Sounds like Danny's not a Paul fan so much these days...

because Feig made a shoddy movie that put its priorities on showing a loser dean flipping the bird at the leads for what felt like 30 seconds!

Whoops.

ETA: How do you feel about him now, Paul?

eheheheheh...

post #1755 of 2000
I still like this movie.
post #1756 of 2000

So they knew the movie was a piece of shit (30-40 million dollars in re shoots? Yikes.) and yet they still played up the "If you hate this movie, you're a sexist!" angle.

 

That makes sense because if history has shown us anything, it's that attacking the fan base for a property always yields big dollars at the box office.

Touche.

Aykroyd must not have seen the last half hour.
post #1760 of 2000

If he had, we would've lost him in 2016, too.

post #1761 of 2000

Oh, he saw it. And Aykroyd's the guy who directed Nothing But Trouble.

post #1762 of 2000

I can see why Aykroyd is bitter. Any new Ghostbusters film should've done much better at the box office. Hell, even Tron 2 made a ton more. 

 

Curious his comment that Paul Feig isn't allowed on the Sony lot. Back to Fox for him I guess.

Meh. He helped sell a false narrative and exploited an important social movement to save face. Call it karma.

post #1764 of 2000

So how much longer until Sony decides to reboot this again?

We've had three incarnations of Spider-Man in fifteen years, so...soon?

post #1766 of 2000

I assume they'll go the sequel reboot route this time ala Jurassic World, Force Awakens, Blade Runner 2049 etc 

post #1767 of 2000
I think it's dead. Maybe not the worst thing. It wasn't the mythology that connected in 84, it was the characters.

One can hope. I mentioned this much earlier in the thread but Ghostbusters is an interesting franchise in the sense that it started as a film but has fared much better in other mediums (video games, comic books, cartoons, toys, etc.).

 

An animated series in the vein of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is probably its best shot at this point.

post #1769 of 2000
Dan is obviously just a #ghostbro.
post #1770 of 2000

God, all those loser critics got totally played by Sony on that one.

post #1771 of 2000
My kids (girls aged 8 and 11) watched this at my mums. They love the original.

Hated it. When asked why: "Not funny, too many effects".
post #1772 of 2000
I'm still not over John Candy not getting the Louis Tully role.

Ghostbusters 2016? Never heard of it.

Based on that absolutely dreadful "Mike Hat" joke, no.

post #1776 of 2000

Not dead yet.

 

Ivan Reitman is repeating his promise that the GHOSTBUSTERS franchise has not been banished to the spirit world. In a new interview with io9, Reitman explained he’s working on both an animated movie he hopes will be released in 2019 or 2020 and some live-action projects. “We jumped into an animated film [after the last movie] and we are developing live-action films,“ he said. “I want to bring all these stories together as a universe that makes sense within itself. Part of my job right now is to do that.”  -- March 2017

Not in that movie.  Except when he was playing Kevin-as-possessed-by-Rowan.  The evil Kevin was more fun than ditzy Kevin.

You must be like, THE best dad EVER.

Cheers to bringin em up right, dude!
post #1779 of 2000

completely forgot that Hemsworth was in the movie!

 

 

all I can think about is that awful 'flipping the bird' scene!!!

post #1780 of 2000
Has anyone seen the actual video where he says this? He gives this look at the end that shows even more contempt for Paul Feig. Skip to the end.

post #1781 of 2000

wooooooow!

 

he almost came across like a supervillain sneering at a goon he was about to kill!

post #1782 of 2000
Just to remind everyone, Dan Aykroyd, while a delightful performer in his day, is now a crazy person with an enormous financial stake in this franchise. Free of such cumbersome responsibilities as relevance or ongoing projects, he can say whatever, as he frequently did in the lead up to this film. Take him with a rock of salt.
post #1783 of 2000

Well, Paul Feig has pictures of people doing Holtzman cosplay and little kids holding Funko Pops to make himself feel better about the experience.

 

Which...seems to work, so more power to him.

Aykroyd has always been crazy.

post #1785 of 2000
Only a certified genius could have made Nothing But Trouble.

Which I saw in theaters.
post #1786 of 2000
Oh man. What a fucking asshole.
post #1787 of 2000

It's his baby. Seems to me there obviously was some contention on set to begin with (his comments about telling him to shoot additional things and Feig waving him off).

Or an aesthetic whacko.

I just picture Feig as this relaxed sort of casual improv fan who's just having fun with people he likes(while delivering a pretty bad movie) and Dan is standing in the corner seething, the ultimate Ghostbusters fan nerd just furious that Feig couldn't give less of a fuck about his complicated mythology and love of the supernatural.

 

More queef jokes!

post #1790 of 2000
Oh Danny boy... the pipes, the pipes are calling!

His look and head shake to the camera. He really was hoping Paul was watching and knew how right he was about those suggestions.

Danny boy was enjoying every second.
post #1791 of 2000

More breaking comments from Dan...

 

post #1792 of 2000

heheheh keep elaborating!

 

he definitely sounds sore about not being more included in the creative decisions

I hope the scene he insisted be included was a $4 million scene of Melissa McCarthy being thrown around the alley by a proton pack.

post #1795 of 2000

Apparently a big sticking point was that dance sequence with Hemsworth that was a credits sequence and was then put back into the director's cut. That apparently cost a ton.

 

Whatever, this movie is good. 

post #1796 of 2000

so shoddy!

 

I place all blame squarely upon FEIG!!!

Aykroyd is a special kind of crazy though. Like from a long line from Canadian Mystics and his great-grandfather corresponded with Arthur Conan Doyle on the occult crazy.

I would never drink it, so that does not concern me!

post #1800 of 2000

Has anyone actually had it? Is it any good?
