woohooligan NEW! I need your help! Check out my goals for 2016!
I fucking love the new Ghostbusters!

Mind you that I wasn't just a fan of the original movie, I grew up on Ghostbsusters. I own the entire cartoon series on DVD and binged the entire thing again just last year. I never did watch that horrid bullshit with the gorilla, that was just flat-out stupid. But I loved the originals, and I love the reboot!

They got several really good comedians, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon being a couple of my favorites in particular, and they called back to the original in the ways you would expect, without making the film too predictable. Save Rick Moranis and Harold Ramis (RIP), all the major cast members got cameos, even including Sigourney Weaver and Annie Pots (who played Janine). Incidentally, Janine was a really cool character in the cartoon series as well. EDIT: Oh, and the film is dedicated to Ramis, who co-wrote the first two screenplays with Dan Aykroyd.

Without wanting to give too much away, the writers specifically addressed all the BS flaming of the film that happened years(?) before it was released solely because of the possibility of an all-female cast and I think they did a good job of it. It's weaved into the story such that you have to be looking for it to see it, otherwise it just looks like what you would expect from these characters, and to be honest, that's how it should be if they're going to address that kind of baseless trolling.

And like the first film, it's fun, it's original (as much as a reboot can be), and it's FUCKING FUNNY! Which was the whole point in the first place. Seriously, you should see this film! :D

Did you enjoy this? Want more? All of the bonus panels and alternate endings are now available on the official Woohooligan Patreon page!

Harold Ramis does get a cameo of a sort. To quote https://www.yahoo.com/movies/ghostbusters-all-the-callbacks-cameos-and-232152507.html
"When Columbia Dean Harold Filmore (Charles Dance) pays a visit to Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) reminding her that her big tenure review is coming up, the camera lingers on a bust in the hallway outside her office. It’s Ramis."

I loved this movie :) I have NO idea what all the fuss is about to be honest, I loved the original, I loved the cartoon and I really found some of this movie a little more enjoyable, NOT because they are women but because the characters were enjoyable. I wanted to see a little more of slimer because he's a personal fave of mine but none the less I laughed and didn't actually find myself thinking about how it would have gone this way or that had they been men. I also think if you haven't SEEN a film then you shouldn't really be going into mass speculation about how this or that could be/should be, it's just my opinion. I think too many people get caught up in picking a part everything someone said, does or doesn't do. Just enjoy the freaking movie, or don't it's your choice. If a directer, actor or person involved in the film is douchey then don't follow them, don't rip apart a movie you haven't seen just cause you think they are not honoring Men, fans and the like. I still go to see Tom Cruise movies even though I think he just might be a little out of touch with reality... but I think he's a good actor, so as long as they're NOT being overtly racist, sexist, killing puppies, the next hitler or punching people, who really cares, it doesn't take away from the content of the movie. I just go see the movie without listening to all the hype (because the last three movies I listened to hype about either blew monkey balls or just plain put me to sleep)... it's all in your own perspective.
