So today the trailer was released for the new reboot movie of Ghostbusters.
When I first seen the news about the movie being made and how it was going to be a remake/reboot I was going to to hate it. Then I found out that Melissa McCarthy was going to be in the film and to me that was instantly a sign that I would never watch it in theaters.
But I still decided to watch the trailer thinking maybe I could be proven wrong and would enjoy watching it. after watching the trailer my original thoughts it would be a disaster and end up harming the originals are still true.
For some reason Hollywood decides to remake movies and most of those ending being horrible movies. Just a few examples
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
Evil Dead (2013)
Fantastic Four (2015)
Friday the 13th (2009)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)
So far the only remake I can think of that I loved was The Thing (2011). It was not a perfect film in any way but it did so much right compared to the other trash that keeps getting done.
I bet we will see a reboot of the reboot in a few years.
