I'm assuming you hating on it aren't aware of Fall Out Boy.. It's pretty much their sound, and they have some level of popularity for younger audiences. Plus.. its Missy Elliot. anything with her is NEVER considered bad. lol

Also.. It's not a remake..  A few of the lyrics are similar...  but "I'm Not Affraid" is the focus point of this song..

Sounds nothing like any FOB song I have ever heard. Not that I am a fan of their music, but it's not normally vomit inducing, like this is :)

Meh it's not terrible, in fact it may be the best thing about the movie so far



                                                                                     

That was, unequivocally, garbage. That is a terrible combination of artist (individually, they are alright) I would have respected them more if they just used the same song as the original, or an updated version but this is just awful. And I actually like FOB, or their albums From under the cork tree and Infinity on High to be specific, but I cannot get behind this.

FOB trolled themselves with this song. What a waste of talent :(.

But 67?! That's way too low.

Could be worse. Jumanji has a 37. Ghostbusters was a way better movie than Jumanji but still..37 would be unplayable if it were a game. 

Jumanji wasn't a great movie, but it wasn't bad enough for that terrible scrore.

One has to wonder if the same that happens with videogame reviews also happens with movie/music/etc., how many of those reviews are actually made by critics and how many by haters or attention seeking loosers.

I agree that the original Ghostbusters theme hasn't aged all that well, but this new song... this movie is checking all the wrong boxes.

 

But you know the worst part of this new remake? The original has a 67 in metacritic. This abomination could be "better" than the original!

That's not very surprising considering a lot of movies from the eighties and nineties that are considered classic have low ratings

Goonies.

Doesnt seem so bad.

Its a Fallout boy song thats for sure lol

 

Edit: Wait there's a new movie coming out? Didnt the last one flop?

Ghostbusters II was profitable $37 milion dollar budget and made $215 million dollars world wide.  It just didn't make as much money as the first one but since it also had a lot more merchandising and product tie ins and placements then the first movie my guess it was almost as profitable.



It's been years since i've heard a FOB song, their sound has changed a lot. Less pop punk and more pop. Not a fan.



I expected the movie to be a shitty movie, same for the music so i'm not disappointed



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

Purple Rain has metascore of 52 yet it made both Siskel and Eberts top ten movie list for 1984.  Recently saw it for the first time considering that pretty much nobody in the cast actually is a professional actor I give it a 7/10 the music in the film and its soundtrack is a 10/10.  Purple Rain is easily one of the 10 best albums of the 80s and also one of the best movie soundtracks of all time.
