Who You Gonna Call? Ghostbusters 3
A lot of my friends may not know this about me, but I have always been a BIG fan of Ghostbusters. Yes, I own both movies and yes, I did own a Proton pack. The Ghostbusters movies have always been in my top favorite movies list. The first movie premiered in 1984, a year before I was born. I can’t remember the first time I watched either movie, but it definitely left a lasting impression.
I absolutely loved every character in both movies. Everyone played their part to the “T”. Even Bobby Brown did a decent job with his cameo in the second movie, which happened to be my introduction to the singer. Funny, huh? The Ghostbusters movies had drama, romance, comedy and action. Just a few qualities that made the movies great. In comparison to what film makers are able to do today, I think Ghostbusters was made quite well for the era it was created. Unlike a lot of movies from the 80s, it has stood the test of time, which is why I consider it a classic.
Well, if you’re into movies as much as I am, you are probably aware that there will be a third installment of Ghostbusters. However, Dan Aykroyd has announced to Metro that the movie will be shot without Bill Murray (Below you’ll find a link to the article). I have watched both Ghostbusters movies what feels like a hundred times. So, I understand how important Dr. Peter Venkman, Billy Murray’s character, is to the Ghostbusters’ franchise. He added the most humor and was an evolving character. I wouldn’t say that he was my favorite character, Dr. Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) was my favorite actually. While I am disappointed that Murray won’t be returning, I understand his rationale. The Ghostbusters franchise is held with high regard by many. There’s always a risk in making a sequel because there’s a strong possibility that it will be awful. For example, the Little Mermaid Two, Terminator 3, and Alien vs. Predator are all bad sequels. Both Ghostbusters movies are good; to follow-up with a bad movie would be an epic fail. Ultimately, I believe the third movie will be missing something important, but I have faith that the movie will be so good that that detail can be overlooked. Whenever Ghostbusters 3 hits the big screen, I will be in attendance waiting in anticipation.
I took this picture last weekend; it inspired this post.
