Do You Wanna Do a Remake?

“Do You Want to Do a Remake?”
With apologies to Frozen

Do you wanna do a remake?
Rewrite an eighties hit?
We could do an all new Ghostbusters,
Swap “his” for “hers”
And watch dudes lose their sh*t!

We’ll ruin all their childhoods
Our evil scheme
Will make all the dudebros cry!

Do you wanna do a remake?
It doesn’t have to be a remake…

(“But why should they all be women?”)
(Major side-eye)

Do you wanna do a remake?
Women tearing down the walls.
In truth these changes are long overdue.
It’s not some female plot to
Shrivel up your balls!

(“Oh, my. Maybe the cold does bother you, huh?”)

It gets a little boring
All these male-led films
With just one token female. Why?
(“Save me!” “Tame me!” “Help me!” “Kiss me!”)

“Will there be a female Slimer?”
“Will Ecto-one be painted pink?”
“You feminists will ruin everything!”
“Hollywood’s too left wing!”
“It’s gonna stink!”

The proton packs are ours now.
So just back off, man.
’Cause women can bust ghosts too!

So we’re gonna do a remake.

I love this.

Yeah, it is hard when a movie doesn't have anyone in the main cast who looks like you. Must be annoying.

Seriously, I think it has potential to be a different story since, and I love the originals, but come on. Number one was mostly about Bill Murray sexually harassing the Ghostbuster's first client for 90 minutes. I think there's room for different angles there.

I saw a very brief clip on @Midnight (my DVR picks up the opening minute or so) that showed the women. Frankly, I don't give a damn. I think it'll be an interesting twist.

The thing that I found scary was that I watched Roger Rabbit a couple of nights ago (out sick this week with the flu) and started reading the voluminous notes on IMDB. The two best were that Tim Curry was considered for The Judge but was deemed too scary. The other was that Bill Murray was considered for Eddie Valliant. I think that would have been a tragic mistake, Hoskins is/was a far better actor than Murray will ever be.

I say bring on the women, let's see what they do! But what I'd love to see is a gender-swapped Rocky Horror....

(tonight's movies are most likely Impromptu and Face/Off)

I beg to differ, sir. I, for one, would love to hear you sing that.
It's a filk. It is not Opera.
