Dan Aykroyd Praises New ‘Ghostbusters’ and the Internet’s Reaction Is Predictably Ugly

It’s become impossible to talk about Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters without acknowledging the unsavory reactions from fans of the original who have declared the reboot cinema non grata (to say the least). It’s also been suggested that perhaps some words of support from the original cast members might help soothe the aggressive fanbase, that if their so-called childhood heroes give Feig’s film the stamp of approval (as if their willingness to cameo in the film wasn’t endorsement enough), maybe the anti-reboot fan contingent would settle down and come to accept a crew of female Ghostbusters. That’s not the case, as OG Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd shared his positive thoughts on Feig’s reboot, inspiring a slew of predictably angry reactions.

Sam Mendes Is Done With the James Bond Franchise, Yes, Really

Yes, you’ve heard it before, but Sam Mendes really means it this time. Even though he said Skyfall was his last James Bond film, and even though he directed Spectre anyway, and even though he already said Spectre would be his final outing with 007, this time he means business. Mendes is officially done with James Bond, and it’s hard not to believe that he’s for-really-real about it considering the rampant rumors (with supporting evidence) of Daniel Craig’s exit.

Texas is the Only State That Can’t Spell This Word

It's a common word, but there is one tricky letter combination that trips us up regularly enough that we have to ask Google for help.

Oh, and what's with Oklahoma?  Along with South Dakota and Wisconsin, they have trouble spelling the word "gray."  They must have seen 50 Shades of Grey too many times.

Convince This Naysayer That Camping is a Good Thing

I just don't get camping.  I don't understand why anyone in their right mind would choose to sleep outside with bugs and critters, when there's a perfectly good bed and a hot shower at home.

‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Review: There’s No Wonder Here

Much of Tim Burton’s 2010 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ was a forgettable, unsavory mess, but it did have some redeemable qualities. The filmmaker’s eye-popping visuals and imaginative production design were the best aspects of the largely unbearable Disney movie. But you’ll find none of that in the new sequel.
