The Mother will show you Jennifer Lopez, as you have never seen before. She did action movies in the past but mostly as a leading lady or damsel in distress. This time she plays the role of a badass assassin who will come out of retirement because of a life or death circumstance. I find it admirable to see a woman in her 50s leading an action movie. Years ago, it was a rarity while it was the norm for older men to lead action films still while women were stuck with matronly roles. Now we live in an age where moms in their middle age can be action heroes. This year alone, Jennifer Lopez proved she is still bankable with the Romantic Comedy, Marry me. J.lo is the same age as the three lead actresses of The Golden Girls when it premiered.

Lookism was a hit Korean Webtoon/Manhwa that became a hit in 2014. Fans had fantasized about seeing this popular web-comic animated. Sadly it is not a manga, and mostly manhwas and webtoons get live-action adaptations. A webtoon got a Japanese Anime adaptation before, the Webtoon Tower of God. Netflix made the impossible because the Webtoon Lookism became Netflix’s first Korean Animation. Netflix is no stranger to adapting non-Japanese materials into Animation. They first did it with the Filipino graphic novel Trese. I am unsure if this will count as Anime despite the art style because this is a 100% Korean production. Let’s invent a new term for this new media. I am going to call it K-Nime.
