Ive never heard of this movie. 
Will Smith + Elves + Orcs + etc.

It broke the Netflix record of most watched movie... so it will receive a sequel.

Good idea, but respawn is worth $400 million. Also doesn't ludicrousspeed not like the second one  :P
Don't bring my plan back down to earth god dang you! Anyway, Titanfall 3 would be better than any game that ever existed. So much so that reviewers would have to give it 11 out of 10. It would make history by being the first game to score over 100 on Metacritic.

I liked the movie, but I agree with the worldbuilding.  Personally think there is quite a lot of potential for the world they show in the movie, but they dropped the ball on it.  If it was anything but a buddy cop film it might have helped, but maybe the sequel will get more things right.

The world building in this movie sucked. On a technical level it's objectively horrible and my personal opinion is that it didn't have any potential to begin with. Pretty much every critic and person in real life agrees with me, yet specifically on Reddit it's really loved for its world building (hey, maybe even you really liked its world building!). So why is that?


I believe it's due to "refrigerator magnet" world building, as defined by Lindsay Ellis. Bright treats worldbuilding like tossing magnets on a refrigerator. Add a centaur magnet, add a fairy magnet, add a dragon magnet, etc. They have absolutely no impact on the world and are just lazily slapped on the surface. Yet the casual viewer isn't going to think about this and will instead walk away impressed. The movie somewhat subtly inserts these magnets so viewers get less time to analyse them, and will even feel initially smart for noticing them ala "show don't tell."

So it's understandable that people would initially really like the worldbuilding, but it's kinda frustrating that "tease the movie is well made but don't show enough for it to become painfully obvious the movie is bad" has become a semi successful method. I've noticed other films follow this approach too so hopefully with time this trend will become too noticable to casual viewers and the technique will die off.
