This movie? It's going to be so. very. sweet. Ghost in the Shell: Innocence
(new int'l trailer). Must see this now! Even if it had zero story... it's like every fancy anime trick with
the whizbang computer animation and a bad ass sdtk (which I annoy the hell out of my co-workers with, only one of them speaks Japanese and she's more into the Ayumi Hamasaki bubblegum jpop scene). I want to see this like I want to see "Sky Captain". The pretty revolution has come folks.
[random geekness] Marvel wants to break into television once and for all? They can team up with Shinchiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) or Mamoru Oshii (GITS) or Rumiko Takahashi (Inu-yasha, Ranma 1/2).. or dare I say it, :gasps: Yoshitaka Amano (Vampire Hunter D). Although I'm not sure my geek nature could stand that many rapturous nerdgasms.... Wolverine, Rogue, Gambit, (Dark) Phoenix flying around all big-eyed, angsty-brooding-male-leads, blood-soaked and/or super-sexy... but retaining that higher-end story telling quality, not compromising any of that integrity? It's too much to hope for, too many egos and too much red tape... it would never happen. Although if it did
DC wouldn't be bitchslapping Marvel in TV like they so pathetically are now. Justice League Unlimited July 31 YAY!
