The Ghostbusters Baseball Jersey

I’m cooking up an article that I think people will like, but I couldn’t have had it ready for today unless I rushed it and pulled an all-nighter. And I’d rather give what I’m working on the proper attention that it deserves. That said, I didn’t want to leave anyone hanging for Friday content. As you may recall, I created baseball jerseys for various directors a few months ago. Eventually, I’d like to revisit that for individual movies. The only one I’ve completed so far is for one of the most fun movies you’ll ever see- Ghostbusters. Continue reading

As you probably recall, I saw Ghostbusters on the big screen a few weeks ago. It whetted my appetite to re-watch the much-maligned sequel. The original is a blast in every way. The sequel was… not good, but I enjoyed it, just like I have all the other times I’ve seen it. However, there’s one prevailing theme throughout both films. Specifically, other than Ray Parker, Jr.’s titular theme song and “Higher and Higher”, both films are crawling with horrible, horrible songs. For instance… Continue reading

We Are All Ghostbusters

I took in a midnight showing of Ghostbusters (1984) over the weekend. While I’ve seen every part of that movie tens of times since I first saw it, I hadn’t sat down and watched it from start to finish since I saw it in the theater when I was eight years old. The re-watch reminded me that Ghostbusters is an infinitely lovable movie with enduring charm.   Continue reading

The Evolution of the Movie Trailer

Movie trailers have taken on a life of their own. We’ve reached a point as a movie-watching society where people will go see films that they’re less interested in, purely in the hopes of catching a trailer for an upcoming movie with tremendous buzz. The whole process is absolutely fascinating. Despite the fact that most movie trailer styles have had an impact on the trailers of the modern era, trailers haven’t always had such importance for movie-goers and studios. Someone had to come up with the idea and implement it. Continue reading

Movies That Scared the Crap Out of Me When I was a Kid

Horror is a lot like violence and pornography. The more you see of it, the less impact it has. Viewers eventually become desensitized to it to varying degrees. But in childhood, everything is fresh and new. There’s no desensitization at all. Horror movies are at their most shocking at that point in a person’s life. In my own childhood, there were several films that scared the crap out of me–figuratively, of course. These are the movies that gave me a proper appreciation for the horror genre. Here’s a list of these films. Continue reading
