No, Donny, These Men Are Liars
Maybe it’s from not drinking or not talking to other human beings in person, but I’m reaching my limit with all this bullshit Hollywood shilling.
When was the last time one of these people told the truth about anything?
Not this time
The child star of Stranger Things, Finn Wolfhard — has there ever been a worse waste of a cool name? — has been sent forth to reassure fans that Ghostbusters: Afterlife is gonna be OK.
In a recent interview with NME, Finn said:
“Older Ghostbusters fans will find it’s a really, really faithful approach to the series, while young people, if not everyone, will find that, first and foremost, Ghostbusters is about family and the relationships that these people have made.”
That’s odd, I don’t recall Ghostbusters having much to do with “family.”
I thought it was about a few guys trying to run a small business who happen to get called upon to save the world a couple of times.
Is having kids using proton packs “really faithful” to the original?
Maybe they are talking about the 2016 Ghostbusters?
“It’s also really funny, so I’m really excited for people to see it.”
Nope, definitely not talking about that movie.
Still, he’s an actor. He has to say good things about the movie he’s in. It’s not like he’s in charge of the script or the tone of the movie.
Hell, he might even believe what he says.
I know the trailer had some weird stuff in it like how people would have forgotten that the Ghostbusters saved the world during The New York Rift, but maybe that is nitpicking.
I’ll Give It A Shot, I Guess
Ivan Reitman’s son is a pretty competent director and I’m sure he will try to stay true to his father’s original vision —
What’s that you say? Jason Reitman said what?
“I thought I was going to be this indie dude who made Sundance movies and then this character came to me. She was a 12 year old girl. I didn’t know who she was or why she popped into my head, but I saw her with a proton pack in her hand.”
Do I really need to get into the lies Paul Feig, McCarthy and others told about that abomination from a few years ago?
Yeah, no. They tried Ghostbusters: Women now they are going to try Ghostbusters: Kids. And that’s being charitable.
You could say that they are really doing Ghostbusters: Girls.
Fuck these people. And fuck this movie. It ended at the Statue Of Liberty.
Leave our shit alone. You’ve been warned.
