I'm really looking forward to it, despite a couple of autistic bloggers crying about it. Not sure why such an over emotional reaction to a film is happening.
Really impressed with the way it's being marketed as well.

When I said "defend the male version" I meant "defend the male version of the ditzy blonde" which is directly and singularly what I was talking about. Well done for fully ignoring that to launch your own speech, though.

Allot of her lines were just tedious. Like the one where Moz tells her he only sells weed and hash so she goes and starts asking him if he has various letters he can sell her.
Yes that is the joke but it felt like they were just extending the running time.
>Portraying women positively is brilliant.
Not too brilliantly of course. Female characters should have flaws and I think there has been some laziness in writing where women are just portrayed as either too-highly strung or having martyr complexes as their only issues.
In reality its really jarring when tv shows have great characters playing against 2d characters of either sex who never come across as human beings.

I saw it last night. It's not good. The vast majority of comedies aren't so that's no real shocker. But it certainly is nowhere near as good as the original (which I wasn't even that fond of) and none of the performances held a candle to the original cast.
The whole "people hate it because women" thing probably has some merit, but 1) people would have hated ANY Ghostbusters remake because remakes are almost always shit and 2) plenty of female lead comedies come out without getting any kind of negative attention so it's not just "they're women" but "they're arbitrarily changing the old male characters in to females" which is nothing but true.

It's not their censorship rules that have forestalled its release, though. It's the fact that neither of the previous two Ghostbusters films were released in China either, so the franchise essentially means nothing to the Chinese - most of them haven't even heard of it. It's pretty certain that Sony pictures will have accounted for it not being released theatrically in China already. As it stands, all indicators are that it'll easily break the $50 million opening weekend BO target.

I'm really impressed with the marketing to, such an unexpected saturation, train stations, publicly funded news providers, obscure image boards.

Do your research. The reason why this one isn't being released (as indeed the original two weren't) is because China does not allow movies involving ghosts, spirits etc.

It sounds wonderful. I'm packing up and heading to this atheist utopia on the other side of the Himalayas right away.
|>>|| No. 20959
Why do you imagine that the previous Ghostbusters movies weren't released in China? You're both right.

It is pretty fucking bad, but not in a laughable way. It's just very shit. It's one of those films where you keep glancing at your watch a lot, it feels very, very long.

The whole Chinese cultural thing with ghosts and spirits is fascinating, even secular types are into it. My best paid exorcisms have been with Chinese people.
|>>|| No. 20965
When I do exorcisms, Chinese people tend to make larger donations than others. Donations are voluntary, but it feels like payment. Not sure why that was unclear earlier.

I want you to know even though I have never met you. I think you are a charlatan and I hate you.

Don't be so judgemental lad, he might not be a charlatan, just a honest to goodness
crazy person deluded fool religious nutjob.
I can't decide if I have more respect for a charlatan than a God botherer, come to think of it.

Only stupid cunts believe in the fucking made up god that they're too fucking stupid to realise it's all fucking made up.

Great, now you're going to start a religion cunt-off where some other cunt comes along and smugly points out how bigoted modern athiesm supposedly is with your post as the proof.

Just so this thread does actually have something funny in it, here's something made a few years ago by a great bunch of lads to go out on the lash with.

Months, literally months, of endless stupid web-wide cunt-offs, and for what? Another mediocre American "comedy" where the punchline to every single joke is either "fart noise" or shouting. Imagine what could have been achieved if those man hours had been spent doing literally bugger all else? Even if they'd been used to dig a big hole at least then we could put a fence around it and keep all the morons who picked a side in this mind boggling cyber shitfest down there.
I fucking hate the Yanks. Why don't they hurry up and shoot themselves into extinction already?

I haven't really been following it, but it was/is really annoying how it popped up in the weirdest of places. I suppose this is a future now, what with our telecommunication, there will always be cunt-offs about fuck-all.

Don't marginalize the women who contributed to the shitshow with your sexist language you mansplaining shitlord.

I'm tempted to go see it just to spite the bellends.
|>>|| No. 21003
>>21001 Do it, it's actually a pretty fun movie if you don't go with any preconceptions or baggage, or are a raging impotent misogynist. The Kate McKinnon character's a real show stealer, and the effects are pretty awesome.

Wait until you can pirate it, it's not worth it. Nothing to do with the politics surrounding it, it's just one of those tiresomely predictable average comedies. I laughed about twice as much watching the new Independence Day, and that wasn't even meant to be funny for the most part.
If you''re the sort of person who can happily watch multiple episodes of The Big Bang Theory without wondering what the fuck you are doing with your life then maybe you'd enjoy it.

So you can't dislike films with female leads or you're a misogynist?
|>>|| No. 21008
>>21005 No-one said that, teenladm8. What you got there is a propositional fallacy.
Not everyone who dislikes the film is a misogynist. But misogynists won't like the film.

I wouldn't be surprised, judging from what I saw of him in the Half in the Bag posted in this thread, but what I also learnt from that is that he is a total mentalist, so we can easily disregard his opinion (and his film) as worth our time.
Or maybe they just want to watch a silly film about ghosts without getting involved in all the politics?
|>>|| No. 21037
I felt a great disturbance in the thread, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in a cunt off and were suddenly silenced.
