Ghostbusters


Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! I loved Ghostbusters 2 as a kid and I'd watch it every Halloween. I finally got around to watching Ghostbusters 1 last year to learn the back story. When Mindy Kaling wrote her first book she said wouldn't it be cool if they remade Ghostbusters with an all female cast, and what do you know it happened! I think it's really awesome to have a blockbuster movie where the main cast is all female and who are scientists. The movie will also have action figure dolls which is pretty groundbreaking considering it will be little boys playing with female action figures.

The storyline for the movie is following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat. They hire the hot Chris Hemsworth to be their secretary. There were quite a few moments in the movie that had me cracking up laughing! At the end of its first weekend, it's number two in the box office so it did pretty well. You can expect to see cameos from the original Ghostbusters cast and your favorite ghosts Slimer and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.

Last week I watched the cast do their media circuit and have been in awe of Melissa McCarthy's fashion! I love a good yellow dress; she wore them to the movie's premiere and to the Today show. She used to have difficulty finding designers to dress her for red carpets because she wasn't a certain size. Now she started her own fashion line, trimmed down a bit and always looks so stylish on the red carpet. Her co-star Leslie Jones tweeted last month how she couldn't find a designer to dress her for the movie's premiere and threatened to put those designers on blast who refused her! lol

A couple weeks ago Lyft brought the Ecto 1 car to DC and you could request a ride in it! Sadly I had nowhere to go those two days and missed out. Sad face. I just finished Bobby Brown's book and it reminded me of his cameo in the movie Ghostbusters 2 and his song for the movie "On Our Own."

Too hot to handle, too cold to hold They're called the Ghost busters and they're in control Had 'em throwin' a party for a bunch of children While all of the while the slime was under the building 
So they packed up their group, got a grip, came equipped Grabbed they Proton packs off their back and they split Found about Vigo, the master of evil Try to battle my boys? That's not legal

  12. I love that they chose to have an all-female cast because it's going to help empower young girls everywhere! I'm sure the action figures will be adored by little girls as well. I'm glad that people are loving the movie.
