Okay, I'm not imagining how bad ScarJo is in the trailers, right?

I saw a grand total of one expression, which I would term "slack jawed".

It fits the character, though.

I don't remember her being so blank, though I admit it's been awhile since I've seen it.

Edit: wasn't she kinda angry?

Edit 2: not RAEG angry, but irritated angry.

Half of me is giddy with excitement, the other half is apprehensive — if they screw this up … I am a huge Ghost in the Shell fan, the first two animated series are amazing, even better than the first movie. (To the degree that I was considering to name my future daughter Motoko, but my wife vetoed the suggestion. )
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

As someone more familiar than myself, feel free to opine on whether the expression in the ScarJo pic captures the Major.

Yeah, I know. It makes slightly more sense in my case since I live in Japan and my wife is Japanese. (My bosses first name is also Motoko, and she is quite like the major.)

Ahhh...

Then it actually makes a lot more sense. I wish it would've happened.

I managed to sneak one through in my family. Our second son is named River. Got it from Rivers Cuomo — just dropped the "s". My wife probably doesn't even know who Weezer is.

[EDIT] Forgot: his first name is Owen. It's also a western-style name, which my wife understands. The other part...nope. She would kill me if she found out.

I would have associated it with River Tam. If he starts doing creepy stuff or reading minds, let us know. We could make a fortune.
