Alita handled the adaptation of the source material so much better.

Which is not saying much. A:BA is gorgeous to behold and has some truly wondrous set-pieces, but any time the characters open their mouths, it's obvious that this is a cheesy international port of a very typically cheesy anime. It's as if a whole host of anime writers went to the same school of horrendously bad dialogue and hand-holding exposition.

Controversial opinion, but I actually prefer Alita over Ghost in the Shell. Alita may not be the deepest or most original sci-fi film, but it was genuinely fun and I even found a couple scenes somewhat moving. Ghost in the Shell tries to be a much more profound meditation on what means it to be human, yet it all came off feeling very cliché and pretentious to me.
