#038: (Pt. 2) Ghostbusters (2016) / Ghostbusters (1984)

Our GHOSTBUSTERS discussion turns its attention to Paul Feig's new remake, which was made with obvious affection for (and cameos from) the 1984 version, and replicates certain character types and plot points. But it also breaks from it in significant ways we'll discuss, as well as thoughts on the effects, the villains, New York City, blockbuster culture, and more. Plus, Your Next Picture Show, where we share recent filmgoing experiences in hopes of putting something new on your cinematic radar. 

Please share your comments, thoughts, and questions about Oldbusters, Newbusters, or both by sending an email to , or leaving a short voicemail at (773) 234-9730.
