GHOST IN THE SHELL & FREE FIRE DOUBLE BILL REVIEW - podcast review out now


This week we have a special double bill episode. First up is Ghost in the Shell, directed by Rupert Sanders, has suffered its fair share of criticism, but how does it really stand against the 1995 anime classic its based on. Starring Scarlett Johansson, Takeshi Kitano and Michael Pitt, we look into how the philosophy of transhumanism has changed between the different versions, and what could possibly make the remake more worthy. Next we have Ben Wheatley's latest Free Fire, starring an ensemble cast which includes Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy and Sharlto Copley, and takes place all in one warehouse where they all get shot. We discuss the aesthetics of violence and if this film is justified in its minimal plot.
