Ghostbusters - 5/11/13
This week, Brent insists asks "who you gonna call?" and we answer with a resounding: Ghostbusters (1984). As it nears it's 30th birthday, the Ghostbusters phenomenon shows no sign of slowing down, with a recent release of a video game, featuring the voices of all the lead actors, and the continued threat of a Ghostbusters 3. We go after Ghostbusters' cinematic lineage, featuring appearances by The Three Stooges, Abbott & Costello and Mickey Mouse, Saturday morning cartoons, Star Wars and more that lead to the creation of the world's first multi-million-dollar-visual-effects-heavy-scare-comedy. Plus, it almost comes to blows as RoboCop's status as a B-team cinematic superhero comes up for debate, and Brent and Sean relate spellbinding stories about meeting Bill Murray.
