    Just so there's no misunderstanding between the two words. The Dictionary meaning of Both words:
    1. Acting: Art of representing a character on a stage or before a camera by means of movement, gesture, and intonation. It is the work of an actor or actress, which is a person in theatre, television, film, or any other storytelling medium who tells the story by portraying a character and, usually, speaking or singing the written text or play.
    2. Performance: It is the art of doing something successfully; using knowledge as distinguished from merely possessing it;

    So yeah, her performance as an emotionless drone, was spot on. Whether she conveyed the character, that's a whole different story. That's not to say she can't act or that her action sequences can be something that will work in GitS. And also, you completely ignored my reference to Under My Skin. Where her character matches that of Motoko in that sense that she's questioning who she really is.

    I ignored the reference to Under My Skin because I've never seen it.

    Fucking lol at bringing out dictionary definitions as though you didn't know exactly what I meant by saying there was no performance in Lucy. What I meant, as you must've known unless you're incapable of reading connotation in addition to words-as-written, was that literally anyone could've replicated Scarlett's "performance" in Lucy. Lucy was not an acting achievement, her performance in it would've been better suited to an audio book than the screen.

    Also, in what way would playing an "emotionless drone" help her play the Major? The Major may not show her emotions openly, but that's very different from not having them.

    Just to be clear, I think Scarlett Johansson is a fine actress and is probably perfectly capable of play Major Kusanagi, but if I were her, Lucy isn't a movie I'd be putting on my resume when looking for other acting jobs.

    Ironically, when you Google her name. All of those images appear in the base image search.

    Seems Warner Brothers heard the outrage from this movie and decided to cast all Japanese actors/actresses for Full Metal Alchemist.

    Nope.

    The movie's being made in Japan. It's doing the exact same logical thing as this movie.

    If done right, I kind of picture this movie with the feel of Bladerunner and the intellectual stimulation/plot development of the anime.

    That being said, we know this won't be done right, so it will be more on the level of "Lucy." - Mindless action and CGI.

    I... I think, it's supposed to be Batou.

    I'm impressed by SJ as the Major but.....not so much the guy as Batou, I think they should have made the effort to keep his eyes.

    It's supposed to be laughing man era isn't it? So like a solid 10-15 years after it happens.

    I guess that's possible, but has he ever not had them?

    I mean as far as what we've seen in the iterations of GITS (haven't seen all of them), I was always under the impression that he got them before the events of all the stories.

    Probably. Maybe it's a problem with the actor like how the actress for Bulma in DBR wouldn't color her hair blue.
