In 1995 Ghost in the Shell directed by Mamoru Oshii and based on the manga by Shirow Masamune was released, since then it's become something a cult anime classic. When I watched the film as a kid, I found it to be a bore, it's deeper questions asked about life and what makes us human was lost on me. Similarly the same year I watched Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, which I also found to be boring and its more minutiae details lost on me. Where both films featured action and cool sci-fi worlds, they asked deeper things of the audience. The 2017 film based on Masamune's manga is none of these things and it's boring to me for all the wrong reasons.
