Sequel to original Ghostbusters set for 2020

Post by Nspace » Wed Jan 16, 2019 3:43 pm

:D :love:

To be directed by Jason Reitman (the four-time Oscar nominee son of original director Ivan Reitman). Production begins this summer, but no word yet on the cast.

I'm excited and curious as to what they are going to do with it. And I'm very curious as to who they will cast.

I hope instead of the last movie with 4 women ghostbusters, this movie will have 8! So I can watch boyMan heads explode like in the ending of kingsmen.

I hope it has as many women as is needed to make it good.

Four was clearly not enough.

you are right...we should square it...16!

(and for the record I will gladly watch the last movie a hundred times more than I would watch ghostbusters 2.)

I would actually say the remake is just as good as Ghostbusters 2. Which may be a textbook definition of damning with faint praise.

The movie annoyed me, not because of any "They spoiled mah childhood with girl cooties!" nonsense, but because they took 4 very funny women and wasted their talents for 116 minutes.

Didn't they just end that? I mean, only for a few weeks, but still.

None of the issues around the wall are resolved. Trump is stuck on building a wall because that’s the promise his base is holding him to. Republicans are stuck along with him because their base forces them to be. Democrats aren’t having too much difficulty convincing most voters (crucially including independents) that extending literal walls is unnecessary, and that they have better ideas for border security more generally; moreover their base is as adamantly opposed to Trump’s wall as his base is adamantly committed to demanding it.

So I’m expecting Trump to shutdown again (won’t work any better this time) or declare emergency (will get shot down by courts, unpopular with Congressional Republicans) and lose another battle. There’s really no way out of this for him. He’s made his bed and now he’s got no choice left but to lie in it.

yeah making your stand on literal concrete is a tricky one to fudge away. Another shutdown though is political suicide. The Dem's will let him put that gun to his own head but their compromise will simply be 5 billion on increased surveillance tech.

Once in office, Trump dropped the wall like a hot potato until suddenly now. This video hypothesizes that Fox and other right-wing commentators caused Trump to suddenly "remember" about the wall.

The republicans are so far gone that they are not in charge of themselves, that's the lobbyists (republicans gutted senate and house committees so lobbyists write most of the law) and the right-wing news.
