Default 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.

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.

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

So, I had said just about the trailer:

It's out on video now, and I should have known better to rent it when I already had low expectations. But the reviews weren't awful and my friend wanted to watch it.

Surprisingly, much worse than I would have ever guessed. Zero redeeming qualities, for me. Not one character, plot point, scene or joke I'd keep if starting all over (that I can recall). The moment the new Fall Out Boy rendition of the theme song played, we quit watching, and I had to finish it on my own the next day. It didn't get better.

There are plenty of misogynistic *******s out there, but I wouldn't doubt the word of anyone who actually saw it.

Also, I'm not opposed to remakes, sequels and reboots at all, but it is getting tiring that 9/10 of them blow the opportunity completely.

The movie I think lost a lot of steam at the midpoint, never to recover. It's not a Ghostbuster movie in a sense that it's a sort of spoof of the genre, a movie that doesn't take itself seriously.

Like many of the "let's improvise" flicks, some hits, lots of misses.

I lost it when Hemsworth talked about the importance of Hot Dogs. Really funny improv.

IMHO, best parts: Hemsworth, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig because she's always great.

Meh: Kate McKinnon.

Didn't care for McCarthy, the vilain (as usual) , the dance part, the cameo, the VFX, the story, Garcia characters.

Average movie, bad Ghosbusters.
