I've never read any of Kelly Thompson's stuff before, but that issue left a good impression.
You're kidding me. I just pulled it out of the long box, since you and I seem to have similar taste most of the time, but it definitely is a stinker.

The art is good and she actually writes the main cast well, but she took the Stay Puft silliness WAY too far. Really lost me on the poop joke, and the spongebob anachronism.

As long it doesn't contain pussy fart jokes.

I know it's a fanfest but it's kinda sad the reboot Ghosbusters is being forgotten. The cast was awesome imo just the script and story are flawed. Weird that it got a Fresh 73% rating on rottentomatoes though, the critics actually like it?

The number 1 thing the reboot will be remembered for is how much hate it got. Never has any movie or show been trashed to that level. If it was not for that it would have just been another movie that some liked and some didn’t. No big deal.

Once awhile passes I think the movie itself will be looked back on more favorably. Like it could have been better but was fine as is. Just should have been a continuation.

To be honest, ya know how we automatically think of stuff during certain times, well whenever something ghost related has come up I’ve actually caught myself thinking about the reboot’s proton packs.

I remember this. The whole reaction, or rather, overreaction, was shameful and horrid.
People were proclaiming that they guy is sexist, racist and who knows what else, while he just didn't want to watch something not to his taste. It was one of the breaking points where I have started to see what really lefties are about.

I'm sure they're all good actors but the entire movie was a literal borefest. I did not chuckle even once. Even OotS had it's "slightly" entertaining moments but this movie? Nope!

kind of the same way. I just couldn't believe there where so many crazy people out there that felt that way about someone NOT wanting to watch a movie, that it made me want to look more into it. I kind of regret it, as I'm NOT A political person at heart. but it is fascinating in kind of a sad way to see what makes one person act like that, and the various simple things it'll take to see someone turn into acting like that.

sometimes all it takes is someone disagreeing with you about a topic, and boom, the crazy switch is flipped. and all the reactions are pretty universal too. like a genetically linked disease.

They're almost undoubtedly going to miss their 2019 date (which was probably made up to begin with), but here's Aykroyd... still saying they're doing Ghostbusters 3:

The reason I actually believe Dan this time about the sequel?

Because Bill Murray was the reason 3 was held up all these years, and now he's lost his veto. Murray can't stop it any more.

I think he didn't like the script for GB3 originally and thought it was bad.

Maybe he had a bad experiences working on these movies and he doesn't want any part of them. Everyone else seems down for making another one except him.

I remember that they had to talk him into doing the Ghostbusters video game years ago.

The "official" story has long been that Murray was one of the people who overreacted to how "bad" Ghostbusters II supposedly was, which made him swear off sequels in general for the longest time, and another Ghostbusters sequel specifically.

The fact that he really hates GBII, and refused to do GBIII, and yet, was okay with doing that abomination reboot, has made me lose a little respect for him, and also question his judgment. We could've had something great, and he screwed it up, and instead we got something terrible, and he endorsed it. Very frustrating.

I don't think he wanted to do the reboot either. If you followed the 'Sony hack' email leaks at the time, there was some suggestion of coercion on Sony's part. There was a vague threat of a lawsuit if Murray didn't play along; like they had some kind of card up there sleeve that they could pay if he caused any trouble.
