I’ve decided not to watch Ghost in The Shell right away. Trying to punish Hollywood’s casting of Scarlett Johansson instead of a Japanese woman would be lost on them at this point to not watch this movie out of spite. Their take away would be either Manga/Anime doesn’t translate to film or that Scarlett Johansson has lost her box office appeal… so what’s the point? I’ll watch it in a few weeks when my money isn’t as important to them. Maybe. So here is a positive and negative review from youtubers that I like. Be warned, the second one has HUGE spoilers.

I was going to say some stuff here about how I might be okay about the white washing of The Major if they took it into this or that area story wise, but after watching those reviews… yeah, I’ve got nothing.
