Re-watched the original Ghost in the Shell last night after not seeing it in... a long while. Yes, the dialog was a little overwrought in placed, and the flat delivery by the dubbing actors in my flippin' VHS copy didn't help. But actually, the movie was better than I remembered. And it's neat seeing it at a precursor to the TV series.
The question is, should I give Innocence another go? I suspect it will remain as crazy as I recall. Maybe worse.
Added bonus: the ad at the beginning of the videotape, which was basically a montage of other early 90's anime, set to a KMFDM song. The 90's were a dark age, folks.
