I will watch this film because, as a Ghostbusters fan, I have to, and will explode in my seat.
The more I see about it, the more I hate it.
It doesn't look like a bad movie, it looks like a bad fan film.
Just saw a pic of all 4 ladies in uniform, and it's terrible.
First off, the new uniforms have no logos on them.
C'mon... any business with uniforms, no matter how cheap, has it's name and logo on it.
The originals each had nametags and the logo patched on the shoulder.
Also, the two ladies are just too fat.
Not that the orginal cast were buff or the picture of health, but they at least looked
like they were capable of running around with a proton pack strapped to them.
Kate McKinnon is kind of pulling it off, and Kristin Wiig look alright, but the other two *shakes head*
Then there's the car.
First off, movie or not, no legitimate business would put it's logo UNDER the trim.
That's a stupid design choice, although it's less of a choice than being done simply because that's how the first movie did it.
Then there's the selection of vehicle itself.
I get that you want to go with a 1984 version to remind people the original was made in 1984,
but using an 84 Cadillac Hearse is ugly.
Yeah, I know the original was an ambulance/hearse model, but it had some kind of style to it.
American cars of the 80s are REALLY ugly, but if you're going to go with an '84 anything, I'd rather you just choose something different.
It doesn't look right anyway.
Also, the paintjob.
The original car was almost entirely white.
The only red part were the fins.
This thing has an enormous red cap that really doesn't look good.
It's too much red.
The GIANT yellow light on it is ridiculous.
Was it too hard to just use a regular police-style light bar?
I guess they didn't pay attention to how people complained there was too much junk on top of the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters 2.
I know I'm being nit-picky here, but it's painful for me to look at.
Then there's the new proton packs.
The new ones look like, again, a bad fan replica of the originals.
Here's a good comparison pic I found.
The new ones are on the left (although I hate you if you couldn't tell).
Why is it 1984's idea of high technology looks better than 2015?
The Ghostbusters are scientists in the most literal fashion!
Why would their proton pack look like scraps?
Above all, their equipment should look new since they built and designed them.
It's literally a nuclear accellerator.
Of everything else, a proton pack should be the best technology they hold.
The new packs look literally thrown together from junk yard scraps.
Finally, they are filming the movie in Boston.
The orginal did most it's filming in actual New York City, where the movie is located.
I know it's common practice to shoot city filmn in just about any city they can afford since, for the most part, you couldn't
tell one from the other without the more notable features, but it just feels lazy combined with the rest that's wrong with the movie.
I'm sure I'll have more to rant about this movie in the coming months, but I am not a happy camper.
