Let’s face it. Warlocks are f–king cool. By definition a warlock is a male witch, so basically you could say Harry Potter, Gandalf and Merlin are all warlocks. Even the evil ones are pretty damn sweet; you’ve got Sauron and Saruman from Lord of the Rings and Voldemort and his Death Eaters from the Harry Potter series.
Sure when you see the warlock Leezar in the movie Your Highness, you laugh at him because he’s so damned ridiculous looking, but that movie was supposed to be a parody of a fantasy movie. So it’s really off the wall strange when you have some jack-off spouting off to the media claiming that Your Highness paints warlocks in an unfair light.
To see said jack-off, look no further than Christian Day.
Christian Day gained minuscule notoriety for his attacks on Charlie Sheen, which he claims tarnished the good name of Warlocks everywhere, but has now moved his focus to the movie industry and called for an all out boycott of Your Highness. Wow.
Not only does this guy look like he’s in desperate need of getting laid, but he looks to be quite possibly the worst fricking warlock I’ve ever seen. I’m pretty sure this guy can’t shoot fireballs from his hands or lightning from his eyes. And there is no way he could possibly forge an evil ring to rule mankind or split his soul into seven pieces. That being said I really don’t know what his beef is with Your Highness.
From what I can tell, real life warlocks and witches dabble in herbs, curses and other magical items that with all probability won’t work on anyone. So it’s kind of funny to see them wanting a boycott of Your Highness when the warlock Leezar in it can use all sorts of crazy magic with his trusty staff and they can’t…ever.
So until there is a movie featuring a warlock who can’t use sweet magic and is a total asshole, I think the Warlock community better just try to capitalize off of Your Highness‘s meager box office success and just claim they put a curse on it from the start.
