Ghostbusters Cartoons

Posted in 80s, Cartoons, DVD, entertainment, ghosts, horror, remakes with tags , on July 12, 2016 by chrisdsav

There was an announcement a few weeks ago that we are getting a new Ghostbusters cartoon set in the future. This sounds very similar to Dan Akroyds original script for Ghostbusters which was to be set in the future, I’m sure there is no coincidence. Up to this point Ghostbusters cartoons have been hit or miss there is no denying that the Real Ghostbusters was a hit. The Extreme Ghostbusters depending on who you talk to is a hit or miss among fans. It did give us a abetter diverse cast than what we have coming out Friday.

I’m not going to go over the entire show so many other people have done that but I will point out some of the highlights of the show and my favorite episodes, including thoughts on  the Extreme. Sorry Filmmation Ghostbusters I just don’t have enough interest to cover your cartoon based on the 1970s tv show.  The Real Ghostbusters recently returned in an IDW mini series crossing them over with the ongoing story arc.

ALL EPISODES ARE NOW AVAILABLE ON HOME VIDEO however the new set does not contain all the episodes and lacks any bonus material

Collect Call of the Cthulhu

If this is not the BEST episode of the entire cartoon I don’t know what is. The Necronomicon is stolen from the NY public Library the same library seen in the beginning of Ghostbusters the movie. The guys team up with a spell caster from Miskatonic university and actually fight Cthulhu and his cult of worshipers. ” He makes Gozer look like little Mary Sunshine” Its dark its drawn well and it kicks ass go buy it now

Ragnarok and Roll

A guy depressed over losing his girl friend decides to bring about the end of the world with a magic flute than can summon some bad shit. This episode is one of the darkest ever and a touching love story. A great moment is when he comes to his senses with the help of his faithful companion his ex and the guys and cant stop Ragnarok Egon put a plan together and commands his team perfectly

The Night Halloween Was forever

Sam Hain the living embodiment of Halloween comes back to bring about Halloween forever. He appears in two episodes both equally good. They talk about the lore of Halloween and there is some cool imagery. I like the second episode more minus the Jr Ghostbusters who are annoying Sam turns the firehouse into his new headquarters.

The Boogey Man Cometh

A look into the history of Egon Spengler as he was terrified of the Boogey man now BM has a voice so raspy and creepy only Frank Welker ( Megatron, Dr.Claw Slimer) could pull it off. In the second episode Egon gets thrown off a building and nearly dies and has to come to grips with the fall but he also frees the Boogey man from  his prison. Its darker in tone I think and really hits it on all levels.

Extreme Ghostbusters

Over all this show was hit or miss I like the animation at times and its really dark and moody in almost every episode. You have the four kids being trained by Egon and its something we had hoped the 3rd movie should have been about. Alas with the Death of Harold Ramis  we didn’t get that we got ….well see it Friday

Time Life Warner put out a great box set filled with bonus material and the toons just got released on dvd again last week, but be warned its a paltry set compared to what we got in 2009. No word on Extreme Ghostbusters yet.

Stay tuned for another Ghostbuster review later this week.

“Our intended release date for ‘You’re so cool, Brewster!’ was late August 2016, however, due to some transfer issues including technical (which have now been fully resolved thanks to our post-production team) as well as only just received some “rare materials” which we’ve had to incorporate into the doc, the release has now been pushed back to a Halloween release.”

Most Excellent

Posted in 80s, death, DVD, entertainment, sci-fi with tags , on June 7, 2016 by chrisdsav

WOW may not be Horror but sometimes after covering so much horror you need a little comedy sci-fi from the 80’s and what better way to do that than with none other than BILL AND TED EXCELLENT ADVENTURE. As well as the sequel where they encounter Death ….Bogus

Check out the press release for more details.

billtedblu2

 

Read on for all the details and head over to ShoutFactory.com to pre-order your copy!

From the Press Release:
Excellent! History’s favorite time traveling duo land on September 20, 2016 in a deluxe Blu-ray box set from Shout! Factory titled Bill & Ted’s Most Excellent Collection. The bodacious set includes Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, the Blu-ray debut of the sequel Bogus Journey, and is fully loaded with an entire disc of bonus features, including new interviews and commentary, deluxe packaging, a “Wyld Stallyns” branded guitar pick, vinyl stickers for both films, and previously released extras including The Original Bill & Ted, The Most Triumphant Making-Of, Air Guitar Tutorial, The Linguistic Stylings of B&T, From Scribble to Script, The Hysterical Personages of B&T, and radio spots.

Shout! Factory will also have a limited edition set complete with an exclusive lithograph and exclusive action figure of George Carlin’s character “Rufus,” available on shoutfactory.com beginning June 7. NECA, which created the figure, will also have a Bill & Ted action figure set available in July 2016.

The biggest concern for Bill S. Preston, Esq. (Alex Winter) and Ted “Theodore” Logan (Keanu Reeves), two totally excellent dudes from San Dimas, California, has been that their band, the Wyld Stallyns, “will never be a super band until we have Eddie Van Halen on guitar.” But now they’re on the verge of failing history class, and Ted’s father is threatening him with military school. To keep the Wyld Stallyns together, and save the future, they need to deliver an epic history report, so a messenger named Rufus (George Carlin) arrives in a time traveling phone booth to help them out. As they travel through history they pick up some new friends, like the “Bodacious Philosopher” Socrates, “One Very Excellent Barbarian” Genghis Khan, the “Short Dead Dude” Napoleon and “Noah’s Wife” Joan of Arc, and put on one outrageous presentation.

In the sequel Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, the daffy duo travel to Heaven, Hell and points in between as they meet robot versions of themselves, Albert Einstein, the Easter Bunny, and beat the Grim Reaper at a video game. Bogus Journey features an all-star cast including Keanu Reeves (The Matrix), Alex Winter, George Carlin, William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption), and Pam Grier (Jackie Brown). At the time of its release, Roger Ebert described the film as “a riot of visual invention and weird humor that works on its chosen sub-moronic level, and on several others as well, including some fairly sophisticated ones.” In other words, not bogus at all, dudes.

The Exclusive Limited Edition Set Contains:

  • An exclusive, limited edition 8″ tall Rufus action figure by NECA
  • An exclusive, limited edition 18″ x 24″ lithograph of the newly-designed art from artist Paul Shipper (this lithograph will ship rolled, in a poster tube)
  • Two 6″ x 4″ Bill & Ted stickers
  • A Wild Stallyns guitar pick
  • Early shipping to arrive two weeks before the national street date
