Ghost In The Shell movie
« on: November 19, 2016, 09:22:38 pm »
A live action Ghost In The Shell movie based on the anime of the same name, is coming out next year in March. Just from the teaser trailer on YouTube, this looks to be quite a hit. I've even read stories where Japanese fans are pretty impressed.  :o

If the Wikipedia link doesn't work, don't blame me. It's Wikipedia's fault for using parenthesis which is screwing up the link.  >:(

They better get this right...... Love that anime series. Never read the manga.  There is a great piece on this at ETC show,

This is the only movie I'm excited to see. Will be the first movie I go to see in years.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

Scarlet Johansson got the boobies so she sells the tickets. She's also white and Hollywood has a serious issue with recasting Asian roles and more or less erasing Asian actors from cinema altogether. Her casting sickens me and I wish they'd go with somebody else. Even if Masamune Shirow gave them his blessing, it's still extremely screwed up.

Any time Hollywood wants to do a big-budget adaption of such a seminal work in another medium/culture, I ask myself why. The rule of this sort of thing is that you have to have artistic integrity. You have to have a pupose. In my directing class in college, we used "Hamlet on Mars" as an example. Does putting the story in outer space do anything for it or are you just doing that for the sake of spectacle?

This suffers from what I call "Recent Adaption Syndrome". The only people who are interested in a live action Ghost in the Shell film are people who are already fans of it. If they're not sticking with the source material though, those fans aren't going to want to see the film. Fans don't like change. Fans like things exactly how they know they like it. In the case of Ghost in the Shell, it's a an hour and a half episode of a crime show with really good cyberpunk elements.

-That's not what Americans want.
-Stop erasing Asian actors.
