Okay, so this was what I tweeted after coming out of the earliest morning screening of GHOST IN THE SHELL feature film, via twitter.com/toysrevil: ”Go into #GhostInTheShell not expecting a direct copy of the 1995 anime, & you'll have a fine time being surprised w/ nods sprinkled all over.
While longtime fans might argue more could be packed into #GhostInTheShell film, as a general release it already is dense enough, IMO.
For folks still angling for the #whitewashing controversy in #GhostInTheShell, the issue of identity is addressed & I like it...
...in light of identity issue addressed, #ScarletJohansson does extremely well in #GhostInTheShell & I wouldn't want anyone else.
Do not miss #GhostInTheShell if you have the chance. I am now glad I have 2 GITS in my life = the #Animes and this film :)
Sat in the credits, listening to the iconic #GhostInTheShell theme, and held back tears of joy, i sh*t you not. GOOD WATCH. Enjoy, people!”
… and while this is just a positive gist of my impressions, more of which will (hopefully) happen by the weekend, its tons of spoilers LOL
Not necessarily “the best”, but it certainly entertained me, and I am glad I caught it in the cinema hall.
