Don’t keep it to yourself, SHARE the nostalgia! #halloween #nostalgia
Ivan Reitman’s film starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, and Rick Moranis was an instant hit, and has to be one of the cult movies of the 1980s.
It was nominated for two Oscars at the 57th Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects and Best Original Song. When it was originally release, the film was number one at the US box office for five consecutive weeks, grossing $99.8 million.
Anyone born before the 1990s will no doubt remember the theme song “Ghostbusters,” written and performed by Ray Parker, Jr., which sparked the catchphrases “Who you gonna call?” and “I ain’t afraid of no ghost.”
To make you feel a bit more nostalgic, here’s a reminder of some more of the countless classic quotes from the movie ……
Egon Spengler: Don’t cross the streams.
Peter Venkman: Why?
Egon Spengler: It would be bad.
Peter Venkman: I’m fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, “bad”?
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.
Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Peter Venkman: Right. That’s bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.
Ray Stantz: You know, it just occurred to me that we really haven’t had a successful test of this equipment.
Egon Spengler: I blame myself.
Peter Venkman: So do I.
Ray Stantz: Well, no sense in worrying about it now.
Peter Venkman: Why worry? Each one of us is carrying an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on his back.
Ray Stantz: Your girlfriend lives in the corner penthouse… of Spook Central.
Peter Venkman: She’s not my girlfriend. I find her interesting because she’s a client and because she sleeps above her covers… *four feet* above her covers. She barks, she drools, she claws!
Gozer: Are you a god?
Ray Stantz: No.
Gozer: Then… DIE!
Winston Zeddemore: Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a god, you say “YES”!
Go see it next week, and let us know if it’s still as good as you remember!
