Weekly What To Do: It's Mostly Movies

Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie
Nov 11 and 16
Multiple Theaters

In the cleverly I'm not going to write that.

(Muffled sounds)

No, because it's stupid. They couldn't come up with a new title?

Uh, I thought this was the four new specials put together. I was a wrong, it's a theatrical release where the Major must find out who killed the Prime Minister of Japan. Dammit, Funimation marketing, please be clearer with this stuff. Now I missed the LA premiere. Ehh, should be good.

Anyone notice we're getting a lot of anime in theaters this year.

Enjoy the cyberpunk prequel series to the series you watch on Toonami, because prequels.

No wait, not what you think. This film is a messed-up love story of an older woman with an under-age boy, who happens to be really good at the arcade game Kung-Fu Master!
For those gamer history buffs that happens to be the game that started arcade beat-em-ups. Without it no Turtles in Time no nothing. Odd choice. Yes, the film is of course French.
Cinefamily invites you to this year’s edition of Found Crap, hosted by Rob Schrab.
