Before this sentence has even finished, you’ve already begun to judge and dislike this topic. Well, sadly for you, it’s not going to disappear any time soon. In fact, as the release date for the new Ghostbusters film reaches near, the more you’re going to hear about it, unless you find a way to live without social media. But if you’re one of those who clicked dislike before even reading or watching any of the videos, then maybe give these vignettes a shot. If anything, you can always dislike them. They’re barely a minute long, includes some insight from the actors, and contain some cool looking scenes which haven’t been seen yet.
First of all, here are those four terrible videos that many of you probably disliked for the sake of disliking them and didn’t even watch.
There, those weren’t bad, were they? Admittedly, there’s a certain writer who isn’t a fan of Melissa McCarthy, but three out of four ain’t bad. If anything good comes out of these, it’s that Kate McKinnon is probably going to steal the show in this movie. If you think about it, it’s really easy to compare almost all the characters to their male counterparts. McCarthy is obviously the Ray Stantz of the group. Kristen Wiig is your Egon Spengler. And Leslie Jones is your Winston Zeddemore turned up to an eleven. As for McKinnon, she is no Peter Venkman, but that’s what’s great about her. Out of all the main characters, she does the best job of separating herself from the male comparison and creating a whole new character to like.
While it’s not being said that these videos make the movie look a lot better, there are still some issues. There delivery of some of the jokes don’t work. And, unfortunately, there are scenes which have been shown over and over again, that by the time you see the film (if any of you go), it’s going to feel stale and boring. Still, the new action scenes give some light that maybe this movie won’t be as terrible as many people are saying it will be.
