This week on the Daily Grindhouse Podcast, Jon, Mike & Freeman discuss the controversy surrounding the big-budget remake of 1995’s anime classic, GHOST IN THE SHELL. The just released film has come under fire, accused of “white washing” the main character of the original by casting Scarlett Johansson in the part and like everybody else, the Daily Grindhouse team have opinions on this. Is it whitewashing or is it regionalization.

Lest you fear that the show has gotten too serious, the boys also dive into 1983’s MICROWAVE MASSACRE, MALIBU HIGH, and Macon Blair’s directorial debut I DON’T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE as well as MACROSS and Syfy Network’s THE EXPANSE.

Check out this episode!
