    That bit about forgetting to breathe. That actually happened to me once. I woke up and my shirt collar was in a position where it felt like I was being strangled and I forgot to breathe because I actually thought I was being strangled. Who else had a problem like that, and if you did what was your situation?

    I wish Doug didn't stare things straight in the face, properly identify them, then ignore them. If the point is "Have your own opinion", then you can't say the side that wants to prevent you from having your own opinion is a valid side. You can respect people's vote, but not if they deliberately and knowingly vote for a dictator who plans to get rid of voting. Yeah, there are always fanboys of the original, but they were no worse here than they were for every other reboot/remake/adaption in history. That's rather different than trying to assassinate the character of anyone who disagrees with your narrative. That's like saying people of all sexualities should get along, including straight people who claim earthquakes and plagues are caused by the mere existence of homosexuals.

    I never saw it because I think the whole concept is just stupid there was no point in making it an all female cast women don't need to prove they can do what men can do gender has nothing to do with who is better at what. And people need to shut the hell up because at the end of the day who really cares

    Here was my issue with the movie. The cast was not THAT great. Everyone kept trying to be the funny person and it failed. They also didnt feel like real people, just sterotyoes of the person they were playing. The humor felt forced and they always had to make references to the original. They were, in my opinion, scared to do something different and explore new ideas. The closet we ever got to a Ghostbusters 3 was the video game or even the Extreme Ghostbusters cartoon in the 90s. And my god, As to 1 in the movie looked like a turd on wheels. That shit was not ok XD

  • Jason Tate

    I don't like the new Ghostbuster movie but I have defend this movie in one point: In the original the Ghostbusters never had a motivation to proof ghosts are real. They never had a backstory what justify Peter, Winston, Egon and Ray going hunting ghosts but the new Ghostbuster movie shows why they want to proof that ghosts are real. The scene Doug said that it was pointless, where Erin explained why she believes in ghosts is very interesting and explains her motivation. This scene maybe pointless to the plot but is really interesting. When you watch the original movie you ask yourself "What is their motivation to bust ghosts?". Egon and Ray are intelligent men and you expect them to think rational but they believe in ghosts without any reason. And Peter is a guy who has a TV Show where he makes fun about people who believe in super natural. But despite the opposite backgroundstories they joined together and founded the Ghostbusters. In the new Ghostbuster movie Abby and Holtzmann encountered ghosts in their lives so they want to proof the world that they exist. Even the last Ghostbuster Patty joined them because she saw a real ghost in the subway. But Winston? Just because of the money. Yeah Winston just wanted to become rich. The new Ghostbuster movie sucks really bad but they managed to make a more plausible backstory for the Ghostbusters than the original movie.

    • Bill Jacobs
      Bill Jacobs 8 days ago

      Two problems here; first off, Peter had that TV show in Ghostbusters 2. In the original, he was a professor just like the other two, but he didn't believe in ghosts at all, he just studied "paranormal" stuff so he could bang coeds (it's literally the first scene we see of a character). Second, Ray and Egon study ghosts and paranormal activity because they are fucking geniuses pushing the boundaries of science. Seriously, both of them are walking encyclopedias of every unexplained spooky thing in modern history, not to mention experts in physics, mechanical engineering, even architecture. You don't need a motivation for why scientists do science; medical researchers don't have to have a tragic story of a family member dying of cancer. It's like saying we need to know why these cops are after these murderers; because they are cops and they are murderers!

    Honestly, I don’t mind the ghost busters being female. But changing male characters genders seems absurd to me, like what if they turned sailer moon into a guy, if you don’t like it then your a misogynist. But if it were taking place in this time period and learning from the original cast, not changing the original casts gender. Like what if when they remake Star Wars with Prince Leia and Darth Vader being a girl. It’s just weird to me.

    What if; After GB2 the originals all changed their names and moved on from 'busting. Peter became a professional sceptic, Ray became a cab driver and Winston became an undertaker. That's why Winston lent his niece a hearse, because he knew the threat was real.
    But that's just a theory ... a Film Theory! (sorry, wrong channel)

    You know, I honestly don't like the reason WHY they made the Ghostbusters female, instead of them being female. They did it TO start a controversy to get people to watch the film, and I honestly would find that insulting if I were female. Personally, there could be a team of female Ghostbusters, but nit by replacing the original cast.

    • Starman Gaming
      Starman Gaming 8 days ago

      +Bill Jacobs Fair point, but causing this sort of controversy would quickly enter i to the collective minds of Ghostbusters' fans, intentional or not, which would also leak out jnto the internet. This could later cause some form of intrigue in the form of the common thought "It can't be that bad," or "is it really that bad?" This will also cause some to buy a ticket, rent or fully purchase the movie on release, or even pirate it on site to "See what everyone's talking about." And I can even confirm this from a similar experience from the Emoji Movie, where I viewed it on Netflix after hearing for months how bad it was. This, obviously, equals MONEY!!!

    • Bill Jacobs

      Actually, I'm not sure if that was the original intention, but they certainly took advantage of the all-female cast by calling everyone who disliked it a woman-hating Neanderthal.

  • Lorenzo Franco
    Lorenzo Franco 25 days ago

    Well, the reason why there aren’t that many acrobatics in the original is because they’re old, not young, Ivan Rietman purposely casted pretty much old men because he wanted to make it gritty, the only real “young” member of the Ghostbusters, debatably, is Ray, Hell, un Ghostbusters II referenced this with the line “Suck it in the Guts guys, we’re the Ghostbusters”

    My Wife absolutely hates Melissa McCarthy and that other woman in “That Spy That Dumped Me,” Kate McKinnon. Thank god, I have a level headed wife. She acknowledges that woman can be funny but not in the way men can. Women can make me laugh, but don’t try men jokes. It’s old and boring, be interesting like Tina Fey or Mila Kunis. Lesbian jokes or man jokes don’t work. Be funny for a sake. This movie was full of women stereotypes, I’m surprised liberals weren’t so pissed. It didn’t represent anyone of the masses. Like holy shit it was as interesting as.......Black Panther, only a box office, for unknown certain reasons.

    • Bill Jacobs
      Bill Jacobs 8 days ago

      Because they actually don't have a problem with stereotypes themselves; they only have a problem when the wrong people use them. My favorite example is from the UK; feminists protested, and got rid of, women-only cars on the subway, because it was sexist to imply they were too weak to be around men. Now they are protesting, and may get, women-only cars on the subway, because NOT having them is sexist, for it exposes women to the danger of men. Whichever position a man takes will get them attacked for reinforcing "stereotypes". It applies to blacks and LGBT and other groups; they can be as stereotypical as hell, but god forbid anyone say anything (look at Pride; they don't like the stereotype that gay men are sluts, but their own parade is about the most sexualized thing you can legally watch in public).

      No one is mad for the vague charge of "changing things". They are mad for it's poor comedic writing, it's nonsense, and, most important, for the director and cast openly attacking anyone who criticized it for any reason.

    Geeks and nerds became the bullies ? I understand that is how you feel how I see it is geeks and nerds are still being bullied today. But unlike growing up where it was the high school jock now a days it is the SJWs. They are invading the geek and nerd culture trying to make everything PC and forcing their ideas and agenda onto us the geeks and nerds of the world and bulling us to either accept their ideals or get bashed as what ever they spew now a days.
    Ask any geek or nerd we are not against diversity or females and if anything a female Ghostbusters cast could have been a good thing but it wasn't it was un-funny and clearly had a SJW agenda. Geeks and nerds are not against diversity but forced diversity.
    A character shouldn't be defined by what they are rather who they are. That is the problem on both sides people judging by what rather than who.
