Confession: I was not a huge fan of the original Ghostbusters movie. I haven't seen more than the first one. It's not that I didn't like the first one. It's just that I saw it in the theater (yes, I am that old), and it scared me a little. Because of my wimpy nature, I never saw any of the others.
When the announcement was made about the reboot of the series, my first thought was, "meh." I didn't really care one way or another. But then the controversy about an all female cast started and I started caring. I don't do well with misogyny, especially when it invades fandom. Of course, I had to see it opening weekend.
I went into the movie with no expectations. I was just going to be supportive of funny females. I loved it!! It was funny, action-packed, and just a little bit sentimental. The fact that three of the leads were scientists, made it even better! Yay for smart girls!!!
If you go, make sure you stay to the end of the credits. It makes me excited for the next one!
