"Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!" Bill Murray rules.

8 years ago


The original Ghost Busters of course still stands up, and for movie buffs, there's nothing quite like seeing those original old school effects. I think they're part of the fun, and though we can do a lot more today, that doesn't necessarily means we can do better. Still quite good, I must say. It's in some ways a purer film than the new one, not just because it's not built on the bones of the past, but because the characters a more clearly archetypal. Brain - Heart - Mouth - I wonder what Eddie Murphy's version of Winston would have been like, given an expanded role. But as it is, it's iconic, and eminently watchable.

Characters, cast, sets, props, dialogue, plot, sound, music, Bill Murray… Some films are timeless. Some films are perfect. This is one of them.
