And the answer is absolutely YES!

I won't get caught in the main synopsis of the movie, I'm guessing you know the story and the actors. If not you should be asking your self where have you been the last twenty years or so...now lets get into it!

Video Quality on this release is in full 1080p using the MPEG-4 codec on a BD-50 (50 gigabyte dual-layered Blu-ray Disc). This is a great catalog release. It is so refreshing to see a studio not attempt tweaking the original image with digital noise reduction and edge enhancement. This is a faithful to the source transfer. Clarity and resolution is where this transfer shines, all the little signs, switches, knobs and so forth are all clearly defined displaying an excellent depth of field. Colors are nicely saturated and accurate displaying good natural hues.

As for the Bonus Materials: these are presented in Standard Definition 480i and High Definition 1080i with Dolby Digital 2.0 sound.

* BD-Live - Keep in mind that BD-Live requires the user to be on a "Profile 2.0" capable Blu-ray Disc Player and connected to the Internet to access online content via the studio (in this case Sony). Once online you can access content such as downloadable trailers for other Sony Blu-ray Disc release upcoming and already available. Title specific content in this case is actually included. 2 different Ring tones are available which are just dialogue from the film. Standard rates apply to get these I'm sure, nothing is 100% free these days.

* "Cinechat" - This BD-live application allows viewers to chat with friends and family while watching the film. A easy to understand tutorial is included.

* "Slimer Mode" is a Blu-ray exclusive feature that is using Bonus View which requires the user to be on a "Profile 1.

I already have the 25th anniversary blu-ray edition of this movie, but I was wondering if the 4k would really upgrade the video quality which is not that great on the earlier edition, and this newer edition (at $14.99) was cheap enough to experiment with. I do not have any of the very expensive 4k equipment but the 4k is advertised that it will improve a regular blu-ray. Side by side with the earlier blu-ray version, I would say that there is a noticeable upgrade in the foreground of the scene and some shots come out very clear. It is enough of an improvement that I am keeping this one, but don't get rid of your earlier editions because this one does not have any features. The 25th anniversary blu has all the original dvd features plus some forgetable new features such as info on the Ghostbusters video game. So I am keeping them both. Amazon has the unfortunate habit of using all 555 reviews which go back to the dvd version which I find very confusing when I am trying to decide if an upgrade is worth it. As to the movie itself, it is still funny almost 30 years later, which is a testament to all the great actors, writer and the director, so I can't give it less than a five.

It is said that the role of Peter Venkman was originally written for John Belushi, but we'll never know how he would have performed in the role. Fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum Bill Murray stepped into the role and ran away with the movie. Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd fit into the story like a glove in Ivan Reitman's masterpiece, but Bill Murray steals his every scene - which means most of the movie - with a performance full of dead-pan, ironic, world-weary, been-there-done-that hilariousness.
He has a sarcastic remark for every occasion, and the audience is the only one in on the joke every time.
When prospective girlfriend Dana Barrett (played by Sigourney Weaver, who gets a plum opportunity to show off her comedic skills) gets possessed by an evil demon, she is transformed into a slinky seductress. Bill Murray has come over to her apartment and in his hilarious dead-pan manner lets the audience know that he recognizes all is not normal with Ms. Barrett. As hilarious and sarcastic as Venkman is, he's at least a gentleman of sorts and doesn't take advantage of the situation when the demon tries to seduce him.
"Do you want this body?" Sigourney-demon asks him.
He pauses for a perfect beat before replying:
"Is this a trick question?"
The special effects don't look like the CGI visions that have been on screen for a couple of years (this was 1984) yet they're part of the fun. Even so, the special effects serve the story rather than up-staging it, and when the movie was initially released I remember howling with the audience after the first special-effect ghost "attacks" Bill Murray and leaves him on the floor in a glistening mess.
"He SLIMED me!" Venkman yelled, and we laughed our heads off.

Still a classic after 30 years now
Great screenplay, Great Directing and of course Great acting from
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and the very sad passing of Harold ramis
i was shocked when i heard he passed away
Rick Moranis is Great aswell
every scene is still Hilarious, Hilarious comedy Duo from Bill murray and Dan Akyroyd
the Visual effects of the Ghosts and Apparations are amazing aswell from Richard Edlund
who created his first special/visual effects company when working on Ghostbusters

for this 30th Anniversary release Columbia pictures have mastered the film in 4k blu-ray technology
with this new 4k treatment the picture quality looks beautiful no Doubt about it
much better picture quality than the 2008-2009 blu-ray release
the Audio quality is the same 5.1 Master audio mix

Columbia pictures have also added a all new 25mins interview with Ivan Reitman & Dan Aykroyd
on the special features of this 30th Anniversary WHO YOU GONNA CALL
they just talk about the Legacy of Ghostbusters and give recollections
on the making of the film, Hardcore fans will love it.
and to my surprise all the old extras from the 2008 blu-ray release are on this new 30th Anniversary blu-ray
the old Making of featurette from the dvd release and on the set 1984 TV featurette
and the special effects featurette with Richard Edlund
the Deleted scenes from the film, plus all new Alternatve TV scenes for the TV broadcast
everything from the dvd release and the 2008 blu-ray release
have been carried over to this new 30th Anniversary release
plus the picture in picture Interviews from the 2008 blu-ray is on this release aswell
Columbia pictures really did give this film respect for the fans for sure.
scrap the old DVD release and the 2008 blu-ray and get this 30th Anniversary blu-ray
Definitely worth the money i Gave it 5 stars for sure
