A year ago, I predicted “Ghostbusters” would suck — and I was right

Gavin McInnesArchive

Right here at the Rebel, just over one year ago, I predicted the new "Ghostbusters" movie would be horrible, and explained why. Now the movie is out and I was right.


The fact is: Women are afraid of ghosts, and they don't "kick ass." The whole premise is flawed.

This is especially obvious when the black female character sees a ghost. I'm sorry, but I've seen black women see street magic and go berserk, never mind a ghost.

Political correctness and quests for "diversity" ruin everything, and not just movies. I'll tell you about someone I know who got rich just by noticing that...

Mike Krchnak,

You are an idiot. Bill Maher isn’t financing Vice and Vice is actually very popular regardless of political affiliation They do amazing work that has nothing to do with left or right.

Maybe you should know what you are talking about first.

I totally agree with Gavin, this was not a bad ass movie with women, it was just a bad movie with women. It should have been named “Ballbusters” as it was more gross than funny. But much of the time what is sick and disgusting is what passes for humour these days. This movie cannot be in any way compared to the original, which had its moments but was in itself not a knockdown comedy, just different at the time. Keep in mind that when the original came out Bill Murray was still riding the Stripes wave of success. This movie is a group of women rejects trying out for Macho and failing miserably, and yes this is no doubt the creation of some male writers that thought this was a funny concept. I’m guessing the circle of those that found this truly funny, is a circle of small circumference. This movie may make some money, that certainly doesn’t mean it’s good or funny, just lucky to have some McCarthy fans. Some of the worst movies ever made were very successful at the box office, a few of them are favorites of mine. But if watching some bland unfunny, out of shape, menopause inflicted, older women trying to act like bad ass poltergeist hunters is what you find entertaining then go see “Goofhunters” at your local theatre.
Also at the Rebel I have found the reporting to be very accurate. And look how the Rebel started just over a year ago in Ezra’s living room. Vice may be currently on a little larger scale operation wise, but keep in mind they are very mainstream media. When Shane Smith interviewed Trudeau I thought he was going to pass out from hero worship after meeting our boy Emperor. And also some of the coverage they have presented on the show was not all that accurate. Some subject matter, instead of being in the category of reporting the facts, it fell more under the opinion category. The programme is associated with Bill Mahr, who has a bad habit of trying to make his opinions seem factual. The Rebel may be smaller right now. But when everyone comes to the realization, that if you want to hear the truth, tune to the Rebel, this news outlet will continue to grow. Anyway, if a person doesn’t like the Rebel, why would they tune in and take time to make commentary.

Mikey Mann- Vice media is for IQs equivalent to a radish, I can understand how a whispering carrot like yourself would frequent a media outlet that targets the vegetable kingdom. BTW it’s cable outlet is crashing in ratings.

And Rebel only becomes a slum when you pollute it with your vegetative maundering .

No, you said it would bomb. It hasn’t even opened up internationally where it will make most of it’s money and it isn’t a bomb first week in North America. Sony is already planning a sequel, so you are actually wrong.

By the way, how does it feel that Vice is 100 times more successful now – after dumping your fucking ass. I bet it sucks having to slum it on The Rebel, while Vice is a major media source worldwide.

The misandry messaging is obvious and it only comes off like some boring preachy telefilm Canada subsudized flop.
