    Ghostbusters II however was worse than Ghostbusteresses, come at me bros
    2 gets a lot of stick, it isn't great granted, but it isn't that bad until the end in truth. A lot of the film it is actually quite good up until you get a walking statue of liberty and it just collapses. Even the terrible mood slime gave us a toaster dancing to Jackie Wilson.....

    Even as bad a 2 was though, You think 2 is worse than that Feig car crash they called Ghostbusters? Really? It's just relentlessly awful throughout. I have never cringed so much watching a film as I did sitting through that.

    I really don't remember 2 being that bad. Maybe there's something wrong with me.

    2 is pretty bad, but I like being in the company of that group of actors so I find it watchable enough.

    Winston's three lines in Ghostbusters II:

    "I go get ghosts, massah?"
    "Mmm I like collard greens n fried chicken"
    "Yo! Green nigga driver, I gotta sit in the back of the bus"

    You basically love racism and hate women if you prefer II over the remake

    I'm not trying to get a rise, that's what I think. A quick google this morning suggests I'm not alone in my opinion.

    A quick Google would suggest that I'm not alone in my opinion that the earth is flat.

    No the first one is a bit shit. It's one of those films people like to reminise about (when half of them weren't even old enough to watch it when it was first released) with rose tinted glasses, the story is weak and really slow, the effects are outrageously awful, the jokes are 80s shit, in fact it's absolute dross now I'm thinking about it more.
    Genuinely one of the most stupid things I've ever read on this forum.

    Obviously your entitled to your opinion. Ghostbusters was a phenomenon back in the day and remains as iconic now (that logo, the theme tune, ecto 1, slimer, the sound of the proto packs etc and endless quotes form the movie) The humour may have aged somewhat, as humour generally does, so the effects, but they were always supposed to be "spooky comical" (I'd argue the proton streams still look wonderful though).
    It was definitely a culmination of great ideas, as many say lightning in a bottle, unfortunately not well repeated in gb2 (though no awful imo) but the original is a classic in its time which is why so many people still care about it.

    Nice to hear the original score used in the gb20 teaser too, an often overlooked part of the original film.

    I might have to download the 2009 game again. I remember it being pretty decent.

    I think I remember enjoying The Real Ghostbusters game on the Spectrum the one time it loaded.

    I remember the C64 one with the logo on the city grid. You'd chase ghosts around and then have to fight Stay Puft, who would trample you in 2 seconds and you'd have to start again.

    Games were brutal back in the day.

    @Dougs That's the one. Still gives me nightmares thinking about wrestling one of those plastic crappy joysticks to try and catch the slimers.

    I had this on the Master System. The day I beat it was the greatest day of my life.

    It is a great game, fairly decent story to.

    I'm currently replaying it myself as I'm revisiting a lot of my old games in VR, it looks fantastic playing in a cinema with a giant screen. Like the 3rd film we never got.
