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.

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?

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.

Comment from: Gianni Belotti [Visitor]

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.

Fellow Ghosthead here. I never would have guessed that the birthday party scene was filmed in the Captain's quarters of Fire Station 23 in Los Angeles. Talk about using a filming location to its full potential!

In response to: Ghostbusters 1 & 2 Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD & Blu-Ray SteelBook 2019 Review

Comment from: [Member]

Hi NJ

Unfortunately, I don't know if the new bonus features will appear on any digital steaming sites. I would suspect "no", as Sony probably isn't imnterested in updating the movie content there.

Thanks for telling me about the Back to the Future Trilogy steelbook with the page inside to allow four discs without overlap or stacking. I found a photo of it on this site, and I can see that it has a dual-sided page inside. So there's one disc on the inside front cover, one disc on the inside back cover, and a disc on each side of the middle page - thus giving four discs. That's a great way to configure the steelbook. Of course, that wouldn't help for this Ghostbusters set since there's five discs :-(

Comment from: NJ [Visitor]

Would you know if the new bonus features will appear on a digital steaming site, like Movies Anywhere, iTunes, or Vudu? I already bought the Digibook last year, and without a 4K home theater, I have no incentive to upgrade the movies to 4K yet.

Also, while you've never found a Steelbook with enough "pages" to carry multiple discs without stacking, Target's 2015 Steelbook for the "Back to the Future" Trilogy has enough "pages" to safely hold four discs.

In response to: Ghostbusters 1 & 2 Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD & Blu-Ray SteelBook 2019 Review

Comment from: Gianni Belotti [Visitor]

When I first got it from Amazon, the case was pretty effed up. Luckily we were able to tell Amazon about the damage and they sent a replacement with MUCH better condition. Had to give away the spare digital code and sell my old GB1/GB2 Blu-rays though.

Anyway, this was my most anticipated Ghostbusters release ever since the concept of the GB2 Blu-ray. Speaking of GB2, the unfinished teaser is awesome. I didn't really know what counted as unfinished outside of the courtroom footage having no proton streams. Also, someone could use the actual November 1988 Cosmopolitan cover to fix the blurred version via editing.

It is REALLY worth seeing the promo pilot in restored condition AND watchable on some form. Also I gotta give props for the ShoWest GB1 footage for the fact that it's interesting to compare the movie's earlier state to the final. So of course, odd lighting and B&W shots are expected. GOD I LOVE THAT PROTOTYPE PROTON PACK NOISE! Yes, the start-up sound's in the VFX comparison of the initial Slimer encounter, but the prototype beam sound is also cool! (I do remember hearing that beam sound during the crossing-the-streams scene but I still want a lossless copy) Lots of obvious noise reduction though.

Hey, Paul! Thanks for the review, I actually loved it. I have the Steelbook, and it IS amazing! To me, the best parts for the bonus disc, besides the the trailers and the Ray Parker Jr. "Ghostbusters" Music Video are:

The 1984 ShoWest Exhibition Reel for GB1
The Unfinished GB2 Teaser Trailer
RGB Pitch Pilot Fan Remaster

And that's all. Thanks, BTW. :D
