SNMR 5.20: "Ghostbusters"

PLOT SUMMARY: Three scientists get kicked out of their university only to go into business for themselves. Their business: capturing and containing paranormal spirits -- ghosts. Amidst all of the weird things happening, the Ghostbusters discover an ancient secret society whose god is about to destroy New York City. Now it's up to the Ghostbusters to defeat Gozer and her minions and close the entryway to this dimension.

MY OPINION: I remember watching this movie in the theaters when I was a kid. It was funny then, and it's still funny now, 24 years later.

Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis came up with a frightfully original and subtly witty script. They, along with Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver,
Rick Moranis, Annie Potts and Ernie Hudson are excellent. I believe you can tell that the actors had a lot of fun shooting this picture because it comes across in their performances. The scenes with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man are comical yet pay homage to the classic monster movie flicks of the 1950's and 1960's. This is a film that at 105 minutes, seems too short.

Excellent, fun movie. Recommended viewing, especially if you haven't seen it in a while.

**** out of *****
