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

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
