MOVIES & TV - CLASSIC to CURRENT


The official synopsis of this is:


Exposed as an ex-Russian spy, an American single mom must juggle family life and unique shape-shifting skills in a battle against an insidious enemy.

I don't know what "unique shape-shifting skills" are, but I'm intrigued anyway. In From the Cold is now on Netflix as a 10 episode series.

Stars: Margarita Levieva, Cillian O'Sullivan, Lydia Fleming

You all know how much I like kick ass women... We'll see how this stacks up to other series and movies.

I don't have a Netflix account, so I don't see many of them. I have seen some shows through other means...

Sounds strange though.

Shapeshifter skills, well shapeshifters are also known as ''skinwalkers'' are a part of NA's culture. Hopefully, she really has those skills then she would really be kick ass.

Shapeshifter skills include the ability to turn into any animal they want or for some like Nababozho he can change not only into any animal but also any human regardless of gender.

I see in the trailer some kind of weird injection, but I didn't actually see anything I would consider shapeshifting. I'm hoping for some weird shapeshifting to actually happen.

From an online non-spoiler review of the show: 

And since her skills include actual shape-shifting, she is very unique. The shape-shifting element works remarkably well, so don’t worry about it being a weird part of the plot. It really isn’t.

In horror films they often miss use parts of the Navajo lore of the yee naaldlooshii. A twisted evil opposite of a Navajo medicine man.

Hollywood generally screws up anything that is NA.

Anyone not NA generally screws up anything that is NA, including me.

That's true but Hollywood has taken it to a whole new level as they invent stuff about NA's and pretend that it's true. 

If you screw something up it's not because you're inventing shit, it's an honest mistake, and you ask questions of NA's to clairfy things.

Watched the first episode last night. The cast is pretty good and I want to see where that.

So I finished this series this week. It wasn't as fun to watch as Reacher, but it was good. I didn't like the daughter character, and the end to setup a second season was very interesting.

I haven't watched Reacher yet, but I did finish this. I enjoyed it. Probably not something I'd rewatch. The mother/daughter relationship issues felt too forced to me, and at the same time, too convenient. The way it plays out, they could have introduced the daughter and the relationship issues episode one, and let it rest until the payoff. That said, I'll watch a second season. 

As an aside, I thought they did a good job with the action sequences. I got the sense that she was an ass-kicker, not a fat/old Steven Seagal, sidestepping people who really have no intention of attacking.
