Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell ★★★★

Any film that casts Michael Pitt as a superhuman being can't be all that bad. I actually enjoyed this, though. Its existence takes nothing away from the original, and I could see myself choosing to watch this over that one in the future, if for no other reason than to figure out if it stands on its own or if it relies too much on knowledge of previous films - still on the fence with that. Also, it might have benefited all around from a sense of humor.
