Hi Gianni

Yeah, I'd love to get a copy of the "GB3 Project" VHS & DVD. It sounds interesting.

It’s nice that TJ is planning a new site for his custom media to come back. Also, the 1 GB size for each episode (approximately, I guess) is odd, cuz my episode package has an episode size approximate of 100 MB for each one. Fixing the frame rate makes each ep less than a gigabyte, also in estimation. This’ll be good for making DVD’s of my own. (Insert winky face)

I had something long in development for VG, which I dubbed the “GB3 Project”. The concept itself is somethin’ you can guess from a mile away. Its VHS is complete yet I’m almost done on the DVD (subtitles are a pain to make). Maybe I’ll mail ya (Paul of course) a VHS & DVD copy if interest is strong.

Comment from: TJ Monsterlandmedia [Visitor]

I just finished reading the full review of Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Nice review.

I would also like to clarify that what I do is a service. I do not make anything off the recording themselves. NO PROFITS ARE MADE ON THE DVDS/BLU-RAYS CONTENT! ALL FUNDS MADE ON THESE DVD'S/BLU-RAYS ARE ONLY USED FOR MAINTAINING OUR EQUIPMENT: DISCS, PAPER SLEEVES, TRAVEL TO THE POST OFFICE, PACKING & OUR TIME AND EFFORT TO CREATE THE DVD'S/BLU-RAYS. THIS IS COLLECTOR TO COLLECTOR, NONPROFIT, NONCOMMERCIAL, PRIVATE TRADES & TRANSFERS AS PER CUSTOMER ORDER. Which you can read more when my website launches.

After reading the review and comments - I realized that this set is too new for my shop. All of the other sets in my shop are retro sets mainly from the 80s and 90s - this set doesn’t fit that. I really appreciate you bringing this to my attention in your review but it will no longer be available in my store as a result.

Thanks,
TJ

Comment from: BrySkye [Visitor]

Sorry to trouble you, it was a bit of a random surprise how I ended up spotting that recent article about a blu-ray bootleg of my Youtube video. I would, however, like to request if a few clarifications could be made to the review.

Firstly, and most importantly, I'd appreciate it if it would be possible to clarify that I have absolutely no involvement in the production, distribution and most importantly any kind of financial connection with such a blu-ray. I had no idea it even existed, let alone was being sold. It's a strange feeling seeing it to be honest, but I've decided to take that as a compliment to the overall quality.

That said, I feel it's especially important to clarify this as Sony have previously blocked the video worldwide on copyright grounds for the soundtrack. That's partly why there's some new sound issues, as these sections had to be muted to get the video view-able at all, and Youtube's re-processing in those circumstances isn't ideal. But also that the games original mixing just wasn't very good in several places!

(This also doesn't resolve the inevitable Content ID claims over video content, but at least these only claim ad revenue, rather than try to block it outright) So I really don't want anyone to think I'm in any way associated with any kind of selling of the 'movie'.

Secondly, as an additional insight about the relocated scene, it was something I had thought over a lot. The original scene always felt out of place. The gang going from "The little spud will head to its original manifestation point, let's go!", to Peter's little questioning of the Rookies role and title, back to back to climbing into the Ecto-1 with a purpose. It really slowed to pacing all of a sudden and it didn't really seem like something Peter would actually do, unless he was performing to someone outside of the team (and the Rookie wasn't important enough for that). In the 'normal' cut I made, which is nearly a full half-hour shorter, the scene was removed completely. I put it back into the extended one, but the relocation was done under the logic that Peter would be grumpy after seeing the Rookie use some of the newest toys, and working so well, as well as his advancements being shunned by Ilyssa. It's clunky and a bit out of place, it just felt a bit *less* out of place compared to the original.

So it was a personnel choice, and not one done lightly. It's not going to work for everyone, but I can at least say it wasn't done in error.

Cheers,
-Bry

I was lucky enough to work at GameStop when that was sent out! I think I sent the entire box to Doreen at some point, minus the lanyard that was included, which I still have.

The crowd tech demo was really interesting to see, especially considering that there are NO crowds in the game! Maybe this would have just been in the parade level?

Comment from: pferreira [Visitor]

The 2016 movie was an insult to the fans. Putting aside the feminist propaganda that Paul Feig was going after what we all wanted was a third movie. If Sony had got their act together they could have got it out back in 2008 or 2009. Had we had a third movie a female lead movie spin-off would of been fine if moronic. What we got was both moronic and a travesty.

Unfortunately GB Fans.com saw fit to ban me because I didn't have anything good to say about it. I guess the mods there were toeing the company line as well?

Dan can say I live in a basement all he likes (wish I had one), the point is it was everything Ghostbusters SHOULDN'T have been.

In response to: Things I Dislike About Ghostbusters II

Comment from: Malcolm [Visitor]

Surely the point of walking Miss Liberty around the streets was to stoke up a positive vibe throughout the city. Not just for the crows around the museum. The ones around the museum may not have been enough to counteract the negativity of the mood slime, they needed as much of the city as possible.

I disagree with the slime. As a kid I loved the slime aspect of GB, I remember getting a ectoplasm bubble bath with onion-head on the top. Seeing all that mood slime when I saw GB2 that looked exactly like my old bubble bath was pretty cool. I thought the mood slime idea was pretty neat overall. The flow in the old subway was cool.

The main thing I never liked about GB2 was that it didn't continue like I thought. They weren't heroes. Everyone hated them. The change of the Ectomobile and as you say the sign. All sequels seem to undo the previous film and start again.

I would have liked to have seen more busting. The court scene was one of the best bits of the movie. Didn't see enough busting in the first so it was cool to finally see some more with even better effects!

As he doesn't deliver to the UK, any idea where I can get hold of good quality versions of these eps so I can knock a collection together for myself?

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

Comment from: [Member]

I hear you loud and clear, Brendan.

It makes me sick to hear Dan (and Al Roker) spew the venomous lies just because Sony doesn't want to admit that the film has a lot of problems, none of which have to do with the gender of the cast.

They like to tow the company line and say that "fanboys" hated it, but what about all of the fanGIRLS who hated it, too? The woman who works at my pharmacy, who's in her 50s or 60s and isn't a "Ghosthead", saw my No Ghost Logo hat and told me that she didn't like the female Ghostbusters movie. I guess Sony doesn't want us to know that females like her, and the rest who dislike the film, even exist.

What Sony (and Dan) doesn't realize is that continuing to spew the venomous lies, and insulting their fanbase, actually make THEM look bad. And in turn, makes the film look even worse.

Thank you, This was a fantastic watch.

Really a shame how Dan talks down to the fans because we hated the 2016 propaganda film.

No I don't hate a female ghostbuster!!

I do hate feminist propaganda, poor writing, and reboots. I have no problem with a female Ghostbuster but if "I'm a woman" is all you bring to the table.. then see yourself out the nearest exit.

attacking the fans was a disgraceful thing by Dan.

All of the hack actors and their wimpy director attacked the fans and still do to this day and they wonder why we hate it.

I would have still hated it even if it was an all male cast..

Besides that bothering me, the Reels video was great.
Learned something new about the reverse filming on the library ghost. Never noticed it before.

Thank you, sorry for the rant... just gets to me.

I was amazed to see this item pop up on Etsy back in November last year, so I HAD to buy it. The first time I saw it had the crappy Toon Disney footage, but JT did change it to Hulu rips later on (like the copies you and I got). The casing is inconsistent, cause mine was one you'd see on a 4-disc case, with the discs on the flap. Removing the flap and putting the discs in the slots fixed the problem. I also replaced the artwork with a design I edited a while back. (Link: https://imgur.com/XqqKjfG) I was very satisfied although I do want Sony to finally give an official release.

"As noted in the call sheet below, this scene was filmed on Monday December 5, 1998."

I know the year is a typo. I wanted to point out "1988" instead of "1998." When I'm "creatively writing" for Ecto-Containment I correct myself more than once for whatever the reason.

In response to: Paul's Ghostbusters II Alternate Scenes Theory

Comment from: Jay [Visitor]  

I too have seen the Slimer flyby...UK first theatrical showing was my first viewing of GB2....however...I have a strong feeling that it was in the TV version shown in the UK a few years later as well, as I taped it from TV and that would the version I saw most often. I think it was on ITV.

I also wish I could get a disc or digital version of the UK TV edit of GBI I grew up with (neckless here turned off the containment grid, it’s true your honour, this man has no neck, no get the sailor laid joke.) as those child friendly edits are a much better way to (a) experience nostalgia and (b) introduce to our kids. xD
There’s also a (c) they fill a 4:3 iPad screen nicer.
