Ghostbusters (Dir. Ivan Reitman, 1984)
Gaggles of little green ghosts, spooks and a host of paranormal occurrences are on the rampage in New York. Can anyone save the world from these supernatural creatures? Only three unemployed, and enterprising, university parapsychologists are up to the task...!
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis star as the freelance crusaders who team up and become 'The Ghostbusters'. Armed with ectoplasmic guns and patented booby traps, they walk a fine line between scientific genius and lunacy in their quest to rid the city of these slimey, supernatural monsters. You don't need extra sensory perception to see why Ghostbusters is loved by the critics, adults and kids alike. "Just don't cross the beams!"
Ghostbusters 2 (Dir. Ivan Reitman, 1989)
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis take up their proton packs once more to battle the forces of evil in Manhattan! After waging a war on slime that cost New York City millions, the Ghostbusters find themselves out of business - until an ancient tyrant, preparing to return to the Earthly domain through his portrait at the Manhattan Museum of Art, sets his sights on Dana Barrett's baby as the new home for his wicked soul! With the help of the Museum's possessed curator, he plans to turn New York into a really scary place to live! Now only the Ghostbusters can save New York City, by turning paranormal pest control into an art form!
There's a great full colour booklet that contains a number of production notes and sketches along with a fun little interview with producer Joe Medjuck.
The first film contains three behind the scenes featurettes, one being a large retrospective interview with the special effects crew, another being a promotional/behind the scenes feature which is both informative and entertaining. The Region 1 set (this one) has one more featurette over the Australian release (which unfortunately also misses out on the cartoon episodes), which is another retrospective piece but focuses more on the stars and key crew members.
You also get a slew of deleted scenes, a storyboard to film comparison feature, behind the scenes photo and art galleries, along with trailers. Unfortunately, and very surprisingly, there is no Ray Parker Jnr music video! However the animated episodes are a real treat. They are as follows:
The Real Ghostbusters: Citizen Ghost – goes over the events immediately following the film, revealing why they all have new costumes in the cartoon, and basically providing a bridge between the movie and the cartoon series. When the remnant psychokinetic energy absorbed by their suits isn't dealt with promptly, the ecto energy creates doppelgangers from the suits and the ghost Ghostbusters face off against the real Ghostbusters. This is a great little episode with some of the best animation of the series (and a far cry better than the shit kids watch these days!) and is considered a classic amidst the rabid fanbase.
