    All very possible. I still want them to try. If they don't try I get no chance to see another Ghostbusters story, if they do try, sure it's a good chance I'll be disappointed but there's still a chance I won't be. It's not like I'm investing money in it, just my childhood (jk). I think the fandom is still very large though and the 80's nostalgia craze adds to it. Fandom isn't as big as Star Wars, Marvel, DC, or Jurassic Park but I think maybe on the same level or just below Transformers. and Creed worked by continuing the main franchise not starting over with a remake and with turning the main character into a mentor and finding a dynamic new main character.

    As far as Jason Reitman is concerned it's being made and Dan Aykroyd has been dying to make this, Ernie Hudson has announced he's on board. Murray, as always is the question. My guess, Aykroyd will eventually convince him. Even if Murray isn't in it though it's still happening. Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts probably will be back. Would love to see Rick Moranis convinced to come out of retirement. It most likely will focus more on a new group of Ghostbusters any how with Winston, Stanz, and Venkman acting as the mentors. As long as the events of the first two movies have happened and Venkman is in it I'll be happy. Would love it if we found out Egon and Janine had a child and she's intent on carrying on with her father's work.

    I'm cautiously excited. The original movie is in my top 10 favorite movies of all time. I liked the sequel even if I didn't think it was great. The animated "Real Ghostbusters" is a rare 80's cartoon I still find very watchable today. I even hope this movie ends up being titled The Real Ghostbusters. The chance to see Aykroyd as Stanz and Hudson as Winston and I really, really, hope, Murray as Venkman one more time would be great. I don't expect them to be the Ghostbusters in the new movie but the mentors to the new group. Yes the movie could suck, maybe even worse than the 2016, but I'm not finished with this franchise, I want more. Jason Reitman hasn't been too hot lately with his recent movies but Juno was a critics darling and Thank You For Smoking is one truly great movie, one of only a handful of movies made in the 21st century that really made me laugh. Even if he said the Ghostbusters were full of crap, I think his legacy is pulling this movie off.

    Cartoons you'd like to see remade?

    I loved the He-Man remake in 2002. Right now there's a She-Ra reboot on Netflix that many people love. Transformers is another one constantly being remade or continued. There's like 2 or 3 series that were strictly shown in Japan that aside from ignoring the 3 episodes of season 4 directly continue from the G1 series. Then there was Beast Wars, as much as I loved the original cartoon I could never get into it except for a few episodes that directly relate to the the G1 cartoon. Then a bunch of other Transformers series I never got into until Transfrmers: Prime. I liked that one.
  6. Half way through season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Rachel Brosnahan is great and I'm glad she and Aled Borstein got Emmys last year, and both deserve to be nominated again this year, but this season the supporting cast is absolutely killing it!!! Borstein is better this season than last. Kevin Pollack and Caroline Aaron as the in law parents, Miriam's brother and his wife, Miriam's mom Rose (who I was pretty apathetic towards as a character last season I've really grown to love) all have some really funny scenes. But most of all the great Tony Shaloub! He needs to not just be nominated this year but win! Shaloub just can't stop being good in everything he does but he's outdone himself this season with the character of Abe.

    I thought it was pretty awesome actually. Thank goodness they're not remaking Thundercats again in 2019! It would probably be way too influenced by cartoons like Teen Titans Go! and end up just looking ugly and stupid. The Thundercat's Universe has so much potential to explore in better ways before they go all tongue in cheek like that. So glad they're not remaking it right now!!!

    Cartoons you'd like to see remade?

    It's not a cartoon, I just want an actual Muppet Show reboot. Not The Office Muppets from a couple of years ago or even Muppets Tonight from the 90's. I want the original Muppet theater, the "It's Time to Get Things Started" opening, Veterinarian's Hospital, Pigs in Space, Muppet Labs, Scenes From the Ballroom, "Here's a Muppet News Flash!", all of that with modern guest, stars, with some of the newer Muppets like Pepe along the classic ones, and maybe a little bit of updates here and there with the humor and sketches (like some sketches like the Muppet web videos, imagine the Bohemian Rhapsody as one of the opening numbers, maybe a new recurring sketch that's a podcast always devolves into a flame war). Basically a full fledged series of what we got a taste of in the 3rd act of The Muppets 2011 movie. My top ten dream list of very special guest stars on a Muppet Show, celebrities that I think would shine in a reboot of the classic variety series, would be: Michael Keaton Samuel L. Jackson Donald Glover Steve Carrell The Rock Scarlett Johansson Bryan Cranston Aubrey Plaza Wayne Brady Gabriel Iglesias If I can't get that, can I at least please get The Muppet Show seasons 4 & 5 released on DVD or streaming?

    "Candygram?" and southern NJ thinks it's all part of Philadelphia. Philly refuses to take any more than half the state though so NYC has to take north Jersey.

    Star Wars Thread: I KNOW WHAT THAT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jake Lloyd was devastated and quit acting because of the online hate he got. Hayden Christensen didn't fare much better. George Lucas himself went from hero to zero after the prequels. Michael Bay for Transformers. Lucas and Speilberg got serious shit for Indy 4. Shia LeBeouf for Transfomers and Indy. Huge internet shitstorm when Ben Affleck got cast as Batman. Zack Snyder got massive amounts of hate for what he did to DCMU Total Recall was only one movie, never much hype for a sequel, there was alsoa TV series that had no real connection to the movie, so as a franchise fans grumbled about the remake but there was no real outrage because the Arnold movie was stand alone and nothing could threaten that. Robocop had 3 cinematic sequels, only one considered halfway decent, there was 1 season of an underrated live-action TV series, an animated TV series, and 4 horrible made-for-TV Sci-Fi Channel movies (back when it was Sci-Fi). 4 different actors who played Murphy/Robocop before the remake (5 if you count the voice actor from the cartoon). So fans were used to discontinuity with this franchise. I think how big a franchise is also effects fan excitement/backlash. At this point in time, I'd put it something like this: Star Wars >Marvel > DC > Transformers >>> Indiana Jones > Ghostbusters >>>>>>>>>>> Robocop >> Total Recall. With other franchises I didn't mention fitting along there at various points. So, Ghostbusters not as big as the biggest of the big but big enough for a fanbase to be seriously considered. I also think Ghostbusters as a franchise, the two films and The Real Ghostbusters cartoon, while big in the 80's has grown even more popular and beloved by fans in the last decade or so, Robocop and Total Recall too, but not as much. Think of the anger caused when Disney threw out the SW extended universe as canon, imagine if they did that with the movies. "We're starting from scratch, everything that happened in the first 6 movies never happened. Maybe there'd be some sighs of relief making the prequels non-canon but there would be holy hell if SW tried to continue with the original trilogy never happening. That's what they did with Ghostbusters. With the original two movies, the animated series, and to a certain extent the sequel animated series, they had a pretty tight continuity, the close relationship between the cartoon and movies, especially for back in the 80's was kind of unique. Then the reboot comes along and wants to act like everything those characters did, in a very character driven franchise, never happened. Fans got pissed off. Even with Star Trek they knew they had to establish that even if they were rebooting, this was a new timeline being created, the original still existed, and possibly would be revisited at some point. They knew there would be Hell to pay if they didn't. I also feel that when the incel-manbaby-whiners catch even a whiff of fandom discord that they can use to further any of their causes they leap on the hate bandwagon whether they are/were a fan or not, just to stir up more shit and unfortunately sometimes some fans are stupid enough or blind enough in their rage to swallow their shit. So, no doubt that female/minority actors, will have to deal with the misogynist/bigoted/racist/hateful remarks in addition to normal fan rage when something sets the internet on fire, but most of the time it's more about it being more fuel for the fire because of who they are (which sucks and needs to change!) not that they ignited it for who they are. Agree here, however I do think Sony hoped it would and actively pursued/encouraged it. citation: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/tom-rothman-spider-man-plans-904849 For the record I'm fine with people loving or hating Star Wars, Ghostbusters, etc. I'm going to speak my mind, criticize or defend something, debate about it, but my opinions will be based on the work-in-question's merit, not some stupid prejudices or outside agendas. Sometimes like with Ghostbusters, the franchise as a whole will have an effect (good or bad) on my opinion of an individual work within it, but it won't be the deciding factor. I can say that about most franchises, Star Wars, Marvel, DC, The Matrix, Transformers, etc. I'll state my case though and why I think it's relevant. I won't like something because I "should" and I won't hate something because I "should". I also don't believe any franchise can truly ever die, but Star Wars is the furthest ever from even being thought that it might be dying out. I do believe that bots got into the mix to stir up trouble with the SW metrics boosting the manbabies' unfavorable ratings. It will take a hell of a lot more to kill SW than TLJ and Solo. I love the first GB movie, I think it's one of the greatest films of all time. I thought the sequel was a good movie, but not great. I think the "real" GB animated series is great too and an important part of the franchise. I think I need to look more into that sequel extreme GB animated series. Though things from the 90's that are titled "extreme" irk me. The GB reboot was garbage to me.
  12. In the GotG movies there's been a significant Celestial presence with Knowhere and Ego. If the Celestials are around and the MCU now own the rights to Galactus, I see that as a great in...Galactus as the one who tries to keep them in check, maybe he was the one that severed the head that eventually became Knowhere. I don't know what Gunn's plan for GotG 3 was but without him they could still make a movie featuring the GotG and FF against Galactus (Starlord being half Celestial and Ego's destruction being what draws him) and it would still seem a natural outgrowth of the first two movies. Also, how has no one referenced this yet?

    U.S. Politics: Phantom of the Emergency

    Anyone ever notice when people try to impersonate Trump it's usually a slightly modified Carl the groundskeeper from Caddyshack? "We're gonna build a wall, it's going to be the greatest wall..." "What an incredible Cinderella story, this unknown, comes out to lead the pack..."

    I was just watching The Daily Show and the found a a video from 2004 of Trump giving a commencement speech. This is beyond The Onion parody territory except that it's completely real, it's just...holy shit.

    U.S. Politics: Phantom of the Emergency

    If anyone is interested, the local paper published my thoughts on immigration and the wall written from the point of view of the son of an immigrant. They took a free hand in editing my original piece of course, and most of what they cut out I pretty much agree with, I got pretty verbose, though I do wish they had not cut out the part where I mentioned border officials putting people in camps, separating families and allowing children to die. If you do read it, thank you, I appreciate it.
