    Wow, I so wanna see all of them except the purge. I saw the first one and it was too much for me. I’ve heard many are upset because Ghostbusters is all women this time around but I’m looking forward to it.

    • Carl Williams

      I never saw the first Purge, just not my type of movie. I am interested in seeing the new Ghostbusters. I am all for new takes on old stuff. If they did it with four guys then naysayers would just bitch that those four cannot hold a candle to the originals. They are going to bitch no matter what.
