    You know what back in 2005 why not Director name Tim Burton should made Ghostbusters movie call’ed Ghostbusters 3 The Wrath of Cthulhu With the same old actors like Bill Murray as Peter Venkman Dan Aykroyd as Ray Stantz Sigourney Weaver as Dena as Venkman Harold Ramis as Egon Spengler (before he passed away) Ernie Hudson as Winston Z Annie Potts as Janine and even younger teen actors like Munro Chambers as Oscar (that he is now grown up) Christa B. Allen as Jenny (Oscar’s Girlfriend) Michael B Jordan as Max (Winston’s Nephew) Vanessa Hudgens as Lisa (Oscar’s Girl Cousin) and even Tim Burton’s buddy name Johnny Depp as David the evil villain (who worship Cthulhu as a god) so that way Tim Burton will Focus on Series roots on The same Story to Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters Movies but Ivan Reitman will be a Producer along with Director name Tim Burton will Direct another Sequel called Ghostbusters 3 The Wrath Of Cthulhu but it will came out in Summer 2005 not that stupid remake called Charlie and the chocolate factory!

    This movies concept was terrible and reused many parts from the first film, it was a bit confusing and over the top in a bad way, less funny and just not as good as the first one....but goddamnit, Bill, Dan, Harold, Earnie, and of course, Rick, all save this movie by being thier charming awesome selves. Because of them, this shit movie is actually fun. That is the true power of the ghostbusters, and the reason no reboot will ever succeed. The original team and the original actors fucking nailed it, and there will never be anyone like them.

    I DEFINITELY agree with Critic. 17:52-20:12 This would've been SOOOO much better. If this actually happened then Ghostbusters II would probably have been nearly as GREAT and AMAZING as the first movie we all love. Kind of like how The Godfather Part II was nearly as GREAT and AMAZING as the first Godfather movie.

    • [gamecatz] Jamy Epstein

      @Banjo Dark It for sure would work to have the Statue of Liberty stay in the movie. I definitely agree. That has CERTAINLY became a popular reference in movies, video games, tv shows, etc.

    • Banjo Dark
      Banjo Dark 9 days ago

      [gamecatz] Jamy Epstein Yes!!! I do think it would work to have the Statue of Liberty still in the movie. Besides, that's became a popular reference/eater egg throughout media.

    30:49 I still honestly have no clue how Janosh got the power to become a ghost that can fly and have stretch arms. How come he doesn't use that power again when the Ghostbusters all come to rescue Dana & Oscar at the end of the movie?

    *It wasn’t Peters kid because In the 80s divorce rates skyrocketed because of no fault divorces becoming a thing in the 70s (same reason every 80s sitcom has a dead/single parent) and movies and films wanted to capitalize on this*
