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).

"I bought both of the original movies after watching the Hollywood version. I liked this one quite much too. There's a lot of moments that are borrowed from this to the newer film but there is also many differences so the movie wasn't a unnecessary remake."

"Ghost in the Shell" (1995)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Major Motoko Kusanagi, a cyborg policewoman, and her partner Batou hunt a mysterious and powerful hacker known as the Puppet Master.This movie, often considered one of the greatest anime films of all time, has been on my watchlist for a while now, and the new American remake gave me the perfect excuse to bump it up the list. :)Much like Get Out (which I just reviewed), this is another one that I felt, while still fun to watch, was far more interesting for its themes and topics for conversation. In fact, I watched Chris Stuckmann's review after seeing the movie, and his insights and analyses are just superb, bringing up stuff I would never have even thought of.As a casual viewer, my impression is that the narrative is solid, and of course the animation is consis” read more

"Mar 13th 5.8 Excellent visual style and apocalyptic world. The story doesn't have enough power to carry all the way to the end but still worth a view imo. "

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, "
