Description:

Before Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman, there was another big female led film in Ghost In The Shell, starring MCU's Black Widow Scarlett Johansson. It didn't go over so well, primarily because of one factor: narrative invisibility. In today's episode of family friendly show Anatomy of a Failure, let's take a deep dive into Ghost in the Shell and try to pinpoint the problems in invisibility in storytelling. It's not a Netflix anime adaptation film, but still here we are.

Ghost In The Shell (1995)
In the year 2029, the world has become interconnected by a vast electronic network that permeates every aspect of life. That same network also becomes a battlefield for Tokyo's Section Nine security force, which has been charged with apprehending the master hacker known only as the Puppet Master. Spearheading the investigation is Major Motoko Kusanagi, who -- like many in her department -- is a cyborg officer, far more powerful than her human appearance would suggest. And yet as the Puppet Master, who is even capable of hacking human minds, leaves a trail of victims robbed of their memories, Kusanagi ponders the very nature of her existence: is she purely an artificial construct, or is there more? What, exactly, is the "ghost" -- her essence -- in her cybernetic "shell"? When Section Six gets involved in the case, she is forced to confront the fact that there is more here than meets the eye, and that the Puppet Master may hold some of the answers she seeks. But little does she know that he has been seeking her as well.

The Hype Is Real For These Epic Upcoming DC Movies
The Hype Is Real For These Epic Upcoming DC Movies

Thumbnail Image by Bosslogic → https://www.instagram.com/bosslogic/ Over the last few years fans have watched the Justice League and the wider DCEU come together, but that's only the beginning of Warner's plans for Worlds of DC domination. So just what is there to look forward to in the years to come? Here are a few of the most exciting DC movies slated for release. In July 2018, Warner Brothers announced that Joaquin Phoenix had signed on to star in Joker, a standalone feature exploring the origins of Gotham's Clown Prince of Crime from director Todd Phillips. The internet took a moment to scratch its collective head, then voiced a fair degree of skepticism particularly after a short teaser surfaced showing Phoenix looking pretty much like he normally does, albeit wearing some Pagliacci style clown makeup. Phillips, a director known mostly for his comedy work, promised "a gritty character study" and a "cautionary tale," which only seemed to add to the skepticism. Then, in April 2019, the first teaser trailer dropped and the skeptics fell silent probably because their jaws were on the floor. Joker looks to be a dark film anchored by a ferocious performance from Phoenix. It's also the first of Warner Brothers and DC's promised attempts to tell filmmaker-driven stories outside Extended Universe continuity. While speculation has run rampant that this will connect to Matt Reeves' forthcoming The Batman, Phillips has insisted that his Joker is strictly a one-shot, and a unique one at that. Suicide Squad may have been a bit of a mess, but it at least featured a solid take on fan favorite Harley Quinn. There are multiple projects on tap for the character, but first up is Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), which has been described as an "R-rated girl gang film" in which Harley teams up with Huntress and Black Canary to face off against Black Mask, who is chasing after a young Cassandra Cain. It sounds like pretty dark stuff, but Margot Robbie has explained that the film's mouthful of a title was meant to reflect the fact that the it'll be a bit more lighthearted than it might appear. Keep watching the video to see more upcoming DC movies that are going to blow you away! #DCEU #TheBatman #JusticeLeague2 Joker | 0:18 Birds of Prey | 1:34 Wonder Woman 1984 | 2:27 Flashpoint | 3:24 The Batman | 4:29 The Suicide Squad | 5:21 Aquaman 2 | 6:32 Black Adam | 7:32 Green Lantern Corps | 8:14 Justice League 2 | 8:54 Man of Steel 2 | 10:00

Mortal Engines — The Curse of Size | Anatomy Of A Failure
Mortal Engines — The Curse of Size | Anatomy Of A Failure

by Filmento

Mortal Engines is a movie that became one of the biggest box office flops in recent years, losing over 100 million dollars. As a film, it arguably has a myriad of problems, but perhaps the biggest problem of all has to do with its obsession with size. In today's episode of Anatomy Of A Failure, let's take a closer look at Mortal Engines and compare it to Lord of the Rings, in order to see what pitfalls exist when launching a massive epic action fantasy franchise, and how to avoid them. https://twitter.com/Filmento This is a good movie visually, but that might be the only positive. We'll see what happens with Mortal Engines 2. At least we have a new Joker movie trailer and Avengers Endgame to look forward to. Music: freemusicarchive.org/music/Broke_For_Free/ #Filmento #AnatomyOfAFailure #MortalEngines - Mortal Engines Director Christian Rivers’ post-apocalyptic fantasy-adventure film is an adaptation of Phillip Reeve’s 2001 steampunk novel of the same name. In a dystopian future where entire cities have been motorized and placed on wheels, a mysterious young woman sets out to correct the course of human civilization and to discern the reason for her mother’s murder - The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring New Zealand filmmaker Peter Jackson fulfills his lifelong dream of transforming author J.R.R. Tolkien's best-selling fantasy epic into a three-part motion picture that begins with this holiday 2001 release. Elijah Wood stars as Frodo Baggins, a Hobbit resident of the medieval "Middle-earth" who discovers that a ring bequeathed to him by beloved relative and benefactor Bilbo (Ian Holm) is in fact the "One Ring," a device that will allow its master to manipulate dark powers and enslave the world. Mortal Engines Honest Trailer. Everything Wrong With Mortal Engines. Frodo is charged by the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) to return the ring to Mount Doom, the evil site where it was forged millennia ago and the only place where it can be destroyed. This movie lost over 100 million. Watch Mortal Engines online. Mortal Engines Full Movie. Watch full movie. Accompanying Frodo is a fellowship of eight others: his Hobbit friends Sam (Sean Astin), Merry (Dominic Monaghan), and Pippin (Billy Boyd); plus Gandalf; the human warriors Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Boromir (Sean Bean); Elf archer Legolas (Orlando Bloom); and Dwarf soldier Gimli (John Rhys-Davies). The band's odyssey to the dreaded land of Mordor, where Mount Doom lies, takes them through the Elfish domain of Rivendell and the forest of Lothlorien, where they receive aid and comfort from the Elf princess Arwen (Liv Tyler), her father, Elrond (Hugo Weaving), and Queen Galadriel (Cate Blanchett). In pursuit of the travelers and their ring are Saruman (Christopher Lee) -- a traitorous wizard and kin, of sorts, to Gandalf -- and the Dark Riders, under the control of the evil, mysterious Sauron (Sala Baker). The Fellowship must also do battle with a troll, flying spies, Orcs, and other deadly obstacles both natural and otherwise as they draw closer to Mordor. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) was filmed in Jackson's native New Zealand, closely followed by its pair of sequels, The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003). -
