I saw Ghost Busters

  1. Fair disclosure: I'm not really a fan of the original. I genuinely don't get why it is so popular. I was really young when I first saw it though so maybe that tainted me.
    I have tried twice to re-watch it as an adult but got bored and turned it off both times. None of this is a dig at the movie itself. Lots of people I admire love this movie like a child.
  2. Anyway my number one response to the new one is: That's it? What's all the fuss about?
    I assumed there *must* be some heavy handed "man bashing" in there somewhere to rile so many people up but there wasn't at all. Confused.
  3. It wasn't like the greatest movie I've ever seen or anything but..
  4. It was very very very funny. I laughed out loud a lot. So did @mamiecoffey. And @sophster loved loved loved it.
  5. I'm a huge Kristin Wiig fan anyway so I'll watch her in anything. She was impeccable as always.
  6. This Kate McKinnon person stole the show. She's ridiculously funny.
    "How about something stationary. Like a bullseye?" "The president is a plant!" I'm still laughing.
  7. For all the crap on line about Leslie Jones being a caricature or whatever...I dunno. I thought she was hilarious and her character was multi-dimensional and integral.
    She was probably the easiest to identify with, responding to the crazy stuff like a normal person.
  8. I've always been lukewarm on Melissa McCarthy but she was great here.
    I loved her in St. Vincent, but most of her movies are very much not my thing.
  9. Chris Hemsworth should do comedy more. Way more likable as a hilarious dope than a stodgy dope.
  10. Anyway I thought it was great. A perfect way to forget about life for a while and laugh your self silly.
  11. My two cents...
