2016 Ghostbusters Tomatometer: I am SHOCKED!

Recommended Posts

benjamine6    10

I expected, and all of my friends expected, and most of the commenters on the trailer videos expected that the new Ghostbusters REBOOT would get a big fat zero or only a tiny slimmer higher on Rotten tomatoes' Tomatometer.

 

BUT...

I recieved a reply to go check the tomatometer, And to my shock, early ratings put it at a 74/100! Holy crap! So.. I assume it might actually be good...? I don't know. I can't even believe what i'm saying.

It'll start tanking as it gets more reviews from watchers, as people that aren't shilling start speaking up.

I don't think that RottenTomatoes has been accurate with their meter in a while.

And there's some suggestion Sony have been astroturfing the movie pretty hard

boxofficemojo has it estimated at $17.2 million for Friday, they tend to estimate things higher than they are, I bet it's lower.  We'll see how it finishes the weekend, they're going with $46million but I don't know.

If it's as empty as those tweets show, I don't see how it makes the projected $46million weekend.

It only  has a 55% viewer rating on rottentomatoes.com. It used to have 77% rating for reviewers, now it is down to 73%. Imdb score is only 4.9/10 rating, if you remove the 1 star and 10 star ratings it has 5.9/10 which is not good. The movie cost $144m to make and they have apparently spent over $100m on promotional costs. If it does make a profit it likely won't be much.

I'm saddened by all of this, not if this movie sucks or is great, but it means we will never get a proper sequel.

 

Anyhow, I think Sony used the few spiteful reviews on Youtube and SJW rants to their advantage to get people talking about a mediocre movie for far longer than it warranted. In two months hardly anyone will remember this movie, and much less  will even care if it was good or not.

actually because it was so bad, they might make a proper follow up to gb2 but with the original surviving cast, i can see that happening more than a sequel to this mess.

Source for that, because I can find nothing of the sort and a direct sequel to GB2 was written off literally decades ago?

Just going by all the complaints of the new movie, Aykroyd's comments and rumors, i did read on some site (can't remember which, was some movie news site) a short while back that ideas were being thrown around about a proper sequel....could be something, could be nothing.

I think the movie would have worked a LOT better if it had been a generational handover thing, with the surviving original cast looking for a new team to restart the business.  I don't think anyone would have objected to an all female team then.

I don't think that would have made any difference. The issue for me was the tone. I didn't think it was a bad film by any means but it wasn't in keeping with the previous installments. Kate McKinnon was tedious; Kristen Wiig was too dopey; Leslie Jones played a tired, exaggerated racial stereotype; Chris Hemsworth's role was completely over-the-top and exaggerated, though he had a few decent moments. In terms of a female cast I think people like Amy Schumer, Tina Fey, Amy Poeler, Elizabeth Banks, Jennifer Aniston, Oprah Winfrey, Ellie Kemper and Kristen Schaal could have worked if the tone was more in keeping with the original.
