Odd since it was there a day before your post when I looked.

As for the film, it is much better than the rottentomato reviews would 
have you believe.  Perhaps the film side of the reviewer world is still 
smarting from the idea that evil Netflix will convince people to watch 
films in the comfort of their own home instead of the theater?  BRIGHT 
is not the crime procedural I feared it might be.  It is a bit of 
sci-fi, but it is just as much alt.history as sci-fi.  Mostly, though, 
it is a buddy cop flick in the vein of 40 HOURS or BEVERLY HILLS COP.  I 
know some reviewers don't like the idea of sci-fi having any nudity or 
swear words, but really there isn't even much of that...and certainly 
not so much that it should have been a problem for sci-fi viewers. 
Maybe they were worried about their 8 year old kid's fragile ears and 
eyes?  Whatever the case, the film is entertaining and manages a bit of 
funny and a bit of social preaching.  Some of the transitions are a bit 
rough and the fight sequences are definitely a bit too filled with quick 
cuts and wire work and such, but the plot is solid enough and does its 
job creating characters and a world that is interesting and in focus 
enough to warrant a sequel.
