TOO HOT TO HANDLE: Remembering Ghostbusters II is the definitive feature length documentary on the making of Ghostbusters II, and is the companion film to the documentary CLEANIN' UP THE TOWN: Remembering Ghostbusters.
In the 1980s a bunch of underground cartoonists parodied a popular doll. The resulting commercial product tapped into the international kid zeitgeist. That young generation felt that this product spoke to the revulsion they had for the corporate pop culture that was being fed to them.
A feature length documentary on the legacy of Police Academy (1984) and its sequels. The Police Academy movies were a mainstay in the comedy genre of the 1980s and early 1990s, spawning six sequels and two television series.
Ghostheads is a documentary that explores the extreme side of the Ghostbusters fandom, and looks back at the impact the franchise has had on the world over the past three decades. Through interviews with key cast and crew, including Dan Aykroyd, Ivan Reitman, Ernie Hudson and many more, as well as with Ghostbusters fans all over the world, Ghostheads presents countless humanizing stories that will connect with audiences about comradery, overcoming obstacles, and that no one should ever feel alone or isolated. Ghostheads will show what really separates a fandom from the rest. Every Ghosthead is unique. Every Franchise is its own.
I knew this movie was like a Ghostbusters version of 'Heart of an Empire', but I wasn't expecting to get right-in-the-feels. As a casual fan of the franchise (and a huge Star Wars fan) it's interesting to look into a different fandom window. What makes Ghostbuster fans unique is that they put their *own* names on their uniforms, chew on that for a bit. Packed with cast and crew interviews, the weaving of the stories is handled very well. Great doc! You can keep reading this or you can just check it out for yourself on Netflix. Go on. Go see it.
