Just watched this last night on Blu Ray for the umpteenth time - classic film

Venkman: Janine, someone of your calibre should have no trouble finding a job in either the food service or housekeeping industries


Goezer: Are you a God?
Ray: No
Goezer: Then... DIE!!!!!!!
Winston: Ray, when somone asks if you're a God you say YES!


Egon: Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by Dickless here
Mayor: Is this true?
Venkman (indicating Walter Peck): Yes its true, this man has no dick

This was on Channel 5 at the weekend. Just a stone cold classic film. I don't know why but I always have a good old chuckle at...

Ray: Hey, where do these stairs go?
Peter: ...They go up.

So many great lines though, I could be here all evening quoting all my favourites

Fave line and best reaction; Venkman, to the elderly librarian..

"Alice, are you, menstruating right now? "

Suit : " What the hell's that got to do with anything?! "

Venkman:" Back off man. I'm a scientist ".

Ghostbusters was like the peak of a 6 year run of superb comedies from a group of comics with links to Saturday Night Live and/or National Lampoons. Think it went something like this:

Animal House
Meatballs
Caddyshack
The Blues Brothers
Stripes
National Lampoon’s Vacation
Trading Places
Ghostbusters

One hell of a run when you think about it. Ghostbusters was obviously the most lucrative in terms of merchandise deriving from how iconic it was - the song, the logo, the premise, Slimer etc.

Instead of a straight second sequel I'd prefer a 'send up' remake to be honest. Something like Tropic Thunder meets This Is The End. Only less screwball.

A premise where, for instance, four comedy actors remake Ghostbusters, only to find themselves having to become them and save NYC. Venkman, Stantz etc would appear as ghosts, despite not being real within our universe. The actors could also appear as themselves. Slimer would be back, as would Marshmallow Man.

Doh! Ray: Re! Egon: Egon!

Dr. Peter Venkman: How's the grid holding up?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Not good.
Winston Zeddemore: Tell him about the Twinkie.
Dr. Peter Venkman: What about the Twinkie?

Classic film

I didn't see Ghostbusters when it first came out at the cinema, and couldn't see what the fuss was about when I saw it on telly. I thought the second film was a lot better than the first, though. I particularly liked the scene in the court room, when the judge starts off normal and calm, then becomes increasingly aggressive and manic, until all the weird stuff starts happening.

Louis and Janine emerge from the fire station, after Walter Peck switches off the Ecto Containment Unit and the ghosts escape out of the roof of the fire station.

Louis (now The Gatekeeper):"It must be a sign!"
Janine:"It's a sign, alright-going out of business!"

Classic! I was a huge Ghostbusters fan as a kid, had all the toys too (I've still got some of them to this day, too!)!

Ray: 'Listen... do you smell something?'

Egon: Forty years of darkness. Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Winston: The Dead rising from the grave!
Peter: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together. It's mass hysteria!

Egon Spengler: There's something very important I forgot to tell you.
Peter Venkman: What?
Spengler: Don't cross the streams.
Venkman: Why?
Spengler: It would be bad.
Venkman: I'm fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, "bad"?
Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Venkman: Right. That's bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.

Good film. Still fun to watch after all these years. And it still resonates with young kids today. As a matter of fact, yesterday I saw 4 kids trick or treating in full Ghostbuster gear. They had the uniform, the proton pack, the whole works - even a ghost trap.

Venkman (about Slimer): Its.. right here, Ray.. It's looking... at me!
Ray: He's an ugly little spud, isnt he?
Venkman: I think he can hear you, Ray.

Awesome, watched if last night as my Halloween movie

Off to New York this time next year, have already let my wife know I'm taking her to see some NY firemen (in a certain firehouse that's still active!), my reason'll go over her head but we'll both be happy.

Best scene in the film, I love ghostbusters and it never stops making me laugh

Venkman - Someone blows there nose and you wanna keep it.

Winston: I'm Winston Zeddmore, Your Honor. I've only been with the company for a couple of weeks, but these things are real. Since I joined these men, I've seen shit that'll turn you white.

Love that scene However, why doesnt J Edgar Hoover appear after Venkman is explaining what Gozer meant in his example?

Love this film and remember seeing it at the cinema when I was 9. Even though I've got it on DVD, I still watch it on TV. I am surprised that it is shown uncut (barring the s-word on some channels) during the day, including Ray's dream oral scene, which is the reason why last year its rating was raised from PG to 12. Nevertheless, still a brilliant film 30 years on.

I might be in the minority - whilst I absolutely love Ghostbusters, I just can't take to the Ghostbusters II movie. I've probably only sat through it a few times. I just don't enjoy it at all for some reason. *shrugs*
