Am I the only person who thought the dickless EPA guy in the first movie got a bad rap? If you've got some yahoos running around with particle accelerators strapped to their backs, you'd think they'd need some oversight.

SineSwiper: Disagree. Only the last one sucked. Matrix Reloaded is still one of the best action movies ever made, and it has the best car chase scene in the history of film.


Too bad they forgot how to direct between the first and the second movie. And the rave scene is reason enough to never watch the second movie. Ever.

Yes, you are the only person who thought that.

God, he's looking old.

I really wish they'd leave Ghostbusters alone. It was classic 80s and should remain there. Why not just completely fark it up and have one direction do the music.

Nabb1: Me neither, and "2" was plain awful.


After several re-watches, 2 actually does have some redeeming qualities.

But it's no original Ghostbusters, that's for sure.

Lumbar Puncture: Apos: Agreed. It might have been a magnificent trilogy if the Wachowskis had focused more on a coherent narrative and less on visual effects and quasi-philosophical babble.

Lindelof has that genre covered now, no more need for the Wachowskis.


*Shudder* I know.....I watched Prometheus.

Put me down as supporting Deathproof as a better car chase than Matrix Reloaded...

My GB III pitch:

Venkman, thru a contrived trap gone wrong, is pulled into Hell, where he promptly starts taking over, and the Devil is repentant of taking him, a la "the ransom of red chief". Stanz and Spengler have been at odds for years since the government seized all control of the ghost technology. Stanz has been working in secret on the tech for the government as a weapon and spy tool. Spengler has been left out on the fringe starving. When the two hear about Venkman's situation, they bury their differences and get the old band back together (with a now-grown-up Oscar) for a rescue. Only Venkman likes things where he is. He'll need to be coaxed back by Dana.

Knight of the Woeful Countenance: AdolfOliverPanties: spman: http://superofficialnews.com/bill-murray-signs-on-for-ghostbusters-3/

But, it isn't funny. It is written as a straightforward news story without any real satire.

That is really farking stupid.

I once worked with a pair of morons that thought it would be funny to announce that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake died in a car crash back in 2001. Real funny until CNN started calling asking what was up...

/moral of the story is, stupid people who think they're funny usually aren't and push it too far.


See what I get out of that is that CNN used to have fact-checkers. Whaddyaknow.

I've got a friend on the "inside" in LA.
She told me that at first Bill was for doing the movie as long as they did it his way.
He wanted the third movie to be about the time the original three members of the Ghostbusters met in college and got interested in paranormal activity due to some weird stuff happening on campus.
The thing was, Bill wanted himself and his cohorts to play themselves in college, no younger actors, no special effects to de age them...it was supposed to be a joke against Hollywood for taking old material and trying to put it into a new package...all very meta humour.
The execs didn't go for it so Bill walked.
The only reason I know this is because my friend on the inside said that if I told anyone, she was sure no one would believe me.
So...maybe we need to brace ourselves for a Ghostbusters prequel...

My only real concern is the setting. New York has changed in 30 years, will a new Ghostbusters movie have the same feel as the old one? Look at Law and Order for example, from the first episodes to the last ones the city isn't the same place.

It's not like it'd be hard for Venkman. Spend a good hour or two spurning Stantz, maybe have Venkman's son join the team, then suring the final battle, he suits up and saves everyone's asses.

I'd zee it.

Except he didn't seem concerned about the particle accelerators. His hissy fit was over the box in the basement that was consuming so much power with no noticeable byproducts.

Dickless allowed the minor issues to completely blind him to the major issues.


Which is why he is such a believable character as an EPA employee.
