Hot buttered damn! Until this morning, I had no idea this was on the way. I may smile the whole rest of this day. I figured you could use a big fuckin’ smile on your face, too.
So many good moments from this franchise, and so many good lines. E.g.: “People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”
That is all.
BLASPHEMY!!!! The new “Ghost Busters” shits all over this any day of the week!
Fuck me. There’s a new Ghostbusters coming too? I have been living exclusively in my metal cave for too long. Must come out and blink in the light like a mole more often.
Oh Noes! It’s the Film guy!
The new Ghost Busters will suck, and it’s gotta actually move part the script phase, which it’s been in for the last 5 years. Bill Murray is the one holding out, and now they’re talking about doing it without him anyways, seeing as the plot is going to be about passing the mantle to new younger Ghostbusters… Can you say “Spinoff franchise”?
I loved the Men In Black films as a kid. They were slightly dumb, slightly smart sci fi’s executed with perfect balance in the entertainment field. I also remember the 1st one so vividly because it freaked me the fuck out as a child. I have no idea how that twisted cockroach son of a bitch made it into a PG film (He’s terrifying inside the farmer, not so much when he’s actually revealed)
This third one has run into some colossal problems behind the scene though, so it’ll be interesting to see how it turns out.
Basically, they started shooting the film with only half a script to take advantage of certain tax breaks with an aim to resume shooting the second half of the film a few months down the line. However, that date passed and everyone sat around twiddling their thumbs while the production continually lost money. The script changed hands multiple times and no one knew how to end it.
Tommy Lee Jones was even quoted at the time doing an interview saying “Honestly, I don’t even know what the movie is about.”
I really hope it’s good, but the last big film that started shooting without a completed script that then ran into lots of script related issues was Pirates 3… and we all know what a gigantic overblown clusterfucking shit that turned out to be.
I hope it’s good, but I’m trying to temper my expectations…
Also, Josh Brolin’s impression of Tommy Lee Jones is perfect!
Thanks for the details Quigs. Sad to hear about the script problems — I sure as hell hope this doesn’t turn out to be lame, because the first two were big fun. And the Ghost Busters doesn’t even sound real. Something not real can’t shit all over something that is real. So I will remain (cautiously) stoked about MIB-3.
You’re welcome sir. It’s weird, I had a feeling to impulsively check NCS after seeing the trailer and lo and behold… You had written about it! Great minds think alike good sir!
MIB sucks. Sorry, but it does. Even a theoretical ghostbusters trumps 99.9% of the crap Hollywood churns out these days. Including a movie staring a washed up 50 year old rapper turned actor.
Aww hell yeah! The worlds ending!
…I mean Men in Black is gonna be suh-weeet
Shiiiit, that was funny. That gets a gold star for Ben in the NCS home room.
MIB3 should be worth seeing. GB3, however….
I’m not sure a sequel, even one that hands things off to a new generation of proton pack wielders instead of having the old guys try to keep up, is going to work and fans of the first two movies probably wouldn’t take to a reboot.
