Ghost of Itself

Ghost in the Shell (1995) a groundbreaking, subversive piece of Japanese anime, gets a live action redo with Scarlett Johansson sporting a form fitting flesh suit and a bunch of plot enhancers aimed at making the story more humanistic and straightforward.

Best Belle

Wonderful animated musical from 1991, becomes part of the Disney Live Redo of a Beloved Animated Movie assembly line with a big budget effort starring Emma Watson as the iconic Belle and Ewan McGregor as a CGI candelabra.
