I'm doing work but listening to online TV and movies in the background. I eventually realized I should only watch movies and TV I've already seen because I can't quite put all my attention to it. I could list the ENORMOUS amount of stuff I've watched since starting this project, but right now I'm watching Ghostbusters, which I hadn't seen in a while.
The main bad guy (besides the ghosts) is the EPA who's trying to shut down their containment unit. Granted, the EPA does a lot of dumbass stuff. But really, it WOULD be a criminal violation of a lot of things to have an unregulated nuclear reactor in the middle of Manhattan. It's one thing when they crossed the beams to defeat the Stay-Puf marshmallow man, but they had the nuclear stuff just for their status quo business operations, and that's irresponsible.
Also, speaking of the marshmallow man, when Xuul said that they themselves would choose the vehicle of their destruction, and (Egon I think?) said to keep their minds completely blank to avoid causing the apocolypse, but then Ray thought of the marshmallow man and they got mad at him...well, that was a poorly conceived plan. It takes monks their whole lifetime to truly empty their mind of thoughts--how long did they think four random dudes would be able to accomplish that? Also, thinking of absolute nothingness would be a pretty efficient way to destroy everything in existence. That's kind of what absolute nothingness is. This part never sat well with me, so I thought I'd get it off my chest.
