Premise: Also known as Lady Ghostbusters, #NotMyGhostbusters, and The Movie That Shattered a Million Fragile Childhoods; this was a remake of a movie a lot of people like from a long time ago. Kind of like Total Recall (2012), King Kong (2005), Conan the Barbarian (2011), National Lampoon’s Vacation (2015), Arthur (2011), and so on. What was the difference between this Ghostbusters remake and all of these other ones that’s causing such a backlash? I don’t know? Probably because there’s chicks in it, BRAH. Bill Murray wasn’t a girl, didn’t you know that? Why do things have to be different all the time? Why do we live in a time when we are able to drink Ecto Cooler, but I still have to listen to women tell jokes? This is such a cruel planet. Did you know there’s a lady Slimer in this? Doesn’t that make you want to write a 4,000 word think piece on the disintegration of Hollywood originality? No? Well, I guess you’re a stronger person than I am.
Well, hello there! Seems like it’s been a while! How are you? Have you lost weight? Is that a new hat?
I like to give back to our readers here, so I thought I’d give you the gift of 20 mini reviews of all of the movies from 2015 that I’ve seen over the last few months, but haven’t reviewed yet. I got majorly backlogged with movies to write reviews for, and if I don’t do it now all at once, I know I’ll never do it.
So if your Uncle Tony starts to get a little *too* opinionated on Muslim refugees while you’re waiting for Christmas dinner; pull out this list, zone out, and ignore the (now) screaming match that he and your dad have surely gotten into while your grandma begs them to “Stop it, boys! It’s Christmaaaaaaas!“.
Premise: I saw this movie two weeks ago and haven’t had much time to write anything about it until now, but that has kind of confined my memory to basically remember it being a rehash of the first Terminator‘s plot, but then with more robots and stuff later on. Also, cell phone app updates are bad and could lead to a nuclear wasteland where the survivors are being imprisoned by tyrannical robot overlords. Remember that the next time you’re asked to update Angry Birds Seasons.
I’ve sort of taken a hiatus from writing for a few weeks because I’ve been feeling extremely under the weather lately, and haven’t had motivation to write much of anything, but I’m feeling a little better today, and I’ve seen a few new movies, so maybe it will feel good to do a few quick write ups! Here goes!
To answer your first immediate question: yes, I do own a glow in the dark velociraptor t-shirt. And yes, it will probably sway my judgement in regards to this movie.
Premise: The Ninja Turtles are back! And so are weird expectations and nostalgic disappointment; two of the worst villains the Turtles have ever had to fight. They don’t even wear costumes.
