The new Ghostbusters trailer is out if you have not seen it.
I LOVED the first Ghostbusters. I got a Ph.D. in Psychology because I wanted to be just like Peter Venkman. (well....sorta). It is one of the few movies I consider to be "perfect". It hits every beat and there is not a wasted moment on screen.
I think this new movie looks great.
Here. Let me say that again. I think this new movie looks great.
I said as much on the Youtube site and I have been bombarded with so much ire that I can't quite get what the hell these people are thinking. I have been accused of being a.) a bot. b.) a Sony employee. c.) a Sony bot. d.) a woman e.) a lesbian but mostly f.) an idiot. In fact the comments got so bad that someone (either YouTube or Sony) deleted them all. I still have the emails though.
I have read some of the comments on this too and frankly, I am dumbfounded.
I am no fan of random off the cuff remakes...but this is that. This feels more like a sequel or reboot.
Plus it is also an idea I have been hearing about for 20+ years. Restarting with a new generation of Ghostbusters. It worked for Ghostbusters Extreme. Hell it worked great for the Next Generation. Seriously, what the hell is the problem here?
(Reads more comments). Oh. Seriously? People are bitching about an all female cast?
I really only have one thing to say about that.
Grow the fuck up people!
Your whining and bitching about this "ruining your childhood" makes you sound like whiny children.
Your complaining about this being some "feminist agenda" makes you sound like a neanderthal and a stupid one at that.
I am going to watch this movie. Likely I am going to enjoy it. But whether it is good or bad ultimately will depend on the script and the actors involved. NOT in the fact that it's a remake or an all female cast.
Plus Kate McKinnon can do no wrong in my mind. It should be good just because she is in it.
