Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 03, 2014

The 1984 film Ghostbusters is currently in theaters for a week-long engagement that lasts until Sept. 4, in honor of its 30th anniversary. Since its release, the movie starring Dan Ackroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis has become a comedy classic. Director Ivan Reitman recalls how he felt when production began. "I was on the streets of Manhattan shooting with the four guys," he told the Los Angeles Times. "Seeing them in full regalia, I just had this special feeling. I thought, 'This looks so unusual and wonderful, I think this can work.'"

A silly movie, but better than most of the tripe put in theatres nowadays...

Awesome! I remember seeing it in theaters the first time around. A true classic in every sense.

I'm thinking about going to this with my sons. I don't think they've seen the film.

How old are they?

That opening scene was quite scary when I saw it as a kid in the theater.

The rest would be a blast for them at any age.

"How old are they?

I was older by the time this came out. But Star Wars was like this for me as a four year old. The first scene with Darth Vader scared the crap out of me. The rest of the movie was great fun.

A short while after I saw the movie, my mother took me to the local mall to meet "Darth Vader" (pretty convincing guy in a costume). She hadn't seen the movie and was like "What's the matter? You love Star Wars!" when I wouldn't go anywhere near the guy.

Funny. Darth Vader when I was 6 didn't scare me, but that scene where the ghost suddenly changes and screams freaked me out at 13.

I think I was not prepared for actual scares in a movie starring the cast of Stripes. LOVED Stripes as a kid.

High school and middle school, so it should be pretty tame fare for them compared to some newer movies.

At those ages, and with what she wears at the end of the movie, be prepared for a Siquorney(sp?) Weaver fixation.

They'll be fine.

I made my boys watch The Exorcist when they were 8.

Kanrei is right - she looked pretty hot at the end of the movie, until she turned into a dog that is.

I was joking with that one.

Or you could save the $96.23 rip off price for movies and snacks and do what I did a couple months: download it and watch it with the kids while enjoying some homemade hotdogs and popcorn.

Anyone remember Poltergeist? Saw that one in the theater at 8-9 years old. That scene where the toy clown sneak attacks the kid from under the bed messed me up for a few years. I still hate the little bastard (the clown, not the kid).

Oh My G-d, that freaking clown is why I am scared of clowns to this day. Poltergeist messed me up more than any horror movie I ever saw, and that one was only PG.

Come to think of it, so was Jaws, and both were also Spielberg movies.

Why does Spielberg hate kids?

We only go to movies once every two months or so, so it's not that ridiculous of a hit to the pocketbook, and we bring in candy from CVS or Walgreens.

I saw Jaws at a younger age and it never bothered me. Neither did Alien. Its weird how certain scenes strike a nerve and other much more gory scenes don't. It Poltergeist, the clown actually doesn't hurt the kid and the kid rips it limb from limb but that didn't matter to me....

Sneaking candy into a theatre is against the law. Rcade and his family probably also go theatre hopping from one movie to the next without buying tickets.

#17 GASP! Candy sneaking is not a victimless crime! What about the poor people? WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN!!???

Great clip. I never saw that movie. I love that line.

Bad Guy: I'll blow this whole place up.

Cobra/Stallone: Go ahead, I don't shop here.

hahah That is great.

Stallone / Cobra: :You're the disease, I'm the cure."

Johnny Carson's take: "Stallone is the disease, acting lessons are the cure."

Go when it's cold and wear coats with inside pockets. Bring in 2 bottles of soda with flexible tubing for straws.
