Everybody loves "The Avengers." Last year's superhero epic made a billion dollars and was full of crazy action and hilarity from a cast of well-written and acted, unique characters.
You know what that reminds me of? 1984's "Ghostbusters." A horror/comedy epic that did pretty well itself. When you think about it, they're actually pretty similar. Not accusing Joss Whedon of ripping off Ivan Reitman or anything, but take a look for yourself.
