    The trailer is OK. I've liked Paul Feig's films and I like the cast, so those are my main grounds for optimism. On the other hand, not like worthwhile remakes/sequels (or whatever this is) are common, so I guess we'll see. Hope it's good anyway, will really annoy knuckledraggers across the internet if it is.

    I'm not sure about this one.

    It might be good, but it might just be too stiff. If the humor feels forced, it won't work.

    Some of the trailer made me chuckle, some of it felt forced. So I'll just have to wait and see.

    It's a remake of a classic film with four women in the lead roles (one of whom is Melissa McCarthy). I invite you to take a guess as to what the comments are like.

    The thing currently has upvotes 5,097 and downvotes 4,978. The comments are full of really sexist trout.


    (edited this one)
    "N***** comedy = screaming as loud as you can"

    "Oh nice, a girl with hair that stops at her forehead, 2 fat chicks, a fat black woman, let me guess, one of them is lesbo, one is genderfluid? Sponsored by buzzfeed and tumblr? Comedy died when women started forcing jokes, way to ruin a classic "

    "why would them remake ghostbusters with 3 woman and a black man"

    "For full political correctness someone of them must be lesbian and another one - mentally retarded."

    "This is why women shouldn't have been given the vote. Slippery slope."

    etc etc etc

    I imagine they posted the comments on their way to the nearest Trump rally.

    I'll maybe go see it, the trailer was just a regular trailer - nothing good, nothing bad. I just don't like remakes in general so I went in with a frowny face.

    Of course I didn't even glance at the YouTube comments because I knew the utter sludge that would be in there. I'm surprised any of you did, unless you like feeling mad and sad at the same time.

    I checked the comments too, the top one is this: "As much as I love the idea of the all girl Ghostbuster team.. I much prefer the idea of talented writers."

    Pretty much sums up my views. The trailer didn't even get a chuckle out of me, I was pretty disappointed. The dry wit of the original seems to have been replaced with a mixture of "hey this is slightly awkward right" and screaming and yelling. I appreciate that's more appealing to modern audiences and I'm the weirdo for not liking that, but I'm struggling to see more than a typical "hey remember this from your childhood? it's back!" Hollywood movie.
