Innovative anime.

"And where does the newborn go from here? The net is vast and infinite."

Back when it was first released, Ghost in the Shell was looked upon as a thoroughly engaging and original piece of anime. Over 10 years on the film has lost next to none of its original impact.

But it's a shame the film is too convoluted, confusing, and rather boring at times too. I will admit t... read more

From the very beginning, Ghost in the Shell promises to be something very special. The beautiful opening music sets the tone, emanating the futuristic, mystical quality that pervades the film. And for the next 85 mins it will put a spell over you and catapult you into its brilliantly realised vision.

The visuals are spectacular! Truly mesmerising. It's difficult not to be completel... read more

Great, smart and complex Sci-Fi story, which can be a little confusing, but never boring, about cyborg Motoko which asks herself what makes us human. Movie that deserves and requires deep thinking and multiple viewings. Anime that inspired The Matrix and got inspired by Blade Runner, so if you like those movies, you'll might wanna check out Ghost in the Shell (Kôkaku Kidôtai).

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: December (11 movies items)

"December 12 "If we all reacted the same way, we'd be predictable, and there's always more than one way to view a situation. What's true for the group is also true for the individual. It's simple: Overspecialize, and you breed in weakness. It's slow death." Since the live-action version of this is coming out soon, I decided to check the original one out and see if it's any good. It was a pretty solid film, but I didn't think it was especially great or anything. It did have an original story, "

"MOVIE: cyborg federal agent Maj. Motoko Kusanagi trails "The Puppet Master", who illegally hacks into the computerized minds of cyborg-human hybrids. Her pursuit of a man who can modify the identity of strangers leaves Motoko pondering her own makeup and what life might be like if she had more human traits. With her partner, she corners the hacker, but her curiosity about her identity sends the case in an unforeseen direction...notes by me: if you are a fan of the matrix or other movies based on"
