    Chris, I love your reviews but I had to watch this one twice before posting because I was about to lay into you. I was expecting this movie to end up with it's own Hilariocity but I will give you a pass for not seeing the original as a child. The original has almost the same influence on me as Back to the Future and the Nolan Batman movies. The reboot Ghostbusters storyline, horrible dialog and song and dance finale does not earn this movie a "C" in my opinion. It caters to idiots who can't follow a plot or live without a fart, dick or vagina joke every two seconds. Every interaction seams forced and it felt more like a sequel to Scooby Doo 2002 than ever being connected to the original. The original was not a tongue in cheek or slapstick movie. The CGI in the first film was more realistic to me too. That ghost in the library will forever haunt me. Like you I really enjoy the all the actors, but not in this movie. And the hatred toward a specific gender you pointed out is almost disgusting to see in a movie made in this century. This movie deserves a big fat "F". I'd love to see it redone even with the same actors. Better storytelling and less stupid humor.
    You still rock so I won't be unsubscribing anytime soon. I'd actually like to watch you do more in depth on the technical aspects of a movie or even full length commentaries.

    How can you hate this movie without being sexist 🤔 but come on be original. Sadly there will always be a double Standard, if women want to make movies that aren’t romantic comedies or chick flicks I think that’s great . But come on stop rebooting movies like the oceans movie, be original for fuck sake !

    What I don't get is who's funding them in the movie!? In the original they sell Ray's parents house... And then it's mentioned that their eating the last of the petty cash... 🤔 In this movie not one of them is getting paid yet they somehow afford all the stuff to make new weapons and travel, rent, food and! Bloody hire someone! 😂 This movie is a mess and unfunny

  • the Greatest American Negro

    Essentially you said they were man bashing in the film. Giving the appearance that men are idiots or pussies. Sounds like the movie deserves some hate to me.

    i dont consider computer graphics to be an improvement. i see computer graphics as cheap and lazy. so i therefore think of movies that use computer graphics as trash. i do like some movies that have computer graphics obvioulsy. but in these times when catch glimpse of computer graphics i either put it back on the shelf or click the back button on my netflix. after playing online games all day the last thing you wanna do is watch a movie with cheesy cheap computer graphics. i throw my money at people that build REAL things.

    Well as a big fan of the original movie, I think it' s a cult for many people, I think I will never see this one. It is not about sexism, I think those actress are very talented but not for a movie that is like something very special in my mind. As a big fan ( I saw the movie in the 80s when I was a child, born in 1984 ) I wanted to see something different. I hoped to watch something like this: a movie with Aykroyd, Murray and Hudson involved in the project, probably with Eddie Murphy ( he was choose also for the first ) maybe other good commedians like Ben Stiller, a good director and a new story connected with the original and Weaver. The second movie was not the same level of the first, but with those great actors was still funny. Everything about the first Ghostbuster is a cult in my mind. I still hope someone will make a movie like that.

    I finally watched Ghostbusters... and I dont get how Chris Hemsworth was offensive to men. Im a man and the film was just a good comedy like the first film. New ghostbusters go through a lot of the same arcs except its more friendshiped themed while Ghostbusters 84 kinda just went with the gears.

    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!

  • Dominic Giorgi
    Dominic Giorgi 2 months ago

    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

    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.

    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.

  • Alex A

    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.

    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.
