    My theory for the basic plot is below:

    My theory is it's the containment unit breaking down. The guys busted all the ghosts in New York back in the 80's and early 90's, and filled the containment unit to the brim while working themselves out of business. Egon eventually got old and realized he wouldn't be able to maintain the system forever, so he moved out to the middle of nowhere and buried the thing in an old mine like it's nuclear waste. It's now 30 years later, the system is breaking down from lack of maintenance, and ghosts are starting to "leak" out. So a bunch of kids and their Mom who inherited the equipment, and a Ghostbusters enthusiast teacher, are going to have to do something before the containment grid collapses entirely.

    The best time to have made a reboot was around 2001-2005. When the Frat pack were making films like Anchorman and Zoolander. Like Ghostbusters they were all friends and had worked together a lot and had chemistry.

    I don't get why it's so hard for producers to come up with a Ghostbusters plot.
    Have it be 30 or 40 years after the original movie. Ghostbusting has become a legitimate career path, but the equipment and education is expensive.
    Then make the movie about 4 poor bums catching ghosts with garbage from their basement. The whole story is about them outcompeting greedy ghost catching contractors who are trying to keep them out of the ghostbusting union.

    Now I really want Finn Wolfhard to play a character called "Wolf Flintmore". I don't care what it's in, someone make it happen.

    Personally enjoyed Ghostbusters 3 from the new Proton Pack attachments, the background into Ivo Shandor and the secret cult, the awesome creature designs, and just so many other things. My only complaint is the new Ghostbuster to join the group has no lines and only really emotes.

    "You make it too close to the original and everyine says 'Oh, it's just like the original'. Make it too different and they say 'Oh, it's not enough like the original'."
    If only we could discover content that was both new and original. Wouldn't that be something.

    I feel bad for Finn Wolfhard spending his adolescence satisfying the Gen Xers insatiable appetite for nostalgia by acting in movies that are throwbacks and remakes to things he's too young to remember.

      Don't feel too bad for him lol he's not even 20 and he already makes more money than he knows what to do with, as long as he can avoid going the Michael Jackson/Justin Bieber route, where he just goes bat-shit crazy as an adult, he'll have the freedom to do whatever the hell he wants for the rest of his life.

    They already did Ivo Shandor in Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Hopefully they aren't going down that same old road for a third time, I want a new villain. That's why this movie is called Afterlife and not 3, because the game is considered by many to be the third movie and that's Harold's last performance as Egon. At least it's not called 2020 anymore, 2020 being the last four digits of the Ghostbusters phone number as seen on Ecto-1. You guys have it dead on, they are going to do something sappy as hell. Jay, Rich, they want your tears.

    Ghostbusters did not exactly have jokes. It was funny because all the characters are losers, but they all took themselves seriously. They are all terrible people except when they are together. Their idiocies, when combined, becomes greatness. The only normal & successful adult is Sigourney Weaver’s character, which why she is the impossible catch for Venkman.
    Jokes is what ruined the second Ghostbusters movie, and killed the 2016 movie.

    So disappointed with these guys. What's even the point of this video? Shitting on a movie for 15 minutes based on the trailer? Will you just give it a second until they finish the movie, watch it, and then hate it with a passion? Or don't watch it at all and just talk about something else. It would be soo easy to do something useful with the same effort you know, like promoting a great little indy horror movie or something that you liked by talking about it to the 1.1 MILLION subscribers you have! You guys hate Hollywood, we get it. Stop saying it over and over again that's not the reason why people are here. "Rich and Jay Talk About Ghostbusters: Afterlife" No, they don't! They haven't seen the f_ing movie!!!!!!!

      Quite! It's a love letter to the 80s, pure and simple. It feels like people want magic. They want the original Ghostbusters to be in their 30s and 40s again so they can have the impossible thing: Ghostbusters 3 (the movie, not the video game) without having to bring in new people. That's absolutely insane! People grow old, and fans just have to accept that, especially when their own behaviour is ridiculous.

    Best theory I've heard is that the ghosts are coming from the Ghostbusters containment unit they buried in the mine like nuclear waste, and now it's failing because Egon isn't around to maintain it.

    The writers/producers might've been drawing inspiration for that farmhouse and pop-out seat from 'The Real Ghostbusters!' cartoon. Cause in the cartoon Egon learns that a few members of his family dealt with the supernatural, one ancestor created a crystal-based ghost trap while another (who lived on a farm) tried to use magic to fill his well with water but somehow ended up conjuring a sort of ghost-dragon.

    And perhaps the Ghostbusters did become a franchise, just on a far smaller scale than Vankman wanted/imagined on account that without a Big Bad like Gozer to stir up the present ghosts and attract new ones each team has to travel a lot in order to get enough business to make ends meet so while ghost busting does happen it's low enough to stay far in the background and out of the limelight.

    If I'm right then we might see one of these wondering teams show up (in a large bus with the Ghostbusters logo and a license plate labeled 'ECTO-9') at the end to help with the cleanup and perhaps offer some training to help this new group starting out.

    Ghostbusters IS NOT a comedy film. It's a sci-fi flick with snarky people comedically interacting with the absurd situations they're in.

    I'm waiting for the Fandom Menace Crew boycotting Ghostbusters 3, that the Video Game & The Real Ghostbusters is not Canon to this movie, & Bill Murray is the Jake Skywalker of Ghostbusters.


    I like Bill Murray because he appeared in Zombieland got shot by a shotgun and still lived on to be a Ghostbuster even if he didn't want to Beggars can't be choosers and scientists can't be doctors

    I think the mine shaft holds the old ghost containment unit. Environmental Message: The unit is damaged due to fracking and over development of the once small remote town.

    The fact that Finn Wolfhard is a fan of RedLetterMedia and will probably see this video makes 16:04 even more hilarious.
