A Horrifying Confession

I have actually never seen any of the Ghostbuster movies.

Feel free to commence mocking.

    Mock, mock! I mock you!

    Next you'll say you never say The Real Ghostbusters.

    Spluh?

    Really? How could you possibly avoid seeing them? They seem to show them constantly on about half the networks year round these days. Especially Ghostbusters 2.

    OTOH - though I'm pained for your cultural loss in not having seen Ghostbusters, I'm kind of sort of jealous of anyone who hasn't seen Ghostbusters 2. I wish I hadn't seen Ghostbusters 2. Sigh.

    Instead of mocking, I insist you rectify your situation by finding them and watching them. The 2nd isn't as bad as everyone claims, but the first is hands down an absolute classic.

    That's the saddest thing I've heard all day. You should remedy that this Halloween. I think we're going to do a Ghostbusters double feature as always and then try to branch out with something a little more scary for the kidlet, who thinks she's ready.

    If you have Netflix, the first one is available for instant streaming. That's how I watched it a few nights ago.

    I won't mock you, as I don't think I've seen either of them the whole way through. I liked the parts I watched.

    And here I was feeling bad about myself for only seeing #1.

    You know what really pissed me off about Ghostbusters? The very first scene of the first movie. (I think it was the first). Before becoming a Ghostbuster, Bill Murray is testing a "random guy" and a "cute girl" for psychic ability, and giving them an electric shock if they got one wrong.

    Except he doesn't want to shock the cute girl, so he keeps lying and saying she got it right, and only shocking the guy. But then, after a few shocks, the guy starts getting the answers right, but Bill Murray KEEPS SHOCKING HIM. There was no reason for that. He didn't need to keep shocking the guy in order to flirt with the cute girl.

    Everywhere else in the movie, Bill Murray was just kind of lazy and stupid (but in the "cute way" that only exists in movies.) In the psychic scene, though, he was just mean, and that colored the entire movie for me.

    Actually, there is a reason he keeps shocking the guy. He's testing whether NEGATIVE reinforcement enhances ESP. So he keeps zapping the guy, and his ability to see the hidden cards gets better and better.

    And yes, anyone who hasn't seen this movie needs to do so. Skip the second one if you want, but the first is pure awesome wonderfulness.

    Sweet Jesus, I don't even know you any more! Seriously, how can this beeeeee?

    There is clearly one solution for this terrible travesty - A Halloween Movie Marathon! You can watch both movies with popcorn and/or candy corn.

    Later on, if you are so inspired, you can even get the video game where you can run around busting ghosts yourself, alongside a smart-assed Bill Murray. Good fun for all!

    A flashback: I was 12, going on 13, when "Ghostbusters" came out, and it was all I could do to persuade my mom that I was old enough to see it in the theater. On the other hand, I had to wait and see "Beetlejuice" on home video because I failed to convince my mom that a 15-year-old could handle that one.
