Ghostbusters: Behind Closed Doors Review - THE UPDATED EXTENDED CUT!

 By Paul Rudoff on Aug. 31, 2019 at 5:43 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Ghostbusters 2, Reviews & Merch

On Sunday, June 2, 2019, the Reelz channel premiered their two-hour special Ghostbusters: Behind Closed Doors. Since it's not being shown anymore, I thought I'd write up a review to show you what it's all about. (NOTE: This is an updated version of my original review that was written on June 4, 2019 - two days after the premiere of the special.)

Extreme Ghostbusters: The Complete Series Bootleg Blu-ray Set Review

 By Paul Rudoff on Aug. 26, 2019 at 12:00 PM , Categories: Extreme Ghostbusters, Home Video

I don't normally support bootlegs or counterfeits, but in this case, Sony's given me no choice because they obviously have no interest in putting Extreme Ghostbusters out officially on disc here in the U.S., even though they know that the fans want it.  Since Sony doesn't want to make money off this series, someone had to come forth to fill the hole that Sony is leaving open. Read on to find out more...

Revenge of Shot on Site Summer - Ghostbusters II Locations, Part 6

 By Paul Rudoff on Aug. 25, 2019 at 12:00 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 2, Filming Locations , Tags:

In honor of the respective 35th & 30th anniversaries of the original Ghostbusters movies, every Sunday - henceforth dubbed Shot on Site Sundays - at Noon (Eastern) for the next several weeks (schedule here), I will go through the original two movies from start to finish, showing and telling you where everything was filmed in Manhattan, New York and Los Angeles, California. This will be part filming locations rundown, part behind the scenes exploration, and part "Making Ghostbusters". All parts are available here in reverse order: Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. I will be utilizing the home video cuts of both movies, which can be found on the 2014 Blu-ray Double Feature, as well as the recently-released 5-Disc 4K UHD & Blu-ray with Bonus Disc Set. With that in mind, SPOILER WARNING if you read any further... though I suspect that if you're at Spook Central, you've already seen both movies a million times over.

The majority of real world New York photos were taken by Alex Newborn in July 2014 and Lars Karlsen in July 2018, and are being used with permission. The enlargements for these photos, and for the movie framegrabs, can be found on the various Filming Locations pages elsewhere on Spook Central. Other images are credited where known. Locations were identified by various people and sources over the past 35 years. Those that are not common knowledge are credited on the specific Filming Locations pages (see previous link). The title graphic seen at the top was created by Lars Karlsen, based on an idea by Paul Rudoff. It can be enlarged for a better look at its beauty. Now that that's out of the way, we've got movie sign...

Alessi Brothers Savin' The Day CDs Review

 By Paul Rudoff on Aug. 19, 2019 at 12:00 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Music

If you listened to the new Ghostbusters fan commentary on the Ghostbusters 1&2 4K UHD & Blu-Ray 5-disc set that was released back in June, you may have heard one of the participants mention that Alessi released an album called Every Version There Is... Or Ever Was containing a variety of edits of their hit "Savin' the Day". That album, which is available on the official Alessi Brothers website, was released around June 11, 2016 (as per this Proton Charging Twitter post). I just found out about it from the commentary, and bought myself a copy. If you'd like to know what it's all about, read on...
