Ghostbusters Revealed

A person who claims to work in post production (I'm guessing at Sony) has posted a breakdown of the new Ghostbusters on Reddit, which you could see here but not any more. 'Deep Throat' as they shall be known claims to have seen an early version of the movie and describes the plot from start to finish and reveals details of the original cast members cameo appearances.


Obviously there is no way of confirming the authenticity until the movie is released but if it's real the reboot will be terrible. Now, Deep Throat claims to have seen an early version which means improvements could have been made. It's also possible that because it's a quick summary that's poorly written it makes the movie sound worse than it is, especially considering most of the comedy is either absent or lost. Deep Throat may just not like the movie or the fact that it's a reboot and this is his way of showing it, maybe even sabotaging it.


Ever since I heard Sony was rebooting Ghostbusters I've been on the fence about it. I definitely think they should stop rebooting classics, maybe this movie will be good because it's not a carbon copy, but I doubt it will be as good as the original. Having said that, I will probably go and see the reboot, even if it's just to see how it compares. The comedy of Paul Feig is very different to that of Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman. I'm not sure how well Feig's comedy will sync with Ghostbusters but I'll give him a chance. The post on Reddit, although interesting, has done nothing to change my opinion.

Breathe Easy: Average Guy Movie Review

Breathe Easy is an independent film, shot in multiple locations throughout ten countries. This global accomplishment took more than 20 directors roughly a year to make. Strange clouds have appeared in the sky across the globe and people are starting to behave in very strange ways. Governments are scrambling to deal with the crisis, but without knowing the cause, what can they do except...Breathe Easy? 



In a time when Hollywood studios can afford to film all over the world, it's easy for us to become indifferent. But an independent film shooting in ten countries including the UK, US, Australia and Hong Kong is an incredible achievement. And the results speak for themselves. Instead of focusing on one region or group during a global disaster - with small updates of events occurring elsewhere - the action is shared pretty much equally across all locations. It's an interesting look at how different people react to the same situation. Some will run, some will hide. Some will just ge…

Blade Runner: Black Out 2022 | Moustache Reaction

If you weren't excited about Blade Runner 2049 before, you certainly should be now. The longest and most informative of the three shorts, Black Out 2022 tells the story of a major event that had global consequences.
The roll out of the Nexus 8 - a new replicant with full human lifespans - saw the rise of human supremacy movements. These groups used the Replicant Registration database to identify and kill replicants. In response, a group of replicants sought to destroy the records, their actions led to the prohibition of their kind causing many to go into hiding.
Black Out 2022 is a brilliant piece of filmmaking! Not only is it well written, but the use of multiple animation styles make it both visually stunning and perfectly grounded in the Blade Runner universe. This spectacular short is a perfect bridge between Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049.
Don't forget to check out the other two Blade Runner 2049 shorts:
