Movie Review: Ghostbusters, 2016: A-

Don’t listen to the trolls, this is a funny and very original reboot.  The story centers on Erin (Wiig) and Abby (McCarthy), two egghead scientists whose lives have taken different paths.  After Erin is coerced into helping Abby and her new partner Jillian (played oh so well by Kate McKinnon of SNL fame) catch some ghosts, the team is reborn.  After recruiting newcomer Patty (or did she recruit them?), the fearsome foursome battle city politics, and a skeptical public on their way to saving the city from a dark menace intent on unleashing all the evil spirits trapped in the realm between the dead and the living.  Inspiring comedic performances by Chris Hemsworth as Kevin, a pretty-faced, but completely inept receptionist and of course Kate McKinnon as the eccentric Dr. Jillian Hotzmann.  Stay through the initial credits for more fun.  The only downer was the special effects used to create the final ghost (unless the film-makers were purposely doing an homage to the original 1980’s special effects capability).  The original cast does manage to make it back onto the screen this time and each is used perfectly and in no way suggestive that they had any past involvement with Ghostbusting.  Even Harold Ramis (who died last year) is represented, along with Ernie Hudson, Dan Akyroyd, Bill Murray and even Annie Potts who portrayed their original receptionist.

This is not the original and these ladies are dynamite!

7/6/2016 – Box Office Breakdown

Welcome back from a long holiday weekend (and for some, it was a bit longer due to work on Tuesday).  Again the little blue fish took the top spot while the next three spots were all new movies while the latest sequel in the box office finished up the top five.

Geek for E_Box Office Breakdown

  1. Finding Dory – just keeps on swimming to that number one spot.
  2. The Legend of Tarzan (new) – another Tarzan movie swinging into the theaters.
  3. The Purge: Election Year (new) – this franchise keeps bringing movies and people keep going to see it. Read our review right here!
  4. BFG (new) – beloved book by a few made leap to big screen by Steven Spielberg yet tanked at the box office in terms of cost of production vs tickets sold.
  5. Independence Day: Resurgence – dropped from second to fifth and has lots of mixed buzz in the market place.

News and Notes

  • Will Dory be challenged this weekend by a lot of house pets? The Secret Life of Pets debuts on Friday with a stellar voice cast so it will be interesting to see what happens.

See you all next week!

MOVIE SCREENING: Jason Bourne (TUE 07.26.16 @ 7:30PM)

He's figuring out his past, which could end his future!

He’s figuring out his past, which could end his future!

Love your Bourne?  So do we, and we know you want tix to the Baltimore screening, so here’s what you need to do, and not do!

You guys know we love selfies, and this promo is no exception.  We’re keeping this one simple, just post a selfie to the Facebook feed for this movie promotion, and add the hashtag #bourne.  We’re looking for your best and bravest disguises, your super-spy hero shots,  or even you on the scene in some exotic locale that only a world-famous spy would go to.  And if you’re brave enough,  show us your firearm love (no we don’t want you shooting anyone), just you and your favorite sidearm showing us how Bourne like you can be.  Post your images to our Facebook feed for this movie screening post (DON’T FORGET THE HASHTAG!).  The more imaginative the picture, the more likely you are to be voted for by the writers of GeekForE!  If we ‘like‘ your post on Facebook, then your name will be on our RSVP list at the theater door (your admission is for you and one guest). The contest runs from now until SUN 07.24.16 @ 9PM EST.  You can post as many entries as you like, but you can only win once. All winners will be notified via Facebook so be sure that we can ‘message’ you (and check your SPAM/OTHER box).  This screening is at Cinemark  Egyptian 24 @ Arundel Mills Mall @ 7:30PM on TUE 07.26.16.  GeekForE will begin voting/LIKE’s on MON 07.18.16 so you have plenty of time to post, and Photoshop to your hearts content.


1) Please do not post messages to this web page asking for tickets.  In order to win, you need to post an image to our Facebook feed (GeekForE!).  Also, if we cannot message you on Facebook, we can’t alert you to winning.  In fact there have been readers we’ve skipped over voting for in the past because we don’t have the option to ‘message’ them.  You must open that security in your settings and we are not Facebook Admins to show you how.

2) No substitutions or requests to change your RSVP name.  We are not a hostess at the local theater.  If you win and choose not to go, we understand.  You aren’t hurting our feelings, nor will we desperately seek to fill your spot.  We also won’t swap your name for a buddy because you can’t make it.  Don’t ask, it won’t be answered.

3) Your RSVP listing does not guarantee your seat.  Arrive early, very early as always!  When the theater is full, it is full and you will be turned away regardless of how cool you are.  Wait in line at the theater entrance door, when you reach the entrance, a studio rep will be there with our GeekForE RSVP list, just confirm your name.

Official description: An ordinary suburban couple (Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher) finds it’s not easy keeping up with the Joneses (Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot) – their impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated new neighbors – especially when they discover that Mr. and Mrs. “Jones” are covert operatives.
