Ep 14 - Not So Bright

2/25/2018
More
This week we talk about the new Netflix film 'Bright'. We were both really excited to watch this film and to see what a movie could do with the concept of 'Lord of the Rings' brought into the modern world. It's safe to say that we were disappointed. So this week we try our hands at world building. We discuss if it's racist to ride a centaur, slugs with faces and hippy elves. What did you think of the movie? Is there anything we missed or overlooked? How do you guys think this world could...

Can you survive this podcast if you drink every time we say the word 'luck'....probably not. Utopia, midtopia or dystopia?...
