|I bought the glasses.|
|And I got a medal today, but clicked past the award screen.|
|And I caught nine of these driving home today. The Exeggcute hatched from an egg.|
Also today I learned that they're making a US movie of Death Note, which is horrible in itself, because DN is garbage about awful trash people. But they're also making it with white people and setting it in Seattle, since this is how they make awful adaptations now. That made me think about Ghost in the Shell again.
Ghost in the Shell is not shit, despite what they're trying to do with it. I've been avoiding stuff about it, since I don't care about this remake, but something struck me that caused me to pull out my copy of the book and start rereading it. The two scenes from this new crap movie they've been pushing everywhere are remakes of this scene from the 1995 movie, and this scene from the 1995 movie.
"Wait. Isn't that water fight scene only in the movie?" was my brain trying to remember the details.
|Blah blah, stuff happens, Kusanagi shoots the fire hydrant to disable the bad guy's camouflage.|
|Then this scene where she brain-hacks Togusa to make sure he doesn't kill the bad guy, because they need to bring him in for information.|
So yes, the water fight scene is original to the 1995 movie. Oh, and the opening scene where she shoots the guy while falling?
|And then there's this.|
So a lot of the 1995 scene is original too. This new movie isn't just "a reimagining" or whatever bullshit they're claiming. They're just stealing all the cool stuff from the Mamoru Oshii movie and putting Scarlet Johansson on the posters. I was going to say "what's the point of just remaking something in live action?" but since I was already planning to link to this thread I saw retweeted this evening, I know the answer.
- Republicans are awful.
- So it's official. The ex House minority leader for Hawaii isn't going to be a Republican anymore. Because they're awful.
- Just awful.
- For the title only.
- This is a good strategy, and one that should be employed for deciding where to eat.
- Children's books.
