Ghost in the Shell
« on: April 02, 2017, 03:05:38 AM »
Surprisingly I liked the movie. The visuals are BEAUTIFUL. They did put a few scenes from the original anime that I recognized including the original theme song at the beginning and end the movie. I know there are mix reactions toward this film about the controversial whitewashing cast. In my opinion.......I didn't care, believe it or not. Scarlett Johansson did a decent job playing as the Major. I do have a few nitpicks from the movie. As a fan of Ghost in the Shell I enjoyed it and I understood the plot because I know the source material. If you go in the theatre that's not a fan or you don't know about Ghost in the Shell it might make you feel like you're re-watching Robocop, Blade Runner, and The Matrix because of the similar affects, and you might be confused. Overall I give it a 6/10 which is still a good score. 8)

Haven't seen it, that's why.  ;)

Kind of want to see it, kind of don't - hence squarely in the "wait until Netflix" camp for me.

Yeah, it's definitely not something I'm gonna directly pay to see.  Wasn't a fan of the OAV and skipped the series.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

I'll see it once it's available digitally.  I almost never go to theaters anymore thanks to vision problems.
