Leslie Jones gotta eat!
But you wanted to. We all know your type.
Mr. Plinkett's review of the Ghostbusters reboot:
I think his critique is spot on. The original film was lightning in a bottle.
This film tried to remake a classic with annoying, unfunny characters and it failed miserably.
It helps if your director... directed.
Nope, I still like "Ghostbusters: Answer The Call".
Better luck next time, Plinkett.
Was the "answer the call" subtitle added for the DVD release? I don't remember it during any of the movie promo's.
It was in some ads, it was on one of the posters, it's in the end credits.
Sony seemed to wiffle-waffle on it, but then it solidified by the DVD.
Although, on Starz on-demand, it's still just "Ghostbusters (2016)".
This is Plinkett's best review, it's better than the Prequel reviews. Spot on indexed.
Yeah, he's a lot more focused on analysis as opposed to the nitpicking that makes up the prequel reviews.
I am not even sure if I would bother firesticking this movie.
Is the inevitable prequel already greenlighted?
No ghosts. Just 2 entertaining hours of shrill racism! Thanks no problem, Hollywood. Please send my fat writer's fee by Western Union.
Well done! Spite can be an ugly emotion, yet here you are turning it towards your enjoyment.
As someone who's watched every square inch of the prequel DVDs, and every square inch of the Ghostbusters DVDs, he did better with the prequels.
With this one, he was more concerned with molding things to a narrative to please bashers.
Things that contradict the narrative are in the DVD, things that answer his rhetorical questions are in the DVD, so going through, I know he knew better.
And it didn't have to be.
He could have pooped on the film with his opinion without being dishonest.
If he'd stuck to "I don't like the way they did so much improv", he would've been fine.
They've been slacking for awhile.
The "Force Awakens", and "Rogue One", ones were half-assed too I thought.
Nope, you're just delusional and don't want to admit the movie you promoted for over a year turned out to be crap.
"Your opinion is wrong!!".
Yeah, have fun with that.
Naw, I wouldn't go that far, but this was far better than his review for TFA for damn sure. There was some actual attempt at explaining how movies work and not an hour of "but wyminz sux lolol."
It also explained to me why the original Ghostbusters worked because the appeal of that one flew over my head the first time I watched it. I give it a 7/10.
