Parachute pants, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Growing Pains, L.A. Gear, Breakfast Club....what do all of these have in common? They all helped define the 80s. Come take a fun "Journey" with me as we revisit the totally radical decade.
How can a film with comedians/actors Billy Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Rick Moranis not be funny? Throw in a bunch of paranormal elements including ghosts and demons, some proton packs, and green slime, and you have yourself a big 80s hit movie.
Ghostbusters is about a group of parapsychologists who lose their jobs at a university because of their work in the paranormal, and decide to go into business together busing ghosts. At first, they're not doing so well, but eventually, they make a name for themselves by catching all of these annoying ghosts and hire a fourth Ghostbuster to help out.
Everything's going great until they investigate a bunch of weird stuff happening at some lady's
I think what makes this movie so great, apart from the funny acting, are all the memorable moments and lines. You've got the angry Stay Puft Marshmallow Man rumbling through NY City. The fantastic special effects - especially the cool proton packs. And then there's the infamous line: "I am the Keymaster, are you the Gatekeeper?"
Interesting little known fact: Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis originally wrote the movie with Eddie Murphy and John Belushi in mind.
Who you gonna call???
