I picked up the double-feature set of Ghostbusters 1 & 2 the other day, knowing that I remember liking those movies. I sat down and watched the first with the family last night, and we all enjoyed it. It occurs to me that Ghostbusters is one of those movies that is just timeless. It’s as good today as it was 25 years ago. Sure, you can look at a few of the creatures in the movie and think that they could have been just a bit better with today’s technology, but that’s true with just about any movie.
I love this part of the movie:
Dr. Egon Spengler: There’s something very important I forgot to tell you.
Dr. Peter Venkman: What?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Don’t cross the streams.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Why?
Dr. Egon Spengler: It would be bad.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I’m fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, “bad”?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Dr Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Right. That’s bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.
