Proton Pack Commercial

Judd Apatow is not, as rumors have suggested, involved in Ghostbusters 3. Frankly, I think the whole idea is pretty bad, but why not, I guess. Crystal Skull did not make me hate Indiana Jones - it only deepened my hate for Lucas/Spielberg. I think Apatow could do a good job, but we have to ask ourselves:

What do we really want from this sequel?

I personally don't want to see Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd given the proton packs. There is enough fun between the original Ghostbusters. Besides, wouldn't you rather see what was described by Harold Ramis...

Ramis: Oh, he’s [Akroyd] amazing. [laughs] But my thought was that what works so well about the first two is the mundane-ness of it all. So my notion was that Hell exists simultaneously, and in the same place as our consensus reality. But it’s like a film shutter — it’s the darkness between the 24 frames. When we’re blinking on, they’re off — so we blink alternately with this other reality, which is Hell.
