    I'll be fine with it as long as there's no women in it.

    I love the first and always thought I liked the second. About a year ago it popped up on Netflix and I stuck it on.

    Well...I think I chuckled at one point.

    I like the second one quite a bit. Never really understood why people hate it so much.

    Yeah I don't think there's anything wrong with the second one, it's decent and has some great moments.

    The third one? Really? It was just pretty unfunny and a waste of Kristen Wiig who is actually funny. It was inoffensive at best but largely forgettable.

    I don't think it's as different to the first two as people like to admit

    Yeah they're both about people who bust ghosts. But the first two are funny, charming and well paced. The third one is none of those things.

    The third one was so disappointing. An incoherent unfunny mess of a film. I had high hopes for it as well given all those involved.

    I can't really critically analyse Ghostbusters 2 because I was about 5 when it came out and I thought it was literally the best thing in the world.

    But kids will watch any old shit, I watched a 5 year old nearly piss their pants watching the Emoji movie all weekend for instance.

    I don't think it's a bad film. It still has the great cast chemistry. The effects were good. Vigo was pretty cool/scary. I liked the statue of liberty bit, as daft as it is. They had to top Stay Puft somehow. I still love the courtroom bit. This for instance, is funnier than anything in the entirety of GB2016:

    "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 the whole time. But I don't blame them. Because one time, I turned into a dog and they helped me. Thank you."

    [the courtroom is in bewildered silence]

    "Egon : Very good, Louis. Short, but pointless."

    I don't know if anyone has watched the Ghostbusters episode of Netlix's The Movies that Made Us (you should, it's very good if you're a fan).

    I think everyone knows that Dan Ackroyd is a bit of a crank in real life, and he says in it that his grandfather used to sit in a barn researching paranormal activity or something, and that when he wrote Ghostbusters he was basically carrying on the family business.

    GB3 looks to have a lot to do with family, and a barn/farm/small town setting. I wonder if they used some of his unused script ideas for this?

    Hopefully they missed out the bits where they were fighting ghosts in space.

    Nothing wrong with Ghostbusters 2. Maybe not quite as good as the first (finale's a bit weak) but it has plenty of good moments (the court scene in particular).

    I think I watched the 2016 one. Can't really remember much of it. Just have a kind of grey smear across my memory where it should be.

    As I said, the third one, forgettable.
  • Deleted user 3 December 2019 17:01:17
    It's not a bad film, not a good one. It's just not funny at all and it tries SO hard to be.

    @JamboWayOh What was forgettable?

    Agree with the general consensus here:
    - Ghostbusters 1: brilliant
    - Ghostbusters 2; not as good as the original, but a good movie and much better than it gets credit for.
    - Ghostbusters 3: Didn't hate it, but utterly forgettable. Can barely recall a single scene in it.

    Also watched the Movies that made us episode on Ghostbusters. Really interesting. Main takeaways from it for me:
    - Dan Akroyd is a bit odd, though not unlikable
    - Bill Murray is an unreliable nutcase
    - Ernie Hudson got royally screwed (and when you watch Ghostbusters 2 he gets fairly short shrift in that as well).

    I'm treating this almost like a game now. I've watched it twice and I'm struggling to remember what the hell it was about.

    They all get together because why not, someone starts leaving machines around the city which summon ghosts? I think he wants to bring the apocalypse for some reason? Cant really remember how he plans to do it. He dies anyway. Then does he possess Chris Hemsworth? And theres a bit where super Chris makes all the police dance in unison?

    Oh and theres the slow mo, I think they were aiming for cool but look like bellends action scene where they're mowing down ghosts left and right.

    That about right?

    The dance number was meant to be in the film but was bad enough to be relegated to the credits. That it appeared at all is probably only because it was in Paul Feig's original email outline, which he definitely didn't make up on the spot: https://wikileaks.org/sony/emails/emailid/64076

    Its got most of the best lines in the movie. 'Jusdishum Restrangement Order' kills me every time.

    And 'And *you* dont want *us* exposing ourselves!'.

    Ha that email is brilliant. She asks for a summary and he sends an incoherent 1000 word ramble.

    Ha ha ha I can't actually believe that email is real. Let alone the fact it was a precursor to a film that cost millions. Bloody hell.

    Honestly I would love to see a breakdown of how and why that movie was made. Considering that it lost around $70 million and was universally derided, there is one hell of a story there.
