Umm and what form did Gozer take? Oh yeah, that super scary Pillsbury Doughboy parody called the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man....

Give me a break! Yeah at certain points towards the build up to the climax the movie takes a slightly serious tone. But the payoff is a giant Marshmallow Man! Which deliberately undermines any pretense of seriousness that came before.
In the original concept for Gozer, the Marshmallow Man was only supposed to be an "intermediate" form it took based on Ray's thoughts before morphing into a scarier form. This form was never done because of budget constraints, but there are some storyboards for it. That being said, personally I think the existing film works. It's a silly moment to be sure, but I think it works.

To be fair, he does eventually make some rather creepy faces, too.

It's only because the movie is silly that it works and was a hit. It's a comedy.

That's why I'd much rather see a remake / reboot than another sequel....

....A Ghostbusters III that trots out four fat guys in their 60s as a cursory nostalgia bone to the fans ... the idea really doesn't do anything for me, and I think it runs a very big risk of becoming unintentional self-parody.
I have a very strong feeling that this will end up a la Star Trek: Generations... twenty minutes to a half an hour in, the new guys will be the focus of the picture... and the only ones in any future films.

Aykroyd states as much in the many, many interviews he's mentioned the most recent project in the past few years.

This is a win-win, because it is essentially a reboot but the torch passing allows Sony to include the previous two films in whatever this ends up being... a trilogy at worst, a new series at best.

Of course...

As long as Aykroyd doesn't end up getting crushed by a bridge it's all good.

Personally, regardless of how much of a reboot the film is, I hope they turn both the silly and the drama elements up to 11. There is nothing better in fiction than the blending of melodrama and cheese and Ghostbusters is perfect for that style. They probably won't go as far as I want, but making the film in the style of a silly 80's comedy won't fly these days. I expect Ghostbusters 3 to be most similar in tone to The Avengers.

Anyone remember that sequel series to Ghostbusters made in the late 90s? I thought that was a good "Pass the torch" type of story that could be used for GBIII.

Exactly the point I was making. It was a comedy, thats why it was successful and still fondly remembered. Any new Ghostbusters, whether sequel or reboot, that ignores that would be foolish. It was not a supernatural thriller with some comedic moments. It was full comedy. Which is why I love it.

Ghostbusters Extreme. And yes, it was about as good a pass the torch idea as can be done.

Did Hell just freeze over. I demand a scene where Hell actually freezes over in the movie

Now that Bill Murray's in, it's definitely happening, and with him on board, I'd say it has a much better chance of success.

Sorry folks, looks like the linked article used a satirical news site as their source.

Look.
