    I don't know where it will end. I guess it is catered toward Millennials that weren't watching movies in the 1980s. I just don't get it. I see all these pictures today for the new Ghostbusters with Melinda McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and 2 others. Why can't they just grab that group of 4 woman and design a script around them like they did for Bridesmades?

    I was a kid in the 80s and loved Ghostbusters, Friday the 13th, Fast Times, Back to the Future, Poltergeist, etc. I don't see the point in remaking all of those movies.

    This generation has more technology in their hands than any other in history. Use it, be creative, and stop ripping off the past.

    that movie is going to be utter shit and the liberal, hipster, feminist, faggots will claim its because of the sexist society that refuses to support AMAZING actresses.

    Meanwhile you have jaba the hut and patrick ewing as two of the starring roles.

    I cant really make out the death I guess thats what they were trying to show at the end with the still frames but it doesnt look like anything to me. However you can tell the impact of how horrifying it was by watching the crew members reaction at 1:05 , he jumps out of his fucking skin

    This is so on the money on how a Hollywood remake of this classic would turn out. Rhett would be wimpier than Ashely Wilkes and Scarlet would go full out Rambo on the Union army. All the black slaves would be sassing their masters like Chris Rock. You know, it would be totally realistic unlike the 1939 version.

    If nobody goes they won't make anymore. It's the American way isn't it?

    I never thought the original Ghostbusters was laugh-out-loud funny. A lot of silly special effects and Bill Murray nonchalantly cracking wise.

    The only sequel I want to see remade is: Apocolypse Millenial
    A crack team of Calvary Helicopter pilots bomb San Fran and all their hippy, beard wearing, tattoo millenials. (I blame millenials for today's crap movies reboots)

    the director/writer is 52 years old. melissa mccarthy is 44, kristen wig is 41. so what does this movie have to do with "This generation has more technology in their hands than any other in history"?
