Ghostbusters Thread

Recommended Posts

I want this to be huge to prove you don't need hot model looks to get a hit movie. Don't get me wrong, Kate McKinnon and Kristen Wiig are attractive but they purposefully hid it in this.

Two things:

1. The beginning made it seem like it's a sequel, not a reboot. I'm confused on that now.

2. It's a terrible trailer. The pacing and slow music doesn't mix well with the comedy.

Kristen Wiig wasn't doing a whole lot for me in the trailer. Everyone else had me interested in this. We'll see. Not sure if I'll catch it in theaters yet.

After watching it again it I guess I just didn't find the funny parts very funny. I'm not bashing the movie, just the trailer. I'm still hoping it will be good.

Confession Time: I have never actually seen the original Ghostbuster movies. I watched the cartoons all the time, especially Extreme Ghostbusters, which I have fond memories of.

This looks fun to me. I like a group of women carrying a type of action film. It doesn't look all that funny, but as a movie I'm interested.

We live in an age where guys hide behind the sanctity of Ghostbusters to hate on women, despite Ghostbusters having been franchised to hell already.

Really enjoyed it! It's a film with plenty of homages, but takes a different enough story path and incorporates the science and quartet-dynamic better than the original(s). I still prefer the original film, but this film was delightful, even without the welcome/obligatory cameos.

Also heeded the advice of some board members here and stayed until the end. Upon the last line, a guy in my screening proclaims "NO. NO. NO I haven't been so annoyed about ruining a franchise [sic]. Apart from Fantastic Four". To which I resisted openly calling the guy an arsehole with every fibre of my being.

I picture her as the Ray, with Wiig as the Venkman.

That's pretty much spot on, although McCarthy was top-billed, which maintains my belief that Paul Feig exists solely to make McCarthy a movie star. Which is in no way a slam on McCarthy at all (she's very good here) but Wiig's character is clearly the main protagonist.

I think the pacing could've been better in the very beginning and somewhere in the middle, but there was something to laugh or smile at through most of the film. A lot of these moments came from, of course, Kate McKinnon.

Also I appreciated that Leslie Jones's character had a nerdy side that elevated her beyond a stereotype. 

Chris Hemsworth was great as well, although they're gonna have to either minimize him or give him something else to do in the sequel.
