Paul Feig is bringing us deep into the Supermodel Snowpocalypse

Paul Feig continues to earn the benefit of the doubt for each new project he involves himself with, considering he hasn't made a stinker from the lot of them to this point. They all turn out to be surprisingly funny, which is why I'm intrigued he has chosen to participate in SUPERMODEL SNOWPOCALYPSE.

Feig is only producing the film under his Feigco banner, and, on the surface, the title seems like something you'd catch as a Syfy Original when you have nothing better to do on your Sunday afternoon. However, the story at the heart of the film is based in truth... and it most definitely is about supermodels stuck in a ridiculous snowstorm. 

Paramount has picked up the rights to an Elle article subtitled This Drug-Fueled, Multimillion-Dollar Supermodel Snowpocalypse Has Been Fashion's Best-Kept Secret Since '77. A group of Americans traveled to Chile for a photoshoot, and, soon after landing, were met by a massive blizzard. Attempting to make lemonade out of lemons, those stuck at the mountain ski resort turned the place into a Studio 54-type environment.

However, after two weeks without working phones and only the second floor windows providing a way out, the American group hatched a plot to get the hell away from the frozen tundra and back to their lives. 

This one is certainly different, and the fact that it's a true story makes it even weirder. Who knows how this one will develop under a different director, but I'll be keeping my eye on it. 

In the meantime, Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS is still playing in theaters.

I paid and saw Ghostbusters in the theater...

I was actually surprised as to how horrible Ghostbusters was. I mean I laughed maybe twice throughout the whole movie. After reading the critics boost this thing up, I entered with an open mind and expected mild entertainment. The critics are LIARS. Kate McKinnon was annoying and definitely did NOT have a breakthrough performance, Kristen Wiig played borderline catatonic, and the jokes didn't land, at least for me. Humor is subjective so I guess people can laugh at what makes my ears bleed. I

Paul Feig gets a lot of shit...

But he's a good TV director. He's worked on some of the best TV comedies ever; Arrested Development, Bored to Death, The Office, Freaks & Geeks, Parks & Rec, 30 Rock, Nurse Jackie, Weeds, etcetera etcetera... If you watched TV in the last decade there's a great chance you love something Feig was apart of... So remember that Interneters. That being said, his movies aren't for me. This sounds like an interesting premise, but he's a lazy day Netflix or not film director for me and always has been.

Hmm. Feig's Ghostbusters was... admittedly kind of fun, but as a comedy it just fell flat. The one thing most people liked in it was Kate McKinnon, but she's basically just playing a one dimensional cartoon character. Chris Hemsworth's Kevin was amusing, but it gets old fast. They should have swapped McCarthy and Wiig's role around because Wiig is really not funny and McCarthy was wasted in a supporting role. The only character I actually liked there was Leslie Jones' Patty. She feels more like

Heck, I think Wiig should have gotten Jones' role (rewrite her as a lonely librarian or something that's more in her alley), Jones get McCarthy's role, and McCarthy gets Wiig's role.

Just watched ghostbusters

Someone posted a camversion, i usually never watch any of those but i only spend money on movies that i think deserve it(like star trek last saturday)
Bad camversion aside, wow!what a bad movie it was.
Lazy story, constantly screaming unfunny people and boring. Did not think it would be this bad. As a ghostbusters movie its not worthy but even if it was a movie on its own it wasnt good, not even mediocre.
But then again, i never like Feige's movies.

I didn't see GB.
I did, however see Bridesmaids (3/10), The Heat (4/10), and Spy (4/10 - three of those points are for Jason Statham). I blame him for those movies.
Freaks and Geeks, however... well, it's obvious there were other writers to keep him looking good. That must be it.

Just what we need...more Paul Feig. The first sentence of this article got me looked at by strangers because I started laughing so hard in public.

I find it funny that you say Feig's movies are all funny. LOL
I'm glad he's producing. Maybe it won't consist of really bad "ad-libbing" and off-the-cuff improvisation, which are about as funny as a hot poker pierced through the pee hole.
But I could be wrong! I have been before. It was tough for me to admit that, after years of bashing Buffy, I watched the show and admitted it was one of the best things I've ever seen on TV. So... perhaps?
