Ghost in the Shell (2017) Film Review

Greetings POPPERS! The live-action film Ghost in the Shell is receiving very questionable reviews, so we had to watch the film ourselves to see if it lived up to the essence of the Japanese manga created by Masamune Shirow. The premise is complex at times, so let’s discuss it, and then we’ll get to the good stuff!

Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell(2017) POP Bag Review 

This fantasy/science fiction/action film takes place in the future where humans are able to insert their “ghost” into a cybernetic body, also referred to as a “shell”.  These turned cyborgs have been given enhanced abilities, such as increased strength, vision, and intelligence. Who is the mastermind behind this technologically advanced method you ask? It’s the leading research and development organization called Hanka Robotics and it’s genius Dr. Ouelet. Now, they have successfully created a cybernetic organism for the first time by implanting the brain of Motoko Kusanagi in a “shell”. Motoko’s body was injured so badly that only her brain was salvageable. As a result, Motoko’s brain was inserted into a shell instead of having an AI built, which left Motoko to become the first successful man-machine hybrid.

Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell

Dr. Ouelet decided to give her a new identity as a counter-terrorist operative named Major Mira Killian to help keep Hanka Robotics from outside threats; however, the now Major Mira Killian, is experiencing glitches after her first mission due to Dr. Ouelet keeping some of Motoko’s memories stored in her brain. As more “glitches” take place, Major Mira Killian begins questioning her memories, especially after she learns that there was a prior experiment that “failed”, which goes by the name of The Puppeteer. With similar cybernetic attributes to that of Major Mira Killian, The Puppeteer informs Major Mira Killian that the drugs she is taking, as instructed by Dr. Ouelet under Hanka Robotics’ orders, is suppressing her true memories.

Now, let’s move on to the amazing scenery of the film. The scenery throughout the film was absolutely awe striking. The aerial shots of futuristic Tokyo with 80 ft. tall holographic geishas and orange koi fishes swimming circles around giant office buildings, painted a realistic picture of a bustling, technology-centric metropolis that could very well be Tokyo in the distant future. It felt so authentic yet so outlandish – in the best way possible. This highly updated, future-fied version of modern day Japan was a beautiful contrast to the bleak, gray-scaled setting seen in the less affluent parts of Tokyo.

The industrial, whitewashed cement, technology-barren apartment buildings of run-down Tokyo was a tragically beautiful sight to see against the pixelated images of the city that the audience was used to. It was magical! The moments of silence in the movie were the most amazing we have ever seen in a film. There’s one scene in particular, of a geisha silently walking down a hallway at a chillingly slow pace with no intelligible background noise. The silence of the scene, the swiftness of the geisha’s steps, and the haunting feeling of the hallway she is walking down set a tone of pin-drop silence, perfectly setting the audience for the forthcoming calamity.

There are countless moments in this film that incorporate various authentic facets of the Tokyo culture, while also accomplishing the storytelling goal of the film. From the crowded hustle and bustle of Tokyo, to the tech-centered city and its inhabitants, to the typical Japanese caricatures of geishas and other eastern images – the film absolutely transports the audience to a realistic look at what Japan could be in, say, 300 – 500 years (?)

Aside from the great special effects and scenery, the film stayed true to the concept and theme of the original Ghost in the Shell with all of the fighting scenes, the creation of Major Mira Killian, and the thought-provoking story that questions the more-machine and part-human complexity. However, we get the feeling it slightly missed the mark, and didn’t live up to its predecessor.

Ghost in the Shell wasn’t a bad movie . The original manga focused less on spectacle and more on its philosophy, while the live action version focused more on the special effects and went deeply into explaining everything that was happening instead of just delving into the philosophy of the movie. If you look at the movie on its own, it is just another Hollywood action movie set in the future that gets deep sometimes but not enough to make a lasting impact. While the original Ghost in the Shell developed a cult following, it lacked a wide appeal so some changes were made; therefore, it became more Americanized to make it more palatable towards American audiences, which we personally believe detracts from the movie and takes away from the things that made the original so great.

No matter the outcome, the live-action film for Ghost in the Shell is well-done, and we definitely recommend you watch it! It will certainly put things in a more realistic perspective, and will entertain you, so visit www.cinepolisusa.com to purchase your tickets today and get ready to be fully entertained. If you are in NYC, then visit Cinepolis Chelsea Cinema for a epic movie experience!

Megpies: Artisan Tarts with LOTS of Heart

Megpies Tarts

start your day right with this jam-packed tart

In 2007, Meghan Ritchie was selling pastries on the front stoop of her Brooklyn home. Now, about 10 years later, Ritchie’s jam-filled, flaky hand pies can be found gracing the shelves of local Whole Foods and 7,500+ participating Starbucks locations nationwide. Richie’s tarts, known officially as Megpies, have quickly grown from a small, one-man operation into a beloved sweet treat with an adoring and active fan base.

Megpies at Starbucks

 As Megpies continues to gain momentum, praise, and popularity, it’s clear that there’s no stopping them and their journey to the top. With that said, The POP Bag is extremely excited to be a part of the Megpies journey as we welcome them into our POPPING family. We have teamed up with them to bring you two (yes, TWO) one-of-a-kind opening night film events – more on that later. First, we need to answer: what is a Megpie…?

In short, Megpies are 4-inch, flaky (but not too flaky), frosted hand tarts filled with tons of delicious jam. With flavors like Strawberry, Cinnamon + Brown Sugar, Chocolate, and this season’s flavor, Cherry, there’s a Megpie to satisfy any type of sweet tooth craving. However, Megpies as a business is much more than their delicious tarts. It is the hard work and dedication invested by Meghan Richie and her boyfriend, Paul Jones, to get their sales from 300 to 3000 a week in just 6 months. Megpies is the commitment and resilience by both Richie and Jones, which led to Starbucks placing them in a few select NYC stores, then 30 locations, and now every single Starbucks-operated store in the United States. Megpies is not just a collection of delectable tarts; it is the 10+ year story that got them here.

Megpies Founders

It sounds too good to be true, right? Then come “jam” with us at our opening night event for Kong: Skull Island this Friday, March 10th at Cinepolis Chelsea Cinema in NYC and taste Megpies’ Cinnamon + Brown Sugar tarts (YUM!) Our event begins with the 5:30 pm show – while supplies last – so head on over here to purchase your tickets now!

megpies cinnamon & brown sugar tart

Make sure you’re following us on Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook for more information about our upcoming opening night event for Beauty and the Beast (March 17th), where you can get Megpies’ Strawberry jam filled tart!

Have you ever tried Megpies? They are delicious fruit-filled tarts. Check out our review.

A Look at King Kong

A new Kong is in town. The King Kong franchise has been rebooted, this time in a film called Kong: Skull Island. In this film, we will see the secretive organization known as The Monarch find Kong on Skull Island, battling against the Skull Crawlers for wiping out his kind. The Monarch is ready to fight him and all the others but while there, realize he is the one that needs to be saved. Before this new film hits theaters Friday, we should revisit some of the past Kong movies.

King Kong 1935 Movie PosterKing Kong (1933)

The original King Kong featured an unforgettable score from Max Steiner. Filmmaker Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) set out on Venture to film his latest project. Without a female lead, he ran into Ann Darrow (Fay Wray), who agreed to join him for the adventure of a lifetime. Also along for the ride was Jack Driscoll (Bruce Cabot), the first mate of the ship, who ended up falling for Ann. Little did Ann know that they would be heading to Skull Island, where she was abducted by villagers and offered to Kong. He also fell in love with her and protected her from all other creatures. As Kong was captured and brought to Broadway, he broke loose to find Ann, whom he took on a final rampage throughout the city, eventually scaling the top of the Empire State Building  and was killed by a military plane. The sequel, Son of Kong hit theaters 9 months later as a continuation of the first but was not as popular.

King Kong 1976King Kong (1976)

The first remake of the film saw a bit of a plot change. This time, oil company executive Wilson (Charles Grodin), set out to a hidden island he believed to have untapped deposits of oil, which would bring fortune to his company, Petrox Oil. Paleontologist Jack Prescott (Jeff Bridges), was a stowaway on board, wanting to see the island himself and warned them of the dangers of going there. On his way to lock up, he spotted a life raft with unconscious actress Dwan (Jessica Lange), who was aboard a directors boat that exploded. We saw similarities to the original film when the natives abducted Dwan in the middle of the night and offered her to Kong – who fell in love with the beauty & protected her. Kong was also kidnapped and taken to New York and put on display. When he thought that Dwan was being harmed, he broke free and ended up killing the oil executive in the stampede. He then took Dwan to the top of the Twin Towers, where he was eventually killed. Again, a sequel, King Kong Lives was created in 1986 and was not well received.

King Kong 2005King Kong (2005)

This remake aligned most with the original from 1933 and starred Naomi Watts, Jack Black, & Adrien Brody. Filmaker Carl Denham hired small time actress Ann Darrow to star in a film, which she agreed to after finding out her favorite playwright, Jack Driscoll was the screenwriter. The ship became lost in fog and landed on Skull Island, where Ann was kidnapped and offered to Kong. Plot remains the same as the first two, ending in Kong getting killed after being made into a spectacle in NYC.

Our favorite has to be the original. Which one is yours?

Looking forward to seeing Kong: Skull Island? Why not see it with us this Friday, March 10th at Cinepolis Chelsea, where you can grab a sweet Megpies Tart. Event begins with the 5:30pm show and continues while supplies last. Purchase tickets here.

We All Screamed for Van Leeuwen Ice Cream

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream TruckLast week, we had a bit of Spring-ish weather in NYC. Down coats were off, boots were put away and of course the wool hats and scarves were back in the closet. Although it was only for a few days, it was a chance to take advantage of the beautiful weather and just breathe without unnecessary accessories and cold wind. Because of the change in weather, we thought it would be nice to have a yummy treat – ice cream! Yea, yea yea, you can eat ice cream all year round but when the weather is nice, it just makes it oh so much better. We decided to try Van Leeuwen Ice Cream in salted caramel and oh man it was good. Even our smallest POPStar couldn’t keep her spoon away.

Van Leeuwen started out as a food truck on the streets of NYC, selling ice cream made fresh in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with just a few ingredients – milk, cream, cane sugar, and egg yolks. They also have a vegan line of ice cream as well made with house made cashew milk, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic cane sugar, pure cocoa butter, and organic carob bean. Organic, fresh, & natural – what more can you ask for?

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream

Now back to our flavor of choice – the salted caramel. It was creamy, caramel flavored and sweet – without being overly sweet. The Maldon salt adds more oomph to the flavor. We enjoyed it and will continue to purchase it and are looking forward to trying additional flavors. Ours was purchased at a local Whole Foods but you can find this deliciousness at one of their stores in NYC & LA or check with your local grocery store. You can learn more about Van Leeuwen here.

Have you tried Van Leeuwen ice cream before? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

We’re Howling for Alpha Wolf

Do you ever have trouble focusing or get bombarded with mental fatigue and a sugar crash, no matter how many coffees or energy drinks you consume? Well, guess what, POPPERS? We have discovered a no-frills drink that will restore your faith in the focus-promoting beverage market. They call themselves Alpha Wolf and The POP Bag is delighted to have them back for another POPPING opening night event. This time they’re here for Inferno, which is pretty fitting considering that Alpha Wolf fires us up.

Alpha Wolf logoLet’s get something straight before we continue: Alpha Wolf and is NOT an energy drink. To be precise, Alpha Wolf is a vitamin-enhanced water beverage that naturally promotes focus without the sugar-induced crash of energy drinks and coffee beverages. With naturally derived caffeine, antioxidants, vitamins, and amino acids, Alpha Wolf is the type of beverage that your body wants you to drink.Alpha Wolf Drinks

Alpha Wolf was created by founder Michael Chalavoutis who, while studying for the MCAT, was struggling to balance his workload with his busy social life. Michael created Alpha Wolf for himself and for all determined and hardworking individuals so that they can finally fortify their bodies and promote focus through a natural, convenient product.

Release your inner wolf this Friday, October 28th at the Cinepolis Chelsea Cinema. Separate yourselves from the pack and try the four exploding flavors that we will be offering:  Fruit Punch, Lemon, Passionfruit Pineapple, Goji-Pomegranate Mango. Learn more about this event here.
