*Sigh*. Yeah this one took a long time to show up, didn't it? I actually watched the new Ghost in the Shell film months ago, but I never got the chance to review it until now because something more interesting to review would always be around that week. And then the next. And the next. So yeah, I think my lack of enthusiasm gives the whole game away regarding my feelings on Ghost in the Shell: Let's Give It The Same Title As The Fucking First One Like We're A Video Game Franchise Reboot.

I didn't even know there was a new movie read more

What is it that makes us "human" and distinguishes us from machines that, quite convincingly, appear to look and act like us?

We continue to explore this question in GiTS 2015, which begins with a nostalgic flashback scene of Major Kusanagi's childhood, when she began her relationship with Kurts under the falling cherry blossom petals...

AND THEN, we are thrown into the excitement, continuing the unsatisfying ending of GiTS: Arise as the Fire Starter Virus and Ghost Hacking are coupled with a horrendous assassination of the Prime Minister and Kurts, the "greatest event since the War". Excellent action from the [then] fledgling Section 9 is read more

When I got to the end of the movie, could see the link between this and the first GITS movie. It was then that several things made more sense, and this was perhaps the movie which made the most sense to me (who is not a hardcore fan and all).

Ghost in the Shell always excites me with the massive amount of depth comes because of the inherent setting of their world. I must say, that this kind of designing of a storyline is one of a kind and that is something I would remember this franchise for.

Especially when it comes to futuristic genres, where the read more

Not bad! If you’re a fan of the ARISE series, this is a nice way of capping it off. It’s as convoluted and scientific psycho-babble as that series, and the original GITS series and movies too. I suppose if you were expecting something as revolutionary, or at least a cult hit, like the original GITS movie, you’d be disappointed. It’s more of an engaging sci-fi intrigue ride, rather than a head turner. Animation was fantastic, and the action scenes were high quality, as you’d expect from the franchise. I can certainly see people’s disappointment in this movie, but if you’re a GITS fan overall it’s read more

Ghost in the Shell may not have the biggest following, but it's still been popular enough to warrant six movies and three series. That's quite a bit of material. And quite a few different opening animation and themes.
