Can they do some trippy full acid color visuals from Ditko and not rip off Inception? This movie is trying hard to copy paste Christopher Nolan.

I might see this just for Mads.

All that mind punch scene makes me want to see Cuckoos mind punching Quire through his anatomy on the big screen. Now THAT would be awesome.

I ♥ Tilda Swinton. She was brilliant as The Archangel Gabriel in Constantine.

It makes me wonder will Iron Fist series also have bald white androgynous Tibetan monks to teach him kung fu?

No, because that would defeat the core message of Iron Fist: that a white man is better at kung fu than them azn people.

I love that he mentioned Ghost in the Shell.

Here's something.

The 1995 Anime movie takes place in Hong Kong. It is called "New Port City" in the English Dub, but those involved with the movie all confirm it's Hong Kong.

Secondly, not all of the characters are ethnically Japanese. Depending on the version you are watching affects the very core of Major Motoko Kusanagi's character.

In the original manga the only thing "human" that was ever used of her original body was brain material you could fit in a shot glass. That is even called into question during the manga because Public Security Section 9 specializes in information warfare and experimental cyberization.

The Major is constantly angsting over the possibility that her bosses were lying about her being human at all. That is why the Puppet Master hits so close to her. She could easily be an AI with sentience.

In the Movie her origins are the same, but in a scene with Batou she informs the audience that both their bodies are the property of Public Security Section 9.

If they wanted to resign, that meant forfeiting their bodies and the vast majority of their own brains. Meaning if the Major and Batou ever quit, they would be lucky to end up as a partial brain in a jar.

In the Stand Alone Complex series the Major was a young child whose only survival meant full cyberization. Her original body was discarded and her cyberbrain was installed into a full prosthetic body. She grew up as a full prosthetic experiment.

Fuck if I know what the Major's history is in Ghost in the Shell Arise.

In the original movie the Puppet Master is a sentient being spawned by exposure to the internet. It was initially created by Americans to cover their dirty laundry and manipulate the global economy in their favor. The Prime Minister, Public Security Section 6, and American officials were the bad guys in the original movie.

In SAC, The Americans are again the bad guys. As they also worked with corrupt Japanese Officials to lie about faulty technology in the first season. In the second season the Americans were working with certain Japanese government officials to subdue and ruin the Japanese economy and undermine the government to make it subservient to the American government.

They even went so far as to have the Americans fire nuclear weapons on Japanese soil to kill refugees from various Asian countries.

The Tachikomas had to ram the satellite containing their entire memories and personalities into the nuclear missiles the American nuclear submarine fired.

Japan in SAC claims to be a capitalist country, but it really is a socialist bureaucracy. America is a pure capitalist country, and is officially called "The American Empire."

Iin SAC there are three Americas. The American Empire, The Russo-American Alliance, and the United States of America.

America in the world of Ghost in the Shell: SAC

Japan also has a long history of using the Jews as villains.

In the shitty OAV Angel Cop, the Jews had seized control over America. Japan was the leading economic country in the world. So the Jewish American country attempted to undermine Japanese rule, dump their nuclear waist on Japanese soil, and order the brutal murder of a Communist Terrorist Cell they created all to take control of the Global Economy.

There is no way to make Ghost in the Shell acceptable to the general US audiences without whitewashing it.

I'd like to know what they are going to do with the fact Batou, Saito, Paz, and Ishikawa all smoke habitually.
