@2many2no Exactly. Ghostbusters (the one and only original) is a classic. Ghostbusters 2 was awful. The Ghostbuster “remake” was putrid. I can’t imagine that this new “remake” is going to be any better.
@chienfou The short version: if you’re familiar with the book, it’s absolutely incredible. If you’re not, you’re going to be lost. It was clearly made by fans for fans, and I’m worried that might hurt it with casual viewers. Which is important, because it’s only the first half of the book, and I really want to see the second.
Idk if I will see it in the theater or not. But I will watch it. I actually had no interest when I just saw the poster. But I watched the trailer and thought even though they cast a bunch of kids it looked pretty good. Of course I expect to see the OG ghostbusters make an appearance and I think that should be good.
If the reviews are good I may just go to the theater to watch it on the big screen and to eat delicious over priced popcorn.
@jitc, that’s what I’ve noticed in my life. The wife gets so wrapped up in being “mommy” that she forgets to be “wife.”
I’ve seen lots of neglected husbands. Admittedly, if some of those husbands helped more the wife would have more time for him. But on the flip, some wives don’t trust their husband and have him screwing up before he even starts.
@kittykat9180 I’ve just noticed a lot of spouses in general can lose sight of one another because it takes work to keep a household together in all its parts. I wouldn’t chalk it all up to either gender.
I’ll probably go see it in the theater early on a Cheap Tuesday, just because it will probably be entertaining. And given that Ivan Reitman apparently thinks it’s pretty good, I’m willing to shell out for the condiments too.
Been looking for this to come out since I first saw the trailer last year in a theater. Guess I may take the missus and make a date out of it. Though I most likely won’t toke one before I go like I did before the original…
The original was first and foremost, a comedy. This new one appears to have no humor and is relying on the Stranger Things style of storytelling to ‘reboot’ the franchise. My 13 year old son wants to see it, I’ll pass.
