For me, Ghostbusters has deep roots in my childhood. It belongs to a time in which the writing was sharp but the picture quality less so; a time in which you could only sate your Ghostbusters craving via VHS (oftentimes discovering that some annoying person had not rewound said videotape to the beginning after use). A time in which I would declaim, with absolute conviction, that Peter Venkman was my future husband.

In four and a half billion years of existence there have been no creatures more dramatic or scarier. Whether they would be as popular if they existed today and were stomping down the high street, I don't know, but they're perfect for films because they are more spectacular, more awesome than most animals today, more like monsters, and yet they are real.

Peter Jackson Is Transforming Into the Next George Lucas

It would seem, then, that Peter Jackson is now George Lucas's padawan in the sense that they both make visual-heavy, fantasy/sci-fi trilogies that are popular with people and make money - the art of it doesn't come into it.

You remake Girl With The Dragon Tattoo because millions of people can't be arsed to read subtitles.

There's nothing to interpret.

Regardless of what today's teenage audiences make of TRON, I appreciate its contribution to computer generated imagery, which has made and will continue to make many other brilliant movies possible. I forgive it for Jar Jar Binks. But only just.
