I mentioned this last week and I figured we might as well go ahead with it. Let's have a thread to discuss/compare/deride the new Ghost in the Shell movie as well as the previous anime installments and of course the new porn parody (yes, if you search "ghost in the shell porn parody" it's the first thing to pop up).

How does the live action Hollywood edition hold up? If you haven't seen it, what do you expect? What does it spell for the future rash of live action comic and anime adaptations?

I haven't seen the live-action version, mainly because of lukewarm reviews, but I've always been a fan of the original.

Live-action adaptions are hit-and-miss for me. Some of the comic movies have been really excellent (like The Dark Knight) and others have been total dogs (see: every other recent DC movie outside of the Batman trilogy). The fact that live-action GitS turned out underwhelming isn't much of a surprise.
