Great Expectations, Low Hopes
Posted on 19 November 2016
Sorry Rogue One but my true excitement lies with Motoko Kusanagi. Sure, the intro to the latest trailer features interview questions with Momoru Oshii, but it’s also easy to find interviews with Stephen King about Kubrick’s version of “The Shining”. I lived through Episode 1 but Clone Wars and Rebels have really renewed my faith in Star Wars. There’s a real chance to do this with “Ghost in the Shell”. Don’t Hollywood things up any more than you already have. Keep the Michael Bay splodey-bits to a minimum. The Wachowskis only make cheap imitations.
All I’m asking is that you please not (royally) fuck up one of – if not the – greatest and most influential pieces of animation since “Snow White”.
