Ghostbusters Vs. The Angry Mob
Let's get this out of the way first, my thoughts on the Ghostbusters POSSIBLE casting (as in nothings completely set in stone yet) at time of writing.
Who? Who? Who? And she's ugly as sin!
Now, onto my response to BlackNerdComedy (hi btw)www.youtube.com/watch?v=HC87Cz…
Once again, I feel people are missing the point of this outcry. I’m not directing this souly at Andre, I like him. He’s a smart guy and he does convey his opinion well. Also I love his Ninja Turtles reviews. Instead I want to talk about the idiots, apologists, feminists and the like, who are dismissing the reaction to the Ghostbusters reboot because “You’re just mad cus it’s all an female cast!”
Nothing could be further from the truth and here’s why.
If this was an all male cast. I’d hate it.
If it was an all black cast. I’d hate it.
If it was an all Chinese cast, I’d hate it.
If it was an all gay/homosexual cast, I’d hate it.
If it was an all Muslim cast…. I think you get the point.
The casting is NOT the problem! Poorly written, ill advised and unessacery films are shit. Regardless of who’s starring in it. The movie could star Jo Brand, Chloë Annet, French and Saunders (in their prime) and it’d still be awful. Plus it's another rushed out idea from a company desperately running out of money to pay the rent with!
The basic outline (from my perspective anyway) is I feel is this movie has no love, thought or imagination put into it. The fact it has a group of SNL nobodies cast… Who just happen to be female isn’t even top of the list on why this movie will soon be proven to be awful.
Protip, when I have to Google their names just to find out who these people are. That’s a bad sign! The other bad sign is hiring Melissa McCarthy according to everyone else!
I refuse to give it the time of day because it’s the latest in along line of movies that didn’t want/ask/need a continuation/sequel/prequel/reboot and should be left the fuck alone. Having said that, I give less than a microgram of a fuck that the asshats behind this turd wanted an all female cast. Bully for them, I want an all female cast for an Alien movie.... For obvious reasons!
The fact of the matter is Female Ghostbusters isn't even a new idea. Which Andre himself expertly points out female Ghostbusters were a thing before. This is why I felt a movie adaptation of EXTREME Ghostbusters would have been a better idea. Nope, a full on reboot, made by full on retarded Sony starring unfunny SNL (mind you I’ve never found that or Madtv funny) women all to please an agenda. Because say it with now children, it’s cashing in on a psycho-fem ideology that has no staying power. You’ll look back at this, Female Thor and others and just laugh.
“Heh heh, remember when everyone was pandering?”
In fact, let me tell you my chief complaint with this movie. Nothing to do with the female cast at all. Instead this project has been circulating for years. Bill Murray wanted nothing to do with it and it just never happened… Until a kick ass video game. As Tron Legacy painfully proved, movies that long in production shouldn’t be fucking made. Period! Which Jurassic Park 4 may prove this fact to be true... or not.
My complaint is when Harold Ramis past away, any other studio would have taken the announcement and felt “Maybe we should wait a bit?” as a mark of respect. Realise the news of his death might upset people if they went ahead with the reboot. Because it could be viewed as "too soon" or in poor taste.
Sony, in their continued ignorance and stupidity ploughed full speed ahead. Just like their ill advised decisions with the Spider-Man reboot, despite ignoring warnings and advice from Sam Raimi and Marvel themselves! That typical attitude of “We know better than you!” on full affect. Mind you that same thinking is what killed James Bond in my humble opinion. So you took Spidey and 007 to the woodshed, stripped all originality and what made them function, then swapped them out for what’s popular at the time?
James Bond became a Bourne clone while Spider-Man’s main inspiration for the reboot was Twlight (Oh you think I’m joking? Well read this www.forbes.com/…/the-pri…
Now, it seems Ghostbusters is next on the dissection table! If you just waited for the dust on Harold’s grave to settle, think about this and NOT make dumb decisions, this might have been a rentable for me. But the thing is, you didn’t. You didn’t take your time and planned this out. You didn’t access fan reaction or remedy the negative response online and you didn’t take into account if people (not just the die hard fans) even wanted this movie.
To those who say “You pigs are mad cus it’s a female cast) get your heads out your asses and remain silent.
As for me. I will not utter a single word on this until it's eventual unvailing..... Which I will stay at home and ignore the fuck out of it.
