Or even something like how heroic the GB's look in their stand off with Gozer? They are framed like its a western. I swear to god when Venkman is calling out to "grab your sticks" as they walk closer to the threat, with the music, and the cutting? Oh man. THAT scene is why I'm a ghostbusters fan. I can't even tell you how excited as a kid, how pumped I got over that scene, It's just great filmmaking. Great use of every discipline. Editing, music, effects, cinematography.As a kid I jumped up and down for it's epicness. I didn't understand why my parents were laughing at it, until I got a bit older and understood the innuendo of that whole bit.
It's what I hope GB2020 will be as well. Something for the kids and a 'hidden' lair for the adults. A seriousness to the absurd.
- - If Sony actually did find a way in the contract of Bill to get him to do a GB movie, why did Sony not do a direct sequel?
- If Ivan is against the reboot why did he and Feig have a creative meeting about it where they both happily agreed it should be made?
- If Feig wanted to obliterate GB84 from existence why did he and Ivan both agreed to have nods and callbacks to it?
