Started this weeks ago but kept getting busy with other stuff, but I found the time to finish it today. I really wanted that perspective where we are looking up at her, it turned out ok but i need to work on it some more.
So I watched the OG Ghostbusters for the first time in a while
and Im????? actually crying???
I mean what is up with these gd fuckboys and their defense of this film as a Paragon of True Cinema its such a mediocre cheeseball movie
Like…….does anyone actually remember the plot??? Because I do. Now. Kind of. It’s already leaving me
DEMONIC POSSESSION AND AN APOCALYPSE PLOT?? IN A MOVIE CALLED “GHOSTBUSTERS”?
ZUUL?? GOZER THE GOZERIAN??
ancient sumeria now theres some history for ya
SIGOURNEY WEAVER COVERED IN GLITTER AND AN OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS?? A GLITTERY OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS?? I mean werk girl but the campy-ness levels are insane
The special effects are incredible for their time but also sometimes…so 80s??? it kills me honestly when she opened her fridge and there was like a little pink world inside that was supposed to be trippy omggg
Bill Murray being front and center, doin that 1980s Bill Murray thing™
(The 1980s Bill Murray thing I think can be summarized by that one post: “ **holds a baby carrot like a cigarette* I’m just….. over it, you know? ”)
Can I just
Bill Murray’s character is THE ACTUAL WORST
he spends the entirety of his VERY FIRST SCENE trying to fuck his student
and its just creepy as fuck
but its ESPECIALLY frightening when hes tryna get Sigourney Weaver like
“Haha you say you have a ‘ghost’ in your ‘apartment’? I believe you sweetcheeks lets go take a look right now ok we can go RIGHT NOW…jk lets drop this ruse we both know why you asked me over you dont have to try so hard to get my attention of course I’ll go out with you”
“Youre possessed by an ancient demon!!!…but that ancient demon is horny and youre not around to protest so why not”
(Ok well maybe I can see how fuckboys wouldnt want THAT legacy of playful misogyny to be overshadowed by Females)
AND HES BASICALLY THE MAIN CHARACTER LIKE THE OTHER GUYS ARE BARELY FLESHED OUT AS CHARACTERS ITS THE GODDAMN PETER VENKMAN SHOW
I reaaaally dont miss the “I see you, I wanna bang you, and I wont take no for an answer, arent I an endearing man-boy of a character” thing alot of 80s and 90s movies were just so blatant about
The only truly good thing in that movie is Egon/Annie
May they one day realize theyre too good for this place and flee to have beautiful sassy nearsighted babies
TL;DR THE OG GHOSTBUSTERS IS AN ACTUAL HOT MESS THAT IS SEMI FUNNY AND V CORNY AND LIKE OBVIOUSLY A POP CULTURE ICON
