"Reboots" are a scourge. Financial security driving "art"- exactly the opposite of what should be.

Yes, because we all know the dastardly person who posts as "tronnei" is determined to get malware onto our computers.

'Zactly what I thought it would be. (Saw a blurb about it this morning).

Not really impressed with the trailer. Heck, I didn't think they should have made GB2 way back when, so, no love for the reboot here. thumbs down

Blind links sucks balls. A brief description shouldn't be that big of a chore.

Maybe the crabbing is just so predictable that some people can't resist.... like keeping a cat entertained with a laser pointer....

Did not think this was a blind link.

Saw the original over the weekend - it's really held up well, still absolutely hilarious.

Also saw the new Ghostbustermobile parked on the street on the UWS last September. Not sure what they were doing with it - a guy was guarding it and told us absolutely not to post photos of it on social media.

So, of course, we did, which, of course, was what he wanted us to do.

"We also have the trailer saying that Ghostbusters is about “four scientists,” which is inaccurate, but presumably “three scientists and one other dude” was just too long."

A friend is thrilled, he worked as an extra and actually is in two different scenes on the trailer. He is hoping they stay in the released film.

This.

A few observations:
- Slimer's back!
- Those outfits are FUGLY.
- The ghosts, OTOH, look amazing.
- Kate McKinnon strikes me as being one crazy bitch... and I mean that in the best possible way.



It is what it is.

I cannot enjoy Melissa McCarthy.

Not one iota.

The original set the bar high, and though the remake bears a resemblance, something a lot of remakes fail to do, I think I'll pass.

The soundtrack may be enjoyable.

It's pretty early to pass judgement, I admit, but I'm just not feelin' it.


- The ghosts, OTOH, look amazing.

Yeah, no, even that's not enough. Maybe if it gets some good buzz.


A friend is thrilled, he worked as an extra and actually is in two different scenes on the trailer. He is hoping they stay in the released film.

Let us know if he makes the cut.

There should be a law that says if you put it in the trailer, it has to be in the movie.

A couple of cool scenes in trailers didn't show up in the movie, and I was disappointed.

It's in the trailer, and now the studio says the movie is too long, too bad. Make the cuts somewhere else.

At least he'll always have the trailer.

I'm not worried about that. I'm saying it is inconsiderate not to give an idea of what the subject of this post is. I should not have to click on a link to find out, and there are no other clues. I may have no interest in the subject, but I cannot determine that with the info given.

"Who you gonna call?" <--- see, that there lets anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for 30 years know what it's about.

As for this new movie? *sigh* I may see it, but my expectations are very very low... More evidence that Hollywood is devolving.

I feel ya.

I used to let it get to me, and once posted about it.

Since then I've just learned to consider the source as to whether to just click or wait until someone else does and drops a clue.

It doesn't bother me anymore, and sometimes it's funnier if one reads the subject line and then clicks, not knowing what to expect. It's like foreshadowing the punchline ruins the joke.

Again, I understand your point; I've been where you're at. Occasionally, I'll wait, but not so much anymore.

Typically I would agree with you, but in this case I believe the OP intended the thread title to be something of a brain teaser.

Model,

The subject was sufficiently descriptive. Ghostbusters comes to mind anytime I see or hear "Who you gonna call?" It's quite annoying actually. Given the likely average age of the members of the forum, I suspect the vast majority of us recognize the catch-phrase and think Ghostbusters, too.

Speaking of which, here is the trailer for the original:

It's not descriptive enough for me. I still don't know what it is supposed to mean. Is that a line in that movie?

I didn't see the movie and have no interest in doing so.

Model,

It's part of the theme song by Ray Parker, Jr, which reached number one on a couple of music charts way back when. Ray Parker Jr received an academy award nomination for it, too.

Definitely a _hugely_ recognizable song and catch-phrase and why it's more than descriptive enough to use as a subject. If you have a chance, you really should see Ghostbusters. The original. It's a great movie.

Ghostbusters may not be a masterpiece of cinema but it's still great fun, even now, so many years after its release.

Robert
