That’s not just any roof, they’re on top of the firehouse! At least, the surrounding buildings seem to match, so I’m pretty sure that’s where they are

In response to: We Can Just Put it Right Back in There: A Ghostbusters Reconstruction Review

Comment from: Matthew Ballard [Visitor]  

Excellent job on the review, Paul! Totally agree with you! Although, what this would be like without the alternative takes and TV edits so that it’s just deleted scenes only and the story is more focused rather than playing the same scene over and over again but with alternate takes. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed it. I did mention this in my comment, where I loved to see an alternative cut of the movie that contains all of the deleted scenes put back in with the Fort Detmerring scene in better picture, sound, music and vfx completed. Not as a Director’s Cut as the theatrical cut is Ivan’s cut but I say call it the Writer’s Cut by restoring its original timeline.

In response to: Extreme Halloween - Part 20 ("In Your Dreams")

Comment from: Mal Pracktess [Visitor]

Some fun facts about two versions of the script for this episode:

1) The mailman’s nightmare that kicks off the episode was supposed to have him wrestle with mail that turns into live fish, not being attacked by an envelope monster.

2) Garrett actually had two dreams: the basketball game one where everyone except for him is in a wheelchair and he gets run over and the one where Morpheus is a doctor that tells Garrett that he came up with a cure for his paraplegia: shocking him multiple times with a cattle prod. Worse, Garrett’s mom is there to “help” the doctor.

3) Eduardo was supposed to lose the hair on his head and his goatee hair in his infamous dream where Kylie confesses her love for him, then blows him off and calls him a bald freak. The TV show just has him go partially bald and his hair grows back in the end while the original script implies that it didn’t grow back.

4) There was supposed to be a subplot about Janine hiring a journalist to help The Ghostbusters get good publicity, but it all goes wrong when the homeless shelter collapses.

5) Roland’s dream where he spews water and drowns during a science symposium was also supposed to have him getting flushed down the toilet and an extended sequence where the dream leaves him with a full bladder and desperate to use the bathroom (which he does by peeing in a Thermos when he and Eduardo follow the dream worm creatures to the radio station)…at least the first script did. The second script had it the way the TV version was, where Roland just wakes up and spits out water.

6) Janine’s dream was supposed to be her locked in a cell as it fades into the darkness and she screams that she’s innocent and wants to be let out. The first draft had her as a Catholic schoolgirl while Mopheus was the nun punishing her while the second one just had Morpheus locking Janine in a cell. While I do think the TV version was scary (where Janine is the last person alive in New York and she desperately tries to find signs of human life), the two script versions are better (though I could see the Catholic schoolgirl one getting altered because of censors not wanting any complaints about religious references, even though they got away with showing Jewish culture – and anti-Semitism – on “The True Face of a Monster").

7) One of the scripts (not sure which) revealed that Barry Sherman actually was the traffic report announcer before Morpheus possessed him and turned him into a Howard Stern-esque shock jock who criticizes the news and spouts politically incorrect things.

In response to: The Real Ghostbusters Volumes 6 to 10 Sony 2016 DVD Review

Comment from: KevinStriker [Visitor]  

I grabbed the budget set from Walmart for $20 CAD last October (or maybe that’s the even more budget-er version, with Sony’s 10 DVDs in one keepcase). I’m disappointed but not necessarily surprised they didn’t reauthor Vols. 1-5 DVDs with the titles cards after bothering to do it on 6-10, but oh well.

For $20, I’m happy with 111 episodes that aren’t unwatchable. I’m also not a completionist/purist by any means, just a casual fan when the show ran in re-runs on TeleToon for Halloween.

Comment from: Dan [Visitor]

I can’t believe those scenes were originally in the main story of the film. I would love to see them in their entirety. I wonder if they’d ever release the assembly cut.

In response to: A Convenient Parallel Dimension: How Ghostbusters Slimed Us Forever Book Review

Comment from: Stannis [Visitor]

I thought the book was awful. Sure a couple new things come to light but it’s just so….blah. It’s poorly written. It’s written like a middle of the road like a high-school essay copied from Wiki. The writer 1000% pads out the book with details that do not matter one little bit. Then comes the COVID & Politics. I’m reading a Ghostbusters book, ok? Leave your politics out of it. Yes there were sexist morons back in 2016 but that’s not why most people disliked Answer the Call or it’s trailer. Remaking a bonafide classic movie like Ghostbusters? That’s why people hated it. But Remaking it and it being a complete unfunny, unscary, unthrilling disaster? That should be illegal. People waited, what? 25 years for a new Ghostbusters movie? Constant hype & promises and then tragically Harold Ramis passes away & Sony dances on his grave by releasing that garbage remake. The fact that any fans enjoy that POS just shocks the hell out of me.

It’s also total BS you didn’t get an acknowledgment in the book. You are easily the greatest GB source on the internet & it’s not even close. You must get tired on people stealing your research and scripts & profiting on it.

If anything, and I’ve heard this said elswhere, the 2 latest GB movies show how special Ivan, Harold & Dan were as creative partners. Because 2 very talented filmmakers have tried making a Ghostbusters movie & each kinda failed. Afterlife was fan service shlock with an ending that Harold Ramis would’ve no doubt loathed. It had some moments and was at least better than Answer the Call. But there’s just so much wrong with it. The cameos? The fan service? The lack of comedy? Apparently making Ghostbusters movies is really, really hard. Same with writing “Making of Ghostbusters” books because this is just a complete dud. I’d give it a 5 out of 10.

Comment from: [Member]

Yes, that is the box with Egon’s ashes next to Winston. I would guess that after Callie didn’t want them in the “Is It Ever Too Late” scene, she brought them to Winston.

As I wrote in the article, I’m positive that both end credits scenes were originally meant to be used in the film proper as part of the story.

Comment from: mrmichaelt [Visitor]

Is that the box containing Egon’s ashes (that was seen in the 1 deleted scene on the Blu-ray) next to Winston in his office in the 2nd to last still? I wonder if originally Janine ended up taking Egon with her after that scene and upon returning to New York, went to visit Winston. And what was that part of the end tag took place early to mid-movie originally.

Thanks for the very thorough review of this set. I also want to buy this and other BDs from MonsterlandMedia. May I ask if you know someone else who has reviewed MonsterlandMedia for other cartoon series?

Comment from: Chris Buchner [Visitor]

Just stumbled across this in a Google search. I was amused to see he made use of my original Real Ghostbusters logo I uploaded to DeviantArt a decade ago. Actually, it’s amusing that so many of my logos end up the top search in Google and have appeared on other projects. As good a job as I did at the time, I hope my newer logos soon supplant those! They’re a teensy bit more accurate.

In response to: Eaglemoss Hero Collector Build The Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Model Subscription - Possibly Canceled!!!

Comment from: Michael Pusztay [Visitor]

Yes they did. I’m sorry you didn’t get them. The only way I got them was contacting support every week and tracking my shipments and parts.

Many times they weren’t even going to give me anything. Til I demanded a shipping date and amount that was coming out of my card. I just kept doing it. And I was so close to getting the gurney and light bars. 3 weeks they refused to take my money. I kept calling. They wouldn’t send me anything. And yeah I knew something was up. That was back around June.

Comment from: Michael Pusztay [Visitor]  

I also have been doing this model. The first year was great.
I was lucky enough to get to 33/34 before they took a crap.
So I have all of the car.
I’m currently printing the roof rack at home.
I just have to say overall I can’t believe that a company like this has not had the decency to alert the customers. Die hard fans like us putting a parts model together for 2 years now, faithfully paying each time even for the garbage extras! And we get nothing. No warning no alert no communication.
Absolutely just about the nastiest thing you can do. Leave us in the dark and just remove everything. I’ve never seen something like this before. I’m still in disbelief that a company can do this. There’s nothing to be done. I’m sure somewhere down the line someone will try this again. Maybe they’ll get it right. Til then I’ll be 3d printing my last parts and I’m so sorry for the fans that didn’t get to complete at least the car.

Comment from: MrMichaelT [Visitor]

Here are the locations of the magazine and newspaper covers in Ghostbusters II.

-Chapter 13
–Rudy is reading the Star Saves Mayor variant. The Star Saves Judge was never used in the movie but I think was only on display in the midwest sometime.

-Chapter 16:
–Peter’s apartment desk are just GB1 ones: New York Post, USA Today, and Time
–When Janine is closing up shop for the day, in Peter’s office in the back are the Life, New York Post Saves Judge, Time, and Motor Trend. The rest are from GB1; Time, USA Today, Atlantic Monthly, and Omni.

I’ve been looking at the Stripes soundtrack to look for the apartment arrival scene music but I can’t seem to find it. Are you sure it’s from Stripes?

Nevermind, I found it. From the track V-J-R.

It doesn’t say ‘enidt’ but rather “senior” with the ’s’ being cut off. It’s also smudged. It refers to her grade. Notice it says she’s a 4 year player to her soccer team.

In response to: Unused Ghostbusters Theme Songs

Comment from: Doctor Danno [Visitor]  

I’m really pumped for finding the full version of the first song that’s heard in the 1983 trailer! The way it sounds really makes me believe that it’s a pretty damn awesome song to drive fast to! If I could mod the soundtrack of my racing games, this would be one of many countless songs that I would add into the race bgm!

My wife managed to snag me a copy before they all sold out and I really love the set. It’s disappointing though how much stuff is missing though for GB2 and Afterlife. Where’s the rest of the deleted scenes? And I’d love that three hour cut of Afterlife.
