A love-letter to Terry Pratchett and Discworld

Cohen the Barbarian was angry. Angry that he never died in battle, angry that the world had forgotten him, and angry that his knees were starting to play up in the cold. He was also angry that his faithful mount had been gifted the ability of magical speech. The horse was insisting that they had made a wrong turn back at Slice. He was also angry that the horse was probably right. This was not how it was supposed to end for the barbarian. This was not how the Discworld’s greatest hero imagined it at all.

The nostalgia is emanating through the screen. The nostalgia about the better times. Times when trolls were scary, heroes were epic and Sir Terry Pratchett was alive and writing a book every year or two.

When people say that disc world books are comedy fantasy books, it shows that they've only ever read the colour of magic. The disc world books are genera fiction, set in a fantasy world with a comedic tone (as no one in their right mind would describe nightwatch as a comedy), but the one theme which ties all the books (even the colour of magic) is "these changing times", and it's a theme I love so much. The original short story was great, a troll and a barbarian talking about how much things have changed, and lamenting the loss of the old days.Thus film was spot on, and it got me in the emotions. I think Terry would have loved this, and maybe would have asked why he didn't get a casting call to play Cohen :P brilliant work and I'm glad you shared it.

Directed by Daniel Knight Starring Don Bridges, Ruben Francis, John Jenkins, Troy Larkin.
