Re: Ghostbusters (the new one)

Sadly it sounds like a sequel is unlikely, the film hasn't done very well commercially, or at least not enough to justify a sequel. A shame really, if only because various knuckledraggers online will probably take great delight in that. I think audiences just aren't hugely receptive to reboots of we...

Re: Ghostbusters (the new one)

I gave it a re-watch yesterday. It's a shame they set up the dance number scene and then didn't put it in the final film (opting to kind of put it in the credits instead). Aside from the fact it makes that bit now look odd and rather pointless, I would have liked a dance number! And they could easil...

Re: Suicide Squad: You've gotta be Joker

Ugh, please no Divergent. That actress and the whole franchise is the film equivalent of scratching a chalkboard. My point wasn't about the quality of the film, but that there's money to be made by making diverse movies. Though Divergent has fallen so fast, they won't even give the final instalment...

Re: Suicide Squad: You've gotta be Joker

Don't see why people are so fussed about the lack of a Black Widow film, Ruffalo's Hulk and Hawkeye haven't had ones either. Black Widow was pretty much co-lead in The Winter Soldier anyway. And she always has a big role in all the MCU films she's been in. Not to mention Scarlet Witch in Age of Ultr...

Still don't think the trailer was all that bad. Comedy trailers always play broad.

The major jokes in it are the two leads blowing raspberries when high...

While that is an annoying stereotype, the villain in the film isn't specifically resentful towards women, he's resentful towards everyone.

Andy Garcia's character gets the best line probably. Please don't let Fall Out Boy near the theme s...

Re: Ghostbusters (the new one)

I think I've just seen a lot of trailers which gave a rather misleading impression of the film itself. Comedy ones in particular tend to go for lowest common denominator, which is why here we get a vomit gag and a lame Exorcist gag. Of course that might be what the whole film is like!
