    Since when is Singapore in China?

  • Sardor Nuritdinov

    JustJared invented a new China with Singapore in it, looks like.

    They’re still trying to make this movie happen?

  • MikeHeXt

    >The only way this movie will make money is for an audience that will be more in quantity because its a US movie than quality.

  • AiiN

    Singapore is NOT part of China! We are a country of our own! Get your facts right! A little googling doesn’t hurt anybody!

    Hey JustJared, i love visiting your site but I must say I am very disappointed that you assumed Singapore is part of China. Please google where is Singapore at and how far away we are from China. We are a multinational country with 4 races and English is one of our strong language. Heck, we have been hosting the inaugural F1 night race (its the first street circuit in Asia too) with many Hollywood celebrities gracing our country. Hence, here Im humbly requesting you to update the article accordingly.

    Regards,
    Fellow Singaporean

    Chinese Singaporeans? Could be a Chinese Geocity known as Little Singapore? reciprocity to the effect that Bucharest is known as Little Paris.

  • jazz

    Sorry I meant multiracial, not multinational. Haha.

  • jazz

    While it is indeed majority of Singaporeans are Chinese, followed by Malay, Indian and Eurasians, English is our main working language and is the language used for our education. Though our country is just a dot on the world map (aka Little Red Dot), and time to time we have to explain to Westerners that we are not part of China, Im proud to say that we have and are the world’s best airport for the fourth year running as well as one of the Top 2 airlines of the world.

    Slowly but surely they say :)

    Singapore is in no way, shape or form Chinese or part of the Chinese communist empire. Either your writers are Chinese communist government propagandists or they made a grand moll typo of typos, Brainiac!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Robert Gary

    Are they still releasing that movie? I thought they were going to do a straight to video thing.

  • Rachel Sun

    Looking forward to this movie w/ these 4 talented funny WOMEN and despite the haters will be a big hit!

    This film looks like a big pile of shit in my opinion. Seriously, I can’t believe they are trying to sell us on the idea that this garbage is a worthy successor/replacement to the original. The original was and still is one of the greatest films of all time.
    And to all you brain dead maggots who are just raring to say “You just can’t stand the fact that they remade it with women in the lead. You’re just whining because of your own misogynistic hatred of women” to me, let me ask you a couple of questions.
    Did you know that Dan Aykroyd, the comedy genius who wrote the and produced the original alongside the late great Harold Ramis, has been trying to get his script for Ghostbusters 3 produced for nearly 20 years?

    And did you know that his script for a potential Ghostbusters 3 included parts where an aging group of paranormal investigators — the surviving original Ghostbusters — handed the reins over to a group of younger, more capable people?And did you know that the leader of this younger team of new Ghostbusters was going to be played — Aykroyd’s exact words were that he was going to “move heaven and earth to make sure she joined the cast” — by Eliza Dushku, who is most famous for playing Faith the Vampire Slayer on “Buffy”?And did you know that the plan was to get another smart, capable female actor to play Duskhu’s second in command?And did you know that he was looking at actors like Paul Rudd, Michael Cera, Seth Rogen, and Bill Hader — not to mention actresses like Amy Poehler, Samantha Bee, and Margaret Cho — to play the remaining members of the team?Obviously, you haven’t.

    So rather than produce a film conceived by the geniuses who created the original, starring the geniuses that created the original, using scripts written by the same people who wrote the original, Sony Pictures decided to hire a man who has stated — flat out admitted — that he was never that big a fan of the original Ghostbusters.Not only that, the first thing Paul Feig, the director in question, did was have Sony outright ban Aykroyd and anyone associated with the original from having any input in the new film at all.My point is this: have you ever heard the phrase “catching lightning in a bottle?” It means an event that is so difficult that if you ever pull it off once, the odds are you’re never going to be able to do it again, no matter how hard you try.My point is, the original Ghostbusters was such an excellent film, such a work of sheer comic genius, that trying to “remake” it is like trying to catch lightning in a bottle. Its going to be impossible. And if you intentionally exclude the geniuses who pulled it off the first time, your chances go from slim to none.And now that I’ve seen the trailer for the new film, my disgust at it is confirmed. The jokes are cheap and easy, there’s no visible chemistry or sense of fun to the film, and to be honest, the casting of nothing but women in the leads feels more like a cheap stunt than anything else.My dislike of this film is all about hatred of unthinking cretins who smile while they desecrate a classic piece of artwork. I’d have the same reaction to a child who took a magic marker to Von Gogh’s “Sunflowers”.Now, do you have anything else intelligent to say, or can we put this entire “you’re just a misogynist” thing to bed already and just agree that this new film is a huge pile of shit?
