    I feel like I'm the only person in the world who doesn't like Ghostbusters. It's not funny and it's not entertaining. I've heard the explanation that it's a "dry comedy", but they don't seem to be into it at all. Not only are the Ghostbusters, in universe, just doing it for the paycheck, I feel like the actors, themselves, don't give a damn either. You're basically a stupid fricker who will lap up anything with good visual effects (ghosts, laser beams, and giant marshmallow men)

      I wouldn't blame anyone for not liking Ghostbusters, especially if they didn't grow up with it. You're right it's not funny, but I do think it's charming and entertaining. (Haven't watched any of the recent movies though)

        The recent movies are not charming or entertaining. You can feel the machinations of the marketing team and executives behind everything. “We need snd asian, and a black girl, and a lesbian romance to make this more acceptable to the youths. Oh and make sure to work in references to the original movie so the die hard fans stick around.” They’re VERY cynical productions.

      That is kind of the joke behind the premise. They basically carry themselves like schlubby bug exterminators, with this being juxtaposed against the whole "they take care of supernatural shit" element.
      >I feel like the actors, themselves, don't give a damn either
      In Bill Murray's case you're right, but Aykroyd and Ramis wrote the movie and essentially viewed the project as their baby. I don't think anyone really gave that much of a shit when making the sequel, though.

      I think dan akroyd genuinelly loves it because the dudes a serious /x/ guy IRL. Hell the best part of the recent movie was that arkroyd wasnt really playing a character but rather basically playing himself in it. And yes i saw the lesbian ghost ghosbusters movie, it wasnt as bad as people make it out to be but slimer shouldve been in it more. Also i liked how they used an actual puppet for him this time

      Janine was great. How many of you will admit to rubbing one out to her?

      Ghostbusters was an absolutely baffling cultural phenomenon. The only thing that surpasses it in longevity, in my mind, is The Flintstones.

      From 1983 until, like, 2007 (not sure, I used to know) there was something on a shelf somewhere with the Ghostbusters logo on it, and it wasn't frickin' comic books or DVDs, I mean like, toothpaste and cereal. Koolaid.

      There was just this strange longevity to what was ostensibly a comedy where Dan Aykroyd gets a blowjob from a ghost.

      Its very strange i only saw the movie when i was like 13 i never drank ecto cooler tho i heard it was available like in the early 2000s so i wouldve lived with it being available

        My philosophy has always been that the 2016 movie was not that bad, and would have done okay enough. Not a cultural phenomenon but not a total bomb either, it just would have been another movie that came and went and grabbed some fans...if Pascal and Feig just shut the frick up. A producer and director do not need to engage fricking random nobodies online. Let the movie speak for itself and shut the frick up. Their antics which amounted to millionaires picking on high schoolers and nobodies in the midwest made the whole thing look awful.

      And that's part of the appeal. They had their own tabletop RPG where the premise was that the Ghostbusters as a service became a global franchise, and you just got hired at a local business. It makes being a wagie and tradecel cool, same reason why kids wish they went to Hogwarts instead of normal school

      >I feel like I'm the only person in the world who doesn't like Ghostbusters.

      Nah you're not alone. And thing about Ghostbusters is that it's NEVER been that big of a franchise to the point you can bring it back repeatedly like Ninja Turtles. I honestly gave the first two movies a chance since supposedly they were the best things. And while the first movie was tolerable the second one was awful.

      And I don't remember the name of the character Bill Murray played but he was an butthole. Horrible character, he's the type of man who WOULD let his friends get killed because he prefers to chase single mother used up shitty pussy. I hated him completely. The other characters? The man with the ice cream hair whose name I forgot? He had no personality outside of being the almost robotic autist. He really felt inhuman I almost expected a plot twist that he was a ghost or an undead because I didn't understand why the other characters were friends with such a robotic unemotional man. Still more likable than Murray's character.

      And Dan Aykroid's character is meant to be the heart of the group but I thought he was just bland.

      And since the point of the franchise is that it's a bunch of middle aged scientists the series holds no allure. You're not going to get any cool characters. It's an extremely niche appeal. So much so that in the sequel movie the intro of the movie had the Ghostbusters being insulted and considered lamer than He man. I'm not joking that's how Ghostbusters 2 begins, with the main characters being insulted and being considered lamer than He Man.

      Anyway this franchise has always been meh collectively. And I don't see why they keep trying to revive it so often. I hope the recent failure of the recent movie puts this series on ice permanently. It's not good enough to deserve to keep going.

        When did he ever put his friends in danger over that?

        Him being a sleaze-ball is part of the shtick because, like the others, he ends up being a hero who faces down a monster to save the city.

      I would say the Ghostbusters hype died around 1990, shorty after the second movie. The cartoon ended around the same time. But I cannot remember seeing any ghostbusters related merch after 90-91. Everything was very much Mario and TMNT at that time.

          Mario stuff was really mainstream huge in 89-90. It had the same thing going as Ghostbuters at the time, tons of related merch. Hi-C flavors, candy, bubble bath, phones, just anything you could slap a Mario on top of.

          Because you completely controlled Mario in games that rewarded you for going everywhere and doing everything. Or rather, making Mario go everywhere and do everything. So in a sense, the love people feel for Mario is the love God feels for humanity.

          Mario's appeal is not really stories and characterization the appeal of Mario is that he's an adventurer basically and in each new game Nintendo invents new varied power ups for Mario to use. That alone impresses audiences in what was at the time a rising new medium of entertainment, video games.

          And video game characters work like that they are neat due to their abilities which you use in their adventures throughout their games. This is one of the reasons gaming series have taken over everything. What do you think sounds cooler to you the characters from Avatar who are limited to one type of element bending OR Mario who can do all the elements and MORE through his power ups? There you go.

            Games largely took over because they are not totally beholden to a middleman. You can make a game and sell it and that's that. It stands on it's own legs.

            To make a show you need a major studio to approve of it, which brings on executives that want to make changes, advertisers who want to make changes, standards and practices who want to make changes, and they might mutate the whole thing into shit, and then the show is cancelled for being shit. Sometimes it is cancelled for not keeping advertisers happy because it does not push cereal or shoes well enough.

            All other media needs to go through corporate suits in a different platform, while game developers can make their shit and peddle it.

                Because on broadcast tv, series are sold to advertisers who choose to pay for them or not. Not to viewers. Viewers are not even considered in the process really. A show lives or dies based on how well it helps advertiser sales.

                And sometimes an advertiser will decide a show does not cater to their demographic the product they are selling caters to so they threaten to pull their money unless something closer to their target is put in that timeslot. It's how successful shows were cancelled anyway and replaced with shittier ones.
