Capitalism At Work

Giri Haji

Image
Giri/Haji ("duty"/"shame") is simply spectacular.

It's wonderfully shot, extremely well acted, amazingly well written, full of representation, and moves between characters and cultures with an ease you seldom see. The pacing is great--things happen and when things don't happen it still manages to be fulfilling! There's great action when there needs to be. And drama--meaningful drama--aplenty.

And lots of feels.

Easily one of the best things I've seen on Netflix and not just because it's the yakuza series I always wanted but feared they'd screw it up if they tried to do it.

The Kingdom

Image
If you haven't watched the first season of The Kingdom, then you are missing out and should get on it because season two drops next month.

The Kingdom is one part period drama and one part zombie show. It's gorgeously shot with beautiful sets and locations and easy to follow action scenes and zombie attacks. I put off watching it for a while because I thought..ugh, zombies...but I can honestly say this is easily one of the best entries into the zombie sub-genre ever.

Doc Savage TV Series

Image
The lovely wife and I were just talking about Doc Savage a couple of nights ago. Apparently there's a TV series in the works. It's a shame the big screen adaptation starring The Rock with a script by Shane Black isn't happening now.

While a TV show honestly makes more sense, for it to succeed, it's going to come down to three things:
1) Casting the right person to play Doc. 2) Choosing the right showrunner--needs to be someone familiar with this type of material or, at the very least, familiar with Doc. 3) The budget needs to be high enough that it doesn't look cheesy and, no, green screening everything will not work.

Who Killed Malcolm X? - Netflix Trailer

Image
Watched Who Killed Malcolm X on Netflix. Learned a lot of things I didn’t know. And really hammered home again how unabashedly underhanded and illegal the FBI’s COINTELPRO program was. Absolutely worth a watch.
