It Looks Cool: Ghost in the Shell (2017)

There is so much baggage around the live-action remake of Ghost in the Shell I have been struggling with where to start. I do not want to seem calloused by ignoring the issues, but at the same time I just want to talk about the movie. Yes, director Rupert Sanders (or whomever was ultimately responsible for casting) whitewashed the Major by using Scarlet Johansson. In the current climate that seems incredibly foolish, and while there are probably good enough reasons why (or even if there are not), I am not interested in pursuing them here.
