Just watched Ghost in the Shell and I think it was a pretty good movie, but don't take my word for it. I mean, I like everything! (except maybe JavaScript)

@MutoShack I got that sitting in my Kodi box ready to watch, might see it tonight

@MutoShack It didn't seem to rate well. I mean among people, not critics. Just looking now

Not bad, but a lay reading of those links would be a solid 'meh' no?

@MutoShack I meant, why did you muto think it was good?

@gemlog
Interesting! Maybe the movie got bad reviews because it didn't stay true to / wasn't as well done as the anime version? I wouldn't know as I've never seen the anime version, but I really liked the way the whole city was designed. It had a nice cyberpunk-esque to it.

The storyline was a little cheesy, but that's something I really like to see in movies, it has a charm.
I'm not sure why, but it all gave me "Mirrors Edge" vibes as well. All in all I think it was good, despite poor reviews

@MutoShack @gemlog I enjoyed it. A bit like a modernised robo cop with a few twists

@smallsees

Its good to hear someone else enjoyed it other than just me! I might just have to read the manga now, haha!
