retro trailer: ‘Ghostbusters’

Take a look back at an old trailer…


I never, ever tire of this movie. I’ve memorized it — not deliberately, just through endless re-viewings. It has a quote for every occasion, from which springs a big chunk of my vernacular.

I love love love this movie.

That is all.

My review is here.

Ghostbusters is available on Region 1 DVD from Amazon.com and from Amazon.ca, and on Region 2 DVD from Amazon U.K.

  • Dr. Rocketscience

    Hey, where do these stairs go?

  • Winston: Now, are we actually gonna go before a federal judge, and tell him that some moldy Babylonian god is going to drop in on Central Park West, and start tearing up the city?

    Egon: Sumerian, not Babylonian.

    Venkman: Yeah, big difference.

    Yes, Ray, no human would stack books that way.

    I collect spores, molds and fungus.

    Because he’s a tubby goof, Ray Stanz doesn’t get enough credit for being almost as much of a scientist as Egon Spengler.

    My favorite scene is the part where Egon and Ray decide to research the building history before rushing in to battle. Just the simple fact that they do this, and so thoroughly, makes me give the thumbs up.

  • I think my favorite ghostbusters callback comes from part 2… anytime I’m with someone who yells out “HELLO” or “ECHO” I like to shout back

    WIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNSSSTOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!

  • Oh but also, anytime someone asks “Is this true?” it’s important to respond with

    “Yes, it’s true. This man has no dick.”

  • Orangutan

    One of my best friends is named Ray. And he’s my best friend because he never gets tired of either hearing quotes from this movie (“Go get her, Ray!”) or quoting it himself (“I was present at an undersea, unexplained mass sponge migration.”). :D

    I read an interview with William Atherton recently in which he mentioned that people still greet him on the street as “dickless” on occasion . . . ouch.
