Abstract [en]

This is a study that with a gender-conscious analysis compares four films with each other. There are two "original" films with men starring in them, Ocean's eleven from 2001 and Ghostbusters from 1984. As well as remakes of these films with women starring in them, Ocean's eight from 2018 and Ghostbusters from 2016. This trend to do remakes of films and replace men with women have become increasingly popular among the people who create them. Despite this, the result is not very positive among the audience. In this study, we will take a look into the movies and their reception.

 

Here, websites (imdb.com & rottentomatoes.com) were used to analyze the comments about the four different films, both the positive and the negative ones. The film analysis itself consists of selected scenes that was compared with each other in the various films. To make a comparison of the whole movies would need a much longer examination. That is why only some scenes were selected. The conclusion shows that it is rather the same films over and over again that are the problem for the audience rather than the female aspect.
