Are you for, or against the creation of a live-action Adaptation of Ghost In The Shell?
Yes! Live-action would improve GiTS immersion etc.

No. A live-Action Adaptation would only hurt GiTS's rep.

Hmmm. I can almost imagine them casting some mainstream Hollywood actress as the Major, turning section 9 into an American faction (secret service-ish), changing the names of its members, Batou and Motoko in a sex scene just for the sake of it (or at the very least making out), and throwing in tons of cheesy cliches, and preachy dialogue.

Sheesh, the possibilities are endless. Haha! And to think that those are just a few of the horrors that randomly pop into my head whenever I think GitS Live-Action Film. Razz



....Y'know....as sickening as this'll sound, now that you mention it, how can they NOT restrain from making a random sex scene with Motoko and Batou?! They'll completely defile the sanctity of their distant relationship which is never supposed to be a awakened if they do that kind of bullshit. >: ( GAWD I'm getting angry simply thinking about it....


mm


speaking of sex scene, I came across a rather disturbing flash game. Batou vs. Motoko...they aren't fighting...haaha. Sorry you're gonna have to look for it yourselves.... Wierded me out.

O.o That was the most disturbing thing I have ever seen.

Probably even beats the obese motoko fanart I saw on Deviant Art.....

Associating the word "motion" to that video makes me want to scrub my skin with one of those metal sponges. Sad I feel gross all over.....


As for the movie, I wonder if they'll do the infamous tank battle. That has been a signature for everything Ghost in the Shell created.

In SAC we had Motoko topping that tank where the man had died and his brain was controlling it.
In SSS her prosthetic strattled the scientist before he went bye bye.
In the game the final boss was a tank.
In the movie, obviously, it was the beginning of the whole tank ordeal, having become one of the most iconic cinematics in movie and anime alike.

Smile I want tank.

In SAC there was also the battle with the Armed Suit in the hotel, that was very much influenced by the tank battle in the original film.

There was just something EXTREMELY creepy about her when she ended up shooting the guy with the sniper rifle at point blank. She was RUTHLESS! Shocked I like my Motoko when she's scary, but I'd rather that doesn't happen more than three times. ....scary cyber lady....

Yeh she got really scary in that scene. Shooting someone at point blank range with Saito's favourite rifle piece is pretty harsh, it's not exactly a kiddies pop gun to say the least, the damn thing fires shells that must be going on for 18mm!

Even the Major gets an attack oft he red mist sometimes, then agai nwhat do you expect when someone blows your damned arm off then tries to crush you head by standing on it.

It was written in her eyes, "Now you see me," very blunt, rather unattractive yet completely kickass hand motion, "...Now you don't. Watcha gunna do 'bout it?"

That scene was the one that shows that she is still human more than any other. The rage in her shows that no matter how cyberized she is there is still a living persons soul locking inside all those parts.

She has always done somethings that are kind of creepy Twisted Evil The first time I ever saw her she was assassinating a diplomat. So it seems she has ending life. then she faught off a tank to save a cyberbrain.

I guess we should have started a new thread for this topic
