Paul Feig Still Wants a Ghostbusters Sequel

Paul Feig still wants to make a sequel to his 2016 Ghostbusters reboot. It was a long road getting another Ghostbusters movie made following 1989’s Ghostbusters II. That movie came five years after the enormous success of the original, but the cast and crew considered the movie a one-off. The subsequent success of The Real Ghostbusters cartoon and assorted merchandise led to the studio pushing for a sequel, but it was released in a crowded summer period that included Batman and Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, so it wasn’t quite as profitable.

Hands Down the Best VHS Tape In the History of VHS Tapes

Why is this the best VHS tape in the history of all VHS tapes? Because it could have likely been the last one that the person who taped over little Matthew’s 1st B’day party ever taped in their life. It couldn’t be because they taped Ghostbusters II over it, since the movie had its funny moments but it couldn’t hold a candle to the first one. Back in the day though when you needed a blank tape to record a movie or a show that you really wanted to watch later a lot of people struggled with the issue of

Remastered Classics: 5 Legendary Movies You Should Watch On Your HD TV

Never underestimate the power of 35mm film… or 65mm or 70mm for that matter! Old film was remarkably high quality, certainly much more so than the classics would have us believe, and today we’re able to enjoy this in all its glory.

Digital remastering allows for colour correction, scratch removal, and even added effects; practically anything can be achieved using modern techniques on original film reel content. So here are 5 old movies remastered in high definition that are definitely worth watching.

Jaws

We’re going to need a bigger boat to enjoy Jaws in all it’s HD, shark-infested glory! To celebrate Universal Pictures’ 100th anniversary in 2012, the film studio decided to digitally remaster one of its most iconic movies of all time, transforming the original 35mm film into a 1080p picture. Once scratches were removed, colour was corrected, and degradation of the reel was addressed, the results were incredible.

This Gremlins Poster Art is Loaded with 84 Easter Eggs From Movies and TV

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a collection of poster art from The Bottleneck Gallery featuring all kinds of geek culture art. One of those pieces included a Gremlins print from artist Ape Meets Girl a.k.a. Kevin Wilson

As it turns out, that piece is packed to the brim with cool little Easter eggs from film and TV. There are 84 Easter eggs to be exact. You can take on the challenge of trying to find and name them all, or you can look at the cheat sheet that released below. 

The Gremlins print is called "The Old Curiosity Shop," and as you can see, it focuses on the little creepy antique shop where inventor Randall Peltzer purchases the mysterious creature Mogwai. 

When I originally saw the poster at I noticed a few Easter eggs stick out like Freddy Krueger's glove, Jason's hockey mask, and the mask from Mask,

Will The Next Ghostbusters Film Bring Harold Ramis Back From The Dead?

One of the more peculiar choices in last year’s disappointing Ghostbusters reboot/remake was seeing the familiar actors from the original movies in cameo roles as different characters. Were fans really hankering to see Bill Murray return to the franchise as Martin Heiss, or Dan Ackroyd popping up as a random taxi driver? No. We want Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore. We’d love Egon Spengler too, but.. well, Harold Ramis is dead. So that’s out, right?

Apparently not. We live in an age of wonders where CGI technology can recreate actors and drag Ramis from the grave for one last ghostbustin’ runaround. It sounds a bit tasteless, yet it’s precisely this that was teased by Ivan Reitman during the franchise’s Comic-Con panel.

In response to a question from an audience member asking whether the next film could use CG to recreate the original cast,

Ghostbusters 2 Twin Who Played Baby Oscar Dies from Apparent Suicide

Ghostbusters 2 Twin Who Played Baby Oscar Dies from Apparent Suicide
Henry "Hank" Deutschendorf, who portrayed baby Oscar in Ghostbusters 2 has apparently committed suicide, he was 29 years old. Henry and his twin brother William portrayed baby Oscar, Dana Barrett's (Sigourney Weaver) baby. The two were recently in a documentary about Ghostbusters II, entitled "Cleanin' Up the Town," but neither of the twins acted again after that role. Afterwards, Henry and William became martial arts teachers and trainers at their own center in California. Henry was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder in August of 2008 and hung on for as long as he could before taking his own life last week.

William found his twin brother in his apartment in Escondido, California after Henry had hung himself according to law enforcement sources. William and his family have set up a DonorDrive to raise awareness for the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation as well as share memories of their brother and son. Read what William had to say about Henry below.

" Hank was diagnosed in August of 2008. If you knew Hank before his diagnosis, you knew a young man who was upbeat, healthy, witty, kind, outgoing, and was always ready to stand up for people. Medication curbed the delusions but it did not stop the voices."

William continues and explains that the medication soon took its toll on Henry.

"The side effects of the medication took a toll on Hank. He felt like a zombie, lost his personality, gained weight quickly, slept for twelve hours a day, and had to use all of his willpower just to lift his hand to drink a cup of water. My brother was left with a band aid for a gunshot wound."

Schizoaffective disorder is a condition that includes both aspects of schizophrenia and a mood disorder that can either be bipolar disorder or a major depressive disorder. Scientists and professionals are uncertain to whether the disorder is more of a mood or schizophrenic disorder so it's often treated as a hybrid disorder. Schizophrenia on its own can distort the way that an individual thinks, acts, expresses emotions, perceives reality, and relates to others. Mixing that with a mood disorder such as depression or bipolar disorder adds to the mix, throwing feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness, severe mood changes, and many more symptoms.

As William stated above, medication is often like "putting a Band-Aid on a gunshot wound," but Henry soldiered on as their martial arts studio began to thrive. He still kept his training going through multiple types of martial arts, but towards the end of his life he was not able to leave the house due to crippling depression and the voices in his head. William says that Henry "fought every day of his life."

Henry and William are also the nephews of the late country singer John Denver. In addition to remembering his brother, William also took time to advocate for the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation. "It is also very important to me to immediately spread awareness about schizophrenia, bipolar, and suicide prevention." His family, nieces and nephews, close friends, students, and his girlfriend will remember hank. You can read William's entire tribute to Henry "Hank" Deutschendorf and donate to the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation at the link: BBRFoundation.

Newswire: R.I.P. Henry Deutschendorf, baby Oscar from Ghostbusters 2

Henry Deutschendorf, the onetime actor who played baby Oscar in Ghostbusters 2 along with his twin brother William, has died at the age of 29. His death was reported by his brother.

Although they both appeared in the high-profile sequel (and a documentary about it filmed earlier this year), neither of the Deutschendorf twins ever acted again. Instead, they became martial arts teachers and trainers, operating a martial arts center in California. William wrote a remembrance for his brother today, revealing that he’d suffered for several years with schizoaffective disorder—a mental disorder that combines the symptoms of mood disorders with those of schizophrenia—and that he’d ultimately lost his battle with the disease.

Hank was diagnosed in August of 2008. If you knew Hank before his diagnosis, you knew a young man who was upbeat, healthy, witty, kind, outgoing, and was always ready to stand up for ...
