McCarthy mouth always ruins her work. Filthy when she does not have to be.

OMG!!!! Ghostbusters rule!!!! I watched this film with my dad twice [female and male starring.] I first watched the film with males starring, I was scared at first but then....NO! I DID NOT LIKE IT!!! So then I watched the female version, I L-O-V-E-D IT!!!! So I rate the female version 10/10!!!!
P.S. I was young when I watched the male version so, I bet its a 9/10 or more since its the same but different genders.

A case study of everything wrong with American cinema; that being a) million-dollar cgi overkill b) pointless rebooting where it's not needed c) unhealthy 80s nostalgia and references that we really need to drop d) whorish product placement that would make Adam sander and Michael bay look subtle e) badly written characters playeb by overhyped actors and f) phoned-in politics that despite being phoney get everyone riled up. All in all, pretty bad.

Only watched this 'cuz i heard they all die in the end,
since they made it to the easter egg, not bad in all for a
reboot, certain i heard somewhere the plan is to bring the
original cast back for the next WITH the current, be a task;
the cameos to ensure the cast isn't outshined by a movie 30
years old almost seems little overkill, but it's Feig..
the ghosts again, hit & miss for me; J Michael Fox's
"the Frighteners" carried more weight, so check that one out
after this and make a night of it.

Rated 6/10. A bit above average.

A solid, funny remake that was done a disservice by audiences. Actually does what a remake SHOULD do and updates and recontextualizes the premise of the original for a modern audience. Chris Hemsworth has SURPRISINGLY strong comedic chops!

Loved it. Melissa McCarthy is terrific as always. There are some nice surprises in this one.

It's a fun, mindless movie. Just ignore the fact that they are women. That doesn't really come up as useful.
Don't fetishize identify.

Kevin: Would it be okay if I bring my cat to work sometimes? He has major anxiety problems.
Abby Yates: You know what? I would love to let your cat live here with you, but I have a pretty severe cat allergy.
Kevin: Oh, I don't have a cat. He's a dog. His name's My Cat.
Abby Yates: Your dog's name is My Cat?
Kevin: Mike Hat.
Erin Gilbert: Your dog's name is Mike, last name Hat?
Kevin: Well, his full name is Michael Hat.
Abby Yates: I can't say that I'm allergic to dogs... so.
Kevin: You know, it's all right. He lives with my mum.

But I saw that you had a recommendation letter from Dr. Branum at Princeton. Uh... Their science department is really not what it used to be. And I would consider getting a referral from a more prestigious college.
-More prestigious than Princeton?
This grandfather clock was on the Titanic and was saved by Sir Aldridge. A Romanian woman and her child were forced to leave the lifeboat to make room.
I am a genius. I see things that no one else does. And for it, I am rewarded with nothing but scorn and mockery. Luckily, I am not the only one seeking revenge. Behind these are millions of souls, souls which have been cast aside. Souls who see the world as it truly is, as garbage. Garbage that needs to be cleaned up. They're mostly dudes. When these barriers are destroyed, an army of the undead will return to pester the living.
Patty, I got four funerals this weekend. I can't do them with just one hearse.
-Maybe you could do two at a time.
We're not stacking 'em like flapjacks!
