I'll see it one day I'm sure, I'm just not rushing to pay to see it so if it comes up on Netflix or on the TV I'll watch it with a open mind but I don't expect it to wow me either way
It's actually showing on freeview at the moment. ...at least I did see it one week in the tv paper on Wednesday at 9. Can't seem to see it now!
Well Watson never bothered me in Elementary either. Now Ghostbusters however is a totally different story.
I don't especially like Lucy Liu but don't have an issue with the character and am very glad they have kept the relationship platonic because that would have been an easy route to take but they resisted, for the better.
I haven't seen the new Ghostbusters. I'm not bothered by the cast being women, if I don't like it it'll be because I thought it was rubbish but not because they are female.
I just realized how wrong I sounded. The cast being female is just part of the problem. It just doesn't work for me. Everyone is battling the legacy so hard trying to prove that this was not a mistake (and the cast being female is part of that issue) that they forget they actually have a movie of their own. It could have been way more enjoyable than it was for me.
That wouldn't have helped I'm sure, I guess they knew a lot of people weren't going to be happy and like you said they decided to make a big thing of it to prove they were doing the right thing maybe. They could have done it with a lot less fuss and just concentrated on the story.
But such is Hollywood.
Daresay no matter how good they make a remake, no matter what the original is, there's always going to be a group that disagree with it for a, b and c.
(Hope that doesn't come across wrong or patronising or anything, Wrong Name, wasn't meant to, sorry)
