Join us to ring in the New Year with the Ghostbusters! This year, we have the fortuitous timing of releasing our regular Monday episode on New Year’s Eve, and we figured - why not record a second commentary on the second Ghostbusters film, where we can actually countdown and celebrate 2019 as they’re celebrating on-screen? Listen for the tone at the top of the show and pause the episode, then cue up Ghostbusters II on your favorite streaming service or format of choice and pause it at the first frame of the Columbia logo. Then, at exactly 10:24pm, hit play on both the podcast audio and the movie. When the clock strikes midnight, everyone’s favorite Carpathian will be weakened by both your and the background extra’s singing of Auld Lang Syne. That’s right, it’ll be midnight in the movie and in real life, pretty mind blowing! Let’s do it!
This week on the show, in place of our Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II commentary, we thought we'd try something a little different as a special treat for everyone. Curl up next to the fire, get Scrooged ready on your favorite home video viewing platform (or listen to us without the film) and get ready for a commentary over the perennial holiday favorite, Scrooged! Yule love it!
Have you picked up Ghostbusters: Answer the Call on digital release? Have you made it through the hours and hours of bonus features and still want more? Don't worry, we've got you covered! Even though there are two fantastic filmmaker commentaries on the extended cut of the film, we've got sort of a "pseudo-commentary" of sorts for you. This isn't scene specific, but Troy and Chris talk about the additions and the changes in the extended cut, as well as what the two hours of deleted and alternate scenes have revealed with the release. And while it's not a proper, in-sync, scene-specific, it does match up to the film Dark Side of the Moon style if you start the episode around the same time as the podcast!
Ghostbusters: Answer the Call is coming to Blu-ray (in a variety of Blu-ray formats) and it's jam-packed with bonus features, so we called in the big guns with Tyler Foster of DVDTalk to break it all down for us. But before the interview, as always a little bit of news including the re-release of Ghostbusters: ATC in theaters, Steve Johnson's new book, and Chris and Troy's revelation that they're about four issues behind on IDW's Ghostbusters International. Join us this holiday weekend, won't you?
This week on the show, Troy and Chris talk through a little bit of a post-film release malaise. With the adrenaline running high leading up to the July release of the film, plus a few very disappointing things that have happened lately, the guys need to talk through some stuff. But first, a little bit of news including the Japanese release of the new film (which includes some cool merch items including 12" figures from Bandai) and a little Ghostbusters International and IDW Comics chat.
Last week's commentary on the original Ghostbusters sure was a lot of fun, wasn't it? Let's do another with the follow-up 1989 sequel Ghostbusters II! Join Troy and Chris as they converse about behind the scenes production tidbits, little known facts that have been stored in their brains for far too long, and watch as they point out some of their favorite moments in the film and discuss. Sync up and follow along, or listen to the boys discuss sans picture, either way let's spend another evening watching a movie together - you don't even have to buy us dinner!
