In a hilarious review of the new Ghostbusters movie, The Onion‘s film critic Peter K. Rosenthal argues that the movie is horrible because we never truly understand why these ghosts aren’t burning in Hell for their earthly sins.
Also, speaking harshly of the four female leads, he says they “just don’t seem to be capable of dealing out the kind of divine justice the situation demands.”
How dare the Ghostbusters prolong the wrath the ghosts deserve by capturing them in their proton packs but not returning them to the underworld for continued torture?!
And you thought rebooting the franchise with female leads was the real controversy…
