A lot of the bad reviews are because you know its women.

In saying that the big bad and finale are very poor. But the comedy is very well done. Kate mckinnon (from saturday night live) is brilliant.

That review in particular barely mentions the gender of the cast or the controversy. Mainly looks at the joke construction and the overuse of ad libbing.

2016 faced criticism because the tone and direction of the movie was not appropriate for a Ghostbusters movie. There was a minority of trolls on youtube who went after the movie based on the gender of the cast. The studio tried to exploit that vitriol to try and get an reaction from the public and secure an audience who thought they were supporting feminism by watching a movie made by a giant soulless corporation.

The 2016 film is underrated. Its the funniest of the lot. It had a very poor finale though.

You are just letting your biases change your perception. Its way funnier. Can you even name a scene in the first movie that made you laugh? Just one?

Twinkie scene, marshmallow man scene, car scene, slimer slimed me scene, elevator scene w/ bill murray, don't cross the streams, bill murray and sigourney weaver together in her apartment, the mind reading scene, that's off the top of my head, There's heaps.

No bias, the original ghostbusters is a classic for a reason, it's funny, well cast and extremely entertaining.

The 2016 reboot with the girls honestly was a stinker, wasn't much i liked about that movie at all tbh.

Almost all of the scenes Rick Moranis was in.

"What a lovely singing voice you must have"

"Why worry? Each one of us is carrying an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on his back"

Dana - “That’s the bedroom, but nothing ever happened in there"
Venkman - “What a crime”

"Listen! You smell something?"

"Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats living together.. mass hysteria!"

Venkman running out and vaulting over the little swinging door when he realises its a girl at the front desk :tearsofjoy:

This thread was opened almost a year ago. It is no coincidence that the movie is now showing just under 12 months ago is it?

From what I’ve gathered from the press junkets it’s sort of the The Force Awakens. It’s well made, hitting all the nostalgic notes.
