Is on his phone watching a video at full volume with no headphones. Please god don’t let him be sat next to me.
Flight is delayed because someone turned up to the airport but forgot I’d. Managed to check in, pass security but can’t get through boarding. We’re going to be late.
Even more annoying is that I found an airport lounge and this is going to cut into my airport lounging time. Argh. Still 20 quid might seem a lot but for decent Wi-fi, drinks and food it seems a winner.
Even if the reviews say they turn away people for any reason and guess who looks like crap today.
Here we go!!
As always I seem to leave it till the last moment before deciding to go but as Nina has offered me a place to stay for the weekend I’m making a pilgrimage to Oktoberfest.
It’s literally just a flying visit. I was up this morning (Sunday) at 7 AM to pack my stuff, book hotel parking and then have a good idea of trying to book into an airport executive lounge because my layover in Amsterdam is 2 1/2 hours.
Alas you cannot make a booking on the day of travel so I’m going to have to slam it with the rest of the people there. Which isn’t too bad but I worked out that €20 is more or less the same amount I would spend on beer and food anyways but it would’ve been nice to have the Wi-Fi connection and comfortable seat. I might try my luck when I get there.
Jesus a man cant catch a break. I spoke to Nina the other night and shes dropped on me that shes now poly.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10154513784296805&set=a.423827176804.221583.728701804&type=3
So she said to me that shes dating someone and met not only her fellas wife but her fellas wifes kid as well. Seriously I cant make this stuff up, thers a girl telling me shes met a guy and his wife and daughter…
Perhaps I shouldnt be surprised and this is normal in this day and age. Hell im pretty much sworn off women who arent eurpoean. I draw the line at Filipino but eurpoean, hell yes.
Ive had a night of just tellig kari to fuck off in a subtle way but righ tnow im too pised to talk..
Well for me, the Marsh who I turn to and who I asked I managed to get rejected five times in a night. That’s pretty impressive even by my standards.
You see at the end of this month I’m doing a once-in-a-lifetime bicycle ride, the Prudential ride London, Surrey 100 which is around about 100 miles. Now if anybody knows me they know I absolutely hate London. I hate everything about it. I hate dear’s faux pas ball sheds of trying to be politically correct when they actually don’t know who they are.
First off I asked Nina. She was initially interested in the idea but no less than eight hours later after talking on the phone she said it was “too expensive and even worse to spontaneous.
So I then asked my friends Sue who I’ve known for many, many years and she shot me down pretty much instantaneously saying that she had new holidays left until October.
Sensing that things were going to get a little bit desperate I then ventured further into my list of contacts and asked Julie. Julie is a girl I went to the cinema with and they fancied some six years ago and recently got out bye. Unsurprisingly she also declined the offer but then again she has three kids. What is it with me managing to find women who have three kids.
Finally I asked Carrie who then proceeded to shove it in my face by showing her calendar to me of how “busy” years with not only life but the amount of partners she has.
Before I approached any females I did ask a couple of friends who I know live in London and could you believe it, they all have plans on that weekend. It’s not like I’m particularly needy for all I was hoping for in the grand scheme of things in my life is that in the evening that I cycle at hundred miles I just like to have a little bit of company, someone to share the moment andunts be able to talk to.
I’m trying to avoid being melancholy and not just write blog posts about negativity but it really does hit home even more so recently about just how you, well I just don’t have any friends in this world. I get home on a Friday and I pretty much don’t speak to anyone until Monday. Sure I might have the odd interaction with the woman who works on a checkout counter in a supermarket but that’s really honestly it.
Just imagine that for a second, when you finish work at say 5:30 PM, you go home and you speak to know one until the next day at work.
Holy shit this is a mess of a film and I’m just 9 minutes into it. There was something about the actual font and using the Ghostbusters music way tooooo early in the film..
A holo laser for a reverse tractor beam.. Seriously. I know theres a littel bit of explainging needed for the younger generatino who probably doesnt get things.
Well it could be worse, they could be trying to sex up a main character.. oh wait that was implied at the start of the bloody film.
Does every single scene need some music playing over the thop of things. Side note listening to this on headphones why are there sound effects of crows in a freaking city.
What the hell is going on with the special effect. The PKE meter just looks shit, you can almost hear the battery whirring.
Hang on a second, arent we in a modern day time where youtube is being used, uber exists and all that sort of stuff and yet when it comes to displaying Ghost Hunters… suddently theres an old CRT screen which just also hapens to be 4:3 aspect ratio…
That moment where they discoer the old ghostbusters building and the first fuck you is delivered. So I guess this is an adults movie after all..
Ah so chris hemsworth walks in and now we seem to have some sort of realyl badly played improvisation act with a logo for 7/11. Just how much more corporate shilling can we get into a show. I had let go the whole pringles moment once you pop you cant stop.
39:17 – Thats what this film needed, a really poorly acted graffiti artist bit with a black actress giving so no.. o.. so…stereotypical sass. I dont know what was worse the acting or the pretend spray painting. Why the fuck is there a need to talk about a logo, the original didnt need it because it was a good film… a GOOD.. film…. we seriousy had a scene about a ghost with tits…….christ..
45 minutes.. guest what.. paddys got a vehicle…. oh i wonder what this could be…
53 minutes – Wait a minute. Its only Bill bloody Murray: Wait… hang on.. the total contribution by Bill is 3 no wait 9 words in total. The last 3 being oh hell no.. A couple of minutes later we har the phrase “we wont get slimed again” At what point did we know what slimed was?
56 mintes. The new ecto 1… jesus i thought this film was a reboot not a cliche. And now that new busters theme plays. What are you try ing to do right now…. Its that bad even the lyrics have been sanitised.. “Who you gonna call” is now who can you call.. Fuck.. help me..
Even the suiting up scene just looks like cheap ass knco offs. At tleast .. wait a moment i just saw yet anohter product placeent for Heinikkan
58 minutes. Concert scene… and well done. its a new low in teh world of lip synching and miing.
Lets light em up. Oh Jesus.. please now.. come up with an original catchphrase. Im almost yearning for something original so at least you can go… wel thats not bad…
At this point im realiing that imt not even halfway through this “movie”
2 minutes later after a bad concert scene we have yet another dont light them up.
1hr 3 minutes. Now we hae another reference of why we dont cross the streams. They way half the cast are pretengin the streamers are doing something couldnt even be classed as b grade casting.
Things are getting that bad that when the singer goes :we are the beast of mayhem.. hawww…..” The microphone is actually away from his mouth and hes walking off stage…
1.06.. Bills back… lets see how this plays out. Well he single handedly in 4 minutes out acted the entire cast…
1.10. Seriously were into a skit about patrick swayze movies….. is thsi family guy? Right now this is a war just to get through to the end of the film.
15 minutes. Dear Gold seriously did we just see the goose from Top Gun mimic a scene from meet the parents?
Finally seems like we have some originality with new toys for the new Ghostbusters. Its just a shame that the actresses are handling them like they are actual props and not real life instruments. I cant reconcile with this film if it is trying to use generally satirical slapstick humour or if is a general attempts to actually try and be funny..
One hour 21 minutes. For a film thats embodied copying the original whenever possible now they seem fits with just over half of the movie go on to change the sound of the siren on the act so on. Well I suppose at least trying. Just like Im trying to find something redeemable about this film. Also just a side note about some of the same defects because like I said earlier I am listening through a set of headphones. What is it with the overbearing signs of boots walking on a heavy floor? Half of the women are incredibly thin I wouldnt even say the other two are particularly the other big nature but yet almost every seam you hear the sound of marching boots on a concrete floor
One hour 21. Oh my god is actually Janine from the original? It says something about the film when the cameos are actually better done the actors themselves.
Also how does a film with such a massive budget have such tacky -looking effects that make George Clooneys turn as Batman looked like a cinematic masterpiece eligible for Oscar nominations for best visual effects? F
One hour 23. N this just really isnt g Jesus Christ they are really trying to stretch out the gag about pestering arent they .
One hour 31 and one of the main protagonists in the film has been taken over by the bad guy and one of our heroes is dangling out of the window was almost “watchable” until you see just how bad the grip one of the ladies has on her fellow counterparts wrist. Now you could accuse me of being overly nitpicky at this particular moment in time but it feels more like Im just watching this to get to the end of it to say “I watched the new Ghostbusters”.
So far in this film its only Melissa McCarthy Hughes bought some sort of acting “quality to this film so far”
one hour 37. The second best actor is the guy is Chris, wodden as fuck, Hensworth.
Thats not exactly complement to this film really is it. What is it with the overpowering soundtrack? It always feels like insecurity that the actresses can stand up on the Rhône feeds an instant we have to have this constant soundtrack of peril and drama.
One hour 40. While did the director feel that they needed a close-up of the number plate for the Ghostbusters mobility Dan Ackroyd mixes guest appearances on at this point even saying the immortal line “Im not afraid of no ghosts”. Will this cliché the film never end? A class 5 floating vapour is delivered with more belivability from Dan. From directing and editing point of view its bloody obvious that the scenes were rehearsed so much because when Dan Ackroyd shakes his head its completely out of time from the reverse view to the front view.
I mean seriously considering this is supposed to be a brand-new radical relaunch of a new franchise demands or just of dunny shots to shot remake of Ghostbusters featuring a female cast. Even Slimer sounds way too human.
And speaking of which a ghost can also drive a car now apparently even though they have no appendages that could reach the pedals. And they also seem to know what side the road to drive on.
We seem to go from one point of bordering on to adult humour to then explaining every small little single thing about Ghostbusters. Its sort of like this film really doesnt know who is trying to be aimed out, is aimed at new people who have never heard of the immortal Ghostbusters or a younger generation and if the younger generation is the target why are there so many F bombs in this film?
right now the above screenshot shows exactly how I feel just how ugly this film is,
one hour 43 minutes just when I thought the film really couldnt get any worse now the main bad guy has made our law enforcement people and military types start dancing to the clichéd BG tracks.
Well over 46. Jesus Christ Im tired especia start to hear things like “say hello to my little friend” Well I suppose I should be grateful at this point that theyve started using some lines from other films to try and answer some “entertainment” I swear to God theres even a moment with tasers that reminds me of Ironman.You know what I mean the scene where Tony Stark meets the guy on the racetrack who has these really cool laser whips.
So right now the film is back in the middle of the scene where the dancing and for some reason any females in the military seem to have quite a healthy amount of make-up on them.
One hour 55 minutes into this film I finally lost the will to blog about it. After a few tedious moments of scientific bubble to try and make the film seemed somewhat plausible, the Ghostbusters car falls into a pit, slimy and his girlfriend are rejected and then we are treated to another rip-off seen and this time its of diehards on the famous ejector Scene.
One hour 57. In the final climatic act of the film to the Ghostbusters are falling, big emphasis on falling into some sort of supernatural pit. It just seems however that despite the wind rustling their clothes their hair stays absolutely perfect which sums up just about how much care has been taken into production qualities of this film.
It’s 2:34 AM in the morning and thanks Mark it’s finally over. Know when I first heard about this reboot I thought it was initially going to suck because it leaned incredibly clichéd to just replace all of the main characters with a female cast I’m glad to say I was wrong. It sucked because it was a genuinely shipped film. There was not one redeeming quality about this film.
No some films which have been rebooted will have a crafty nod or a cheeky wink to their original beginnings as they quite rightly should have but this doesn’t do that. It relies wholeheartedly on its predecessor to try and make itself a film and fails hard. In fact I’m going to named it one of the worst movies I have ever seen and that includes “dude, where’s my car,”.
There is not one single redeemable thing about this film which would make me even recommend it to anyone if they had watched all of the films in the entire world twice. The direction is banned, the acting is bad and some of the edited shots are so excruciatingly bad that you can’t help but sit back and not watch the film but analyse it and wait for the barklock up. T but it was just crap
So brexit. the end have cometh. You think that youre a cunt. You forget what this country of ours is about. We over come, we were better independant. OH we are so sorry that your house is actually worth the practical value it was built and and a fair profit is worth it.
but what about the euro.. ok so for those of you who never venture futher than your loccal shopping complex.. Wait lets talk about that shall we. Brexit.. the death of the UK… shit we are fucked.. Oh wait. those shopping malls do so well for the high street, they really encourage products from the uk.
But wait.. fuck me.. the bankers… they are threatening to leave.. no .. please dont go.. please dont leave us after the major financial collpases.
Oh noes some corporsations are going to leave the UK as the country donest mention that Apple buys the old power plant in london that no one oculd get planning permission for before apple bought them.
Does anyone metion that google and apple bought places in london recently as well
The euro has always been shit and blaming brexit is just a sign you cant accpet that the pound isnt worth double to the dollar no more.
Perhaphs instead of taking to facebook to be a pissed of troll you could inspire peopel to buy local, support the bloke down the road who cuts open a cow or pig, makes saugsages which arent full of shit and dares to charge you 30 p more for 8 thicker sausages.
Sausages what the fuck are you talking about Marxword??? This is the point, if you cant grasp whats on your door step, if you suffer a traffic jam just to go to a shopping center when you know you could park locally and pay a bit more but refuse to pay for council based parking but will swallow a cum shot from a corporate company then dear reader you hae no right to complain about brexit.
You took it in the ass all this time and now suddenly because its populaar you dare to complain. hmmm sounds familiar doesnt it….
