I've seen nothing to get me excited about this so far, except for the teaser with the car. Everything else I've heard about it just makes me feel "meh". I don't know why it seems they are pushing the "kids" movie angle on it.
I’m guessing the consensus is pretty split on this one. On one hand, I see members getting excited over the actors (same here), while other members don’t seem to like the angle the film is going for. Would anyone say this is a “Right tools, Wrong direction” project? I hope it doesn’t end up that way.
I have confidence in the director because he really seems to want to put out something good, but I also have a huge problem with it revolving around kids. Blues Brothers 2000 had a kid in it and we all see how that went. I hope I'm wrong and want to be wrong, but I just don't see it living up to the originals in terms of quality. I could absolutely be wrong. I hope I am. So far it seems like another "Down on their luck" story. I don't get why they just won't go the francise route and have the original Ghostbusters be the franchise starters now running a company with franchises across the world. Showcase new teams of adults fighting ghosts. Leave so much open for new possiblities. Instead it seems like we are getting a retired Ghostbuster or two living in a small town, maybe trying to avoid their old life? It better not be another Luke Skywalker let down.
