i'm tired of ranting about this thing.

About the only good thing that came out of it is that it seems to have killed feigs career and slowed down mcarthy's.

Sandra Bullock, who is starring in the all-female spin-off of Ocean's Eleven, is aware of the backlash that the Ghostbusters cast received.

When it was announced there would be an all-female cast of Ghostbusters, those actresses were put through hell. Has it been the same for the cast of Oceans 8?

They did put them through hell. And I’m still trying to figure out why. Forget what the final product was! There were four or five of the most talented comediennes in that film. Everyone should’ve just taken a breath and said, “let’s see what happens.” It doesn’t take just five people to make a movie. It’s pretty much like around 300. So I keep reminding everybody, if you hate my film remember there’s another 299 people all around me. We’re not a reboot. We’re just a this is what’s happening in 2017. It’s not even a passing of the torch. It’s a parallel story of another family member that was raised in the same family Danny Ocean was and what happens when Debbie steps out of jail with all of these amazing, powerful women.

she's got to promote this thing. we get it. but no one can be that clueless on why people thought feigbusters was a bad idea.

all you had to do was see feigs previous work to know it was NOT the right fit, and read all the behind the scenes info to know it wasn't being done for the right reasons.

if you didn't, you where either a fan boy who loved anything with the ghostbusters logo on it and couldn't be subjective, or one of andrews infamous plants.

and then there are people who just love paul feig movies for whatever reason, and they are a whole nother interesting category.

whoops, I just triggered people. incoming reverse rage nonsensical argument alert . that's my argument and i'm sticking too it. you will most likely disagree vehemently .

Melissa McCarthy is still at it.

The Ghostbusters remake failed because "people are afraid of women." Apparently.

By far, one of the worst f*cking movies I've ever seen. Maybe THE worst. "Meet The Feebles" is pretty bad but it also wasn't trying to be any good.

F*ck everyone involved in the Ghostbusters reboot right in the goddamn ear.

I feel like no one is actually clicking on that link because it leads to an article about Survivor.

They don't need to click on a link or even read it, just need Andrew to stir up drama about a 2 year old movie and they start right where they left off.

You're not wrong, on either point.

i had to search out the story just for morbid curiosity. she's not promoting anything ....for some reason, someone randomly decided to bring up the 'GB16 failure' again for no reason at all.

Yeah, like, does no one see a problem with that? It's ****ed up how people are quick to react and get angry, especially for a group of people who like to pretend to be intellectuals.

the article does bring up her saying why people are so afraid of women its fascinating to Mccarthy. For some reason I get 403 forbidden error when I try and post said quote

Unless she says that Russian spies and trolls were involved, I won't believe her.
