97: “There Is No Dana, Only Zuul” – Ghostbusters & Ghostbusters II
In our latest episode, we answer the existential question that has plagued mankind for centuries:
Who you gonna call?
Join us as we take a look back at Ivan Reitman’s groundbreaking action-comedy GHOSTBUSTERS (1984) and its spooky, silly sequel GHOSTBUSTERS II (1988). The film that launched a thousand merchandise opportunities, “Ghostbusters” began as something VERY different in the mind of co-writer and co-star Dan Aykroyd and ended up being one of the most successful movie franchises of all time.
Nearly 40 years after the original film’s debut, does “Ghostbusters” stand proudly like the Statue of Liberty strolling through the streets of Manhattan? Or is it more like a river of slime? We’ve got some unfinished business with Peter, Ray, and Egon – and, unlike the movie, we don’t forget Winston.
We ain’t afraid of no ghosts… but we are a little anxious about incurring the wrath of Ghostbusters loyalists with our critique of these beloved films.
