If not, you're missing out on some geeky goodness -- the kind that encourages creativity and ingenuity mixed with your favorite art!A member of the Ghostbusters set decor team gave the former "Mythbusters" host a tour of their interior set (whose exterior set was also u...

The Famous Ghostbusters Moment That Was Not In The Original Script

The original "Ghostbusters" is arguably one of the most quotable movies of the 1980s – which is strange to think about, considering it's a movie about a bunch of slacker scientists who sort of stumble their way into discovering a way to capture ghosts in New York City. Among the film's many memorable lines is "don't cross the streams," a crucial piece of info that Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) gives to his ghostbusting pals and which comes back to save the day at the end of the film. (I am genuin...

Sigourney Weaver Gave A Unique Ghostbusters Audition – Here's The Story

When Sigourney Weaver appeared as Dana Barrett in "Ghostbusters," she was between two other landmark performances — in "Alien" and "Aliens." The former served as her breakout role while the latter earned her an Oscar nomination for best actress, a first for her in her career.Having dabbled in sci-fi horror and also romantic dramas like "The Year of Living Dangerously," Weaver was looking to spice up her filmography with some work in a different genre. Mental Floss notes that she wanted to do a c...

13 Fantasy Films That Never Got Sequels

Unlike "The Lord of the Rings," not every road goes ever on and on. For every sprawling, multi-part fantasy franchise, there's at least one fantasy film that never got a sequel -- and often, that's for the best. After all, some stories lend themselves better to further world-building and epic storytelling. Others don't. Sometimes, a happily ever after needs to stay that way.Or do they? In a world where studios squeeze popular IPs for all they're worth -- and what are fantasy stories if not fairy...

The 15 Best '90s Comedies Ranked

The '90s were a landmark decade for comedy films. The growth of independent filmmaking allowed unique comedic voices to reach mainstream audiences. "Saturday Night Live" generated a new batch of comedy stars, many of whom made successful screen debuts during the decade and are still active today. The old guard was still around, too, creating characters with more depth and nuance than any parts they played during the '80s. It wasn't just live-action, either; for the first time, adult animated sho...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Early Buzz: Critics Ain't Afraid Of No Sequel

We got one! Or at least, in this case, much more than one. "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" is still months away from release, but Sony held a surprise screening at CInemaCon last night, which is an event held primarily for theater owners and attended by journalists in case there's any new footage from highly anticipated movies. Well, they certainly got that and then some as Sony made sure to bring the goodies. Not only did those in attendance get to see the premiere of the "Spider-Man: No Way Home" tr...

Five Underrated Brendan Fraser Performances

Once upon a time, Brendan Fraser was a star on the rise after appearing in hits like George of the Jungle and The Mummy where he displayed a knack for blending heroic bravado with deft comedy. Then, one day, the man simply fell off the map. Last I saw, he was battling insane animals alongside Brooke Shields in Furry Vengeance. Now, with news that Fraser will appear in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon and his recent role in Doom Patrol, there’s hope that our once budding superstar wil...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Looks Like The Real Ghostbusters: The Movie

Call it fate, call it luck, call it karma, but after years, nay, decades of waiting, Ghostbusters fans are finally getting a proper sequel to the original Ghostbusters via Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife — at least, judging by that incredibly cool (and incredibly cheesy) new trailer.

‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Trailer Breakdown: Maybe It’s the Apocalypse

This morning, a new trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife finally arrived, a year and a half after the first one. Thankfully, it was worth the wait, with a tease that packs the kind of punch the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens did, with a little bit of Super 8 thrown in there for good measure. Since this trailer dives into the story, albeit vaguely, there are plenty of new details to uncover. So let’s dig in with a Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer breakdown. Our story takes place...

Ghostbusters: Not a Child’s Toy

Ghostbusters has been in my life for as long as I can remember. No, really. Some of my earliest childhood memories involve watching the flick with my dad (and missing 75 percent of the jokes), strapping on a backpack and teaming up with friends to take down spooks, specters and ghosts on the school playground, sitting with my nose pressed to the TV eagerly awaiting the next episode of The Real Ghostbusters, perhaps the greatest animated series of the 1980s, singing along to that awesome Ray Par...

The Hidden Heroine

It's that time of the year again. Everyone who's got a beating heart knows that as soon as February rolls around, there's a major holiday to be reckoned with, one that's come to symbolize the meaning of love and romance for America, if not the world. I'm speaking, of course, about Groundhog Day (which this year on 02-02-21 has a nice numerical look to it). Granted, there was a time, long ago (i.e. before 1993), when this holiday lacked the romantic associations since bestow...

Did ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Get Rick Moranis to Make an Appearance After All?

Ghostbusters: Afterlife was unfortunately delayed yet again, this time moving back from a summer release to November 2021. That means we have almost an entire year before we get to see the sequel that picks up around 30 years after the events of the first two Ghostbusters movies. The good news is it will be a reunion of many of the original Ghostbusters cast members…and there’s a chance one of the stars who was believed to be sitting this sequel out may actually make an appearance.

Following a deep dive into the history and legacy of The Comedy Store, Showtime has another chronicle of a comedy staple who left us far too soon. John Belushi was a tour de force. After breaking out on Saturday Night Live and National Lampoon’s Animal House, Belushi became one of the biggest comedy stars in the world. He was the kind of guy everyone wanted to have a beer with. But while there was this wrecking ball of comedic energy on the outside, on the inside, Belushi was dealing with his o...

Why James Gandolfini’s Tony Soprano Is “the Greatest Acting Achievement Ever Committed to the Screen”: A Video Essay

The ongoing "golden age" of prestige television drama began more than twenty years ago, but how many shows have truly surpassed The Sopranos, the one that started it all? However many series come and go, raising large and often obsessive fan bases with their varying mixtures of crime, history, politics, science fiction, fantasy, and intrigue, none have shown the cultural staying power of this six-season tale of a mob boss in turn-of-the-21st-century New Jersey. That The Sopranos remains ...

‘Ghostbusters’ Answers the Call of Independence Day Audiences, Topping Last Weekend’s Box Office Charts

Audiences made the call for more movies to bring them out of quarantine, and Ghostbusters answered.
