via Why I Will Not be in Attendance for Ghostbusters… — The Creative Works of James Harrington

I am not planning on seeing the new Ghostbusters reboot.  It just doesn’t look funny to me, and I am a woman, so it has nothing to do with an all-female cast.  The trailers just don’t grab me and the music isn’t something luring me there either.  Many of the same reasons James Harrington’s blog post speaks about are some of my reasons.  Plus, after reading several different comments made my the actors, studio, producers, etc., you couldn’t pay…OK, you could pay me to see the movie as I am poor, but said payment would need to be more than just the price of the ticket before I’d go.

The Husband is planning on seeing the movie because he is a big fan of Melissa McCarthy and he feels the movie trailers are indeed funny.  I have no problem with this.  I want him to see the movies he wants to see.  This one I’m not seeing with him.

About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.

    Remakes are always a toss-up for people who remember and liked the original. “Screen Junkies” had a good joke about this: why see the remade “Ghostbusters,” which critics say threatens to make the franchise unfunny and kill it, when you can see “Ghostbusters 2,” which was already unfunny and killed the franchise!

    It’s not a bad movie, but it is not that good either. There are some parts that are funny and some of the graphics are good. I think they could have done a better job.
