I’m so glad this movie is more like Stranger Things than that horrid rebooted garbage. We will never have the classic look, feel and yes, comedy of the original movies, but I don’t want it that way. I want a fresh take that doesn’t try to hard and end up sucking.
Then the real magic happened! ECTO 1 (not ECTO 1A from the second movie) tearing through corn fields with its sirens blaring and blue lights flashing! It look all rusty and banged up... just like it should do after 35 years. Oh I LOVED IT!!
Then... THEN! the trailer came out on Monday 9th December 2019! After 3 or 4 dozen time watching it over and over again and picking through it frame by frame I realised something...
They're ready to believe you!

It was just like all life as I know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in my body exploding at the speed of light... yes, total protonic reversal!
What he said was utter crap! The reboot was nothing like the walking dead!!!!! So it’s nice to see this new movie making fun out of the reboot from the start!

Yet I felt sad at first, knowing that in the time since GB2 the characters fell onto hard time... but that’s just how the second movie started anyway, with Ray and Winston dancing for ungrateful yuppy larva at some little gits birthday party.
What the trailer

After the dark times of the remarkably poor reboot in 2016, I honestly didn’t know what was happening to my beloved franchise.

After all we don’t live in the 80s any more! It 2019!!! The first movie came out 35 years ago! No wounded this movie is full of kids who don’t know who the ghostbuster are or what a ghost-trap is!

Wow! Who you gonna call indeed! The trailer has just dropped for the ‘Ghostbuster Afterlife’ movie due for release summer 2020 and I for one have mixed feeling after watching it!
I also played with the toys (see Toy Galaxy review) and even played the Ghostbusters video game... both times it got released: Way back in 2009 and again ten years latter on the Nintendo Switch in 2019!

Hell I even smashed my face into the side of my parents garden pond dressed as a ghostbuster back in 1993... Proton-pack, trap and all! So it’s safe to say slim is well and truly is in my blood!
Summer 2020 is gonna be Biblical! Like a Twinkie that’s 35 feet long, weighing approximately 600 pounds. So who the hell you gunna call next summer?

When we finally got the news that the OG cast was getting back together for one last chance to cross the streams. My little mind was blown wide open like an interventional cross rip!
As for us old people we are meant to relate to Paul Rudd’s character ‘Mr. Grooberson’ and connect to the movie through him! He remembers the classic ghostbusters when Manhattan was “like the walking dead”!
Most kids these days probably don’t have a clue. Such a cleaver way to get a new generation into the store.
.... oh and one last thing... if somebody asks you if you're a god, you say...
...this line from Mr. Grooberson was referring to the original Ghostbusters as they walked through the streets of Manhattan in the trailer. I think it’s put into the trailer to make fun out of the director of the female-fronted Ghostbusters reboot, Paul Feig, after he revealed that he took his inspiration partly from the ultra-gory cult favourite zombie TV series The Walking Dead.
it was awesome!
