I was really disappointed at the season 2 finale of Narcos...

Yeah, going to be rooting for the Katanganese and their mercs. I read Mad Mike Hoare's book about all that fighting in the Congo, and the UN was useless, and the communist insurgents were inhuman monsters

The first trailer for the Ghost in the Shell movie has dropped. It honestly looks better than I was expecting:

Also, am I the only one who thinks that the complaints about the Major getting whitewashed is fucking stupid? Especially when you consider the fact that the Major has no ethnic identity.

I am cautiously optimistic about this movie. I am judging it on adaptation and as a movie by itself. As a fan, I have to compare it to the source material and how well it adapts it. So far, I've seen at least 3 different version of this story. The first movie, Stand Alone Complex and Arise. Each one has a slightly different kind of character for the Major with the recent one being the most human.

Since it looks like they are adapting parts of the first movie with elements of SAC's story I think. I heard the behind the scenes, they are using plot elements from 2nd GiG story arc with Kuze.

My first nitpick already with the first trailer is that they had The Major go Hollywood and have her chamber her pistol before jumping...I need to rewatch the scene again in the anime movie to see what she does but I remember in the first episode of SAC, she took her handgun out and flicked the safety off.

Well, her brain is Japanese, but that is it. They are sticking to that part I assume, as her mother is played by Kaori Momoi.

In the original she either chambers a round or is doing a brass check, not really sure. looks more like a brass check as the round inside doesn't move around, but the slide moves back much farther than necessary. When checking I originally put in my 2.0 disk by mistake, forgot how shitty that redone CGI opening scene was.

Its nice to see a lot of real guns as well, especially Batou's shotgun being the first live action appearance of a Crye Six12.

Yeah, I checked. She was brass checking her gun, which I think would have been a better dramatic effect thing to do, but I am not sure if the gun she's using in the movie trailer was a real gun.


Does anybody want to start screen capping?
