Yes, Ghostbusters (2016)
is even better in 3D...but not because of the CGI ghosts, but because in a more plastic medium, you capture even more nuance in Abby's, Erin's, Patty's, and Jillian's faces; their expressions and reactions are fantastic.
Also, it occurred to me that I'm not in love with Holtzmann (German spelling!) but I love her -- I love that she gets to be so unapologetically herself; that she is here and queer and weird
: Yes, there are
lesbian and bisexual characters
who survived the ruthless culling of 2k16 by writers and producers
. But they all tend to be conventionally good-looking and very female-coded: long-haired and groomed* with perfect make-up and well-fitting clothing that accentuates their bodies. Holtzmann does have longish hair, but we wouldn't really know, would we, as she pulls it back it messy buns and sideswipes and such -- all the women except Erin in fact have Sensible Haircuts, and again it just makes me wiggle in joy. I'd be happy with Patty having More Hair, but her cornrows make so much sense especially given that, well, their ghostbusting won't exactly freshen them up.
We did get some neurodiversity in other female and queer characters like my beloved Sameen Shaw on Person of Interest
, it's true, but since in societal interaction she can (and in fact generally has to) fake being Normal, I feel it's a different story, and not this glorious weirdness.
* Kudos to Eliza Taylor from The 100
on that front, though: I love her for this tweet alone.
