      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...

      It's better than expected, and it's also an animated remake, at least better than the live-action version of "Beauty and the...

      As someone who hasn't seen the anime and doesn't like the texture of it, this movie is simply fantastic. (Let those superhero bad movies die. This is a good commercial...

      Covering up... I don't have any feelings for the original work, so I feel that the visual effects are shit, the art is shit, and there is no need to complain about the concept. Anyway, the director is only satisfied with a commercial blockbuster and a popular story, and he doesn't care about shooting height and mood. Two stars for Scarlett's prime. , aside from those fancy superhero movies, the widow sister is really...

      Hollywood is bound to cut out the original man and soul thinking and replace it with a simple and accessible conspiracy story. Americans must be "truth", such as what my background is and whether I live in the matrix. Eastern people pay more attention to feel, such as the experience of being able to intubate the back of the brain. But the picture is really done too well, to ask what is cyberpunk, this is the best...

      The script puts it bluntly as a future female Bourne, but the gesture that is a little clumsy but still tries to imitate is really annoying. It is precisely because of this that the fun of this film is still ultimately pinned on the understanding of the original work, rather than lowering the standard and embracing contemporary...

    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...

    • Cutter: [spoilers]

      [last lines]

      Cutter: I Thought That It Might Be You

      Aramaki: [in Japanese] It Is Unwise To Resist

      [Cutter pulls a gun and Aramaki guns him down]

      Cutter: [staggering to his feet, his gun kicked out of reach]


      Cutter: please

      Aramaki: [in Japanese]

      [over the coms]

      Aramaki: Major? I'm With Cutter Is There Anything You'd Like To Say To Him?

      Major: [icily] Tell Him This Is Justice... It's What I Was Built For!

      Aramaki: [in Japanese]

      [brief pause]

      Aramaki: So... Do I Have Your Consent?

      Major: [coldly] My Name Is Major... And I Give My Consent!

      [with a slight sneer Aramaki rapidly fires point blank, then silently watches Cutter fall back into a pool]

    • Kuze: Don't take the medication they give you. They use it to suppress your memories. Your shell belongs to them, but not your ghost. Your ghost is yours. Remember that, and maybe you can remember it all.

    • Major: [Major has just discovered her past life; to Kuze] I remember what they did to us, Cutter and his men. This is where they took us from. We used to sleep right here. We were like a family, all of us runaways. We had nothing except each other. They took that from us. Your name was Hideo.

      Kuze: Motoko... that was your name. Motoko. Come with me into my network. We will evolve beyond them... and together, we can avenge what they have done to us. Come with me.
