Feels like movies have been going through the femsploitation route like with blackspoitation back in those years that I don't remember.

The movie isn't even out yet. How about at least watching it first before saying anything? It might be bad or it might be good. You won't know until you actually watch it.

Thing is, does one want to submit his/her time/sanity to watch possibly rubbish production?There is a reason i read pre-wiews/trailers of some games i am goign to buy/movies i am going to watch.One can't get wasted time back,nor possibly sanity.Getting money is far easier than either of those. Another point to mention would be:"what have been seen,can't be un-seen". Have a cookie.

Okay, take a step back. Breathe. Now go watch the original Ghost Busters. Everything is gonna be alright. Stop acting like every iteration of any IP you liked has to appeal to you. Life goes on, it's petty to get so worked up over this stupid shit.


This whole comment is fucking stupid. You are wrong in everything. Now either ask why I have a problem with it or fuck off with the condescending presumptions of yours.

HOLY SHIT! The original still exists?! Who knew? Just ignore this if you hate it that much.

Well that's repellent, 40 seconds was about as far as I got. Had no plans see it in the first place, this just confirms it.

I never understood why this movie gets so much praise. I've tried watching it many times but can't get into it. Also why is the reboot getting so much hate?

Am I the only one willing to give this movie a chance? Plus this movie comes out on my birthday so it may be a nice a little treat for my birthday and my 1st celebrity crush is in this movie, Leslie Jones and I like because she's a freak.

Hey, I liked the Josie and the Pussycats movie, it was just as silly as the cartoon...plus I understand they crank this stuff out solely to keep the rights to the originals and keep the cash flowing.

However, I'm not a fan of the new Ghostbusters movie. But not for the reason you might think an old guy might be. The original was hysterical social satire that gets missed...the "bad guy" is a government regulator doing things when they have no clue what's going on, and the "heroes" are guys trying to make money off an idea for a business they had that everyone thought was idiotic, and end up saving the world with it. So we're looking at capitalism being the saving force of the world, there is NO WAY I can see the current crop of nuts in Hollywood making a movie that says anything bad about the government and good about capitalism, hence the movie is going to stink in my humble opinion. (Especially since the project has been advertised with a deliberate middle finger towards men since a bunch of nitwits started ranting against it being women leads, you don't want my money I'll keep it.)

As to the music, neither Bus Boys nor the Thompson Twins are on the soundtrack list so I don't care. It's your typical Sony crappy soundtrack, even sounds like the Broderick G.I.N.O. disaster. I couldn't take more than 40 seconds of that thing listed in the original post, all your digital beedeep stuff stinks today any way. ( However it's interesting that the Ray Parker Jr. Original is on the new soundtrack as "in the film" http://www.idolator.com/7637864/ghostbusters-soundtrack-zayn-malik-pentatonix-mark-ronson-passion-pit AND DeBarge???? )

I admit it's entertaining, and I'm always happy to see Rachael Leigh Cook. But if you look at it it's basically just Josie and the Pussycats superimposed over nearly any given episode of "Behind the Music" coupled with the intentionally obvious product placement gag from Wayne's World. It's a fun movie, but it's not a good one.

This is an objectively true fact that in no way reflects merely one person's opinion. Conform or die.

That's an interesting take on Ghostbusters, but I feel like I should bring up one thing: the regulator was right. He said the Ghostbusters' equipment was dangerous, and they admit both privately and publicly that it was. They said to each other that they were carrying particle accelerators capable of leveling city blocks if they even as much as accidentally crossed their streams on their backs. Their containment unit was polluting the surrounding area because their building wasn't up to code. They didn't have a pricing structure in place and kind of made it up as they went, so their business practices were shady at best even if you ignore all the property damage they inflicted doing the job. One of them even technically sexually harassed a client by flirting with her on the job. They defeated Gozer the Gozerian by sheer luck by taking a gamble on potentially destroying the city themselves.

The regulator was a prick, I'll agree. But he was right when he said their operation was totally out of control and a public hazard.
