    SJ is ok for the Major, it's not exactly an emotion filled role, it's more the americanisation of the rest of the cast and it taking place in NY or some shit.

    Hollywood movie trying to sell to American audiences. I don't see the issue with it. Anime watchers alone would not cover the budget of a live action Hollywood movie.

    Because, it is.

    Yeah cuz people would go to see this movie with some random asian actress. The fact is that movies like this are expensive and need to make money. There will be more people who go to see this movie because it has JoHo in it than there is people who know what Ghost in the Shell is.

    But thats what sells. I'll watch the movie for ScarJo whereas I wouldn't bother giving it a shot if it had some authentic asian actor because Hollywood anime movies = meh. So get over it.

    Yes, thank you for explaining the justification Hollywood has always used for whitewashing. It still literally IS whitewashing. It's not really a huge deal, but don't pretend it's not what it is.

    There hasn't been a single hollywood anime movie I can think of that wasn't 100% whitewashed.

    So do you just not see movies without ScarJo in them?

    I don't see where he argued it isn't whitewashing. But guess what, when other countries remake a Hollywood movie, they are also probably going to use actors who look like the majority of the people in the country. It is what makes sense financially. It's not a big deal.

    Wot.

    No, I avoid Hollywood anime movies because they are generally trash. I like ScarJo so she increases my interest in something that I otherwise might not care about. What is difficult to follow there?

    It's like how the Akira movie will probably suck and I probably won't see it but when someone mentioned Christopher Nolan being attached to it, it has the possibility of me changing my mind.

    I don't give much of a shit about whitewashing except for Akira.

    Maybe she can just squint a lot.
