Look... I have ZERO issues with an all-female cast.

Hell, I support having more women in leading roles. Go for it!

But make your OWN damn movie. Don't ruin a classic franchise and its characters just to make a point: "Hey! Girls can play these characters too and the movie will be the same!"

The new Ghostbusters is essentially a propaganda film and anyone who doesn't agree with it is a "misogynist".

That's how I see it too. I've handled plenty of bad remakes that missed the point, but this one might be so much more.

Heck, if feminism wasn't so controversial right now, I wouldn't have cared if they did make a gender-swapped Ghostbusters team, it's not like making a preestablished-character like James Bond a woman. I kind of lost hope in this one though, as soon as that "girl power" photo came up. Yeah, there are women in Hollywood now, great, can we please start treating it like something normal already and focus more on making good movies?

At least the ghosts still look like they came from a cartoon.

May as well make the villain of the next Jurassic Park movie a black T Rex skeleton. Makes about as much sense.

So, like, are they really doing this? Why? Why do they have to ruin everything?

Full trailer's out
http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/33819 ... th-slimer/

Didn't find it too exciting, but it does make me wish so bad that this was made a little differently cause the potential is there. None of the jokes were funny to me, and that seems to be what the trailer revolved around the most. At least it wasn't too cringey.

I watched it with an open mind. I dig the look, but I didn't laugh once.

"That's going to leave a mark!" Are we really still saying that in comedies? That stopped being funny twenty years ago.

For real though! The most cringey part of the trailer for me was that moment and that line.

I want Kong v Godzilla To Be like BvS but...y'know, better critically received. With Mothra filling the role of Wonder Woman and Ghidorah filling the role of Doomsday. Here's to hoping. :D

Ugh, that was pretty cringeworthy. It's like they gathered up all of the crappiest, played-out jokes ("That's gonna leave a mark!", the chick kissing the guns, and so on) and slapped them into one movie. I didn't laugh one bit during this. This is gonna be around Fant4stic-tier bad.
I hate you eternally now Derzerb, I hope you know this.
