    As someone who downvoted the first trailer and doesn't like what I've seen of the film on TV, I fail to see how it deserved such backlash, at least compared to similar soulless Hollywood remakes and reboots like Robocop, Poltergeist, and Ben-Hur. The fact that other attempts to give established franchises more female representation like The Last Jedi (which I don't like BTW) and Captain Marvel have been met with similar backlashes is very, very concerning.

    First I'm not a woman hater, but I hated this awful movie n the last jedi. 2nd calling people like me a misogynist just makes me hate them n agree with people who call them femnazis. 3rd I loved how on the pure original Ghostbusters side they're more there than on the "SJW" side which is how it is most likely is n real life in order 4 these turds 2 bomb

    The thing for me is I don’t even care for the original that much. So it’s hard to like a remake of something that you don’t care for, in my opinion, at least.

    You know, the most egregious thing about Ghostbusters 2016 for everyone was that it wasn't remotely as bad as certain folks were certain it would be, but it also wasn't remotely as good as some of us hoped it'd be to prove those folks wrong.

    I just watched this movie and honestly, it's not that bad. There are some cringy and just plain bad moments, but overall it's alright. And to me the effects looked pretty good and the ghosts designs were really cool.

  • Tommy Peterson

    Hears how I would wright it.
    Starts as Two of the ghostbusters doing a job. And they fail becouse they're getting too old, theyre vary sad Becouse who died, so they make an ad to hire new ghost busters so the girls take the ad. They pass the torch and the girls become ghostbusters. And they pay tribute to Harold Allen.
    And that's how they should of wrote it

    It was a bad movie. Get over it.
    Some other obvious facts:
    1. that it was bad had nothing to do with the gender of the characters and more to do with the fact that gender was FORCED as an issue into a GHOSTBUSTERS movie when it didn't need to be.
    2. Bill Murray ruined any chance of Ghostbusters 3 being made while all cast members were still alive.
    3. Tamara has an amazing pair of big, pillowy boobs.

    Studios just refuse to leave anything alone. Ghostbusters is a legendary classic 10/10 movie, that can never be duplicated in a way that would do it justice. Watch they will one day try and re-do Jaws..

    If you ask me this ghostbusters film isn’t that bad, true it is not as good as the original but as the nostalgia critic accurately assessed nothing could be as good as the original movie, it set the bar so high, yes you can all go ballistic at me for this comment but to be blunt I don’t care what you say about me, don’t mean to offend anybody about it

    I ain't afraid of no reboot, hahaha, too funny, too funny. But the opening of this video is sooooo sickeningly true. Everyone is either really, really for it or extremely against it and hated it. I don't really think there was an in between of people who just liked it. You had people who thought you are an asshole and a misogynistic pig who is completely against the development and future success of women or you had the people who thought you were a piece of shit if you even thought about seeing the movie because the original one was perfect and shouldn't have been fucked with. I'm in between, I don't really give q flying fuck either way, it's okay. It's not bad but it's not good either. Anyway, this video was hysterical and I couldn't stop laughing. You pulled this off perfectly, thank you cuz I really needed that laugh today. Too funny and extremely true. I just don't understand why people can't be both or in the middle. Why is it that you either have to hate it or love it and you're fucked if you feel either way so it's better to just say you don't give a fuck. Hahaha, hahaha, hahaha, hahaha, hahaha the sketches you do are fucking hilarious too. Keep up the awesome work.

    I haven't seen the movie and I don't hate it. My problem is that I hate that the only reason for it was the feminist movement that I hate, not because I am against women, but because I think there are more important things (in my country everyone is crazy about sexism while there is a literal war between natives and police in the sourth. How is that not important?)

    This move is a shit show not because of the cast but the writing and the butchering of the licence and the new one might be destroyed by the SJW shit heads who are condemning it for ignoring this one

  • Nightmarefuel Gamer

    What's wrong with this film is the fact that real fans wanted a third movie,not a remake.But got a remake anyway.Plus just like the Charmed remake,we have people shoving their agenda down our throats.Pretty much saying that women are vastly see to men in every facet, and that men are just idiots who only think about sex 24/7.Show us strong women, don't tell us what we need to think.
