    Netflix Original: Bright



    On December 22, Netflix dropped their first major feature film. Adam Sandler travesties aside, Netflix has mostly produced TV shows and streamed other people's shows and films. And made a few lesser films. Bright represents a different tack. This was their attempt at a blockbuster hit. In a time where Star Wars- The Lost Jedi Empire Menace is ruling the theaters, Netflix isn't trying to compete there, it's offering something to compete with Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and other streaming services. Bright is a buddy cop movie that takes place in an alternate present world where, along with humans, there are elves, orcs, fairies, centaurs, dragons and other species. Will Smith plays Officer Daryl Ward and co-stars with Joel Edgerton, Ward's Orc partner.

    In my very humble opinion, the movie is entertaining enough, has decent enough special effects, and will get totally panned by the critics. It does try to do too much. Lord of the Rings meets Bad Boys on the End of Watch. With Will Smith movie witty dialog. The elves and the orcs are metaphors for different human races, and it's kinda obvious what they're doing. And, it's a little preachy. But in the end, you sat in your living room to watch and didn't pay $50 for 2 tickets, some popcorn and a couple small Cokes. In that light, it's pretty good.
