I feel the same way about Ghostbusters as I do about Back to the Future, in that it's an alright film with a couple of shit sequels and it was pretty funny, but I have no fucking clue how it has such a strong, vocal fanbase.
I mean, it's just Ghostbusters. Robocop has a legitimate claim to being the best film ever made, but where are the legions of fans of that film? Lots of people slated that one's remake, but there were no hardcore Robocop fanboys threatening to kill people on Twitter.
I realise you could probably say the same thing about The Terminator, except that it's not a comedy. It's had shit sequels and remake reboots with too many women in them, and at most people gave a resigned sigh. The trouble is obviously that with Ghostbusters they were deliberately and heavy handedly shoving the HEY LOOK THEY HAVE VAGINAS THIS TIME thing down your Jap's eye, but like I said. I don't understand were that bothered, you must surely have realised Hollywood is only good for shitting over old names and squeezing blood out of stones these days.
