5.0 out of 5 stars best film ever made! no, seriously...!, 9 Feb 2006
This review is from: Ghostbusters [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
i watched this on worn out vhs ENDLESSLY when i was a kid. WHAT a fantastic film. everything about this film is superlative. the soundtrack (magic, saving the day), the theme tune (come on! who you gonna call?), the script, the effects (sorry, but CGI has nothing on this film - CGI is rarely better than the best pre-CGI effects - how could CGI have bettered the stay puft marshmallow man???), the plot, subplots, the actors (rick moranis, funniest nerd in cinematic history) - i don't tend to like hollywood blockbusters as a rule, but this is so superb i can't praise it enough. and eerie, too - when the stay puft man turns evil it strikes the fear of ... well, white confectionery into me. words cannot convey the excellence of ghostbusters, which has something akin to a euphoric effect on me - which doesn't often happen with a film. should add that i have no truck with either sequel or spin-offs, but this remains a monument to 80s cinema.
