But they needn't just fade back into the shadows entirely. Ray could be the equivalent of their Alfred, and they could round up Peter and Winston for the "main event" at the end.

Asuming that is the arc leading up to and including #100, I'm sure it'll be him. Unless he's been snatched up by Marvel/DC by then, which I can't believe hasn't happened yet.

Anyways, the 1984/2016 Ghosbusters crossover kicked off last Wednesday. Here's a little writeup and some preview pages: http://www.geeksofdoom.com/2017/03/2...tbusters-101-1

I liked it. I think it's better then GBII, but it does suffer from "Blockbuster Formula" by being too bombastic for it's own good.

The only real fault I can give GB'16 is it's a reboot. I'm not against reboots but this was a very specific situation being in limbo so long. Would have been very easy to at least make it a soft sequel.

Just turn the business over. Movie could have remained basically the same. It could have started with them already having inherited the company trying to figure things out. No need for a "passing the torch" scene.

Judging on its own merits I was worried the humor would be over the top. Being PG-13 helped. I thought it was good except for Kevin. He's not funny just dumb.

I know people liked Kate McKinnon. I like her too but her Holtzmann character seemed a bit forced at times. Maybe that's just me.

Again I wish the equipment was elaborated on but it was nice seeing a prototype before the backpacks. The extra weapons like the proton-glove were kinda cool.

Yeah. I think the whole discussion was literally, "Let's get THOR! And have him act REALLY DUMB! People will laugh hysterically!"

No.

She could have been great in a better Ghostbusters movie. Adlibbing is great, but there actually has to be something on the page, and substance to the character.

Though it all seemed to make them Ghost Annihilators, and not Ghostbusters. They successfully caught a grand total of one ghost in the whole movie, then let it go.

I don't mind if they seem more like "Annihilators". New gadgets and stuff was something I wanted and it was nice to see. They hadn't built the containment unit yet.

The scene with Bill Murray when they let the ghost out was one of my favorites. I don't know if they meant it this way but it was funny that he was trying to disprove them and the ghost attacked him...since in real life he was against doing another movie.

I thought it was funny he called the ghost trap a thermos. It does resemble one.

It's worth a redbox rental if you're a Ghosbusters fan. The cameos were mostly awful though, so don't get excited about seeing the original cast.

I wish they'd do a film based off the game that was supposed to be kind of like the third film since Bill Murry wouldn't return to make it, man did they make it awesome. If they are going with Animation this time, why not? I'm sure the Ghost Busters fandom would love it.
