    The Ghostbusters remake is just around the corner and I really do hope that it does not do well in order for us to not get any sequels! A link below to a video is below, explaining in a short amount of time as to how Paul Feig and Sony both hate the movie and why NO ONE should see it.

    I'm going to assume that you don't know a good movie when you see one.

    Crap, I forgot Sony handled this movie. After the disaster that ended 2014 with them, it's hard to really get behind them. Even before that, they neutered Spider-Man with the third movie in the Raimi trilogy, took it upon themselves to reboot it unnecessarily before Marvel finally came in...to reboot it again. Crap man, and this will stand as probably the first black mark in Paul Feig's otherwise great filmography. The best way to make this movie a fail is if nobody sees it. Consequently I'll see it if it's on a streaming service to form my own opinion of it. If the box office return is so bad and is a fraction of this film's high budget, that will send the message that it's a failure and to never reboot beloved franchises. But with that 3D IMAX thing, suckers will buy that, and even if they like the movie or not, they still put in money towards the box office return.

    I don't feel they're trying to make a good movie for fans to enjoy, I don't think they're trying to nostalgia pander, or even appeal to feminists. At this point they're just trying to incite a bunch of fucking drama into the Internet.
    It's fairly smart too - all the "movie sucks" responses are considered "SEXISM!" or Trump supporters, ignoring any possible criticism past "the characters are female so it sucks" so all those same feminists will probably watch it... Then realize it fucking sucks.

    And, yeah, I'll jump on the "sexist" train here too - to be honest, the female cast does feel like a desperate pandering attempt. Rule 63ing all the main characters wasn't a good move by any means, and making them all female was bad as well. Star Wars did a nice job with having a diverse cast without inciting drama.

    I'm neither and already know this movie will be a shit show, just like every other reboot they have done in the past 10 years. Give up on the reboots, get new ideas.

    Trashed reboots from what I can remember.

    Total Recall
    Fright Night
    The Karate Kid
    Ghostbusters
    Ninja Turtles
    Spiderman ( Different story line if you read the various comics, so it was decent I guess )
    Fantastic Four
    Xmen reboot
    Poltergeist


    I'm sure there is more, just can't think of them.

    I am going to see because I am not a nostalgia blind manchild.
    If it turns out to be crap, then that sucks. If it turns out to be good, then I am glad to have seen it. Regardless, I am going to see it because it's worth watching.

    The trailer was more than enough to show it will be garbage, has nothing to do with them being woman.

    I've seen trailers that made shit movies look great and great movies look like shit. Judging a movie based on the trailer isn't a fair judgement.
    It also doesn't help that everyone is telling you it's shit. From the very first poster of the movie people have been declaring it shit, it didn't even make it to the first trailer before people were hating on it.

    Or maybe there was no reason to reboot Ghostbusters and the trailer looks awful? To be fair the previous rumours of a Ghostbusters reboot with Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell sounded just as bad.
    My point is you can't top Bill Murray + Harold Ramis + Dan Aykroid + Ernie Hudson. Now if on top of that you give the project to a director who clearly doesn't care about the francise, you're going to end up with a disaster like this one. Why not let Ivan Reittman direct it? He knows Ghostbusters better than anybody - hell, he co-wrote the first film, and helped polish Dan Aykroid's Ghostsmashers idea.

    Extreme Ghostbusters sucked too - but at least it didn't label anyone who refused to see it a mysogynist pig.
    Even then, Extreme Ghostbusters was a direct sequel to Ghostbusters, it had Egon Spengler and even Janine. It made sense for the old Ghostbusters to pass the torch to a new generation, even if this new generation was a bunch of annoying brats.
    You want a *good* example of women Ghostbusters being awesome without the franchise being shat on? IDW Comics.

    Expect people were excited for a reboot when they thought it would involve men. As soon as they said it would have an all women cast, then it was "unnecessary" and people started shitting on the movie.
    It would be one thing if people were hating on it after the trailer, it's another when people were calling it shit before there was even a piece of promotional art for it.

    Agreed. I haven't seen Bridesmaids, but I have seen The Heat and Spy. I did not like The Heat but Spy was AWESOME! Unnecessarily gross but still awesome. This movie though is just all levels of wrong.

    Except that's totally not what happened? I can tell you as a hardcore GB fan, nobody wanted a reboot. What everyone wanted was Ghostbusters 3 (which we got, sort of, in the form of the Ghostbusters game published by Atari), in which we'd hopefully see the original Ghostbusters pass on the torch to a new generation. However, everyone's hopes for that died when Harold Ramis passed away in 2014.
    Like I said before, I'm not against the idea of an all-women ghostbusters team. It was awesome in the comics, and had this movie been properly executed I would be hyped. Imagine the direction it could've taken the franchise. My biggest issue with this movie is not only that it's poorly casted, produced, and directed - but that it has no respect for the originals at all. Why go out of it's way to act like the original movies didn't happen? They easily could've made it a loose sequel - the original goal of Pete Venkman and Ray Stantz was to turn Ghostbusters into a franchise, after all.
    It's that kind of revisionist history that really grinds my gears as a Ghostbusters fan, and it's the reason I won't be seeing this movie, not even pirating it.

    Duh, money is the biggest driving factor. It's basically big news sites being like, Top 20 Reasons Why Men Are Pigs For Hating New Ghostbusters. Then the movie gets press. Bad press, but attention nonetheless. I'm sure they're overjoyed at the hate, just because it's got so many people talking about it. And really, having an all female team shouldn't mean much. Sure, it's bad that they didn't have the original cast, but so long as they have good writing, which the trailers don't seem to showcase then it would have been acceptable at best. People don't want the universe here, they want the classic actors that they KNOW are funny.

    Totally. I'm so sick of seeing rebooted franchise #9023324. There's so many good ideas and books to adapt into movies. Why waste time on a reboot, which isn't even catering to the original audience?


    Lolwat. Judging a couple of trailers might be jumping the gun slightly. But women-hating? Seriously? I don't care too much whether this movie sinks or swims, but from the handful of trailers that are out right now, it looks terribly unfunny. If some lame non-jokes are the best thing the editing team can put into a trailer, what does that say about the quality of the movie? It's because all these loud milennials that grew up with the original Ghostbusters are mad that they're not getting what they want, which is the original cast. It's like when people were pissed Shatner wasn't in the Star Trek reboot. Not due to people deciding to hate on women. :glare: Or maybe that's just all my INTERNALIZED MISOGYNY speaking.

    Um. Pretty sure people were pissed because Dan Akroyd and Bill Murray weren't going to be in the movie in a large capacity. Not because OH MAH GAWH THE WOMENZ ARE TAKING OVER MAH MOVIES.

    Imo, its not that its an all female cast or who the cast is, I think its the attitude of "Ïm making a new GB movie and Im not even gonna acknowledge the original ones". The Star Trek reboot, while a whole new timeline and story, they included Leonard Nemoy's Spock and that kinda gave that nod of acknowledgement to the previous movies / series. I think even something as simple as maybe having Aykroyd as Stanz at the beginning handing over the reins or selling them the rights, anything, would have made a much better movie from what ive seen and read. Like a sequel / reboot kinda thing.

    It's one thing to be disappointed, it's another to declare a movie is complete shit before it even has a promotional art for it.
    If the movie is shit, let it fail on it's own merit. Just because you are disappointed that you didn't get the Ghost Busters 3 that you wanted, doesn't mean the movie is going to be shit, on that fact alone.

    Rebooting Ghostbusters was a shitty idea, thank god there will be no Back to The Future reboot, ever.
