It is set up to be one kind of movie in the first 30 seconds, and then gradually revealed to be the Ghostbusters trailer by the end. It’s pretty well done, actually. They are also clearly trying to distance themselves from Ghostbusters 2016 as much as they can, both in premise and in tone.

    Nice breakdown as usual. I will try to soak in some of your optimism. Aww. . . Let it in.

    Modern Hollywood has tried their best to tarnish Conan, Total Recall, Red Dawn, Robocop, Predator, Terminator and Ghostbusters from the 80s. So fingers crossed and I truely do hope for the best.

    Well, we can never have Ghostbusters 3. That time is past. So the way I figure it, we can either have nothing, a remake, or a continuation that takes the basic premise and tries to do something new with it.

    I see absolutely no reason to remake Ghostbusters '84. Why bother - the original is lightning in a bottle. But Afterlife looks like is might be doing something new with the idea, and I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt for trying. I could enjoy a movie or two that doesn't try to recreate the original.

    Great points. Considering track record so far? I would cast a big vote for "nothing".

    How many great sequels or remakes would we have missed?
    Bladerunner 2049 and Fury Road would be sorely missed. Episode 7 and 8. Ridley Scott Alien sequels.

    I'm excited for this one since Reitman is directing it.

    PLUS completely original ideas would be cool. Like maybe a movie about a lion cub King, , or a boy/spider that fights crime. . . Oh wait!

    With the energy and money spent on those maybe we would have had a brand new lightning in a bottle like Ghostbusters and Robocop, Predator, ect. We will never know.

    I agree, and thought the exact same thing when I watched the trailer.

    You made some great points as well.

    Hope Ghostbusters is good. Excited.

    I saw Split on opening night and it was one of those rare moviegoing experiences where people (including myself) were genuinely surprised by the ending.

    It's just not something that you see nowadays with the internet.

    That ending was ruined for me.... I would have lost it had I been in the theater and not known. I wish you would see that shock more often.

    I managed to see it spoiler-free, and yes, the ending was great. The thing is, it's still a fine movie without that ending, but the ending recast the whole movie in a different light.

    Split is one of my favourite movies of 2017. It might BE my favourite, although I'm probably just forgetting a better one of that year.

    Completely agree! The film has a ton of rewatch value because of that. As you mentioned, the film still works even if you had never seen Unbreakable, which a testament to M. Night.

    Going to see this week. I am SO glad Phoenix won... I do wish that Todd won for director BUT at least actor was right. I also loved that Brad Pitt won.

    Of course it did because it's literally the only film I haven't seen prior to the show. I'm hoping to see it this weekend. I'm hearing great things and Mendes is usually pretty dependable.

    Currently it's only playing in San Francisco, so I must wait until Friday to see it locally. I'm going to the 10:30 am showing.
