Yes, I watched it.
Yes, I still consider the whole idea of this reboot essentially sacrilege.
However, I do think I will watch the film, once it hits one of the premium cable networks I already pay for now. The trailer shows that there is at least a little slapstick violence involved, including Melissa McCarthy getting slapped repeatedly. That alone caters to my sadistic side, especially since I don’t really like her.
So, I’m not writing off the new iteration of Ghostbusters, however I probably do have questionable reasons for viewing it. But, that is how they made this film, and I doubt the filmmakers are going to complain about getting viewers simply because of a desire to see these women torture each other – and get covered in slime.
What do you think?
