There are few movies that I consider damn near perfect, and I could Ghostbusters among them. At twenty eight years old, Ghostbusters is still endearing despite the countless basic cable viewings I have made my family endure. In the ten years we have been together, she has stopped fighting it and even come to enjoy it. However, she does love to point out how dated some of the affects are (… especially with the demon dogs). And even for its faults, I enjoy Ghostbusters II, if only for Vigo and the Statue of Liberty powered by an NES Advantage Controller.
The powers that be have been trying to get Ghostbuster 3 going for years now. It’s been well documented that Bill Murray has been the major roadblock. In a recent interview with WGN in Chicago, Murray said that “it’s a possibility” that he may be involved with the newest entry into the franchise. Once again, the Internet overreacted, retweeting and Facebooking the hell out of the story.
As much as I would like to see Ghostbusters 3 come to fruition, I think at this point its best just to leave sleeping things lie. So if everyone on the Internet … especially those neck bearded basement dwellers. Please stop posting comments and speculative plot & casting, and your fan-fiction about this “sequel”, I would greatly appreciate it.
