In Extremist Movie Debate, Ethan and Unpaid Intern Jeff’s true feelings about the movie do not matter. They flip a coin to decide who loves the movie and who hates it. They then debate it on the fly. This episode? Ghost in the Shell.
Oftentimes, hilarity ensues (or just offensive arguments). As always, SPOILERS AHEAD.
Ghost in the Shell [official trailer]
Ethan asks, “What on earth is the purpose of [Ghost in the Shell] if not to understand the dichotomy between human and cyborg?” He thinks where the original anime movie soared, this movie crashes and leaves any deeper study of the theme for surface-level action. Unpaid Intern Jeff, again stepping into the role of debater, thinks everyone did a great acting job. He applauds Scarlett Johansson for being a badass, catching bad guys, and getting shit done. Joe quickly realizes his inability to see Ghost in the Shell was a blessing in disguise.
