Ghostbusters Trailer
I have been a big advocate for this project. I have no problem with the reboot, and I enjoy everyone involved, but...

I didn't like that trailer. I think it relied too much on nostalgia. It seems like much more gag-centric than the original, and there were a couple lines of dialogue that reek of generic executive input.

I'll still go watch it, but my excitement has waned.

Re: Ghostbusters Trailer

It's a bad trailer. Not saying it can't be a good movie but that trailer. Ugh.

Ending with an Exorcist joke? Weren't we done with that in the 80's?

I like everyone involved. Hope they cut a better trailer next.

Exactly what I expected out of Feig, who has said in the past it's OK that the scripts he films aren't funny, the actors/actresses will make them funny.

Every attempted joke looks like they were just winging it, and that's probably not a coincidence.

Couldn't pay me to watch this thing.

I thought this was supposed to be a reboot, not a reshoot.

Three brilliant white scientists and a sassy, black friend. I will not be watching.

It looks horrible. Everything about it. Train wreck.

Re: Ghostbusters Trailer
It's a Scary Movie-esque spoof, it's not a reboot.

It's strange. The first Ghostbusters -- due to brilliant writing / directing -- had a very authentic vibe despite its absurdity. It made it actually scary / spooky / creepy. But here, it just gives up on any sense of reality and goes full-blown Naked Gun gag flick.

Re: Ghostbusters Trailer
I know it's only a trailer & so it's hard to judge properly until having seen the film but off this it feels flat and a little dull. The fact that the opening scene involved 'sliming' suggests they're devoid of originality here. In fact there was at least two of these very same sequences in a 90 second trailer. What made the original so good and stand the test of time was the chemistry and energy between the four leads. There was a real balance. And I believed the likes of Aykroyd and Ramis could be scientists whereas I'm just not convinced the likes of Kristen Wiig & Kate McKinnon are natural fits in those roles.

It's like when an artist covers a classic song for the sake of it, if you aren't bringing anything fresh to the original then why bother?
