Ghost in the Shell: Innocence was quite a film. People aren't joking when they say the movie is like 20% characters spewing out quotes. The dialog was overblown and pointless philosophy, which I expect to some degree in my anime, but they've really raised the bar here. I mean, it's both slow, rambling, and esoteric. Which is a shame, because there's an actual decent story going on behind all that. And even some of the points they labor over would be pretty interesting, if treated differently. The music was also pretty dang good.
And oh, the visuals. If I hadn't already been disappointed with Sky Captain, this movie would have done it for me, because the imagery and effects just put Sky Captain to shame. The graphics were complex, often hyper-realistic, and totally engrossing. I would say if you like that sort of thing, that's more than enough reason to watch the movie on the big screen, honestly.
Oh, and just in case I wasn't dorky enough here, let me note this is probably the best Shadowrun movie I've seen. It's cyberpunktastic.
