    I am a full on Fantasy Nerd. The Heathen is named after a deity in a dice chucking setting. Takhisis if you must know. One day she will be old enough to get that, and I will have a bit of explaining to do. Thankfully she is her father's daughter.



    Bright is a new Will Smith film (I like Will Smith) that puts him as a cop partnered with an Orc as a 'diversity' hire. The film takes the entire setting for granted, if you watch it you just have to accept that Orcs are criminals and Elves rule the world. That is a plus for me. I don't want to spend an hour having the world explained to me when the film just rolls with it. The racial overtones are obvious, but done within taste and reason. Elves>Humans>Orcs>Faeries.



    It sucks as a buddy cop movie, it sucks as a fantasy movie, but if you watch it as a movie, it is pretty good and I really hope that the trilogy they are hoping to start goes forward.
