I have given too much on thought on it and I'll be giving my take and love on the original films, and my opinion on the all female Ghostbusters cast.

https://s1.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/VJRIT9HtbAwXNuj4oeCGCw--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7Zmk9ZmlsbDtoPTY0MDtpbD1wbGFuZTtweW9mZj0wO3E9NzU7dz05NjA-/http://media.zenfs.com/en_us/News/TVGuideTV/150127-news-melissa-mccarthy-kristen-wiig-leslie-jones-kate-mckinnon.jpg

The sentence is simple:
“I'm not against and never will be against female GB cast at all, I waited for it to happen a long time in the films since Janine became a GB herself in an episode of the original animated series, but I am not too sure this whole female solo GB team will work been a reboot, or the choices taken for them will work either!”.

The basic problem for the fandom to which, and I have to agree with, is that we waited for our good all boys to come back: romantic driven eccentric Peter Venkman, Paranormal Believer-man child child Ray Stantz, Mad scientist Egon Spengler, and average daily down to Earth man Winston Zeddemore. That's what we think about Ghostbusters – four “Big Apple Good Ol' Boys” who are ready to save their hometown from run away ghost and multidimensional traveling world destroying deities, even though when much of the town doesn't believe them, and on my mind on the sidelines Janine, Dana and Louise ready to help.

When I was a child this movie scare me, it's humor made me laugh, and made me love it terrifying awesome looking ghosts, above all Slimer, Zombie Cabby and of couse Stay Puft – that's what sold me Ghostbusters and it sequel – even though some people didn't like GB2 then. We can all agree in an age of CGI Jump scare films, we always look back at GB's 1 and 2, as great masterpieces of Comedy, with in the comedy genre. Horror Movies these days lack the imagination to have us mystified us with their story and terror – it's CGI Blood, CGI hack and slash CGI everything.

Now I'm going to make an honest to comparison here: Ghostbusters will not only be the only movie to get a mention here, Gremlins will so, cause these two project will start production soon.

Ghostbusters and it's 1984 rival Gremlins captivated us with the creatures they presented on screen and how believable they were cause they were there, Gremlins they use props, in Ghostbusters the actors use costumes and were put in a blue screen for the ghosts – both franchise worry me for the upcoming film, will enforce CGI in our faces, which I am not against – for Godzilla and the Muto, it worked, it so for Hulk and the Transformers character (movies deliverance is a whole other thing).

The things that concerns me with Ghostbusters, and as well for Gremlins is will they be respectful to the source material, will they remain comedy, cause these are very beloved 1980's films, and for the fandom is about respecting the source material as presenting it to a new generation or movie goers who have not seen the originals yet. The hope I got for Gremlins is that its writer Chris Columbus, who also wrote Goonies is on board as it's director for Gremlins and Goonies 2 and he knows his source material he wrote them under Spielberg, and he knows what we want – kind hearted Gizmo versus adorable evil Mogwai Madness who are different like those of the new batch and transformed into Gremlin chaos and Gizmo and his friends saving the day (well, night … rule#1 anyone?). But above all Gremlins should remain a Horror-Comedy or a comedy like G2TnB (as along as those motherfuckers make me laugh and unique and have a lot of imagination, I'm okay) and he could still decide at the end of the day if this will be G3 and bring be back Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates as an older couple with grown children of their own still trying to keep Gizmo save, or Gremlins remake with new younger actors, I'll respect it, cause, Columbus know his source material. No Horror, no Gizmo villains, no of the original violent ideas that were planned and later discarded for the first film.

When Bill Murray decided not to return and the 2nd blow of Harold Ramis passing, I knew the project was in serious trouble, cause it open the movie to too many changes, which one can be open to as long they were done well. On the plus side they got director and writer of the heat and other successes Paul Feig and Katie Dippold to respectfully direct and write the new Ghostbusters, on the questionable side the choices for a full female cast with Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy co-staring as the new Female GB's.

Now is important that you notice I didn't used the word bad, but questionable – cause this could make or break the film.

The problem with Ghostbusters which is not visible with Gremlins, is that almost 30 years have passed since their sequels, and both films have aged in different ways – GB's hasn't age well cause the longer we waited for GB3, our boys became older and older to be capable to run again in Downtown Manhattan on their Ecto1 as they did. Can you imagine an old Bill Murray running on his Peter Venkman GB outfit on Broadway today - face falling, bolder than what he was in GB 1 and 2. A Fat Egon, age stricken Winston and Ray. The opportunity to make GB's 3 was lost in the late 90s and early 2000s. If Ramis have lived longer and Murray buried the hatchet with him, GB's 3 would have come out with them too old to make us believe they can keep playing the parts, which for along time gave us the possibility of training a new generation of Ghostbusters to take their job, or which was always a possibility, remake movie 1 with new actors. Gremlins on the other hand, the movie can go either way - Zach and Phoebe, now older, can still play their parts as Billy and Kate, now married in their mid 50's with older children, any of whom could be a good successors to be Gizmo's guardians if anything were to happen to them, or remake the first film with younger actors. We won't probably truly known how it will be until later this year when we find out, probably at San Diego Comic Con, we could get something.

We kept giving hope for both GB's3 and Gremlins 3 for a long time - the catch is with GB's 3 was more on the news as Dan Aykroyd kept talking about the reworking of the script in talks to Bill Murray on the public minds, the last time a cameo in the Casper film, and Murray's dress at the awards, where as Gremlins 3 was more among the producers in private conversations, rarely talked about publicly and forgotten over time as hope for the fandom's mind, thus our hopes for each film aged is different.

Gremlins you can have a new generation heroes with Gizmo under Billy's and Kate's family, and the possibility could still be open, you just don't know how open, or remake it and still have Gizmo in it cause you'll see the little fussball, to where as Ghostbusters our heroes were turning old, with one of the 4 actors now dead. This changes everything and opens the idea for a long overdue reboot, what the people working in it didn't though of is that we still expected Peter, Ray, Egon and Wiston with Janine, Louise and Dana, along with Slimer, Zombie Cabby and Stay Puft.

Now the actresses as I discovered are full of talent, trying to make them the new take on GB's because is a good idea is in term not, because that's what happened to Godzilla in the mid 90 under Emerich and Devlin - they thought good changes to Godzilla were a good idea and look what happened, fans were pissed and Godzilla 2 never happened. Same circumstances went for the first Hulk film and they have to rebooted in less than 4 years when they originally idea they wanted was a sequel for it.

What Paul Feig and Katie Dippold should do what the Transformers writers did to calm down the doubts of at least a large portion of honest to Earth TFS fans (ignore the fanatical puriest, cause you won't be able to deal with them) -what they should do is a livestream, to answers the questions of concern fans.

I was open to a reboot happening anytime, and now more with Ramis dead, but I alway envision Peter, Ray, Egon and Wiston under new faces, with my hope of the movie ending with Dana, Janine and Louise becoming Ghostbusters #5, 6 and 7, an opportunity the 2nd film missed, you would think that with the GB in trouble in the 2nd movie, Louise and Janine should have together jump at the chance (don't get me wrong Rick Moranis made that part funny) and with the crap Dana and her child went through you would think movie 2 would have ended with her becoming one herself and that was missed so badly.

Now these choices, are not bad, but alters everything, it denies the original from its place - one won't able to identified the four actresses as the relateable thing just because is Ghostbusters.

Now to my opinion...

Is more on questions than fan rage. This decision seems to be forced on the movie itself, and I have to wonder, if Aykroyd and Ramis, whom have been trying to champion a new film for almost 30 years shared that idea? We won't know sadly from Harold Ramis' take, cause the rumors of female GBs have been going on before his death. We hadn't heard Bill Murray. Ernie Hudson has been stated to be critical about it, and his take on it on his facebook account seems so. Production is expected to start this year, and unless they don't explain to us why this change is good, my hopes aren't too high for this movie, and I'm gonna say something now, it would be disrespectful to the memory of Harold Ramis to make this a political correctness or femenist issues cause he also fought to get a new one sequel or reboot. Female Ghostbusters is a great idea, The real question is...

Why the need for it? to what good serves this change to original?

Why can't we have Peter? Why can't we have Ray? Why can't we have Egon? Why can't we have Winston? Why can't Janine and Dana fill that gap? Why been a reboot at all.

Time will tell whether this is a bang or a bust, but thus far I don't seem convience on WHY making the movie this way is a good idea? And that's what they need to, explain it NOW! For me, all I want are explanations to the why, rather than saying is "blasphemy" like a simple minded puriest and taking this out of control about femenist, insults Ramis' memory. tv.yahoo.com/news/fan-reaction…
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

In regards to Ghostbusters, Dan Aykroyd has expressed on the new Ghostbusters cast as "magnificent" www.yahoo.com/movies/s/dan-ayk…

In the original movie's concept the Ghostbusters were going to been shown as a worldwide franchise - why not DO THAT, been Chicago, New Orleans or European branch for the company (ending of the Ghostbusters game anyone?), do that and this won't be taken so out of context by puriest. This just came to my mind after just watching Black Nerd. Shoutout to him, cause he brings good points:)

I've seen your dark crystal art pieces and I was wondering
since you've made the 5 main skeksis and 5 secondary skeksis
will you make the 5 main mystics and 5 secondary mystics?
