Ghostbusters (2016) 
Not Giving This One a Call
1.5/4 stars

'Ghostbusters' is the latest in a long line of unnecessary remakes that only exist for commercialization through brand recognition. Let's not kid ourselves over the real intentions of this property. Nothing about this film warrants much investment. It's essentially a beat-for-beat plot retread of the original 'Ghostbusters', but with entirely different characters and jokes. The humor is like day and night when comparing the two films. I think I laughed out loud maybe twice? Rest of the time I was left shaking my head at the uninspired gags and flat one-liners. References to the 1984 'Ghostbusters' felt needlessly wedged in. Cameos from the original cast members were pointless. Any time the movie was trying to add something new to the mythos things started to become entertaining. The story and characters just aren't strong enough to hold on their own. Ideas that add a fresh spin only exist in very small doses. The one thing keeping this movie together are the four main leads. These ladies are the only shining light of this blatant cash grab. While only one of their characters felt real (that of Leslie Jones), they were all at least trying and seemingly having fun in the process. I would watch this talented group in another (better) film in a heartbeat. Also worth mention is the strong comedic turn from Hemsworth. Though, his character was probably the worst in the film he did make the best of it - giving me the only laughs I had in the process. Severe mediocrity weighs heavy on this corporate franchise bloodletting.
