Comic Book Girl 19’s Take on Ghostbusters (2016)

This is my first time watching a Comic Book Girl video, but everything she says about the new Ghostbusters seems reasonable to me.

Also, that hair.


(a) I haven’t seen the new one (but plan to).

(b) I liked the originals but they are not in my top 10 or top 50.

Was not an enormous fan of original Ghostbusters. Not that I didn’t like it, but I was a little young for it. Never watched ‘em more than twice. Ranks up there with, maybe Speed as a movie I enjoyed but did not see more than once or twice. So I don’t have a lot invested in a remake.

To me the trailer for the new one looked… meh. The brouhaha over the movie interests me though.


I’m watching, and very much enjoying, Ghostbusters (1984). After that, the sequel!


Comic Book Girl did a FOLLOW-UP video here, explaining why it’s important to be honest.

Best line: “I need to see people having fun doing this, pushing the boundaries of art… Making me think about things. See the world in different ways. And expanding my consciousness. That’s what I use movies for. It’s not just about escapism. It’s also about refining one’s soul through the process of viewing art.”


Some hot takes from Stephanie Merry, Charlie Nash, Milo Yiannopolis, and Gavin McCinnes
