Toys for the new Ghostbusters film are already in clearance, even though the film doesn't open for another four days.
On the other hand, it currently scores 77% (53 to 16) on Rotten Tomatoes. Who's right?
We'll know for certain on Friday, but right now I'm inclined to trust the people who are gambling money on it. The stores have put that stuff in clearance because it isn't selling. So if I was a gambling man, I'd be betting against it.
I won't be seeing it, but that's no distinction. The last movie I watched in a theater was "The Matrix". And I think that newest American movie I watched at home (on optical disk) was "The Incredibles". Hollywood lost me a long time ago. (It didn't help that I don't own a TV. I haven't missed it, either. And when I had a TV, the last show I watched regularly was "Good Eats".)
UPDATE: Anyway, come Friday I'll be too busy watching the AT-X version of "Ange Vierge"...

Ayaan Hirsi Ali seems to be a better fit for the subject of extended hate from the progressive thinking community.
Mind you, a female adaptation of Gandhi would Indira: the story of a woman leader who sowed ethnic and religious hatred, started wars of aggression, destabilized neighbors, and was killed in her own garden because she did not bother to replace her bodyguard detail of some of the same co-religionists of the group she was inflicting hatred and strife on.
