I saw Ghostbusters in theaters expecting the worst and came out pleasantly surprised. I expected a 3 or 4 out of 10 and got something closer to a 6/10. I felt at the time that the things holding it back were jokes that were too over the top or inappropriate for the moment, a lack of chemistry between the characters, and a strangely paced/written third act. This edit I feel fixed the majority of those the problems I had with this film, and brings it to a solid 8/10 in my book. I still feel like the third act prevents the film from being excellent, but a fan edit can only accomplish so much. Overall very impressed and this will be my go to version of the film. Thanks for your hard work!
I didn't watch Ghostbuster on the theaters, I just got to see the extended version on Blu-ray, which it was said to be better than the one shown on cinemas. So I kinda liked the movie already. I mean, it was not the original, but it has its great moments. But it surely got its bads too.
And TM2YC got that feeling away. With this edit I think it was much more wins. Some over the top scenes, stretched jokes and SNL-like gags were cutted down and made the flow of the movie goes really well. There were better character development and the jokes fell like on character too, not out of place as some did on the original version.
It will surely be my go to whenever I fell like watching it again. Way more enjoyable.
I was very happy with this edit. The pacing has been greatly improved. I noticed a couple of edits that were jarring to me. However, it didn't detract me from my overall enjoyment. I actually didn't mind the original film and even got some enjoyment out of the extended edition. However, this version is far superior to the studio cuts.
I won't waste time explaining how disappointed I was in "Girly Ghostbusters". It was poorly written, too goofy and the CGI was cartoonish. TM2YC expertly removes all the atrocious improv humor and gives these characters more dignity. The flick is still not my cup of tea, but this version is much more bearable.
Serious major props to TM2YC for his editing skill. There are a bajillion cuts and all of them are invisible.
This is by far my favorite fanedit that i have watched. Though i heard allot of negative backlash about the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot, i still decided to give it a shot. In my opinion it's just an awful mess. It's not just the narrative, but the awful jokes and the awful new hip-hop version of the Ghostbusters theme music. Makes me wanna gag.
This version cut out allot of unnecessary filler jokes that made it into the final cut and brought back the original Ray Parker Jr Ghostbusters Theme. Scenes with the main villain of the movie have been cut and restructured so he feels allot more evil and less like a Scooby Doo villain as in the original.
While the cheesy blue CGI ghosts are still there, i gotta admit, i really didn't mind those as much as i did allot of the poor "dialogue" that they gave Leslie Jones' character in the original. The stupid comeback lines and general stereotypical over the top female character that she plays, is one type of character that i simply cannot stand, be it in movies, tv-series or video-games.
However the character isn't Leslie Jones fault, but rather a combination of poor writing and poor editing. With this edit i actually manage to find her character very enjoyable and the dialogue that she has left in this version, which is closer to the original script, is genuinely funny.
I didn't think anything could make me return to this movie again, but this version made me really open my eyes to how much a fanedit can do for a movie. Will diffidently be recommending this edit and can honestly say i enjoyed it enough to want to watch it again.
