The long and short of it boys and girls, GO SEE THIS MOVIE ASAP. The clips of this movie online or TV do not do it justice, the only way to see this movie is on the big screen. Its a much better movie than the first film, though not quite as entertaining as the television series, Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex, which FYI will be airing on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim starting in November.

If you're talking about one of those "Game Doctor" type things that "buffs" the disc, the video store I used to work at had one. It ruined every disc it touched, so we quit using it. So, I've had just bad experiences with them.
