The Rick Roll is beyond played out at this point. I like the second version more, but it is a little obscure. Something more contemporary might work better for a mass audience. I would go either with Shaun of the Dead ("You're a zombie, you're dead and ya hate it") or Nightmare Before Christmas (the Marylin Manson version of "This is Halloween).

The fact that the Rick Roll is played out is kind of the joke. It serves the same purpose as the original fart - it's a juvenile prank.

No we can't, it's a fart gag. A chair can be a fart gag like in this 1967 Jacques Tati film...


...and I'm not going to start calling that a "chair gag".

Exactly. That's why the rick roll works, and why the fart joke works - it's a juvenile prank. It's a character moment.

That was a really funny scene. I'd call that a fart gag since the humor comes from the chair sounding like a fart. GB specifically says it's a queef and not a fart in the dialogue. But considering literally everybody else here has called it a fart gag, I'll let it go.

Besides, we all agree that your replacements of the queef joke are superior so it's a moot point, anyway!

Hey, if it makes you laugh instead of wince, good for you. 

To me, it is not funny and swings the opposite way, ending up worse than the original fart.

A little less guff in this thread would be appreciated (Pun intended).




There is one line in the second trailer I'd maybe like to use but unless I've missed them, the trailers are not on the blu-ray. Wierd, it's almost as if somebody didn't didn't like them or something?

This is a long shot... but has anybody purchased a blu-ray recently that had the 2nd GB16 trailer on it?

I can confirm it's not on mine (US BD), sorry.

Thanks for checking. I think I've probably got the same BR though, it's Region-Free and has the FBI logo on it, rather UK specific warnings. However, the line I wanted didn't work out the way I'd hoped, so I couldn't use it.




After much audio work (which I really hadn't planned to do on this edit, but I can't help myself :D ) here is the first trip out in the "Science mobile" with the horrid Fallout Boy music gone and the classic Ghostbusters music put in it's place, plus all new SoundFX (There was nothing clean/useable from the movies own soundFX). I've included 30-seconds of the scene leading into it for context...


(Password: fanedit.org)

- After Erin politely tells her horrible boyfriend to f**k off, Holtzman no longer immediately embarrasses Erin in front of him by playing a prank on her (That's not what friends do).
- Added classic GB theme. A mix of vocal and instrumental versions
- Replaced all SoundFX between 00.42 and 01.19 including siren, engine, tyres, street noise, crowds, clothing, footsteps etc
- Re-arranged and edited shots in montage to match rhythm of the new music. Removed awkward "Let's go" scene. Now they just get down to business.

For "fun" here is just the soundFX I added...

Nice -  better than I hoped it could be! I used to think the theatrical lines from. Patty about that being inappropriate artwork for that vehicle's purpose was better but I like the extended version about the ghost being on the car (same joke, more direct)  the way you've cut the scene. 

Anyway, glad to see that song gone (Didn't mind the Walk The Moon version so much)...  Now all seems right with the world (except for the total collapse of western governments but that's hard to fix with a Ghostbusters edit).

Sorry but no for two reasons: 1. It's its own thing, different car, different sound. 2. I can't be bothered even if I thought it was a good change :D . It would be easy enough to change for this one sequence, now that I've got all the other sounds replaced but a total nightmare for the entire rest of the movie.

Im loving all of these changes so far, man. This edit is killer. You edited in the old theme perfectly and I can now watch that scene without cringing.

What member of the GB16 team thought it would be a good idea to have the film frame rotate during one shot? Needless to say, I've un-rotated it for this fanedit.

This sounds like a good idea. I seen this in theaters and was unimpressed.
