General Movie (Film for snobs) News Thread


Recommended Posts

Ghostbuster films were selling Stay Puft toys nearly 30 years ago, what’s the issue? Paul Rudd could sell me the skids out of my own shorts though the likeable bastard. 

I did like one comment that in the Ghostbuster universe Stay Puft have done well to have survived the corporate nightmare of having their mascot destroy New York City.

It's actually Irish-Man, not The Irishman.

STOP THE PRESS.

I didn't realise for many years too late that Stay Puft was created especially for the film and didn't actually exist before it. I had assumed it was a real company who had paid to have their mascot be in the movie.

That's a good point actually as in the mid 80's that would've been disastrous for a business, not like nowadays when every 10 minutes something new comes around to focus on, and corporate disasters are forgotten (ala Wolf Cola)

Maybe the Mini-Pufts are the relaunch of the business and they've just got REALLY unlucky that their new product seems to be homicidal little marshmallows?

God, what am I talking about?

It's less about the adorable bastards and more about the million branded products lingering in shot.

Rudd worked at Baskin Robbins in Ant Man and now this. there's no way he isn't getting those sweet ice cream kickbacks.

Fuck this Stranger Things Ghostbusters rip off. The 2016 one was better than the crap I’ve seen this far.

When Ghost busters 2 was released they had ghosts in a can. Literally empty cans. This is a vast improvement.

It was part of a truther movement though, despite standing on a a church and all that we witnessed there were still people (including in New York) who thought it was an elaborate hoax and they were responsible for all the destruction. I'm sure Stay Puft were happy to encourage those rumours.

Oh man, I thought mine escaped when I opened the can.

My can is still sealed to make sure the ghost doesn’t escape. 33 years later.

As a side though, it was party of your Wimpy kids meal, they weren’t selling them like regular toys. And @Mr_Danger I still have a stay puff. My original at that. The point I was trying to get at was they have just taken the let’s make a baby version of something people like because people will lap that shit up that I hate. I imagine our house will have some form of them by Christmas once my daughter sees them because they are damn cute. I just think it’s lazy.
