I just saw this movies today and I absolutely LOVED it! I'm a fan of the originals and this one honestly had the same vibe. The characters were likable and smart. It was honestly so refreshing to see female leads that had some serious brain power. Holtzmann is an instant favorite! I've seen a lot of guys on here whining about how the movie "hates on men". No, it doesn't. The men making these statements are the same ones who came on here to rate it before the movie even came out. All this film did, was reverse the roles. The women were the leads and the powerful ones <more>
while 2 men TWO, out of the whole film were given roles that are 99.999% of the time given to women. If you want a movie with a good story that makes you feel nostalgic all over, YOU NEED TO SEE THIS! 3/4 of the Original Ghostbusters say it's amazing, and I completely agree. :
I'm not a fan of awkward comedies. I HATE most romcoms because of stupid miscommunication being the only thing that seems to launch the story forward. There's an awkward factor in Ghostbusters, but it works so well as to be enjoyable. The special effects are solid too, and crisp even in faster paced 3D shots. There's a teasing of some 4th wall breaking that is just so well timed and you can see the synergy and chemistry between the cast. I'm terrified of crowds, and often avoid a trip to the movie theater unless I just feel like I need to go. I'm glad I braved the crowds, <more>
and I plan to do so again - this movie was AMAZING and a part of me is sad to see it getting panned by a lot of folks.It doesn't replace the original, and it's not less just because of some gender-bending, but it's damned entertaining, and visually appealing. I recommend it in 3D if you can watch it that way, but I'm going to see it a second time in 2D so I'll either update this review or reply to it afterward.
After hearing nothing but that the movie had bad reviews, I decided to look up these reviews I was hearing so much about. I surprised to note that almost every bad review included something about gender which really shouldn't be a factor in movie-going experience . So, I decided to go see the movie, ready for it to suck. I was astonished to find myself laughing throughout the movie! Not only were each of the leads well thought out and well rounded, they were all genuinely delightful. This may not be the best comedy of all time, but it is certainly the best movie I've seen in recent <more>
years. I highly suggest going to see this movie. Not only to prove our society has moved past the 1940s, but also because it is truly hilarious and action packed.Admittedly, two or three jokes are woman specific, but it is much friendlier to both genders than the original Ghostbusters movies. The male characters in the movie are also well rounded and genuinely funny as well. Seriously, go see this movie. You'll be gasping in fright moments before you are rolling out of your seat in laughter. It was honestly excellent.
Great movie, definitely go see it! (by nazrafel-77-132554)
Look, I get that it's a remake- but it's fantastic. Watching it I went from being 38 to 8 years old again- it was exciting, funny, and well made. Several original cast members have cameos that reference their original roles in creative ways and there's a homage to Harold Ramis. The ghosts/effects are well done and include some recognizable characters. The main characters- Abby, Erin, Holtzman and Patty are hilarious. Holtzman has a fantastic scene that made my inner- 8 year old want to start planning my Halloween costume around her. It was an amazing experience watching a movie <more>
where the 4 main characters are women, no one is dressed/designed to appeal as eye candy, they just going through the movie being hilarious and bad ass as very normal looking women. I'd absolutely go see this movie again.
First, a huge thank you to Paul Feig. You did not ruin my childhood and in the process, made a great film, I have had time to process and am ready to post. This weekend I attended the red carpet premier of Ghostbusters. My impressions are below.The movie delivered for me and I really enjoyed it. It was not a rip off of the original as the characters had their own development and style. They were busting ghosts but with a different purpose and with a distinct protagonist that is different from the original with a different purpose. It worked well. The first 10 min were the only tough point for <more>
me but only because the movie had to start and find its stride. I saw it in 3D and it really was awesome. The 3D was not just an afterthought. It really added to the film and made me feel a part of it. The audience I was with were all hardcore ghost heads and fellow busters. The mood during and after the showing was positive and energized. I heard lots of laughter and support. None of the people I talked to or were there with booed or had a negative reaction. Most can't wait to see it again. My biggest complaint is that I have to wait until Thursday to see it again. Great time was had by all! Finally, some will hate no matter what. I went to this film expecting to be let down. Sorry Paul I was in fact pleasantly surprised. I loved the film. I can not say it enough. If you honestly give it a chance, you will enjoy it. I know this film will grow a next generation of busters!
Since the movie did not have the best reviews i was not sure if i wanted to go and watch it in theater. It's a shame it didn't get better reviews.I am so glad that my sister dragged me to watch this movie because i loved it!!! It was hilarious.This is the type of movie that I can definitely watch over and over again and still not get tired of.The women acted really well and had me laughing throughout the movie.Most importantly, the movie captured me right from the beginning. I would recommend this movie to my friends and family for sure.So don't worry and go to the theater for <more>
Nostalgia glasses off, spectre-tacular fun (by amesmonde)
A group of varied personalities form a paranormal company in order to catch ghosts and save New York City.Based on Ivan Reitman "Ghost Busters" written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis without drawing any comparisons to the 1984 classic, Ghostbusters 2016 is 116m 28s of stylish sleek fun. Ghostbusters writers Katie Dippold and Paul Feig interestingly bring the team together with clean cut modern cinematic swagger. Feig, director of 2015's Spy, turns his hand effortlessly to an effects driven comedy friendship rework.With a Disney Haunted Mansion-like opening with a genuine jump <more>
scare, to animated mannequins and joy riding ghosts including Slimer , there's plenty of ectoplasm on display that appears to follow the excellent cast, especially Kristen Wiig's Gilbert. Haunted by a paranormal encounter as a child, Gilbert who's co- written ghost book loses her job when a ghost encounter video goes viral. Wiig along with kooky hot engineer Holtzmann played by Kate McKinnon light up the screen no pun intended and soup loving Melissa McCarthy's Abby Yates and Leslie Jones' subway worker Tolan provide the comedy backbone.While the scripted comedy doesn't go for subtle wit, with some physical gags its mostly more on the nose comedy, infused with pop culture references, including Ghost and The Exorcist to name a few, it genuinely has its laugh out loud moments, Feig even throws in a fart joke for good measure. There's lots of chuckles to be had, many come from Gilbert's and Yates former, later rekindled friendship. Feig offers excellent set-ups and set pieces as proton packed armed they go about busting spooks in a rock concert where Ozzy Osbourne cameos , the city street and subway at one point using some new toys. There are many memorable moments, a scene where they run some tests like Peter Parker trying out his web, along with a moment where Holtzmann goes all Clint Eastwood western to name a few. McCarthy and Jones' comedy timing is impeccable, with smart Wiig and wacky genius McKinnon bouncing off wonderfully - firmly stamping their mark. But overtly focal Chris Hemsworth sends his persona up somewhat as dim witted eye candy Kevin and steals many of the best moments.As the team discover there's a disturbed bell boy Rowan North Neil Casey amplifying paranormal activity in New York, during a carnival of phantoms we get to see the Marshmallow Man in balloon form and a pilgrim ghost take on the team. If anything the excellent CGI spirits on occasion are more spectral beings rather than the departed traditional dead, there's a giant Gremlin-like flying creature and holographic like ghouls trapped in mirrors. Ghostbusters moves along at breakneck speed, and while the main bad guy may lack weight and grit thankfully this is counteracted by the genuine likable and watchable main cast.While the CGI may lack that Indiana Jones/Poltergeist 80's optical feel. The colourful ghost effects on display - reminiscent of Beetle Juice and akin to the original second outing, along with the Ghostbuster universe cartoons, comics etc. have a charm of their own. At one time their Ghostbuster logo literally appears animated when Rowan mocks the team prior to him trying to destroy the city in a vortex, which lucky for the insurance company leaves little, if any mess. There are some fridge logic moments, why build a containment unit instead of zapping them into slimy gloop, unless it's to study, either way I'm sure Ghostbusters aficionados will be able to explain.There's an array of welcomed cameos for series fans from the likes of Ernie Hudson, as the undertaker Bill and uncle of Tolan, to Bill Murray, in a surprising extended cameo as Martin Heiss, who accuses the Ghostbusters of being fraudsters. Dan Aykroyd, has an excellent brief appearance as the all knowing cab driver. Even Annie Potts appears as a hotel desk clerk, snapping the crowning, "What do you want?" Andy Garcia shows up as the Teflon Mayor and humorously loses it when he is compared to the Mayor in Jaws. While Charles Dance's small role is fittingly cast as Gilbert's uptight University Dean.Feig offers along with the familiar theme tune supernatural hijinks and enough jump scare frights to give the youngsters the heebie jeebies. Dedicated to Harold Ramis, stick around for some end credit antics plus a post credit scene where Sigourney Weaver briefly appears as Holtzmann's mentor Rebecca Gorin and the team discovers the name Zuul for the fist time, setting it up for a sequel.Overall, with the controversial backlash and odd marketing now in the grave, as with any kind of rework comparisons will be made, taking my nostalgia glasses off, as a film in its own right, it's spectre- tacular fun and comes recommend.
Yet another hugely funny film from Paul Feig and his crew (by themadmovieman)
I'm delighted to say that I loved this film. I may not have the same nostalgic adoration for the original Ghostbusters as so many people, but I was so glad that I could enjoy this as an individual movie, one that proves that Paul Feig and his crew can do almost no wrong, thanks to a hilarious script and great performances throughout.That's the one thing that I want to emphasise about this film: it's more a Paul Feig comedy than a Ghostbusters remake. For over an hour, this film diverts hugely from the 1984 movie, focusing far more on its own characters than simply copying the <more>
original beat- for-beat. Also, as a Paul Feig movie, it's absolutely hilarious from start to finish.It might not have the same raunchy humour as Spy and Bridesmaids, but there are still so many laughs throughout Ghostbusters. Given the poor trailers ahead of the film, I expected the impressively funny start to wear off, but I was hugely surprised to find that I was laughing a good few times every minute for about three quarters of this movie, and so was everyone else in the cinema.The comedy in this film is absolutely excellent, without a doubt, and the writers did a fantastic job to make a PG-13 blockbuster so consistently funny. However, the biggest reason why I found this film so hilarious was definitely the performances.Living up to their predecessors fantastically, the lead actresses Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones were all very entertaining. However, the real stand-outs from this movie are Chris Hemsworth and Kate McKinnon.Hemsworth, in a relatively small and simple role, is absolutely hilarious every time he's on screen. It's a performance that goes way beyond the bounds of anything he's done before, but he makes what would normally be a pretty repetitive role, playing the brain- dead receptionist, hugely funny, adding an extra level of humour to the film beyond the four leading ladies.But the person who was even funnier than Hemsworth was Kate McKinnon. Throughout the film, I'm certain that she accounted for 90% of the biggest laughs, even having me in tears laughing so hard at one moment. She plays Holtzmann, the bizarre but brilliant scientist, to absolute perfection, with an on-point balance between purely bizarre humour and side-splitting physical comedy, making her the brightest spot at the centre of this hugely funny movie.However, I do have one clear flaw with Ghostbusters: its story. Whilst the comedy was consistently hilarious from start to finish, when the film strays more into action/blockbuster territory, it feels a little two-dimensional and predictable. The action and sci- fi is certainly something the original did far better, and when this film tries to emulate it, it's too much like a retreading of the original, which was disappointing to see.Overall, however, I couldn't help loving this film. Yes, its story may be too similar to the original, but the rest of this film is an example of how to remake a movie. It introduces new characters that take the film in a different direction, and give it its own identity, as a fantastically funny movie with some of the best comedic performances in recent years.
A lot of fun, it felt like the Ghostbusters to me. (by ozma-14959)
I really like the Ghostbusters franchise. And I don't mean that like some people, who mean they loved it when they were little and still love the movie now as they look back on it through the rosy tint of nostalgia. I cannot be like that; I didn't see Ghostbusters until I was a teenager, and I did not love the film until I was a young adult. However, once I click with a story, I never let it go and tend to pursue it beyond its most famous and mainstream component. In this case that involved watching "Ghostbusters 2," playing "Ghostbusters: The Video Game," watching <more>
all of "The Real Ghostbusters" and "Extreme Ghostbusters," and reading every single one of the IDW comics from "The Other Side" all the way to the most recent issue of "Ghostbusters International." Oh, and I also have a pair of Ecto Goggles which I clip onto my pistol belt and wear with a Ghostbuster zip-up shirt I made with a name badge, no-ghost patch on the right sleeve, pocket on the left sleeve, and velcro fasteners on the cuffs. Those are my credentials, that's the kind of person I am. So the big question is, "What did I think of this reboot?" This remake of Ghostbusters made me laugh a lot, and I liked the characters. While one of the main characters is clearly drawn to Chris Hemsworth's character Kevin, she is not persistently/creepily perusing him in the same way that Venkman does to Dana in the 1984 film. In fact, she actually keeps enough possession of her sanity to not be mindlessly blown away by his muscles and good looks and instead suggests they not hire him because he would clearly be a horrible secretary. Setting her attraction aside, the movie did not have a romantic subplot, and I think that is fantastic. We got a bit of backstory for a few of the characters, which is more than we can say for the original Ghostbusters film. And despite the trailers' best efforts to convince everyone that Patty was a certain overused character type, I was able to enjoy the character as she actually is in the movie, where she is quite the history buff and actually seems pretty laid-back a lot of the time. The ghosts felt much more dangerous than they did in the original two Ghostbusters films. For the first time I really felt like this was a potentially lethal line of work *before* we got to the the main enemy at the end of the movie. Some of the ghostbusting sequences were very cool, maybe too cool if you want this movie to be just like the one from 1984, but I think the sillier moments help to balance that out. There are some situations only Ghostbuster type action heroes find themselves in because all the uber-cool heroes like James Bond somehow manage to avoid being smushed by gigantic parade balloons and the like. There were new weapons for the Ghostbusters to use against the ghosts in this film, but I was surprised to find I was okay with that. I suspect this is because I have become accustomed to similar versions of several of them in the fantastic IDW comics continuing the adventures of the original Ghostbusters. In the comics, Egon invents similar grenades and modifies several of the proton packs to include pistol-style firing mechanisms. If I have one complaint, it is that I do not think the technobabble was as good in this film as it was in the 80's movies.This movie may contain the most entertaining credits I've ever seen, and there was an easter egg waiting for fans of the original movie at the very end. When the lights came on, my first thought was, "I hope they make a sequel," which may make me a terrible person in the eyes of some, but I don't get my opinions secondhand from the "cool" people, I try to think for myself.
