    Just the part where you justify writing off a movie as inevitably being shit unless it has an actress you like in it.

    Don't get me wrong, hollywood will fuck up ghost in the shell, but scarjo is pretty shit overall for action movies, as much as I would cut off my own legs to have her sit on my face.

    At least with someone who isnt just a pretty face the movie might be a bit less shit.

    It's almost like different people like different things. Your definition of what makes a shit movie less shit is different from mine. My idea of what makes a shit movie tolerable includes a pretty face rather than slightly better acting.

    And none of it changes the fact that ScarJo being attached to it will give the movie a far wider audience than it would have with a no name asian actress who is better at acting.

    It's pretty simple.

    A good movie with a good asian lead actress who fits the role even if she's not the prettiest > a shit movie with ScarJo > a shit movie with some random asian actress.

    And the first option just isn't a realistic expectation.

    Or, how about stop trying to make anime/manga into real life movies? Can we do that? Can we stop this stupid shit already?

    No because Hollywood has no original ideas.

    There's no real movie ideas left anyway. ScarJo squints, movie flops, everyone wins.

    Pretty much.

    Hollywood should stop being rewarded for shitting on our collective childhoods, a la Akira, constant FF movies, DBZ / airbender. Either way I'm just not going to give them my money, scarjo or not.

    Whitewashing is a one of many symptoms of the overall problem (yes even with FF) that the writers "know better" than whatever the source material actually is. Even if the source material is actual history.

    The shitting on your childhood argument is a tired and crap argument. You're already not planning to see it. It literally doesn't affect your childhood.

    I'm planning not to see it because it has nothing to do with the actual GITS series.

    If it did, I would.

    Now who is having a hard time understanding?

    Well just don't bitch about something ruining your childhood that you aren't gonna see.

    Also I said I'm not giving them my money, not that I'm not going to see it - though I couldn't even bring myself to pirate the new FF after reading about it.

    I'm not even that deeply invested in GITS, I just don't like the fact that it is something that probably could've been done well as a live action movie.

    They put people on it who thought Margot Robbie would be good as the major before they brought on Scarjo, and the dude who did Snow White & The Huntsman is directing.

    Movie was dead before it even had a chance. If you don't like my disdain, that's your prerogative, but get the fuck out if you think your opinion is somehow superior.

    You've literally been doing nothing but this in this thread. I already said different people like different things.

    And The DirtyHobo is right. The movie never had a chance to do it right.

    No, this whole thing started with you telling people to "get over it" with regards to whitewashing.

    I'm merely saying, no, we're not going to get over it. You want to like different things, that's fine, but people can still be pissed about something you aren't pissed off about.

    Sath, I know being an asshole is your thing, but the past week you've been just a massive dick across the forum.

    Is everything ok?

    Well you can argue differences in opinion in what would make a better movie. You can't argue that Scarlett Johannson will sell this movie to a larger audience and thats the reason for the whitewashing. Thats the part I said to get over.

    And I mean, my word isn't law. You can not get over something even if I say to

    Lol!

    99% of the time I'm posting while waiting for codes I'm running to finish up - which will inevitably give me shit that isn't right, which will lead to me being frustrated for a few hours before starting it all over again.

    It's probably a bad recipe for good posting.

    I know this. But truth be told Canith sorta hit the nail on the head.

    I was totally arguing for the sake of arguing. I am bored as fuck right now.
