We really want to get on board with Paul Feig’s reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise. We really, really do.
But for this journalist, the visual aesthetic of the movie is just so very poor. Even when not compared to the vastly superior original, the proton packs, Ecto 1, even the jumpsuits all look really dull and uninteresting – and definitely not iconic.
So, along comes some unknown photoshop genius who has taken the original image of the four new Ghostbusters (released last week) and removed the orange stripes from the jumpsuits and positioned the team in front of the 1984 Ecto 1. And the result? Well, as far as I’m concerned, it looks excellent.
Judge for yourself, the original image is above and the retouched is below.
