    I haven’t seen the new Ghostbusters. The negative reviews stopped me from shelling out the cash for a ticket. I’ll add it to my renter list!

    You have excellent taste in entertainment. Either that or we love the same things. Both work. 🙂

    I enjoyed the new Ghostbusters, too. My daughter was so excited about it. Hearing people rip it apart was depressing. I loved the original Ghostbusters, and nothing will ever take their place, but it was a solid showing. I rolled my eyes when I first heard a live action Beauty and the Beast was coming out, but I took my daughter, and ended up liking it quite a bit.

    Loved seeing Emma Watson in the remake, but the film wasn’t all that different from cartoon version. Never saw Ghostbusters remake, but it’s on my list!~

    I’ll admit that I’ve always been intimidated by Star Wars books. Tried to read one once when I was younger and felt like I needed to finish high school before taking it on. Still, I love talking with people who have read the books in order to gain insights into the other characters and storylines beyond the main stream. I heard a lot of Star Wars book fans really liked the Rogue One story, but of course there are those who didn’t.

    I’ve seen Rogue One multiple times, but I need to catch up on the other movies. My son is a big Star Wars fan, so I know I’ll see The Last Jedi multiple times too.

    I didn’t *love* the new “Ghostbusters” but didn’t think it was as bad as everyone made it out to be. Am SO looking forward to “Last Jedi”!!!

    Rogue One was done really well indeed. I enjoyed Beauty and The Beast, except for it being almost scene for scene rehash.

    Loving the new Star Wars movies too – the prequel was so well done! 🙂
    Can’t believe I still haven’t seen Beauty & the Beast – and I’m looking forward to it!

    I haven’t seen Beauty and the Beast but the Harry Potters are fun. Star Wars really captures the imagination every time and Rogue One was very well done!

    I had zero interest in seeing the Ghostbusters or Beauty and the Beast remakes. I love the originals too much, so having them redone was just eh in my opinion.

    Excellent choices. I haven’t seen Ghostbusters yet, but I’m sure I’ll like it.
    I did like Rogue One. I kept waiting for people from the other films to walk through, but it was still good w/o them. 🙂

    Thank you for joining our blogfest today!!!

    This was fun. I haven’t seen Ghostbusters, read too much bad press about it, so glad to hear that was all fake news!

    I’ve seen both the original Ghostbusters and Beauty and the Beast back when they first came out in the theaters and I loved them both. Have not seen the remakes. I’ve never seen or read any Harry Potter products–guess they don’t much appeal to me. I’ve grown weary of most space movies though I did think Arrival was excellent, but most everyone I’ve talked to didn’t much like it.

    I didn’t know they’d made another Ghost Busters! That’s a must see. My link didn’t work on the Linky. I think it’s because I screwed up the path with the switch to my new blog. http://www.cleemckenziebooks.com

    Hi,

    A list that is absolutely on-point. I haven’t watched Ghostbusters but agree on the others. Great choices. Visiting from the blogfest and happy to be here.

    Haven’t seen the new Ghostbuster yet but plan to. I agree about the new Star Wars films. Can’t wait for The Last Jedi. I loved Rogue One, after we got the DVD with closed captioning. At the show, Hubs & I had a hard time understanding the actors. Too loud. We’re getting too old. LOL

    Beauty and the Beast was my favorite Disney movie when I was younger, and I worried about the new one, but I think they did a wonderful job. The Harry Potter flicks are fantastic!

    I still haven’t seen the latest Ghostbusters.
    The new Star Wars films have been outstanding and Rogue One is definitely my favorite so far.
    Thanks for participating in the blogfest!

    I enjoyed the new Ghostbusters movie but I wish they hadn’t spent so much gawddang money on it. The special effects were over the top and it was guaranteed not to make it’s budget back, so we were robbed of a sequel.

    I thought the first two Harry Potter movies were too close to the novels, and were a bit staid and boring because of it. I actually enjoyed Prisoner of Azkaban a lot more, because it took a few liberties and adapted the material. Books and movies are different styles of storytelling, you can’t tell stories exactly the same way in both.

    I adored the Timothy Zahn Star Wars novels. I wish they had adapted those into films.

    Oh this is a lovely collection, especially the science-fiction-fi and Harry choices. I have yet to see Beauty and the Beast but have heard great things so I will when the opportunity arises and I can’t wait for the next SW movie. 🙂

    Great movie choices. Two other movies that did the book complete justice: The Exorcist and The Silence of the Lambs.
