Ghostbusters 2016. No Review. I refuse.
May 17, 2016 at 1:28 am
I completely agree with this. Even disregarding the fact they’re making this an excuse to shoehorn an all female cast.
I’m pretty annoyed at the whole situation.
Fully support your decision to not even give this cash in the money to talk shit about it. Just a plain “nah, I don’t dig it”.
Good shit dude, thanks for addressing it in your style.
May 17, 2016 at 1:29 am
There are some typos through edits of it, please forgive.
May 18, 2016 at 1:23 pm
And this is why women hate you fanboi wankers. Stupid fucking crybaby cunts.
May 18, 2016 at 7:58 pm
cry moar colin
May 18, 2016 at 9:19 pm
Fuck right off, Colin.
May 19, 2016 at 1:41 pm
You are not going to get laid by being a white knight, it turns women’s pussys dry dude
May 22, 2016 at 11:56 am
so women hate people for not wanting to see a film? hate gladly received then 🙂
June 1, 2016 at 6:52 am
I’m surprised that they didn’t use the characters of the new ghostbusters cartoon. It has nothing to do with the fact that they are all female, its just we’d been teased for so long about a ghostbusters 3 that never happened and its sucks.
May 17, 2016 at 5:48 am
They should’ve at least choose funny female comedians, this cast is b-class and for comedy that means unfunny people.
May 17, 2016 at 10:52 am
The overweight girt whome I assume is supposed to be Ray? She looks like that girl that always got picked on by the cheerleaders. You may as well give her a pcoket protector. I also want to say that Winston was mild-tempered at best. And they didn’t paint the herse PINK. There is so much about this movie that I am going to hate, I refuse to bother watching it. My brother is on his own if he goes to see his atrocity.
May 17, 2016 at 6:16 am
Please don’t make this sound like the problem with the movie is the sex of the main characters. A terrible movie and a shameless knockoff shouldn’t be able to ride some kind of “war of sexes” hype train. It shouldn’t be “chauvinistic woman-hating fanboy geeknerds versus feminist cool guys”.
So please don’t rant about the sex of the characters, as that is COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT. It COULD be a totally great movie with an all-female Ghostbusters team. It’s not. That’s the problem, not how many penises are featured under the costumes.
May 17, 2016 at 6:32 am
I don’t have a problem with the gender of the characters. I have a problem that they’re MAKING it a problem. It’s classic Nixon-style politics — amplify the dissenters to paint yourself as the crusader. Yes, stupid people are saying stupid things about the cast. The producers are basking in it.
So, I guess it’s about women being put in action hero roles after so many decades of patriarchy. I can’t think of a better way to change that than. . . model their characters after men from the 1980s? Wait, what?
How about women forging their own paths? What offends me about this film isn’t that there’s women in it. Or even that the women are the protagonists. It’s that it’s going backwards 30 years in time and calling itself progressive. There’s a HUGE backlog of ORIGINAL female characters waiting for their spotlights but they go with this. Where’s my Metroid movie FFS??
May 17, 2016 at 8:33 am
well said dragonchild you must be a carpenter because u hit that nail square on da head!
May 17, 2016 at 9:00 am
I’m going to take that to mean you’re totally on board with a Metroid film.
Not that it would be totally original. . . it’d basically be “Aliens” with powered armor. But, hey, “Aliens” with powered armor!
May 17, 2016 at 10:02 am
Dragonchild, you’re totally right and this is well said!
May 17, 2016 at 10:55 am
If they had just kept the movie like the original, even get GOOD female actors and not women straight out of a lifetime man-hater movie. You know, then I’d be okay with it. Don’t paint the herse pink, or any of that BS.
May 17, 2016 at 1:55 pm
DRAGONCHILD – well, when this thread starts with Dan Rogers making the sex of the characters a problem, your words ring kind of hollow.
May 17, 2016 at 2:40 pm
No Joe, it’s the point. Stupid people are saying stupid things. We can’t stop them, but we can avoid making them relevant. Speaking of which. . . nice going.
I’m speaking for myself. That’s all I can do. If MY words are hollow because SOMEONE ELSE said something stupid. . . well, that’s pretty much the way this movie’s being defended. There are non-zero misogynists in the world, ergo, your point is invalid.
Cinemassacre was the target of some pretty stupid shit over the years. YT getting flooded with jokes about Mike’s dick, and some asshole who tried to make a scandal of. . . gosh what was it? Cheetahmen? It was really stupid. What’d they do? They ignored it. That’s really all you need to do if you want to make a movie.
Do you remember they gender-swapped the protagonist of the Silent Hill movie? No one seemed to care; it was pretty well received. I’m sure some women-haters had really mean things to say about it but no one remembers them because they just ignored the idiots and made the fucking movie.
May 17, 2016 at 6:15 pm
I do take a problem with the sex of the characters. You don’t just take a old classic movie and change the sex of all the characters. Why not make you own movies with all females instead? Do they not have confidence that it will work, they have to take a preexisting popular movie and change it?
May 17, 2016 at 6:30 pm
I agree, with Dragonchild. My problem with the all female cast is they’re clearly doing it as a marketing gimmick. The whole thing comes across as them turning a gender-swapped fan fiction into a high budget feature film.
Also, I’d love to see a Metroid Movie.
May 17, 2016 at 8:20 pm
With all the female main protagonists in movies and video games these days, it seems absurd to make this debate.
May 17, 2016 at 8:47 pm
Sorry but SONY made it the central issue by deleting reasonable critiques on both their Youtube trailer pages and leaving the misogynistic ones up just as “Evidence of sexism”. Then there’s their little retalitory collaboration with media outlets out to make any critic riding against this remake look and sound misogynistic. Even Paul Feig has deigned to open his big mouth and lambaste Geek Culture for their response. SONY wanted a war, make it a golden opportunity.
May 20, 2016 at 11:46 pm
..or maybe they’re making this movie with these 4 women cause they are freaking hilarious? (maybe not so much Melissa McCarthy anymore). Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are just hitting their stride, and even though Kristen Wiig may not be knocking em out of the park anymore, i’m guessing she still has some gas left in the tank.
May 22, 2016 at 12:08 pm
Here’s a list of examples of why the claim that this film is hated because of a female cast it bullshit.
Alien franchise (ripley)
The Terminator (sarah connor)
Halloween (laurie strode)
Assault of precinct 13 (Leigh)
Nearly very slasher ever made
Underworld, doomsday etc etc etc.
The list goes on and no one seemed to have a problem.
Why do people have a problem with the ghostbusters? Because it looks shit. And there are a lot of complaints from people that we can’t judge a film by a trailer. SO i’ll counteract with this. The whole point of a trailer is to get us interested to see the film. If it doesn’t do that, then it fails.
July 18, 2016 at 8:23 pm
Geeez, get out of the basement and breathe some fresh air. Saw it, loved it, laughed a lot. The original cast all had cameos and had fun with it, even Harold Ramis was represented. The original was beloved but not sacrosanct . Great cast, It was good fun then and good fun now.
October 8, 2017 at 1:33 am
How about you get out of the closet and quit being a cuck? Nobody has to do watch the movie. The movie had funny moments but, it was garbage. Quit your bitching and move on.
May 17, 2016 at 1:30 am
I somewhat agree with you here James. There is too much CGI in this, or at least it looks like too much. Also from the trailer it looks like the comedy is not even smart at all. IT looks like they are throwing the jokes in your face and saying “ok idiots time to laugh now” instead of being smart comedy. Also Leslie Jones is pathetic token black character that is just not funny, not intelligent, and worst of all not funny. Winston wasn’t a token black guy he didn’t play a “Black” guy he was just a normal dude he didn’t have to play on the fact that he was black. Ghostbusters is my fav movie ever and has been since 1984. I will see this but I don’t have high expectations for it and I hope I am wrong but I’m sure I won’t be. Also yes after Harold died it was over also Ivan Reitman was on board at one point so I was onboard with Ivan Reitman, Dan Ackroid, Harold Ramis, and the rest. But getting a whole new cast especially female which shouldn’t matter but I don’t like that studios now feel they need strong female characters and different ethnicities. It’s silly they don’t need it it shouldn’t matter. God I’m pissed now as I”m typing this. I hope I’m wrong but I fear I’m not.
May 17, 2016 at 1:51 am
Don’t you think minorities would want to be better represented in movies (and other things)? Don’t you think some women would be tired of seeing only powerful males while females are restricted to weak and submissive roles? Don’t you think different ethnicities would be sick of never seeing people like themselves in movies (making them feel more excluded and disrespected) or portrayed only in negative roles? Seems obvious that studios should try to include more minorities.
That said… I don’t think a movie like this is the way to do it. I agree that it looks quite bad.
May 17, 2016 at 4:03 am
Have you watched GOT?
Plenty of powerful females there, Some franchises also have very strong female characters as well.
As far as im concerned, the public in general doesnt have a problem with minorities in protagonist roles, if the movie is good, people will see it.
The studios are the ones to blame, as you pointed out.
What they could have done here, is to start with the remaining members, before hell breaks lose, and shitload of ghosts appear, the ghost of Eagon somehow manages to scape from wherever he is trapped and contact the rest and tells them that they need reinforcements, then introduce the new cast (which may or may not be a full female team), but as it is right now, no thank you.
May 17, 2016 at 4:06 am
I find GOT really, really misogynistic, to be honest…
May 17, 2016 at 4:32 am
lol Sun Glitters is one of THOSE people who can’t watch TV because it triggers him.
May 17, 2016 at 11:00 am
Or maybe, *gasp* Sun Glitters has an actual opinion. Woe unto him!
May 17, 2016 at 8:54 pm
Wouldn’t it be a better idea to write fully-fledged, intriguing characters who happen to be a minority instead of forcing a minority in there or changing a character’s gender/color/ethnicity for the sole purpose of appeasing those minority audiences? Whatever happened to integrity in storytelling? It seems we’re all to accepting of screwing it up in the name of affirmative action and political correctness.
May 18, 2016 at 12:44 am
The only reason you’d ever have to “force” such things is when your story is so male-centric or white-centric to begin with. Yes, having minority characters should come naturally, but for many people it won’t because they care only about pushing their own gender or ethnicity.
May 18, 2016 at 3:59 am
You know, I can’t reply to your response to me below so I’ll post it here:
“The only reason you’d ever have to “force” such things is when your story is so male-centric or white-centric to begin with. Yes, having minority characters should come naturally, but for many people it won’t because they care only about pushing their own gender or ethnicity.”
You know how incredibly ironic and hypocrtical you sound? In one breath you complain about people pushing their gender and ethnicity and then in the next you think its reasonable to force a gender and ethnicity into a story if it’s “Male-Centric” and “White-Centric”. Clearly, you don’t care about good storytelling. You care about forcing your ideological agenda and ruining that artform in the process.
Here’s a suggestion: Get off your rear end and write your own story with only minority characters if you care so much about affirmative action. Quit forcing characters in because white people and males make you blush.
May 18, 2016 at 2:40 pm
My point is I just don’t usually find it necessary to have all white male characters, and diversity makes it more interesting anyway. If you’re writing about rural Appalachia or something, then it’s okay (and probably necessary) to have all white characters (as one example). If you’re writing a story about made-up superheroes, I just don’t see any reason why you’d need to make them all white males or something. I guess I might have sounded unclear above, and I apologize for that. You can write all white male characters if you want but I just think it’s nice to consider other types of people.
And I actually am a big writer… Diversity works for me, it comes naturally, makes my stories more interesting like I said above. I guess I feel like some people might make it a point to have all white characters (they could actually be racist), and sometimes I think minorities deserve to be superheroes (or whatever else).
May 18, 2016 at 4:35 pm
Here’s the thing though:
If you’re a big writer, then you obviously must know about another rule in storytelling: Characters EARNING their development through hardships and obstacles.
Nobody DESERVES to be a superhero in a story, if we’re going by your example. They have to EARN that moniker even if, by some freak accident, they’ve inherited powerful abilities and talents. That includes minorities. Put them to the test, make sure they’re not flawless individuals, ensure they learn from their mistakes. And for god’s sake this really is a major pet peeve with me in terms of stories featuring strong, female protagonists if they physically hurt or say something nasty to their male support, make sure they take the consequences for it. People aren’t perfect. Just because they’re minorities doesn’t make them any less prone to the darker characteristics of human nature as “White men” are.
But I respect your clarification. Thank you.
May 18, 2016 at 10:05 pm
I agree with all your points there. And I definitely don’t like women beating up on men or minorities beating up on whites. It could happen in my writing, but I wouldn’t glamorize it (or the other way around). I also agree that every character needs flaws and has to overcome obstacles to get to a certain point, etc. I have written about many flawed female and minority characters.
May 25, 2016 at 4:39 am
Yeah, because you’re the arbiter of what people should feel about representation. The problem is, you want to base an entire movie based on sex and race, and everyone else around you wants it based in quality. The real bigot ends up being you. Further worse still, you’re so obsessed with this “power figure” ideology that you seem to think you can just plaster over well established and developed characters with another person, with the key factor being they have a vagina and things will just work out, and that they will inherit the merits and fill the shoes of the previous movie. There is nothing stopping minorities from being represented and they are represented if you follow the media that interest them. The fact is, not everyone is interested in a movie just because someone has the same skin tone as theirs, or the same genitalia. And what negative and restrictive roles? You’d have to back that up. Studios should include what ever demographic they want and that sells. They have no obligation to anyone. If you think there is some mass cover up and society racial issue in movies, they go fund and put together the movies in the market you want to see. I’ll give you a hint though, you cant just swap in for minorities and get a good movie out of it. Your ideology is a very vocal minority, and maybe you should seriously rethink some of your life choices.
May 17, 2016 at 12:51 pm
I liked your comment very much, until you said “I will see this…”
May 17, 2016 at 9:48 pm
in the original, i never once saw winston as a token black guy. just a character from the cartoon. in this female version, i see an outlandish ghetto black woman, along with other stereotypes rather than just focusing on comedy specific to the characters.
May 17, 2016 at 1:34 am
Right there with you. They’re spitting in the face of my childhood and laughing all the way to the bank.
May 17, 2016 at 12:54 pm
The director even insults the fans, it says how much he cares.
May 17, 2016 at 5:53 pm
it’s probably because dipshits like you don’t matter
May 21, 2016 at 1:57 am
Don’t Matter? heh we will see about that after opening weekend of this piece of shit.
May 17, 2016 at 1:36 am
I love that you would do a non-review like this, you’ve shown us so much about Ghostbusters already, but it’s not enough!
May 17, 2016 at 1:37 am
Oh sweet god, I can’t wait to hear about The death of Ghostbuster’s 3 from you, James. I’ve heard rumors and speculation from others, but hearing it from someone I respect as a filmmaker, an artist, and a nerd, I gotta go grab the popcorn.
May 17, 2016 at 6:02 pm
As a journalist who did a non-review of A Christmas Story 2 (https://dwilsononline.com/2012/12/09/a-christmas-story-2/), I totally understand. I also agree with you, James.
May 17, 2016 at 1:38 am
This is your review. And you haven’t even seen it.
Huge fan of yours, but I think I’m done now. Very disappointing.
May 17, 2016 at 1:50 am
It literally says it’s not a review in the title of the video.
He’s not reviewing it.
That’s the point.
May 17, 2016 at 1:57 am
I’m disappointed by this too.
May 17, 2016 at 2:02 am
Did you read the title part, where he says ‘no review, I refuse’? He also justifies why really well, in case you didn’t actually watch the video
May 17, 2016 at 3:34 am
You didn’t even watch the video, moron. Good riddance.
May 17, 2016 at 4:01 am
May 17, 2016 at 4:07 am
You sound like you might be a bit empty-minded yourself.
May 17, 2016 at 4:16 am
May 17, 2016 at 8:22 am
I’m sure he cares about you and your triggering
May 17, 2016 at 1:39 am
I did that with the fant4stic movie of last year
May 17, 2016 at 6:43 am
Why? It’s been remade so many times. It’s a fantastic movie (pun wasn’t initially intended).
May 17, 2016 at 10:24 am
Fantastic 4 whom?
May 17, 2016 at 1:44 am
The movie is a joke, which is fine but there are right times and wrong times for jokes. You dont serve starving fans shit on a platter and say here you go, just what you wanted hehe. No, you do it after they’re full. When they dont have a need for more. It feels like a money grab timed wrong.
May 17, 2016 at 1:45 am
You know, I am gonna be the elephant in the room and say that this Ghostbusters movie might actually be good. Will it have the lore of the originals? Probably not, but the cast is a solid one, the leading ladies in this film are all hilarious so they can probably hold their own.
Will I see it? Probably, I mean it could be a lot worse than what the trailer shows, and it could be even better.
May 17, 2016 at 2:00 am
I’m really looking forward to it and I’m 35 years old. Not just some kid who has never seen the originals. Maybe it will be good, maybe it won’t but it’s getting some crazy levels of vitriol that I really don’t think it deserves to get before anyone has even seen the movie.
May 17, 2016 at 8:23 am
lol no, one of the cast is good the rest are not.
Be an elephant all you like, this is an abomination.
May 19, 2016 at 10:46 am
Compelling argumentation, Dicey!
May 17, 2016 at 11:18 am
The leading ladies are anything but hilarious, sorry.
May 17, 2016 at 1:46 am
If you somehow manage to watch the movie, you could just drop the G in AVGN for an episode and make The Nerd review it. This would be a cool episode where you could tweak the intro song so it was about bad movie reviews. I bet it would be a fun episode to make and you could have a cameo from someone. Hint hint.
May 17, 2016 at 1:53 am
Well he wouldn’t really have to drop the G since AVGN already reviewed TMNT 3.
May 17, 2016 at 1:48 am
honestly james i completely agree with everything you say except for one point. the not paying fan service the film has confirmed that dan akroyd and bill murray and possibly even sigourney will make appearances so its not fair to say its not doing any
May 17, 2016 at 2:09 am
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Signorney Weaver, Annie Potts and even the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man make cameo appearances, but they’re playing different roles.
I think the biggest reason this film will suck is they tried to shoehorn in a PC ideology instead of just telling a good story. People who love Ghostbusters don’t care what genitals the actors have, but the producers of the new one seem to think it’s important. Audiences aren’t stupid, they can sense this. In addition to the FX looking terrible and the jokes in the trailer being worse then dad jokes, people don’t like being told they should like it because it’s un-PC not to. In essence, the producers are implicitly telling us, you better like the Grrrl Power meta-message of this film, or you’re a bad person.
May 17, 2016 at 2:03 am
PC is just another term for being inclusive, and respectful of differences.
And when minorites are already excluded and disrespected in a society, it’s good that movies try to be more inclusive and respectful. It’s one small thing they can do to try to get people to view others more fairly.
May 17, 2016 at 3:10 am
I don’t think this movie is trying to be PC anyway, considering the stereotypical black character.
May 17, 2016 at 4:33 am
Oh God fuck off.
May 17, 2016 at 4:35 am
May 25, 2016 at 4:44 am
You’re being disingenuous if you can’t see that’s why some extremist left have their panties in a bunch calling everyone who is disinterested a bunch of misogynist.
May 25, 2016 at 4:47 am
And the constant ad hominem attacks. They are broken people.
Also, PC is cancerous. All these people care about is their wrongly acquired statics and quotas. Equality has never been their goal. This is pretty self evident if you spend even a little time looking at this believe from any form of critical reason.
May 17, 2016 at 3:57 am
And yet here you are focusing on their genitals more so than the *ASSUMED* focus the producers have. Irony at its greatest here, folks.
“you better like the Grrrl Power meta-message of this film” and that about sums up your bias and says all that needs to be said about who you are.
May 17, 2016 at 7:19 am
Except that Aaron Little is right. I don’t mind that the cast is female. I embrace it. I actually lobbied for it when they were sloshing around the idea of a sequel.
But the trailer was a disaster. And since then, the creators have been going around accusing anyone with anything negative to say about it of being misogynist.
It worked. I could go on all day about all the awful tropes I saw in the trailer but we’re talking about this instead.
May 17, 2016 at 3:01 pm
I agree with your points Dragonchild; however, there ARE people who state they think the movie looks horrible mainly because of the female cast, even in this comments section you can find those people.
May 17, 2016 at 7:17 pm
Oh, of course there are. I’m not disputing that. But Aaron Little isn’t necessarily one of them, at least based on the above comment. Neither is Rolfe. And here’s EB wasting time attacking the wrong people. I’ve seen that so often I’m sick of it.
There ARE people hating on the cast for being female, yes. Those outraged over THAT — as well we all should be — need to GO AFTER THOSE FUCKERS AND NOT THE PEOPLE WHO AREN’T SAYING THAT.
May 19, 2016 at 2:21 am
Such an empty comment EB, lacking any real criticism of what I said. I’m not focusing on genitals, I’m just noticing that the producers are. One is not the same as the other.
May 17, 2016 at 2:04 am
I got to watch an early test cut of this back in February (about 70% of the VFX were complete). It was the only time I’d ever actually attended an advanced screening of a movie. They made us sign NDAs and took our pictures and everything. Anyway, the movie was okay. I was expecting a sequel and not a reboot, so I was mostly disappointed. The cameos from the old cast members were largely forgettable. If you’re boycotting this, you won’t be missing much.
May 17, 2016 at 2:21 am
I should mention that I’m a huge fan of the originals and I was bummed out about it for the long time, but I’ve learned to accept it. The new Star Wars movie was a turning point for me, it’s when I stopped being a diehard fan of things and just allowed things to be. It’s not like I can do anything about it.
May 17, 2016 at 2:05 am
To me the actual sequel to the movies is Ghostbusters the video game, awesome game with a nostalgic feel, very funny parts, and very challenging video game wise, that to me is the real sequel, i highly recommend that game
May 17, 2016 at 2:08 am
Which Ghostbusters video game?
May 17, 2016 at 2:10 am
The Xbox 360/PS3/PC one from 2009.
May 17, 2016 at 2:11 am
This one: http://cinemassacre.com/2009/08/13/ghostbusters-xbox-360-review/
May 17, 2016 at 2:13 am
I figured it was that one, but I just had to make sure, considering all the BAD Ghostbusters games.
The short answer is that the people in charge of the remake were more concerned with promoting progressive, feminist politics over making a movie that respects its source material. I’m not talking out of my ass here; Amy Pascal and Paul Feig, the two biggest powers behind the movie, have openly expressed such views, and several news outlets that have come to the defense of this movie (including The Guardian and Vanity Fair) have labeled its detractors as misogynists and “men’s rights activists,” rather than addressing the legitimate concerns over the movie’s actual quality.
At the end of the day, it’s feminist propaganda disguised as a Ghostbusters remake. The people making it don’t care about the previous movies, they just seized an opportunity to attach their ideology to a big franchise and are hoping it takes root. It hasn’t, and now they have little recourse but to label everyone as misogynist and refuse to accept criticism.
May 17, 2016 at 2:12 am
They missed their chance to make a great movie when Harold Ramis was still alive. Sony had no idea what to do with it, so they gave it to Paul Feig who reimagined it with female ghostbusters. It was kind of like a “why not?” situation, but nobody ever expected the backlash.
I still maintain it’s better than the Fantastic Four reboot of last year, but it’s still pretty lacking.
May 17, 2016 at 9:39 am
So you’re worried about “feminist propaganda”, yet you read Vanity Fair. 0_o
May 17, 2016 at 2:14 am
One day when James doesn’t expect it, Mike and Bootsy are going to tie him up and force him to watch Ghostbusters 2016 the same way the Ludovico technique was used on Alex from A Clockwork Orange.
Hey there James! I could not agree more. Really, you said it all. The only difference is that this was my sentiment for the movie ever since it was rumored that they would do an all female New ghostbusters movie… I cannot wait for your next vid but for me, as you said before, the 3rd Ghostbusters movie is really the Ghostbusters videogame that came out years ago. It has the original cast, it has great efects and a nice story, and, it shows the new recruits.
May 17, 2016 at 3:26 am
“The only difference is that this was my sentiment for the movie ever since it was rumored that they would do an all female New ghostbusters movie”
Well, at least you’re upfront about your sexism here. Everyone else is trying to hide it.
May 17, 2016 at 4:34 am
Go back to Tumblr, please.
May 17, 2016 at 4:51 am
Thanks for being upfront too. You’re an idiot, but at least you’re aware that you’re an idiot.
May 25, 2016 at 4:59 am
So what? He doesn’t want to see a reboot with women. That must mean he hates and actively works to destroy women right? Get a grip.
I wonder how many girls would complain if the screen wrote golden girls as all men, or made fifty shades of grey with role reversals.
Lets be realistic. Women just don’t make good comedians. They are not nearly as good at relating to an audience and pushing the envelope. They have repeatably failed in this regard. You can’t blame men for that either given the audience decides if its good.

Definitely, that one game IS Ghostbusters 3. And I’m not even, like “conforming” with it being that way. The game IS an enjoyable new adventure I’m treasuring more and more.
This movie, for me, will not exist.

Cis Male Pig. The ONLY reason you don’t like this film is that YOU CAN NOT STAND to see WOMEN leading a major blockbuster movie who do not fit into your narrow and sexist view of how woman should look in Geek Culture………
JUST KIDDING! James, you couldn’t be more right.

I’ve been getting “Cannot load M3U8: crossdomain access denied (2048)” and I can’t watch the video. Anyone know a fix?

This sums up my thoughts exactly from the start. It’s ‘Ghostbusters in name only’, plain and simple. I have no intention to see it: there’s so many other movies coming out over the summer that I’ll be checking out, and anything I missed I’ll see on TV or DVD.
I dunno why people are so upset that you or me or others don’t want to see it. If we don’t want to see a movie, we don’t want to see a movie. ’nuff said to it. There’s no “bias”, there’s no “hating” involved– if you folks dig the 2016 version then enjoy it, I’m not gonna stop you– but to me, it looks like an SNL movie with ‘Scary Movie 1,2,3,4,5,6’ overtones, lol.

Then just don’t see the movie and don’t make a big deal out of it, jackass.

It’s called an opinion, nobody needs to ask for your approval, if I want to say this movie is shit a million times, Im free to do so.
