Still Crying: ‘Ghostbusters’ Director Suggests Racist, Sexist Trump Fans Killed His Movie

Yeah, the disinterested movie goers on the left, center and right, killed the movie. Not the bad directing, acting, and script.

Hollywood in Toto: The 2016 “Ghostbusters” reboot set an ugly pop culture template.

Suddenly, to merely dislike a female-centric film made one a sexist if not an outright bully. That media narrative took hold during the rollout for the anticipated film, the biggest gender swap project to date.

Since then, similar themes have greeted the release of “Birds of Prey,” “Charlie’s Angels” and “Captain Marvel.”

Sony, the studio behind “Ghostbusters,” endorsed that narrative. A Sony top executive had a simple, profane message for the film’s early naysayers:

Everybody says I’m making the female Ghostbusters, but I say, ‘No, we’re making the funny Ghostbusters.’ Yes, it happens to be four women. It’s original. You get pissing and moaning on the Internet — sexist comments – but, you know, [bleep]’em.

The stars embraced that victimhood status, too, a curious pose for a multi-million dollar project with a major studio behind it. The film even inserted a scene where the ghostbusters mock online trolls. more

  1. Remaking a classic well-loved movie which already had decent special effects and a first rate cast with a bunch of fugly lesbians spewing woke “humor” who aren’t even funny was a stupid idea. That’s why the film was a loser.

  2. Is he suggesting we have to love it because he was PC?
    Betcha it’s a pink thong he’s got bunched up.

  3. Didn’t even know there was a sequel out. Guess that makes me an uninformed sexist. If you also want to throw a bully in that accusation, go ahead, what the hell, make yourself feel good about yourself. You’re the fool, I just am $10 richer for not wasting my money.

  4. Sequels generally suck. Get over it. Then they tried to chic-a-fy it. That’s like telling an ethnic joke and taking out the ethnicity part.

    The original Ghostbusters was the funny one.
    Your movie is NOT original be definition
    Like the imperfect marksman you are, you keep missing the target

  6. Listen Idiot,

    Very similar plot, gags, concepts as the original but showing men to be incompetent and lecturing the audience, why would I pay to see it.

    I saw a movie spoof called Star Whores, It had a better plot.

    You could have made Gash Busters and at least turned a profit Asshole.

    Apologies to people on this site, but if I have to listen to, and watch whores, I would rather they be honest whores.

    Today HAS NOT been a good day at work!

  7. Usually, when directors and producers discover their movies suck and will never make a lot of money, they ignore the film and act like they’re busy doing other stuff so they don’t have to talk about it.
    But not today’s precious babies. They have to pay or beg for ad time to let you know their feelings were hurt. LOL.

  8. I’m sure there are many critics who could write a book analyzing the movie’s shortcomings. But why bother when a single word sums it up:

    “Junk.”

  9. Watching him blame President Trump made that interview the feel-good video of the year. There should be an award for that.

  10. What’s next a remake of Band of Brothers but it’s called Band of Bitches as an all cast female airborne troops gallop through Europe to defeat the Germans. It would only need a dozen women as we see one tiny 100 pound female beats up dozens of 200 lb men in movies all the time.

  11. You don’t suppose it had anything to do with the masses being overloaded with the media’s weak-kneed, Chinese sponsored, woke bullshit would you?

  12. I went to high school with Paul and he’s still a friend. He admitted to the press that screenings were poor and producers kept requesting more fx and changes. Nothing but politics as usual. Studio politics. He’ll never be allowed back on the Sony lot and it’s sad how he’s been brainwashed. But he knows the truth…the film sucked because he lost control. Haters are good for publicity so he’s just wallowing in narcissistic Neverland.

  13. you drop a steaming turd at people’s feet, & instead of them walking around it in disgust, you demand they step in it & actually like it

    … & the icing on the cake is you blame PDT because they do not!

    good grief! TDS at it’s best
