    Chris maybe? you can give me some better insight here? I had just watched another video on this movie just before I watched yours. And in the video they made a point to mention the fact about the hot blonde chic from SNL being gay? What the hell? Can you tell me whats up with this with her and this film? Aside from just some trolls gay bashing? WOW! Peace Out!

    I can only hope and pray at this point that if down the road they make a second film. I so! really hope they make certain the second film is a hell! of a lot better over all. lastly yes I liked how all! the ghosts looked. And yes I feel all of the acting was just fine. Ill even go as far as to say good. Now from the other side of things yes my heart did and still does go out to all whom made and was is rather in this film. All of them whom were trolled to death over this film. And just plain bashed and smashed on line. come on guys. No matter how you may feel about one or some of the actors in this film. Or the director etc. In the end guys its just a movie. And if you happen to think its total shit! Then guess what you don't watch it again or buy it or its merch. Now one last thing here please! why do some people seem to give a flying fuck if the blonde on in the new crew is gay? What the hell does that matter or have anything to do with anything? Unless your just a straight up gay hater or woman hater or black woman dumb ass haters? What the hell's wrong with some people? ILL tell you what that blonde woman is still hot as fuck top me and can be very funny and seems to be and come across as a smart woman. And yes! to me shes smokin! hot in my book. In plenty more ways than just her look. Sorry I don't remember Her name right now off the top of my head. All I can do or say is as a major! Ghostbusters fan long! time fan and long! time major! collector. On behalf of myself and others like minded. So very sorry Ladies you had to deal with some some mind you major low life and has no life troll ass holes.

  • Dax Bradley
    Dax Bradley 29 days ago

    Wow, this movie is almost as divisive as Star Wars 8. Almost.
    On the receptionist being funnier this time, I agree with Stuckman. Hemsworth stole every scene he was in. The original receptionist was not written the same way, as the butt of a joke. Here they get away with it by reversing the old trope of hiring a bimbo based solely on looks. We are allowed to laugh because of the gender role reversal.
    Double standard? Yes. But I don't care, funny is funny.

    Wow. The movie was not that bad? It was funny? And you give it a C? You also rated Solo: A Star Wars Story with C and I can agree with that, but Solo is a far superior movie then GhostBusters. This was a terrible politically correct review.

    I hate when they change the original characters for the sake of diversity or SJWism. For example the new doom GUY might be a female in the new film. Motherfucker what? The name is literally doom GUY. It’s retarded, keep SJW’s out of all forms of media lmao.

  • Aaron Birtig

    Chris you're waaay too kind and missing the points in terms of all the hate.
    To begin with the characters were all way too over the top apart from a totally understated and missed Kirsten Weig. You make comments about Chris Hemsworths character being better than his counterpart from the original played by Annie Potts; completely disagree..Hemsworth with all his additional screen time played an embarrassingly stupid idiot for the girls to both laugh at and fawn over whereas Annie Potts played just normal chick trying to hold down a receptionist gig carrying a cerebral tone which garnered more understated laughs more in line with someone in her position. Kirsten Weig, hands down the most talented of the bunch was totally miscast to how her character was written and completely wasted in the movie. Leslie Jones wasn't bad however the direction and editing could have greatly improved her character/performance, whereas Melissa McCarthy and McKinnon were left to let loose with improv with results of being way too over the top cutting one another off, not letting jokes just sit to hit a mark, ultimately just not being at all funny and completely annoying beyond belief to point of just wishing they'd shut up. Andy Garcia as the mayor was another waste of talent as character written just to make another man look like an idiot; anyone could have played that role. The cameos were also nothing more than an absurd fan service distraction ultimately making me wish it were them I was watching in the jumpsuits...
    The plot lacked any originality whatsoever and the tone in which it was shot was just over colored saturation product placement vomit. Paul Feig is also a total narcissistic, over rated SJW crusader, without any sense of what makes real comedy and had no business writing and directing this POS movie that never needed to be made in the first place...
    "C+"?! Try a solid "F".. as in fuck this movie...

    Imagine a movie that was with only female cast, that was remade with entire male cast. Where every woman was either dumb, a slut or trashy and then where the director says that everyone that has an opinion on it that is opposite of what she thinks is an idiot.... then say that it didn't deserve the hate. To me, it deserves the shit it's gotten.

  • Αλέξης Ανδρικόπουλος

    It doesn't deserve the hate that it got, but it doesn't deserve the passes you give it or the money it made in my opinion either. For me, movies are something very important that should be done properly. Now tell me 1 thing this movie does well. 1 thing. Because NOTHING THIS MOVIE PROVIDES IS DIFFERENT THAN THE MODERN REBOOTS OF LITERALLY ANYTHING. It's, for the 1038483rd time, the most generic, bland, forgettable, unfunny garbage I spent hours on that results in nothing.
    The worst part is that nobody tried to make this movie be good as well, because that's not the point. The point is to make money. And this is why it stinks and doesn't deserve to take the treatment of other, actually good movies because it wuld just be sad throwing this thing in the bag alongside, let's say, Jurassic Park. That's just an insult to me, all of modern garbage cgi generic clusterfucks apply to this and I'm not going to go easy on such movies, just because of what they truly are made for.
    The same things Transformers: The Last Knight suffers from, this movie suffers as well. Big blockbusters based on a big title are just copy pasted products that either have the same cons or the same pros, with few exceptions when it comes to style, because big studios have the same damn goals and most of them, with some exceptions, just blow it. Sony is a prime example of that and Sony was behind this movie so behold, another trainwreck thanks to a big company in the movie industry.
    Now I do really respect your opinion and your way of viewing reboots because you're one of my favourite movie reviewers (and my favourite movie reviewers are like 2 so yeah), but I have to dissagree that this movie is better than Ghostbusters 2. Ghostbusters 2 has a critical and major difference: The people making it cared for Ghostbusters, not for the money. Not entirely at least. The outcome was far better, despite the similarities the script shares with the first movie. This movie suffers from the exact same mistakes as Ghostbusters 2, including the script being similar, plus more mistakes and poor overall scenes, plus all of this trying to hold a movie together by playing it safe and involving famous actors and family friendly pg clean fun that has nothing interesting.
    This is clearly another "Transformers defence" on a movie, it's just that Transformers fans were a lot more.

    I honestly don't know how you can praise this movie even a little bit because it was so bland, boring and nonsensical, just white noise that it's not even worth talking about. Sure it's not as bad as Dragonball evolution or anything like that but at least there was something there to talk about, here everyone is just so boring all the jokes fall flat and the script is some Frankenstein amalgamation of just complete shit. Not to mention that it's just a product of these hyper political sjw reactionary corporate Stooges let's see everyone flying about women's rights on the news and start thinking oh hey let's just f*** everything into Oblivion and make that all women. Didn't mean to get angry but I stand by it. It's just a product of the studio wanting to cash in on what they think is a massive movement that will make them fucktons of money

    I like how the people are calling males sexist despite the film not really being a male franchise. I like how they say males say females can’t be leading roles but males acknowledge Wonder Woman. Kill Bill, Underworld, Lara Croft:Tomb Raider, Charles Angels, and most likely Captain Marvel (Along with others people can name).

    It's not quite as bad as people say, as it makes for an okay kids movie. I can see little girls liking it. However, it's still pretty lame and is devoid of the frights and laugh's which would hold older audience members. I also think it's slightly worse than GB II. I didn't really see the chemistry between the characters. I got a feeling there were a lot of ego's on set. It also pushed a lame "Girl Power" agenda. The special effects weren't even that good.

    You forgot to mention that only one of the original two creators of the Ghostbuster movies was willing to make this movie The Other thought till his dying day to keep this moving from being made actually tried to make it for 10 years but one Creator refuse to sell his rights said he would worried that they would shame the Ghostbusters franchise and I think you was right and his family should never sold the right so they can make the movie

    All of this butt puckering "feminism" and other irrational agendas are sweeping into things we should not allow such as entertainment, in this case films. This tells me that studios are attempting to make profit even off of the mental cases, which is as I said butt puckering to folks such as myself that are still sadly sane. I say sadly because at this point I think I much rather be insane rather than have to be continually bombarded with stupid OR worse turn my brain off to be able to cope. As a woman I found this movie to SUCK cheese and corn. The OG was fun and humorous, this was pure trash.

    I'm just reading through the comments and seeing people miss the fact that the men in the movie were a parody on women's roles in most films in the past. Like I don't want it to become the norm but I'm not gonna lie when I say that people's reactions to this are the funniest part of the film.

    • Razor Falcon
      Razor Falcon 4 months ago

      Steve Smith the director did weird things regarding this movie. He said that but also said anyone hating on it is misogynistic. And I didnt mean the risk of comedy in just this movie. I meant all comidies run the risk of seeming stupid. A lot of the controversy and backlash also comes from people who didn't even watch it. Personally I found the movie a numbing type of enjoyable, but am aware it isn't for everyone. The jokes weren't brilliant and you're right about Hemsworths character for the most part, But I don't think he's something to get hung up on. I believe this review even said that him being dumb eye candy wasn't even accepted by the other characters.

    • Steve Smith
      Steve Smith 4 months ago

      a weird risk considering the backlash the director knew the film was going to get no matter what
      I'm pretty sure he also said the movie wasn't going to take any gender jabs, it would just be a straight forward ghost busters film that just happens to have women.
      Hemsworth character could have been a great gender swapped character parody of female receptionist hired for their looks if they hadn't taken him to Patrick Star level territory. at that point, it's more like the joke is that he's mentally handicapped

    The Ghostbusters themselves, I think that the characters were not well defined and the actors deserved better.
    Cameo's for cameo's sake. Crying out loud you had Charles Dance and used him only for about 5 minutes!
    Jokes fell flat all the time.
    I honestly think that the film could have been so much better, the cast is great,but the script, whoever thought this script was good needs sacking immediately.
