Product Description

Amazon.ca

Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis wrote the script, but Bill Murray gets all the best lines and moments in this 1984 comedy directed by Ivan Reitman (Meatballs). The three comics, plus Ernie Hudson, play the New York City-based team that provides supernatural pest control, and Sigourney Weaver is the love interest possessed by an ancient demon. Reitman and company are full of original ideas about hobgoblins--who knew they could "slime" people with green plasma goo?--but hovering above the plot is Murray's patented ironic view of all the action. Still a lot of fun, and an obvious model for sci-fi comedies such as Men in Black. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Plaisir de revoir Feb. 28 2012
By Jean
Format:DVD
Je remplace tranquillement mes VHS par des DVD et Blue Rays quand je ne trouve plus la version DVD. Revoir ce bon vieux film avec Bill Murray, et tous les autres acteurs tenir compte de ce qu'ils ont réussi à faire sans toutes les technologies d'aujourd'hui, bravo. C'est drole c'est vivant et distrayant. Dommage que la version 2 ne soit quand en anglais.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ghostbusters are still well worth a call Sept. 9 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Ghostbusters was a huge hit back in 1984, and the ubiquitous presence of Ray Parker, Jr.'s theme song was a seemingly nonstop presence on the radio for months and months - I'm still trying to get that silly song, which seemed awfully cool at the time, out of my head. I was a kid when the film was released, so it's no surprise the film was funnier to me then than it is now, but Ghostbusters has actually aged fairly well. Typified by Bill Murray's deadpan manner, the humor here is all about delivery and timing and atmosphere. It appears as if Bill Murray is making up at least half of his lines as he goes along, which means he is in top form. Dan Aykroyd plays second fiddle in the lineup, but Aykroyd has always played a mean second fiddle. I wouldn't be able to identify Harold Ramis by name just by watching him perform, but he's definitely a full-fledged member of the Ghostbusters comedy tri-fecta (not to mention co-writer with Aykroyd), which actually becomes a foursome midway through the film with the addition of Ernie Hudson. I still can't say I care for Sigourney Weaver all that much, but she certainly adds something to the film as the guys' first customer, the object of Dr. Venkman's (Murray) affections, and eventually the conduit for Zuul's incarnation into the world of man. Supporting actors? Ghostbusters has you covered with Annie Potts as the Ghostbusters receptionist and Rick Moranis as the rather hapless Louis Tully. Up until his possession by a demonic dog, Moranis still seems to exude a little of his Bob McKenzie persona (although he does not imbibe copious amounts of beer or utter the word "hoser" a single time).

As far as I know, Ghostbusters is the only film in which the Environmental Protection Agency comes very close to causing the end of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Murray at his comedic best June 26 2004
Format:DVD
It is said that the role of Peter Venkman was originally written for John Belushi, but we'll never know how he would have performed in the role. Fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum Bill Murray stepped into the role and ran away with the movie. Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd fit into the story like a glove in Ivan Reitman's masterpiece, but Bill Murray steals his every scene - which means most of the movie - with a performance full of dead-pan, ironic, world-weary, been-there-done-that hilariousness.
He has a sarcastic remark for every occasion, and the audience is the only one in on the joke every time.
When prospective girlfriend Dana Barrett (played by Sigourney Weaver, who gets a plum opportunity to show off her comedic skills) gets possessed by an evil demon, she is transformed into a slinky seductress. Bill Murray has come over to her apartment and in his hilarious dead-pan manner lets the audience know that he recognizes all is not normal with Ms. Barrett. As hilarious and sarcastic as Venkman is, he's at least a gentleman of sorts and doesn't take advantage of the situation when the demon tries to seduce him.
"Do you want this body?" Sigourney-demon asks him.
He pauses for a perfect beat before replying:
"Is this a trick question?"
The special effects don't look like the CGI visions that have been on screen for a couple of years (this was 1984) yet they're part of the fun. Even so, the special effects serve the story rather than up-staging it, and when the movie was initially released I remember howling with the audience after the first special-effect ghost "attacks" Bill Murray and leaves him on the floor in a glistening mess.
"He SLIMED me!" Venkman yelled, and we laughed our heads off.

"We've been going about this all wrong. This Mr. Stay-Puft is o.k. He's a sailor. He's in New York. We get this guy layed we won't have any trouble." - Pimpin' ain't easy in "Ghostbusters"
After 20 years since its 6/8/84 release, "Ghostbusters" became the biggest surprise hit of the summer of '84 and has generated a hit sequel, a popular cartoon series, a #1 hit single, by Ray Parker Jr., thats an ode to parapsychology, the world over (I ain't 'fraid of no ghost!) and has mass produced legions of no ghost t-shirts. The film showcases the best talent from its principal cast and "Ghostbusters" is one of Ivan Reitman's best films to date.
After being kicked out of NYU, three Parapsychologists decide to go into business for themselves, becoming an elite team of paranormal investigators & iliminators known, thru out the New York tri-state area, as the "Ghostbusters". There first case is a big one, as an ancient evil, known as Gozer, the Gozarian, awakens and is hellbent on ruling Earth, starting with the great state of New York.
The cast is great, with Bill Murray giving one of his best performances to date. Writer, Dan Aykroyd wrote "Ghostbusters" with John Belushi, Eddie Murphy and John Candy in mind. But, with the tragic death of Belushi, the meteoric popularity of Murphy (and his salary), & Candy not coming to grips with his character (he wanted Louis Tully to speak in a German accent with him owning, like, five Rottwielers for some unknown reason) Aykroyd retooled "Ghostbusters" with Murray, himself, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson as the team and Rick Moranis as the accountant geek who has a diehard crush on Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver).

Ghostbusters gets a '4K' remaster from Sony. There's no getting around the fact that the first Blu-ray offering of this much beloved 80's supernatural comedy had issues. Read more

This is not a great transfer. The video looks about the same as the DVD box set I have from maybe 7 or 8 years ago. But really its the audio that leaves a lot to be desired. Read more
