I can't help but wonder how much of their stores are doing that for real though. Even if it was a huge error, many of the stores might just continue anyways.

Here's an update on the dance number from what I've heard/read. The actual number won't be in the movie per se, but you will see the before and after parts so it will have some influence on the movie.

People look at me weird because I'm not offended by the Ghostbusters reboot. I...I guess I'm not as emotionally invested in Ghostbusters as most people? I don't know, I feel like my attention is better spent obsessing over something that isn't Ghostbusters. It just isn't that important.

The percentage it's at right now is is pretty low in my opinion, and the pattern I've noticed on Rotten Tomatoes is that generally get worse as more reviews come in. However, even the top critics are making this thing political, and so I have a feeling the lesser critics, the ones who have something to loose or gain by making their review political, might give it more praise and thus messing with the results.

I have no doubt it'll be successful at the box office, and that's a shame in my opinion, but I was really hoping that most critics would review it honestly (at this point I can't say I'm on the 'I hope this is good, no one wants to hope for a bad movie!' because the marketing and claims of sexism infuriate me and I really hope this does bad at least critically), and from what I've read these aren't honesty reviews but delusions and pandering. This might actually stay at around 60%, but I can't see it going higher than 70.

I think some review outlets might be scared. I mean, if a fan offers a genuine complaint they are immediately labeled immature and sexist by the studio and a lot of other publications. James Rolfe was attacked for saying he didn't want to see it and there was nothing bad about what he said. So I think a lot of sites are nervous to say it's flat out terrible (assuming it is).

So the so-called "film" is sitting at 74% on Rotten Rotten Tomatoes out of 43 reviews as of the time of this writing.

Still don't care, the onslaught of horrible press from Sony, the directors, the cast, nightmare inducing production history and braindead marketing turned me off this sorry excuse a long time ago. I don't care of people (outside of this good site of course) label me as sexist/racist I will know that I'm not what they think I am. I know that I am tired of feeling like I'm being lied to, judged, insulted and reduced to being a corporate slave because of blackmail and insidious mind games. If this persists, and most of the "positive" reviews are merely political statements of allegiance to the movie's agenda, then forget it. I'll stick to my Warcraft, my Legend of Tarzan, even Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition, every movie that has been labelled divisive or subpar that I happen to enjoy on a certain level - but I will never endorse this.

As of this writing, it has a 74% on Rotten Tomatoes.

I meant as the final result, that's what I meant by 'stay at'. I'll be surprised, and deeply concerned, if its above 70 after the release.

If it actually is good, I'll see it eventually but I'm certainly not going to pay to see it.

Well thanks to some free passes, didn't pay and have tickets to the 7 p.m. screening on Thursday. The reviews are so damn all over the place, and with what Sickle posted I'm not exactly excited if they really do tell me that being a man is bad. But, lets see how it goes. Btw, Bloody Disgusting, posted their review, and its, average.

That's surprising considering they make sure to let you know something is worth seeing.

I'm sort of 50/50 on BD, I like the site for the most part, but I didn't agree with a couple of their reviews in the past (Mockingbird, and Mine Games, I think were two films they reviewed highly and I watched them and they were just not good.), but usually I trust their opinions. It's a weird review though, because they praise it as a mile stone film in terms of heroes little girls can look up to, but pretty much slam the film and say its bad and stuff. It doesn't make me think they got paid off or anything, but it does make me wonder if like a lot fo the critics, they've become so afraid of the SJW backlash they had to post something positive in their review. Could be it really is just an average movie and not as bad as everyone has predicted, but I'll still reserve that judgement for my own opinion.

The dance scene at the end of the credits is 100% true, but no one else I've talked to mentions this thing about Hemsworth. I'm thinking the guy in Twitter post is just trying mess with people more, but I wouldn't necessarily put it out of the realm of possibility either.

EDIT: 77% on Rotten Tomatoes by all critics, but top critics its only 50%. Feels like something going on there.

I'm hopeful that the reviews are just anomalies since the real critics usually come out between Wed, Thur, and Fri with a few on Sat. When you hear from those, you'll know the truth. Even if this does start out well, I fully expect this movie to implode big time via Batman vs. Superman and Sony's first GINO movie, Godzilla 1998.

And Amy Pascal has now gone insane.

Vanity Fair didn't like the movie.

Richard Roeper just destroyed this movie. He didn't hold back ,he tore it apart!

I'm not going to watch this movie, not bc I'm sexist but I've heard it's really bad and plus I've never found Ghostbursters movies funny or that appealing to me. My opinion of course.

What makes me feel bad is that the studio is trying to combat sexism with more sexism as said the final scene has someone appologizing for being a man. That's over the top. Way too much. I know some of the critics are talking trash about the movie bc it's all women cast, but most of the critics/reviews I see are about how the movie is bad and they have a reason.

Trying to label all men as rapists/sexist isn't a good way to combat prejudice against women. That will just fire back.

I think the original two are good movies, but I've never been much of a fan. I was actually really optimistic of the movie and even though I thought it looked bad, it didn't seem as bad as some made it out to be and was okay with the female cast (and most of us haters are, from what I've seen). But then the creators were calling me sexist for thinking it wasn't good, and that was way too far and that's when I actively started hating it. Even if the movie isn't that bad, I'll still hate it. I doubt I'll never not hate this.

More negitive reviews on Ghostbusters 2016.

This one says that Kate McKinnon is the only good new Ghostbuster. I actually agree with that since she does have a great attitude from what I've seen in the trailers.

Update: Her character is sexually ambiguous. I don't care about that part. If they say her character is good enough to be the legitimately good new Ghostbuster like many say, then I can handle that.

China has banned Ghostbusters because of their no-ghost rule. It's unfortunate that China has that kind of stuff, but on the bright side (in my opinion), it means that this will make barely anything in its international release. That mixed with the huge amount of money they must have had spent on marketing and the negative word of mouth the movie has received, this may not actually be the box office success I was beginning to think it would be.

However, it's still in a good position because the only movie right now that could possibly compete is Secret Life of Pets, and the next biggest movie doesn't come out until the 22nd, if I remember correctly. There is plenty of room for it to make money.

Kate seems to be a huge point of debate in this film. From a lot of the reviews I read that mention her, it seems like she's a "love it or hate it" character.

I'm interested to see how we all feel about her.
