Ghost in the Shell 

 

Ghost in the Shell was covered in the first FFG Haul video. For more information please click here. Pretty cool knowing what products are coming up for review isn't it? I appreciate all of the positive feedback about the transparency of the FFG Haul videos. I purchased the Blu-ray + DVD + Digital version of Ghost in the Shell.

I knew about the anime, and might have even seen the anime movie some years ago. I was very curious to see the live action version of Ghost in the Shell. Scarlett Johansson does not really fit the character in my opinion. She did a masterful job in the role. I was not expecting much from her, but she did it quite well. The camera also hid her body parts that do not really fit the character from the anime. Although to be fair few women could fit that mold.

The issues families need to be aware of is blood, violence, lack of attire, enticement to lust, deceit, lies,bad language, attacks on companies, and more. Ghost in the Shell tries to give a social commentary on humans and robots mixing. The main character is a brain inside a robot body. Her memories have been suppressed and she was given a new past. Thing is she needs to keep taking some medicine to keep those memories suppressed.

There is some cool special effects in Ghost in the Shell. I love seeing those giant holograms advertising different products. The stealth technology is neat to see. It is something also featured in the first Future Glimpses book. The concept of hacking humans is becoming more realistic as each day progresses. I am not interested in enhancements if that is the potential outcome. Why invite some hacker to take over your body?

It took me 106 minutes to watch Ghost in the Shell. The bonus content is Hard-Wired Humanity Making Ghost in the Shell, Section 9 Cyber Defenders, and Man & Machine The Ghost Philosophy. I found Ghost in the Shell to be a very interesting movie to watch. The storyline kept me interested from the beginning to the end. Finding out about her past was very interesting indeed.
