Ghostbusters New Movie Trailer

Recommended Posts

Which I think is fucking HILARIOUS because the cast literally looks like a gang of SJW's straight from the labrynthian, dungeon like depths of Tumblr.

It has nothing to do with how they look. It could be four bimbos or it could be Adam Sandler and his retarded SNL friends in drag (they'd do it in a heartbeat), the result would be the same: an unfunny cashgrab. It's not about the all-woman cast at all, the problem lies in the writing and directing. Even the trailer reeks of a hackjob and reading about the leaked script and the early internal version completes the picture. Sony decided to "revive a franchise" they own and they most probably did a dire job.

I just have to wonder if they're playing up this gender drama on purpose in order to save face, like the NK drama when they took down The Interview for being a steaming pile of garbage. Their writers and producers may be clueless hacks, but their PR office deserves a huge bonus for this spin.

Something something, concerned about ethics in ghostbusting journalism.

Can you please stop lying? This is shameful, stop warping reality to fit your bullshit theories. Everyone I know of and cared about that sort of movies was positively hyped about the new Mad Max, buying tickets for the midnight premiere and everything.

Well... if YOU didn't see anything, I guess it never happened.
Hullo, what's this then?

Look at the ratings! Unless they magically got turned around AFTER the movie got released and everyone realized they were filthy MRA mysoginists and started upvoting like crazy, your claim reeks of "I will say anything to prove my point". Is that you, mr. Trump?

Or it means the misogynists have even less clout than we think they did. Or most people, anyway... personally, I always knew they were utterly impotent howler monkeys with approximately zero influence on the outside world.

It's a bit like lifting a rock and seeing all the gross bugs and worms underneath isn't it?

Captain Capitalism is the resident economist of the mano/androsphere.

Stopped reading right there. Is that site some sort of a wretched GG/MRA nest? They probably have articles on why packed water and sliced bread is akin to toxic feminism, so I'll gladly let you have whatever you think you are having by making this "argument".

There you go. That is the kind of people that campaigned against last year's Mad Max, and are now doing their "best" to smear new Ghostbusters.

Seriously this just looks objectively like shit.

Genders got nothing to do with it, Mad Max did fucking great despite the fact the movie should have just been called Fury Road (it was fucking awesome though)

Well I mean, they're based entirely around the excessive amount of sexualization done to lesbians. Hell, they're literally saying that they'd watch something that otherwise bores them for lesbian sex. I'd imagine that's fairly easy to find questionable.

Also, I don't really see how this movie's using women as a marketing stunt at all. I mean I guess having a woman star in something that isn't a "chick flick" is a marketing stunt of its own, but considering the fact that literally having a woman that stars in something that isn't tailored to women causes publicity really reflects badly on the film industry, not the people pulling the "stunt."


Come on man we've had fucking Alien for years now.. the controversy is the movie is a fucking cash grab that they've deliberately gone and given it a pussy shield.

I have more new amazing ideas for new amazing movies.

Let's reboot 007 and replace James Bond with a lesbian character who goes around sleeping with other lesbians while killing the bad guys. Let's also reboot Kill Bill and replace Beatrix Kiddo with Bill's ex-boyfriend, so if people don't like these type reboots they can also be called homophobic.


EDIT: I was meant to say that the 007 idea would be fucking dope, Perfect Dark: The Movie plus Lesbians.

I'm actually a fairly left-wing person, i'm a full-on libertarian socialist, I've voted Labour and Green my whole life, I don't care about diversifying casts and shit, whether its intentional or not, it can be great or it can be shit. Star Trek is fantastic for the very reason they were intentionally diverse with their casting. LGBT characters are great, Female leads are also awesome, Ghost In The Shell, Alien, Terminator 2, Puella Madoka..

But this is clearly a fucking cash-grab with a pussy shield, and everyone fucking knows it.

It doesn't tho. You not liking something (for whatever reason) doesn't that others don't like it too, or that it is "objectively" bad.

Ok I over-exaggerated.. as someone who hates all this Identity Politics he-said/she-said SJW/MRA whatever crap.. What I meant to say is, the criticism of this film does not appear to have anything to do with the gender thing, and people are making it about gender because thats what bored people who view the world through Breitbart/Buzzfeed articles do, they turn everything into identity politics bull-shit.

Whether you are honest or not, it doesn't change the fact that large portion of this negativity quite obviously comes from the MRA circles, and that people who are unthinkingly jumping on the hate bandwagon (and go on claiming how "everyone" hates this "objectively" bad trailer) are helping the MRA agenda, in a way.

MRAs are gonna complain about everything.. they're worse than SJWs.. but most people don't care about them. They tried to get people to boycott Mad Max cos it wwas "Feminist Mind Poision", me and all my dudemanbros loved that film. Alt-Right types tried to get people to boycott Star Wars cos of Finn being black (which was completely possible in the Canon because STORMTROOPERS WEREN'T ALL CLONES BY THE TIME OF THE EMPIRE).. no one gave a fuck, we watched that shit and loved it.

Now a lot of people see this trailer and expect it to be awful, the same way we expect that new Sacha Baron Cohen movie to be absolutely awful, the same way Pixel was awful, because Comedy Holly-Wood is frankly, fucking awful nowadays. Its a declining industry, Evan Goldberg used to be able to write great shit, but by the time of The Interview (which was an alright movie, just didn't showcase the writers strength) it was clear that at least him or the people he collaborated with confused big-budgets for quality.. Ben Stiller can be an amazing comedy director and writer, Tropic Thunder is one of the greatest Satirical works in the history of film-writing, come Zoolander 2, its shitty pop-culture references and inconsistent pandering (making jokes about Genderfluid people and than preaching about Body Positivity). Hollywood is declining, thats the point, to many rehashes, reboots, etc. etc.

Incredible, you seriously can't dislike something anymore, because it might propagate some retard's hate agenda. Fuck that attitude, I don't give a shit who else shares my dislike for the trailer, but you will change absolutely nothing by telling me I should like it, because it's the noble thing to do. According to you and your own little hugbox. How utterly arrogant.

Edit: heh, critical negative added.

Wanted to say this but less aggressively. I honestly hate all this SJW/GamerGate, whatever shit, its called Identity Politics and its the opiate of the masses for 2016, I'm sick of going on a video about gaming or something and some idiot who thinks he's original and funny goes "Hahaha take that Anita Sarkeesian" like, WTF DOES SHE HAVE TO DO WITH THIS? I wish we could go back to the days before this shit man.. i'm done with this shit.

ClickBait.. thats what it is... Identity Politics ClickBait.. its a huge industry.. pick your target Audience:

INSECURE YOUNG MEN..

Identify specific insecurities that they have, or alternatively, posture broadly held insecurities in a manner that makes it appear like they are the primary victims of it, e.g. :

SEXUAL/ROMANTIC FAILURE WITH WOMEN (specific to insecure young men), UNEMPLOYMENT (broad, but you can make it targeted towards men).

Write a captivating headline that panders to those insecurities but leaves the subject matter obscure, and fill it with whatever you like, most people don't really read the entire article:

HOW FEMINISM MADE ELLIOT RODGERS A KILLER (its captivating, a bit extreme, but more importantly it PANDERS), HOW PUTTING THE PUSSY ON THE PEDESTAL IS PUTTING MEN OUT OF WORK.

You can do the formula for SJWs as well, but we're all pretty familiar with that because of BuzzFeed.

@CreamCheese

Are you seriously writing about "SJWs" again after seeing that site and acknowledging kind of stuff that gets published there? One would think that being against such things classifies as common human decency, not "SJWism". Like what you displayed in your comment... before you decided to end it with a variant of "those damn SJWs that oppose these guys are just as bad".
Are you feeling somehow superior because you declared that you are above both "sides"? (again, impressive how someone keeps subscribing to ye olde "two sides" fallacy even when presented with the kind of insanity and hate speech that is common among members of one of these "sides").
