I take back any negative things I said about the new Ghostbusters. This movie was very funny, very action-packed, and if I’m gonna be honest, the ghosts were notably creepier than the original film’s. But above all, there are two things that NEED to be said.
1. We all owe Paul Feig an apology. This movie was an excellent reimagining of the Ghostbusters, and while it may not be superior to the original, it is definitely a lot of fun, to the point that I can forgive Sony for not giving us a Ghostbusters 3. Mr. Feig truly did his best with this film and it paid off.
2. Whoever was in charge of the editing for the trailers needs to be fired. The trailers to this movie were VERY misleading as to how much fun and humorous this movie was, and that definitely had an impact on its box office earnings. Some of the jokes do indeed fall flat, but for some reason the trailers chose to go with the weakest jokes in the entire film.
Please do yourself a favor and see this movie. I was entirely wrong about the potential for this film. All four women were really great and funny, and this is coming straight from the mouth of someone who usually doesn’t like Melissa McCarthy’s characters. You will not be disappointed.
What she means:
In the Ghostbusters remake, when Rowan takes over Kevin, he says "I hope this guy can ride a motorcycle," implying that if his host body has this skill, he will automatically have it too. Additionally, he comments on how much he enjoys using Kevin's muscles ("I should have worked out when I was alive") as if he has this strength because his host body has this strength. BUT, when he is using Abby as his host body, he is able to effortlessly lift Holtzmann off her feet with only one hand. At this time, the strength is implied to have come from his ghostly powers. Why comment on Kevin's muscles when we've seen that he can use this sort of strength in any host body? Similarly, as Abby he is able to turn his head 180°. If his host body has to be able to ride a motorcycle for him to be able to ride a motorcycle, shouldn't his host body have to be able to turn its head 180° for him to be able to do this? So does Rowan have these sorts of powers in any body and he was just making sassy comments?? Or is he limited by the abilities of his body bodies and Abby actually secretly has super strength and can turn her head 180°??? I need answers!!!
