Who You Gonna Call?
Ghostbusters is just one of those films that even since it release 27 yeas ago, it is still funny and you can’t say that about many films these days. With its sometimes dry humour and outrageously funny take on three college professor going into the Ghostbusters business, it really was something new at the time and this showed in the box office takings.
So back in 1984 the world was introduced to Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) and their battle to save Dana Barret (Sigourney Weaver) and Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) who have opened the Gate of Hell after being possessed.
Hysterical daft, great ones liners and as I mentioned earlier something new for cinema audiences to enjoy and who can’t forget the amazing catchy theme tune from Ray Parker Jr.
The Boys Are Back In Town!
Five years after we had all enjoyed the Ghostbusters “Savin’ The Day” they were back trying to save the Big Apple from an underground flow of paranormal goo which was threatening the city and the world, again
The team was back together and bustin’ ghosts again, though if memory serves me right, Ghostbusters II wasn’t as popular as the first, but it still had the same feel as the original and it was great to have those crazy character back on the big screen for another outing.
Though may be cinema goers weren’t really in to the feel of the movie any more, it came at the end of the 80′s and the 90′s were just around the corner, but for me, I still love both of the movies and most of the time one can’t be watched without the other straight after it
Ghostbusters 3 – Gossip Or Is It Going To Happen?
I’ve heard so many rumours of a third Ghostbusters movie but I’m never sure if it is going to happen or not, there has been mention of the main characters handing over to a new generation of Ghostbusters, true or not, I’m not sure.
I would really like to see a third Ghsotbusters, even it just nicely ends with a trilogy, though as we all know Hollywood does have a terrible tendency to keep remaking films! (Please Stop remaking Everything)
Ghostbusters – It’s A Classic!
So this is my selection for this weeks Classic Film Friday, it’s fun, it’s daft, it’s comic genius and best of all it’s one of those movies from my childhood that keeps looking at me from my DVD collection and saying “Come on, stick me in the DVD player and give those chuckle muscles a work out!”
