Ghost In The Shell (film review)

Film: Ghost In The Shell
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Sci-fi
Starring:  Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbæk, Takeshi Kitano
About: In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals

My Review: 
Having been wanting to watch Ghost In The Shell since it first came out in the cinema I was glad to be able to get my hands on the DVD and finally give this a watch and decided to share my views on it.

This film follows Major who is a machine with a human mind who is used to be a weapon. However, when she comes across a glitch in a robot she starts to see things that aren't there and wondering why this is happening. As this happens she starts to discover her past and how she was not the first machine to have a human mind!

I found this film really interesting to watch, having not read the comic books before by Shirow Masamune. This film continuously kept me guessing what was going to happen next which I loved about it. There was also a lot of action in this which made sense with the movie and didn't just come across as unnecessary which was something I really liked. With also having different characters with completely different personalities it was easy to like each of the characters in different ways and not find that they are far too similar to other people.

I did find however, that sometimes the subtitles that came up went a little too quickly so wasn't able to fully read what was being translated. This mostly wasn't an issue but did make me wonder if I missed anything significant at the time.

Overall, I found this film really well done and I love that it answered a lot of questions that you had throughout the film as well as giving way to make a second one if they so wish to do so. I am glad I have finally watched this film and would recommend it to sci-fi fans!

My Rating: 4/5

My Review:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is e…

My Review:
Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch.

I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the world through the cause…

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI2MbS-e_us

My Review:
Wanting something different to watch I thought I would check out Escape Room which is available to watch on Netflix.

This movie was good in that it did provide mystery and I did enjoy how the puzzles within the Escape Room were laid out and that every room had something in which they had to figure out and it was not just one room. I also enjoyed seeing how the people actually interacted with each other and why they seemed so hostile with certain characters. By also starting the movie with seeing someone having to choose a lock it came across very much like the movie "Saw" which does feel very much the same all the way through the movie. With also having the movi…
