Ghostbusters (1984 Original) Reviews
I am going to get such a bollocking for this review...but here it goes...
The main plot of Ghostbusters basically entails three scientific parapsychologists who aim to help others with their paranormal removal service based in New York City.
So, Ghostbusters has some pretty impressive visuals for the time. Actually, really superb effects that even hold up today. That, and some great one liners from Bill Muarry make up the shining parts of this movie. Sure, it can also be periodically fun, I admit seeing a giant Marshmallow man tear through the streets of New York in fury is highly amusing and playful.
That's all I have to praise about Ghostbusters.
Go ahead, say what you want down in the comments, but it is beyond physically comprehensible to me how this is considered a 'Masterpiece' in some minds. First of all, where is the plot? There is literally no driving motive in this entire film apart from 'We're the Ghostbusters so....well yeah we have to' and a shoehorned post-appocalypto mumbo jumbo wave to start off the ending in the third act. We have characters, who you simply do not care about because the story rams them in head first. The opening title of 'Ghostbusters' does not layer something comical, humorous, spooky or profane. No. It layers a fucking street. This seems to be a table read of Ghostbusters, with some actors saying what they're going to think, say and do without doing it. I swear on my mothers life, I had to check if I was watching 'Ghostbusters 2' accidentally in light of the sequels mixed reviews before I realised I was watching what in my mind, is now one of the most over-hyped, overplayed and unbelievably praised films of all time.
Who you gonna call? Someone more entertaining and Charming hopefully. I swear, If the SNL sketch 'funinism' reboot is better than this, I will be so internally broken.
I went to see this movie as a Child, It was Awesome then.
It still has not let me down, even today!
Ghostbusters es sin duda original, y muy divertida. Pero, siendo objetivos, los efectos especiales hechos por computadora no son del todo convincente, y el guión es muy simple (a pesar de maquillarlo con unas cuantas palabras seudocientíficas), si bien no es una película de mi gusto buena, cumple su función de entretener, así que solo espera eso, entretenerte un momento, tal vez luego se te olvide lo que viste, a no ser que seas un ferviente fan ochentero.
