of humor, although those people exist in other countries too. I have no ideas regarding statistics, but these people exist.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:37 AM)

So, about this long-standing stereotype that "Germans have no sense of humor"...

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2018 - 03:49 AM)

I got enough Rand fighting my way through the Sword of Truth series. I can't imagine trying to read the original work.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 02:39 AM)

All the people who like Rand should go live in a big underwater city. I cannot foresee anything that could go wrong with such a scenario.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2018 - 09:07 PM)

That's one of the things the old cable companies got right: Only one or two options per area. The illusion of choice.

I mean, white people are calling the cops on black people for random shit lately, it appears.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2018 - 02:49 AM)

It's not that surprising that some people freaked out enough over Youtube being down that they'd call emergency services. I mean, I've heard of at least one instance of someone calling 911 because the restaurant didn't make a cheeseburger to their liking.

So yeah, "Winnie The Pooh" is the next big Disney property to join the live-action remakes club.

 

Jim Cummings is still Pooh, Alan Tudyk is the new Tigger & Brad Garret the new Eeyore. Ewan MacGregor has the title role.

 

As for the plot, well...

 

Similar to Peter Pan in 1991's Hook, Christopher has lost his sense of imagination due to the responsibilities of adulthood, with his boss pushing him to prioritize work over family. After Christopher's wife, Evelyn, and their daughter, Madeline, move away, that's when Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and the other 100 Acre Wood citizens find their way back into his life.

 

https://amp.cinemabl...eeyore-and-more

 

way to go Disney. I'm sure the world today really needed more dark depressing Pooh...

This feels inappropriate considering how the real Christopher Robin got fed up with how Pooh affected his life.

As much as I love Disney for the current generation of Marvel and Star Wars flicks, some of the other stuff that gets green-lit seem like really odd choices.  This, a live-action Pete's Dragon, a second live-action Alice in Wonderland.  But for some reason we can't get a sequel to TRON: Legacy?

Tron Legacy is just another sequel to a live action movie (and not a particularly great one either).  They're trying to bank on their animated properties here and the nostalgia that comes with them, like Beauty & The Beast.

80s nostalgia still mostly reigns supreme compared to other decades (though the early 90s is starting to creep in there), and I'd estimate there's more nostalgia for TRON than Pete's Dragon or Alice in Wonderland.  Legacy didn't perform as well as the first live-action Alice, but I'd be willing to bet a sequel wouldn't have bombed the way Alice through the Looking Glass did.  Rather than just being another tired vehicle for a weird Johnny Depp role (which Disney banks on far too often), Legacy actually had a decent chunk of fans and got people interested in where the story might be going.

 

Not to say I don't like any of Disney's live-action adaptations.  I've really enjoyed those based on their A-list flicks... The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast.  I'm really hoping they get around to Aladdin and the Little Mermaid.  Just that some of these recent live action movies, mostly those based on Disney's lesser properties, seem like strange choices.  And judging by the dismal box office of efforts like Pete's Dragon, Alice 2 and The BFG, I'd say audiences tend to agree.

 

Mostly I'd just really like another Daft Punk TRON score.

IIRC it made its production budget back, but the amount made after was so marginal there's a slim chance it could have lost a little once the production budget was factored in. 

 

It was up against stiff competition (at least locally) and didn't get a lot of advertising by way of comparison.

Pete's Dragon made $140 million on $65 million, with probably a lower marketing budget given how few people knew it existed, so it probably managed $20-30 million in profit.  So what he says is basically true.
