Look at it from my point of view:

If they keep cranking out shitty Ghostbusters movies, eventually, one time, they might accidentally make a good one just by random chance. Roll the dice 10,000 times and something decent might happen.


Judging by how it's worked for the Terminator franchise, I say that's very, very unlikely.

The Ghostbusters trailer reminds me a bit of Tammy. The trailers showcased incredibly stupid jokes (robbing people is funny, see?) and made me wonder what the heck the people who made the trailer were thinking. Actually, I heard the movie is just as stupid as the trailers, so I have to wonder what the heck the writers were thinking.

There's like 7 billion people opposed to this film, and the producers are still releasing it ? :?

At least a few people will come for the name recognition. At this point it's more costly to shitcan it.

Let me state for the record that the reason this movie will suck is not the female cast. It stinks because it's trying to take an original idea and turn it into a formula. It would have been just as bad if it was a bunch of dudes. 95% of the jokes would probably be the same as well.

BryanM wrote:
The comedy video on the sidebar "Why this movie will be bad" had a good point about writing this as women pretending to be men.


This may be an inside joke that I'm totally missing here.

Here's the problem with these anti-feminist dudes. They always start out with a good point, (Yeah, only little boys pretending to be men stand like that), but end up being too greedy and going over the deep end, (my idea of making the whole movie about four women realizing they're not cut out for men's work then selling the business and becoming stepford wives only sounds retarded because the feminists have brainwashed you!)

If this guy is being sarcastic and I'm falling into the jaws of the bit, I cite Poe's Law in my defense.

Mouser Minion, think your empathy detection circuits are a bit off.

Genuine misogyny and satire of misogyny are different things! The acting totally gives it away.

Ah, you've reminded me of this.

With all the years and years and decades of endless joy and entertainment the Star Wars prequels have brought us, I never want them to stop making Ghostbusters movies. Ya'all convinced me.

This film looks amazing.

Oh wait, I'm being sarcastic.

At least the first one is well-executed.

I'd say it just barely works. Still far too much fucking around with teen comedy hijinks, toilet humour, muh feels etc. As with the third and fourth, when it's about giant robots warring the fuck out it's good fun. The second's absolutely unbearable.

It's often said Michael Bay makes "mindless entertainment." This is obscenely underserved praise!

The first Tranformers is the only movie i ever walked out of. Can't imagine how bad the rest of them are.

The robot fights are not good fun because they move and transform in complete defiance of the laws of physics like it's the matrix, evaporating the appeal of giant robots.

The plot of Pacific Rim is pretty fucking stupid but at least the giant robots in THAT movie bring a visceral sense of weight and inertia.

And if you truly want "mindless entertainment" that doesn't fuck around for two and a half hours trying to be the poor man's American Pie, your movie is "Crank 2."

Oh hell naw. Transformers have long proud history of jumping around doing gay+unrealistic flips while maiming each other during times of conflict. They're not Gigantor-esque behemoths ala PR's Jaegers. Doucheface "OHHH NONONONONO" McJewfro singlehandedly destroying Starscream via hilarious pratfall etc is not robot fighting, ofc. (it is closer to venereal disease)

Also, ffs, pls don't misconstrue my post as conferring the honour of "mindless entertainment" on Bay. His TF movies are the very antithesis of the form. Ducking scything jets of highly pressurised dog shit aka "comic relief" / "down-home family drama" between fleeting snippets of robot violence is actually quite mentally draining. I was tired and irritable after the fourth movie, having been reduced to finding joy only in Pothead McGingerscrote getting fucking carbonised by a robot grenade. :[

I had mixed feelings about the first live action Transformers (weak human scenes with disappointing robot designs, but with Peter Cullen's awesome voice and some fun robot scenes) and never cared enough to watch any of the other live action movies. If by "the first one", you mean the animated movie, then I agree it's well executed.

Maybe not the best movie to quote, but I feel that Ghostbusters parody in the Casper movie does a nice job of summing up the new GB trailer. "Who you gonna call? Someone else!"

For prosperity's sake: I fell asleep in the middle of this thing and had a nice hour long nap. That puts it in the same league as American Godzilla Movie 20XX.

The most I could ever have hoped for.

Am I the only person who thinks 2 hours is too damn long for a movie?

GB - 107 minutes
GB: ATC - 134 minutes

It was an ok nap, though. Not as good as the Hollywood Godzilla 2 nap. Might have been because the colors were too vibrant or the dialogue too neverending.

3 out of 5 nap points.

I haven't actually seen the movie yet but I'm going to watch this first because I absolutely loved his reviews of the Star Wars prequels.
