According to Paul fiege, the director of the 2016 all female reboot of Ghostbusters, claims that the reason it bombed in theaters was allegedly because it was linked to Hilary Clinton and claims the Hilary Clinton hate in 2016 is the reason the Ghostbusters reboot bombed.
Look if you liked the reboot, I'm not going to judge as you're free to like what you like but I personally thought it was a piece of shit but that's besides the point. I'd explain why I didn't like it but I want to save my thoughts for a future review on here so check out my profile if you're that interested in knowing why I didn't like it. And I'll give you a hint, it has nothing to do with the all female cast. Just throwing that out there.
Anyways I personally think Paul fiege is an idiot. Seriously Ghostbusters flopped because of people hating on Hilary Clinton during her presidential campaign? This is arguably the stupidest excuse I ever heard.
I love Paul fiege as a filmmaker but he's making me lose respect for him when he says stupid shit like this but what are your thoughts? Does he have a point? Or is he an idiot making excuses?

I've seen Hilary Clinton get blamed for everything from child trafficking to earthquakes to the heartbreak of psoriasis, but the failure of "Ghostbusters" is a new one.
The 2016 "Ghostbusters" failed because it was a roaring dumpster fire of a movie. End of story.
For the record, I don't have very high hopes for the upcoming "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" reboot attempt either.
I'm cautiously optimistic about "Ghostbusters Afterlife" honestly. While the trailer itself didn't blow me away like it did some fans, I did find it interesting in the fact that the trailer did make it seem like they're actually trying to do something new and different this time with the franchise, which is a step up from both the 2016 version of Ghostbusters and ghostbusters 2.
I think one of the main problems with both ghostbusters 2 and the reboot in 2016 is the fact that most of the key story ideas they each had were stolen from the original movie, which made them both seem a bit uninspired. And this is coming from a guy that actually liked ghostbusters 2, but still.
Personally, I think Feige just needs to shut up and stop bringing this up. All he's doing is making himself look bad at this point.
I know he was upset recently because WB announced they'd release the Snyder Cut of Justice League on HBO Max, and now wants to have a director's cut of his ghostbusters reboot now. Not that I mind, as various alternate versions of movies and director's cut of films get released all the time. Now whether or not Sony agrees to that is another story.

Which Hilary Clinton lie leaves you the most exasperated/fuming/rolling with laughter?I was young enough during her husband's presidency to see his lying about 'sexual relations' as funny. I was so young and naive that it made me see him as 'kinda cool'.With Hilary though, the email scandal...

Would you vote for Hilary Clinton just to have a female president?Or, do you know anyone who is? I actually do. This woman says she wants girls everywhere to be inspired, to know that they can accomplish anything.
