Product Description

Suit up for classic comedy! When kooky, spooky college profs Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) and Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) lose their university jobs, they decide to go freelance, de-haunting houses in a new ghost removal service. As soon as they open their doors, their first order of business becomes saving beautiful cellist Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) and nerdy Louis Tully (Rick Moranis), who’ve inadvertently opened the gates of hell…right in their own apartment building!

From Amazon.co.uk

Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis wrote the script, but Bill Murray gets all the best lines and moments in this 1984 comedy directed by Ivan Reitman (Meatballs). The three comics, plus Ernie Hudson, play the New York City-based team that provides supernatural pest control, and Sigourney Weaver is the love interest possessed by an ancient demon. Reitman and company are full of original ideas about hobgoblins--who knew they could "slime" people with green plasma goo?--but hovering above the plot is Murray's patented ironic view of all the action. Still a lot of fun, and an obvious model for sci-fi comedies such as Men in Black. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ghostbusters are still well worth a call 15 Mar 2006
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Ghostbusters was a huge hit back in 1984, and the ubiquitous presence of Ray Parker, Jr.'s theme song was a seemingly nonstop presence on the radio for months and months – I'm still trying to get that silly song, which seemed awfully cool at the time, out of my head. I was a kid when the film was released, so it's no surprise the film was funnier to me then than it is now, but Ghostbusters has actually aged fairly well. Typified by Bill Murray's deadpan manner, the humor here is all about delivery and timing and atmosphere. It appears as if Bill Murray is making up at least half of his lines as he goes along, which means he is in top form. Dan Aykroyd plays second fiddle in the lineup, but Aykroyd has always played a mean second fiddle. I wouldn't be able to identify Harold Ramis by name just by watching him perform, but he's definitely a full-fledged member of the Ghostbusters comedy tri-fecta (not to mention co-writer with Aykroyd), which actually becomes a foursome midway through the film with the addition of Ernie Hudson. I still can't say I care for Sigourney Weaver all that much, but she certainly adds something to the film as the guys' first customer, the object of Dr. Venkman's (Murray) affections, and eventually the conduit for Zuul's incarnation into the world of man. Supporting actors? Ghostbusters has you covered with Annie Potts as the Ghostbusters receptionist and Rick Moranis as the rather hapless Louis Tully. Up until his possession by a demonic dog, Moranis still seems to exude a little of his Bob McKenzie persona (although he does not imbibe copious amounts of beer or utter the word "hoser" a single time).

5.0 out of 5 stars Grainy but good transfer of a classic 29 Oct 2009
By Mr. Blu
Format:Blu-ray
Yes, it's true the film has a lot of grain, but nowhere near as much as, say, "Friday the 13th Part III" the world heavyweight champion for unloveable grain. And surprisingly there are plenty of dark and indoor scenes with very minimal grain. The other picture quality caveat is that a lot of mid-long shots are sometimes lacking in sharpness; and this does not always look like a stylistic choice. But there are countless close-ups and plenty of long shots which are very sharp. Especially the close-ups often have unbelievable depth and plasticity for a 25 year old film. When Winston is shown in close-up during the showdown with Zuul, this looks like a film from this or last year!

"Ghostbusters" has also been accused of having washed-out colours on BD, well the fire-engine red of the ecto-containment system in their cellar is superb and colours generally are very good; nothing like "Halloween" which is a little washed-out. Dana's appartment looks a bit faded, but I think that's how her furniture is supposed to look. Some of the FX are outed as a bit poor by HD such as the "streams" and the dogs, but the library ghost, Slimer, and Mr Stay Puft all look great in HD. And there is a shot of sky-scrapers a little before Dana's roof blows that holds its own with the typical HD showcase shots of many films made after the launch of Blu-Ray as a format. The soundtrack is occasionally a bit weak but for the most part more than acceptable, above all in the final showdown scenes and whenever the theme music is pumped out.

The film is a classic and needs no recommendation at this stage. If you are considering upgrading, do it unless you have an absolute allergy to grain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghostbusters 4K resolution review 20 Sep 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Finally, after the downright awful first release of Ghostbusters on Blu Ray, Sony have gone back to the original master & rescanned it at 4K resolution (the same as Blade Runner The Final Cut, Lawrence Of Arabia, Taxi Driver etc). For those of you who don't know how 4K works, here's a little bit of information.

Firstly, the film was not shot in 4K. It has been rescanned from the original negatives at 4K, then digitally downscaled to 2K, in order for it (along with all the other 4K releases) to be used on 1080p HD systems (HDTV, Blu Ray). This has resulted in a mind blowing level of resolution, never previously seen; 4K = four times the resolution of 1080p.

Now, at the moment the only way to get the full 4K resolution experience, is to have VERY deep pockets. For example, Sonys 4K TVs retail from approx £2'500+ & you'd also need a 4K Blu Ray player, along with a pre-amp capable of processing the 7.1 surround sound.

So, those who've given the 4K version of Ghostbusters negative reviews are either very well off & are playing it through badly set up 4K systems, or they've played it through a standard 1080p HD TV & Blu Ray player.

Overall, this won't put me off purchasing the newly rescanned version of Ghostbusters. I'll just have to spend a bit of time playing with the settings on my HDTV & Blu Ray Player.

NOTE TO AMAZON:
Please stop combining the reviews for previous releases / versions of products. This causes confusion for customers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Even with Grain 23 Jan 2011
By Keith
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I read a lot of reviews of this before buying it and many of them complained about the grain on the transfer. Some more so that others.

I already own the film on DVD but wanted it on Blu Ray as I am in the process of replacing my collection with Blu Ray and it's one of my all time favourite films.

Took a gamble and it paid off.

Yes, there is grain on the movie. More obvious in the library scene at the start or the film and in some of the dark scenes. However, this does not detract from the movie or general quality of the film on Blu Ray. I don't recall this on the DVD so it's obviously a perculiarity of the Blu Ray transfer.

Colours are vivid and detail crisp and in every other way it is what you'd expect from a Blu Ray movie.

4 stars as there is some obvious grain.
