These are the statistical top 500 movies of all time, according to 23 different websites

Hey everyone, great to be back again. Some of you might remember a similar title from a post I made back in April, where I made a list of the top 250 movies with 13 sources, or a preview of this list I made last month.
I want to emphasize that this is NOT an official ranking nor my personal ranking; it is just a statistical and, personally, interesting look at 500 amazing movies. These rankings reflect the opinions of thousands of critics and millions of people around the world. And I am glad that this list is able to cover a wide range of genres, decades, and countries. So before I get bombarded with "Why isn't X on here?" or "How is X above Y?" comments, I wanted to clear that up.
I sourced my data from Sight & Sound (both critic and director lists), TSPDT, iCheckMovies, 11 domestic websites (Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, IMDb, Letterboxd, TMDb, Trakt, Blu-Ray, MovieLens, RateYourMusic, Criticker, and Critics Choice), and 9 international audience sites (FilmAffinity, Douban, Naver, MUBI, Filmweb, Kinopoisk, CSFD, Moviemeter, and Senscritique). This balance of domestic/international ratings made the list more well-rounded and internationally representative (sites from Spain, China, Korea, Poland, Russia, Czech Republic, Netherlands, and France).
As for my algorithm, I weighted websites according to both their Alexa ranking and their number of votes compared to other sites. For example, since The Godfather has hundreds of thousands of votes on Letterboxd but only a couple thousand on Metacritic, Letterboxd would be weighted more heavily. After obtaining the weighted averages, I then added the movie's iCheckMovies' favs/checks ratio and TSPDT ranking, if applicable. Regarding TSPDT, I included the top 2000 movies; as an example of my calculations, Rear Window's ranking of #41 would add (2000-41)/2000=0.9795 points to its weighted average. I removed movies that had <7-8K votes on IMDb, as these mostly had low ratings and numbers of votes across different sites as well. For both Sight & Sound lists, I added between 0.5 and 1 point to a movie's score based on its ranking, which I thought was an adequate reflection of how difficult it is to be included on these lists. As examples, a #21 movie would have 0.9 points added while a #63 would have 0.69 points.
So without further ado, the statistical top 500 movies ever made. I separated the scores into overall, critics, domestic, and international columns to make comparisons easier. This list on Letterboxd.

2020.08.22 00:23 Var1etyJ0nes Rey Rivera: Note, Delray Beach, Etc

For the last several years, I’ve been researching money laundering & financial crimes as a (bizarre) hobby. I very recently watched the Netflix Unsolved Mysteries episode on Rey Rivera and find the case fascinating. I’m sure most of what I am about to write has already been covered by the swaths of amazing online research that is out there, but I figured I would still share a few thoughts in case an item or two can be of help to the cause/case. Breaking it up into 4 sections: i) Sweep It Under The Rug; ii) The Mentor & Daytona Beach Connections; iii) The Note; iv) Miscellaneous.
I) SWEEP IT UNDER THE RUG
I can’t speak to whether Agora was directly responsible for Rey’s death, but I can say pretty confidently that if his death were either directly or indirectly related to the work he did for Agora, then there would be substantial pressure on the Baltimore police department to sweep this case under the proverbial rug.
Why would the Baltimore PD have pressure on it?
  1. During the early/mid 2000’s, the FBI & CIA were all over the “pump & dump”-boiler-room and money laundering schemes in the OTC/penny-stock universe, as it was fertile ground for both domestic and foreign organized crime. A good late 90’s example of domestic and foreign organized crime rings coordinating together in the space is Felix Sater’s White Rock case, in which the Genovese, Bonnano, Gambino, Colombo & Russian OC families essentially formed a joint venture to defraud investors https://www.sec.gov/news/testimony/ts142000.htm). Agora’s network of investment & marketing-related businesses, at a minimum, intersected with this murky universe.
  2. Agora’s operations were multi-national.
  3. Agora was a large Baltimore employer operating within 50 miles of FBI & CIA headquarters.
  4. Certain key leadership (e.g. PS, His Mentor) at Agora were under or previously had been under indictment by the SEC.
Given 1-4, it’s almost certain that Agora either a) was under monitosurveillance by or serving as informant to an intelligence agency; b) had high-level government connections that were protecting them and allowing them to operate & profit in the space (possibly as informant); or c) both.
I highlight this because, regardless of whether it’s A, B or C, if Rivera’s death were even tangentially related to Agora (e.g. suicide due to business guilt), then there would be very influential forces within the government and/or intelligence agencies that would prefer there be as little investigation as possible into what caused his death. Some might discount this as conspiracy theory. I would argue that those who do are being naive and/or have not researched this universe sufficiently.

II) THE MENTOR & THE DAYTONA BEACH CONNECTIONS
What I find most surprising about this case is that MF did not garner more attention by investigators. There may be a very good reason for this, but the following jumped out to me when researching:

III) THE NOTE
It feels cryptic to me, but not in the sense of letter X = letter Y.
He’s paranoid, so he doesn’t want to state directly what is causing the paranoia.
He’s creative, so he chooses to write a cryptic short story that intertwines non-fiction (ie important hints) with fiction (ie the altered voice; fictitious Freemasons council; and “Game” theme).
I don’t think there’s a need to find direct connections between every item on his lists. Again, he’s paranoid, so he doesn’t want the message of each list to be overt. Instead, each list has an overarching theme, and then it is populated with both names/items that are connected to his paranoia (ie hints), as well as names/items that are not connected to his paranoia (ie decoys/masks).
My wild-guess, summarized interpretation:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CUynVxK37ReWqJ2r3jyue0hUMh36GfiRAzYXG-Q8IE8/edit#

IV) MISCELLANEOUS
A couple of random (most likely coincidental) additional items that I’ve come across while researching:
The 1988 SEC Complaint against Goldcor, Inc lists Richard D. Brown, Carl W. Martin, and Nitram Corp. as engaged in the distribution of unregistered Goldcor common stock. Nitram Corp is referenced as Martin’s family holding corp.. Alex Rovt coincidentally was associated with multiple Nitram-named entities in Florida (ie Nitram Ownership, Inc., Nitram, Inc., Nitram Chemicals, Inc.). Rovt sold his fertilizer company to Dmytro Firtash and co-authored the Rovt-Weldon (who was investigated by DOJ/FBI for his ties to Firtash’s former partner - Igor Makarov) Ukraine peace plan of Michael Cohen-Felix Sater-Michael Flynn fame.
u/n30_b1ackb0x posted an interesting theory about how Rey’s incorrect reference to Shyamalan being the director of The Others was an intentional mistake - The Others was directed by Alejandro Amenabar who directed the movie “Agora.” The timing seems is a little off since Agora did not come out until 3 years after Rey’s death, but it is a really crazy coincidence and conceivable that WB/MF were somehow involved in the very early stages of the financing. In checking out the IMDB page of Agora, I noticed that one of the producers is the Government of Malta. Government of Malta is listed as a producer on only 10 movies. One of these other movies, and the one immediately preceding Agora chronologically, is The Da Vinci Code.

2020.08.11 04:30 Windowsboy2018 a Very Very Very Very...VERY weird cancelled sonic movie staring...Keanu Reeves?!!!

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2u3b1CV4gBY/VRcPSQwCEoI/AAAAAAAAISg/hWzn27Cmz5g/s1600/SonicMovie.jpg
Okay so Sonic The hedgehog wonders of the world was debated for years on if the movie was in fact a cancelled project or just a hoax, and it seems like we got another one....remember that sonic movie poster with Keanu Reeves you probably saw floating around....well I guess something like that almost happened
A website called the internet is an America posted into on a alleged cancelled 90's sonic movie and it's...something, now take this with a grain of salt, this could likely be a joke article but then again into on sonic the hedgehog wonders of the world came out and nobody believed it could be a legit film, it was already debated by fans of that was either an actual cancelled film or just somebody making it up and having fun.
Anyway the article reads.
"We here at the Internet is in America never really set out to break any earth-shattering news. Alas, it looks like we’re the ones that are going to drop a colossal bombshell today, as we’ve gotten our grubby little paws on the top-secret script for a “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie that’s been under lock and key for almost two decades.
Yes, you heard that right. Way, way back in 1997, there were actually tentative plans for a LIVE-ACTION “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie. Of course, the Internet was still a fledgling thing back then, but I am shocked that even then, rumors about the movie never got out there. The even stranger thing? It was actually going to be a live-action “Sonic” movie produced by Sony!
Under strict confidentiality, we received not only a full working script for the film from an anonymous source, but even got a few promotional materials to go along with it. We’re talking top-line, executive level marketing blueprints, the kind of stuff we’d probably go to jail for publishing. Rest assured, however, that in the gargantuan 401 page document, there was PLENTY to discuss.
According to the documents, the film was going to begin production in 1997, with a targeted summer 1998 theatrical release. The suits at Sony Pictures were prepared to put a LOT of money into the flick, with estimates for the budget hovering between $70 to $90 million. Now, as to how Sony wound up with the film rights, you may be wondering? Well, according to the materials we received, Sega actually struck a licensing deal with Sony Pictures back in 1989, right after “The Wizard” was released. Evidently, the suits at Sega of America were hoping for some kind of similar, product placement strewn flick to herald the arrival of the Genesis in North America, but nothing looked to have come out of it. However, the deal did give Sony a 10 year exclusive deal with Sega, meaning that if any film based on a Sega property were to come to fruition, the suits at Sony would be the ones handling it. It sounds strange, to be sure, but remember: back in 1989, the term “Playstation” wasn’t even a zygote of a germ of an idea, and as the clear cut “number two” of the gaming world, a partnership with Sega seemed pretty darn reasonable, from a marketing standpoint.
It’s pretty easy to put two and two together. Although Sega and Sony were indeed competing brands in 1997, Sony Pictures, by default, were to hold onto the Sega film rights for another two years. With the license about to expire, the suits at Sony decided to go ahead and film a movie before the rights reverted back to Sega, who could probably have sold off their licensing rights at a much higher price than that paid by Sony back in ‘89.
After spending the better part of the year poring over the materials e-mailed to us, I’ve determined that the documents have to be authentic. There’s just so much nuance and depth, with the highly detailed materials spelling out things to a tee. Oh yes, there was a script and marketing strategies included, but there was so much more, including a good 40 pages of executive notes on who the studio wanted to direct the film and who would star in it.
As for the script itself, it is … well, not really what you would expect out of a “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie. As many liberties as the filmmakers behind the “Super Mario Brothers” flick took, the “Sonic” screenwriter seemingly went as far as he possibly could to deviate from the established series mythos. I mean, the characters are there, but as to how they are portrayed in the film … well, you’ll see.
The script was written by someone named “J.R. Duff,” which has to be a pseudonym. According to the IMDB, no such person has any major screenwriting credits, and since Sony was willing to bankroll so much money into the production (with advertising costs factored in, well over $100 million in pre-Lewinksy dollars!) it seems almost implausible that the suits would place the fate of the picture in the hands of a first-timer. Alas, considering the strange similarities the script shares with some MIGHTY popular films a few years down the line, I have my guesses as to who the mysterious penman actually was.
As far as the production team, however, Sony were really dead-set on a specific crew. The only directorial name attached to the feature in the associated memos was Stephen Hopkins, the same guy that directed “Blown Away” and “Predator 2.” He had just wrapped up “The Ghost and the Darkness,” and at the time at least, seemed poised to be one of the next big Hollywood filmmakers.
As for the cast, it was pretty damn stacked. Playing Sonic was none other than Keanu Reeves, who was still a hot item following the surprise success of “Speed” a few years earlier. Portraying Dr. Robotnik was Danny Devito, which in hindsight, is pretty much the ideal casting choice, something as obvious as asking Patrick Stewart to play Professor X. And rounding out the supporting cast, we had Steve Buscemi as Tails and emerging Hollywood leading man Vin Diesel, taking on the role of Knuckles. Unfortunately, those are the only characters in the film that actually exist in the canonical “Sonic” world we all know and love, although there are a few additional characters in the script who seem to be oblique nods to other supporting Sonic characters.
Now, as for the script itself, it’s absolutely bizarre, owing more to “Stargate” than “Sonic and Knuckles.” It also has a general plotline that seems almost impossibly similar to “Avatar,” with more than a few “The Matrix”-like themes chunked in there.
In the screenplay, Sonic isn’t actually a hedgehog. In fact, he’s a flesh and blood human character, named Steve “Sonic” Harris, who is some sort of experimental fighter jet pilot. The initial setting of the movie, if you can believe it, is Area 51, where the U.S. government is hard at work on some sort of extra-dimensional portal (the script explicitly refers to it as a “teleportation platform” but that’s not exactly what it technically does, you see.)
Harris is the top pilot in the air force’s top squadron. He’s flanked on ground control by Tom “Tails” Proctor, a former top-tier fighter pilot that lost the use of his legs in an experimental aircraft crash. Overseeing the program is Dr. Ivan Robotnik, a Russian immigrant who is on the verge of a huge extra-dimensional travel breakthrough.
And here’s where things get a little complicated. The script never explicitly tells us where this extra-dimensional plane is, so it could be some kind of alternate reality world or a faraway alien planet or even some kind of computer-generated nether-realm. Wherever it is, it’s a very jungle-like place, where humans apparently evolved from shrews instead of apes. The world, which is never explicitly named, is also home to an abundant resource called RING, which stands for “radioactive isotope neutralizing grain.” For the shrew-people inhabitants, it’s the most common source of nutrition, but in OUR world, it also has incredible nuclear energy capabilities. At about the 30 minute mark, the portal to this other world is opened, and Steve/Sonic enters it.
From here, the movie kind of turns into “Planet of the Apes,” with Steve (who is wearing an absolutely bizarre metal suit, complete with razor sharp spikes on his back) is captured by shrew-people. In an underground cavern, he meets their leader, a red echidna named “Knuckles” who, for some reason knows English. Instead of killing him, he helps him find a portal back to our world, although he advises him to never, ever return.
After that, there’s a lengthy bit about Robotnik “shutting down” the portal experiment for safety reasons. However, Sonic decides to snoop in on one of Robotnik’s late night sessions, and he uncovers a horrible secret: the army is actually sending armored platoons into the shrew-world to collect RING, completely razing their world in the process! If that wasn’t enough, Robotnik is actually a Soviet turncoat, who plans on giving RING to the former USSR military so they can use it as a weapon against the Western World!
After some convincing, Sonic manages to convince Tails and two other site officials -- a love interest named Melissa and a 300 pound soldier named simply Biggsy -- to don the experimental armor and hop into the other world so he can prove once and for all that Robotnik is a no good sonofabitch. It takes some goading, but eventually they all make it into the shrew planet and, sure enough, the thing is in rubble. Robotnik -- who we learn left hundreds of similar portals throughout Russia -- has pretty much taken over the entire planet, appointing himself ruler of the land. The shrew people are enslaved and forced to mine for RING, and he oversees the realm aboard a gigantic flying device. The good guys are spotted by Robotnik’s troops, and they end up having a massive lazer gun(!) battle; eventually, the four heroes get sucked into an underground cavern, where they are rescued by Knuckles.
While the robo army makes their way underground, Knuckles explains to Sonic what the fabled “Chaos Emeralds” are. Apparently, they are some sort of crystals containing the spirits of all of the great shrew planet warriors of yore. Harkening back to the Arthurian legend, he tells Sonic then when the planet needs them the most, they will select an “alien warrior” to save the entire race. This leads to another underground clash, with Knuckles getting killed. In his dying breath, he gives Sonic a red emerald, which he said will help guide him to the “Chamber of the Immortals.”
Thankfully, said chamber is really close by, and Sonic comes face to face with five warrior ghosts, who say he his been selected by the shrew gods to save them from Robotnik. The five gems start circling around him, and he turns a radioactive orange color -- “A Super-Sonic state,” the script describes it.
This leads to the grand finale, in which Super-Sonic and Dr. Robotnik (who is commanding an 80 foot tall mech) duke it out. Using his super speed abilities, Sonic ultimately shreds Robotnik in two, finding a hand-dandy time-reversal nearby that completely disrupts the space and time fabric and leaves shrew world just the way it was before Robotnik started meddling with it.
Back on the base, nobody except Steve/Sonic has any recollection of the transdimensional portal or the war, and apparently, the finale zonked Dr. Robotnik completely out of existence. Now, there’s a new lead researcher onsite, a mustachioed German physicist named -- and I shit you not -- DR. MAGNUM WILY. Of course, he’s a no-good sonofabitch that’s working on the same device Robotnik was, only this time, we learn he’s secretly planning on using the portal to start the Fourth Reich!
The film ends on an upbeat note, with Steve and Melissa snogging and Biggsy and Tails making fun of them. And then, in the film’s final scene, Steve asks his pals how they want to spend the rest of the evening, to which Tails responds “I don’t know. Want to go play some Sega?”
You don't really need me to tell you that the script, for lack of a better term, was really, REALLY out there. It may have taken some EXTREME liberties with the license, but at the end of the day, in the hands of a capable production crew, it probably wouldn't have been half bad. After reading through the script a second time, the almost hard sci-fi bent actually seemed to grow on me -- if nothing else, it certainly would have been worlds better than utter garbage like "Street Fighter" and the second "Mortal Kombat" movie.
It's mere conjecture on my part, but I am almost certain the screenwriter was Akiva Goldsman. The dialogue and description of the costumes seems almost uncannily similar to the 1998 "Lost in Space" movie, which I am pretty sure is what the script was eventually recycled into. That, and the rodent-people behave in a fashion similar to the zombies in "I Am Legend," and the vehicles, in hindsight, sound an awful lot like the rides in "I, Robot." And yes, a few bits of "Batman and Robin"-level, groan-worthy camp dialogue makes it in there, as well.
As for the ultimate fate of the picture, I'm not entirely sure what happened. There was a TON of promotional plans included (the packet e-mailed to me largely consisted of advertising plans and prototypes for tie-in products, like fast food premiums) so something really major had to have happened with the Sony brass for the project to be abandoned. I can't confirm anything, but it may have had something to do with the console wars heating up -- after all, why pimp your number two largest competitor, even if you take in most of the money from the flick? Ironically enough, with Sega exiting the hardware arena, talks of another Sonic live-action film have been bandied about, with Sony yet again set to produce it.
Much like the ill-fated Burton "Superman" flick and the version of "Elm Street 3" where Freddy turns into grandma monsters and says semi-racist things while eating black children, I reckon this here '90s "Sonic" is something we'll just have to imagine in the multiplex of our heads. More than anything, I am just shocked that project was kept under wraps for as long as it was -- apparently, Sony's electronic security was WAY better during the Clinton years than it is today.
It may not have been the "Sonic" movie we all dreamed of, but for what it was (and wasn't) I don't think it would have panned out that horribly, either. I mean, it was a movie starring Danny Devito as an evil Ruskie fighting mutant echidnas and Neo in a cyborg battle suit -- at the very least, it would have been as good as "Wild, Wild West," wouldn't it? "
Yeah....pretty weird right?....this certainly sounds like a box office flop that would bomb even harder then super Mario bros, hell this definitely goes great with what the Mario bros movie did.
Now could this be real?...idk, some sonic projects like sonic Armageddon and wonders of the world was debated whether it it was legit project of just a hoax u too it was revealed yes they we're in fact cancelled films.
And then again wonders of the world did had a second draft where sonic was a human boy, who after a freak accident turns into sonic...yes that is real and it almost happened.
Anyway let me know down below what you guys think of this, and do you believe this is real

2020.08.11 04:20 Windowsboy2018 a Very Very Very Very...VERY weird cancelled sonic movie staring...Keanu Reeves?!!!

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2u3b1CV4gBY/VRcPSQwCEoI/AAAAAAAAISg/hWzn27Cmz5g/s1600/SonicMovie.jpg
Okay so Sonic The hedgehog wonders of the world was debated for years on if the movie was in fact a cancelled project or just a hoax, and it seems like we got another one....remember that sonic movie poster with Keanu Reeves you probably saw floating around....well I guess something like that almost happened
A website called the internet is an America posted into on a alleged cancelled 90's sonic movie and it's...something, now take this with a grain of salt, this could likely be a joke article but then again into on sonic the hedgehog wonders of the world came out and nobody believed it could be a legit film, it was already debated by fans of that was either an actual cancelled film or just somebody making it up and having fun.
Anyway the article reads.
"We here at the Internet is in America never really set out to break any earth-shattering news. Alas, it looks like we’re the ones that are going to drop a colossal bombshell today, as we’ve gotten our grubby little paws on the top-secret script for a “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie that’s been under lock and key for almost two decades.
Yes, you heard that right. Way, way back in 1997, there were actually tentative plans for a LIVE-ACTION “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie. Of course, the Internet was still a fledgling thing back then, but I am shocked that even then, rumors about the movie never got out there. The even stranger thing? It was actually going to be a live-action “Sonic” movie produced by Sony!
Under strict confidentiality, we received not only a full working script for the film from an anonymous source, but even got a few promotional materials to go along with it. We’re talking top-line, executive level marketing blueprints, the kind of stuff we’d probably go to jail for publishing. Rest assured, however, that in the gargantuan 401 page document, there was PLENTY to discuss.
According to the documents, the film was going to begin production in 1997, with a targeted summer 1998 theatrical release. The suits at Sony Pictures were prepared to put a LOT of money into the flick, with estimates for the budget hovering between $70 to $90 million. Now, as to how Sony wound up with the film rights, you may be wondering? Well, according to the materials we received, Sega actually struck a licensing deal with Sony Pictures back in 1989, right after “The Wizard” was released. Evidently, the suits at Sega of America were hoping for some kind of similar, product placement strewn flick to herald the arrival of the Genesis in North America, but nothing looked to have come out of it. However, the deal did give Sony a 10 year exclusive deal with Sega, meaning that if any film based on a Sega property were to come to fruition, the suits at Sony would be the ones handling it. It sounds strange, to be sure, but remember: back in 1989, the term “Playstation” wasn’t even a zygote of a germ of an idea, and as the clear cut “number two” of the gaming world, a partnership with Sega seemed pretty darn reasonable, from a marketing standpoint.
It’s pretty easy to put two and two together. Although Sega and Sony were indeed competing brands in 1997, Sony Pictures, by default, were to hold onto the Sega film rights for another two years. With the license about to expire, the suits at Sony decided to go ahead and film a movie before the rights reverted back to Sega, who could probably have sold off their licensing rights at a much higher price than that paid by Sony back in ‘89.

2020.08.04 03:26 pantangeli 'Peninsula' is coming to US theaters August 21st (hopefully), but not due for digital until next year. Until then there are a few other interesting titles due for release this month

https://imgur.com/gallery/E3tfs5K
https://letterboxd.com/sneakycheese/list/august-2020-horror-and-scifi-releases/
According to Deadline there may be as many as 2,500 theaters re-opened by mid month. Of course there will be many COVID intervention measures including capacity restrictions. It will probably be like walking into a hospital. Train to Busan sequel Peninsula has opted to go with a theater release. The film doesn't plan to come out on digital until next year and has partnered with Shudder.
I'm looking forward particularly to the Russian SciFi/Horror film Sputnik and La llorna -- no not the film that flopped last year, that was The Curse of La Llorona. The one due on Shudder August 6th is a Guatemalan/French production. La llorna gathered a fair amount of positive mention while it was on the Festival circuit.
There are also 2 movies due about Bigfoot. Big Fur is a documentary about a World Champion taxidermist (no joke) who loved the mythical big guy so much he decided to make one. Monstrous is by director Bruce Wemple whose last movie Lake Artifact got pretty crap reviews. I thought it was better than most, though, and have some hopes for Monstrous based on the trailer.
The Western/Horror film The Pale Door and Open 24 Hours, which looks to have been influenced by John Carpenter's short film "Gas Station Attendant", also caught my eye.
Below are the official descriptions and trailers for the movies I highlighted. Click the links above it you want a full rundown on August releases.

2020.05.13 19:44 MarkDoingRandomStuff Someone acutally made a movie about Sad Satan.

(change the post flair if needed.) Hello. So,i found something while looking through images that releated to the game sad satan, untill i saw an IMDB link, to a movie called "Sad Satan". I was shocked, like, who would make a movie on a game that was in the deep web that releates to murders,pedophiles,and child pornography,and with really graphic images.
I was curious of what it was, so i checked it out.
The movie was created in 2018. The filming locations were in "Russia,Moscow Oblast". Moscow Oblast, Russia (full movie) Skhodnenskoe cemetery, Khimki, Moscow Oblast, Russia (ending scenes) Khimki, Moscow Oblast, Russia (scenes in the maze) Russia (country of filming) Skhodnya, Khimki, Moscow Oblast, Russia (some scenes) Staroskhodnenskoe cemetery, Khimki, Moscow Oblast, Russia (ending scenes) The movie's release date was April 25,2018.
Sergey A,was the cast, and who also directed and was also the writer for the movie,he basically did everything. Severniy les - Omut did the music for Credit.
The cover looked like There was a screenshot from the game, we can see the title with a russian text under it,which says "Sad Satan Movie". The description for the movie says "You are in the hell. Nobody helps you. It's only a dark. It's only a cry. It's only the real hell."
There are about 8 photos,the 7 photos are scenes from the movie, and the final one is the cover. There is one video There we can see the full movie, and its 7 miniutes and 1 seconds.
There are also translations for the english texts to russian. And for some reason, it also said its 18+,but i wasn't able to find any scene which might be 18+,so maybe it was just a joke.
The movie was also Created by "Terra Studios Russian".
The movie is just like from the game itself, like black and white, distorted music,and even the reverse version of the Hong Kong 97 song. (I love Beijing Tianamen),but There were no graphic images. I am pretty sure There were two places in the movie, an office working place, and a cemetery.
I am pretty sure that this is the only information i Got. If you guys found something, then heres the link to the movie (its also on yt):https://m.imdb.com/title/tt8334120/?ref_=vp_vi_tt Bye!

2020.05.13 15:24 TheBokaBreeze ‘Stepan’s Reminder’ (Konstantin Ershov, 1976)

Criminally unknown. Far superior to the much better known Viy, from the same director (Konstantin Ershov)
One of the more emotionally pungent, heart-rending fantasy films ever made. Right on par with Aleksandr Ptushko’s legendary The Stone Flower (one of the greatest Eastern European films of all time, and one that sits firmly in my top 15/20), and both films are adaptations of the same folktale, but where Stone Flower keeps it light and airy, Stepan’s Reminder isn’t afraid to be daring, exploring the scorn and jealousy that the faerie-realm has been known to display toward us humans. The witch turns Stepan’s life upside down and subsequently affects his family in ways that she will never be able to comprehend, all because she is unable to experience the love and warmth that they have between them in spades
I flirted with giving this a more in depth review, but there aren’t enough adjectives available to communicate it’s sheer power and grace. The fact that mine is the first review of Stepan’s Reminder on LBXD, and the fact that there aren’t any on IMDB, is an absolute crime against cinephiles, and is pretty upsetting, especially considering it’s (far inferior) sister film Viy is so notorious and lauded. There is so much more that could be said about Stepan’s Reminder, but I’ll refrain.... go in blind and you will be greatly rewarded
Gennadiy Egorov’s powerful turn as our protagonist Stepan was spellbinding.... he is a fiery, raging shitstorm, tearing through the Siberian countryside with reckless abandon...he is a complicated man who loves his family above all else, but the mystical danger of the witch’s forest beckons him....it desperately attempts to get Stepan to abandon a loving, earthly family dynamic, and to surrender his spirit and soul....the forest and it’s queen constantly threaten to swallow him whole... Why Egorov only acted in 9 productions total is completely beyond me....he effortlessly carries this film, and tosses the rest of the cast on his back
Cannot recommend this titan of Russian Fantastika enough. It is one of the reigning kings of the genre. A marvel of cinematography. Ershov captures the serenity and madness of rural Russian forest life better than just about anyone. It’s a fascinating dichotomy that few will ever get to experience in the flesh, but Stepan’s Reminder lures you into this intoxicating realm, drenching and coating the viewer’s heart in sticky, sappy, fragrant needle pine balm
Again, very, very upsetting that Stepan’s Reminder is almost totally unknown outside of Russia. Hopefully this write-up makes strides toward changing that

2020.05.13 01:39 Windowsboy2018 Very Very weird cancelled sonic movie staring...Keanu Reeves?

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2u3b1CV4gBY/VRcPSQwCEoI/AAAAAAAAISg/hWzn27Cmz5g/s1600/SonicMovie.jpg
Okay so Sonic The hedgehog wonders of the world was debated for years on if the movie was in fact a cancelled project or just a hoax, and it seems like we got another one....remember that sonic movie poster with Keanu Reeves you probably saw floating around....well I guess something like that almost happened
A website called the internet is an America posted into on a alleged cancelled 90's sonic movie and it's...something, now take this with a grain of salt, this could likely be a joke article but then again into on sonic the hedgehog wonders of the world came out and nobody believed it could be a legit film, it was already debated by fans of that was either an actual cancelled film or just somebody making it up and having fun.
Anyway the article reads.
"We here at the Internet is in America never really set out to break any earth-shattering news. Alas, it looks like we’re the ones that are going to drop a colossal bombshell today, as we’ve gotten our grubby little paws on the top-secret script for a “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie that’s been under lock and key for almost two decades.
Yes, you heard that right. Way, way back in 1997, there were actually tentative plans for a LIVE-ACTION “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie. Of course, the Internet was still a fledgling thing back then, but I am shocked that even then, rumors about the movie never got out there. The even stranger thing? It was actually going to be a live-action “Sonic” movie produced by Sony!
Under strict confidentiality, we received not only a full working script for the film from an anonymous source, but even got a few promotional materials to go along with it. We’re talking top-line, executive level marketing blueprints, the kind of stuff we’d probably go to jail for publishing. Rest assured, however, that in the gargantuan 401 page document, there was PLENTY to discuss.
According to the documents, the film was going to begin production in 1997, with a targeted summer 1998 theatrical release. The suits at Sony Pictures were prepared to put a LOT of money into the flick, with estimates for the budget hovering between $70 to $90 million. Now, as to how Sony wound up with the film rights, you may be wondering? Well, according to the materials we received, Sega actually struck a licensing deal with Sony Pictures back in 1989, right after “The Wizard” was released. Evidently, the suits at Sega of America were hoping for some kind of similar, product placement strewn flick to herald the arrival of the Genesis in North America, but nothing looked to have come out of it. However, the deal did give Sony a 10 year exclusive deal with Sega, meaning that if any film based on a Sega property were to come to fruition, the suits at Sony would be the ones handling it. It sounds strange, to be sure, but remember: back in 1989, the term “Playstation” wasn’t even a zygote of a germ of an idea, and as the clear cut “number two” of the gaming world, a partnership with Sega seemed pretty darn reasonable, from a marketing standpoint.
It’s pretty easy to put two and two together. Although Sega and Sony were indeed competing brands in 1997, Sony Pictures, by default, were to hold onto the Sega film rights for another two years. With the license about to expire, the suits at Sony decided to go ahead and film a movie before the rights reverted back to Sega, who could probably have sold off their licensing rights at a much higher price than that paid by Sony back in ‘89.
After spending the better part of the year poring over the materials e-mailed to us, I’ve determined that the documents have to be authentic. There’s just so much nuance and depth, with the highly detailed materials spelling out things to a tee. Oh yes, there was a script and marketing strategies included, but there was so much more, including a good 40 pages of executive notes on who the studio wanted to direct the film and who would star in it.
As for the script itself, it is … well, not really what you would expect out of a “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie. As many liberties as the filmmakers behind the “Super Mario Brothers” flick took, the “Sonic” screenwriter seemingly went as far as he possibly could to deviate from the established series mythos. I mean, the characters are there, but as to how they are portrayed in the film … well, you’ll see.
The script was written by someone named “J.R. Duff,” which has to be a pseudonym. According to the IMDB, no such person has any major screenwriting credits, and since Sony was willing to bankroll so much money into the production (with advertising costs factored in, well over $100 million in pre-Lewinksy dollars!) it seems almost implausible that the suits would place the fate of the picture in the hands of a first-timer. Alas, considering the strange similarities the script shares with some MIGHTY popular films a few years down the line, I have my guesses as to who the mysterious penman actually was.
As far as the production team, however, Sony were really dead-set on a specific crew. The only directorial name attached to the feature in the associated memos was Stephen Hopkins, the same guy that directed “Blown Away” and “Predator 2.” He had just wrapped up “The Ghost and the Darkness,” and at the time at least, seemed poised to be one of the next big Hollywood filmmakers.
As for the cast, it was pretty damn stacked. Playing Sonic was none other than Keanu Reeves, who was still a hot item following the surprise success of “Speed” a few years earlier. Portraying Dr. Robotnik was Danny Devito, which in hindsight, is pretty much the ideal casting choice, something as obvious as asking Patrick Stewart to play Professor X. And rounding out the supporting cast, we had Steve Buscemi as Tails and emerging Hollywood leading man Vin Diesel, taking on the role of Knuckles. Unfortunately, those are the only characters in the film that actually exist in the canonical “Sonic” world we all know and love, although there are a few additional characters in the script who seem to be oblique nods to other supporting Sonic characters.
Now, as for the script itself, it’s absolutely bizarre, owing more to “Stargate” than “Sonic and Knuckles.” It also has a general plotline that seems almost impossibly similar to “Avatar,” with more than a few “The Matrix”-like themes chunked in there.
In the screenplay, Sonic isn’t actually a hedgehog. In fact, he’s a flesh and blood human character, named Steve “Sonic” Harris, who is some sort of experimental fighter jet pilot. The initial setting of the movie, if you can believe it, is Area 51, where the U.S. government is hard at work on some sort of extra-dimensional portal (the script explicitly refers to it as a “teleportation platform” but that’s not exactly what it technically does, you see.)
Harris is the top pilot in the air force’s top squadron. He’s flanked on ground control by Tom “Tails” Proctor, a former top-tier fighter pilot that lost the use of his legs in an experimental aircraft crash. Overseeing the program is Dr. Ivan Robotnik, a Russian immigrant who is on the verge of a huge extra-dimensional travel breakthrough.
And here’s where things get a little complicated. The script never explicitly tells us where this extra-dimensional plane is, so it could be some kind of alternate reality world or a faraway alien planet or even some kind of computer-generated nether-realm. Wherever it is, it’s a very jungle-like place, where humans apparently evolved from shrews instead of apes. The world, which is never explicitly named, is also home to an abundant resource called RING, which stands for “radioactive isotope neutralizing grain.” For the shrew-people inhabitants, it’s the most common source of nutrition, but in OUR world, it also has incredible nuclear energy capabilities. At about the 30 minute mark, the portal to this other world is opened, and Steve/Sonic enters it.
From here, the movie kind of turns into “Planet of the Apes,” with Steve (who is wearing an absolutely bizarre metal suit, complete with razor sharp spikes on his back) is captured by shrew-people. In an underground cavern, he meets their leader, a red echidna named “Knuckles” who, for some reason knows English. Instead of killing him, he helps him find a portal back to our world, although he advises him to never, ever return.
After that, there’s a lengthy bit about Robotnik “shutting down” the portal experiment for safety reasons. However, Sonic decides to snoop in on one of Robotnik’s late night sessions, and he uncovers a horrible secret: the army is actually sending armored platoons into the shrew-world to collect RING, completely razing their world in the process! If that wasn’t enough, Robotnik is actually a Soviet turncoat, who plans on giving RING to the former USSR military so they can use it as a weapon against the Western World!
After some convincing, Sonic manages to convince Tails and two other site officials -- a love interest named Melissa and a 300 pound soldier named simply Biggsy -- to don the experimental armor and hop into the other world so he can prove once and for all that Robotnik is a no good sonofabitch. It takes some goading, but eventually they all make it into the shrew planet and, sure enough, the thing is in rubble. Robotnik -- who we learn left hundreds of similar portals throughout Russia -- has pretty much taken over the entire planet, appointing himself ruler of the land. The shrew people are enslaved and forced to mine for RING, and he oversees the realm aboard a gigantic flying device. The good guys are spotted by Robotnik’s troops, and they end up having a massive lazer gun(!) battle; eventually, the four heroes get sucked into an underground cavern, where they are rescued by Knuckles.
While the robo army makes their way underground, Knuckles explains to Sonic what the fabled “Chaos Emeralds” are. Apparently, they are some sort of crystals containing the spirits of all of the great shrew planet warriors of yore. Harkening back to the Arthurian legend, he tells Sonic then when the planet needs them the most, they will select an “alien warrior” to save the entire race. This leads to another underground clash, with Knuckles getting killed. In his dying breath, he gives Sonic a red emerald, which he said will help guide him to the “Chamber of the Immortals.”
Thankfully, said chamber is really close by, and Sonic comes face to face with five warrior ghosts, who say he his been selected by the shrew gods to save them from Robotnik. The five gems start circling around him, and he turns a radioactive orange color -- “A Super-Sonic state,” the script describes it.
This leads to the grand finale, in which Super-Sonic and Dr. Robotnik (who is commanding an 80 foot tall mech) duke it out. Using his super speed abilities, Sonic ultimately shreds Robotnik in two, finding a hand-dandy time-reversal nearby that completely disrupts the space and time fabric and leaves shrew world just the way it was before Robotnik started meddling with it.
Back on the base, nobody except Steve/Sonic has any recollection of the transdimensional portal or the war, and apparently, the finale zonked Dr. Robotnik completely out of existence. Now, there’s a new lead researcher onsite, a mustachioed German physicist named -- and I shit you not -- DR. MAGNUM WILY. Of course, he’s a no-good sonofabitch that’s working on the same device Robotnik was, only this time, we learn he’s secretly planning on using the portal to start the Fourth Reich!
The film ends on an upbeat note, with Steve and Melissa snogging and Biggsy and Tails making fun of them. And then, in the film’s final scene, Steve asks his pals how they want to spend the rest of the evening, to which Tails responds “I don’t know. Want to go play some Sega?”
You don't really need me to tell you that the script, for lack of a better term, was really, REALLY out there. It may have taken some EXTREME liberties with the license, but at the end of the day, in the hands of a capable production crew, it probably wouldn't have been half bad. After reading through the script a second time, the almost hard sci-fi bent actually seemed to grow on me -- if nothing else, it certainly would have been worlds better than utter garbage like "Street Fighter" and the second "Mortal Kombat" movie.
It's mere conjecture on my part, but I am almost certain the screenwriter was Akiva Goldsman. The dialogue and description of the costumes seems almost uncannily similar to the 1998 "Lost in Space" movie, which I am pretty sure is what the script was eventually recycled into. That, and the rodent-people behave in a fashion similar to the zombies in "I Am Legend," and the vehicles, in hindsight, sound an awful lot like the rides in "I, Robot." And yes, a few bits of "Batman and Robin"-level, groan-worthy camp dialogue makes it in there, as well.
As for the ultimate fate of the picture, I'm not entirely sure what happened. There was a TON of promotional plans included (the packet e-mailed to me largely consisted of advertising plans and prototypes for tie-in products, like fast food premiums) so something really major had to have happened with the Sony brass for the project to be abandoned. I can't confirm anything, but it may have had something to do with the console wars heating up -- after all, why pimp your number two largest competitor, even if you take in most of the money from the flick? Ironically enough, with Sega exiting the hardware arena, talks of another Sonic live-action film have been bandied about, with Sony yet again set to produce it.
Much like the ill-fated Burton "Superman" flick and the version of "Elm Street 3" where Freddy turns into grandma monsters and says semi-racist things while eating black children, I reckon this here '90s "Sonic" is something we'll just have to imagine in the multiplex of our heads. More than anything, I am just shocked that project was kept under wraps for as long as it was -- apparently, Sony's electronic security was WAY better during the Clinton years than it is today.
It may not have been the "Sonic" movie we all dreamed of, but for what it was (and wasn't) I don't think it would have panned out that horribly, either. I mean, it was a movie starring Danny Devito as an evil Ruskie fighting mutant echidnas and Neo in a cyborg battle suit -- at the very least, it would have been as good as "Wild, Wild West," wouldn't it? "
Yeah....pretty weird right?....this certainly sounds like a box office flop that would bomb even harder then super Mario bros, hell this definitely goes great with what the Mario bros movie did.
Now could this be real?...idk, some sonic projects like sonic Armageddon and wonders of the world was debated whether it it was legit project of just a hoax u too it was revealed yes they we're in fact cancelled films.
And then again wonders of the world did had a second draft where sonic was a human boy, who after a freak accident turns into sonic...yes that is real and it almost happened.
Anyway let me know down below what you guys think of this, and do you believe this is real

2020.05.04 00:25 daedalus_rises Annotation of JFK to 9/11: Everything is a Rich Man’s Trick, Part 1

In this great challenge to our current historical narrative, author and narrator, Francis Richard Conolly (website), uses a large amount of evidence to show that many of the worst events in the 20th century were caused by a linked group of powerful people. Part 1 of the documentary JFK to 9/11: Everything is a Rich Man’s Trick (youtube) is summarized below with links to many to his claims and the people he mentions. In this part of the documentary, I will explore the events transpiring from the late 19th century to the end of WWII.
I think Conolly is truly one of the great conspiracy theorists of the 20th century, and unlike other great theorists such as Bill Cooper or Eustace Mullins, he made his greatest work a documentary. I love this documentary because he includes so many details. The devil is in the details, and as he shows, the devil is very much alive.
Notes:
19th Century
WWI & Interwar Period
WWII
“The incredible truth which the rich elite have managed to hide from the world for 70 years through their control of school books and our education system is that the Nazi war machine was actually an American business” -Conolly
The Holocaust
Below is the most shocking thing that I learned in this documentary. The most vilified death machine ever to exist, came into existence with the full support of the elite.
In Part 2, I will explore what he says about the Mafia and the assassination of JFK. He gives an incredibly detailed account of how JFK’s assassination went down, and who wanted him dead. I strongly encourage you to watch the documentary for yourself (youtube). Feel free to repost, post to your websites/facebook in full. Thank you for reading and let me know what you think!

2020.02.07 00:46 lowkeyterrible me_irlgbt survey results! really long post! this took me 6 days! exclamation mark!

Long post. REALLY long post. buckle in.

TLDR at the end

First off, thanks to everybody who responded! There were 467 responses in total, which is amazing. I know filling out surveys online can be boring, so I really appreciate you all indulging me for this.
A few notes before we get started!
Now. Let's get started with the results.

Total survey responses: 467

DEMOGRAPHICS SECTION

AGE: 460 responses

https://imgur.com/thGOvqi
As we can see here, the majority of respondents are between the ages of 13-24, with most being 18-24. No surprise, this pretty much tracks with the general demographics of reddit. We have 3 tiny kiddos who responded, bless them. One person over 60, heyhowareyougorge. It’s interesting to cross-reference the age demographics with the type of posts we see here. I’m in my early 20s, which in gay years is like being in your early 40s, and i’ve been out for years. I see a lot of closet or coming out type posts, which I personally don’t relate to as much any more, but that totally tracks with the amount of youngins we have here. If you’re looking to karma whore, here’s the data you need.

COUNTRY: 457 responses

https://imgur.com/xwAb3g8
So, clearly very US-heavy. Again, not a surprise here for a US-based website. I would like to confess to purposefully splitting up the UK demographics out of sheer curiosity too; I’m Scottish and wanted to know how many fellow Scots I had. Happenin troops.
I also wanted to use this to see how many people were from countries with less legal protections for being LGBT. The countries in here I’d particularly like to highlight are:
Dominica, where it is illegal to be gay. Penalties include a 10 year prison sentence, or “incarceration in a psychiatric institution.” Absolutely no legal protections for any LGBT people. That’s pretty fucked.
India has no legally recognised same sex unions, no same sex marriage, no adoption, but all of these things have been proposed. some anti-discrimination laws. They have a third gender option, called hijra. Trans people do have some legal recognition of gender, which is nice. As far as I’m aware, this situation is pretty unique to India.
Qatar, where same-sex sexual activity is punished by fines, imprisonment, or the death penalty. Obviously no legal protections.
Russia, where same-sex sexual activity is technically legal, but in Chechnya, it is heavily punished. Gay people are abducted and sent to concentration camps in this region. Russia has done little to prevent this.
Singapore, where there is technically punishment of up to 2 years in prison for male same-sex sexual activity, but this is apparently not enforced any more. F/F is legal though.
Malaysia, where it remains illegal to be gay. Punishments can be up to 20 years in prison, fines, or whippings, just for engaging in same-sex sexual activity. However, a 2016 court ruling did recognise gender changes as a fundamental constitutional right, according to wikipedia.
I’d like us to take a moment to remember, especially if you’re from the US, that the fight for LGBT rights is far from over. It’s not some distant thing. Even people on this good gay subreddit could face severe punishments for their identity. If you are in a country with legal protections, take a moment to be thankful. If you can, please educate yourself on the state of LGBT rights in these countries, and see if you can do anything to help.

ETHNICITY: 463 responses

https://imgur.com/hk6KINj
Again, not particularly surprising results here. Reddit is a pretty overwhelmingly white website. I’m a full blown white person so I’m not sure how much I can really say here without verging out of my own lane. I do think we should keep this in mind however, because as a largely white subreddit we may not have so many people calling out racism when they see it. I don’t want POC to feel ignored here just because they make up a smaller percentage of our demographics, so I welcome any POC responses here as to how we’re doing with that. I personally haven’t seen too much racism, as the bigotry we tend to get is centred around our lgbt identities. Whenever I see it it tends to be anti-black, and usually confined to usernames. I do try to ban that whenever I see it, but I’m only one person, so I do rely on you to report things to me!

GENDER: 467 responses

https://imgur.com/GOMLltE
https://imgur.com/BY9eRfU
Now, this is the one I’ve had to go in and fuck with. This, and all the other charts, are basically just the raw data in visual form. The chart above is each individual response, allowing for those who selected multiple options. So, rather than counting every time someone selected “male”, then “nonbinary”, etc, it’s counting every time a person selected “male + cisgender,” “nonbinary + queer”, if that makes sense.
This chart here is the one I’ve fucked with, that just has the amount of times an option was selected.
https://imgur.com/ejdAKm9
I basically simplified the data here. Whenever someone said something like unsure, unknown, etc, this was put under “questioning”. The “other” responses are the only ones that received significant editing. These were long-form responses that could not be parsed into simple answers, so here they are in their entirety.
  • “Something like that lol”
  • “I don’t have one of these ‘gender identities’ everyone keeps talking about”
  • “Lol i’m absolutely fucked and i have no idea”
  • “What is this ‘gender’ you speak of”
  • “My sex is female”
Now, I could probably have parsed them into other categories, but honestly I thought this was more entertaining.
Some important things to remember when reading this data! * I collected it pretty poorly. I wasn’t aware of how google would collate it and i done goofed a bit. Take it with a pinch of salt. * once i “simplified” the data to look at how many times each option was selected, I ended up with almost 800 pieces of data. You’ll recall that only 467 people responded to the survey, so there is significant overlap. This is why I'm showing you two versions. The crossover is not fully clear, and there’s probably ways I could process this data better, but i’m gonna be real with y'all it’s a lot to wade through and I'm honestly just bad at this * This question allowed people to choose as many or as few labels as they wanted. Some people listed their gender as just “transgender” with no other qualifiers, for example. Therefore this data should be treated as only a partial picture of the gender demographics of this subreddit

PRONOUNS: 464 responses

https://imgur.com/lsP8661
Again, I arguably messed up on the collection of results here, BUT, I do think it’s very interesting to see the combinations of pronouns people use. For example, I think it’s cool to see that, among those who use they/them pronouns
  • 25 respondents use they/them as their only pronouns
  • 31 use he/him and they/them
  • 30 use she/her and they/them
Now obviously it’s gonna be difficult to argue for these results to be generalised to the population at large, but this does support what I’ve seen anecdotally for a while; neutral pronouns are often used alongside non-neutral pronouns. We might not have seen this if I had been a better researcher.
Here is the version with my own editing, simplification, and parsing of “other” results:
https://imgur.com/6sR4w3U
Other results are as follows, presented without comment
  • ”A variety of neopronouns”
  • ”Whatever is right in the moment”
  • ”in the closet for everyone except online friends”
  • ”any pronouns”
  • ”well i would use those pronouns if i was out or if anyone respected them lmao help me”
  • ”any/all”
  • ”the normal ones”
  • ”All? IDK it’s been a very confusing time”
  • ”he/him among general public, they/them among close friends but out in public, would like to use she/her but only when out and fully transitioned”
  • ”I don't know what this means”
Among neopronoun usage, we have specific examples of: * ve/ver * it/its
If we put this alongside the “other” responses that indicate neopronoun usage, we can say that 5 of our respondents use, or are comfortable using, neopronouns.
I think this is an interesting point to highlight, because common transphobe rhetoric is that people are using a “confusing” variety of pronouns. We have a generally trans-friendly sub (at least I hope so), and out of 464 respondents to this question, only 5 people indicated neopronoun usage. Could it be that this line of thinking, that people are using confusing newfangled pronouns, is just an uninformed scream from the ignorant?

SEXUALITY: 467 responses

https://imgur.com/CXVxEKc
Again, raw data. For this one I don’t feel it’s super necessary to go in and parse out who picked multiple things, because the data here seems kinda straightforward, if you’ll pardon the pun.
We have a lot of bi and pan people here. Again, it’s difficult to argue for the generalisation of these results, but this does support evidence of bisexual people making up the majority of the LGBT community. If we compare this to the by now well known findings from the Kinsey institute, this does support the belief that most people are likely neither a Kinsey 1 or a Kinsey 6, but somewhere in the middle. It’s not directly comparable because I didn’t use the same metrics, but it’s interesting to think about.
I also think it’s interesting to see so many straight respondents. Of course, this could just be trans people who are straight, but I know from the comments I’ve received that some people who responded are totally non-LGBT, just allies.
Also, shoutouts to “an absolute mess” and “just desperate for love”. Same, babes.

EDUCATION: 461 responses

There were enough “other” responses that I felt like I needed to go in and take those out, so here’s the raw data before I did that.
https://imgur.com/eguYGeK
And here is the simplified version
https://imgur.com/DZClNVV
Here are the “Other” responses
  • have not completed high forms of education
  • IDK not american
  • still studying
  • middle school (x4)
  • wasn't allowed to go to school by parents, currently studying for high school entrance exam
  • TAFE Diploma
  • 2nd year degree
  • gray
  • in 5th year of phd but no master's earned on the way
  • professional degree (Juris Doctor)
  • certificate of achievement, 1yr college
  • What’s a diploma
My favourite response is “IDK not american”. As we all know, education only exists in America.
Anyway, this pretty much tracks along the age demographics. With a population mostly aged between 13-24, it makes sense that the majority are high school or college educated.
Of course, it should be kept in mind that not everybody’s education is a linear or traditional experience, and won’t completely track with our age demographics.
Shoutouts to the 3-4 people with PhDs tho, mad respect.
And that wraps up our demographics section! Onto some of the cool shit.

PERSONAL LIFE SECTION

POLITICAL ALIGNMENT: 477/467

https://imgur.com/TUQNBVJ
Here’s the raw data. As you can see, there’s a lot of write-in responses. If you’ve spent any time hanging out on this subreddit, I don’t think it’s any shock to see how overwhelmingly left-leaning we are. I think this sort of goes with the territory of being an LGBT subreddit though, we do tend to develop liberal politics as an attempt to avoid homophobia and transphobia, and then from there it’s easy to fall into leftist politics, especially on places like Reddit.
Simplified data: https://imgur.com/isja5Kc
Other responses:
  • Don’t have these words in AUS
  • I have a hard time understanding all the different words, but I know I’m the opposite of Donald Trump
  • LibCenter
  • anarcho-communist
  • social libertarian
  • Hard to say since these terms mean slightly different things in different places/political climates
  • Whoever isn't a racist bigot
  • slutty sjw whos ready to bust a fat nut and shoot capitalists
  • angry *Governmental axis: libertarian. Economic axis: centrist. Social axis: progressive
  • I don't have a strict political alignment, I just think that every politician can have good ideas whatever their alignment is
  • I vote based on the current goals of each party
  • regulated markets, welfare capitalism, taco trucks on every corner. thank you for coming to my ted talk.
  • Whatever is Civil Rights
  • leftish antiauthoritarian
  • no one changes anything but rich mens pocket books
  • Progressive

We’re clearly a very left-leaning subreddit here. I think it’s interesting that out of a total of 447 responses, only 9 disclosed that they were on the right-hand side of the political spectrum. Is this because only 4% of people round these parts are on the right, or is due to an unwillingness to identify with conservative politics, even on an anonymous survey? Difficult to know for sure. Interesting data tho amirite.
Also whoever answered “slutty sjw whos ready to bust a fat nut”, same girl

RELIGION 460/467

Raw data: https://imgur.com/oQQWZH9
Again, a fuckfest here, but even before we go in and parse things out we can see that 336/460 indicate atheist or agnostic beliefs. This sort of goes along with my hypothesis/unscientific belief that a majority of LGBT people are non-religious, or will find religion themselves later on. I personally would love to do research on the prevalence of found religion in later life, especially pagan/wiccan type beliefs, in LGBT people. I think a lot of us do really desire that sort of connection to spirituality, but can’t always get it from the religions we were raised in. This is from my perspective as a western white person raised around christian/catholic beliefs; I know there’s differences with, for example, Judaism, where it’s fully baked into the culture to question and argue with your own beliefs, so I know there’s a hell of a lot of cultural bias going into this assumption.
Simplified data
https://imgur.com/FimSsoh
I’ve kept Atheist/agnostic as separate categories, grouped the different Satanism responses, and again created an “other” category.
Other responses:
  • Both Christian and agnostic
  • Dragons
  • exmormon
  • I don't believe in a conscious force making decisions, but there is some sort of force underlying the physical world
  • idk man. dudeism?
  • Its a mix
  • Meh
  • None (not explicitly atheist or agnostic, just...ehhhhh)
  • Unitarian Universalist
  • Science Christian
Given that this is Reddit, I’m not surprised by the high amount of atheist/agnostic responses, given that the site still has a strong legacy left behind by the glory days of /atheist. With this bias in mind, I do still think this presents a compelling basis for further research on the religious affiliations of LGBT people.

RELATIONSHIP STATUS 465/467

https://imgur.com/vcrZae3
This one actually didn’t require much fucking with, so I’ve just presented the gently simplified data.
Other responses
  • In a queer-platonic relationship
  • I walk a lonley road, the only one that i have ever known.
  • I’m not really sure rn
  • It’s complicated
  • In a polyamorous relationship
  • I have a domme
  • Polyamorous
  • On a crash course to divorce :(
Wow we’re a single lot aren’t we
Honestly I think this correlates with the age demographics. If I were a better data analyst I’d go in and confirm this with the data, but I’m not, so I won’t. Knowing that we have a lot of younger people, who are more likely to have either no relationship or a frequently changing/unstable relationship status, this kinda seems about right. It would be interesting though to compare this with relationship data from other LGBT communities. I think we all know the struggles of finding available partners, especially when you are, as the data suggests, in high school or college. It’d be interesting to see if the high rate of single people here is due to a desire to seek out other LGBT people in order to gain a sense of community as well. Maybe LGBT people in a relationship feel they already have enough of a sense of community and belonging and are therefore less likely to seek out LGBT spaces online. That’ll require some good qualitative data tho which is time consuming. Could be really cool tho.

THOUGHTS ON TERFS 463/467

Raw data: https://imgur.com/CQ2hSu4
This was a big question. There’s a lot of write-in responses here, so I’ll go through those.
Simplified data
https://imgur.com/YwNUYsR
Other results, presented without comment
  • accept everyone or get the fuck out
  • Confused
  • Fuck TERFs
  • Fuck TERFs
  • Fuck TERFs
  • Fuck TERFs
  • Fuck TERFs seriously
  • Fuck them with the rustiest rake you can find
  • Hate them
  • [Dislike] However, I do not condone jokes of violence against Terfs
  • I don't even know what that is.
  • I don't know or care what that means
  • I hate them so god damned much even the mention of the word terf makes me wanna punch a *wall then vomit.
  • I have never heard of this
  • I have no idea who they are
  • Idk bout them
  • liquidate them
  • Never heard of them
  • Not sure exactly what that means but if I understand it right I dislike them because I support transgender people
  • punch them
  • strongly dislike is not enough
  • [just a transphobic pro-terf comment]
  • strongly dislike isn't strong enough.
  • TERF is a slur lol
  • terfs r trash
  • They can go to hell
  • They have no place
  • Too little experience with them to form a meaningful opinion
  • we should set them on fire
  • trans rights babey
I think this is a pretty conclusive result. Of the 29 “other” responses, 20 of them indicate Dislike to Strongly Dislike. 5 respondents said Strongly Like, and 1 said Like. These respondents were the only ones who also put in positive “other” responses. 82% of responses were Strongly Dislike.
This is honestly going to inform my moderation style. I always remove outwardly transphobic comments, especially if they mirror the “rational people” comment in the responses above. However, seeing such a strong dislike of TERFs will likely mean I’ll remove more comments that are gently TERFy but not as explicit.
I do want to reiterate, this is a feminist space. I personally am a strong feminist. I hold some more radical feminist views. I also believe trans women are women, they have a place in the feminist movement, and in women’s spaces. You can absolutely be a trans INCLUSIVE radical feminist. Feminism is almost useless without intersectionality. Trans people are valid and welcomed here. Transphobia will never be tolerated here. Not up for debate.

THOUGHTS ON TRANSMEDICALISTS 460/467

Raw data:

Again, lots of write in responses. Same script as last time
Simplified data:
https://imgur.com/sQro5dq
Other results
  • At first glance, this notion makes sense to me, but I know to little about the issue to form a meaningful opinion
  • Dissagree w/ but not dislike as people
  • Don't know whether they're right or wrong since I'm not trans therefore can't confirm shit
  • Fuck truscum
  • Fuck truscum.
  • I can understand where they're coming from, but i think it's a harmful ideology all the same
  • I don't agree transition is necessary, since sometimes staying in the closet is the only way to survive. But dysphoria of some kind is necessary.
  • I don't understand how people can be trans if they've never experienced Dysphoria. Not being a dick, i just can't find an explaination.
  • I get where they're coming from
  • I have no opinion. If somebody says they're trans, all i want are their preferred pronouns.
  • I haven't heard about this before, I'd have to read up on it before giving an opinion!
  • I just need to shout about the exclusionary nature of the stance
  • I think dysphoria is necessary, but not medically transitioning
  • I’d err on the side of caution because it sounds like it could be ehhh. I don’t know enough about *the trans part of the LGBT+ community to properly answer this one
  • I’m not sure about them yet
  • It isnt nessacsry but many people do experience it
  • N/A
  • Neutral as long as they aren’t excessively pushy or rude about it.
  • New to this concept tbh
  • No opinion
  • Non-binary trans is still trans.
  • Not enough reading or research done on my part to have an informed opinion
  • Not familiar with this topic enough to say
  • punch them too
  • Therapists should treat it
  • There is background to their points but their attitude stunts progress for all trans people
  • they're very flammable too
  • trans people are trans regardless of what gender affirmations, if any, they choose to undergo. ❤️
  • trans rights babey
  • uncle terfs, more or less.
  • Unknown
  • wanting to be a different gender = gender dysphoria, so 90% of the time transmedicalism is just *pointless gatekeeping
This is the one I definitely needed trans people’s opinions on. I am cis-ish (androgynous butchy lesbian who occasionally likes a cheeky they/them pronoun but is for all intents and purposes a woman/dyke) and so feel entirely unqualified to weigh in and decide which side of the issue is “correct”.
  • 56.2% of responses indicate either Dislike or Strongly Dislike transmedicalists
  • Of the “other” responses, 15/29 indicate a dislike or disagreement with transmedicalist ideology
  • There is a large amount of “neutral” or “no opinion” responses. I can assume a lot of these are from cis people who, like me, feel unqualified to weigh in.
This is also likely to inform my moderation style somewhat. Again, I always remove blatant transphobia when I see it, and this includes anybody stating that nonbinary people are not valid, not real, etc. From these results, I’m going to assume this is the right move, and continue with this strategy.
I personally lean towards not believing in transmedicalism. Some of this may very well stem from my feminist views, but I generally think gender is extremely fluid, and that labels are only worth what the individual believes they represent. If any of you have an understanding of sociology, I tend towards a Weberian/symbolic interactionist approach towards labels in general. Therefore I believe whatever a person identifies as is probably the right identity for them, regardless of what I may think of it. This isn’t necessarily relevant to your understanding of the survey, but it may be relevant to your understanding of my moderation actions.
That wraps up this section! This was a long one, thanks for sticking with us <3

ME_IRLGBT OPINIONS

THOUGHTS ON THE SUBREDDIT 457/467

https://imgur.com/VUwfXtq
Finally, some data i don’t need to fuck around with. Note to self, do more ratings like this.
Obviously as a mod I’m happy to see that opinions trend above 5 here. The average score we’re getting here is 7.87 (2dp) and honestly, I’m down. If that was a movie on IMDB, that shit would be a pretty well-received movie. The most frequent response here is 8/10, and most responses are between 7-10, which tells me people generally enjoy hanging out here. I know there’s always a strong chance for bias here, because the people who are likely to respond to a kinda long survey for a subreddit are likely to be people who either really enjoy it, or really don’t. However, even with that bias, I’m gonna just take the W if that’s cool with you.

THOUGHTS ON MODERATION 445/467

https://imgur.com/pmkKyuC
Slightly lower trend than overall subreddit opinions, but the average is almost the same at 7.73 (2dp).
Since sending out this survey I have made some slight tweaks to my moderation style, as well as making some additions to the automoderator. We’ll chat about that later. I’m glad the overall trend here is positive though; I don’t want this to be a place where you all just end up resenting me.

DO WE NEED MORE MODS? 428/467

https://imgur.com/gwZuKtM
Other responses:
  • 🤷
  • don’t care
  • I don't know. I'm new to Reddit
  • i dont have a reddit account, and i very rarely check comments. I dont think i'm the best person to answer this.
  • I dont pay attention enough to say
  • I just discovered this subreddit like yesterday so I don't really know
  • I think we need mods who do more than just let people police the sub themselves. We may only need a new mod if the current mods don’t change how they mod. Respond to reports is what I’m saying (I don’t see almost any removed comments ever)
  • Idk
  • idk i just enjoy the memes
  • idk im just lurking here
  • Idk. How many moderators do you have?
  • if they're good moderators
  • maybe? i think a little more mod participation would be cool. just seeing admins in comments laughing and joking along with us, and sharing in the memes. i enjoy the hands-off approach but that doesn't mean i don't ever wanna see more mods chilling out and sorta like.,..... making their presence known and joining in on the fun!!! yknow it makes it feel safer
  • no idea tbh but it seems to be running ok
So the general answer here is that we maybe need more mods. Far more people said no than said yes.
Personal interpretation is that people may have felt more comfortable answering “maybe” than answering “yes”. I know that having one active mod for a 90k subreddit is not usual, and by now most subreddits will have gotten a couple more people in. I won’t speak for parlayv but, if you think i’m hands-off, she’s like, not even got hands. Hands not on this plane. We did create the subreddit together (IIRC I came up with the name and she was like “omg that needs to be a subreddit” and then, all of a sudden, it was) but I’m the one who pretty much runs it. I don’t think she’d take issue with me saying that. She’s too busy playing runescape and smoking weed anyway lmao
So, given the general results, I will look at bringing more mods on. I’ll probably pull from people I know first, and if that doesn’t work, may open up applications later. If this happens you’ll all know about it.
I’ll address some of the comments at the very end. Your concerns are not going unnoticed!

THOUGHTS ON RESEARCHERS 459/467

https://imgur.com/Px4XqGQ
Another very similar score, but this time the most frequent response by far is a 10. Average score is 7.84
This one was kinda important for me. I made the decision to allow researchers to post their surveys here. Full disclosure, when researchers come to me in modmail, my key concern is that they’ve followed all ethical procedures. So far, every single one has been done through a university in an official capacity, which means they have to prove they’ve gone through the ethics of their work and it’s been approved before they can even start researching. Whenever I’ve checked them out they seem completely fine, and I’ve so far not received any complaints, which makes me feel good.
I personally believe research is incredibly important for us to understand ourselves, as well as other people. I’m obviously biased as hell here because I’m a social sciences student but the whole reason I’m interested in this field is the benefits I believe it can bring to us. So if it’s cool with you all, I’m going to take this result as support for research posts. For now I don’t foresee any issues with frequency but we’ll revisit this if that becomes a problem. I’d like to give you all a sincere thank you for your positive reception to these posts <3

SHOULD WE BAN TERFS OR TRANSMEDICALISTS? 461/467

This question specified “regardless of rulebreaking”, meaning should they be banned on sight if they say they identify as either a TERF or a transmedicalist. I also meant if they posted in TERF or transmedicalist subreddits, but I didn’t specify this, so I won’t use that in my analysis of this data.
https://imgur.com/o1fevKC
Other responses
  • Allow them only if they don't say anything transphobic on me_irlgbt
  • ban 'em when they post inflammatory stuff to bait responses
  • allow transmeds to flair their posts/create separate sub
  • only ban Transmedicalists if they’re being dicks about it
  • don't know enough about transmedicalists to say
  • Ban transmedicalists, do not ban TERFs
  • Definitely ban TERFs, I just don't really know much about trans medicalists, so I feel weird making a definitive statement about them.
  • Definitely ban TERFs. I’m neutral on transmedicalists
  • Forum should not be allowed to become a hostile environment. They can easily do that.
  • I don't know the context behind transmedicalists but if they're anything like terfs then yes ban them
  • I think a distinction must be made between hate and ignorance. Obvious hate should naturally be answered with a ban, but rule-breaking content arising from possible ignorance should be met with a removal, private warning and, most importantly, directing the poster toward resources to educate themselves.
  • I think there is more ground to talk with transmedicalists but that I would prefer not to deal with them. TERFs should be banned regardless of circumstance.
  • I’m not sure how i feel about just “banning” people but i disagree with them both
  • if being mean
  • If making people uncomfortable
  • If they are strongly voicing there options, even in other sub, that may be harmful.
  • Keep them on a shorter leash
  • Maybe? Or at least make posting that stuff against the rules
  • No opinion
  • Only ban when breaking rules, but dismissing trans women & gnc/nb trans peeps should be against the rules
  • Only if they are putting forth their beliefs in a way to claim that people are not valid.
  • Still don't know anything about the transmedicalists but ban the terfs
  • TERFs have no rights and should go. Transmedicalists are... Kinda difficult? I used to consider myself trans and sorta get where they're coming from. I think it's just a generational issue? I don't think they should be banned outright, like TERFs should, but it should be made very clear that MeIRLGBT isn't the place to discuss that
  • Yeah, but only if you are sure they are terfs/transmed
  • yes, because they're harmful to trans communities and this subreddit should be safe.
Again, a generally anti-terf attitude, which is expected from previous questions.
Once again, this is mostly to inform my moderation style. I am hesitant to ban people because I don’t want to be seen as a powertripping mod out to get everybody. These results, alongside the other terf/transmed ones, are kind of encouraging me to take a slightly heavier hand than I currently am. Again, some specific responses at the end!

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE LESS OF? 75/467

  • MYSELF
  • i hope the rest of your day is the best of your day.
Okay to the people who said they want less of themselves and less gay shit you are in the wholeass wrong place are you okay
Reposts seem to be a common issue. Could you lot do me a favour and post in the comments what you think are common reposts? I come on and browse the sub but I really rely on things you report to me, so I don’t always see common reposts.
As far as specific content you don’t like, I’m afraid that’s gonna be a self-directed thing for yall. Downvote the non-rulebreaking content you don’t like and hopefully people will get the message!
Lol @ the one person who said less surveys. Ur in one. Cant stop wont stop x

ANYTHING ELSE TO ADD?

ily, thank you, etc
This shit sweet as hell thank you for taking the time to add it in at the end ily

Hi
Hi. how u doin
I am a gay
Absolutely. We love that for you.
[bee movie script]
Hi. no. dislike.
Comrades! You have nothing to lose but your chains!
There’s like 5 of you that said this and i love it
imagine being sega and not working towards creating and publishing a new jet set radio future game; absolutely criminal
Imagine being sega. Can’t relate
Perhaps a link in the side bar we can click to escape the subreddit, especially on mobile if possible.
Honestly not a bad idea. I’ll look into this.
Please just add the QA to the name. It’s 2 letters
I’m sorry, i can’t change the subreddit name. I’ll add it to the sidebar tho <3
Sexual attraction is bourgeois
Idk what this means but it is now one of the central tenets of my faith
Thanks for all the “other” options
You’re welcome it made like, 100x more work for me, but i kinda like that we have a smidge of qualitative data alongside all the quantitative shit.
Thanks for letting me participate despite my non LGBT status
Thanks for being chill!
You people need to calm down. I can sense that this energy primarily comes from North America, so I will explain. The level of discrimination and the lack of basic human rights are so extreme, people cannot stand it anymore even if they are not fully aware of these subconscious vibes, so they need to pull extremely in the other direction to make up for this. And hence you have this kind of subculture that emerges as result. The problem is that, you people are as bad as the other end of the problem because you're as extreme, and it translates into over the top aggression and people so insanely touchy they see an attack in absolutely everything, even if they are not being attacked. Become aware of these energies, and chill.
Gurl are you like okay? Do you need a lie down? Some fruit snacks? Everything okay at home?

ADDRESSING COMMENTS

“I think we need mods who do more than just let people police the sub themselves. We may only need a new mod if the current mods don’t change how they mod. Respond to reports is what I’m saying (I don’t see almost any removed comments ever)”
I’m gonna hold my hands up here, I have generally sucked ass at this. I rely almost completely on you lot reporting things to me, but for the longest time I had a big ol mod queue that was just overwhelming to look at. I’ve made changes to this in the past few weeks, including
*expanding automod scripts. Automod now deletes certain slurs automatically, as well as any comment that might be mentioning or encouraging suicide. This is a big help because obviously trolls will rely on their old faithful slurs. I was hesitant to do this because I think we all have a right to slur reclamation, but I think the benefits outweigh that right now. *I got a fancy new mod plugin! It’s called toolbox, and basically just tells me whenever a new post is made so I can approve it or not, and it tells me when I have new reports. It’s made the whole experience less stressful *I spent a day addressing all the shit in the queue. The subreddit used to be like, full anarchy, so there were reports going back 2 years. Again, I take responsibility for that. I’ve been a shitty mod and I am addressing that.
I hope these changes help address those concerns.
” i think a little more mod participation would be cool. just seeing admins in comments laughing and joking along with us, and sharing in the memes”
I’ve honestly been thinking about this comment for a while. I try to avoid posting here because, again, I’ve seen a lot of criticism of mods who participate too much in their own subs, especially when they distinguish their posts. I don’t wanna look like a dick, yknow? But I like this comment and I’m gonna try and just hang out with you lot more <3
Mod posts for awareness days (ie bisexuality awareness, TDOR, etc)
I kinda think this idea slaps. Does anybody have a calendar of important LGBT dates? I think we could tie this into the other comment about challenges for themed memes, where appropriate.
Clarity as to what this neat little subreddit is about
Me_irlgbt is a queer shitposting subreddit. It’s generally for memes and queer fuckery. Not selfies. That’s about it.
Support threads/posts
Okay, so, the reason I’m not going to do this is because I feel that if I post a thread for support, I then have a duty of care to anybody who posts in it. I do not have the capability, time, or knowledge to provide that duty of care, so I feel it would be strongly unethical to do this, regardless of how good the intentions are. I think it’s a well-meaning idea, I just wanted to clarify why I’m personally not comfortable with it.
Not everybody in me_irlgbt is gay. Can we have more inclusivity?
When I use “gay” on this subreddit, especially if I’m referring to the general mass of users, I wholeheartedly mean it in a community way. Like, “we, the gays” as contrapoints once said. You are welcome here. This isn’t the only response along these lines, so I will keep it in mind when making changes.
And we’re done! Holy shit that was a long post. This has taken me 6 days to edit. Again, reiterating from the top, I’m not an adept researchedata analyst, so I’m sure many people could’ve done a MUCH better job looking at these results, but I think this will do for now.
Thank you so much to everybody who responded. It’s been really interesting for me to have a look at this, and pretty cool to get to fuck around with all this data. Thank you ilysm <3

TL;DR

  • The population on this subreddit trends young, mostly 18-24
  • Most people live in the US
  • Most people are white
  • We have slightly more male-identified people than female, but not significantly so.
  • Roughly a quarter of respondents are trans-identified.
  • Most people use she/her or he/him pronouns. Around 18% use they/them, with the rest “other” or neopronouns.
  • About 60% of the people here identify as bisexual or pansexual, 17% lesbian, 16% gay, 17% asexual. These responses do overlap with many people using multiple labels for themselves.
  • mostly high school or college educated, which makes sense with the age demographics
  • overwhelmingly left-leaning politically
  • generally positive feelings towards the subreddit/mods
  • mostly atheist/agnostic religious views
  • 74% of respondents are single/not in a relationship.
  • 88% of respondents do not like TERFs
  • about half of respondents do not like transmedicalists, but 28% are neutral
  • 60% of respondents think we maybe need more mods
  • other responses just need to be read lol

2019.12.02 22:05 FlyingSpy Destiny Lore Summary III: Notable Names, Past and Present

BEFORE THE POST I'D LIKE TO CALL ATTENTION TO SOMETHING THAT HAS BUGGED ME SINCE DAY 1 ON THIS SUBREDDIT. RULE 2 IN THE SIDEBAR SAYS "NO MEMES OF FANFICTION" WHERE IT SHOULD SAY "NO MEMES OR FANFICTION"
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. MODS PLS FIX.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sup.
The name's Flyingspy. Or Lucille-13, whichever you prefer.
The point of this series is to give a quick starting point for people wanting to get into the lore of Destiny. Up next is The Vex.
Note: Whenever I say "you," I mean the canonical character of "The Guardian" who you play as in-game. In the lore, YOUR SPECIFIC GUARDIAN was the one who made all those accomplishments from my first post, even if you've never done any raids or anything like that in-game.
Note 1.5: there is a difference between gameplay and lore. If gameplay was as insane as the lore, it would be the Mayhem Crucible playlist, but in every activity, and Hive Knights would be much scarier.
Note 2: When I talk about the Ishtar Collective, I usually mean the lore website and not the in-game location.
Without further ado, here's the rundown.


As The Guardian, you've made many enemies. However, you have also become acquainted with powerful allies, many of which are legends in their own right. Here's a somewhat comprehensive list.

The Last City's government is run by THE CONSENSUS, a council of representatives from the three major FACTIONS as well as the three VANGUARD LEADERS, one for each class. There's also THE SPEAKER, but he's hella dead so...

- The current Warlock Vanguard is IKORA REY, a human slowva bomb voidwalker. She is one of the few guardians to defeat Lord Shaxx in the Crucible.
- The current Titan Vanguard is COMMANDER ZAVALA, an AWOKEN bubble shield sentinel. He is a much-needed voice of reason in a world of crazy dancing guardians.
- Due to the untimely demise of Cayde-6, the Hunter Vanguard position is currently empty. Depending on who you ask, the most likely candidate is one of the following:
...anyway, there's a lot of debate on who the next Hunter Vanguard will be.

The three major factions in the City are DEAD ORBIT, NEW MONARCHY, and FUTURE WAR CULT.
- Dead Orbit believes that the Earth is doomed, and the only way for humanity to survive is to leave the system and find a new home. They are led by ARACH JALAL. Dead Orbit does a lot of business in the Reef and the outer edges of the sol system.
- New Monarchy wishes to establish a New Monarchy (shocking I know) governed by EXECUTOR HIDEO. Not Executioner, Executor.
Future War Cult (FWC) is led by the mysterious LAKSHIMI-3. FWC believes that War is a constant of the universe, and that to survive, we must prepare for it. They also have access to a machine that can somewhat predict the future, but I don't know if it is still in operation.

YOU ALL KNOW LORD SHAXX BY NOW. HE IS THE CRUCIBLE. ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL GUARDIANS TO EVER EXIST. HERO OF TWILIGHT GAP. GIVER OF OVERPOWERED PINNACLE WEAPONS. FUN FACT: DUE TO PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO HIGH-CALIBRE WEAPONS, LORD SHAXX HAS GONE SLIGHTLY DEAF AND HAS TO SHOUT TO HEAR HIMSELF.
OKAY THAT LAST PART ISN'T ACTUALLY TRUE, BUT IT SOUNDS LEGIT AND IT GIVES AN EXPLANATION FOR WHY HE SHOUTS ALL THE TIME.

Another face you may see around the Tower sometimes is LORD SALADIN. Saladin, affectionately referred to as "salad man" by guardians as a whole, is one of two remaining IRON LORDS. More on them in a later post, but for now, let's just say that the first people brought back by Ghosts weren't the nicest people, and it took a literal Guardian army to stop them.

THE DRIFTER will get his own post. Someday. Probably. Maybe. For now, he's that creepy uncle that somehow hasn't gotten arrested yet, despite literally murdering multiple people in cold blood.

BANSHEE-44 is everyone's favorite amnesiac robot gunsmith. He is not a Guardian. Like humans, exos deteriorate as they age, especially in regards to memory.

SURAYA HAWTHORNE (usually just called Hawthorne) is a non-guardian who played a major part in retaking the city during the Red War. Don't underestimate her just because she doesn't have a Ghost; She was one of seven people Cayde thought would be the most likely to kill him. The others being Ikora, Zavala, Eris Morn, Taniks the Scarred, Marcus Ren, and you, The Guardian.

TESS EVERIS is the virtual manifestation of Triple-A Game Publishing. You give her real-world money in exchange for gun skins and annoying neon shaders. Seriously, who at Bungie thought that Dawn and Dusk looked anywhere close to good??? Notably, sent an entire shipment back to Fenchurch. Fun fact about Fenchurch: he claims to have been inside the Traveler, and says it smells like vanilla. Not even joking about that. Vanilla.

KADI 55-40 is the Tower's Postmaster, and arguably the most powerful being in existence. Drop a blue engram in the Ascendant Realm by accident? Kadi's got it. Run out of time before you can pick up your modulus reports? Kadi's got it. Don't have space for another three thousand Vex Components? Kadi's got it.

AMANDA HOLLIDAY is number 2 on the list of best destiny waifus, and the most useless NPC in the entire game. I've visited Saladin more than Holliday, and Saladin is only around for like a week out of every month. New players, visit her and get the 3 campaigns. Do The Red War, then Curse of Osiris, then Warmind.

Ada-1 is the Black Armory Curator, and #1 best waifu. You can't change my mind, so don't even try. NEW PLAYERS, VISIT HER AND DO THE QUEST. YOU GET AN AMAZING MACHINE GUN AS A REWARD, AND YOU CAN GET SOME OF THE BEST WEAPONS IN THE GAME FROM HER ONCE YOU FINISH THE QUEST.

BENEDICT 99-40 is a sweeper robot who has been possessed by the Space Turtles' psychic ruler, Emperor Calus. More on him in the Cabal post, coming soonTM

And last but certainly not least (because Tess still exists lmao) is MASTER RAHOOL, the CRYPTARCH. Cryptarchs deal in the study of historical artifacts and the decryption of ENGRAM, the fifth state of matter. Now I know what you might be thinking: "BUT u/FLYINGSPY, THERE ARE ALREADY 5 STATES OF MATTER DISCOVERED!!!!!1!!one!!!" and to that I say "shhhhhhh. it's a video game. let them have this."

Old Legends and New Allies ft. Teleporting Fire Wizard, Exo Doomguy, Skynet, Waifus 3 through 8, & More!

In your journeys throughout the Sol System, you've met a cast of... interesting characters, to say the least.

DEVRIM KAY is a non-guardian who watches over the EUROPEAN DEAD ZONE (the Earth patrol zone). He's an expert shot, and possesses what seems to be the last No Land Beyond, which was an exotic sniper rifle in Destiny 1. The name Devrim Kay is a sort of title passed down by his family line, with "our" Devrim Kay being the ninth. He is happily married to his husband Marc, and they plan to adopt a son very soon, who they will name Devrim Kay the tenth.

DEPUTY COMMANDER SLOANE is a Titan stationed on... Titan. When are we getting Warlock and Hunter as patrol zones, Bungie??? Not much lore on her, as far as I know. There is literally more lore on Cayde's pet chicken Colonel than there is on Sloane.

FAILSAFE takes the spots of both #6 and #8 best waifus. She is a golden age AI assigned to the EXODUS BLACK colony ship that crashed on Nessus during the Collapse. She hid from the Vex and Fallen for centuries until Cayde-6 arrived during the Red War and blew her cover. The years have not been kind to her, and she frequently switches back and forth between helpful assistant and sarcastic pessimist. The former captain of Exodus Black, CAPTAIN JACOBSON, may have been converted into a Vex Harpy, but it's purposefully left unclear.

ASHER MIR is a pretentious Gensym Scribe who studies the Vex. In a failed Strike on THE PYRAMIDION, a massive Vex installation on IO, Asher's Ghost was compromised and his right arm was replaced with a vex construct. It is slowly spreading to the rest of his body, and he does not know if his ghost will be able to revive him when the Vex infection eventually kills him. He is friends with Eris Morn. Well, maybe friends isn't the right word, but the two are close.

ERIS MORN, CROTA'S BANE, is a Hunter who was part of the FIRST CROTA FIRETEAM, along with ERIANA-3, OMAR AGAH, VELL TARLOWE, SAI MOTA, and TOLAND THE SHATTERED. They all died. Kinda. Eris is still alive, Omar is a bug inside a machine gun, and Toland is a floating ball of cryptic bullshit. But none of them escaped unscathed. Eris lost her Ghost and her sight, and had to resort to AHAMKARA wishes. She now has the eyes of a Hive Acolyte, and has made it her goal to exterminate the Hive. She was the first to discover THE PYRAMID (Magic Space Dorito) on the Moon, and indirectly caused the rise of Nightmares across the system. Developed a bond with Asher Mir as a result of their "involuntary surgeries." #7 best waifu, in between Failsafe and Failsafe.

BROTHER VANCE is a fanatical fanboy of OSIRIS, former Warlock Vanguard and exiled scholar. In the running for the "Worst Character Development in History" award.

If you're reading this, comment Fighting Lion.

OSIRIS is a Warlock of legendary skill and power. During the Battle of Twilight Gap, it is said that he was in multiple places at once. After being exiled from the City for his divisive views on the Light and Dark. He believes that to fight something, you must first know its nature. This caused a divide in Guardians, and the Speaker ultimately chose to exile the Warlock. Osiris disappeared into the Infinite Forest on Mercury, a massive Vex simulation powered by the planet itself.

SAINT-14 was an Exo Titan and former Vanguard Commander. He saw the Fallen as the greatest threat to humanity in existence, even more than the Hive, the Vex, or the Cabal. He led a crusade against the four-armed creatures until the Battle of Six Fronts, when he learned of Osiris' whereabouts and set out to bring him back to the City. Saint-14 was like a son to the Speaker, and Osiris was his cousin. Inside the Forest, Saint-14 slaughtered so many Vex that the machines came to respect him. The Titan's Light was so strong, the Vex had to design and build a Hydra specifically tuned to his Light's frequency. Saint-14 killed that one too. However, the construct had done its job. Saint-14's Light was fading, and the Vex were closing in. The details of his last stand are unknown, but we do know that the Vex constructed a tomb for him, filled with the twisted, melted frames of countless Vex and guarded by the Reverent Mind, a massive Minotaur programmed to put up an invincible bubble shield and hide inside, punching anything that comes close. Due to Vex Time Travel ShenanigansTM, there is a solid possibility of meeting him again in the future. One massive hint toward this is there is a voice actor listed for the role of "Saint-14" on the Shadowkeep IMDB page. Another piece of evidence is the lore tab on his gun, Perfect Paradox, which says that we gave him the gun in the first place. The guardian he is talking about is you. He has seen your feats, and declares you greater than himself. Wow. Now that's a letter of recommendation.

Another mythical figure is ANA BRAY. During the Battle of Twilight Gap, her Golden Gun burned so bright it left pools of Light that are still there to this day. Arguably the most powerful Gunslinger in existence. After her sudden disappearance during Twilight Gap, Ana was thought to be dead. However, she was very much alive. She started looking into her past, who she was BEFORE her Ghost brought her back. This led her to discover the CLOVIS BRAY facility on Mars, which houses the main bunker of the WARMIND, RASPUTIN. She's also #4 waifu c:

Rasputin is a golden-age AI created to defend humanity from any and every threat. During the Collapse, Rasputin's core disconnected itself from the rest of the Warmind network, leaving parts of himself scattered around the system. During an expedition in the Cosmodrome in Old Russia, you reconnected Rasputin to his systems and helped him regain control of the WARSAT network. A warsat is a multi-purpose satellite designed and built by Rasputin himself. It can be anything from an orbital bombardment unit, to a probe, to a projectile with the force of an average-sized meteor.

The EXO STRANGER is, well, a stranger who is an Exo. Nobody knows who she really is, although the most popular theory is that she is ELSIE BRAY, Ana's sister. The Stranger helped you find your way into the Black Garden to destroy its dark heart, and then vanished. She appears to have some method of time travel.

MARA SOV is the first of the Awoken, and their current queen. She is a schemer, preferring complex plans to simple combat. However, if the situation requires it, Mara Sov can unleash the HARBINGERS, a fleet of magic artillery, to destroy her foes. She single-handedly destroyed Skolas' ketch, crippling his fleet. During the Taken War, she was killed by a Dark superweapon, but through the power of an artificial THRONE WORLD (basically if you have a Throne World, you can't die unless you are killed inside your own throne) she survived and eventually made her way back to our plane of existence.

PETRA VENJ, QUEEN'S WRATH (aka purple pirate lady aka waifu #3) is the closest thing Mara Sov has to a General. She commands all Awoken operations from THE DREAMING CITY, where she is perpetually trapped due to a time loop curse.


The First Ever Raid Troll

And now we come to one of the most enigmatic and interesting characters in all of fiction.
TOLAND, THE SHATTERED.
Throughout his life as a normal Guardian, Toland was obsessed with the Hive and their secrets. When Eriana-3 came to him for guidance on how to defeat CROTA, Toland enthusiastically agreed. Little did the others know, however, that it was never his intention to kill the Hive God. Toland wanted only to hear the DEATHSONG in person. Unfortunately for the rest of the fireteam, Toland had his wish granted. With no one to guide them, the brave guardians fell one by one.
However, just because Toland was killed, doesn't mean he died.
Toland now exists as a ball of Taken-looking energy that occasionally spouts helpful advice, but most of the time just acts like a prick.




And that's it, I think. Again, long post, but there are a LOT of semi-important characters, each with enough lore for their own post. The ones I REALLY feel I didn't get to explain well are:
Check out their Ishtar Collective pages for more lore on them, although I'll probably cover most of them at some point.

Thanks for reading, love you all <3
Up next is The Vex, and then The Hive and their history.

2019.09.05 11:22 Will989 Planet of the apes 1968 - Important back then and remains important today.

MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction). Total annihilation of everything we know and love if we passed the brink of Nuclear War. Planet of the apes (1968) gives us a warning that will probably remain obstinate as long as Nuclear weapons exist. Some say the Cold War died with fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, others say that it never died and is alive and well to this day. In the present day, we have North Korea, Iran and an improved but ambigious relationship between Russia and the western world. What would happen if a world leader decided to press the button? Watch this film and you may get an idea of what it would be like.
Although the message about Nuclear weapons is front and centre in this movie, there are many more pressing matters that this film tackles too. Slavery, religion vs science, supremacy of one being over another and equal opportunities. This film has something to say about all of the above, which makes it really ahead of it's time considering when it hit the screens.
So let's run through the Slavery narrative of the film: In order for this to make sense, you have to understand the culture of the ape society, the structures and it's social norms. Simply, apes are the superior beings in this world with the Gorillas as the soldiers, chimpanzees as the scientists and orangutans as the politicians. The gorillas mercilessly capture and detain the primitive behaving humans on horseback while some even end up getting shot. Why do they do it you ask? One could argue they do it purely for sport, they're overpopulated and it's good way to burn the calories. Besides, they're only puny little humans; nobody shall waste any time mourning they're imprisonment and inevitable death. Could there possibly be a more deeper rationale behind this? Dr. Zaius (Maurice Evans) could have revealed it in just one sentence towards the end of the film "The Forbidden Zone was once a paradise, your breed made a desert of it... ages ago!". This suggests that the ongoing enslavement and maltreatment of the human race stems from a deep mistrust or fear of humans. Should they become the dominant power in the world again, what might happen?
How could you possibly treat a group with such disdain and violence? You have to make them look like fiends, cockroaches and parasites because once you've succeeded in doing that, nobody feels any sympathy towards them. They then top it off by saying that Humans have always been inferior to Apes, therefore it's okay to treat them like that. It's now much easier for the apes to justify enslaving, killing or even gruesomely experimenting on the humans. The way the humans are treated by apes in this film has some parallels to slaves in the American south. People justified the slavery of African people with racist lies, arguing that black people were inherently inferior to white people among other things. This then leads us to our next issue...
Keeping what Dr. Zaius said in mind, we move onto our next topic: religion vs science. Dr. Zaius in this film has two major roles in the governance of the ape theocracy which are Minister of Science and Defender of the faith. He decides what is allowed to qualify as "science" while upholding the religious beliefs of the ape society. Two roles which to some extent cancel eachother out. Zira (Kim Hunter) and Cornelius (Roddy McDowall) are two chimpanzee scientists who each spend a lot of time researching human beings and once they meet Taylor (Charlton Heston), this kicks their scientific efforts into overdrive. Even to the point of proving some of their hypothesis's due to Taylor's seemingly remarkable abilities, which to them seems extraordinary for a human to be displaying such stuff. Zaius is clearly troubled by this and makes several attempts throughout the film to conceal these findings. When Taylor attempts to write his name in the dirt, Zaius scribbles it out. Landon (Robert Gunner) a comrade of Taylor ends up getting lobotomized - it's highly likely both Zaius was personally responsible for this and had done the deed after Landon began exhibiting behaviour similar to Taylor's. Zaius himself even goes as far as to threaten Taylor with castration and malicious experimental surgery. I'll quote to you the "first article of faith": "The almighty created Ape in his own image, that he gave him a soul and a mind, that he set him apart from the beasts of the jungle and made him the law of the primate."
What does this say about Dr. Zaius's? How can one defend the tenets of the sacred scrolls which is fundamental to Ape society and be a scientist digging to discover fact based truth? You can only do that if your religion is your science and your science is your religion. To borrow a quote from The REEL ANTAGONIST "For in Dr. Zaius’ eyes, religion is the true science." This does raise an interesting question about Dr. Zaius: are his intentions good? Is he just protecting Ape kind from themselves? Maybe he knew all about this long before Zira and Cornelius did. This actually raises a different debate with one side where you've got your Zira's and Cornelius's claiming there's no need to fear humans, while the other side where you've got your Zaius's claiming there's plenty of reason to be fearful of humans. (This will be linked below).
If you haven't noticed already, the apes believe that they were put on this earth to rule and to command the humans however they pleased. This then leads us to "supremacy of one being over another". The belief that apes are the superior race is enshrined in the Sacred scrolls and in Ape law, humans have no rights under Ape law". Think of it like a pyramid: chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans are on the top with humans at the bottom of the hierarchical pyramid. Think of Humans as the untermensch of ape society, just like how the jewish people were under Nazi rule. They are the most inferior and/or the least deserving of life.
As for the Equal opportunities theme of the film, i'm going to talk very specifically about the character of Dr. Zira (Kim Hunter). I'm going to try my hardest not to get too PC with the point i'm about to make. Dr. Zira is an animal psychologist chimpanzee in this film and studies the behaviours of humans. As scientists often do, they make hypothesis's and theories; in her case, she asserts that Humans have the potential to live their life's the way apes do. An assertion which is aggressively frowned upon. She dares to disagree with the prevailing narrative? Dares to disagree with her superiors? She even has the brass balls to disagree with the sacred scrolls!? How dare she! Even when her theories prove to be evidence based, she's still at risk of being tried for scientific heresy. A courageous and intelligent female scientist being held back by a bunch of old, aristocratic men? I shan't mention the word beginning with the letter "P" but what do you think about this? For a film made in the late 1960's, it seems pretty enlightened.
Taylor all along, believes he is on a different planet. He must be! Apes couldn't possible ever rule on earth. By and by this will lead to one of the most shocking and famous plot twists in the history of cinema. Taylor is smuggled out of the city by Zira and Cornelius where they later set up camp near a dig site where Cornelius has been digging. Inside the cave, Cornelius presents artifacts such as glasses, a heart valve and even a talking play doll. This hints at what follows next. Eventually, Taylor sets out on a horse with Nova (Linda Harrison) and travel along the sea shores. They stop when they find a giant, derelict and disintegrating statue. Taylor collapses on the ground once he realises that it's the statue of liberty. It all becomes clear. The world Taylor once knew has been annihilated by Nuclear war. An apocalypse he never witnessed. In that haunting final shot of the film, it paints a very bold picture of what would ensue should mankind resort to Nuclear warfare.
Was Dr. Zaius right all along? Honestly, can we blame him for fearing humans after learning that they destroyed the world? Something tells me Dr. Zaius deep down would love to be wrong about his perceptions of human kind. Gosh, if only it were that simple.
