I just watched Ghostbusters again on the Hallmark channel. It was edited for TV and had commercial breaks, but hey, still fun to watch.

1. Is this Bill Murray's best movie performance? Or is Groundhog Day better?

2. Is there anything sexier than a levitating Sigourney Weaver?

4. If you were a kid when you first saw Ghostbusters, did you beg your parents to buy you Ghostbusters merchandise? My nephew was born in 1984, the year Ghostbusters came out, but he discovered the movie on video and became obsessed to the point of collecting Ghostbusters stuff. My sister was quite relieved when the obsession passed, but she tolerated it because he was also obsessed with dinosaurs as a kid.

5. If you were a kid when you first saw Ghostbusters, tell the truth, did Zuul scare the crap outta you?

6. It being the 1980's when Ghostbusters became a big hit, do you have the feeling that after the movie came out, half the women in Manhattan went to the clubs looking like Gozer? Is a flattop on a woman sexy?

7. Best line in the movie: "Ray, when someone asks if you're a god, you say yes!"

8. Would you let Rick Moranis do your taxes before he became The Keymaster?

9. Would you let Rick Moranis do your taxes AFTER he became The Keymaster?

10. When watching the movie, did you ever get the urge to tell Annie Potts to ditch those ridiculously large glasses already?

11. Bonus question: Assuming the Stay Puft Marshmallow man was vegan, can you imagine the size of the s'more you could make with him?

12. Another bonus question: Did anyone who fell in love with the first movie bother to watch the sequel? I haven't. Is it worth seeing?

Ghostbusters is nothing less than EPIC. Every time I watch it, it's a pure nostalgia fest. Grew up with all the toys, the cartoon series, the movies.

Is part two worth watching? Ehhhh, I think so. I have probably seen it only a total of five times in my life. I've seen the first one probably over a hundred times, and the cartoon series, multiple times per episode. The boogeyman episodes were the best and actually scared the **** out of me.

2. Is there anything sexier than a levitating Sigourney Weaver? Yes, an alien ass-kicking Sigourney Weaver
Or a battling for gorillas Sigourney Weaver.


4. If you were a kid when you first saw Ghostbusters, did you beg your parents to buy you Ghostbusters merchandise? My nephew was born in 1984, the year Ghostbusters came out, but he discovered the movie on video and became obsessed to the point of collecting Ghostbusters stuff. My sister was quite relieved when the obsession passed, but she tolerated it because he was also obsessed with dinosaurs as a kid. Honestly, Ghostbusters scared me as a kid. But I remember kids at school having Ghostbusters Slimer juice boxes. And I think I had a Slimer pencil.

5. If you were a kid when you first saw Ghostbusters, tell the truth, did Zuul scare the crap outta you? Oh yes


6. It being the 1980's when Ghostbusters became a big hit, do you have the feeling that after the movie came out, half the women in Manhattan went to the clubs looking like Gozer? Is a flattop on a woman sexy? Probably


7. Best line in the movie: "Ray, when someone asks if you're a god, you say yes!"


8. Would you let Rick Moranis do your taxes before he became The Keymaster? I wouldn't let Rick Moranis within a 100 ft radius of me.

9. Would you let Rick Moranis do your taxes AFTER he became The Keymaster? Hmmm...still no.

10. When watching the movie, did you ever get the urge to tell Annie Potts to ditch those ridiculously large glasses already? I do the same thing when watching Jane Fonda in "9 to 5"

11. Bonus question: Assuming the Stay Puft Marshmallow man was vegan, can you imagine the size of the s'more you could make with him? Ohhhh...heaven. But so sticky!!!

12. Another bonus question: Did anyone who fell in love with the first movie bother to watch the sequel? I haven't. Is it worth seeing?Yes! I love both of them. I'm not so sure about the one they're making now, but the sequel is good.

I want some Annie Potts glasses!

The sequel is pretty awful. It still has some of the charm, so it's worth watching but it doesn't come close to the first.

wheee! *rubs hands together* one of my all-time favorites!

1. Is this Bill Murray's best movie performance? Or is Groundhog Day better?
yes, one of his best! with Stripes and Caddyshack, 2nd and 3rd respectively. oh wait, and Rushmore! i
Bill!

2. Is there anything sexier than a levitating Sigourney Weaver?
yes!
when Venkman/Bill sees Dana/Sigourney for the first time and takes this running leap through his office area and then over the rail.

4. If you were a kid when you first saw Ghostbusters, did you beg your parents to buy you Ghostbusters merchandise? My nephew was born in 1984, the year Ghostbusters came out, but he discovered the movie on video and became obsessed to the point of collecting Ghostbusters stuff. My sister was quite relieved when the obsession passed, but she tolerated it because he was also obsessed with dinosaurs as a kid.
i got the soundtrack, a black tank top with the logo
, the vhs tape and more recently, the dvd.

5. If you were a kid when you first saw Ghostbusters, tell the truth, did Zuul scare the crap outta you?
nope, because i wasn't a kid.
[SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]the scariest crap outta part was when Dana sat down in her chair and those monster arms popped out and held her down...[/SPOILER]

6. It being the 1980's when Ghostbusters became a big hit, do you have the feeling that after the movie came out, half the women in Manhattan went to the clubs looking like Gozer? Is a flattop on a woman sexy?
yes and depending on the woman, yes.

7. Best line in the movie: "Ray, when someone asks if you're a god, you say yes!"
sooo many great lines...one of my faves is at the very beginning in the library when Dan/Ray says "Listen! do you smell something?"
oh and Harold/Egon's "Don't cross the streams!"

8. Would you let Rick Moranis do your taxes before he became The Keymaster?
sure. loved how he "explained" things. like when he's telling Dana when her tv was too loud and how he helped her and, and, and....he was great.

9. Would you let Rick Moranis do your taxes AFTER he became The Keymaster?
why ever not?

10. When watching the movie, did you ever get the urge to tell Annie Potts to ditch those ridiculously large glasses already?
nope. i love her character. when her and Bill/Venkman are having a spat and then she's all pissed off and answers the phone with a real Brooklyn(?) accent..."Ghostbusters, whaddayawant?"


11. Bonus question: Assuming the Stay Puft Marshmallow man was vegan, can you imagine the size of the s'more you could make with him?
that would be one mighty sch'more.

12. Another bonus question: Did anyone who fell in love with the first movie bother to watch the sequel? I haven't. Is it worth seeing?
as much as i love Ghostbusters and as many 100's of times i've seen it, can you believe i've never seen the sequel?!?
and i have no explanation why.


ETA: fixed Q5.

Bill Murray's best performance is when he creeps up on frat parties off screen and tells people their friends will never believe it.

I was born in 1984 and this was one of the first movies I saw at the theater. I never was obsessed with it growing up but it's one of my favorites.

There's something sexy about Gozer but I'm not sure if it's just the hair or the overall package.
