Hi Steven. What are the issues with the subtitles? At some point, I was planning on using the official subtitles to fix up the Hulu rip subtitles. So, if there are errors in the official subs, please let me know. - Paul

Comment from: Steven Paul Reed [Visitor]  

I paid £49.96p for my copy of the Extreme Ghostbusters: the Complete Series on DVD from a seller called Rarewaves on Amazon.com to be shipped to the UK from the U.S. Amazon store and it arrived last month on Thursday 18th April 2024, the 9 discs don’t sit securely in the disc holders inside the main case, regarding the picture quality: it isn’t razor sharp on the buildings or other objects in the background like in U.S.broadcasts even when I’ve zoomed in on the picture on my Samsung DVD player but the sound is very clear without any glitches however the English SDH subtitles can be hit and miss when you choose have them switched on, I do wonder if Sony will reissue another Extreme Ghostbusters The Complete Series to rectify this edition because it does a bit rushed and the extras are nonexistent, because the Extreme Ghostbusters The Complete Series DVD was released three days before the worldwide theatrical release of Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire in cinemas, don’t get me wrong I’m happy to have all 40 episodes of Extreme Ghostbusters on DVD but I think it could’ve been produced as a little bit more of as a labour of love, in my opinion

Well, if mobile games were designed to last, I certainly would preserve them :-)

As far as I’m aware, most of them would not work if they can’t connect to the home server (such as for content downloads and microtransactions). The only one I’ve actually been able to save is the Playmobil Ghostbusters game, which I think is still available on the Google Play Store. Otherwise, I would upload it to Spook Central.

I wish all mobile games could be saved. I have an old iPod Touch from 11 years ago that has the Beeline game on it. I’m not sure if the game still works, but even if it does, I can’t get it off the iPod Touch to preserve it.

“but most mobile games are disposable and have no lasting relevancy, anyway.”

I’m glad you’re not a preservationist then! 😂

Comment from: Noah [Visitor]

Thank you for bringing this bootleg set to my attention, Paul! I’ve wanted the complete series for over a decade at this point. I own the 10 Sony volumes on both DVD and Digital, but now I finally own the complete series. Thanks to you and TJ.

Bob, happy to hear that Amazon honored the $20 price. Much better than $40. Thanks for confirming that Amazon is selling pressed discs. - Paul

Comment from: Bob [Visitor]

The set was erroneously listed for sale on Amazon for around $20. They have since corrected the error but my purchase at that price was honored. On the set that I received, I can confirm the discs were pressed.

While it’s sad this set is so bare bones, I’m just happy it finally exists. It’d be nice if a boutique label were to give it a nice treatment but I’m not going to hold my breath. But perhaps there will be a renewed appreciation for the show that might make something like that happen.

Comment from: Aggy [Visitor]  

The problem with Frozen Empire is simple: then new actors (Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon,Finn Wolfhard) lack the comedic energy of originlal cast (when they were young/middle aged). The new guys are simply unfunny, Rudd is simply pathetic trying to be funny…

Mckenna Grace plays it all deadly serious and her scenes looks like from totally different movie. But she’s not very good either. She looks like an overgrown child actress, who is too old to play like a liitle innocent girl.

Aykroyd is ok as always, but also a bit too serious.

The best performances here ware from Murray and Kumail Nanjiani. At least they understand IT IS A COMEDY.

The original GHOSTBUSTERS have their own tone. The were never copycats of GOONIES or STAND BY ME. They were never LGBT version of CASPER.

Sorry to hear that, Pedro. I was actually surprised that the theater still had so much stuff. I thought it would have been sold on opening weekend the week before. - Paul

I have to disagree with you on it being like an episode of the animated series. It visually had nothing to do with the animated series. Overall good points though.

• The Mini Pufts are back, but serve no purpose to the story.

They are used the illustrate how the orb is effecting other ghosts

• A common shot in the various trailers and TV spots shows the firehouse freezing over. In some trailers, this shot has the No Ghost logo, lights, and doors on the building. In other trailers, those accoutrements are missing. Matthew Jordan thought the latter version was “unfinished". Well, I can report that in the movie, there is no sign, lights, or doors in that shot. They were added for the trailer (and promotional photo) to deceive people.

Not to deceive but to show it’s the ghostbusters fire house. A for the trailer version if you will.

Found another one in this "Everything in This Place is Haunted" social media ad (3/22/2024). At the start, the shot of Gary saying, “We ain’t afraid of no ghost” was deleted from the film. It would seemingly take place at the end of the scene where he quotes the song, right after he sings a little bit of it.

Thanks for the kind words, Tyler.

Good point about Podcast and Space Camp. I completely forgot about that, but now that you reminded me, it does ring a bell. I removed that part of the review.

Yeah, I think I would much rather have a theatrical animated Real Ghostbusters film.

Hi Paul,

I felt lukewarm about this film. Ghostbusters as it stands now is a almost a complete farcry from what it once was. Although I didn’t really hate this film. It just could have been better.

I will say though, from what I remember, Podcast tells Phoebe that his parents thinks he’s at Space Camp. His parents actually do call and he has to fake that he’s there and plays a recording. They don’t know he’s with the Ghostbusters.

As for Phoebe playing chess in the park (yeah, that was not very bright), that was another callback to Afterlife. I think she was hoping to contact Egon again and when her Ghost Friend showed up, you could see she was disappointed as that is not who she was expecting. That’s what it looked like to me.

On a personal note: thank you for archiving all of this Ghostbusters History. This is one of the first fan sites I ever visited and still continues to be. It is a tremendous resource of information and little known facts about the franchise. Thank you for all that you do. It is very much appreciated sir!

There may be yet another deleted scene in the "Raving" (3/21/2024) spot. I’m 99% positive that the clip at the end of Peter saying, “That was some talent.", is not in the film. I do not remember that at all. Looks like it would have happened at the end after they defeat Garraka - which is not a spoiler :-) - Paul

Could you please direct me to the clip that has a longer version of Paul Rudd singing the Ghostbusters song? It’s not in the movie or the other clips but I saw it somewhere this week. He’s singing the instrumental part “dun nun nun nun na, Duna nuns nun na” and dancing in a goody way.

And I think (to my knowledge) that this is the first time that a Ghostbusters cast member mentioned DVD Beaver anywhere, not just The Tonight Show.

You know, in the Tonight Show interview with Carrie Coon, she mentioned DVD Beaver. And if you all do not know what it is, here’s a link for the Ghostbusters (1984) review on the same site: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film2/DVDReviews46/ghostbusters_blu-ray.htm

Really interesting, and frankly encouraging, how much stuff from the trailers isn’t going to be in the final movie. It’s nice to know that I haven’t seen the majority of the movie already!

I’ll look forward to your review on Monday, by whcih time I’ll have seen it twice!

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.
