By sheer happenstance today’s episode is all about American remakes of popular and well regarded Japanese franchises from the 1990s. Grant starts things off with his thoughts on the new American Power Rangers film. Then its off to the Cineplex and back again for our review (at 38:22) of the new live action Ghost in the Shell film starring Scarlett Johansson. Sorry about the crap audio quality during the pre-review part; we didn’t notice my mic problems until after the fact.
Finally, forgot to mention it on the show, but there’s currently a Kickstarter to fund the international Blu-ray release of Masaaki Yuasa’s incredible debut film Mind Game — don’t miss your chance to join the cool kids club!
