So after seeing much of the coverage and dabbling in ice skating for the first time -- which was both as uncoordinated and frightening as I'd anticipated -- I had the opportunity to check out the Ghostbusters reboot.
Let's talk about it. I Have Opinions.
Perhaps one of the best parts of the movie came at the end when my partner tweeted how much she liked it. Which, because of course, immediately resulted in strangers telling her she was wrong and how much Sony paid her under the table.
But I had a lot of fun. That said, the editing was bizarrely bad. I understand now when people say Paul Feig makes "ugly" movies. It's most obvious in the second half, where the cuts are so brisk that you're not given time to enjoy or absorb the jokes.
Some of the jokes are still great though -- especially in the opening when the first footage of the new Ghostbusters hits YouTube.
Seen the film? What did you think?
