So basically...it looks like a Paul Feig movie?MC1980 said:That looks like a not very good Paul Feig movie.
Holy hell, you've nailed it. Seriously. This is precisely what it feels like.webkilla said:If this was an all-male cast, it would be an Adam Sandler movie. Actually comparing this to Pixels for how its treating the IP its working with seems ironically apt.
The grit is gone. The original movies were all grounded in a slice-of-life realism (with ghosts and anti-ghost tech ofc)
Take the token black member of the team: Originally it was a black every-man who was just in it for a paycheck, who got in over his head. Now its a sassy black mammy with street-smarts - can you say painfully generic stereotype?

You can imagine WINSTON smacking RAY in the face as he lays possessed on the ground and Ernie Hudson screaming "THE POWER OF WINSTON COMPELS YOU!" with Dan Akroyd going "That's gonna leave a mark!" afterwards? Truly?Kuala BangoDango said:I was actually pleasantly surprised by the trailer. I thought it was decently funny, but then I am into cheesy humor. I can easily imagine the original characters doing these exact things and making the same jokes.
Now, whether they put the best parts from the movie into the trailer or not we'll find out.
I do agree though that some of the "Hey, we're scientists! See? Scienc-y stuff! (ala the dry-eraseboard, etc.)" may have been a bit overplayed but, due to it being a short trailer, some of the context of those situations wasn't shown so I'd have to see the full events to better judge.
Effects looked neat? Really?Mahorfeus said:Well, I was forced at fork-point to watch the trailer. It... wasn't that bad. Maybe I am just desensitized to shitty movies, but to me this just looks mediocre, a rental at best. Maybe it's just getting crucified since it's a continuation of a beloved franchise.
I thought the ghost effects looked pretty neat. The piano tune didn't do it for me; hitting the nostalgia keys worked for say, Jurassic World, but it just seemed out of place here.
Not Winston, no. Winston's character was way too serious for something like that. But I can easily imagine Ray doing it to Peter, or Peter to Ray.otakon17 said:You can imagine WINSTON smacking RAY in the face as he lays possessed on the ground and Ernie Hudson screaming "THE POWER OF WINSTON COMPELS YOU!" with Dan Akroyd going "That's gonna leave a mark!" afterwards?

You understand the entire point of that joke was how disproportionate the payments were, right? Like, are you seriously misinterpreting a joke to try and justify why they can't have a Chris Hemsowrth that's no more dressed down than Janeane was?ravenshrike said:You mean the particle accelerators which were built on top of three mortgages on a single property with $97,000 a year INTEREST payments?
If nothing else, he'sHappyninja42 said:Oh, well that's promising at least. I find him pretty damn funny, so I think he'll be able to carry his weight in this comedy just fine. Hopefully they'll have some good chemistry between them, and make for some funny scenes.
Aren't you the one who basically hates how the film industry is filled with constant reboots and sequels? I might be mixing you up with someone else, but I could have sworn you've made multiple threads on the issue.WinterWyvern said:Aww darn. I for one was kind of intrigued by the idea of a movie with four female protagonists that don't follow typical Hollywood beauty doll standards and who actually crack jokes.
I still am intrigued, that movie is worth seeing on such concept alone. But I'm sad to see that it will likely flop, and we won't see a movie with four female protagonists that don't follow typical Hollywood beauty doll standards and who actually crack jokes... for another century.
