Still Crazy After All These Years
on July 15, 2016
I saw "Ghostbusters" when it first hit the screens in 1984 and enjoyed myself immensely. I hadn't seen it again until recently and I am happy to say that it holds up well. It's funny, smart and doesn't take itself seriously plus it doesn't let the special effects, which may look sort of cheesy to a younger viewership but it's not 1950s-bad, overwhelm. There are revisionists out there proclaiming that "Ghostbusters" was never as good a movie as people think it was. To them I say "Pooh!" It never claimed to be anything more than a silly comedy and that's what it is, but a very good silly comedy. Murray, Ackroyd and Ramis at their youthful best with a sultry Sigourney Weaver tossed into the mix---what's not to like?.
