[ACT] Your last movie?
(02-22-2017, 08:56 PM)Oedipussy Rex Wrote: Ghostbusters (2016)

The all-female cast that sent internet dorks into a tizzy. imdb gives it a score of 5.4. I think that's a tad low and would place it closer to 6 but I'd have to be in a very good mood to give give it more than that. The problem wasn't the cast, it was the script. Or rather, the plot. The original Ghostbusters movie, after the set up, was, when you get right down to it, a mystery movie. Why has supernatural activity increased exponentially? Why are these weird things happening in Ripley's apartment? Who is responsible? It's Chinatown with ghosts; the more one investigates, the more questions appear. Ok, it's nothing like Chinatown, but you get the idea.

This movie isn't a mystery. We know who, we know how, we know why. Which leaves the story with not much more than banter (done very well), gadgetry (superfluous), f/x, and cameos.

2.75 "Big Double-yew"s (Points for naming the reference and explaining why I used it.)

Just watched it. McCarthy is bad. It's much as you say however I give it 2 stars for the 2 laughs. Ghost on her shoulder? That was a great scene. It's interesting at how quickly they developed the characters in the original and yet after this whole movie, the characters have almost no development. It also lacks any epic flavour but it does have numerous nods to the original plus, as you say, all the cameos. The screenplay is the core problem for sure.

Development may be the wrong word. "I collect spores molds and fungus" tells us a lot Smile

I've rewatched the original numerous times. I doubt I'll watch this one again.
