A Wanker’s Literary Reaction: Ghostbusters Trailer

by thethreepennyguignol

So, after a the disappointment of Deadpool in terms of it’s female characters, I’m looking forward to anything that gives us a bit more vag action in the cinema in the upcoming blockbuster season. And this year’s Ghostbusters reboot promises just that, so let’s take a look at the trailer!

So, after a the disappointment of Deadpool in terms of it’s female characters, I’m looking forward to anything that promises a bit more vag action in the cinema. And this year’s Ghostbusters reboot promises just that, so let’s take a look at the trailer!

0:10: Right, okay, even just the reminder of the unbelievably brilliant Ghostbusters theme song is enough to have me pre-booking tickets.

0:14: DID YOU KNOW that this theme song didn’t get an Oscar? An international outrage and definitive proof, if anyone needed it, that the film industry hates anything even tangentially related to horror.

0:25: WOMEN GHOSTBUSTERS WELL ALLOW ME TO TAKE OFF MY FEDORA IN DISGUST AT THIS DISGRACEFUL DISPLAY OF MISANDR-

0:28: Sorry, I was possessed by the soul of a shitlord for a moment, carry on.

0:32: Man, I fucking love Kristen Wiig. I also crave this skirt-suit she’s wearing.

0:42: Pleased to note that this ghost would have given me the appropriate amount of heebie-jeebies when I was a kid, as tradition dictates.

0:52: Is this…a dubstep remix of the Ghostbusters theme song?

0:54: I love how old-school and goofy all the equipment looks-it would feel dirty and wrong for Ghostbusters to have anything slick or modern or even remotely difficult to fumble up a last-minute Halloween costume out of in it’s arsenal.

1:00: Shit, I already have an enormous crush on Kate McKinnon based only on that wink/those goggles.

1:12: I’ve seen a lot of people declaring this movie’s plot (based on this trailer) the same as the original, which…well, no, not really. Move along, move along.

1:27: If there’s anyone on Earth who doesn’t secretly want to own one of those uniforms, they’re lying to themselves and are not to be trusted.

1:32: Ha, Kristin Wiig and Melissa McCarthy are just a pleasure together.

1:37: This is definetly a dubstep remix of the Ghostbusters theme song. I don’t know how to feel about this. Actually, I do, and I hate it.

1:45: This plot reminds me vaguely of Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, which is a GREAT thing.

1:52: Whatever that thing that just walked by was, I’m pretty sure it’s my fashion inspiration for the next six months.

1:57: Oh hai Chris Hemsworth! I like you better with Thor-hair.

2:12: I’ve never seen Leslie Jones in anything else that I can think of, but I like the idea of someone on the team because of their practical knowledge, not their ghosty stuff.

2:22: I do enjoy the fact she has a necklace with her name on it also. The blindingly obvious Exorcist joke? Not so much.

2:28: Overall, a tickets-on-a-weekday-night n a scale of prebook to boycott.
