Who Ya Gonna Call?

Part of this festivities this weekend, for me at least, will be meeting up with a group of friends to see Ghostbusters in the theater and celebrate the film's 30th Anniversary. This will be the first time I'll be seeing the film in a theater (I first saw it on HBO), so it should be a great time. This is one of my all time favorite films, and probably the first one that I was able to quote from memory. To this day, if someone says "Hey, let's watch Ghostbusters." I'm in.

What's nice about this film is that it works like Looney Tunes, in that you can be a kid and find it funny but as an adult there's more levels there to appreciate. It's a kind of movie making that, until very recently, I thought was a dead art. Luckily, Guardians of the Galaxy came along and restored my faith that movies could be enjoyable for all but still be intelligent.

And now I leave you with the very 80's music video for the theme song, by Ray Parker, Jr.
