Ghostbusters

The horrendous racist and misogynistic backlash and ridiculous levels of fan entitlement leading up to the Ghostbusters reboot have been unprecedented, in my lifetime at least. The Paul Feig directed reboot has reared its head in GH and I guess you could fault it for a number of things, mainly the canker of mainstream Hollywood continually leeching off the past. However, the one thing you can’t fault this film for is humor.

Ghostbusters (2016) - Movie Review

I'm sure you know the story by now. They're remaking Ghostbusters, the trailers sucked, nothing about this movie looks good, they're ruining my childhood, yada yada yada. Whatever the reason is, this movie has been one of the most hated films to hit theaters in recent memory. I personally loved the original 1984 Ghostbusters, but I still went into this with an open mind. How did it hold up? Let's settle this right now and break it down.

Ghostbusters

It was a phenomenal reboot of a beloved franchise. SNL's Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon killed their roles. Also SNL's Cecily Strong as the mayor's secretary was a great choice.

'Ghostbusters' Takes $17.2 Million on Friday Box Office

Paul Feig's female-led Ghostbusters reboot has taken the top spot at the Friday box office, with $17.2 million. — While the numbers aren't huge, matched up alongside its $144 million budget, it's still a reasonable opening, and Feig's films have historically slow-boiled their way to solid takes by the end of their run. It is currently on track with projections.

I Ain't Afraid Of No Reboot

The reboot to one of cinema’s shortest but most beloved film franchises has been mired in infamy since its announcement. The fan backlash has never been quite this incensed by what they believe to be personal vandalism. But the articulation of their argument is lacking. Curiously they’ve chosen the shrewd marketing aspect of Ghostbusters to specify their dissatisfaction.

"Ghostbusters" Review

When Hollywood said - “We Need Another Reboot” - Who Did They Call? Ghostbusters! — Paul Feig (of "Bridesmaids" and "Spy") is the co-writer and director behind this female-led modern re-telling of the “Ghostbusters” story. And - I know the HATERS aren’t going to like hearing it - but this is a worthwhile fresh take on the original, complete with memorable moments and plenty of laughs.

Ghostbusters Animated Film Gets a Director

Ghostbusters Animated Film Gets a Director

Much in the same vein as Spider-Man, Fox seems to be implementing their own formula to their franchises, in which they release live-action and animated films to cater to different audiences. Ghostbusters is the second of which to get the treatment, which seems an odd choice to say the least.

Time for the new team

Time for the new team

Who you gonna call???? A new cast! It's reboot season and what better way to start it off than a all female ghostbusters cast. I am a child of the 80's and loved the original movies. I was ready for a bran new movie with the older ghostbusters cast but than again it would be odd watching old men chase ghosts. So a reboot is adequate in that sense. I normally am not a fan of reboots unless its totally necessary...''Point Break''
