Post Jabootu has touched Ghostbusters

The below video is a summation of all the information regarding the new Ghostbusters movie. It's got some spoilers. So be aware that you might be getting some of the plot information by watching this video.

I would boil the problem down to 3 things. Number One, you have a studio exec who wouldn't know Talent if it bit her on the leg.Two, you have a director who is wrong for this type of film. Three, you have a
spin machine that seems to think that it's ok to attack your audience rather than listen to it.

Combine all three and you have a Jabootu holiday in the making.

I watched the 5 minute video of the online critic a few weeks ago who said he just didn't think it looked interesting and was going to skip it. Which touched off a firestorm of attacks on how he hates women, even though he only mentioned the female cast ONCE in passing. Looks like a bomb and with the attacks on the fans the studio and supporters seem to be frantically digging their own grave...

Midnight's Edge talked about that 2 minutes hate fest. And how... Selective it was.

Well, I'm definitely avoiding it because I hate all women and not because I am sick to death of tired retreads of movies that were near-perfect in their original incarnations and stood just fine by themselves, having nothing more to say on their subjects. FWIW, my complete refusal to acknowledge the existence of Ghostbusters 2 is also rooted in my deep-seated mysogyny.

To put it another way, I am going to treat this like the latest ill-advised go at the Fantastic Four and wait to watch the 20 minutes abridged takedown version that will surely turn up eventually as a part of the "Everything Wrong With [insert film here]" series on YouTube.

So all the men in the movie are going to be incompetent nasty morons? Isn't that attitude actually rather sexist and misogynist itself when you consider the implication that women can't succeed at anything if they have to deal with capable and intelligent men?

And why a human villain? Wasn't a horde of angry ghosts bad enough?

And ugh, Slimer. I remember how he dragged down the original animated show. They actually think he could carry a movie on his own?

Mercy, I'd commented before I watched the video clips, ack it's far worse than even I thought!!! Earlier I was more or less indifferent to the success or failure of this movie- now I hope it crashes and burns- hard...

I wanted to give the movie a chance. I'm not down on remakes as a rule; some of the best films I know are remakes. but that first trailer had only one joke that worked, and another that was original to John Candy and has been worn thin. This movie isn't going to work. It just isn't.

Currently trapped between this reality and the next battling rabid stuffed alligators in order to keep you all safe. Ingrates.

Sorry to say Gamera977 but it looks like you didn't get your wish. While the film did technically crash, it didn't burn. The only consulation is that the movie will not be released in China so Sony will not be bailed out.

The next few weeks will determine the viability of the franchise. But forces are aligning to attempt to make a sequel.

Here are two videos that explain the situation.

and...well... screw it, why not?

Well, no skin off my back either way. I won't be seeing it. It just honked me off when the studio decided insulting the fan base was the way to drum up support.

Has anyone else noticed how most of the defenders of this movie online are basically saying that 'If you don't like this movie u r deh stoopid manchild that hates wimmin lol.' I mean, I hear nothing about the film itself that makes me want to see it, but I am repeatedly assured that if I DON'T see it, it's because I am a loser that hates women.

They're starting to sound like this:
