MiB clearly took a lot of influence from Ghostbusters. I think it's pretty awesome that the third film in each series is going to be going head to head in the same year.

They made a movie about that premise?<p> That's the most retarded thing I have ever heard. <p> What's next: a movie based on the menu at T.G.I. Friday's?

MiB now or something...it has been over ten years since the original afterall! I'd actually love to see a new MiB flick though as the first is a modern classic and the sequel has that Ghostbusters 2 syndrome..you know, its just a retread of the first but enjoyable enough all the same. A third film, with the right idea and much much more ambition could be great..like an agent exchange film where J is sent off to investigate something on a distant planet, while some other alien MiB guy takes over for him on earth or something...obviously not that idea but something much better.

I love the series. Even the over the top craziness of the second one was fine with me. I hope the third goes even bigger and broader.

It just doesn't scream "Make a movie out of me!" I mean, do you really wanna watch two women cook for two hours? Turn on the Food Network.

So, does that mean in 2012 we get the MIB/Ghostbusters crossover film? I could spend an hour going over the franchise parallels so I won't even start. A lot of Ghostbuster's ghosts look like alien species already, so it wouldn't be a jump at all.

Big names and yet since Indy 4 (and MiB 2, Ghostbusters 2, Spider-Man 3 for that matter) I just can't be excited for these. <P> And no, just seeing the characters back on the screen after all this time doesn't necessarily make it worthwhile.

The first one had a great tone. The second was just too light and felt like a rehash. HOWEVER - there is gold in the story if it's done right. Get. Them. Off. Planet. Seriously, J & K in space in the midst of a galactic war in a similar vein to Galaxy Quest would absolutely work. And bring back Linda Florentino or whatever her name is.

Gerard Butler has yet to be forgiven. Why doesn't he get back to "300" style action movies instead of this romantic fluff?
April 1, 2009, 6:05 p.m. CST
The last one was one of the worst studio films I have ever seen!

Was pretty awful, and the first was only decent. The third will make tons of money though because of Will Smith. I'm really worried that they'll mess up Ghostbusters 3 with the next-gen cast. And someone here was all over me (was it Vern?) when I said that was the direction of the movie, and he said it wasn't set in stone (despite that being the direction of the script rewrites for years, and what the writers said, and Akroyd said, and what Raimis said, etc), and lo and behold, that is the direction they are going in.

Seriously go watch Taking of Pelham 123, and watch any Travolta film, and try to say with a straight face Travolta plays a better badguy!

If only there was a way to know! <p> Am I the only one that DOESN'T want Ghostbusters 3? Wasn't 2 bad enough? Unless they're trying to redeem themselves, 20 years later. End it already.

MIB1 was great but was like a prologue instead of a full feature film, MIB2 had, uh, good aliens. Rick Baker's stuff made those films. Recognise this, suits.

April 1, 2009, 9:38 p.m. CST
C'mon these guys know what there doing I don't believe Ramis and Murray and Dan Ackroyd and that black dude would make this film if they couldn't pull it off. Only thing that sucks is Rick Moranis won't act anymore and he really needs to be in this.

Mainly because they changed Agent Elle's voice. The origial voice was sexy as hell, the new one just blew.
April 1, 2009, 10:26 p.m. CST
Like shockingly so. And I love really dark comedies, but this thing shifted tone about 17 times during the movie, it couldn't figure out what the hell it wanted to be. Unfortunately, the least of them was funny (or simply entertaining).
April 1, 2009, 10:32 p.m. CST
Nope, you're not alone. Though the ironic thing is, I appear to be the only person on the PLANET that really liked Ghostbusters 2. I'm not saying it was as good as the original, but I have almost as much fun reciting dialog from it (& I can pretty much do it all) as I do from part 1. I love it.<br> <br> But no G3 idea I've EVER heard have I liked so far, not if it's anything in line with the "passing the reigns on to a new generation", even if Murray IS involved (which, I'm shocked he'd actually sign up for any thing with that premise).

he may not have been the original choice for venkman, but he is the character and always seemed to understand what made the first one tick.
April 1, 2009, 11:05 p.m. CST
make it less of a silly comedy/action and more realistic scifi.

Ever since I heard smith take one of Rock's catchphrases in MIIB, I thought if was smith's way of trying to get him involved.

Those "funny" scenes he described sound excruciating. A kid remotley masturbates a grown woman in public sound really funny. Who made this movie ,Mary Kay Laturnoe?

Honestly, I am quite sick of the trend. But watching Heigl feign clitoral stimulus...I may sneak into that one.

Year One looks ridiculous. Even Mel Brooks and Monty Python knew enough to at least stick to a vaguely historical time line. Cavemen wandering through Bible stuff doesn't even make sense on an absurd humor level. And these are the guys writing Ghostbusters 3?

the second one was pretty damn lame (despite having a handful of funny scenes), but I guess I would be game for a third
