    My thoughts are:

    Shell, turtle

    combined... not sure what this person is talking about.

    Would this person happen to be me?
    If you have no clue why involve yourself?
    You haven't been involved in the forum for months, when it may have been beneficial.
    So why insert yourself now ?
    Unnecessary, unhelpful not humorous and snarky.
    What's up with the attitude? birdman
    Didn't get a worm?

    It's a movie.

    I am. Your title got my attention, that's why I replied.

    Re: Active... I rarely post anything because it's generally followed by replies such as the one above. I was simply adding to the topic. Nothing was intended to be negative.

    I haven't seen the film, but based on the brief description on Fandango, did you mean whitewashing or brainwashing?  (See, I'm still here on the forums, too. :smile: )

    Another missed opportunity to showcase the talent of Asian-American actors, major roles for whom in Hollywood films are few and far between.

    They still have a steering wheel in their cars.

  • Looks like cool special effects.  Reminds me of the movie Ultraviolet.  I check the board from time to time just to see if anything is up.

    I agree but the movie looks good with some great special effects.

    My reaction when reading that Scarlett Johansson had been cast as Motoko Kusanagi, was hmmm! :-)
    Of course, I had no idea who Motoko Kusanagi was.
    I did recognize the name as being Japanese, so I thought, how odd.
    However, after seeing the anime character that Motoko Kusanagi,
     is based on,
     I understood.
    The anime character's appearance is somewhat ambiguous in regards to race.
    Casting appeared to be an excellent choice, for the live action film.
    To me Scarlett Johansson does resemble the character, and has experience in action movies.
    I believe the criticism has been brutal and unjustified.
    She's portraying a cyborg based on an anime.
