    I actually want to slap myself for once supporting D'homer. What the hell was I thinking?
    He was sexist, incredibly intolerant of other opinions and had a very repetitive obnoxious posting style. Made you wanna bash his head in with a crowbar when he for the zillionth time spams "I think the show is as good as ever " or, even worse, "If the modern era sucks, then so does the classic era".

    Banning him permanently was the best decision ever made.

    I never really liked PBF. But I would be willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. In a way, I actually miss her odd sense of humor.

    It's telling that some of us seem to be more interested in the users that we dislike than those we like :-). Not a great way to breed the habits we desire.

    Ryan hasn't been on in a while, so that's a good start. Seems to have a lot of humility and doesn't take himself too seriously. Also wish the owners were active more often, not to interfere but in more of a surveillance role to facilitate more structured discussions. As some of you may know, I browse a lot of old threads and in a lot of them there was a prominent user called DoTheBartman who was often critical but never felt overbearing or snarky, but is sadly no longer active. Slightly miss Zombies' reviews, as they were in depth and analytical, but I realise his non-Simpsons posts were often immature and even his Simpsons reviews felt vain in that every buzzword was in Italics.

    When looking at the Lisa Goes Gaga rate and review thread, I found out that the Youtuber Phantom Strider used to have an account. Although he has many unpopular opinions, he always sounds captivated whenever he discusses anything and it's obvious that a lot of effort goes into his videos. A very likeable individual.

    I love phantomstrider! He's hilarious when making his lists and he's very mindful about other people's views. It's hard to get mad at him for even the dumbest opinions since he's just so likeable. He's nice to his fanbase and also has shown that no, he isn't as sensitive as he sometimes can come off as. Why else would he like shows such as South Park and Drawn Together? It's about the execution, which he very well explains.

    @Insanity Pepper, his reviews of Simpsons episodes were really good and in-depth, even if I dislike how he doesn't focus on humor at all.
    You're a dolt with the IQ of a peabrain that probably loves lowbrow sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory, Frasier and Seinfeld to not grasp the biting satire and wit of the classic 65 (Rugrats).

    Yeah, but not much. Outside of two posts in the thread about Ali, he hasn't posted in nearly a month.

    @Wyngarde hasn't posted in ages. Still find it so weird that i was into his band as a teen. Think he made the Simps section a bit more interesting too

    I can't wait for Wyngarde's return... if only to see how he reacts to being called out in the Ghostbusters thread. I still find it hard to believe that it took about two months for someone to call him out on his post.

    Ah okay - I'll address this. Here was what I think BuyMyCereal was so uppity about. Before the film opened, and going by the trailers alone - here's what I said at the time.

    "Another problem is that IF you think (like I do) that the fact all of them are women is a misstep, then you are labelled sexist.
    Yeah, I'll admit i'm openly sceptical about the all-girl thing. But NOT because I'm sexist - there are a number of my favourite films in which the genders of the leads could easily be reversed and I'd have no problem with it - Withnail or Edward Scissorhands or Bambi etc. It's because like James Bond, a Ghostbuster is essentially a male character, and here's why -
    the central JOKE and therefore the framework of the character - is putting these fantastical and other-worldly pursuits in the hands of the stereotypical workaday blue-collar schmoes. That's the gag. They're ciggie-in-the-mouth, bitching about their shifts EXTERMINATORS. that's what makes all the ghost stuff work... combining fantasy and folklore with the drudgingly mundane.
    But that stereotype (workaday, blue collar schmo) with it's wisecracking, overalls-covered-in-shit and quoting unscrupulously outrageous and made-up-on-the-spot fees - is ostensibly male. We could pretend that it's not but in 2016 and even more so in 1984 - of course it is. Hire an electrician or exterminator and you'll see what I mean. I'd prefer it if more women were in those jobs but lets not kid ourselves that they are. If we went through the phonebook and called round i think the results would be pretty conclusive. But it's that contrast that enables us to go with the ghost stuff, that's the joke.
    There's no denying there's something about this new premise that seems a tad unconvincing and could throw the whole feel off track, the feel that made the first one so easy to connect with.
    Also - what exactly is wrong with occasional androcentric movies? why is it a crime? Diner and Stand By Me are about the ritualistic and childlike bonds of male friendship... Now i'm not saying that's what Ghostbusters is about but It's like remaking Steel Magnolias with an all-male cast. Or making Bridget Jones a guy. What would be the point? it completely turns it into something else."

    Now, I think most of us can agree - now all that ridiculous and thoroughly depressing shitstorm has died down - the remake wasn't good. But not for the reasons I was sceptical about.
    I thought one of the fundamental ingredients of what made GB 84 work was that particular 80s stereotype and thus that contrast. If you’re doing broad 80s comedy then it stands to reason you use broad 80s archetypes. There’s nothing wrong with using traditionally male archetypes just as there’s nothing wrong with traditionally female archetypes.
    We’re in a much cooler time now where equality is closer than ever. But we can’t revise history, that’s just hysterical and weird. Nor should we, we need to learn from what we did right and what we didn't.

    But really, looking back at it now and looking at the remake... Yeah, I was wrong.
    I've realised that underneath, it's not really about that. It's about a group of friends / colleagues starting a business.
    And that CAN work in any era with any cast, male or female.
    I realised that 30 minutes into the film. So of course, my apprehension was unfounded. And I really was willing it to be good, because I love Ghostbusters and the remake was crammed with solidly funny performers (Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Cecily Strong, Matt Walsh, on a good day Melissa McCarthy) but it was just a misfire. Everything was off. Too much rambling and unfunny improv, too much awkwardly trying to hit certain beats that would appeal to fans of the original, and it just felt like some of the leads were a little unsure of how to play their characters... McKinnon was fantastic in The Spy Who Dumped Me - and I'm really looking forward to her getting the perfect vehicle to showcase her talents like Wiig did with Bridesmaids, fuck knows it's way past due.

    But as for 'calling me out' for hypothesising why a gender reversal MAY not work in a remake of a particular kind 80s film which none of us had yet even seen, come on.
