i thought it was a fantastic movie. It's not the movie I would have made but I'm also not a film maker and I enjoy seeing other peoples visions. For those complaining about remakes and reboots, I hope you enjoy Star Trek this weekend.

for the most part the members on this site are so toxic when it comes to reboots/remakes. they are quick to jump on the "i hate remakes" bandwagon. especially to downvote a green post on a movie they refuse to give a chance.

This interviewer does a fine job. He's no Barbara Walters but this aint 20/20 either.

And if you gave this movie a chance and found it to be a papercut across the pee-hole?

I won't downvote anyone for liking it. That's something ten year-olds do.

I also don't think remakes are inherently bad. The RoboCop remake, I thought, had some really interesting elements to it and went different places than the original. If it weren't for the fan service, I would say it was about as good a remake as you could hope for.

The best I've heard about Ghostbusters is essentially that it "isn't that bad. I'll give it an 8/10". "Not that bad" shouldn't be a ringing endorsement.

I would call it as I see fit, but I would still give it a chance with an open mind and would not let my love for the original have any influence on my final thoughts of any remake.

As I've said in a previous thread

...and was thumbed down for. Idiots will pay to watch anything with a familiar logo attached to it.

Looks like I wasn't wrong.

What has happened to JOBLO. Its like it has turned into a propaganda machine. Calling anyone who didn't like this movie a long list of names usually ending with 'ist' . My glazzballs have had enough of this website. Wheres the cancel registration button?

It was obvious sarcasm when he said "This man is not a sexist".

And you're not going to cancel your subscription. You might not post on here anymore, doubtful, but you'll definitely not stop visiting the site.

I wasn't talking just about this post. Chris Bumbray has used the Misogony term more times than i can count, its a shame because I used to like reading Chris's reviews. But this site has definitely gone down hill. I have been using the site less and less, so watch me leave.

Giving the video a thumbs down.

I'm sure many people liked it, but mainly young kids and women were asked if they liked it. Of course young kids will say they liked it and most women, I assume, will say they liked it.

But what are you saying Bob? I saw the original in the theater and there were tons of kids there. Kids opinions don't count in a Ghostbusters movie? I assure you that kids made a big impact on the success of the first film. I'm not even going to address the women not counting part, because that's too outlandish.

"Kids opinions don't count in a Ghostbusters movie?"

I'm just saying that it's obvious that kids will of course like it because it has ghosts in it and fart jokes. That was a given.

Okay well yeah. They're pretty much a big part of the target audience.

Let's not forget that most of us fell in love with the franchise when we were kids.

Did these people see the same horrible movie I did? And which haters said women couldn't be funny? Not the ones with valid opinions.

When I was standing in line to get into my showing (last time there was a line that I've seen was for TFA), The 3D showing up the hall let out. People walking past were laughing and chattering about the movie. It looked pretty positive to me. In my own showing, which was full to the brim in my theater, people laughed all through the movie. I myself left right after the credits movie scenes were done (but before the credits ended and I missed the final after-credit scene). I was one of the
When I was standing in line to get into my showing (last time there was a line that I've seen was for TFA), The 3D showing up the hall let out. People walking past were laughing and chattering about the movie. It looked pretty positive to me. In my own showing, which was full to the brim in my theater, people laughed all through the movie. I myself left right after the credits movie scenes were done (but before the credits ended and I missed the final after-credit scene). I was one of the first out of the theater and almost everybody was still watching.

I think that's a good sign that overall, people loved the movie at two showings that I can vouch for.
