The second movie is my favorite. It had some great jokes, and the ghostly warlock was a great villian.

I prefer the sequel too. The first is still a real fun film though.

On the contrary, I'm okay with it. IDW already did an almost all female team in one of their "Ghostbusters" story arcs, and I loved 'Bridesmaids'.

The only thing that concerns me is it being 'darker' than the other two movies. That being said, I have faith in the current team.

Looking forward to seeing a new movie, but please add slimer to it

Ghostbusters is my favorite movie ever.

That said, I will never watch ANYTHING that stars Melissa McCarthy.

Agreed, I like just about everything. Melissa McCarthy however is one of the rare things I do not like. Then again this may be like her redeeming role or something.

About a year or so ago my mother tried like crazy to get me to watch The Heat, even forcing me to take a blu-ray home with me. Damn thing sat at my house un-touched for six months. Absolutely cannot bring myself to watch that woman. She isn't funny. At all.

Wiig is okay, but I have fond memories of her from The Joe Schmo Show that might be clouding my judgment. Not familiar with the other two, so I have no opinion on them.

I hear similar opinions around the internet. Everyone seems to be okay with all of the casting except McCarthy. The rest are angry about the Ghostbusters being females.

The Heat blu-ray has a MST3K commentary by the original cast(Joel, Trace, and Josh). It makes it slightly more tolerable.

I'm actually rather okay with this cast. When they said it was all female, I was afraid it was going to be spunky teenagers, which I cannot stand. I could see this working, but I'm not counting on it.

Hello, I am Ed and I like the first Ghostbusters. Anyway, female Ghostbusters do not bother me at the least. Women can be characters just like men can.

What concerns me is the actress with a seemingly poor reputation. So, what is wrong with her?

Well, that's... a curious cast, to say at the least.
I can see this, but it's still rather different.

Riffing on a comedy, no matter how bad, is pretty taboo in the riffing community, so that doesn't really entice me all that much.

I wonder if they'll have the original ghostbusters theme. But sang by a woman instead? :P

I don't mind a female cast. Times have changed, and women do a stronger Hollywood presence. McCarthy, however, I'm not so sure about. Her humor doesn't appeal to me.
