by TinkerTonkson 11/02/2016
When news of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot initially broke, suffice to say it caused a great deal of polarity in opinion. From the very beginning, it caused widespread division within the GB fandom, with further details and information giving greater traction to a constant war of words and outrage.
