About 2 weeks ago videos and memes of Annie Potts, who plays the iconic role of Janine Melnitz, the Ghostbusters cranky receptionist hit the interwebs. Except for here as I’m retro blogging. That’s a real thing right? This isn’t reused and some computer generated footage of Ms. Potts as Janine from GHOSTBUSTERS. Or Annie Potts kinda looking like Janine selling us DirecTV in the 2000s. She is better than that, Ghostbusters is above… Read More

On January 16, 2019 Ghostbusters Facebook account posted a teaser trailer for at the time believe or not a new Ghostbusters movie! Then known as Ghostbusters 2020, later Rust City; (during filming, because no one would know it was suppose to be Ghostbusters related!) For no particular reason I never wrote a post about it, thoughts, or feelings about a new Ghostbusters movie written by Gil Kenan and Jason Reitman. And directed… Read More

On August 6, 2019, posted at Ecto-Containment on August 7, Ghostbusters International was able to recreate (Ecto-Containment Blog Post) part of the original Official International Ghostbusters Club, thanks to Robert Maxwell Barbieri. (Facebook) I figured that would be it unless TECHPAC or “No Ghosts,“ the quarterly newsletter surfaced. On Halloween and into early November (“that’s my fault”) Robert reached out with a couple of new pieces around the Official Ghostbusters Fan Club. An article… Read More

Remember that time over at GBI when they wrote about the official Ghostbusters Fan Club? (GBI Blog Post, June 8, 2014) Five years later they, (well I did) wrote about the official international Ghostbusters fan club again. For a very good reason. It started this summer when the king of the ghostheads, Peter Mosen. (Facebook) had been taking and sharing photos from his career and collecting. One or more of the shared photos… Read More

Backposting this almost 2 months later for reasons. On June 8, 2019, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Ghost Corps, and Wizard World celebrated Ghostbusters 35th anniversary with Ghostbusters Fan Fest! (GBI Search Tag) The “I Ain’t Afraid of No Toys panel” was an in-depth look at Kenner’s The Real Ghostbusters toy lines. With Kenner toy designer, Mark Boudreaux.

This past weekend I began reviewing the theatrical version of  Ghostbusters: Answer The Call. I realized without much planning for this one review, I couldn’t review a nearly 2 hour movie in a day, not even two. I’ve been watching Ghostbusters: Answer The Call on and off when I could for about the last five days. That seems a little much. In the last two days as I had been reviewing Ghostbusters: ATC… Read More

In recent weeks I’ve written about Ghostbusters being back in their saddles, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 17, 2017) and The Ghost Busters. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 26, 2017) Those blog posts and episode reviews were leading to this site update. With pages to the major parts of the Ghostbusters franchise, one hadn’t been created. That was in part because I hadn’t written much about Ghostbusters (2016)/Ghostbusters: Answer The Call at Ecto-Containment. It seemed better… Read More

Before their could ever be episodes of The Real Ghostbusters something had to be created to show how an animated Ghostbusters series would work. What would the characters look like, what about their personalities? How about the environment around them? What would the equipment look like? What would the ghosts look like? Prior to September 1986 when an animated spin off was a logical progression (or so it would seem) to the blockbuster Ghostbusters a… Read More
