No Toonami this week, so we instead talk about the recently-released live-action Ghost in the Shell movie. Spoiler alert: it was mediocre. Which was the worst-case scenario for us, because we could neither rant nor rave about it. We somehow managed to fill a half-hour, but that was pushing it.
The movie didn’t really “whitewash” as badly as everyone said; in fact, that’s a pretty big plot point which kind of makes up for casting the Major as a white girl. And it did have some pretty cool moments in the first half. But in the second half, it lost its way, and that’s why it wasn’t anything to write home about. Listen to our episode here to find out more.
