Criticize the all female Ghostbuster remake, and leftists lose their minds attacking you over it because obviously you are a sexist who hates women. And did we call you a sexist? Because you are one!
You know who disagrees? Ivan Reitman. Yes, the director of the original movie that everyone loves.
For his part, Reitman thinks the backlash has more to do with nostalgia than anger over a perception that political correctness influenced creative choices.
“I think there’s way too much talk about gender [when it comes to this film],” he said. “I think that many of the people who were complaining were actually lovers of the [original] movie, not haters of women.”
Prediction: The feminists will roast him alive then devour his man-flesh after chanting to the moon during their menstrual cycles.
Sorry for the visual there. But you know it’s true.
Reitman also isn’t a fan of the way the reboot’s critics have been lumped together by the movie’s defenders under the catch-all banner of “internet trolls.”
“Everybody is my audience. Whether they like what I did or didn’t like it,” he said. “I’ve certainly had my experience with things that did not work. This movie works, [but] no one’s really seen it.”
Look, leftists and SJWs have shown you can cherry pick anonymous tweets and YouTube comments then craft narratives that support all sorts of ridiculous opinions. I get that. But people defending the girl Ghostbusters act like no one has ever complained about a movie remake ever. People complain about EVERY movie remake, even when those remakes are just a bunch of cisgendered white men. Welcome to the internet.
If anything, the fact that the producers and stars of the movie have gone all in on criticizing “the haters” makes me think they already know the movie sucks, and are just setting up this feminist narrative so people will be afraid to say it sucks because they’ll be attacked for it. Critics will be smeared in menstrual blood.
I know. Said it again. You know it’s true. Remember the free-bleeding marathon runner? That’s why I made the reference. Sorry if you’re running to the toilet to puke.
Sometimes a bad movie is just a bad movie. Deal with it.
