Honestly, I agree with him. Pocahontas' story was actually really sad, and they completely ignored it to make a generic princess movie. The tribe they consulted when making it were really pissed about how much they ignored.

/don't even get me started on the travesty that was Hercules
//I was really into Greek mythology when that movie came out, and I'm pretty sure it obliterated my love for Disney

SundaesChild: Not news indeed. Am I the only person who learned all this in an American history class by the time I was 12 or so?


I remember learning about Pocahontas in history class a few months before the film came out. Didn't stop me from.enjoying it for what it is-a Disney movie.

Not bad, Subby, but you should have started with the fact that she wouldn't have been wearing any clothes either, then mention that she would have been 11, and wrapped up by asking John Smith and the reader to have a seat over there.

TOY Moose: /ssb (sad story bro)
I was working at a movie theater when this 'film' came out. In walked a nice grandmother with 3 kids in tow. While getting their popcorn she mentioned that she was a direct decedent of Pocahontas and wanted her grandchildren to learn more about her.
I had to respond, "Mam, on behalf of every student of history, I apologize for what you are going to see. They did not do her justice."
She said that it was ok and that she knew they changed a few things around. So she took the kids in.
I gave a shout to my manager at the time and said that we'll be needing some refund tickets, and explained who just went in to the film.
To her credit, she stayed through the movie, and she came out bearly holding back the tears.
My manager gave her the refund tickets even though she sat through the whole thing.

/ Third worst film I ever watched
// Still feel bad for her.


Completely unwatchable BS.

I couldn't even make it to "Colors of the Wind", and I love that song.

Other movies I bailed on mid-watch:

The Flintstones

Star Wars -- 5th movie during the talky-talk picnic scene. God what a waste of brain cells.

As a Native American, all I can say is, good for you and your manager! You guys are off my SARS Blanket List.

When the toys were in the stores, my nephews and I would point at the shelves and laaauuuuugh.

Historically, not that bad of a guy.

Pocahontas saved him twice from being clubbed to death by her dad.

He'd have a decent libel case re: the film.
