Is Ghost in the Shell the too deepest for you film of all time or the most pretentious film of all time?
Hate to say it but EoE is both. GiTS really isn't that hard to understand.
Man-machine interface, on the otherhand, is the result of Shirow having a stroke in the middle of writing but somehow not stopping for a hundred extra pages.
world doesn't work like binary system
EoE is far easier to understand than GitS on first watch if you understand the TV series.
That's not Innocence.
EoE takes the cake for symbolic toodeepforyou bullshit
>deepest for you
>most pretentious film
It doesn't seem like we were watching the same things.
Thematically, GitS isn't incredibly complicated. What makes it such a masterpiece is the cinematography, the acting, and the music. The artistic presentation of GitS is at the same level or higher of many critically acclaimed western films. It is one of the greatest animated films ever made.
Started watching SAC:2nd Gig. It's aight, but fuck if you don't have some measure if intellect and patience you will hate it to shit.
Doesn't mean both films weren't completely fucking amazing though.
There's that word again.
Do you have an actual complaint, or are you doing that, "be cool by hating things everyone else liked" shtick.
What did you find pretentious or 2deep4u?
I think that scene on the boat with her and Batou might have went into the territory, but it also set up just how disconnected they both are because of being robo bodies.
The long walks with Major in the city seemed only there to look pretty, but was good to show off how many people have the same model body as her, thus more disconnect for not being a real boy.
I found 2nd Gig way worse than SAC in that regard. Doesn't help that there's two different, very huge conflicts going on at the same time.
one has a Mc that is a total pussy and one has an Mc that has a pussy.....a robot one
>TFW remake is 100 times better than the original version of gits.
2nd Gig is definitely the worse season, I just couldn't find the refugee plot very interesting, and it just seemed way more messy. The standalone episodes I felt were better than the first seasons, though.
The ending with the lolita body was kind of dumb
Also >people actually not understanding NGE and EOE
You know one thing I didn't like about Slayers.
The fact that Lina is basically a max level wizard in dnd terms, and her friends are all probably around there, but very rarely can they actually fight the damn monsters.
I don't know how many /tg/ people are in here, but I hated and loved how accurate the fighting for Gods and epic level creatures got handled. The part would ether completely curve stop it, or it would curve stomp you.
It was kind of annoying to know that they couldn't really do a whole lot most of the time.
Ah fuck wrong thread.
Time for bed
Honestly, I didn't get it. Watched it about 4 years ago and it didn't blow me away like it was supposed to. Akira, on the otherhand, was a much better watch.
Agreed. It's hard to keep up with at times, and if I try to multitask and play a game or do work as I watch, I keep having to rewind and ensure I don't miss any of the conversation.
Standalone episodes so far have been pretty solid though.
That makes me sad, I loved 2nd gig, maybe because I like to follow the political world?
It's really just my preference, it was too political to me and I felt I lost a couple of plot points, the laughing man was more interesting to me. It really went in depth with the politics though so someone who prefers it would get a lot out of it, though.
this is bait. because jinroh is the most pretentious shit right above Fez game next to in aeroplane over the sea. I wanted to see armored men killing each other not their inner battles with morality. fuck you Redwood
OP that's not Innocence.
Innocence has dialogue completely composed of characters spouting quotes from philosophers and stuff right out of their asses.
>if you understand the TV series.
which to the average person it seems to take a second watch, and there you have things like the black moon
That would be the second movie.
That was pretty much my face during most of the time they were in the mansion.
Depends on how you want to use your buzzwords OP
>I understood it and liked it
>I did (not) understand it and didn't like it
