The more i see of this the more i am thinking,
30 years of waiting for this, my childhood dream of another final run and its gonna be jumanji with ghosts and crazy old dan aykroyd as the robin williams lost in the jungle guy....................guaranteed,
this is definitely going to lack the intellectual dry comedy of the first film and sort of in the second film, overall i think its a really bad plot idea and due to the geriatric level of the originals i think they have no choice unfortunately to do it this way, too little too late, l am going in with extreme low expectations at this point.
There is zero chance it has the same "flavor" as the original two even remotely.
Jumanji with ghosts boys and girls , you know it to be true, search your feelings.
you mean, Goosebumps with proton packs. crazy old guy + goofy kids tangled up in a hot monster pursuit.
i feel you as that's my fear too (if it were in the wrong hands).. however on the other hand that's not Jason's filmmaking style..so im not sure that's the film we're getting. he doesnt make studio trash like that, nor has a record of it. to be quite fair, this has really been the ONLY SCENE leaked, and could only be just a stand alone sequence where they do 'ghostbusting,' while it cuts back and forth to the other guys doing the 'real stuff'..via Louis in GB2.
I think the reservation some people are having is the hope of keeping the look/feel of Ghostbusters as a characterization, by that i dont mean the personalities of Venkman, etc.. what i mean is going from kooky scientists to iGen school kids is a bit of big jump as far as feel. Part of the humor is the Ghostbusters are supposed to be akin to a real-world dirty job, 'a ghost janitor/plumber/garbage man', they treat Ghostbusting like cleaning out a toilet and con people on the bill when the job's done, they're shlubs..i dont know the 'new' characters yet, but from what i seen they look very 'teen disney.'
I dont think it's the fact its 'unrealistic'..but it's surely a big jump from the old characterization. I'm sure Jason has written up something, with the Dan, Ivan, and Co, that'll make sense to us all in the end.
personally, i'l reserve full judgement until i see a trailer, i know practically nothing to really make a full judge on it.. for now i'm just observing/speculating.
