If the first GB movie was rereleased in theaters for the anniversary,would you guys like to see new special effects in it? I would like to see it if they were high quality,and done properly.It also wouldn't hurt if the original film was still made available too. wink

In my mind I really don't feel that the story would change if they updated the special effects. If they did I would rather they cleaned up some of the existing effects rather than put in new ones. But one would have to question if they did that would Ghostbusters loose some of its luster? Sometimes the best ways are the old ways and while I feel that George Lucas did a great job adding in the new stuff to the Original trilogy, doing the same to Ghostbusters would make it seem different to me. It would just be missing a piece of the puzzle. But what the hell do I know, I'm simply a God who has taken the form out of an image conjured up in the mind of one Raymond Stantz.....that being a hundred foot mashmallow man, so what do I know? lol smile

i wouldn't want "new" effects, but older ones cleaned up. not any over the top CGI, but just certain things.

Have you guys EVER seen the GB DVD???
The special effects were cleaned up & redone...
If the GBs were re-released in theatres I would like to see them exactly like that

They don’t just call them The Real Ghostbusters for no reason! Take a look at Take Two, Citizen Ghost, The Ghostbusters Omnibus Timeline, THE GHOSTBUSTERS FACT LIST, and RGB Truly Canon with the Movies?, and you’ll see why!

I'd only want the streams re-done in some scenes. All the other effects are great...but the streams reeeeeeeeeally bug me in some scenes. Especially when they start crossing the streams near the end, they just look so cheap to me.

The matte paintings bothered me the most. It looked like NYC was frozen in time, lol.

i would like to see the scene where stay puft steps on a church redone, as well as the far off shot from the ground of the guys blasting at stay puft, where the streams straight.

I agree with d_osborn. The Stay Puft church scene didn't look right.

One thing that always bothered me was the visual affects for the stop motion animation scenes with the Terror Dogs. They just looked so cheap and tacky...as if they were paste on the screen and not a part of the background and foreground.
