Teen Ghostbusters? Interesting how they tie it in directly to the original movie.

Yeah, it's not like the 80's had any movies about nostalgia for when the creators were kids...This looks ok...
BUT - (and not problem exclusive to this movie)
- we are culturally arrested in the nostalgia of things nearly 40 years old. If we were doing this when ghostbusters came out, we wouldn't have ghostbusters!
It was nostalgia for the time period, less about the fruits there of. Like they weren't making sequels or reboots to Shane or The Searchers.
My point is we are arrested into a perpetual nostalgia commodity.
I'm not above this, as a horror fan. 80s were pretty great for that
I actually would like to compare the mentality and community of the 40s and 50s children who wouldn't let go of their toys in the 80s, vs the 80s children who won't share their own toys either in the 2010s and 2020s, but that's a discussion for another time.
Only because George Lucas wasn't allowed to make the Flash Gordon film he wanted to and he made Star Wars insteadI don't know about you, but i haven't watched a bunch of Flash Gordon serials

I wouldn't call it a joke but there was some dark slapstick (for lack of a better term) with one of the Terror Dogs sliding, slipping and tripping while chasing someone.Cautiously excited about this, but I'm a little concerned that the atmosphere they're trying to set with that trailer is a bit overly serious. Was there even a single joke in there?
Hey, pop will eat itself. To me, the issue is less the cycles of such things and more the calculated nature of trying to repurpose IP. Hey, sometimes things based on things yields good art but there are a lot that feel like "we have this thing, I guess we can do something with it" and the end result feeling like a big shrug rather than swinging for the fences. I actually feel like this is a problem we've had for twenty years rather than being a recent thing but it certainly is pronounced now, especially since a certain kind of film is almost invariably the kind to be the top earner. Frankly, the business of film means the big companies are understandably hesitant to take big chances, which is why you are more likely to rely on smaller companies for different films.The boomers were the first generation to have nostalgia apparently. And it's cool (i guess) that gave us star wars and indiana jones. But seems more pointed and endless now. Like in case of star wars, we have nostalgia of nostalgia. I don't know about you, but i haven't watched a bunch of Flash Gordon serials.
Well, there's the one marshmallow turning the other into a smore. Wait, sorry, we were talking about funny, not erotic, right?Cautiously excited about this, but I'm a little concerned that the atmosphere they're trying to set with that trailer is a bit overly serious.

IIRC that got cancelled on account of the movie bombing.I’m kind of neutral on getting a new movie, are they still working on that cartoon they promised back when the lady movie bombed?
I don't want to be TOO negative here, but I... just can't not say:
Awestruck reverence is the absolute antithesis of anything Ghostbusters related.
