Ghostbusters Review

Okay, probably seems silly that I am reviewing a movie from the 80’s.


We have Family Movie Night on most Friday nights. Usually involving some kind of finger food that is living room safe, and, lately DH and I have been catching the kids up on movies from our childhood. Now that they are older and can get more of the humor and not be too bored with the cheesy special effects, it’s actually been a lot of fun.

Strange was we watched this one the week before Harold Ramis passed away.

It had been several years since I sat and watched this one straight through, and, I completely forgotten how much I LOVE this movie. Yes, it’s slightly cheesy sci-fi, but, it’s also the basic battle between good and evil blended with a guys down on their luck make it big story. Plus, it’s so much fun to watch guys like Dan Aykroyd, Rick Moranis and Bill Murray all young and just starting in the big movie part of their career. Plus, pre-Alien Sigourney Weaver. If you haven’t seen it, please do. It really is worth it. It’s only 107 minutes according to Wiki lol. Yes, there is some “anti-government” undertones at parts when the EPA guy tries to shut them down, but it’s a lot milder of a “statement” than those that are made in most modern movies. Mostly, it’s just fun and silliness and a little bit of scary. (Even tho, really, how scary is a 20 story tall marshmallow man?)

Since I grade on a curve for the decade it’s from, I do give this 5 stars. There is a plot, it’s a cult classic, and the effects were spectacular for the time.

Okay, so this is where I am supposed to be witty and cute and tell you how funny and awesome I am to get you to read my blog. Well….. not sure how that is going to work. I am a stay at home mom of two, one is my minime high school student and theater chick, the other is my homeschooled dancing dude, who is momma’s lil man. I get to stay at home and do all this cool stuff thanks to my awesomeness hubby who works his tush off so I can. Of course staying at home isn’t for everybody, and we’ll dive into THAT some day I’m sure, but I love it, and I have my crafts to keep me busy. That is what started this whole thing. Hubby said to me “babe, you should start blogging” and well, here I am. Good luck and enjoy! And yes, I do approve all comments, but don't think I'm censoring everybody. I will let negative ones through as long as everybody plays nice. View all posts by craftymomchronicles
