Happy new year everyone. On tonight’s episode, we delve into one of my favorite anime franchises of all time, Ghost in the shell. We look over the themes presented in the film that will cause existential terror induced panic attacks as well briefly look into the spin off and the horrible 2017 live action.
I didn’t mention the Netflix Gits SAC_2045 as there hasn’t been any other news on it since the teaser was released, which does not fill me with hop given the lack of news. That normally is a bad sign when the audience is kept out of the loop. Netflix has a big hit and miss record with it’s anime. So I go in with the same high amount of caution I do with every other piece of new media.
I also forgot to talk about Scarlett Johansson’s acting from the LA movie, to her most recent 2 films (JoJo Rabbit, A Marriage Story). It’s hard to believe that ScarJo is a good actress when you watch something like GITS LA or Lucy. She is normally very wooden. This year she finally started giving a shit and shows she has some chops. I really wish we would have gotten 2019 fall ScarJo instead of Wooden as Washington’s teeth ScarJo in the GITS movie.
Enjoy this episode and stay frosty fuckers!
