Scarlett Johannson in the shot which justified me watching it.
@lynne sounds like a decent reason I suppose.
I do wonder if the actress understands that she is suppoused to be a "ordinary" looking andriod female?
thats probably painful for someone so famous
@LoliKing She pulled off the "ordinary" part in the scenes where she's off work well enough. It isn't difficult, put on a dark jacket, jeans, look down slightly depressed and you're good to go. Her voice fits those parts perfectly, just not the emotionless weapon she is at the start.
Honestly though, with actors, a good director and a script can compensate for a bad actor just as much as a good actor can compensate for bad direction and writing if given some freedom.
@lynne ive watched it closer to release, my opinion was it was a great scifi and would be a movie with showing to others if it never claimed to be ghost in the shell.
I suppose it overcame the curse of a live action with its direction, acting and some stunning scenes but in the end was only brought down by attempting to emulate anime...
just biased I suppose
@lynne with showing to others ... fuckin goddamn it
worth showing to others*
pretend I am not an ape sorry
