Ocean's 8 teaser

You got to love a trailer for a trailer.

I know I always do.

I was not among the people who blindly hated the 2016 "Ghostbusters" movie, simply because of what it represented. I found the film more underwhelming, and it's just not a movie I ever feel the need to watch again. The original "Ghostbusters" has some sentimental value to me, so if you they were going to go for it in a remake form, they better not have missed. Unfortunately, they missed overall. It's put a bad taste in my mouth pertaining to taking a classic film and saying "Let's remake it, but with all girls!"

Look, I have never argued against girl power in movies. I understand how important it is. I think we all need more women in lead roles, we need more women's faces in movies they usually don't have much command of. But these all-girl remakes...they feel like SJW lessons for the sake of it. Believe it or not, I imagined that this trailer would have that "Boots are gonna walk all over you" song in the trailer. Sure enough...

I know this is a teaser of a teaser. I will have more to judge once the bigger trailer hits tomorrow. But I am already trying hard to figure out why these "all-female" remakes are really needed.
