With a film like Ghostbusters, the pitfalls may be even more hazardous. Thirty years has elapsed since the wildly popular hit swept box office charts and won lifetime adherents. Times and even humor have changed.
Who woulda thunk that a remake of the 1986 beloved hit Ghostbusters recast with women would work? Kudos to director Paul Feig who keeps all the elements moving at a lively, harmonious and hilarious pace.
Ben Affleck or Henry Cavill? Chris Evans or Chris Hemsworth? For this week's Monday Mouth-Off, Mike Ciriaco teams up with Go-Go Boy Interrupted star Jimmy Fowlie to play a couple rounds of F**k, Marry, Kill with the summer blockbuster hunks.
How you waste a top-tier cast in a total nothing of a movie like this I'll never understand. Pity poor Jessica Chastain, who I've adored in just about everything she's done and who looks like she was forced into this project against her will.
This week Brian and I discuss a whole host of new and upcoming release, including Disney's box office behemoth The Jungle Book, the Kevin Costner action thriller Criminal, and Universal's sequel/spin-off The Huntsman: Winter's War.
