I’d seen several “WTF is this?” comments on Facebook before I’d even had the chance to watch the trailer. It wasn’t popular. My expectations had been taken to rock bottom before I’d even hit play.
I’m not sure now. It’s different. It’s not the old Ghostbusters. It can’t meet nostalgia in the way that nothing ever manages to beat nostalgia… but is it that bad? I don’t think I laughed. Slime jokes are old.
We’ve Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones as the team. There’s Chris Hemsworth too.
