Instead of a team of ghost-catching funny men fighting against paranormal activity in New York City, this summer’s remake of the 1984 original features a team of ghost-catching funny women.
As soon as the reboot appeared, there was intense backlash on social media -- mainly from men. Early reviews showed the average rating from men was a 3.5 out of 10 while women graded it a 7.5 out of 10, according to usatoday.com.
The movie’s trailer had started an instant outburst by males, revealing the double standard of female-led movies.
In fact, both films share the same concepts. If the first one received better reviews, many women are now concluding that it can only be due to gender bias.
While the new “Ghostbusters” is not a classic piece of art by any means, neither was the first.
A mediocre movie is a mediocre movie whether it is led by women or men.
