Ghost in the Shell (Sidenotes: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 and The Wild Life)


If you want to hear more of my review on this film, check out my video blog, and subscribe to Real Movie Critic on YouTube:

Ghost in the Shell had some awesome visual effects, but the story was very uneven for me where it took me in and out of its purpose, however, I believe the fans will enjoy it!!!

Rating: 3 Stars

What I Like:

-The special effects were great visually that provides eye candy for us to enjoy
-Scarlett Johansson as Major was pretty good, with the accusations of white washing aside (which I believe is a Hollywood problem), she did hold her own
-Fans of the manga and anime will respect and enjoy it

The So So:

-The story was uneven for me, I was trying to understand the premise and it’s purpose, but all the crazy things happening made my mind very uneven for me to understand, once I got it, it can be satisfying

What I Didn’t Like:

-As I said the story as satisfying once you understand, however, it is a typical sci-fi rom com which really didn’t blow me away as it should


For a person who hasn’t watched the anime, let alone read the manga, I thought this film was ok with me. I loved the visual effects which were stunning in its own right, but the story was just unevenly subpar for my taste. Maybe the fans will love it, but for me, it is another film that suffers in mediocrity!!!

Rating: 3 Stars


(Sidenote: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2- To make this short, the comedy, story, and charm is pretty much exactly like the first film only without the surprises. It’s not a good thing, but it’s not a bad thing either which only people who enjoy these movies can enjoy for themselves!!!

(Sidenote: The Wild Life- This film was beautifully animated which didn’t keep me from being bored with the rest it had to offer. It is just a typical Madagascar/Rio wannabe with a cliched story, and the comedy which wasn’t great either. It did have some charm to it, but not better than being ok at best!!!
