In 1984 one of the best movies ever made was released, the first Ghostbusters. I highly recommend this movie if you haven’t seen it, which should be considered crime. It was one of my favorite movies when I was growing up and still is. There was never a dull moment because the movie had the best of both worlds, action and a comedy. The action scenes were awesome. The ones in particular, which stood out, were when slimmer was first introduced and when the sky began twisting and turning ominously. However, the best scene without a doubt in the flick is when Marshmallow Man came storming through New York City. Marshmallow man is by one of the most badass bad guys ever. Some of the comedic scenes were pretty funny, especially when Slimer spit all his green spit all over the Ghostbusters. The cast itself was pretty good you had Dan Akroyd, Bill Murray, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver. As good as the cast was, it’s what helped make the movie a distinctly 1980’s film. Bill Murray and Dan Akroyd and Rick Moranis were at the peak of their comedic careers. Sigourney Weaver’s career skyrocket after this movie. Even the theme song from the movie has electronic beats in the background, which was typical of 1980’s movies. How can you not like the Ghostbusters? They have a cool office in an abandoned firehouse, a sick car. However, best of all the badass weapons like the backpack with the laser gun to hold the ghosts in place and the ghost trap. There is no reason for you not to watch this movie.
