The Cord Cutter Podcast #31: Bright

Welcome to the 31st edition of The Cord Cutter Podcast! Netflix has finally debuted its first big-budget (potential) blockbuster, Bright, and it's time for us to dissect it with the same fervor that Will Smith kills a fairy! This week, Mick, Adrienne and their guest, CinemaBlend's own Eric Eisenberg, will tell you everything you need to know about the action-fantasy film and whether or not it's worth your streaming time! Netflix has gambled big on Bright. The Will Smith and Joel Edgerton starrer had a $90 million budget, and the streaming service believes in the final product so much that a sequel actually got the go-ahead before the first film had even hit Netflix.

Now, we're here to go over all the details on Bright, and you can be sure that by the time we finish you'll have all the info you need on the new movie. Is Bright one of the best things that Netflix has ever done, or one of the worst? How does the fantasy world building match up with the story of two cops trying to stop an evil plot, which is the focus of the movie? What does Bright do right, and what does it do very, very wrong? Do fairy lives matter? Did director David Ayer really right the wrongs he made with Suicide Squad? And, just what the hell is up with that damn dragon, anyway? We'll talk about that, and much more! Ready to dive in? Great! Read on to get the lowdown on this week's podcast and then listen for yourself above!
