For the few months, a lot of ire and hatred has been blasted in one direction, namely towards the new Ghostbusters reboot. It really is insane how much hatred the movie has gotten, especially since it has yet to be released. The trailer for the movie has become one of the most, if not the most, hated movie trailer on YouTube of all time. There are even top YouTube personalities like James Rolfe (Cinemassacre, AVGN) who have vowed to not review this movie.
I get it, I really do. The original Ghostbusters is a beloved film that is big part of many 30+ year old’s childhoods. I’m very fond of the 1984 original, even though I was born 2 years after its release. But let me set the record straight: 1) this movie is NOT a sequel, 2) it is NOT trying to be the original, and 3) if you give it a chance, you just might be as surprised as I was.
