    i'll take a look at it soon.
    I heard it was a bad movie but rotten tomatoes has some good reviews.

    I think I posted a review here about that movie.

    It was quite ok as a fantasy heist movie. It didn't bank on the audience knowing their way around the Forgotten Realms, and still it managed to make theheist planning look so much like an RPG team making plans around a gaming
    table.

    Woke factor was not bad, but it was present.

    Hello Arelor!

    I think I posted a review here about that movie.

    I thought you did too, but it must have aged sufficiently from
    my system and got deleted. I was hoping to be able to compare
    it against what I saw.

    Is your "review" one of these?

    Incidentally, your reviews are/have-been a lot of fun to read.
    Maybe could post them somewhere where they can be revisited any
    time.

    I didn't think of it as people sitting around a table and
    making plans. I just saw people on a journey who met
    obstacles, consequences, and figured out solutions.

    Do you mean the w-factor in the storyline? ..or in the casting?
    I didn't notice any wokeness in the storyline.

    some reviews are saying how the different genders are slanted are woke elements.
