Sheeesssh. These Liberals are goofy, ya know?

Zitat
Comedy filmmaker Judd Apatow says the people who are upset with the upcoming “Ghostbusters” remake are the “exact same people” who are supporting Donald Trump for president.

“I would assume there’s a very large crossover of people who are doubtful Ghostbusters will be great and people excited about the Donald Trump candidacy. I would assume they are the exact same people,” Apatow said recently in an interview with Uproxx.

This particular article did not say what scientific study Apatow did which provided him with the proof of this claim, nor why Trump supporters would be the same as those who criticize his movie. Some, reactionaries obviously, think the reason is he has replaced male leads from the first film with females, and, as everyone knows, all Trump supporters are male chauvinists, even the women. It's sorta like opposing Obama is prima facie evidence you are a racist. That sort of thing.

Right, perhaps if the remake cast was as colorful and funny as the original cast ...





vs 2016 cast....




Do they think we'red STUPID?????
This 2016 cast was "invented" for a purpose other than comedy, to make a statement that nobody wanted to hear.

Thanks, TM, for posting that picture of the original cast. Made me think. Since this time all the ghostbusters will be women, who will fill the Sigourney Weaver role? A pretty boy? Another woman so the film can depict a lesbian relationship? No one? That part of the story being eliminated or altered somehow, which hardly seems possible?

I also wonder who will fill the nerdy accountant role performed so well by Rick Moranis and the amusing secretary Annie Potts. A boy?

Hardly earth shaking, but I am curious as to how those roles are going to be handled.

In their alternative universe humor gets reduced to snark, dumping on the traditional roles and then laughing at the deed.

So yes, they come up short in comparison to traditional humor, way short.
