While Ghostbusters was always a child of its age, a lovechild of the 1980's, one element of the movies that definetly ages the films is the technology used by the intrepid Ghostbusters to bust them ghosts. In the 1980's as the cold war was slowly defrosting a lot of people were still surprisingly ignorant of exactly what nuclear energy was. Yet in today's post 9/11 world virtually everyone has heard most of the nuclear buzzwords like warhead, coolant, Plutonium, isotope, fallout, half life etc. And the reality is in todays world if the Gostbusters had ran aroud New York City with a nuclear particle accelerator on each of their backs they would be arrested as terrorists. But its only a movie right.

When it became clear that Sony and Columbia were moving ahead wit Paul Feigs controversial all female reboot, the few supporters of the Bridesmaids and Spy director argued a fresh vision, a modern reimaging of an old franchise. Casting four comedic actresses in the lead roles was certainly a step in that direction, but can the director and his crew continue to push the envelope from beyond the shadow of the original as Feigs supporters would have us believe...

Well, lets compare the old to the new...

In all honesty what Paul Feig has tweeted so far isn't enough of a step out of Ghostsbusters shadow... The bands of horizontal orange striping going across the costumes is bad idea as any fashion expert will confirm, especially when worn by a 'larger' actress like Melissa McCarthy, and new look proton packs actually look less advanced, technologically than their 1984 ancestors.

All in all, very few changes, but what has been changed probably shouldn't have!

The now looks old. Seriously, I saw that photo somewhere else and took it to be a steampunk themed, fan built project.
