    Yeah, I watched it too. I had pretty low expectations because of everything I'd heard. It's not bad. Its certainly somewhere in my top 5 modern urban fantasy buddy cop movies. The guy who played Jakoby did a good job, and the guy who played Will Smith was very good at being Will Smith.

    Though I agree with Zeek, it would make a more interesting miniseries. Preferably staring centaur cop

    It is like the took Skyrim and Grand Theft Auto and smashed them together into a movie.

    Then they sprinkled in some of The Fifth Element and Harry Potter.

    I liked it.

    My wife and I really enjoyed Bright. I likes the story. Seems like a great idea for a miniseries. I play D&D so it makes sense that I like it.

    If you have Amazon Prime there's a series much like Netflix's Black Mirror, it's called Phillip K. Dick's Electric Dreams.

    How is black mirror? I hear good things, but after watching the trailer I still can't get excited about starting it. Anyone have something to compare it to?

    Anyone tried watching Godless? It's supposed to be some kind of western, but I wasn't sure about it after reading the intro. A town populated only with women? How the heck would that work? Maybe it gives new meaning to the "wild, wild west"???? :O

    Godless is a mini series and is worth watching. I liked it.

    It's like a bunch of pulpy Asimov shorts, except they are mostly set in the current near future, and done very well.

    Loved Godless! I would also recommend Ozark, Punisher, Travelers, the list goes on. I think I watch more Netflix than I watch cable now...

    Don't know if anyone has mentioned Sandcastle - a great movie (not a show) about the CIMIC side of the current ME conflict. Well worth the time to watch.

    Punisher and Longmire are two of my all-time favorites!!!

    We have been watching Black Mirror and we like it a lot. Not every episode has been a winner but they are good. It reminds me of the old Twilight Zone episodes.

    I've been rewatching seasons 1 and 2 of The Last Kingdom for the last few weeks in anticipation of the announcement of season three. (So far, the producers have still not announced as of today (visited a web page dated TODAY) whether they will produce season 3 or cancel the show. I vote for season 3; good place to end lest they leave some details dangling.)

    But today I stumbled on one of those youtube videos of the top N (6 or 7) films that you should watch that were underrated. I'll pass on all but one -- the last one reviewed. Now I've watched the trailers (several) and am already hooked. I'm going to start watching it tonight, and take a break from Uhtred and team.

    It's one of those movies that has a good trailer. The movie isn't very good. I guess there aren't very many better movies in that setting that you havn't already seen though.

    The HBO series Rome was good, you might like to try that.

    Reuben is trying to get me hooked on Ozark but it's pretty dark.
