Grandiose spectacle of comedy and special effects

"We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!"

Three decades on, 1984's Ghostbusters is still as hilarious, spooky and marvellous as ever, a real hoot of a horror-comedy engineered by a host of talented moviemakers. Directed by Ivan Reitman (Stripes) and written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, it's a grandiose spectacle of comedy and special effects, enhanced by a pitch-perfect selection of... read more

This science fiction comedy sits atop a decade of 80s classics. Bill Murray plays up the comedy as he, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis lead an all out assault on New York city's paranormal problems. The Stay Puft marshmallow man provides the ultimate ending to an this classic.

Even before it saw the light of the day, even before the idea was conceived, Ghostbusters was destined to become a classic; if not of cinema as a whole, then just of the comedy genre. Given its status, I understand perfectly why some reviewers suddenly become conscious of its popularity and why their fingers tremble when they're about to accept to the opposite. Unlike films, say, Ben-Hur, Casablan... read more

Three odd-ball scientists get kicked out of their cushy positions at a university in New York City where they studied the occult. They decide to set up shop in an old firehouse and become Ghostbusters, trapping pesky ghosts, spirits, haunts, and poltergeists for money.

Hilarious, frightening fun

“‘Ghostbusters’ is a very fun movie to watch, funny + scary = hilarious frightening fun!

The ghosts start where a librarian gets frightened by half invisible ghosts! This makes three unemployed and enterprising university parapsychologists played by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd Harold Ramis team up as the Ghostbusters squad

The movie has lots of horror including a scene where Sigourney Weaver’s character’s eggs jump out the carton and she opens a door to see a hell-like doorway, it’s scary and hilarious at the same time

‘Ghostbusters’ contains charming funny performances from Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis and let’s never forget the song ‘Ghostbusters’, a scary, hilarious masterpiece

“Ghostbusters is sci-fi comedy at its best a film i grew up on it so i may be biased about the how great the movie is but i know it seems that most people also love this movie. The movie ended up becoming such a blockbuster they even made up a couple animated series based on the films that i also watched and loved even the hit song "Who You Gonna Call?" added to the hype/love of the film. The cast is amazing Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, William Atherton, Harold Ramis all great actors and they all did perfect in the movie. 1984 had some great comedies like Grimlins, The Muppets Take Manhattan, Beverly Hills Cop, Revenge of the Nerds, Police Academy but Ghostbusters beats all those by a long shot.

“Even before it saw the light of the day, even before the idea was conceived, Ghostbusters was destined to become a classic; if not of cinema as a whole, then just of the comedy genre. Given its status, I understand perfectly why some reviewers suddenly become conscious of its popularity and why their fingers tremble when they're about to accept to the opposite. Unlike films, say, Ben-Hur, Casablanca and 2001, which are clearly not accessible to all (not to say they're adult films or anything), Ghostbusters is for all ages, and it's only appropriate it should receive one-sided commentary. But, just like any good film, the film, and the fans, should learn to take criticism as well.

The gist is this that a trio of seemingly down on their luck good guys open up a new business: hunt” read more

A classic

“When this movie came out, I was just a kid and, I remember, it was pretty huge. Back then, it was a real event and it was just everywhere. I mean, you had the hit song, the awesome logo, all the merchandise, there was even two different cartoon shows if I recall correctly. Basically, it was inevitable, except maybe if you lived in a dark cave, and I really loved the whole phenomenon. I thought it was just awesome, to see those funny guys with their weird gadgets and those ghosts were still kind of spooky (give me a break… I was maybe 5 years back in those days). Anyway, after all those years, I thought it was time to re-watch it, this time, with Nick, my step-son. Filled up with all these childhood memories, I had some pretty huge expectations but, to be honest, I was rather disappointed” read more

“Who are you gonna call Ghostbusters, from the start to finish this movie is a fun rollercoaster ride for everyone. It is full of funny moments, good acting and good story, and some cool creatures and ghosts. I loved this movie as a child, and still do as an adult. If you have not watched this movie, you should it is a classic 80's movie and for good reason.” read more

Grandiose spectacle of comedy and special effects

“"We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!"

Three decades on, 1984's Ghostbusters is still as hilarious, spooky and marvellous as ever, a real hoot of a horror-comedy engineered by a host of talented moviemakers. Directed by Ivan Reitman (Stripes) and written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, it's a grandiose spectacle of comedy and special effects, enhanced by a pitch-perfect selection of actors and sharp dialogue. Ghostbusters was a box office smash upon release, grossing almost $300 million worldwide from its $30 million budget, and it still feels fresh and original in 2013. With its spot-on tone, absurd plot devices, hysterical one-liners, gut-busting physical humour and over-the-top performances, it's no wonder that movie-goers keep calling on Ghostbusters for superb entertainment.” read more

Bustin' Makes Me Feel More Good with each viewing

“In 1984, there were two horror-comedies that came out at the same time: Ghostbusters, which was directed by Ivan Reitman, and Gremlins, which was directed by Joe Dante. While both were successful, Ghostbusters came out on top for 6 continuous weeks. This might as well be Reitman's best directorial work here. All of the main characters are great; Peter with his wit, Ray with his pep, Egon with his "spores, molds, and fungus", etc. And another thing, this movie gets better the more you watch it. Every second, every joke, everything in it, gets better the more you watch it.

My rating: 9/10” read more

"Bill Murray is great, and the whole movie was a lot of fun. It also came from a time in my life when life was simpler and more fun, and I look at it as such--a pleasant embracing of total nonsense, elevating it to hilarity. Something I needed at that moment, and will always remember this film making me laugh."
