The New ‘Ghostbusters’ Didn’t Ruin ‘Ghostbusters,’ The Original ‘Ghost Busters’ Did

When angry fans made the trailer for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters the most disliked movie trailer in the history of YouTube (now at 880,000 thumbs down and counting as of this writing), their accompanying comments repeated the same complaints. The digital effects looked bad. The broad physical comedy didn’t work. The cast was gallingly female. (Recent example, all spelling errors theirs: “why woman ? im not sexist but i think its not good to use them.”) Over and over, they returned to one singular conclusion: The new Ghostbusters would not only ruin fans’ collective childhoods, it would ruin the original Ghostbusters.

Bruce Willis to Star in Eli Roth’s ‘Death Wish’ Remake

It’s been a frustrating couple of years for Bruce Willis fans. After a long and very successful career at the very top of the Hollywood Star Machine, Willis’ has slowly worked his way down into B-level fare. And B-level might be generous; a lot of his movies these days get a cursory release and then go straight to VOD, if they show up in theaters at all. Most of these movies have titles so generic they could be attached to any of these films and no one would notice. Was The Prince the one about the dystopian sci-fi with sex robots? Or was that Extraction? Or Precious Cargo? Marauders? Oh wait, it was Vice. According to IMDb, Willis is currently making a movie that really sums up this whole period of his career: The Bombing.
