      Ghost in the Shell--An Unsuccessful "Puppet"

      First of all, I'm not a fan of Shell in the strict sense. I haven't read the manga, but I have seen the 95th version of the Shell directed by Mamoru Oshii, the fourth version of the movie, and two TV animations supervised by Kenji Kamiyama. So if you are an iron-in-the-shell fan, you are welcome to point out the flaws in my comments, and I also hope to be able to talk about the series with you more.

      Ghost in the Shell--Cyber is Here, Where is Punk?


      Scarlett Johansson is so beautiful; her face is so perfect from any angle, and there is still a look of arrogance between her brows. The fly in the ointment, the flesh-colored tights that seemed to be naked but not naked, looked a bit embarrassing, and I couldn't bear to look directly at them. The footage of the film is dazzling, but...

      Ghost In The Shell--Proletariat Eliminated Bourgeoisie

      This is a very, very, very irresponsible brain (hu) hole (che). Don’t take it seriously and don’t think too much about your friends and neighbors, you see.

      I think the translator in my country may understand the gist of the film better than the original screenwriter.

      Americans may have no idea what this is about

      A three-point score is all about the graphics and special effects. If it has nothing to do with "Ghost in the Shell", I estimate that I can score a score of 4 or 5, but if you have seen the two theatrical versions of Mamoru Oshii, especially Is it Innocence, or the TV version of Kenji Kamiyama, and the original work of Shirou Masamune, and then watching this old beautiful "live-action movie", you will think, what kind of thing is this? Old Mei, have you figured out what "Ghost...

      I regret that this body is not mine, when will I forget about it?

      Is virtual reality virtual or real? The Buddha said, illusion is the real, the real is the illusion, it is called the real, the real is not false.

      In the turbulent city of people, the strange neon lights, the high-rise buildings that pierce the sky, Suzi (widow sister) removed her coat, faced the sky, jumped down, and disappeared naked in this endless dark night...

      In the vast world, all living beings are feasting and...

      Only if its shell is not its god, the metaphysics and AI phenomenology of neon puppets can be mastered by non-heroic bloody routines. . . The details and props are close to each...

      Attack in the Shell fans don't need to be too angry, after all, this movie only has a story without a world view, but the scene is very beautiful, and there is Scarlett Johansson who undresses when a word...

      The picture is dazzling, and the widow sister is beautiful, but the depth of the plot is probably one Empire State Building worse. From the prosthetic person Suzi's search for the meaning of life to the artificial intelligence Major's search for self, the old-fashioned European and American AI films can no longer be...

      The degree of reduction is very high, but it integrates too many versions of the story. Except for the major, Bart has no sense of existence, Scarlett stretches her head and hunchback, is this all the goddess with big...

    Evaluation action

    The film's restoration of several classic scenes in the original work is still in place. However, the contradictions are as obvious as the advantages of the film. The original book has a profound speculation about technology and human nature, and it also contains a philosophical discussion of dualism. The protagonist Kusanagi Motoko is a classic Hamlet-like tragic character. However, in this 107-minute mainstream commercial film, the...

    Movie quotes

    • Dr. Ouelet: Do any of the glitches mean something to you?

      Major: No. They don't.

      Dr. Ouelet: You've been inside the same shell as he has. That could have... very serious consequences. You were not authorized to Deep Dive the geisha.

      Major: You're disappointed.

      Dr. Ouelet: No, I'm worried. You're not invulnerable. I can repair your body, but I can't protect your mind.

      Major: Why not? You can see all my thoughts, so... you should be able to secure them.

      Dr. Ouelet: Try and understand your importance, Mira. You're what everyone will become one day.

      Major: You don't know how alone that makes me feel.

    • Major: The Harbor. My parents. The way they died. Did that happen?

      Dr. Ouelet: No. We gave you false memories. Cutter wanted to motivate you to fight terrorists. I didn't approve. It was cruel, but my work, it was important, and... you were born. You were so beautiful.

      Major: Nothing I have is real.

    • [last lines]

      Major: [narrating] My mind is human. My body is manufactured. I'm the first of my kind, but... I won't be the last. We cling to memories as if they define us. But what we do defines us. My ghost survived to remind the next of us... that humanity is our virtue. I know who I am... and what I'm here to do.

      Aramaki: [in Japanese] Major. Engage targets... You're authorized.
