  • Listening to: No More Mr. Nice Guy - Megadeth
Ever since 2014, fanboys basically were up in arms over Ghostbusters being rebooted. The original cast wasn't coming back (but let's face it; Harold Ramis being ill and dead as well as the probability of a 3rd movie not being very good most likely stopped it) but really a reboot was the best call if they wanted to continue the franchise and it got worse when Paul Feig said the immortal idea, "I want to do it with all women."

And suddenly, all the sexists and racists given Leslie Jones, came out of the woodwork. I know a friend of mine once objected to the idea not for sexist reasons mind you, he just wasn't a fan of the franchise, period even when I suggested a fan cast of my own years ago. What's funny first it was a mixed gender cast and then when it was finally announced Feig was doing an all-women reboot; I offered my own.

If you're curious; it consisted of Sasheer Zamata, Abbi Jacobson, Kristen Bell and Emma Watson.

I admit I was disappointed neither of my choices got in but I think I prefer the women who Feig eventually cast better. But I'm just rambling, the point is; I defended this film since day one despite everyone saying it'll suck or it'll fail. The first trailer didn't help but what people forget is that trailers to Paul Feig's films, they're never good. The trailer to Spy is among the worst trailers I've seen that made it look like Paul Blart 2 like "haha because she's fat" kind of jokes. The actual film is nothing like that. Not even one fat joke. Ghostbusters is no exception. And of course, fans made conspiracies to make it look bad and such, again I'm rambling.

The point is, fuck these so-called "fanboys" because Ghostbusters is fucking awesome.

Pretty much a lot of elements work in this film's favor. Of course what brings it to life is the cast. Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones all gel together wonderfully. Different personalities intersecting with Erin being the insecure one, Abby is pretty much something of the film's equivalent to Ray Stanz, always enthusiastic about the paranormal. Jillian Holtzmann is the eccentric inventor and Patty Tolan is the snarky one but more down to earth in comparison. Given that the first three are scientists and Patty is a historian, this is essentially a movie about celebrating nerds. Especially "geek girls." This is undoubtedly a power fantasy movie for a lot of women and well deserved too since the actresses chosen definitely elevated what was on page.

The improv does help a lot. I argue that this new cast does make this a worthy competitor to the original given it has a lot of quotable dialogue and hilarity abound.
Plus with Patty, it fixed an element with the original when it introduced Winston. Look, Ernie Hudson is cool and all but he didn't have much to do. All the white dudes got to do cool stuff. Patty on the other hand got more screen time, she asserted herself to joining the team, she did a lot of ghostbusting, had a valuable asset and most importantly, she was funny. Absolutely funny.

I did like the arc between Erin and Abby as they start out as estranged friends with different viewpoints but both rekindled it over the course of the film which I felt was well done.

Other cast members do fine as well. Chris Hemsworth was pretty funny himself as I expected. I also definitely got a kick out of the cameos from Signourney Weaver and Annie Potts (spoiler alert, Weaver's cameo is the best one out of all of them). Neil Casey did fine of Rowan. I do like the villain but I do wish there were more scenes with him than beyond a simple motivation but I love the themes surrounding the guy as he does truly represent something of a dark reflection of the new Ghostbusters in which he was also mocked for his study in the paranormal including his beliefs but whereas the new Ghostbusters just keep going in spite of everything against them, Rowan just goes nuts and thinks committing violence is the best way to get back at everyone. It's a theme I wish was explored more but I do think he was much of an interesting villain and in fairness, he does prove to be much of a threat.

I've heard quite a bit that the first twenty minutes or so were slow and honestly, it didn't feel that way surprisingly. If anything, I felt at times the time went a bit too fast (in fact, this might explain the upcoming extended Blu-Ray). I did feel like at one point a scene was cut that led up to another like when Erin figures out Rowan's plan. But I guess because of the strength of the cast and the humor itself, it just worked for me. I especially appreciated the jab at the ghost hunting reality shows (the lead up was a clever segway actually).

And speaking of, humor is often subjective so this will largely depend if Feig's sense of humor is similar to yours or you're just all around fine with it. Of course, I'm a fan of it. I laughed a lot at the jokes from the dialogue (Patty is among the queens of these) to the physical humor. It does help that I'm a sucker for slapstick so I think it works for this film.

And I love the designs of the ghosts, my personal favorite being the concert demon. I hoped for a cool ghost design and that thing qualified for what I was looking for. That's not to say I didn't like the others but this thing looked killer. And the music is good too. It's cool to hear an orchestra of the Ghostbusters theme especially during the climax. And I don't mind how that played out because one, all the other films solved their problems without the traps and two, Feig has gotten better at action since The Heat and Spy. It seems that he's now getting the gist of how to do these well.

Honesty, I prefer over this version over the original. Blasphemous to say maybe but it's like me with the TNG crew with Picard and co. being my favorite Star Trek crew. I have a personal favorite to latch onto and these new Ghostbusters are what I've been looking for. It feels like I wanted this but I never asked and worth every minute watching. I highly recommend this, at least give it a chance before dismissing it. Like don't come in wanting to hate it, it's not cool. But it's worth the watch. Trust me.

They're ready to believe you, are you ready to believe them?

P.S. Stay after the credits, it's something special.
Just to weed out people, anyone who supports Trump or thinks anyone of race, gender or in the LGBT community is an enemy; mention it here so I can see which assholes to unfriend. Thanks to a certain someone who commented with the ignorant idea that Chris Evans is racist toward white people because he doesn't like racism or Trump supporters, I finally got confirmation that that stupid asshole no doubt is okay with Trump and supporting fascism. So fuck her entirely. And I want to know anyone else who has a similar mindset.

Well I'll be blunt about it, I'm broke (at least for points and lack of a paypal account) so I decided to start a donation for points. Okay, 10,000 points is incredibly too much but well, at times I can be desperate.

Just that since comissions seem to be hot so well, I decided to earn points. So, with every donation; you get a free request for a Death Battle idea of your own or if you want a character on a billboard, movie theatre screen, etc. Send it to me and I'll do it.

Death Battle Prices:

Here are the prices:

For one DB card - 10 points (it will extend to 20 if you want more than one.)
For Anime and comic book characters - 15 points
For Movie Characters - 15 points
For TV characters - 15 points
For video game characters - 10 points
For book characters - 10 points

If you request like the Nostalgia Critic-like web-based characters, I'll extend that to 5 or 10 points. So yeah, that's the price listing.

You must be logged in to donate.
