I seem someone watched Ghostbusters last week, on AMC with Movie Notes.

Eddie Murphy would have totally farked it all up. And this was back when he was funny. Michael Keaton would have been interesting. He turned it down for what, Mr. Mom? Then we would have been stuck doing the abysmal Ghostbusters 2 instead of Batman.

Mugato: Eddie Murphy would have totally farked it all up. And this was back when he was funny. Michael Keaton would have been interesting. He turned it down for what, Mr. Mom? Then we would have been stuck doing the abysmal Ghostbusters 2 instead of Batman.


"Mr. Mom" and "Gung Ho" don't have the staying power of "Ghostbusters," but they're good movies in their own right. Definitely of their era, though.

/I've often wondered what the hell kind of ultra-premium tuna Schooner was selling, that they could drop the price by 50 cents a can in the mid '80s and still remain in business.

I always thought the point was that the executives were far out of touch with reality and were charging exorbitant prices for cut-rate merchandise.

Could be. You're probably right. A third alternative: screenwriters don't know shiat about the real world.

Any or all of the above?

It was a special kind where they fed the mayonnaise to the tuna while they were still alive, so you didn't have to add it after.

Hey, if you don't get a lump in your throat when the Statue of Liberty is marching down Broadway to the
tune of YOUR LOVE IS LIFTING MY HIGHER, then you have no music in your soul.  Or are not a New
Yorker.

It is significantly inferior to the original, to be sure, but it isn't completely horrible.

i have no problem with Ghostbusters II.

ghostbusters 2 is one of those sequels that is sillier and funnier than the original, but not as good a movie.  personally my favorite part is in the subway tunnel where they do the echo joke.  "echo!"  "wiiiiiiiiiiinstooooooooooon"
 
2014-06-11 01:35:41 PM  
There was more than one Ecto-1.  I used to ride by a place that had two or three of them in Santa Monica.  Now it looks like they are down to one:

Ah yeah, in 2008 they had two at least:

You might want to reevaluate that statement. What humor can be found in GB2 was lame.

Biggest menial trivia about that film, the actor playing gozer couldn't speak English clearly so they had to hire someone and that person was the same woman that played Bull Shannon's mom on night court...

Venkman: So, Johnny; where you from?

Venkman's photo shoot with Viggo (shamelessly stolen for the ...second? Austin Powers movie). Louis and Janine making out on the couch (and her telling Dana she fed her infant son a French bread pizza).

"Viggy, Viggy, Viggy... You have been a bad monkey!"

// GB2 is a fine film, is my point
// much like pretty much every originally-unplanned sequel, inferior to the "lightning in a bottle" original

I actually like Ghostbusters II, but then, the first time I saw it was on a date with my high school sweetheart at a drive-in theater, in my big boat of a car... So I missed some of the movie the first time because I was focused on her. It was a lovely date.

I bought the videocassette the moment it was available, though, and have had it in my video library in one form or another ever since.

For me, it's wrapped in a lot of nostalgia and exceptionally fond memories. The fact that I reunited with her 20 years later, and that we're together now? That just makes it sweeter.

Besides, it does have some great elements to it. Vigo's a good villain. The gags are pretty good throughout. Winston gets an expanded role. Janine is hot!  And the movie leads up to the recent video game quite well, enriching the mythology and making for a nice trilogy.

I agree. I also didn't catch that play on words until the last time I watched the movie. I like finding new things when I watch/read something again.

I think Annie Potts had the funniest line in the original. "I've quit better jobs than this."

Cork on Fork: Generally you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance.


A line which is surprisingly useful in real life.

I loved the courtroom scene in GB2.

If nothing more than the way the streams seemed to wrap around the ghosts and lasso them.  It looked more like the cartoon and less like the original.

Although I hated how they changed Janine to the cartoon.

And I didn't like them shoe-horning Lewis in.  I liked the character but there was no reason for him to be in the movie.

Not a CSB. When I was 8 (in 1985, sheesh) our soccer team was new to the league. The coaches let us pick our name.
We decided on Ghostbusters. Best uniforms in the league. Black with a white Ghostbusters logo.

/And we kicked ass.

Your Honor, ladies and gentleman of the audience, I don't think it's fair to call my clients frauds. Sure, the blackout was a big problem for everybody. I was trapped in an elevator for two hours and I had to make do the whole time. But I don't blame them. Because one time, I turned into a dog and they helped me. Thank you.

Very good, Louis. Short, but pointless

He had a small purpose, IIRC.  He was their accountant, so it gave them a reason to have him around...

OK, he was a bit shoe-horned, but I'll take Rick Moranis shoe-horned into most movies without complaint.

ghostbusters 2 is like back to the future 3.

it has moments, but is mostly a pile of best-forgotten shiat.
