Saw the new Ghostbusters on opening night!! I’ve never seen a movie at the theatre where people clapped about 10 times during the show, when gear or familiar cast members appear. I think it is a great success and a fun movie to watch anytime. My only regret is that it won’t come out on VHS – my copy of Joe Dirt is wearing out and I could use a new movie to watch 8 million times…

In any case, I really loved the movie and am pretty miffed that there’s a faction of people that want to stamp it out. It would be funny if it weren’t so sad (and potentially ruining fun for me). I hope the cast, creators, distributors and studio executives stick it out and persevere for the long haul. I’d like to see a sequel – and hope that the time comes when the mere act of filming a regular old summer comedy remake does not cause an international frenzy. But that can only happen when studios put MORE femake (was a typo but does describe remaking classic films with female leads) on the screens.
Who knows… it may even cause $46 million worth of people’s money to be spent there in one weekend!
