    The whole channel is garbage and clickbait for people desperate to have their views supported, much like members of a cult.

    Every fact they have came from the Sony email hack. This really shows when it came to non-Sony franchises where they just made shit up. Like how Star Trek Discovery was about Sarek using time travel and some nonsense about how it supposedly not being part of the Prime timeline was part of the plot.
    Based on an article I read today the lead is a 12 year old girl. Female led movies just make money. Ghostbusters 2016 failed because it wasn't good, not because the cast were female. The same movie would a male cast would be just as successful, it just wouldn't have had the same childish backlash.

    Yeah, because people like Moronic Edge know so much about movies and why this one failed.:rolleyes:

    Midnight's Edge makes Cinema Sins look professional.

    They're older teens, not younger ones.

    The only specific ages I can find mentioned in any articles are 12 and 13. Those are rumors, and that's only two of the four teenage characters that are supposed to be in the movie, but 12 and 13 are ages with an actual basis in the reporting. The idea that any of the characters are 'older teenagers' doesn't seem to appear in any article I can find, unless you have a link?

    The salt this board has towards Midnight's Edge is highly amusing. :lol:

    There was nothing in that recap that didn't end up being true in the long term.

    You’re quite naive. Most of us can tell when something is absolute bullshit. You’ll get there one day... maybe.

    Clearly the end result proved otherwise, given how Feminist GB failed.

    There's no spinning that. What was said in this recap has been proven to be true.


    Though, there are those who live in denial.

    Ugh, can the whining move to another thread, I clicked on this because I thought there was something about the movie.

    You're dreaming if you think there will ever be a Ghostbusters thread again that has no whining of any kind in it. :)

    Wait, so this is a kids movie? Ok, well that eliminates what interest I had in it (and as someone who likes the first two movies but isn't really a "fan", I was actually fairly interested in this). The franchise has now gone from weird invisible sex jokes to barf jokes to 12-13 year old leads. Why would anyone make a Ghostbusters 3 with child leads? I don't give a shit about the lead characters gender, but they should be either adults or borderline adults. Not being old enough to see a PG-13 movie without a parent is way too young. I thought Dan Akroyd was supposed to be the one who had terrible ideas for a Ghostbusters sequel :vulcan:

    Its hard to imagine an idea worse then Extreme Ghostbusters but with even younger kids (A worse idea for GB3 I mean, a kiddie Ghostbusters is still a better idea then making a GB movie based on gross out humor starring unfunny "comedic" actors, which is what the 2016 film did).

    I thought Extreme Ghostbusters was pretty decent.

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    I'm more partial to "We're Back" & "Spirit" myself but "On Our Own" is also pretty cool.:mallory:

    I'm always up for more David Arnold or Henry Jackman. And while the movie wasn't great, I really enjoyed Joseph Trapanese's score for Robin Hood (2018).

    That's one of the best things about every new sequel & remake out there, regardless of whether the new installment is any good or not. The lead-up almost always leads to a new wave of merchandise and/or remastered special edition DVD releases of the original. (Seriously, would Warner Bros. have ever gone to the effort of unearthing all of that unseen Superman II footage if they weren't trying to cross-promote Superman Returns?)

    Not a bad idea, particularly since that was kinda Dan Aykroyd's original pitch for the original movie before budget constraints & Harold Ramis' rewrites scaled it down considerably.

    :lol:. Actually, turns out that it really worked but he was hit by a bus a week later.

    I think the cast should be a combination of robots and giant talking ants. All hail our cyborg insect overlords!

    I was so disappointed by Ocean's 8. Another waste of a great cast. How can you make a movie with Mindy Kaling and have it be so unfunny?!?!

    A lot of sequels are like that. Take the same elements from the first movie, just shake them up a little bit, and you get a perfectly delicious 2nd course. Do it well enough and you might even trick people into thinking that your rehash is better than the original, i.e. Terminator 2.

    Also, RoboCop had already been pretty thoroughly vandalized by the 2nd & 3rd movies and the "Prime Directives" miniseries. I don't think many fans had any expectations of the franchise coming back at all except maybe as a quick cash-grab based on the name recognition. That being said, while lacking the satire of the original, RoboCop (2014) at least had some good performances from Michael Keaton & Gary Oldman, which counts for a lot in my book.

    Still, given how angry these fan arguments can get, it makes me glad that my beloved Back to the Future will never have to be put through this meat grinder.

    As someone who was a kid at the time and a rabid fan of the franchise, I can tell you that my friends & I were all super psyched after Ghostbusters 2 came out. We bought a bunch of the toys and enjoyed them immensely. The 2nd movie didn't hurt the brand at all. It just sort of faded away the way that most of these zeitgeist crazes do eventually, especially among kids, replaced by the next new thing. Ghostbusters was replaced by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which was replaced by Power Rangers, which was replaced by Pokemon, etc.

    Yeah. What used to be a minority of isolated nutters has become a minority of nutters who's every rant becomes an easily accessible open letter to the universe. The world could use a greater sense of perspective on how little anything said on the internet actually matters.

    Beyond the aforementioned Spider-Man, Men in Black, and He-Man, they also own James Bond (which hasn't been nearly prolific as it used to be) and Jumanji (Good luck getting that lightning to strike again!).

    Bad idea. I once saw a guy get banned from Walmart for doing that.

    Given that I'm sick of the politically charged nature of this thread, I propose that we change things up with a GOOD OL' FASHION 'SHIPPER WAR!!! (TM). So, in your head canon, who did Janine Melnitz ultimately end up with-- Egon or Louis?

    The thread was started for political purposes. What do you expect it to be?

    I enjoyed it. It was a great follow-up to The Real Ghostbusters and fairly dark for a kid's show at the time, even more so than the original. Most of the criticism I've seen is based on new Ghostbusters being "diverse" and not on anything that actually occurred on the show, I assumed that they never saw anything other than promo pictures.

    They're most likely going this route because Stranger Things and It are both big hits.
