Abandonment Issues [ COMIC ]

Truth be told, I do not intend on watching the new Ghostbusters reboot in the theater. Why? Well, in all honestly, I very rarely go to the movies anymore. And on those rare occasions that I do, it has to be something I am really excited to see on the big screen.

So far this year I have gone to the movies twice. First time was to see Deadpool, which was awesome, and the second was to see Hardcore Henry, which was a movie that I felt was best to experience on the big screen, like Grindhouse. Next movie I plan to see in the theaters is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and that completes my movie viewing schedule for 2016.

Now while I am indifferent to the final Ghostbusters product, I have passionately followed all of the behind-the-scenes drama that lead up to its creation. The Sony hack of ’14 revealed some really telling details, that would make for a great movie itself. Seriously, if you are interested in learning more about what I am talking about I highly recommend watching this video by Midnight’s Edge. It does a real good job summing everything else.

And if you are going to see the movie this weekend, or while it is still in the theaters, enjoy. Me? I’ll probably just wait until it is finally released on Netflix or Hulu, some day.

    Care to correct the English?

    Okay. . . how many times does this need to be addressed.
    The vast VAST majority of people who disliked the reboot didn’t give a shit that it was all-female.

    It’s the fact that the trailer was abysmal.
    The few jokes that were there were cringe-worthy, the effects looked dated and no one really wanted another reboot of an 80’s film [like they disliked Robocop, Total Recall, etc. etc.]

    To bring this into games the new CoD game’s trailer came out at roughly the same time as the First Ghostbusters trailer and it was just as hated.

    People want something new and original; it’s likely why Bridesmaids was so damn funny and well received with nearly an identical cast.

      Not sure if you thought my humor was my point-of-view. It was a joke. From what I have seen, Sony is the one that pushed the misogyny narrative, after the first trailer was so poorly received. Personally, I think this is a remake/reboot that no one asked for nor needed to be made, but that is just my opinion.
