It would be a travesty to forget mentioning a certain all-female scientist movie. The remake of the 1984 cult comedy "Ghostbusters" has received very mixed reviews so far, but the NY Times calls the film "cheerfully silly" and praises Kate McKinnon in particular for being a "sublime nerd goddess." Even if the movie doesn't achieve unanimous adulation, the mere acceptance of an all-female cast is an encouraging sign.
