    Also the costume designs suck,no matter what the busters are in they look someone's frumpy lunch lady or mom, even the kooky inventor, and they only seem to get passionate over science, ghosts, and food. Feig hates women, if this is what he thinks of them.
    Also seconding the pedo thing.

    I just finished watching it and it is baaaaaad

    bad editing
    lazy camera work
    bad props
    stiff acting
    weak jokes
    overbearing product placement
    wrong tone
    plot holes
    stupid looking CGI..... it was all so bad

    Who the hell was the director of photography on this thing? And did no one working on this know what structure is? Or actually, the probably did but this movie was clearly chopped to hell so bad no editor could save ibt (the original cut was over 4 hours). There's one joke in the trailer missing from the actual movie that would have made a later joke actually funny. I chuckled a few times at the start, but soon I was too tired from the stupidity of this film for anything to still amuse me.

    And the cameos and callbacks are just shoehorned in. They wanted to get as many of them in there as they could but didn't actually like the original so it all falls flat. They just show up at random moments or as random characters. The only person doing any acting is Jones (and maybe Hemsworth) but everyone else is shit. I usually like Wiig, but here she (and everyone else) has no on screen presences. Some people liked McKinnon and though her character was funny but... was she in another movie? she doesn't seem to interact with any of the other characters. She's just walking around talking to herself. The bad guy has no motivation (who even bullied him? he's a good looking man), and no one else's motives make sense either. Kevin is almost funny.

    I didn't get the "man hating" feel everyone else was talking about... I think people are just seeing things that aren't there.

    This movie was just garbage.

    The costumes made sense. In the original part of the joke was that they were basically ghost pest control. Here they went with more of a garbage men feeling. It wouldn't have made sense to give them cool or sexy outfits... not that most of them would look good in one anyway.

    also, every time they said "fourth cataclysm" I thought they were making some kind of Evangelion reference.

    The man-hating thing came from the bi-dimensional portrayal of men in the movie: Either they're retards or assholes. Look at every male character in the movie:

    Tour guy at the beginning: Retard
    College dean: Asshole
    Chinese takeout guy: Asshole
    Secretary: Retard
    The mayor: Asshole
    Singer at concert: Retard
    Bill Murray: Asshole
    Bad guy: Asshole (and with Dr. Evil-tier comic villain lines, so I guess Retard too)

    and that's all the male characters I can recall because pretty much everyone was forgettable

    Okay, the 2nd weekend dropoff rate is in so it's time for me to do another little analysis.

    Fembuster's 2nd weekend dropoff was around 53%, which isn't catastrophic, but still rather bad. The average is about 40% (some say 50%, but from my cursory glance at the numbers that seems way off) so this is not good for them.
    The film has been doing well regarding theatre drops, but movie halls aren't really going to stop showing it until the third week, so we won't know until the start of next month. Even then, I don't anticipate a big reduction of venues showing it because of the type of movie it is.
    Fembusters has also had some good luck in the fact that the two movies expected to steal most of its audience (the new Star Trek and Ice Age) are overtaking it, but are nonetheless underperforming, giving it some breathing room.
    It's next challenge is the foreign market, where it faces a number of problems. Firstly, it's second largest market, china, has already been closed to it. Next on the list would be the anglosphere, however, the film already debuted there before the US and preformed poorly. This leaves only the collective rest of world. Unfortunately, comedy tends to fail overseas because humor doesn't cross language and cultural barriers, leaving Fembusters in a precarious position. Furthermore, the original is mostly a US cult phenomenon in the first place and doesn't appear to be very highly anticipated abroad.
    Currently the foreign/domestic split is a 29%/71% which is a really bad indicator, however it is unclear in how much of the world it has already premiered.

    Overall, the movie spent the past week following industry wide trends, but lagging behind al of them, with lower highs and bigger lows.

    My prediction for it is that, by the end of its life-cycle (barring some unexpectedly positive reception overseas), it would have made back more or less its production budget, making it a monumental failure.

    Especially considering they spent 140 million as well on marketing

    The numbers vary, but they are more or less this:
    The budget was 155, but is counted as 145 after tax breaks and rebate. P&A was an additional 100 (don't know where you're getting your 140 figure). One analyst estimated that the overall cost was 375, but sony countered with 300 (however it's in their interest to downplay). Furthermore, sony doesn't keep the gross sum of the money made by ticket sales, they share it with the movie theatres, but how this is split is unclear. Lastly, the amount of money a movie needs to make to be profitable is a closely guarded secret, however Fieg himself blurted out like an idiot in a press conference that the film would have to make over 500 for there to be a squeal, so people now assume that's the real number (ignore sony's claims the already be working on part 2. Unless they are bound by contract with Ivan somehow, which I doubt because such a contract would undoubtedly have some profitability clause that is now null and void, this is just spin and lip service).

    Well, it looks like they've already brunt through their entire english speaking market to no avail. It's out in about half of the intended countries and still has a few big markets to hit, but some of those are so far down the line it's bound to have a detrimental effect... not looking promising. My estimation stands.

    Maybe Sony should have spent that money on selling the movie instead of arguing with neckbeards on the internet who said they don't like their movie.

    I think the real question is whether or not it can live up to the real ghostbusters
    No one fucks with the boogieman
