Ghost In The Shell

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
It's a pants-on-head retarded, dumb as fuck shit stack movie, but still it is two times better than the 1995 cartoon.

The story is hard to judge, because it is more of a reboot, than an adaptation of same source. It's inconsistent and is about incompetent people, and it outright lifts a lot of scenes from the 1995 film. But at the same time it makes everything better and more appropriate, than in 1995. Even the scenes it directly copied now make much more sense and are better. It feels almost like the great cyberpunk movies of 80-90s: The Lawnmower Mans, Johnny Mnemonic, Hackers, Nirvana. Though, not as crazy or powerful or deep (well, the depth of the 1995 was "water is wet").
The problem is, i'm not talking about how great and focused this movie. The plot is very poor, because they decided that they must use all the "key" scenes from the Kōkaku Kidōtai and the Kōkaku Kidōtai (1995), but didn't manage to integrate them properly in their own story. This film would probably be much better with less of memeberry scenes and with more original content.
What i'm actually talking about (again) is how abysmally bad the 1995 film was. It was even more unfocused, made even less sense and had absolutely wasteful pacing, it entirely failed to provide the narrative for what it tried to say. Well, at least the new film had realized that it has to change the dumbest scenes in the history of the visual media from the 1995.

On it's own it is a visually great movie (which is the most important for the visual media, duh) with a story, which is not just better than the story of 1995, it is actually quite good and deserves a better plot. It could've been better, if it had refused to do fan-service for people who will hate the film anyway, by copying parts of the terrible 1995 adaptation of Kōkaku Kidōtai, which already was pretty unfaithful to the source material. It could've as well been an original IP, but as for now it has too much of heavy luggage, to realize it's full potential.

Ghost in the Shell gets a section 8.

It is one of the most retarded things i ever saw. It is a cheap-ass weeb, with poor animation, dumb story, basic cyberpunk-writing on the level of 400 BC, wasting a lot of time pretending to be a crappy pointless art-house (and losing to the trailer of the USA live action re-make in every aspect), with dialogues written by normies, who have no agency and barely realize own sentience (and even that, is not likely) with pointless tech designed and created by humanities, with random reasoning without reason, paper-thin world, which has more contradictions than coherences, and even every "that scene", which are quoted everywhere, turns out to be pointless garbage, barely related to the plot and extremely ineffective.

This film is a dumb baby's first cyberpunk fanfic written by an amateur, filmed on no budget by pretentious cuck, without narrative nor writing, sold to dumb people, who don't understand biological brain function or sentience, and who have no agency. Even judging with USA-type critique — it's a pile of crap: first, there are no backstories and no invisible exposition, second, there is no character progression, third, there is no "flawed characters" (and i'm getting sick even from mentioning this cancer unreasoning), fourth, none of the characters are "relatable" (i am sick).
The movie has no own merit. The best you can get out of this ordeal are pretentious essays which dived so deep up it's posterior in search of deeper meaning, that they've actually found some. And the funniest thing is that they've found the exact same themes and meanings as in the absolutely scatterbrain and disjointed drug trip Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (and probably in the Blade Runner by association). Also it kind of tries to be a political thriller (?) and as we know, asian cinema school absolutely can not into political movies so far.

Why exactly the most acclaimed "cyberpunk" film, is an absolute pile of crap for retarded people, while any the most bottom of the barrel cyberpunk movie is actually kind of brilliant? Maybe it's because it's cyberPUNK and cannot be understood by normies who don't even have agency? In the genre which is by design should be as niche as possible, the most popular pieces are actually the worst and the least representative for it. Blade Runner is the most basic boy meets girl, and this is at most the Erotic Sounds of Butthurt Idle Animated Scenes for Relaxation to be Played in Background.

The "symbolism" is supposed to be a tool, to explain complex thing with familiar image, or to reinforcу the main theme with minor details. Not to explain an utmost trivial thing with complex image of paint drying. Symbolism for the sake of symbolism (aka decadence), is a meaningless pile of cucketry for stupid people who consider themselves above others, just because they pretend to see deeper meaning where there is none and can't use normal words to deliver their message to sane people.
