Hm. Don't really see how the two are related at all, considering Ghostbusters is clearly more about a franchise legacy thing, and Broken Flowers is just a stand alone entity.

Apparently Hyde Park on Hudson isn't that great either, but he's at least getting good reviews for it.

He's at a point where he can pick and choose his projects and he doesn't have to rely on past successes or conspiracy alien theories.

The problem with any movie like Ghostbusters is that any sequel is really just going to be a remake of the first film.

Without any doubt in my mind here is a synopsis of the third film: after years of ghost busting retirement some supernatural entity threatens nyc. they have a few scenes of "getting the band back together" along with bringing on new recruits, who possibly have bought into Peter's franchise idea. They all then attempt to investigate the threat and take it down, but not before being summoned to the mayor's office.

I just realized I'd totally watch a Pixar's Ghostbusters. I don't want to see them old and fat, so animate those fatties and I'm down.

I'm surprised there is so much interest in a new Ghostbusters film. I loved it when I was a kid, but saw it again last year and I thought it had aged terribly and wasn't funny in the least.

When you watch the first Ghostbusters after you get older you pick up on a lot of the subtle innuendo and stuff you wouldn't as a kid.

Still one of my favorite movies ever.

Ghostbusters is my favorite movie of all time. It's pretty much perfect.

Kevin Smith just announced Clerks III on twitter.

@ThatKevinSmith: So with the HIT SOMEBODY shift, the minute Jeff Anderson signs on, my last cinematic effort as a writer/director will be CLERKS III. #TaDa

I enjoyed Clerks II.

You are never going to get the charm of the original Clerks, no matter what. It's just not possible, that being said I'd totally be there opening night for a Clerks 3.

A really good friend of mine..... his job is to go grocery shopping for film sets.... He said Bill Murray is the biggest ******* he ever shopped for :lol:

Brad Pitt and Tom Hanks were the coolest/nicest

Anne Hathaway is getting much kudos for her role, specifically the "I Dreamed a Dream" sequence, which was apparently shot in close-up as one continuous take.

Regardless, I love the musical and I'm all-in for this.


I dunno, I think there's a partially overwrought element present somewhere in the core of musical theatre to begin with. Obviously it can be taken too far at times (see: Moulin Rouge), but I think in general it's a big part of what can make the genre so uniquely entertaining.

Les Mis, in particular, screams for bombast. The music is (or was) hugely influential on musical theater, and the staging and set design are still impressive 25 years on. To do the stage production any sort of credit, a film version almost has to be a bit ott.

I don't mind that at all.

Funny thing about kindergarten cop. When the lady cop comes to visit the kids before psycho dad shows up, she sets her purse down on a shelf or something and then walks away to talk to the class. You later see that the purse she casually left sitting there contained a loaded gun. Ha.

Okay, so I finally saw The Dark Knight Rises. It's probably my least favorite of the 3, but still decent.

2 things bothered me enough to mention:
Spoiler:
1. Bane's Voice. LOLbad. Seriously.
2. So the bomb was detonated over the bay... wouldn't there still be terrible environmental effects like fallout and such? I'm not an expert on the subject, but seems like we're still talking a massive ecological disaster even if the city itself was not leveled in the blast.

Just read a few comments on TDKR and I am kinda shocked that this was even a debate:
Spoiler:
There were actually people who thought Bruce Wayne was not alive? I mean seriously?

Trees Lounge (1996):

Steve Buscemi really perfected the role of the drunken loser in that film.

I kind of wish it would have ended with Alfred passing a guy who kind of looked like he was maybe Bruce Wayne, but they never showed a good look at him. Alfred turns to look at him again, and the camera stays on his face as he smiles and nods, leaving it sort of open.

Agreed. Except, I don't even need to see a maybe Bruce Wayne. All I needed was that shot of Alfred sitting down, spotting something off camera and smiling.
