If it's horrible, it might still be amusing to watch for laughs. 

I wonder what role Masi Oka will play in the movie. 

I'm actually really hoping its good I root for Adam Wingard even though Blair Witch was ok and disappointing You're Next is a badass movie and The Guest is amazing plus William Dafoe signing up for this makes me have hope and I'm happy this will be Rated R as well unlike Ghost in the Shell which is PG-13 (even though i hope thats good too, but probably won't(

This was complete trash. I didn't expect it to be an exact copy of the anime, but I thought they'd at least keep some of the themes from it. For example, in the film the Light is played up to be a huge hero. He's always the good guy. In the anime, there's a lot more moral ambiguity and at a lot of points he's bordering on being the villain of the story.


The only good thing about it is that it reminded me what I enjoyed about the anime.
