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 hadn't planned on seeing it even before the reviews came in, mainly because I didn't trust Hollywood to get that kind of cerebral subtlety at all right. It looks like my expectations were accurate.
