The movie that came on VHS is not the original Ghost in the Shell. The issue westerners seem to have is that the live action movie is based on the original manga and not the animated movie or anime series that came on TV.

That being said. The live action movie wasn't good, but it wasn't this epic letdown the internet is claiming since the animated movie that released in the 90's wasn't exactly the best thing since sliced bread either.

I haven't seen it nor have I been planning to go see it, but just came to comment that at least you went out and gave the movie a chance rather then conform to the massive droves of morons who plagued the internet following the movie's initial announcement.

I've closed this since talk about movies should happen in the Movies & TV forum, and we already have a thread for sharing impressions of the recent GiTS movie there. Please join that discussion:
