Playful as a pussy cat,
Then momentarily out of action,
Temporarily out of gas,
To absolutely drive you wild, wild..
She’s all out to get you.”

Let’s talk about this scene in Ghostbusters…                                                   

So at first glance this is just some maths/physics gobbledegook on a whiteboard that looks cool but then you look closer…

See it yet?

“There’s a scene, late in the movie, with Kate McKinnon, that made me feel like I’ve never felt at a movie before. (No, it wasn’t the vibrating chair talking, this was real.) I should confess: Some of this is personal. My favorite character, in any big action-ensemble movie, is always the demolitions guy: the mad scientist, the weapons expert, the damage-dealer, the one who just wants to see stuff blow up. I say “demolitions guy” because he’s always a guy; they never cast the mad scientist or gun nut as a woman. But in this movie, he’s Kate McKinnon.

So she gets the scene these guys always get, in a movie like this. She has a wonderful new toy. The film slows down. She starts moving, and sure enough, she just starts unleashing raw havoc everywhere.

Something in my chest opened up. This is it, I realized. This is the thing I never got to see before. The scene where the demolitions guy is a girl. I was right: It actually does feel different when it’s a girl. This must be how guys feel every time they watch one of these movies. This is it, the version that’s for me, the scene I always wanted, and it’s here.

I don’t know what that feeling was, or how to describe it. But here’s the best way I can: For all the talk about “childhoods,” I got exactly 30 seconds in that movie where I felt like I was 8 years old again. Except that it was better than being 8 years old. It was like being 8 years old would have been, if the world had been fair.

I didn’t realize the political implications until I was out of the theater. I didn’t realize that this was also an openly queer actress, playing a more-or-less openly queer character (and we could do with more “more” and less “less,” Sony), that it might have hit other people in the audience even harder than it hit me, and for that reason. I didn’t think about anything, except that a woman was getting the same big slo-mo blowing-shit-up scene a million guys have gotten, and that scene is awesome. I’ve always loved that scene. Women aren’t treated as a big boundary-breaking historic symbol of progress and equality, in this movie. They’re treated like people.

And then you go out into the real world, where thousands of people are trying to hurt Leslie Jones on Twitter, and everyone hates Ghostbusters again. The same world you went into Ghostbusters to escape. But you can escape it, for a little while, in that theater. There’s a reason we need movies like these, after all.”

As a person with a liberal arts degree who basically has never worked in the field for which she studied, I submit to you that Patty Tolan could potentially hold at the very least a Bachelor’s in American History.

Statistically, Black women are the most educated, degree-holding group in America, and STEM degrees are not the only ones that matter.

She could also potentially be an autodidact, but there’s no reason she has to be.

STEM degrees are not the only ones that matter. Those of us with advanced degrees who are underemployed know this. Hell, several STEM degree holders are also underemployed.

Picture Patricia Tolan’s Master thesis on the history of capital punishment in New York being how she identified that ghost in the subway and tell me that isn’t fucking awesome.

She might also have an MA as an architecture historian, which is how she knows so much about specific buildings and their histories

ok but

architecture historian patty tolan predicting the kind of specters that might show up based on the age of the building

architecture historian patty predicting where most ghost activity will be based on which areas are undergoing extreme gentrification, all that ‘renovating’ stirs up a lot of angry ghost energy

patty knowing the escape routes because she’s familiar with the style of architecture and can get everyone out if the ghost gets too hostile

patty being really concerned over the amount of damage their equipment can do to historic structures (and holtz tinkering with it to make them do less damage in the physical world and more to ghosts because she cares about her gf)

patty geeking out when one of the more destructive technologies reveals the original facade of a cool building behind a soulless modern cover

patty being able to calm ghosts down by showing homeowners and renters and landlords what updates to the structure probably got the ghost mad and advising them to get rid of it because its not in the right style anyways

patty going to the archives and doing initial research of a ghost because the archives are cool and its nice to have her hands on original source material again, amazing to be actually using her degree, even if its for something weird and a little scary

@flarechaser: I CONCEDE- YOU HAVE MADE IT BETTER

I was just thinking this and I agree. Yes.

Someone print this out and send it to them for Ghostbusters 2.

Quick note: I don’t care if you didn’t like it, I don’t care about your hate. Stuff it. Do not bother me with any of that misogynistic, racist BS that’s going around. I see it, I see the garbage. This here post is about the love, and my own feelings. If you’re not here for the love, don’t let the door hit ya’…

SO.

I loved the original Ghostbusters. I still do, they still exist, I can still see them when I want to. Seeing this movie really made clear how much Ghostbusters influenced me, and my tastes. I didn’t even realize how much this was the backbone of my sci-fi love.

So sure, in hindsight I see some room for improvement, and what parts could use a little tweaking, but that movie was bound by so many obligations to the studio, IP holders, huge cast, I’m sure many executive “notes”, etc.

I was worried it would be gory and scary, but it was nowhere near as extreme as that stuff shown in previews for other movies. I felt like the ghosts where scary (The opening sequence was a thrilling kind of scary!), but it wasn’t hard to watch in the way that keeps me from watching so many other movies and TV shows. I don’t think there were even any dumb jump scares (I hate those the most! So triggering!) There was fun-gross, not gag-inducing-gross.

All the little nods to obsessive fans :

Cosplay lover? Prop lover? You get not just proton packs but a myriad of cool weapon versions to choose from. Clothes? Ordinary things you can mostly get off the rack, making it easier to access affordable, varied body cosplay.

All the cameos and nods to the original, without ruining pacing or feeling like “Ug, what now?” We love them, love them all so much, it’s a warm little hug every time you see an old friend. They are there because we love them, and we just like seeing their faces, and that is OK.

Details, Details, Details.

Bechdel Test A+++ - I’ve seen plenty of “chick flicks” and ladies-bein’-pals themed things, I don’t know when I have ever loved - in a pitter pat thump-a-bump way - seeing women have friendship. Modern women, women my age, women including and holding up other women. (More and potentially spoilery comments about passing the movie “tests” by this person here.)

No fatphobia? No transphobia? No rape as a plot device? Basically, a movie I can watch without being triggered and I didn’t even think about THAT until 2 days later. How these things do not have to be in every damn movie all the time! I’ve watched “Cuban Fury” a few times now and it has a character that’s just awful, and says the worst and most triggery things, but the rest of the movie is great, and Nick Frost is so amazing, and the finale is so wonderful, so I endure and skip around the bad bits. I WILL NEVER HAVE TO DO THAT WITH THIS MOVIE.

(I feel compelled to recommend Catty B’s here!)

Revealing microaggressions - All those little BS things where men and the power structure they benefit from try to take credit they don’t deserve, and at the very least hide away women’s talents and abilities.

Watch all the way through the credits until the theater stops rolling, they practically added a second movie in and after the credits. Least boring credits ever!

And the spoiler bits…
