That's on the filmmakers for calling it friggin' Ghostbusters
. They set that standard themselves.
It's ridiculous that it's always movies that were perfectly fine the first time around that get remade and rebooted. Robocop
, for crying out loud! Who do these people think they're kidding, like they're going to improve on DeMille or Hitchcock? Except they obviously don't even try; it's just a cash grab built on branding and name recognition, and it's downright insulting. What I don't understand is why people keep supporting this crap when they know
that, for example, the "Poltergeist
" in the theater in 2015 won't hold a candle to the Poltergeist
they love from 1982. If you like the original movie so much, nothing's stopping you from just watching it again instead of paying more to see a worse version. And if you want to see something big in the theater, you could give your time and money to a movie that actually deserves them.
