Ghostbusters Game Keeping Ray Parker, Jr.

The developers of the upcoming Ghostbusters game thought about getting a new band to redo Ray Parker, Jr.’s theme song.

“We got booed out of the place,” Goss said. “People were really against it, going, ‘You can’t do that, there’s only one song for Ghostbusters!’ It was incredible. So we were like, okay, we won’t mess with the Ray Parker Jr. song then.”

Godzilla In Name Only

Zilla is Toho Studios’s official name for the star of the 1998 TriStar Pictures film Godzilla.

Created from a French nuclear test, Zilla is a mutated iguana. Before Toho officially dubbed the creature Zilla, many fans, who did not care for the reimagining of Godzilla for the Centropolis film, developed several nicknames to differentiate its title character from the “original” Godzilla. These nicknames included American Godzilla, Fraudzilla, Deanzilla (because of writer/producer Dean Devlin), Trizilla (because of TriStar Pictures), and most popularly “GINO” or Gino, an acronym for Godzilla In Name Only.

Better Late Than Never: Harold And Maude

To someone who writes about movies for a living, this is horrifying news, akin to having spoken the English language for a lifetime without knowing the word “as” was available for use. So if you’d like, please retroactively insert a Harold And Maude reference into about half of the independent or pseudo-independent films I’ve written about for the past 10 years.

Scott Tobias finally gets around to seeing Harold & Maude.
