"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.

" Notes: 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 it correctly. Basically, it was inevitable, except maybe if you lived in a dark cave, and I really loved the whole phenomenon.

"OCTOBER 24 Extra: Such a classic. Sometimes, you never realize just how many sexual innuendos are in a seemingly harmless movie until you watch it with someone who is too young to understand it, but questions what is meant to by something said. Apparently the MPAA was very liberal with their ratings system in the 80s, because that is not the first PG movie I've watched that should have received a PG-13 rating (a rating which was actually created in 1984).
