| They Are Already Making Another Ghostbusters
And it is our fault.

It is my fault.

It is your fault.

This gender switch Ghostbusters was unfunny, gross and mostly forced. The bigger picture is the lack of originality and freshness. Hollywood has normalized the endless remakes and reboots, a world where everything is a franchise, but it should not be. It is about new experiences and not the staleness of the familiar. This one was distinctly angry and put women into a position of adequateness when in fat body suits, but we the audiences need to demand better.
