Ghostbusters is a 1984 American supernatural comedy film, directed and produced by Ivan Reitman and written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. The film stars Bill Murray, Aykroyd, and Ramis as three eccentric parapsychologists in New York City who start a ghost-catching business. Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis co-star as a client and her neighbor. The Ghostbusters business booms after initial skepticism, eventually requiring a fourth Ghostbuster, played by Ernie Hudson; but, when an uptown high-rise apartment building becomes the focal point of spirit activity linked to the ancient god Gozer, it threatens to overwhelm the team and the entire world.

So bad. Ghostbusters is a horror from start to finish, and that's not me saying it's legitimately scary. More like I was horrified by what was transpiring onscreen. How could so many talented, well-meaning artists, who clearly loved and respected the original, produce such a raggedy-looking, thudding unfunny, utterly unnecessary robot? For months, controversy has swirled around the new Ghostbusters movie. The trailer was reportedly the most hated in YouTube history, for what that's worth (or not worth), which led to some pundits saying some of that hate was rooted in sexism. Of course, people were voicing these opinions without having seen the entire movie. Well, I have seen it, and while I believe the concerns about racial stereotypes were overblows. Ghostbusters is one of the worst movies of the year for multiple other reasons, including: Bad acting. Uninspired directing, editing, cinematography and music. The 2016 edition of Ghostbusters is not a sequel or a remake per se. While there are multiple visual and musical nodes to the 1984 classic (to the point of distraction), this is a stand-stone disaster. There's very little chemistry between any combination of the four Ghostbusters, who spend a lot of time strategizing about their next move and then saying "Whoohoo!" when they hit the streets. From multiple visual references to the iconic logo, to a new take on the catchy. To the3 appearance of some very familiar ghosts. Ghostbusters keep s telling us; Yes, we know we're revisiting a classic. Some things are better left alone.
