    Ghost in the Shell

    It's funny, all these people bitching about whitewashing when it turns out the movie they're bitching about is about whitewashing (among other things).

    Is it pretty? Absolutely.

    Is it great? Of course not.

    Is it as bad as they say it is? No, not at all.

    A decent adaptation with several changes—some good, some dubious, some respectful, some circumstantially and thematically altering. Whether those changes are for better or for worse depends on your attachment to the franchise.

    If the movie seems interesting to you, don't listen to the critics on this one. Go see it and judge it for yourself.

    Full review tomorrow.

    Is Godzilla in this?
    No.…

    Okay, is BvS Batman Part 1 or Man of Steel 2?
    Both. The movie begins and ends with Bruce Wayne and the main plot deals with the aftermath of the events in Man of Steel.

    How's Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman?
    Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne is Ben Affleck. Bale did a better job, but…
