Ghostbusters Playing Cards on Kickstarter 3 Days Left

Image

Lots of great stuff has been happening during the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary and one such thing is a Ghostbusters themed set of playing cards that is looking for funding on Kickstarter. The playing cards, which are officially licensed, have already reached their $10,000 goal, but they could go much higher.

The project was created by Erik Dahlman of Albino Dragon, a purveyor of specially themed playing cards. Their previous licenses include The Goonies, The Princess Bride and many others. They have already released designs for many of the card backs which can be found on their Facebook.

If you haven't backed the Kickstarter yet, don't fret as there still are 3 days left to get in on the offer. You can pledge $15 (shipped) for a deck on the Kickstarter page here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/14 ... ying-cards

A Review of Ghostbusters 1 & 2 on Blu-ray

Image

The release of the Ghostbusters 1 & 2 Blu-ray is finally upon us, and will be out in stores tomorrow. We got our copy a few days early so that we could write up a review and check out the special features (and they are special!). We'll be keeping the straight review here, and spoilers, screenshots and more will be posted here.

Lets start with the Ghostbusters 1 Blu-ray.

The Ghostbusters Blu-ray features a lot of carryover from the previous Blu-ray release and even the 1999 DVD release. This Blu-ray is basically a reissue of the previous Blu-ray release. It does have some new content and most of the content from previous releases is included. New special features include a gallery of some of the artwork from the 30th Annivserary traveling art show, alternative takes (from 4:3 TV broadcasts), Ray Parker Jr's music video, a high quality transfer of the Ghostbusters trailer and a round table discussion between Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman. The actual movie transfer appears to be the same as the last 4K Mastered release with only minor changes with sharpness, brightness and coloration. If you already have the most recent Ghostbusters Blu-ray release, this might not be worthwhile to pick up unless you have to see the new special features. What you aren't going to want to miss is the Ghostbusters 2 Blu-ray release however...

Image

The Ghostbusters 2 Blu-ray is amazing to finally have. This Blu-ray was original planned to be released FIVE years ago for the 20th Anniversary of Ghostbusters 2, but for some reason it was not. Lets just say that as paultry as the selection of special features is, they are worth seeing. There are a full six minutes of deleted scenes (spoilers here) that could have changed the whole tone of the movie. There are unfortunately a few good ones we would have liked to have seen included that were not, but perhaps one day. One of the best special features on the Blu-ray (and there are really only 4 in total) was a collection of original Ghostbusters 2 trailers, one of which was very interesting (I'll leave that up to you to discover). As for the actual transfer of the film, since Ghostbusters 2 was filmed on a higher quality film stock, the quality of the transfer is amazing. Colors, levels and everything is exactly as it is intended. Since it is several times the quality and resolution of DVD, there are a TON of new things to discover, and having watched through the film over the weekend... you will discover them!
