Ghostbusters III - AMAZING

There are no words... just excitement.  Next year, Ghostbusters III will open, with much of its original cast.  I am psyched.

I am excited for a number of reasons, including the following:
  1. The song is coming back.
  2. Bill Murray is one of the funniest actors of all time.
  3. One Word - Slimer
  4. I'm hoping for a giant marshmellow... or maybe they'll upgrade it and they will have dancing dim sum

Bonus - check out this blog dedicated to the movie: http://ghostbustersiii.blogspot.com/

I've posted this elsewhere, but I want to say the same thing here:

I am very fond of Bill Murray as an entertainer (don’t know him as a person), but I believe he and the other people who are on this project are using very poor judgement if this movie will indeed “kill off” Peter Venkman. That’s like chocolate with no sugar. It is bitter, empty, and is about as desirable as a rainy Monday. There’s nothing you can do to spruce it up, it’s still Monday, and it’s still raining. That’s Ghostbusters without Peter Venkman.

I am hoping that the people who are making this movie will take notice of the comments that have been posted about this movie throughout the internet. I wish I could look forward to this movie, I really do. I would be very excited about this, if I thought there were anything worth looking forward to. On the contrary, this sounds sad and depressing.

Here is my request to Bill Murray, Ivan Reitman, and Sony Pictures: Please re-think this. There are some things that aren’t worth chasing for the sake of assuaging personal druthers; especially, where there is little to gain from it. I cannot see how a movie that kills off it’s staple character can be successful or appealing. If the dead Venkman rumors are untrue, please come out and say so. Give people something to get excited about. This is just a movie, of course it is but it would be incorrect to expect the public to point at a movie screen and laugh while a movie production destroys a hold-over from positive childhood memories. Ghostbusters is supposed to be funny. Please, keep it funny and don’t disappoint those who you are asking to buy your product. Afterall, that’s what a movie is. It advertises faith enough in a product to the public, to ask that each person stake an investment in a movie ticket which will help to progress one’s vision, their career, and viability for future projects. I would very much compare that analogy to the tv show “Shark Tank”. I don’t think the people who try to sell their ideas would get very far, if they told the CEO’s that they don’t work for them, so don't care what they think.

Ghostbusters was one of the greatest movies. Ghostbusters 2 wasn't as good, but it had one of the greatest soundtracks of all time.

I hope they don't do anything too crazy with the whole Ghostbusters franchise, (see: "Indiana Jones 4" and the goddamn aliens. What the crap was that?) but I see myself seeing it the first weekend.

I like to think of myself as an optimist... postivie thoughts about the movie (I'll see it even if it is bad).

My philsophy is the following when it comes to epic remakes... get boozy before you go and then if it is bad, at least you were tipsy, if it was good... the booze only enhances the movie.

That being said, I haven't spent too much time investigaiting the movie. I think I want to be suprised.

I can't tell you how excited I am for this movie to come out. I sure hope it lives up to my high expectations because they had a good thing going with the first two and it would be a shame to ruin it with a crappy "three-quel".
