    S.A.C. 2nd GIG 

    A close sequel to the acclaimed Ghost in the Shell anime series, the events of 2nd GIG begins shortly after the reforming of Section 9 and premieres with their debut. Japan’s prior executive cabinet had dissolved, and is now headed by the new Prime Minister. Political stability hangs on a hinge as tension builds between the Japanese government and refugees from China thanks to the targeting made on refugees by the mysterious terrorist organization known as the Individual Eleven. But all is not as it seems on both sides of the conflict, and Section 9 faces a dilemma that could end in civil war fueled with weapons of mass destruction.

      I actually really enjoyed all the filler-ish episodes. It helps to build the world’s details even more. Still, yea agreed that some of the side character spotlight episodes were unnecessary. As for the villain, he is indeed pretty obvious, but the plot is still complex even then.

      Anyway, great review! I loved this series too.

    Greetings, Programs!

    Usually when you see Hollywood reboot a classic franchise from over twenty years ago, you’ll find yourself with a palm on your face and lacking a sigh. We’ve all seen too many greats ruined over the last decade and it’s taken its toll on all of us; consider Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Halloween, Transformers, G.I. Joe, and The A-Team, to name a few. Where is it that they’ve gone wrong?  Well, the developers of Tron: Legacy sure seem to have it all figured out. The sequel to the 1982 classic remains true to the original without being afraid to take a few leaps and bounds of its own. If you haven’t figured it out already, I loved this movie.

    It would seem that the majority of people (that is, the majority that isn’t simply eating up everything they’re shown) have lost faith in reboots that it would seem that even the briefest mention of one has critics sharpening their teeth. But something about Tron: Legacy was different, and that allowed it to be the perfect update for the new era of movie-making and computer technology. So, enough build-up! Lets get into why this long-awaited sequel was so deserving of the classic Tron. (More …)
