In September, director of the new Ghostbusters remake Paul Feig tweeted to an annoying heckler of the reboot to “Go f— yourself” in response to his constant bantering on Twitter and remarks against the film. The heckler says it has nothing to do with it being an all female cast, so what is it? What makes this reboot any different than any other unoriginal story that encompasses what Hollywood is made of today? Just for comparison:
- Do comic book lovers cry about the newest sequel or spin off of an established super hero franchise? (ie, Spiderman, Batman, X-Men, The Avengers, Captain America, Superman, etc)
- No, but if Hollywood dare makes Wonder Woman into a movie.
- Do Star Wars and Star Trek nerds cry about reboots and remakes by the same director for both franchises?
- But if they dare even think of stopping Princess Leia slave figures, God help them
Ok, that’s all I can think of at the moment, but seriously, why do we need to be such a sensitive society where all we think about is the wrongs of society with gender, reboots, films, and MPAA warnings? Why can’t we be like good ol’ Europe and worry about violence in films as opposed to petty stuff that just won’t get anyone anywhere?
*Rant over* But, watch some cool Ghostbusters stunt action below, and remember, reboots are the bread of Hollywood today.
