Hey guys I am writing to you all about the new Ghostbusters movie. Written by Katie Dippold and Paul Fieg. Well, I am here to tell you the previews didn't know their demographic. The movie is good, great laughs good humor, it will be liked by a lot of people, and it pays homage to the originals but really they are a new spin on an old story. Kristin Wig is, (Erin Gilberts) a college professor who gets approached by a museum owner in hopes she can help him since she was on the cover of a book co-written in her early college years on the science of ghosts.
The event gets her in touch with her old friend Melissa Mcarthy (Abby Yates), who she left because she hated being ridiculed or being laughed at for her accomplishments by the scientific community. After reuniting with Abby and introduced to Jillian Holtsmann played by Kate Mckinnon (the engineer of their proton packs and such). It was at this museum where Erin Gilberts gets her first caught on camera meeting. It is her first step to getting recognition for her past. On the other hand, Abby sees it as the first part of her career in the field she loves so much. In posting the video, online. Erin is immediately shunned by her college via the dean played by Charles Dance. While back at Abby's college, they feel they just received enough credit to gain funding, and approach the other schools dean and also get laughed at. With this defeat, the three ladies begin to see and end of their old lives and the beginning of a new one. In search of aiding a city.
After gaining a space of work, they hire Kevin Chris Hemsworth the heart throb of Erin. Though not the brightest of any bunch. He looks good in anything according to Erin; Abby probably wants to put a 10-foot pole between him and her. And then we are introduced to our third Ghostbuster Patty played by Leslie Jones. She joins after her encounter with the second ghost and the evil villain Rowan, played by Neil Casey, a Brainiac, who cares too much about recognition and people being in their proper place that he just went nuts and decided the world could use a quick revamp. Through their obstacles within town and trails of newly made equipment by Holts, these four women take on Rowan and his desire to destroy New York. With homages to the older ghostbuster actors, as they show up, in new roles, repeating lines from the last movies. This movie is a story all on its own. With no real connection to the past. Though unlike shown via the previews I think they did it with class and humor that would make the old actors proud.
But hey if they didn't like it would they act in it? Or would they put money into it? Dan Aykroyd: Exec Produced it, Ali Bell exec produced, she exec produced Hitchcock, Plus the Writers produced it. Joe Medjuck was a producer of the other Ghostbuster movies and shows. (After its release Ill add the rest of the story so as not to ruin anything for my readers)
So I haven't seen to many reviews for watching a movie in 2d or 3d or even if it is a good bet to watch it in regular of Imax. Well, I am here to tell you I thoroughly enjoyed the 3d version I watched via the Active style 3d, it means the glasses where connected to the screen and then it started a progressive flicker, allowing a greater saturation of my image. I recommend seeing this on an Imax screen if you can and if you can handle 3d see it, try looking for theaters that have Dolby style if you can't find Active style glasses. If you can't find either of those next would be circular polarized and then last linear polarized. Just my opinion on that. Circular allows for you to move your head without causing blurry images thought they are a dimmer image. While linear with a brighter picture they aren't too forgiving when you tilt your head. So to check grab two glasses and put the left lens of on glasses over the right lens of the other glasses and rotate it. Linear you could only rotate one way. While circular you won't need to rotate.
Verdict: I give it a 7.5 out of 10.
