Much better idea.

If you're gonna revive a 30 year old property and shoot for a nostalgia play, remember that the people you're targeting are in their mid/late 30s now and have kids of their own. So give them a way to get THEIR kids involved with them.

This is how this sort of thing should be done. You work WITH the universe - you don't just set a bomb off in the middle of it and still try to trade on its name.

Well said. This, while common sense should be PSA in Hollywood.

In the end, it's all common sense.
  1. Keep politics out of your movies, unless it's essential to the plot.
  2. Use intelligent, sensible transitions when steering franchises though new characters and actors.
  3. Don't shit on large percentages of your target audience.
  4. Don't create too many "You've got to be fucking kidding me" moments, no matter how absurd the movie.


None of that should be controversial, yet Hollywood can't seem to grasp it.

Or you could just ignore the fact that 2/3 or so of the adults who loved ghostbusters as a kid were little boys, GIRLPWR!!! the shit out of it and then castigate the people who aren't super stoked about it as toxic chauvinists.

I'm still not sure what compels someone to revive a franchise and immediately set about antagonizing the people that gave a shit about that franchise to begin with.

Next up "Twilight: The Reckoning" and 15 seconds into the trailer you have Wesley Snipes show up as Blade and the rest of the movie is him just cutting vampires apart and beating up emo kids. Seems a flawed strategy.

Was curious, so looked up the movie on IMDB.

It shows Murray, Akroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and Ernie Hudson in it.


Hopefully it’s more than just cameos.
