271: ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Starring Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbaek, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche

It’s the movie everyone is talking about, but apparently not seeing in theaters. ‘Ghost in the Shell’ is the live-action remake of the beloved 1995 anime film, which is currently catching flack for “white-washing.” But is it really an issue? Listen to hear what we thought.

It’s 2 on 1 this episode, but you’ll have to tune in to find out who’s who. If you listened to the last episode, you probably already have a pretty good idea.

All this, plus Tom lets us in on what mechanical body augmentation he would go for, Kevin argues for his favorite Tony Scott movie of all time, and Joe learns how babies are made.

It’s Reel Spoilers 271.

You’ve been warned.

Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Kevin Brackett, Joe Buttice
Run-time: 1hr 1min
