  • I think that the "Fairy Lives Don't Matter" scene probably was supposed to show a hatred of magical things. As this video points out, though, that doesn't really make sense. Fairies are just pests that humans have lived with deep into historical time. Beyond that, though...I mean, he really isn't generally that hateful toward what we'd see as fantasy creatures. He's not great, but with that as set-up, it feels like he should be godawful.

  • This movie reminds me of the shadowrun universe a little bit, which is a weird (but very good!) mishmash of fantasy and cyberpunk set in the real world (late 21st century). Paraphrasing a bit here: but basically, in the far past, magic existed, then it dissapeared, our known history happened, recently (2012?) Magic, including fantasy races (being human subspecies named meta-humans) reappeared, with real life animals turning into fantasy variants (Bearded dragons becoming basilisks, a few others I dont remember.)- The list goes on, it's probably one of the worlds with the deepest worldbuilding ever, despite only diverging from our world in 2012 (Not counting the whole, magic existed before our known history-thing.) Go look it up, good shit!

  • can we please talk about them being called RACES. Different races can interbreed, like Homo Sapiens did with Homo Neandertalensis. So where are all the half-elves, quarter-orcs and the likes? Max should've called them SPECIES instead. Though I see this a lot in fantasy so I can't blame him too much.

  • ok time for another round of, questions no one should be asking bit I still am. what are the full nine races? (humans, orcs elves, centaurs, dwarfs?) do the other racial groups have different ethnic groups like humans are clearly shown to have? like darkskined elves or paleskined orcs? (oversimplifying but whatever) can the different races crossbreed? if so would the results be more like a coydog (coyote + dog/wolf, who are fertile) or more like a mule (horse+donkey, who are infertile) if a non bright dies on touching a wand, and most brights are elves but not all elves are brights, would that not result in potentially a lot of dead elves? how do you test for a bright if you might potently kill anyone who is not? are wands the only way majic exists? if so who or what made them and how? if not how dose that other majic work, and is the wands only special due to their near reality bending power? Are elves the dominant race? are they dominant by population or by power (probably majic in this case) are fairies a race or an animal? if they are an animal are there a multitude of kinds of fairies (like are fairies a Broad category like rodents? or bird?) did the different racial groups develop in their own unique environments within their own "cradles of civilization" (like humans first developing in Mesopotamia while elves might have had their cradle of civilization near the rhine's river or orcs having their own near maybe the Nile or Niger River or something?) or did they all develop in the same area (if so why have they not competed each other out of existence at this point) were orcs part of the trans Atlantic slave trade? and the reason their culture is so similar to (stereotyped) African-American culture is because they were forced into a similar set of circumstances and formed a sort of co-opted hybrid culture? did slavery exist in this universe? how did the industrial revelation go? if majic is not only wand exclusive was it ever used or developed along with tec? are there other creatures we don't find in our world but would be perfectly normal in theirs, like dragons or multi headed dogs? what did the dark lord actuly do? beyond starting some kind of war. like war's bad but hardly enough to earn you a title of "Dark lord". are there plants that would seem magical and strange in our existence but are perfectly normal house plants in their world? natzies? world wars? what would they have fought for and how would be putting who in camps?(yikes) are some of the nine races native only to a specific continent (not to mention islands) like were there Native American orcs along with humans? do different places in the world call the different races different things like orcs are called orcs in the u.s.a but ogers in china and bogarts in the uk? That whole American thing (revelotion, westward expansion, Wild West, ect) are religions different depending on what race it came from? wtf is unblooded? and last but most importantly is shrek a historical figure or is it the same as for us and would that movie be considered racist?

  • I love "The Boys" but its world-building has similar problems. It's basically the modern world with superheroes slapped on top. But in that universe, real superheroes have been around since at least the 1940s, so it doesn't really make sense that things like Harry Potter would still exist because that world would seem tame if we know there are real people who can massacre thousands with a mere glance. There are other implications, but that's the one that sticks out to me. (But The Boys does such a good job of exploring the broader implications of super-powered individuals in the real world that I can easily forgive the fact that its in-world history is basically the same as our own.)

    Zachery AcuffZachery AcuffTháng trước
    • I think the same about the MCU but to a broader extent (actually any big universe that is an adaptation of a popular story set some time after said story appeared for the first time like BBC'S Sherlock) Tony Stark appeared in comics for the first time in 1963, him being a pastiche of Howard Hughes. In the MCU, Tony Stark as Iron Man appears for the first time in 2008, those are 45 years of no reference at all to not only Iron Man/Tony Stark, but also anything that may have been influenced by him. I'm not saying that some kid read those comics and when he grew up he got inspired to become the robotic engineer that gave us something like the first smartphone but even the tiniest influence could have a snowball effect. I still love the MCU for its world building but that is something that is always in the back of my mind

    • I think The Boys is in the same category as District 9 and Who Framed Roger Rabbit in that the human vs superhero relation is a main point of the story, as mentioned in this video. Also, it has the relatively recent divergence from our real history.

  • Before watching this movie, I thought of this theory that this is a parallel universe where not only fantasy creatures exist, but America was colonized by its original discover, Leif Eriksson, which led to the vast majority of fantasy creatures being from Norse mythology. And damn, that's already way better than their actual worldbuilding of "Return Of The King happened in real life but the only change was the Alamo being a bigger deal", and I'm not a good writer.

  • I like this vid, and I like the broad point about alternative history. BUT: "...'Crip-walk your asses on back to the barbecue'...the crips [exist]...[a lot of simplified history] follows that the Atlantic slave trade existed." That's maybe reaching. Just a little. I'm not even touching Constantine. But the issue you don't deal with (and okay, neither does Bright) is the alternative ways the world might have reached the structures we have today. But the point about how human racism functions in a world with non-human racism is really, really good.

  • I JUST REALIZED THIS EXPLAINS THE IDEA OF BEING MAD YOU CANT FLY THE CONFEDERATE FLAG. So we understand that in fact racism = prejudice+ power. But If you function under the notion that racism is rooted in the past wrongs of ancestors, that means you believe racism essentially equals prejudice at those who were once oppressors or attempted oppressors. So with that mindset the message becomes "it is wrong to be overtly angry about colonialism." with this idea we can basically interpret the dark lord as a hitler archetype and Jacoby could actually be interpretted as a someone with Nazis in their family history. and will smith as a black man who is being made to partner with a guy who himself isnt a white suprematist but also keeps telling his black partner to forget history.

But initial test audience reactions found her “too bitchy” so they completely rewrote and reshot her character. Yeah, the movie was almost finished and they decided to completely rewrite his wife and essentially his motivation. Bad.

Shadowrun has a very similar premise to this movie, albeit far more cyberpunk, so it may have been a little too futuristic for this movie, but I feel like they still could have learned a lot about how to mesh classic high fantasy with a gritty real-world setting from it.

The point about Crash being not right, incase anyone missed it, is that is does NOT advance the racial conversation, like its supposed to. It doesn't "work." I wouldn't bother talking about this stuff if I didn't care, so yes, lets express ourselves, make movies, and if you can write a story genuinely, go ahead and address social issues. It just does not work when its the other way arround. Much Love Everybody Peace.

  • Tolkien was all about using his own works as allegory for things ranging from Christian-Norse creation mythology, to his experiences during the First World War. For instance, the return of the Hobbits to the Shire at the end of the Lord of the Rings trilogy to find that the home they left was no longer as they knew, served as allegory for the changes already taking place in the author's childhood hometown during his youth, and the manner in which the Hobbits easily handle the invading Men led by Saruman and Wormtongue, is allegorical telling of how Tolkien came home from the war a changed man, unable to return to that state of innocence that existed when he left. The Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin who left the Shire in The Fellowship of the Ring would not have been able to retake it, but the Hobbits who came back from the war were mature and hardened enough that Gandalf was confident in their abilities that they wouldn't need his help. Tolkien was simply opposed to in-your-face allegory, the sort C.S. Lewis often indulged in with his own works. Bright is the sort of faux-woke in-your-face messaging that, to quote Seth MacFarlane via Peter Griffin, "insists upon itself." The "writing," if one can call it that, is lazy, not at all thought out, insulting to the intelligence, and "defended" by the people behind it all through invoking false accusations of bigotry because nobody likes their craptastic product. As you point out, this all could have been saved in re-writing, as often as needed to make it work, but no one wants to be the adult in the room and tell today's crop of writers that they're not actually any good at writing. I can't imagine any of the writers, or for that matter, show runners like Brannon Braga, of the 1980s and 1990s ever being content to pass off such drivel as this. It's crap and would not have been produced. Likely Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich would have shat it out, but really, when haven't they produced anything but utter garbage yet managed to get away with it?

  • On Bright's lazy worldbuilding... I think I remember the original release window coming complete with a slapdash companion website that addressed a few points and that even shyly touched on the weirdness of the Nine Races' emancipation being such a big deal while *also* being sidestepped in favor of real-world events that led to Los Angeles' existence. There was some mention of some Franciscans being ready to shelter Orcs in need, but it was extremely, frustratingly shallow. Some earlier script treatments were a lot more careful with their injection of Fantasy elements in LA's historical background, but it does look like Ayer took a gander, ran some numbers and went "Nope, fuck it, all we need is orcs and elves onscreen, the rest can just be implied - and Orcs need to be Hella Street and shit so we pull in the demographics that wouldn't normally go for Urban Fantasy." And that's just sad on so many levels. It makes me hope that some author, somewhere, will take Bright's basic premise and actually *carefully* weave Fantasy elements into the modern world, so they feel as real and grounded as the historical stuff they coexist with.

  • There's a basic failure of language that caused the spark that imagined this story: elves, dwarves, mankind, orcs - these are SPECIES. You wouldn't call a donkey a race of horse, even if they can mate, and produce offspring. Races are a weak flawed concept, with little to no basis in biological reality. Yeah, some people who stayed in colder climates with little sunlight selected for lower levels of melanin. So fucking what. We are now a global species. One species. That's it.
