Ghost in the Shell (2017)
Has anyone seen the 2017 live action remake of Ghost in the Shell? What do you think about it?
It's visually spectacular... no surprise coming from a commercial and music video director, Rupert Sanders. I have rarely seen a movie this visual, in a good way. It's close to perfection in that regard. It has a Blade Runner feel to it.
What I hear though is that the original story and the Japanese culture have been watered down to appeal to a wider worldwide audience outside of Japan. But there's still plenty of story to devour, and apparently the original manga creator Masamune Shirow approves of the film adaptation.
