so, not many interesting things have bean going on since blade runner this year so I was browzing netflix looking for something to watch and found a show called altered carbon. I am not really sure what I think about it but I was wondering if any of you had watched it. it feels like a mix betwen ghost in the shell and blade runner with a couple weired extra things added. if you have seen it, let me know what you thought.

I did enjoy it after a few episode (2-3), but it was nothing spectacular. There were way to many throwbacks to the original Blade Runner (the balcony scenes, the Hello Unicorn backpack, the soundtrack containing a cover of White Zombie's More human than human, the general cityscape...). The fighting was similar to Equilibrium(???) and the VR was Matrix.
Is it just me or does Martha Higareda look like Noomi Rapace from certain angles?
Definitely have to check it out.... i liked Ghost in a Shell, including the Live Action version and Anime, i actually saw the 2017 version again Tonight ;)

It's good, and a lot better than Ghost in the Shell, IMHO, which had some fairly dreadful CGI.
It's based on a Richard Morgan novel, but the producers have shamelessly ripped off ideas from William Gibson's Neuromancer multiple times, which I find a bit annoying. He should get his lawyers on the case.
