To whom it may concern re: Ghostbusters (2016)

 The movie was better than I thought it would be but…

Much like the doctor who is not allowed to operate on a family member or the lawyer who knows if he or she represents self then they have a fool for a client and because of my “relationship” with the movie (Been performing it as a one women show for most of my life) I cannot/will not be reviewing the new Ghostbusters movie. 

Instead I well think of it as a sequel. I didn’t like Ghostbusters 2 as much as the original either. I don’t think it was as good because once you know the Ghostbusters can save the city it’s not as surprising or good when they do it again.(The library/historical home ghost didn’t even scare me this time, now I know about special effects)

These are funny women can’t Hollywood come up with something new and better for them? Then again I was watching TCM the other day and the host was introducing a 1950s film that was a shot by shot/scene by scene same as a 1930s film so I guess they have been doing remakes/reboots for decades.
