John tells Thomas to aim his musket with "both eyes open" which is actually a bad way to aim a gun as it's hard to line up your sights. However, firearms did not have rifling along the barrel back then, and even if you did aim perfectly with a smoothbore gun the bullet could still spin off path and easily miss a target less than 20 feet away. The fact that Thomas hit anything he was aiming at can be attributed only to luck. See more »

Mature love and great music
19 October 2004 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

Well when I watched Pocahontas back in 1995 I was only 12 years old, and I thought it was a nice movie, a bit too serious, but all in all a good movie. But now, almost ten years later I saw it again, and wow what a surprise I got... The movie is probably the only Disney movie with a REAL love story, the sneak around and tries to hide their love, and in the incredibly sad ending, they choose life over love (or something like that), which makes the whole thing mature and realistic. And the music, that wonderful music. "Colors of the wind" (fantastic singing by musical star Judy Kuhn) is probably one of the best Disney songs of all time. The other songs are great too. The only thing the film lacks is "classic" animation, these new things like; not seeing Pocahontas nose from the front, I dunno, I can't help thinking of this film with the animators (and style) from "The beauty and the beast". The voice acting is top notch by the way! I don't care that the movie is historicly incorrect, its just a damn good Disney film, that has crawled up to the top 5 Disney classics of all time in my book.
