In honour of the late Harold Ramis a rewatch felt in order. 30 years on this remains a lot of fun, and it’s a lot ruder and swearier that I remember too!
The Great Bill Murray, the then brilliant Dan Ackroyd and the late Ramis are run out of their scientist jobs after an incident with an unfriendly Ghost. Spotting a niche in the market they set up shop as the in that Iconic Tribeca Firehouse and the ectoplasmic adventures begin….
Yeah I mean it’s great. Slimer looks a little wishy washy compared to modern your modern cgi but I kind of like that about it. Bill Murray is in fine fettle as a kind of maladjusted slacker anti hero, greeting everyone with a sigh and sarcastic comment. Vintage stuff. And the whole thing ends in lazer battle with a Marshmallow Godzilla. What more could people possibly want?
Also where has Rick Moranis been for twenty plus years?
If you really look at it’s silly impossible movie nonsense, buit what bother. Suspension of disbelief I think it’s called. And what about that killer 80s tune? “Who you gonna call?”. The whole thing is great.
"This man has no dick".
"Don’t cross the streams."
