Ghostbusters Review — I ain’t afraid of no environmental regulators (E08)

Criticize After Dinner reviews the original ghostbusters

Excited at the news of a revamped Ghostbusters will an all-female starring cast, we brushed off the dust on our old VCRs, and gave the original a whirl. The constant sexism made for a difficult watch, but we split heavily on if the movie stood the test of time. The movie also offered a warped perspective on environmental regulators, academia, and the 1980s’ love affair with the entrepreneurial spirit. We closed out with our list of dos and don’ts for the new movies.

Divergent and Insurgent Review

Criticize after dinner's DIvergent and Insurgent review

Returning to our key tween demographic, we had a conversation to explain the ins and outs of Divergent and Insurgent, for both the hardcore fans and those who’ve wisely skipped these movies. The trilogy they came from is almost a response to Hunger Games, though despite a strong female lead, these movies miss the mark on questions ranging from gender to class to identity. So join in to see if the erudite & candid Alexis and amiable & abnegating Chepe can set aside their identities and come to some agreement on this dystopic young adult series for the all-too-easily entertained Reagan fan club.
