Tor.com (as opposed to giant slors dot org) wrote and shared the Hugo Awards finalists for various science fiction media and respective categories. Ghostbusters: Answer The Call is in the category of “Best Dramatic Presentation – Long Form” Which is personally interesting as I never think of Ghostbusters being ‘typically’ dramatic.

Ghostbusters: ATC is up against genre movies such as Arrival, Deadpool, and (Star Wars) Rogue One. Interestingly all those movies are also competing with Netflix series, Stranger Things and Hidden Figures, a movie based off a book, which was written because of real people who could have worked here if GBI had been established in 1965.
Although The Real Ghostbusters ran for 7 seasons on Saturday mornings and 5 days a week from September 1986-October 1991. We think Netflix (US) added too many episodes to season 1 and it threw the whole section into animated chaos! :p
A brand new Ghostbusters 5D experience is coming to Northern Germany, the location of Heide Park (German Language) in 2017.
What will this Ghostbusters experience be like? Nothing like reading about it here, that’s for sure!

Feel like the film heroes who protect the world from ghosts.
Beetlejuice has been one of those higher class ghosts that have been a thorn in our Belt Gizmos since the early 1990s. For the longest time that ghost who talks a lot had been oddly silent, going off the protection grid. Recently Beetle…resurfaced in Great Britain.
Ghostbusters International has had an Ectomobile workshop manual for the last few decades. It has been brought to our attention since the jingle of the year 2000 we should make our expertise available to franchises and car enthusiasts. Like a great peace talk debate, (over delicious sponsored food and beverages) how we were going to accomplish this was up on a lift for years. At least since our 30th anniversary the solution was already in our libraries.
This past weekend I began reviewing the theatrical version of Ghostbusters: Answer The Call. I realized without much planning for this one review, I couldn’t review a nearly 2 hour movie in a day, not even two. I’ve been watching Ghostbusters: Answer The Call on and off when I could for about the last five days. That seems a little much.
In the last two days as I had been reviewing Ghostbusters: ATC I was putting it on Ecto-Containment along with accompanying screen caps. Which thankfully for a multi-hour movie I didn’t have to create myself, as I normally would with animated episodes.
I reviewed Ghostbusters: Answer The Call in 4 pages. My original notes without pictures was at least page 17 halfway through. This review is similar to how I review The Real Ghostbusters episodes. I added or changed categories to fit Ghostbusters: Answer The Call.
Ghostbusters: Answer The Call was chosen favorite movie of the year! While that would be cool enough, kids voted Melissa McCarthy (Dr. Abby Yates) as their favorite movie actress. Chris Hemsworth (Kevin) was voted as their favorite movie actor.
That’s right Ghostbusters is better than both Captain America: Civil War and Star Wars: Rogue One! 😀
On June 28, 2017 Ghostbusters: Answer The Call is going to the 43rd Saturn Awards. This prestigious award in part honors science fiction, fantasy, and horror movies. This year Ghostbusters: ATC has been nominated in two categories. For Best Fantasy Film Release and Kate McKinnon for Best Supporting Actress In A Film. They’re competing against other favorites in the genre.
