Did You Know?


Even though the movie is set like the original in New York City, most of the filming of the movie is being done on locations in and around Boston. These locations include Chinatown in Boston, Easton and the old South Weymouth Naval Air Station (now Union Point condo complex) in South Weymouth, Massachusetts. The set at Union Point was set out as a NY city street complete with street lights, lots of green screens and the focal point being a two story structure with a office building feel to it.

Is all they could do is rip-off the original classic??
10 July 2016 | by (Huntsville, AL) – See all my reviews

Despite what you hear from a few Movie "Critics" that are notorious for selling (payolla) their reviews to the highest Studio bidder, the new Ghostbusters staring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Saturday Night Live standouts Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones is HORRIBLE!! We had a media showing last night and I thought I was going to be sick. The pace of the film is like molasses, the editing is amateur choppy, the acting is slapstick and the comedy is extra soft-porn SNL (Saturday Night Live). Yes I went in with considerable apprehension, but came out with a severe case of stomach cramps. As I said, the acting is abysmal, except marginally for Kristen Wiig, but that doesn't save this yawner. Melissa McCarthy has clearly become the female Adam Sandler / Mike Myers / David Spade (at his most obnoxious) and we can only hope that McCarthy fade into obscurity like the 3 aforementioned SOON! For a "reboot" of a classic, this film is pathetic. Ghostbuster Tampons is not worth your hard earned money for the price of the theater ticket. If you must see it, wait till it is on you free HBO or Showtime package .... and there is nothing else on even on PBS reruns. And "THAT is the View from the Balcony" (tm)(R) and all that other legal BS 2016.
