Miniaturized Scoleri Brothers Should Remind You That ‘Ghostbusters II’ Is Awesome
There is a difference between knowing what the best movies of all time are and knowing which ones are you favorites. I’d never argue that “Ghostbusters II” is the greatest film in cinema history, but I’ve long held it up as one of my three favorite movies. If we get to know each other better, maybe I’ll tell you the other two.
I know that there’s a popular argument out there that “Ghostbusters II” is not only the worse of the two films, but some go as far as to say that it’s a straight up bad movie. First of all, I don’t really like those people. Secondly, they’re obviously forgetting the Scoleri Brothers, who were tried for murder and given the chair by Judge Stephen Wexler, played by the always smarmy Harris Yulin.
But you know who didn’t forget the Scoleri Brothers? Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum, who are prominently featuring the ghastly brothers in their upcoming “Ghostbusters II” Minimates line. I don’t have to tell you how cool it is to have miniaturized versions of Vigo the Carpathian and the Titanic’s ghost captain, but maybe I do have to remind you “GB2″ haters about the Scoleri Brothers. Because they’re awesome, and now they’re collectible in that “two in the box, ready to go, we be fast and they be slow” sort of way. Dig it.
